Samsung Galaxy Note8



I got a new toy!
The camera makes me forget my Nikon.
It opens with my iris or fingerprint scan.
And I finally have enough memory.
And look...it's orchid gray.
I think they did that just for me!

  1. Looks like a great piece of modern technology. You will need a PhD in computer engineering to use that. Perhaps I should update my camera, a Kodak Brownie 127, with something like that!

    1. I've only begun to figure out what all it can do. haha. It even has a stylus that pops out from inside.

      Keep ahold of that Brownie...those things are so cute!

    2. Can't get the film for it, obsolete, and there's nowhere to get them developed if I could get the film. Shame. *

    3. In this country (USA) at most Kmart stores they used to have a special section that contained film of all sizes and you could leave a roll there to be developed and printed -- but it was a few years ago and I think Sears bought Kmart so I don't know if it still exists. As an alternative, there are individuals here who still develop all sizes of film and make negatives and prints.

    4. I always forget to come here. But I am always surprised when I do. You never cease to amaze me--your enthusiasm for photography is catching like the flu. I have had several Canon Rebels and still have two with lenses of several kinds and descriptions. The cameras that came with phones were riddled with hopeless features so I steered clear but I am reading all of the new ones are as good as picture taking gets and it sounds like you have a winner with your new one. I am anxious to see some pictures when you post them. Meanwhile, enjoy the new camera.

  2. It scans your iris? ...I don't know about this. Next thing, we'll be beaming up! ;-)

    1. lol. I actually don't like that feature. It isn't always convenient to hold the phone up to your eyes.
      But it really works. The fingerprint is easier to do, I think.

  3. Wow, that is so lovely and yes, just your color. A toy and so much more.

    1. Ugh to the broken lens. That's painful. Cell phones sure have come a long way, haven't they?
      So fun and cool.

  7. Cool!
    I have the new Samsung Galaxy S8 but haven't activated it yet. Need to secure some files off my LG G4 first. Never had a Samsung before. Looking forward to it.
    Have fun with yours!

    1. Haven't felt my mind suck out.
      That would surely make me pout.
      Techie is actually kind of fun.
      I'm enjoying it more than a ton.

    1. Thanks, Dianna. I'm sure it does much more than I'm using it for
      right now. I need to figure out all the features. haha.

    1. I'll try to post some soon. I really love the live focus...it gives
      a very cool 3D look. Perfect for flowers, etc.

  14. Glad you like your new toy, but I think the newer model phones are getting scary. They record too much about us, and they're priced outrageously high (like a thousand dollars for the new iPhone X). I'll stick with my older style flip phone.

  15. Look at you!!!
    Very smart and state of the art, Betsy.
    I presume you can text pictures on this model.

    They are so user friendly with taking photos, aren't they.
    Many hours of fun with it . . . :)

    1. Thanks, Ed :) I'm not used to being state of the art. haha.
      But I'm willing to try in this case. So nice to have my email
      on my phone again. The sound quality is much better with phone
      calls, too.

    2. You'll be able to phone me and tell me you love me . . . . haha!

    1. I think you deserve one! I chose this one because it had the best camera on it.
      I bet you'd have lots of fun with it.

  17. How fun!!! I cannot wait to see the pictures! I read an interview with a professional photographer and he said that nowadays those good phones can really take a regular picture as well as any Nikon and company :-) have fun :-)

    1. It's pretty good! And it is very convenient. Especially good for instagram, I think!

  18. Have you always been an Android girl? The cameras on phones these days are amazing, aren't they? I will be curious to see how often you still use your 'real" camera.
