5 Best Tips And Tricks For Samsung Galaxy Note 8 Owner Should Know

5 Best Tips And Tricks For Samsung Galaxy Note 8 Owner Should Know
You've got home, unboxed and then set up your Samsung Galaxy Note 8 and now you're trying to play around with every new feature as quickly as possible. You may not know every shortcut and trick out there for the new phone though.

With the S Pen stylus and some of the most up to date software on the planet, the Galaxy Note 8 is a feature-packed phone, but some of the highlights can be hidden under the surface.Here we’re going to talk you through some of the key tips and tricks you need to learn to make the most of your new Samsung phablet.

1. Screen off note-taking

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.

2.  The screen is limited to Full HD by default
Want to make the most of your screen on the Galaxy Note 8? You may not know, but Samsung has limited it to Full HD resolution by default despite it packing a QHD+ panel.

If you want to use your display at full power, you can head into the settings, press display and you can change it to QHD under screen resolution. That’s a smart decision if you’re going to be using this a lot for virtual reality.

Be warned this will likely push your battery a little bit harder, so you’ll find it dies off a little earlier in the day than if you left it on Full HD.

3.Waterproof S Pen can write when wet

You likely know the Galaxy Note 8 is a waterproof phone, but did you know you can still use the S Pen stylus when it’s covered in water? That means you can take notes and scroll around the phone even when it’s dripping wet.

We don’t normally find much use for this, but it does mean you can still use the S Pen when it’s raining and you won’t have to worry about getting your stylus a little soggy.

4.Greater translation tools 
If you spot text in a foreign language, you can use the S Pen to highlight it and your phone will then display its best translation in your chosen language. It's a smart feature, but as with any translating tech it can sometimes misread some of the sentences.

5.Use two apps at once

The Note 8's 6.3-inch screen makes it one of the best phones for multi-tasking, especially as you can use Android's split screen view here.

It's a simple process too. You'll need to hit the 'Recents' button on the soft keys at the bottom of the screen, which you may know as the currently running app menu.Now you can tap the multitasking tab on your already open apps (it’s the one that looks like two rectangles atop each other) and it will open them in a compressed half screen view. Then you can drag the line between them to resize the apps.
