New Samsung video shows how to switch from an iPhone to a Galaxy Note 8


If you own an iPhone, Samsung wants you to know that it's super easy to switch from it to a brand new Galaxy Note 8 (available in the US and other markets since last week).



 



The first video embedded below - uploaded today on YouTube - shows just how simple it can be to transfer your data and content from an old iPhone to a Galaxy Note 8 - which you may have bought because, as Samsung puts it, "you wanted to do bigger things." You'll have to connect your iPhone to the Note 8 via cable, then use Samsung's straightforward Smart Switch app. The Galaxy Note 8 will transfer your stuff only after you select exactly what you want to be transferred.



 



There's also a video - the second one embedded below - showing how to transfer data and content from an old Galaxy to the Note 8. Unsurprisingly, the procedure is pretty much the same as in the case of switching from an iPhone.



 



For some mysterious reason, these two new official videos have no sound at all. Maybe Samsung is feeling a bit nostalgic about the silent film era?

I am wondering what apps Samsung will suggest for Pages, Keynote, Numbers and Movie.

Don't know what are you talking about. But if I make a list what the iPhones are missing from Note 8, it will be huge, and it will block the comment section.

But none of those things matter, they're just gimmicks. Just like large screens, AMOLED, peek and poke, wireless charging and so many other features Apple has since adopted used to be.

I love 5.5" form factor. Perfect balance but I haven't trued any of the new "bezeless" approaches.Maybe I'll still prefer this size phone. I'm wondering if I can live with a non plus iPhone. I want to give iOS a try after so long.
