Indeed, while it already proved it can do great things when it's hungry by coming up with the great Galaxy S8 and S8+, there's still some weird aura surrounding the Note series, but the brand-new Note 8 is already shaping up like the one that will break the spell.

However, the competition never just stands there and observes, it acts swiftly. The and the iPhone 7 Plus and the LG G6 are among the most popular devices out and about. How does the Note 8 stack up against these? And more importantly, is there any significant difference between it and the Galaxy S8+ except for the S Pen?
