Impressions
Samsung Galaxy Note 8 smartphone is the latest release and invention by Samsung. The phone comes with a 6.30-inch touchscreen display with an ultra high definition resolution.

As far as the cameras are concerned, the Samsung Galaxy Note 8 packs a 12-megapixel primary camera on the rear and a 8-megapixel front shooter for selfies.

Dual Cameras, Dual Productivity
Samsung has equipped the Note 8 with two 12-megapixel cameras. The regular/wide-angle lens has an aperture of f/1.7, and the telephoto lens is f/2.4. Samsung offers an industry first feature that both sensors offer optical image stabilization. With a dual camera comes the plethora of new software modes users would normally expect. Samsung has its own take on the portrait mode, which blurs the background behind the subject to mimic bokeh. Users are able to dial the effect up or down to the liking instead of being stuck with just on/off modes, which is nice. The device also have the option of adding (or removing) features after a shot has already been taken and a “Dual Capture” mode stitches together photos from both cameras and saves them individually, too.

Latest Operating System, Updated Features
The Samsung Galaxy Note 8 is pre-loaded with Android 7.1.1, and the overall software experience is basically identical to what’s on the Galaxy S8. Bixby has a big presence, and here is still a dedicated physical button for Samsung’s digital assistant. Samsung is also bringing DeX to the Note, so if you buy the required dock, you can plug it into a monitor for a desktop-like experience with a mouse and keyboard. An innovation within the Samsung Galaxy Note 8 is that users can pair two apps in Apps Edge so that they shall always launch together in split-screen mode. Other useful, small software features, like the ability to easily create GIFs from videos, are also here.

Diversity Within S-Pen Productivity
Samsung Galaxy Note 8 offers few fresh S Pen tricks. With Samsung Galaxy Note 8 users can now take up to 100 pages of notes in the Screen Off Memo mode, which activates when they pull out the S Pen with the display turned off. A new Live Messages feature is more or less a ripoff of Digital Touch in iMessage. Avid S-Pen users can handwrite a message or picture with the S Pen, send it to someone in a message, and it’ll play back animated just as you drew it. Live Messages are saved as GIFs, so they are a bit easier to share across different apps and social media than Apple’s approach. Lastly, the Translate feature that was introduced on the Note 7 now lets you highlight entire sentences with the S Pen to instantly translate into 71 languages.
