Samsung Galaxy Note 8 vs Galaxy S8+

Introduction
In a parallel universe where all our comparisons fit in a tweet, this one would probably say “Just get the Galaxy Note 8”, followed by a bunch of hashtags and emoji. But in the current, we take a much more in-depth approach to our 1v1 articles, even when one of the phones is clearly superior to the other, as is the case here.

Both the Samsung Galaxy Note 8 and the Galaxy S8+ are big and powerful, attractive in appearance, and loaded with more software goodies than you’ll ever have the need for. But only the Note 8 has a dual camera — one enabling bokeh effects …


Samsung Galaxy Tab Active 2 gets certified, expect it to launch very soon


We reported a few months ago that the sequel to the entry-level rugged tablet by Samsung, the Galaxy Tab Active is in the works and that it might be coming soon. Well, it looks like the slate is now one more step closer to release, although we doubt Samsung will hold a launch event just for the Galaxy Tab Active 2.

The US regulatory commission (FCC) has just certified Samsung’s Galaxy Tab Active 2, which goes by model numbers SM-T390 (LTE) and SM-T395 (Wi-Fi only). For the time being, it’s the Wi-Fi only version that got approved by the Federal Communications Commission, but we’re confident …

What the Galaxy Note 8 "Video enhancer" does, and how to use it

One of the main points of interest with the new Samsung Galaxy Note 8, as it was with the Galaxy S8, is the gorgeous Infinity Display adorning its facade. With an unusual aspect ratio of 18.5:9, Samsung’s new AMOLED panel isleaves very little in the way of bezels on the top and bottom of its latest flagships. Note 8’s display has a native resolution of 1440 x 2960 (WQHD+) and is capable of delivering an exceptional pixel density that makes images appear ultra crisp. But the Note 8 is also HDR-certified, meaning it can reproduce a wider color gamut of when displaying …

Xiaomi Mi Mix 2 vs Samsung Galaxy Note 8, S8 vs LG V30 vs Essential Phone: "bezel-less" size comparison

Xiaomi, a company that is big in China, but has no official presence in the United States (and very little in Europe), has launched its best phone yet: the bezel-less Xiaomi Mi Mix 2.
The Mi Mix 2 is the successor of what’s arguably the first bezel-less phone: last year’s gigantic, 6.44-inch Mi Mix.
The original Mi Mix was deemed a “concept phone” and sold in limited quantities, and it never really proved all that practical, not least because of its huge size. The new Mi Mix 2, however, has taken some valuable lessons …

Xiaomi Mi Mix 2 specs comparison versus the Galaxy Note 8 and LG V30

Xiaomi just unveiled another bezel-less monster to succeed its last-year Mi MIX, which was one of the first phones to kick-start the design trend. Although that one was mostly a proof of concept, the second-gen Mi Mix appears to be much-more fleshed out consumer product. Retaining the same old bezel-busting aesthetics and doubling down with some serious hardware under the hood, the Mi MIX 2 would likely give any other phone out there a serious run for the money.

Yet, there’s always the availability issue with Xiaomi’s phones, which are still a fata morgana …

How to turn the Galaxy Note 8 into a graphics tablet for your PC

Arguably the biggest stand-out feature of Samsung’s Galaxy Note series is the S-Pen that comes with each device. Over the years, Samsung has greatly expanded the functionality of the S-Pen and the software powering the Note line, turning them from a simple pen and notebook substitute for the digital age, into a killer feature for the brand.

The brand new Galaxy Note 8 does its part in expanding the said functionality further, adding up to a 100 pages worth of hand-written notes on the always-on display and a number of other S-Pen-related bells and whistles, …

How to customize the Galaxy Note 8 navbar: change color, rearrange buttons, make it disappear!

Starting with the Galaxy S8 and S8+, Samsung ditched physical buttons in favor of on-screen navigation, as there was simply no room for them on the phones’ almost non-existent bottom bezel, and the brand new Galaxy Note 8 continues this trend.

Thankfully, Samsung has added a healthy dose of navbar customization options in the latest iteration of its proprietary Android skin, which grants users the ability to rearrange the on-screen buttons’ order, to change the navigation bar’s color, and even make it disappear! Previously something reserved …
