The Samsung Galaxy Note8 has finally arrived in Malaysia. It is the best flagship smartphone yet that’s designed to help you do bigger things for both work and play. To find out more, here are 8 cool things you can do on the Galaxy Note8.
1. Take Bokehlicious photos with Live Focus
The best camera is the one you have with you. Samsung is known for its awesome camera with its fast dual-pixel sensor. On the Galaxy Note8, it comes with two 12MP cameras with dual OIS for sharper photos in any situation.
Instead of taking normal shots, you can take stunning photos with bokeh effects using its new Live Focus feature. When enabled, you can adjust your bokeh levels and preview it in real time. You can still adjust the amount of blur for the background even after the picture is taken.
Want to get closer to the action? The Galaxy Note8 comes with 2X Optical zoom so you can zoom in with greater detail. With the camera’s Dual Capture mode, it will save photos from both wide-angle and telephoto lenses at the same time. Whether you’re shooting up close or from afar, you’ll never miss the moment.
To share your moments in real time, U Mobile gives you free unlimited data to access Facebook, Twitter and Instagram with App-Onz™. Available on all Ultimate Device Plans, you can social as much as you want without worry about running out of data.
2. Do more with the new and improved S Pen
The Galaxy Note8’s S Pen can do more than just drawing and taking notes. When traveling, you can use the S Pen to translate words on the go. Can’t read a menu in a foreign language? Just snap a pic and hover your S Pen for instant translation. It not only translates words but also sentences in full.
Need instant access to your notes? You can now pin your important to do list on the Always-on display and make edits instantly with a couple of taps. With 4,096 levels of pressure sensitivity, the S Pen is more responsive to every stroke you make.
3. Express yourself with Live Message
For moments when text and photos are not enough, the Galaxy Note8 lets you express yourself better with Live Message. Using the S Pen, you can bring your messages to life and you can send them to your loved ones via your social chat platforms.
4. Turn your moments into Animated GIFs
Got a funny video of your friends in action? With the Galaxy Note8 and its S Pen, you can easily meme-fy your friend’s funny antics into animated GIFs. Just use the smart selection tool over any video and convert those epics few seconds into a legendary meme.
5. Run two apps at a single tap
The Galaxy Note8‘s taller 18.5:9 Infinity Display makes it better to run two apps side by side. With its new App Pair feature, you can preset two of your favourite apps on a single shortcut. Now you can launch Google Maps and Spotify side by side or watch YouTube videos while chatting away on WhatsApp at the same time.
6. Watch YouTube and Netflix in HDR
The Galaxy Note8’s 6.3” Infinity Display isn’t just gorgeous to look at. It even supports HDR videos from Netflix and YouTube. This gives you better contrast and a wider colour gamut for a more vivid visual experience.
If you love watching videos on the go, Galaxy Note8 users can take advantage of U Mobile’s Video-Onz™. This gives you additional free data to stream videos from popular platforms including from Netflix and YouTube.
7. Immerse yourself in Virtual Reality
Enjoy front row experience like you’re there with the Samsung Gear VR. Whether it is gaming or live concert, the Galaxy Note8 with the Gear VR puts you in the centre of the action. The new Gear VR also comes with a wireless controller for better navigation which you can also use as a game pad.
8. Turn your Galaxy Note8 into a desktop PC
Whether you’re rushing on a last minute presentation or finishing up on an important report, the Galaxy Note8 can transform into desktop PC. Using a Samsung Dex that’s hooked up to a monitor, keyboard and mouse, your Galaxy Note8 can give you a desktop-like experience. You can run MS Word, Excel, Powerpoint or even play Vainglory on a bigger screen.
While doing this, the Galaxy Note8 is still a phone. You can still receive calls and answer instant messages while it’s being docked on the Samsung Dex.
