Samsung has recently announced the discontinuation of its long time flagship, the Galaxy Note. With a new and unproven successor in the form of Samsung’s newly released Android ‘flagship,’ this marks an end for one more leading tech company high-end smartphone line.
The “samsung galaxy note 8” is the last phone that Samsung will ever release. This article is a love letter to the device, and its end of life.
When you go into a shop, there are a myriad of cellphones to pick from: not just a restricted selection of brands, but a large galaxy of possibilities (no pun intended). However, some companies have a distinct edge over others, a niche if you will, that distinguishes them from the competition.
As of right now, Sony’s Xperia range is concentrating on becoming a Pro tool (which I will discuss in a separate piece), but Samsung has the Galaxy Note, which is their ace in the hole. However, that day may have passed since the odds of seeing a new Samsung Galaxy Note are little to none. We may even have to say our goodbyes, but I’m not prepared for that.
The Most Effective Tool in Your Pocket

The Samsung Galaxy Note has proven to be a tool that no one saw coming since its release. It was the first glimpse of what a PDA like the Palm of old might have looked like if the smartphone aspect had been included. The next thing you know, it’s the instrument of many users’ dreams. Many people liked it, from artists who want to draw on the go to businesspeople who like to take notes or minutes on their phone. The phone’s one-of-a-kind potential made it the finest phone anybody could ever possess. It was the ideal instrument, and I really want one.
When I was a youngster, owning a Galaxy Note seemed unattainable, so I promised myself that one day I would, and when I did, it was the finest phone I had in my pocket.
The Samsung Galaxy Note8 is my first note.
In many respects, I still have a warm place in my heart for the Samsung Galaxy Note8; in fact, it’s one of the few phones with which I have a particular bond, and I can’t seem to let go. At the time of release, the phone boasted the greatest screen-to-body ratio and no notch, making it one of the most immersive phones available.
One was to eliminate all buttons, but that phone featured a “pressure sensitive” button concealed under the screen to wake the display, which was pure brilliance. In terms of security, the phone had not just a fingerprint sensor but also an Iris Scanner that correctly scans and unlocks the phone. Even in 2022, I don’t think there will be any phones that accomplish things like the Note8 did.
That phone was the start of my S Pen quest. It’s one thing to have to carry a digital stylus, but being able to keep it in the device makes it easier to depend on since it’s always there without taking up too much room. Because the pen can handle up to 2048 pressure points, it behaves differently every time you use it.
A line’s thickness, or what you write, changes. Apart from that, the always-on note-taking function was fantastic since you could pull out your pen and the phone would instantly activate the display, allowing you to write down notes. It may seem that the phone just performed one thing, but it did it well. Samsung applications that took use of the S Pen in Calendar apps and so many more broadened the experience across the UI.
When other students were taking notes on tablets, I wrote down a lot of notes on my phone as a student. And, in packed areas, the phone took up little to no room, making it the ideal tool. I was filling out NDA forms and other applications on my phone at work instead of printing, filling it out, and mailing it back, which saved paper.
It Became Easier for the S Pen
The S Pen only improved with each generation, with the Note20 being the final Note I used before upgrading to the S21 Ultra – the pen’s responsiveness improved, there were some fancy capabilities where the Pen actually became a Magic wand of sorts with the ability to make motions, be a remote, and more. It didn’t just become better; it became even better, to the point where it was the only pen that could perform everything, while the other stylus (Styli? C.Y.) hardly scraped the surface of English.
The S Pen Was the First to Support the S Series
The Samsung Galaxy Note20 Series was the final Note to ever exist, and we didn’t see the Note return until 2021, which was alarming for a variety of reasons.
However, Samsung did something noteworthy that caught our attention: the Samsung Galaxy S21 Ultra, which became the first S Series phone to feature Stylus, which must be purchased separately. I had been using the S21 Ultra for a week when I decided to spend the additional RM 400 on the S Pen with Case because it was more than a tool for me; it was a need. But, believe me when I say this, it was not a memorable event.
The S21 Ultra was unable to take the place of the Note.
The reason for the S21 Ultra’s inclusion of S Pen functionality is simple: it allows S Series consumers to have a taste of what the Note has to offer before deciding whether or not to invest in the device. But not to replace it, since the Note had a significant advantage in managing the S Pen because it was integrated into the phone rather than being a separate component. This also means that the experience was smooth and united rather than disconnected, as with the S21 Ultra. That’s why we said in our assessment that it’s not good enough to replace the Note.
Even the Z Fold 3, which supports the S Pen, falls short of the Note’s promises of a seamless experience.
But, what exactly happened?
The whole tale or rumors surrounding the Note series’ termination is strange, and to put it another way, vague. Last year, Samsung issued an official statement stating that the Note series will not be discontinued, but it was not a simple declaration. Then, somewhere around December 2021, TM Roh makes the formal announcement that it is no longer active.
To be honest, knowing that the only really unique smartphone on the market will no longer exist is depressing. However, there are reports that the “Ultra” model of the new S22 will be a Note in everything but name. I’ll take it, but knowing that the Note20 is the last phone to bear the name makes the phone unique and one worth keeping close to our hearts.

Even if the reported S22 Ultra is just a Note without a name, I’ll miss the anticipation for the next greatest thing in August, which is the newest chapter in the Note tale. My darling, you will be missed; I’m pleased I got to know you while you were still known as the Note. Indeed, I am fortunate to be one of many happy people who have been able to experience the Note, beginning with the Note8, thanks to Samsung Malaysia, which has generously provided us with every version for review since then.
