Today, Samsung announced its best mega smartphone Galaxy Note 8. It is full of features which you may not find in many top brands of they day. Samsung has tried its best to pack whatever a smartphone can do at max. I do not write much about smartphones because there are so many number is models look like earthworms after rain. But, I have always tried to write about Samsung Galaxy Note Series. Because, it is the only phone a professional will ever need. All other phones are for kids.

Some of you might be thinking that Samsung Galaxy Note 8 is just like other smartphones. For some limits, you are right. But, there is a huge difference when it comes to the use of Styles or S Pen. If you have never used Galaxy Note series, you can never know what type of monster it is. Simply, Samsung Galaxy Note series is the best a smartphone can ever deliver to you. I am still using my old and gold Samsung Galaxy Note 2, and even after 5 years it works like a champ. There are a couple of so called tech blogs, which are dirty blot on tech-journalism, are gonna downplay Samsung galaxy Note 8. You are warned. Use your own brain.

Samsung Galaxy Note 8 will start dispatching during mid September. May be a few lucky ones will get it before that time. I am als planning to order it for my use. BTW, you may wonder, if I get it, it will be my second Note phone. The first one is Note 2. My favorite color will be Deepsea Blue for it.


The Galaxy Note 8 has a 6.3 inch infinity display. Thin frames and edges are moderate. This creates an almost unlimited impression. The big screen is suitable for gaming, watching movies and working efficiently. Hold more windows simultaneously open and quickly switch between applications. The buttons on the phone are part of the screen and adapt to the current display mode. The physical home button is left in the form of a pressure sensor.

The Galaxy Note 8 has a 12 MP dual camera with dual imaging. It not only just take bright photos in low light, but also when zooming in distant subjects, the images remain clear. Dual Image Stabilizer ensures sharp images in fast shooting situations. With Live Focus, you measure depth of field and take great portraits.

Samsung Galaxy Note 8 protects your digital life with Samsung Knox security, IR and fingerprint authentication. Open your phone safely and smoothly with your eye or finger. In your opinion, choose the nicest option. IR detection is up to 200 times more secure than fingerprint authentication.

Note 8 is perfect for most common weather. Galaxy Note 8 is dust and water resistant in accordance with the IP68 classification. You can take the phone up to 1.5 meters in depth for 30 minutes. Take the phone to the beach, in the rain or follow the cocktail program in the kitchen.

My words are not enough to explain the productivity of S Pen. With a versatile S Pen, you can make quick notes without opening the Galaxy Note 8, underlining your text, creating your own notes and GIF animation. S Pen’s pressure-sensitive and versatile functions increase your creativity to a new level. S Pen is everything what make Galaxy Note 8 different from other phones.


Remember, if there is more than one option in any category, it may you will only find one option available in your country or the carrier you wanna use.
