We were fighting a crowd to play with the Galaxy Note 8.0 but we were able to quickly shoot a video comparing the size of the two devices. You'll see the Galaxy Note 8.0 is just a hair larger and seems to be a bit thicker, too. Still, the display seems much better than that on the iPad mini. Check out the quick video for a size comparison. We'll be sure to do a much more in-depth look once we have a review unit.
