We all know there’s a lot more to a phone than its specs sheet, but sometimes a specs sheet comes along that looks to be about as perfect as a phone can get. So it is with the Samsung Galaxy Note 8 specs, including an improved S Pen stylus. There is literally nothing missing from our wish list in these specs, barring perhaps the out-of-the-box presence of Android 8.0 Oreo or a monstrously large battery (some things will never be enough).

Without further ado, feast your eyes on all the Galaxy Note 8 specs have to offer, and hit the comments to let us know if you think Samsung dropped the ball on anything here or if this is about as good as it gets.
