This is probably why the Note8 has a smaller battery than the Galaxy S8+

This is probably why the Note8 has a smaller battery than the Galaxy S8+

As the most expensive phone ever introduced by Samsung, consumers expected the best features to be packed in the Galaxy Note8. However, the Galaxy Note8 is being slammed by many consumers for having a smaller capacity than the Galaxy S8+ despite having a bigger display and costing much more. Samsung appears to have its reasons for doing so.

According to The Investor, Samsung’s mobile chief DJ Koh reportedly said that the use of a 10nm processor will improve the Note's power efficiency by 30%. In addition, Note8 users can adjust their battery use based on their usage patterns which will boost the overall battery efficiency. He also added that the Note8 can retain more than 95% battery capacity after two years of usage. 

Putting aside the company's official stance, a more plausible reason for the smaller battery capacity could be the limited space. Samsung had to fit a dual-camera module and the S Pen into the chassis of the Galaxy Note8. Between choosing to sacrifice on the battery capacity and designing a thicker chassis, we believe Samsung opted for the former to keep the form factor more ergonomic.
