This slide presentation share review of the new Samsung Galaxy Note 8 — which is one of most advanced mobile phones at this point.  Six major advantages are noted, along with a few concerns such as price & battery size

The Galaxy Note 8 is more than just a do-over for the recalled Note 7. It’s a leap forward for big-screen phones, offering a number of firsts for Samsung and a world’s first for any camera phone. Add in a number of S Pen improvements and other enhancements and you have what could be the ultimate phablet for power users. But there are a couple of reasons to think twice, too.

The Galaxy Note 8 packs two rear 12-megapixel cameras, giving you a true 2x optical zoom, just like the iPhone 7 Plus. But unlike the current iPhone, both lenses on the Note 8 offer optical- image stabilization, which means you should see steadier-looking images and video. This is a first for any smartphone.

Samsung made the gorgeous Infinity Display on the Galaxy S8 even bigger, stretching it to 6.3 inches on the Note 8. You still get quad-HD resolution and Super AMOLED for eye-popping colors and perfect blacks, but Samsung made the curve on the edge-to-edge screen less severe, which makes for a more natural writing experience with the S Pen

Although the Galaxy Note 8 has the same Snapdragon 835 chip as the Galaxy S8, Samsung added 2GB more of RAM to bring its total to 6GB.

With the optional DeX Station, you can transform the Galaxy Note 8 into a mini PC and run multiple apps at once with a much bigger view on a HD monitor. The DeX supports a keyboard and mouse, too. There are several apps optimized for this dock, including Zoom. You can start a video call on the Note 8, plug it in, and keep chatting away. You can even do screen sharing.
