How to Download and Transfer Videos to Samsung Galaxy Note 8

The Samsung Galaxy Note 7 was one the best phones of 2016 – until it began to catch fire. The Galaxy S8 and S8+ are easily two of the best handsets of the year so far, and now the company has just announced the Samsung Note 8 which isn’t just your average next-Galaxy, but also the follow-up to the most troubled Samsung device ever.

The QHD+ AMOLED display is stunning, but that's no surprise. The colours suck you in and perfect blacks make it ideal for Netflix and YouTube viewing, and scrolling through pictures. The slightly odd 18.5:9 aspect ratio is strange at first, but you can stretch videos and apps to fit it so it doesn’t detract from anything. Like the S8, the Note 8 is HDR certified by the 4K Alliance, but the actual amount of HDR content around is still slim.
