    What's something fun you enjoy doing on your Note 8 that you would recommend to others ?

    I'm sure a lot of us are looking for cool new things to try and do on our Note 8s, thought why net get a thread going with some random suggestions. Might be some fun ideas a lot of us have never thought about or delved into.

    My suggestion isn't anything groundbreaking, but I love collecting wallpapers for my phone. So many beautiful ones out there, many free and those that aren't they certainly don't cost much at all. I like to change my wallpapers often depending on my moods or season, also like having different ones for my lock and home screens.

    I've also thought about doing some digital scrap booking. I have a lot of family photos from over the generations, and a lot of memory on my 264GB memory card, thought it would be nice to scrapbook all the photos and be able to send it around to family.

    my ultimate favorite thing to do on my Note 8 is to use the picture in picture feature to watch my favorite movies on my sd card while reading things such as android central forums!! had to download the Samsung video library app from the play store when before it used to come pre installed but that's ok!!

    I saved a few Ultra HD videos on YouTube to my favorites. I like turning on high performance mode, bumping up the brightness, and playing a video for people to blow their minds.

    Try MediBang Paint as well. Works great with the S Pen and the app is free. Enjoy!

    You know I'm going to force myself to try. Anything I draw though looks like a 5 year old did it holding the crayon with their foot hehe.

    I jacked up the settings and checked a few out, was impressive. Found some other cool videos too while looking, including one showing how to rearrange your back and recent apps button, now the back button is where it belongs again heh.

    Use the secondary camera in daylight to take extreme macro shots.

    The minimum focusing distance should be roughly similar to the main camera, so you should be able to get those tasty macros.

    Here's one, although the EXIF shows that this is actually a crop from the main camera, though the secondary camera could have played a role.

    So put the camera into live focus?

    This is not using Live Focus.

    That's the natural bokeh.

    Thats why I think I'll stick with the coloring app I have. It will color the entire area at once. Not realistic feeling of coloring, but I think better. And I don't have to log in to use it or save it.

    My favorite is the edge screen. I can get to my favorite apps fast.

    The Note 2 was the heavy hitter. I wish our current Notes had all that stuff still like removable battery, IR blaster, flat screen, no glass back. I mean I love my Note but I slap cases on it so I really don't care about fancy looking glass, just makes it easier to break.
