I don’t take the backlash too seriously. According to the study, just below the S8 series.Other aspects like the facial recognition scanner for unlocking the phone work very well I didn’t really bother setting up with the Iris scanner and stuck with the face recognition Since I wear glasses I had to often lift them up to unlock the phone but it worked correctly most of the time even in areas where the room was not so well lit When it comes to performance the Galaxy Note 8 gives no cause for complaints Samsung Galaxy Note 8 Camera review When I had used the Galaxy Note 5 as my primary phone the camera had impressed me The S8 camera is also something I enjoyed greatly With the Galaxy Note 8 Samsung takes it a notch up thanks to the dual-rear camera Live Focus is the feature that lets this camera great a faux depth effect with a blurred background Samsung also lets users blur the background further after taking the picture Or one can also convert this ‘Bokeh’ image picture into a ‘wide-angle’ shot The results in some cases are astounding The 2X zoom feature also result in some very nice shots I experienced this at an event where I took pictures from a distance with 2X zoom activated not-so-steady hands and poor lighting Of course with Live Focus you will need to work on lighting and the object in question itself will determine success But the Galaxy Note 8 performed well on both fronts Yes if the subject in hand is a puppy that refuses to stay still Live Focus might not deliver but that’s for pretty much any camera Camera sample from Samsung Galaxy Note 8 (Image resized for web) Camera sample from Samsung Galaxy Note 8 These are with the Live Focus and various levels of background blur (Image resized for web) Camera sample from Samsung Galaxy Note 8 These are with the Live Focus and various levels of background blur (Image resized for web) Samsung Galaxy Note 8 Live Focus does require some patience and there is scope for improvement For low-light conditions Galaxy Note 8 is still one of the best cameras in the market So is the Live Focus perfect and flawless I would say not yet and there were moments when you could see parts of the object being blurred Still for portraits of people this camera doesn’t disappoint Camera sample from Samsung Galaxy Note 8 (Image resized for web) Samsung Galaxy Note 8 Software S-Pen features review Galaxy Note 8 is not just about the specifications and hardware It has a host of software features you won’t find in the regular S8 series thanks to the S-Pen The S-Pen is now water dust resistant I’ve used a fair few styluses especially on tablets but they have never been my favourite thing With the Note 8 the S-Pen does manage to accurately capture handwriting and that is something I really appreciate in this phone For those who need to take handwritten notes on the go Galaxy Note 8 is the device that does it best There are also new features like pinning notes to the top of the Always-On display send a Live message to friends which is basically a handwritten GIF via the S-Pen the ability to write on the screen etc The creative types who want to draw doodle on their phones the Note 8 is the only option in the market which will let you do a good job of this For those who need to take handwritten notes on the go the Galaxy Note 8 is the device that does it best The other software highlight of the Galaxy Note 8 is the addition of Bixby which has its own dedicated hardware button To be frank the button is annoying I would keep pressing it accidentally while trying to reduce the volume Bixby also has the voice update feature now in India and while I did set it up this is still far from perfect I’m guessing Bixby will take sometime trying to understand my accent The S-Pen is now water dust resistant which is good news Samsung Galaxy Note 8 battery review Once upon a time Note phones were renowned for their long battery life But now we have mid-range phones offering 5000 mAh batteries on board so the Note 8 with its 3300 mAh seems underwhelming It will last 12 hours plus with heavy duty usage (20 hours with more moderate usage) but on most days I felt the Note 8 should have done better I was getting around 2-3 hours of screen on time which is not so impressive In PC Mark test it lasts around 7 hours which is good but nothing exceptional The battery might be the weakest thing around the Note series even though it is still far better than other premium phones Samsung Galaxy Note 8 has a lot more functions for the Air Command now Samsung Galaxy Note 8 Verdict If you’ve been waiting to upgrade to the Galaxy Note 5 the Note 8 is a no-brainer It offers a host of new features a stunning camera though the battery life might not seem so impressive For Note fans the upgrade will seem worth it For those who want a premium smartphone and don’t think the iPhone 8 is worth Galaxy Note 8 is definitely a device to consider It gave us no cause for complaints on the performance camera front and some of the new software features are interesting though a bit gimmicky But if you don’t want to spend Rs 65000 plus just for the Infinity Display and dual-rear camera then the S8 S8+ are still great options in the premium range For all the latest Technology News download Indian Express App IE Online Media Services Pvt Ltd More Related NewsPublished: February 5 2014 1:31 am Lloyd and Susanne Rudolph now in their 80s started studying Indian politics in the mid-1950s at Harvard where they were PhD students and later junior professors Related News Over the last two years this column has focused on politics and political economy Today I write about two extraordinary political scientists of India who have just been conferred the Padma Bhushan by the government of India Lloyd and Susanne Rudolph now in their 80s started studying Indian politics in the mid-1950s at Harvard where they were PhD students and later junior professors In 1964 they moved to the University of Chicago where they remained till their retirement in 2002 Chicago became a long-term home but they also made a home in Jaipur where they lived during their sabbatical years and often every January through March They were instrumental in making the University of Chicago the foremost institution for the