Install for Lift to Wake
This might just be our favorite Android Pie feature.
The iPhone's had it for years, but Samsung's finally brought a raise to wake feature to Galaxy devices in this upgrade.
Android Pie features a useful "Lift to wake" feature that allows you to check your lock screen for notifications simply by raising the phone to your face.
With Lift to Wake toggled on, your Note 8 will start scanning your eyes or face when you lift the device up.
If you use iris scanning to unlock your device, you'll love this change because you don't have to press the power button to turn the screen on.
Once you get the Pie update on board you'll find it in the Advanced features > Motions and gestures menu in the Settings app.
