Galaxy Note 8

Galaxy Note 8 was the most popular Note series of all time because of its hardware specifications; it came with an infinity display and all-glass design and combined it with Note’s most unique feature set. Despite the major device shift, Samsung is very careful to take the approach and keep the S Pen simple, somewhat the same as the predecessor device. However, the main changes were seen in the software developments. Like it is now capable of translating full sentences instead of individual words, the Pen-Up coloring app was also included as standard in the de facto drawing app. The notes can now draw on the lock screen, which was first introduced in Note 5, but now these notes can be pinned on the lock screen, which is very helpful for reminders.

The main function which has catches every user’s attention is Bluetooth skills, which makes it more interactive and easy to use.

However, it wasn’t much popular; the basic work it does is to allow you to point the S Pen at the phone to act as a shutter button. Samsung has added some new gestures. The Galaxy Note 10 came with an inbuilt new video editing app which is more comfortable to use by the S Pen.

Galaxy Note 20 Series

With the Galaxy Note 20’s S pen Samsung has improved the functioning of the S Pen; the company has reduced the latency of the pen and take down to 9ms which is a pretty appreciable improvement because by doing this company has reduced the responsive time of the screen which makes the physical pen as the normal pen it feels like you lottery drawing on paper, apart from this the S Pen has also received some new functioning abilities, like with the help of the pen you can take a screenshot, it can help you to go back to home, screen writes and much more.
