Netflix offers HDR streaming for the Samsung Galaxy Note 8
Netflix is adding high dynamic range video streaming for the Samsung Galaxy Note 8. The feature will allow Galaxy Note 8 users to see video streamed by Netflix in richer color and with higher contrast. According to the video streamer's support page, other handsets receiving HDR streaming of movies and television shows on Netflix include the LG V30, Sony Xperia XZ Premium and the Sony Xperia XZ1. These devices must be running the latest firmware available for HDR playback to work correctly.

The Netflix support page also notes that the LG G6 is the lone Android model that runs Netflix in Dolby vision. That is another high dynamic range technology that Netflix supports. And while the Samsung Galaxy S8, Samsung Galaxy S8+, Samsung Galaxy Note 7 and the Samsung Galaxy Tab S3 all carry displays that will run HDR streaming content, it is Netflix that doesn't support the HDR streams for those phones at this time.
 
The Galaxy Note 8 supports HDR10, and it can reach a peak brightness of 1,200 nits. That compares to 570 nits on the Galaxy S8 and 632 nits on the Apple iPhone 7.

"The Galaxy Note 8 supports HDR10, and it can reach a peak brightness of 1,200 nits."

Still haven't seen an article reporting on the news of the Note8 having the best display, as per Displaymate... Or did I miss it?

You know this is bull right here display mate states S8 has a peak brightness of over 1000 nits highest they have tested. This article states 500 plus both have the same screen same hdr tech . Its like everyone is trying to get people to buy the note 8 over the IMO better S8 plus.

The only thing better about the S8+ is the bigger battery but every battery test I have seen shows the note 8 last longer. The Note 8 is a better phone all the way around. More ram, better camera, s-pen, less curved screen etc.

Because the iPhone 7 has one the brightest displays on the market and they are describing how much brighter the Note 8's display is.

In real life tests people will see the note 8 is not as good as the s8 plus. Ive seen battery vids now showing custome s8 plus with a gazillion apps runing customs a launcher against a new out of box note 8 and the difference is like a plus 10 mins to the note 8. S8 plus does have batter battery life and people will in real life tests not get anywere near the battery life they expect but hey pay the reviewers to sell your phones.

Samsung will send a software update that increases the battery drain in s8 plus and make it worser than note 8... have you ever wondered how a feature packed Note8 with lesser battery capacity, with slightly larger screen than s8plus could out perform s8 plus? thru a software update bro!! :D

Yeah i think your right tbh since these reviews on battery performance have started ive been baffled. Same chipset same screen tech bigger display, smaller same tech battery better battery life :I
I like samsung products thats why i have a s8 plus but people are blind to the point they refuse logic

Looks like Samsung forgets their phones after a single release of a new phone lol.

Galaxy S8 also supports HDR10, yet still no support over 4 months down the road.
