The new model adopts a 3,200mAh battery, which Samsung claims has undergone 8-point stability test. It also features the S Pen, which offers several functions. The phone is, like other Galaxy handsets, IP68 certified which means it is waterproof and dustproof and can be immersed in 1.5m water for half an hour.

Apart from that, you should also feel the latest UX of the Galaxy S8 on the Note FE and also the Bixby voice assistant. But currently, you won't be able to experience all Bixby features except Home and Reminder.
