Samsung Galaxy Note 8 is launched again but this time with the Microsoft edition. It is the same as the Samsung Galaxy S8 which was released in mid-November and a lot of the features of the Smartphone are similar to those of the Galaxy Note 8 in Android edition.This phone has Android skin but in the Play store, there is Microsoft launcher which is same as that of a PC.The launcher will have all the features of Microsoft and they are more user-friendly. A special thing about this launcher is that you can use it on any Android device.

Apps available on this phone:

  • As the phone is available in the Microsoft edition all Office apps are included and this will give you the feeling of having a PC.
  • The main aim is on productivity apps such as Excel, OneNote, Outlook, and Word
  • Users will have the Cortana as well as Samsung’s Bixby personal assistant and it will be users choice which assistant to use, this makes the phone much better.

Samsung Note 8 Microsoft edition is available from Microsoft’s Online Store


Samsung Galaxy Note 8 does not come with the models of 128 GB or 256 GB and I don’t think they will be available for much longer.

So you have only one option but this phone is user-friendly.

Another thing about the phone is that you do not get any other color option; currently, it is available only in black. Overall, the phone is packed with a lot of features and if you want a Samsung phone with Microsoft’s Office then this phone is the most obvious choice.
