Samsung Galaxy Note 8 – The Best Just Got Better
Even prior to its release, the Galaxy Note 8 garnered a lot of attention and anticipation from smartphone experts, aficionados, and netizens. The main question in everyone’s mind was whether the South Korean firm was able to regain its reputation after the Note 7 tragedy. Now that the phone has been officially released, it seems that Samsung is on track to regain the consumer’s trust with the Note 8, proving once again why they are the leaders of the smartphone industry. Below are some of the key features offered by the Galaxy Note 8:
Huge Display Screen with Minimal Bezels
The Galaxy Note 8 sports the edge-to-edge, bezel-free “Infinity Display” screen on its front, similar to the ones first unveiled on the S8 and S8+. The screen is the biggest version of the screen to date, measuring 6.3 inches, with a 2960x1440 QHD+ display that delivers sublime graphics. With specifications such as these, it goes without saying that legibility under bright sunlight as well as viewing angles are far superior to what its predecessors can offer.
Double Your Photography Prowess Dual Rear Cameras
One of the biggest upgrades seen on the Galaxy Note 8 is the rear cameras. Featuring dual 12MP primary cameras – both equipped with optical image stabilization, the smartphone is a phoneographer’s best companion for taking photos on the go. With one sensor on the rear taking wide-angle, f/1.7 images and the other taking zoomed f/2.4, users should be able to experience a commendable low-light performance from the Note 8, as well as being able to take a wide range of photo styles. A new feature called “Live Focus” has also been introduced, which allows users to take pictures with a “bokeh” effect.
Maximising the S Pen Stylus
The S Pen is – along with the raw power inside – the thing that differentiates the Note series from other devices in the market. The new and improved version of the stylus is better than ever, with 4,000 levels of pressure sensitivity, a more flexible tip, and a nice weight that makes it a pleasure to use. Some of the functions offered by the S Pen stylus include enabling users to write memos and reminders on the phone’s lock screen, create an animated GIF from your doodles, and translating more words in a single swipe.
Say Hi to Bixby
The Galaxy Note 8 also comes with Bixby, Samsung’s very own virtual assistant, with the full suites of features enabled right out of the box. Besides Bixby Home Screen and Bixby Vision, Bixby Voice is also added into the mix, offering more ways for users to interact with the phone.
