10 Things the Galaxy Note 8 Can Do

The Samsung Galaxy Note 8 is a big and powerful smartphone with a lot of neat new features. While most love the large Infinity display or dual cameras, that isn’t all this phone has to offer. Below we’ll share 10 neat things the Galaxy Note 8 can do in an effort to help owners enjoy their phone to the fullest.

At first glance, you might just think Samsung’s new phone is a bigger Galaxy S8. Considering the Galaxy Note 8 shares the same design and has a slightly bigger 6.3-inch Quad-HD display. That said, Samsung’s managed to pack some noteworthy improvements into its latest phablet.

Now that the Galaxy Note 8 is readily available you’ll want to take advantage of every new feature. Some are easy to find and well-known to Samsung users. At the same time, there is a slew of new ones you probably don’t know about.

Recently, Samsung shared a few videos and explained some key upgrades to the Note. Including the powerful dual cameras on the back, Bixby virtual assistant, and the easier to use S-Pen. They shared a few up on stage during the announcement too, but those are just a few of many you’ll want to try.

Everyone already knows about some of the headline new options on the Galaxy Note 8. The fingerprint scanner is on the back, the secondary rear camera can zoom in closer on subjects, and it has a built-in stylus. Those are all great, but here we’re focusing on those hidden features that make it exciting.

Live Messages (Animated)

Live Messages (Animated)

One of our favorite features on the Galaxy Note 7 last year was the ability to turn any video into a GIF with the S-Pen. Simply play a video, pull out the stylus and do some cropping and you're done. 

And while that's still an option, Samsung built on that idea this year and created a new feature called Live Messages for the Galaxy Note 8. 

When you use the S-Pen to write on the screen anything you write is available to send as a Live Message. There's even a dedicated option in the S-Pen menu for Live Messages. As you write the letters sparkle and glisten on the screen. Then, you can send that message as an animated GIF that essentially plays the message on the other end for whoever receives it. It's hard to explain in words, but you'll find it once you open your Note 8. Try it today.
