Doing bigger things with your Samsung Galaxy Note 8

The Samsung Galaxy Note 8 allows you to experience the next level Note and do bigger things.

With its seamless hardware design and a variety of new service offerings the Note 8 pushes the boundaries of traditional smartphones.

The Galaxy Note 8 brings a new level of functionality and convenience, with the launch of multiple services and apps, as well as a stunning Infinity Display for immersive viewing experiences, opening up a galaxy of possibilities.

Designed for the way consumers lead their lives and lean on technology today, the Galaxy Note 8’s 6.3″ screen is the largest ever screen on a Note device.

Yet, it still fits easily in your hand, it helps you connect and communicate in more personal ways, and it captures stunning photos.

These are some the awesome features we’re talking about.

The S Pen – A whole new way to communicate

Although previous iterations have come with the S Pen, the Galaxy Note 8’s S Pen has new pen features, including translation.

The new S Pen’s highlight feature might be its Live Messages ability, which means you draw your own emojis to show how you feel or write a message on a photo and send it as a handwritten note.

The translation feature, allows you to highlight text with the pen via hovering, which will then provide a block of translated text in your primary language.

This feature goes beyond similar offerings in terms of convenience, and works well for business.

What’s more is that this same tool converts currency, saving up more time in our busy lives.

Better pictures with Galaxy Note8’s best-in-class camera

For most consumers, one of the things they look for when purchasing a new device is the camera.

Samsung set the standard for smartphone cameras, and with the Galaxy Note 8 they’re delivering their most powerful smartphone camera yet.

The Galaxy Note 8 is the first smartphone with two 12MP rear cameras with Optical Image Stabilization (OIS) on both the wide-angle and telephoto lenses, and allows you to capture sharper images.

For more advanced photo-taking, the Galaxy Note 8’s Live Focus feature lets you control the depth of field by allowing you to adjust the bokeh effect in preview mode and after you take the photo.

Bixby voice

Consider Siri, Alexa, Google Assistant, Cortana – every huge brand is diving into the robotic world of digital assistant, and Samsung has been notable in its absence until this year.

Bixby is activated through voice control, responding both to the wake phrase “Hi, Bixby” and when the button dedicated to Bixby is held down.

The AI assistant seems to have grown, and now makes it possible to create custom phrases to instruct Bixby to perform a series of specific actions.
