Engadget Review

Even if you rarely use the S Pen, the Galaxy Note 8.0 is a solid tablet in its own right.

Pros
  • Sturdy build quality
  • Strong performance
  • Vibrant display
  • Pen can now be used to tap the capacitive soft keys
  • Not many tablets this size with pen support
Cons
  • Disappointing battery life
  • No HSPA+ option in the US
