A time ago that the Galaxy Note 8 was officially presented and when it was released to the market there were 5 errors that Samsung committed. Yes, one of them is their small battery and is that we can not understand how the Note 8, a flagship of 1000 euros, can mount such a small battery.
We have already understood this 2017 that the mAh number is just a number. Samsung has demonstrated with the Galaxy S8 that you can get 6 or 7 hours of display with 3000 mAh on a screen of 5.8 inches but that is why we have understood that the battery was that, not less.
Samsung has mounted a battery smaller than the Galaxy S8 + in the Galaxy Note 8
The Galaxy Note 8 is no more than a hypervitamined Galaxy S8 but if we make a small comparison, at a glance, we see that the Note 8 battery is 200 mAh smaller than the Galaxy S8 + with a screen of 0.1 inches more.
We have 3300 mAh for a 6.3 inch screen and on the Galaxy S8 + we have about 3500 mAh for a 6.2 inch screen. The hardware is practically identical, but the autonomy with this capacity can not be exceptional. With this data we have between 10 and 15% less battery life and then summarize what the results would be.
The battery complies, but could be much better
Samsung has assembled an Exynos 8895 and a Snapdragon 835 made in 10 nm that perform very well at efficiency level. What’s more, Samsung has seen how the autonomy of the Galaxy S8 broke all standards and exceeded that of the Galaxy S7 despite having the same capacity and 0.6 inches more screen.
The Note 8 wanted to assure with respect to the reliability of the battery but we do not understand how, working in the Galaxy S8+, could not work in Note 8 at least with the same capacity.
Samsung has not said, of course no, Samsung claims that Galaxy Note 8 with its 6.3-inch screen and Infinity Display with QHD + resolution is more than capable to endure a long day with its 3300 mAh battery. This is confirmed by The Investor portal.
Samsung claims that the 10 nm of its processors allow to enjoy an energy efficiency of 30% with respect to the previous generation and in addition they have a software that adapts the use of the battery to each user as well as the security of the same.
The battery of the Galaxy Note 8 will only lose 5% of its capacity in 2 years of use
That’s what Samsung claims, that the Galaxy Note 8 will barely lose battery capacity with use over the years but … is it enough? Let’s go with the actual battery life data. Samsung gives us exact figures and we see that the autonomy of the Galaxy Note 8 is less than the Galaxy S8 +.
With this data, extracted from the website of Samsung, we see that the Galaxy Note 8 will offer a range similar to the Galaxy S8 or even higher, which is what surprises us most.
We can extract from the tests with the mobile that Galaxy Note 8 will be able to offer 5 – 6 hours of screen in the most demanding days and up to 2 days of autonomy with a more moderate use of screen that can go from 2 to 3 hours and a half during both days.
Looking at these official data and believing that yes it will be, with the improvements of Android Oreo is possible that even better, we can start to think that autonomy will not be the strength of Galaxy Note 8 but will not be a problem if given a Normal use to the phone and is not intended to have several days of autonomy.
Conclusion: It’s not milk, but it’s okay
That is the main conclusion we remove from all this. The Galaxy S8 + is able to offer screen days that can reach up to 8 hours without problem and in addition to that offer days of 2 days with up to 4 hours of screen.
The battery life of the Galaxy Note 8 will be a little lower but rather at the level of the screen because this year Samsung has managed to make the AMOLED screen spend very little and the processor also does what has had a very good impact on the autonomy . I have a Galaxy S8, which we have analyzed here, and I must admit that it has been the mobile with better autonomy that has had to date so if the Galaxy Note 8 is similar as says Samsung no one is going to complain about it. Of course, you can use these 10 tricks to save battery.
