Are you the world’s greatest stay-at-home mom, a visionary entrepreneur, a seasoned skilled professional, a sports star or a master of the creative arts? Whether you aspire to become one of these things or you merely seek to become more effective in your existing role, to reach your full potential and manifest your dreams into reality, you need to find good balance between being a doer and a thinker. Many of us have the vision and planning down to a ‘T’ but taking that bold first step of juggling everyday modern life with decisive action towards success, remains a challenge.
Well fear no more because help is near. Leading consumer electronics brand, Samsung, recently launched the Galaxy Note 8, daring users to #DoBiggerThings and #DoWhatYouCant, at the Unpacked event at New York City. South Africans can join in the action with their global counterparts as the device becomes available nationwide today, 22 September 2017, at all major retailers as well as through network service providers.
“Smartphones are an integral part of our lives. They can be used for acquiring directions, capturing important moments and uploading them onto social media, paying for goods and services and assisting us to carry out work functions more effectively. But what if I told you they could do so much more than just the mundane?” says Craige Fleischer, Director Integrated Mobility at Samsung South Africa. “We encourage the brave, tough, persistent, hard to intimidate, hardworking, clever, curious, creative, visionary and ambitious doers to get together, to become part of the latest evolution of the smartphone which will enable you to #DoBiggerThings and #DoWhatYouCant.”
Be forewarned, this latest member of the Galaxy mobile family is pioneering and is by no means ‘business as usual’. The Galaxy Note8 is enabled with the virtual assistant application, Bixby, which helps you to get things done faster and easier. It is an intelligent interface which will support almost every task that your device application can perform through use of voice, touch or text. It understands the way you ‘actually’ speak, ask questions and make requests and uses this insight when actioning your commands. As a Bixby Voice or Home user you can listen to your favourite songs, store your music collection, create playlists, listen to radio and more, using your 14-day free trial to Google Play Music. To activate, enable Bixby voice and say, “Open Google Play Music” or land on Bixby Home and move to detailed page in notice.
The Galaxy Note8 is designed to elevate the mind and transform the way doers interact with their smartphones. Demonstrating Samsung’s commitment to enriching consumers’ lives, it adheres to the highest international safety standards and regulations. This includes a multi-layer safety measures protocol at the product planning stage, as well as an 8-Point Battery Safety Check which encompasses a Durability Test, Visual Inspection, X-Ray Test, Charge / Discharge Test, TVOC Test, Disassembling Test, Accelerated Usage Test and OCV Test.
“Through engaging with consumers to understand their needs and wants, as well as Samsung’s substantial investments in Research and Development (R&D), we have married unprecedented features with a modernised aesthetic design and breakthrough, intuitive-like functionality. We’ve stretched ourselves and dared to uncap limits in our offering to doers – who cannot be complacent with the ordinary. The time off the doer is now,” continues Fleischer.
South Africans can get their Galaxy Note8 and join the global conversation through social media by using the hashtags #DoBiggerThings, #DoWhatYouCant, alongside the handle @SamsungSA, to tell us which feature they love most. Will it be the ability to multitask and do more on the Infinity Display screen, or finding new ways to communicate with the beloved, new and improved S Pen, or taking better pictures with the best-in-class dual camera?
