Samsung Galaxy Note8: the wait is over

The fact that Samsung has emerged as a market leader in the world of smart phones is hardly in doubt any more and nothing butresses this point more than its signature Galaxy series.

They have continued to raise the bar with each version that emerges while at the same time keeping competitors on their toes as they battle to keep pace with them. Now, with their promised release of the Samsung Galaxy Note8 by September, 2017, the world has been on a count down to the D-day waiting to see what they have got to offer this time around. However, if their track record is anything to rely on, then the wait is most likely going to be worth it.

The Smartphone everyone has been waiting for has finally arrived

The Samsung Galaxy Note8 has a large screen measuring 6.3 inches in size, which makes it the largest ever screen so far on a note device, regardless of this large screen area, the phone is also streamlined in way that makes it possible to fit into your hand conviniently.

Now, this is where it gets more interesting; a lot of people have always been annoyed because they are always forced to use phone generic buttons in typing without the ability to type in their own hand written form when composing a message, but do you know that such limitation has now been overcome with the Samsung Galaxy Note8? Yes, you heard right! This futuristic phone makes it possible through its live message for you to flaunt that beautiful hand writing style of yours or even put your creativity to effective use by drawing your own emoji or even animated GIF while using the S Pen’s smart select feature. This is certainly a game changer that will appeal to a lot of people.

The benefit of the S Pen does not end with GIF or emoji drawing, it also comes very handy when you want to write down some information on the memo, again that’s not where the amazing features of the phone ends, with the Samsung Galaxy Note8, you can simply and smartly put down ideas on the go without having to rouse your phone from sleep to unlock it. All you need is to just flip out the S Pen and jot down the information on the screen.
Ouch, you just made an error in what you were jotting down but don’t have to beat yourself too much, making mistakes is a universal problem and whats more, the producers knew that this is bound to happen every now and then, so they built in a button at the center of the pen and when you press it, the tip automatically becomes an eraser for you to rub off the mistake and pen down the correct one.


What is the essence of a smartphone if it can’t give you exceptional quality pictures? Here is another vital area the producers of Samsung Galaxy Note8 went the extra mile to ensure that competitors are left in the dust. This smartphone actually has two times optical zoom feature and OIS (optical image stabilization) that makes it possible for you to zoom and yet still get crisp and perfect pictures regardless of how far away the object is.
Also, with the dual capture feature, you can now snap areas that are beyond the frame thus making your reach unlimited and if it happens to be at night, the Dual Pixel Sensor ensures that your pictures remains as bright as ever. The Camera also features like the Food mode, Pro mode, Panorama and Slow motion, and each of them has distinct funtcions put in place to ensure that your pictures appear larger than life itself.

Samsung Galaxy Note8 and the DeX Station

There is no doubt that phones are less efficient in comparison to computers when it comes to typing large documents, again, Samsung Galaxy Note8 has taking care of this handicap by making the DeX Station. All you need to do is just connect your HDMI cable, portable keyboard and mouse to a monitor and automatically you are good to go with your thesis or any large document that needs to be typed.

Video Display

Now, if you’re the type that can’t do without streaming videos of playing games, then you will find Samsung Galaxy Note8 awesome. It’s infinity display’s 18.5:9 aspect ratio. Aside its massive 6.3 inches screen, when you adjust the phone to landscape mode, you will have an expansive area that can satisfy you the way a television would.
