Here's the Galaxy Note 8.0. It has an 8-inch display. It looks a lot like a blown up version of the Galaxy S III.

There's a front-facing camera for video chats.

Here are the volume and power buttons. There's also an infrared blaster so you can use the tablet as a remote for your TV.

Two stereo speakers at the bottom plus a Micro USB port for charging.

The home button looks just like the one on the Galaxy S III.

Here's the rear camera.

The Galaxy Note 8.0 has a feature called Smart Stay that can detect when you're looking at the device and keep the screen on.

Here's the home screen. Like all Android devices, it's fully customisable.

There's a control panel in the drop-down notifications menu that lets you control basic functions.

It's also where you can turn on the multi window feature that lets you run two apps at once.
