    While I was using my s-pen I discovered that it makes sound like I'm scribbling on a piece of paper. I thought it was a cool touch. Anyone else find something?

    Probably the worst kept secret but I have a habit of pressing on the phone where the home button is to turn the phone screen on. I discovered there is a haptic button there that will turn the phone screen on when the screen is off. Pretty cool

    the charger plugs in both ways! 🤣 Really is a good thing. And my Note 5 wireless charging pad works on the 8.

    The battery optimizer notification is helpful, and will help extend the battery usage. Also certain apps are working better on this phone than they did on my Note Edge.

    I know...... right?

    Wake up in the morning, my beautiful Black note 8 is out of its Spigen case, and I start admiring the highest ever rated amazingly over the top infinity screen, download different wonderful wallpapers, and basically just gaze in awe of the display

    Loving, loving, loving my Note 8!!!!!!!

    You can't use voice commands with the camera if Bixby voice is enabled.

    As big a hit as the Note 7 was with fans, this one seems an even bigger hit

    Yes, auto rotate is on, but that is not what I'm looking for. You can now tap screen in YouTube, and can view the screen in full from top to bottom.

    That's a bummer. I use voice most of the time while taking photos.

    a lot of the edge features from the S7E and Note7 are not here also. It's mostly software, so I hope this gets some kind ofupdate to restore that soon. after all, it's still an edge device.

    also, I think I'm noticing that the screen is a tad off center. my left edge has more of a black bar than the right side. It's thinner on the right.

    You can just disable Bixby voice.

    Mine does this automatically. May be depending on who you have. Mine is TMobile. If you go into settings and search for full screen apps, you can choose which apps you want to run in full screen mode. Mine is preset for Youtube to run this way and I can not change it, but I am thinking that is a carrier thing.

    It's not really something that was "discovered", but I absolutely love the unobtrusive text message notifications! That small bubble is amazing, especially for such a large screen. Don't know if I'll lose it when I finally switch to another app from the stock one but it's helped keep me on the stock app 😂

    Am really liking Bixby voice and quick commands we can create with it. Looks like it has lot of potential.

    Another missing feature is that now i can't answer a call with voice. When I say"answer" on my note 5, call used to be answered in speaker mode. I miss that feature on note 8.
