After last year’s Note 7 travesty, the world has their eye on Samsung with their latest release of the Galaxy Note 8. Well, according to cnet, “redemption is here” for Samsung with the newest, cutting edge smart phone release. If you previously owned a Note 7, Samsung wants to make it up to you by offering you a hefty discount on the newest Note device. While there are many exciting features of the newest Galaxy Note 8, we have picked out the five best features to share with you!
- 1.6GB of Ram
The Galaxy Note 8 features 6GB of Ram and the latest Snapdragon 835 chipset from Qualcomm, which officially makes it the fastest Samsung phone available. If you are tired of slow phones struggling to run multiple apps, then this device will thrill you. Similarly, the Note 8 features 64GB of storage, while also containing a microSD slot, so you can add on extra storage, as needed. This is big selling point since many phones, including iPhones, limit your storage based on the device and price point of your choosing. Nothing can slow the Note 8 down!
- 2.Infinity Display
With a 6.3-inch AMOLED screen and dual curved edges, this “Infinity Display” brings an entirely new look to the Note 8. This device has essentially no bezels on the display and features an 83% screen-body-ratio. The Note 8 is all screen, with the device itself measuring 9mm taller than previous Notes. Still, this sleek display does not sacrifice durability since Samsung claims that the Note 8 is water resistant up to 5 feet for 30 minutes.
- 3.Dual Camera
As the first ever phone with dual cameras produced by Samsung, the Note 8 features two 12-megapixel cameras on the back of the device. The cameras, which feature different focal lenses, allow you to take photos with blurred backgrounds, similar to that of DSLR cameras. Other features include Live Focus, 2x Optical Zoom, and 10X Digital Zoom. Both cameras utilize optical image stabilization to keep your images smooth and to avoid unintended blur.
- 4.Split Screen Multitasking
If you are a classic mutlitasker, then you are going to love the Note 8. A new feature called App Pair, allows you to pair two apps that you want to use together in split screen. For example, if you find yourself wanting to watch YouTube videos while surfing the web on your internet browser, this new feature will allow you to do just that. Essentially you create a new “paired” app, so you can either click on your web browser and use it alone, or click on the App Pair icon when you want to use your paired app in split screen mode. It’s an easy, innovative way to get the most out of your Note 8.
- 5.Live Messaging
A potentially pointless, but fun addition to the Note 8 is the Live Message function. From the Air Command navigation wheel or from the Custom Key on the keyboard, you can open Live Message, which allows you to create your own animated GIF of a handwritten note using your S Pen. What is particularly entertaining about the Live Message is that you can share your custom created GIFs in any app that supports GIFS regularly, such as Facebook Messenger.
You’re interested in these new features, but you might be thinking, is it safe for me to own a Note 8? While many people are questioning the safety of the battery inside the latest Galaxy Note, Samsung wants you to know that they have taken distinct safety precautions in order to prevent another recall catastrophe. An 8-point battery safety check, reduced battery size, and safety certifications are just some of the steps that Samsung has taken to ensure the safety of the Note 8’s battery.
