Screen Off Note Taking on the Samsung Galaxy Note 8

Monday, October 23rd, 2017

One of the biggest selling points of the Galaxy Note 8 is the S Pen and the ability to take Notes, annotate documents and draw directly onto your device.

Too often in life we have information thrown at us that we need to jot down quickly, before we miss our chance.

Being able to take notes is one of the biggest benefits of the Galaxy Note 8 and its S Pen stylus, but we often find ourselves noting down things in a hurry without much time to unlock our phone and boot up a specific note-taking app.

Luckily Samsung has prepared for this problem with the Galaxy Note 8, as the phone supports screen off note-taking, allowing you to scribble down on your display without turning it on properly.

It’s smart and works well, so you can just pop out your S Pen while the screen is off and start scribbling without having to search through your apps.

We are just hours away from the Galaxy Note 8 announcements

Wednesday, August 23rd, 2017

We have lived through months of speculation, rumours and leaked renders of the Samsung Galaxy Note 8, but the wait for this anticipated release is nearly over.

A lot is riding on the Galaxy Note 8 to make up for its explosive predecessor, and the mobile world is expecting the device to offer plenty of new technology that is not present on the Galaxy S8. Rumours are that the Note 8 will be 0.1 of an inch larger than the Samsung Galaxy S8+, making it the largest handset Samsung has ever built.

We can expect Qualcomm’s latest Snapdragon 835 processor, 6GB of RAM and a 3,300 mAh battery cell.  Speculation also suggests that the next-generation S Pen will be included with the device, and the accessory will have a built-in motor that help you locate it via the ‘Find my Mobile App’ should you misplace it.

It appears that we’re not alone in having high hopes for the Note 8; “According to experts,” notes experts at Android Police, “sales will be very strong, as this is virtually the first new Galaxy Note in two years.”
