Samsung Galaxy Note 8: here is what's in the box

The Samsung Galaxy Note 8 is here and you can pre-order yours tomorrow, on August 24th, but what will you get in the box?

Samsung helps us answer that question with an official unboxing, well at least on picture that is.

The image above shows customers what they get inside the box once they receive their brand new Note 8. Here is what you can find in the box:

1. Device with S Pen
2. Tweezer and Pen nibs
3. USB power adaptor
4. Micro USB connector
5. USB connector (USB Type-C)
6. USB cable
7. Ejection pin
8. Earphones

You can notice a few weird things (for those who have not owned a Note before): why do you need tweezers, for instance?! The answer to that question is simple - you can replace the tips on your S Pen, and in order to pull the existing tips before replacing it with a new one, you can use the conveniently provided tweezer.

Another neat bonus that you get with the Note 8 are a pair of black AKG earbuds, with audio output fine-tuned by the engineers at AKG. The earbuds come with a mid-sized rubber tip installed, but you also get a large and small-sized rubber tip that you can use if that better fits your ears.

You also get two neat adaptors. One is a microUSB to USB-C adaptor and the other one - a standard USB-A to USB-C, which allows you to hook up a flash drive to your Note 8.

Last, but not least, Samsung includes an Adaptive Fast Charge wall brick for charging your device. And that's it!

I'm all in with this beautiful beast. Samsung came back strong with the Note 8, and had the COURAGE to keep the headphone jack. I can still cruise my Vette, while playing and plugged in. 9-15-17 cometh. #S-Penheaven #mybodyisready

It's OK mate. If you just wanted to tell everyone that you own a Corvette you could have just said so.

It's no biggie, it's not like it cost a million dollars.

Be nice of the Note 8 for this cost, came with headphones that are both wired and wireless and of the same or better quality. I have yet to use my S8+ headphones. I rarely ever use inbox headphones, but I gave a listen and they sound pretty darn good.

What are the tweezer and pen nibs for?

The S Pen, like any stylus if you use it often enough it wears the tip down. The tweezers are there to easily remove the old one and put a new one in. Also since the Note 3 or 4, they've had 2 different tips. One is softer, one is harder, it effects how easily the pen glides across the screen for user preference. Their tablets with S Pen include these as well.

Not unless they figure out how to match it in the Exynos processors. More likely they'll match their FA to QC3 and come up to that.

So far. Still have yet to see what the V30 and Pixel XL 2 brings. All I know is I'm done with Samsung for awhile until they can fix their software issues.

well we already know the pixel brings massive bezels & a less than 70% screen to body ratio so there's that.

Yeah... i'm getting a little tired of my samsung getting those random jitters come near another samsung phone release... i use to root samsungs and take touchwiz off, but stopped with the s7... these things are just software heavy

Wonder what software heavy thing you talking about, TBH.

Frame drops and lots of hiccups. Honestly my Note 5 was the only Samsung phone I've never experienced poor software performance.

It is the skin known as Touchwiz. It's what Samsung places over the top of Stock Android to make it their own. Touchwiz has lots of features, but sacrifices overall performance.

I'm talking about the oculus, edge, knox, samsung pay, these things are tightly knitted into their software. And the biggest is the launcher, still crap... I love all the hardware they put in the phone... wish they made google play editions again
