Get to know the Galaxy Note 8's awesome dual-camera Live Focus, Dual Capture, adjust blur... what does it all mean? We got you.

Samsung's Galaxy Note 8 is the latest phone to join in on the dual-camera craze. With the added camera, you can capture shots that have a bit of depth to them, which when done right, look amazing. There are also a few more benefits such as true 2x zoom -- up to 10x digital zoom -- and a new Dual Capture feature.

Here's what you need to know to get the most out of your shiny new double camera on the Galaxy Note 8.
 X1 or X2

When your first launch the Camera app on the Note 8, you'll notice a new button with the label of X2. This button will activate either respective camera, depending on which camera you're currently using.

By default, the Camera app launches in X1 mode, thus the X2 button. Tap the button, however, and the button changes to X1 as the camera switches to the telephoto lens.

Of course, X1 is the standard wide angle camera setup you have on all phones. The X2 setting changes to the new telephoto lens on the Note 8. Zoom up to 10x is possible, but after 2x it's done digitally and photo quality will take a hit.

Despite what some may think, just switching to X2 does not activate the new Live Focus capture mode Samsung is so proud of.

Scary News About Your Cellphone

The war rages on about the safety of cell phones.  One side argues there’s either nothing to fear, while the other warns that your phone is causes grave harm when it comes into close contact with your body. Citing the views of other experts Dr Joseph Mercola tries to show where the real truth lies.

The year 2014 marked the first time in history that there were officially more mobile devices than people in the world – approximately 7.2 billion.

Although significantly lower, the number of cell phone users is forecast to reach 4.77 billion by the year 2017.

That’s a lot of cell phones and cell phone users. But what’s even more fascinating about all these mobile devices is the behaviour that surrounds them: The average cellphone owner checks their phone 110 times a day, or about nine times each hour; and 46 percent of smartphone owners say “they couldn’t live without” their phones
