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.

One of our favorite features on the old Galaxy Note 7 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 with 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.

    Why does iPhone always get mentioned in these reviews when they are always late to the party? Apple is not a pioneer, they are exceptional at making existing tech work in their devices not creating new technology! So please stop it with iPhone mentions!
