Samsung’s Note8 should be your best phone. It’s available across all major phone dealers in Nigeria. It has the best display on any smartphone right now, a head-turning, premium design, top-of-the-line dual camera, reliable battery life, and fast performance.

The mostly glass design of the Note8 might concern you about durability, according to latest reviews, this hasn’t been much of an issue. The Note8 also has IP68 water resistance, so you don’t need to worry about dropping it in a puddle or getting it wet at the beach.

The Note8’s 6.3″ screen and 18.5:9 aspect ratio makes it the largest screen on any note device till date. Just like last years Note 7 and this years S8 and S8 Plus the Note 8 features a body design that has perfect symmetry. This simply means that the phone curves forward and backwards in such a seem-less fashion that it just feels right in your hands

The S Pen is also water proof or dust proof this year so no worries in getting it accidentally wet or cleaning it with a wet cloth on occasion. They’ve also included animated GIF functionality with the S Pen suite. Here, you can use the S Pen to write a message, draw a little doodle on an image or white canvas and send it to your friends via messaging apps to any phone around the world.

The Note 8 is the first Galaxy phone to come with a dual camera but what differentiates Samsung from other companies is the fact that each sensor contains OIS (optical image stabilization) while other manufacturers could add OIS only to the wide angle lens. This translates to smoother, more stabilized video footage and sharper photos even when using that telephoto optical zoom.

Samsung also created a new function called “Dual Capture” which enables users to take one photo which saves as two different photos: one telephoto and one wide angle. This opens up some pretty cool options such as saving both or if you change your mind and what more of the story in your photos you have this option.

Better Selfies. This is a 8MP f/1.7 bright selfie lens with the new smart auto focus function included. This is one advanced selfie camera. The selfie camera should serve you well even in low lighting and give you that crisp selfies you need.

All of Samsung’s security measures operate within the secure containers of Samsung Knox which is a military grade security system that is nearly fool proof. Consider your data kept safe.
