Back to school season is right around the corner, and Samsung has the best of the best of tech products such as smartphones, tablets and laptops needed to get students organized and ready for tackling the new school semester!
Here are some great back to school must-haves from Samsung, that are must-have for the office or home office too:
I) The Samsung Galaxy Note 8 is an amazing tablet that users may never want to go back to touchpad typing again! The stunning Samsung Galaxy Note 8 is ideal for presentations, sketches, watching a movie anywhere, any time and any place. Its display is clean, clear, colorful, crisp and the Note 8 has an option to use MicroSD chips to expand its storage (iPads don't have this great option nor any kind of memory card slot. Apple sell optional connection kits that supports SD cards, but they have very limited functionality). Its front and a back camera which produce clean, clear and crisp photos and videos. Note 8's camera is better quality than the iPad mini (Note 8 has 1280 x 800 resolution with 189 ppi; iPad mini 1024 x 768 resolution with 163 ppi). For those who love to watch movies and videos on their tablets, Note 8 has the Watch On feature which is comparable to a universal remote or video content hub! Note 8 comes with a very useful stylus - the S Pen (no need to settle for greasy fingerprints on tablet screens, thanks to the S Pen which feels so natural)! The Samsung Galaxy Note 8 retails for $399, which some people consider is pricey for a small tablet, but your health is worth an extra $100! Students can easily get rid of the dreadful "Freshman 15," just by giving up sodas, candies, chocolate bars, cookies and chips, walk instead of driving or taking the bus or train for a couple of weeks, and you'll save enough for the Note 8 (much cheaper than joining a weight loss program). This tablet is way more convenient than carrying around a laptop which is why it's perfect for school, takes notes with accuracy and ease!
II) The hottest smartphone by Samsung to date, is the one and only Samsung Galaxy S4 (a companion, BFF or guardian angel that will keep you company so you'll never be lonely at school, especially for all those freshmans out there) and it's sibling, S4 Active! The S4's Smart Scroll call logs and text messages with just a tilt of your wrist, without having to touch it. Multi-tasking allows users to still engage in urgent emails and other vital school projects, simply by putting the hand over the screen. The S4's dual-camera outstanding in that it allows you to utilize the front and rear cameras simultaneously, blend photos and even include a recorded message along with the pictures (perfect for on-campus students to send to parents). The S4's Beauty Shot and Eraser is very useful to remove unwanted people or objects from a photo, and the camera senses any motion that goes through the frame and allows users to remove it! The Smart Pause comes in very handy as it automatically pauses a video when it detects user looking away, and restarts the video when looking back at the S4 again. This phone is perfect for international students, because its S Translate is an intuitive and real-time translator for nine different languages! The S Voice Drive listens to your voice so you can hear messages and instruct the S4 to reply, while driving hands-free which comes in handy when driving and expecting an urgent call or text. For the health conscious, the S Health can monitor the heart rate and blood sugar!
For students who participate in water sports, the S4 Active (exclusively on AT&T for $199 (with two year contract) is the best waterproof smartphone thus far, especially for those active in water activities! This dustproof and waterproof sibling of The Samsung Galaxy S4 is definitely a relief for all those who engage in water sports, because it's ok to get the S4 wet at the beach, pool, bar, bathrub, shower or toilet (hopefully you'll never have to go there). The Samsung Galaxy S4 Active can be dropped in bowl of water and it still works like a charm! When drowned in water (be sure to turn on the Aqua mode function), the S4 Active can still take photos, video and even make calls all while still being under water. The proof is in the photos of the picture gallery of this article, where I tested it myself at Pepcom (the world leader in technology showcases), by dropping the S4 Active in the water bowl and calling myself. Miraculously, my own phone was ringing with the S4 Active (that's submerged in the bowl of water) actually calling me. The S4 can be the water for 30 minutes, but was informed that the device has been in the bowl before the three hour event started! Do know the S4 Active is dust proof and waterproof companion or personal assistant that gets you organized, but it's not a rugged phone that you can play boxing or wrestling with.
III) The Samsung Chromebook is very easy to use, portable and economical. Simply turn it on, and that's it! No need to update and install anything, it charges like warp speed and lasts for more than six hours! This is perfect for students, and for anyone who needs a laptop to check emails, surf the web, cloud printing, save photos and documents on the cloud, has a full keyboard for typing with all fingers, has a great size screen and so lightweight (less than three pounds). If there are still any left, be sure to get the Samsung Chromebook 3g, because it offers free 100mb of data every month for the first two years!