study of India producing scholarship of eminence mentoring a score of students interacting with peers and nurturing younger colleagues They also took their responsibilities as public intellectuals seriously often stepping beyond the academy to enlighten US policymakers writing for newspapers and magazines appearing on television even advising documentary filmmakers on India Susanne Rudolph was elected to two of the highest honours of the profession: presidencies of the American Political Science Association and the Association of Asian Studies The government of India should have recognised their massive contributions to the study of India earlier but it is just as well that the recognition has finally come In one of their recent writings they say: “We write as insiders and outsiders insiders because for over five decades from locations in Chicago and Jaipur we have studied Indian politics and outsiders because… we seek to be reflexive political scientists of India” It is a terrific statement about how it is by combining the outsider and the insider that excellence in social science scholarship is often achieved Being inside alone one runs the risk of disregarding the forest losing oneself in trees branches and leaves A pure outsider may only see the forest but have no sense of the trees The latter too is an avoidable truncation The themes on which they have written are wide-ranging: the interaction between caste and democracy; the politics of education and curricula; the rise of what they called the “bullock capitalists” after the Green Revolution; the impact of modernity on Indian religions and the evolving relationship between religion and politics; the interaction between princely and British India; federalism; Indo-US relations; and Mahatma Gandhi who has been an object of lifelong fascination for them In this vast corpus some ideas have stood out for novelty and impact The Rudolphs were among the first to argue — in their book The Modernity of Tradition (1967) — that democracy or modernity would not eliminate traditional social structures like caste as the standard modernisation theories of the time argued in which Jawaharlal Nehru had also believed Rather caste would have a new political avatar Caste groups would use democracy to achieve their political and economic goals as well as fight centuries-old caste prejudices This idea has become conventional wisdom in recent times; it was a pioneering insight in the 1960s Scholars as well as statesmen had believed that modernity’s onslaught would lead to a withering away of traditional social categories like caste tribe ethnicity and religion They wrote about three models of caste mobilisation under democracy: vertical horizontal and differential The first captured the process whereby lower castes led by the upper caste “notables” in villages could get some concessions; the second when lower castes developed their own leaders and mobilised themselves; and the third when an existing caste faced with economic cleavages inside would break up or when several similarly placed lower castes would come together to form a larger political bloc One can find examples of each even today: vertical mobilisation continues in places like Madhya Pradesh; horizontal mobilisation has spread from southern India to UP and Bihar; and differential mobilisation represents what has happened to some lower caste communities of Tamil Nadu or how the term OBC for example has led to a form of composite consciousness never present in India historically On Gandhi the Rudolphs have written prodigiously starting in the 1960s and continuing to this day Some of their key writings have been made available in Postmodern Gandhi and Other Essays (2006) We learn how the Mahatma understood courage in politics related self-control to political potency developed a theory of asceticism as a tool of political empowerment; how Martin Luther King Jr was influenced by Gandhi; and in a truly intriguing essay they show how a “traditional” Gandhi had a very “modern” concept of time something not often noted Examining Gandhi’s routine they argue that “Gandhi was very meticulous about time… (he) considered the normal practice of great public figures to keep their audiences waiting a transgression” Modern Protestant figures like Benjamin Franklin they say also had a similar conception of time though their religious tradition was different One of their new arguments is that Gandhi anticipated the postmodern conception of truth decades before postmodern ideas became popular in the 1980s and 1990s Gandhi they argue had an experience-based situational notion of truth as opposed to a dogmatic notion of truth His autobiography after all was entitled My Experiments with Truth This novel argument ought to be debated My own understanding is that postmodernism is against the idea of truth itself situational or otherwise It is about contesting narratives each picking up a slice of the reality none capturing the truth In one of the founding stories of postmodernist thinking about a parricide Michel Foucault presents narratives of the villagers judges doctor psychiatrist prosecutor and the killer himself The battle is over the meaning of the parricide not about the truth of parricide While it is right to say that Gandhi’s concept of truth was experiential I don’t think he went as far as Foucault about denying the possibility of establishing truth or even the existence of truth I would like to end on a more biographical note I was never a student of the Rudolphs I took a PhD from MIT not Chicago Indeed I started as a critic of the Rudolphs In my youthful impetuosity as a PhD student I wrote a critique of their book In Pursuit of Lakshmi (1987) Their reply in print was spirited but soon something remarkable happened They embraced a younger scholar like me providing hours of scholarly interlocution fruitful advice and inexhaustible warmth I closely watched how as senior scholars combining the insider and the outsider they handled my curiosities scepticisms and rebellions I imbibed a lesson that I hope will last throughout my scholarly life Conformity stifles intellectual life; a critical spirit takes it forward We can be friends as critics so long as criticism takes a
