Today we are going to talk about the Note-series of Samsung, and see if the Samsung Note 8 going to leave a great impact on the customer base, who are quite feared due to what happened with the Note 7.
Samsung is evident when it comes to its flagship line-ups. The Note lineup and the S-series lineup is one of the most trusted list and the oldest lineup from Samsung till now. Other line-ups from Samsung are dead, and now a new sort of J-series, On-series, and such lineups are there in the store from Samsung.
Past of Samsung with the Note series
Samsung launched the first Note in 2011, with a screen size of 5.3″. Isn’t the screen size a bit small? Yes, it is for sure by current standards, but back in 2011 phones had a screen size of around 3.5″ to a maximum of 3.7-inches. This made the Note series an extensive handset phone series. The phone was quite popular among the people who needed a phone with a stylus from a reliable company and wanted to play games and watch media on the phone. Then there came the Evergreen Note 2 which was the most sold Note series phone from Samsung and was very famous.

With the Note 3 and Note 4, Samsung kind of bet the design and performance and ended up having a disaster with those handsets. The devices were high, and were accepted by the public well; still, the sales of those devices were quite small as compared to the Note and the Note 2. The Note 5 changed the game, with a beautiful boxy design and a glass back with a flat screen which everyone was looking for after Samsung played with the Galaxy S-series by edge screen.
Note 7 was a Disaster
Samsung to make the Note series in line with the S-series of devices skipped the number 6. S-series, Apple’s iPhone both were going to have the 7th number this time, so people might think that the Note 6 is an old device and ignore the phone. So Samsung skipped the number, and this became a disaster for them. This was not due to skipping of the number but indeed due to a small flaw in the battery.
The battery of the Note 7 exploded in planes, and this made airline companies to ban the use of Samsung phones in flight. But later the issue was resolved when Samsung recalled all the handsets and had either the money or a replacement phone to the people.
