The Galaxy Note 8.0 comes with the S Pen and plenty to like in it, but it just seems way too pricey at $399 for the base model. The iPad mini with a similarly large 8-inch screen costs $329 in comparison.
The Samsung Galaxy Note 8.0 however has a couple of arguments for that price. First, is the sharper 1280 x 800 pixel display, but also the better, quad-core chip inside it and the S Pen support of course.
