It’s been a very long time coming, but it looks like we’ve finally made it. The industry as a whole has been moving towards phones with tiny bezels ever since LG announced the LG G2 way back in the Fall of 2013, which seems like much further back than it really was. Since then we’ve seen bezels shrink and grow, with some manufacturers choosing things like front-facing speakers over tiny bezels, while some seem to forget that shrinking bezels was even a thing at all.
Samsung’s biggest flagship yet could also be their greatest phone yet, coming in with a feature list that’s a mile long, and a hefty price tag to boot. Retailing at launch for €999/$929/£869, or basically the equivalent no matter where you live, the price of the Galaxy Note 8 is substantially higher than the Galaxy S8 or Galaxy S8 Plus can be had for, so just how much of a jump in abilities is this one?
Every year it seems, smartphones push the mobile photography game further and further. While dual camera systems aren’t anything new to smartphones, particularly Android-powered smartphones, the once-dead trend has now made a powerful resurgence in nearly every 2017 flagship. This combined with smaller and smaller bezels around the phone is creating a unique opportunity for manufacturers to create devices that can truly see the world around them and recreate it right in the palm of your hand.
Muck Rack makes it simple to find people, tweets, or articles that mention any name, keyword, company, hashtag etc. We've compiled this guide to help you make the most of your search.
Selecting a term
Start searching tweets, articles from media outlets, articles mentioned in tweets, journalists'
names, titles and bios with some suggested searches:
Companies or Topics (e.g. iPhone, Microsoft)
Phrases (e.g. "cloud computing") — use quotes to keep the terms together
Twitter handles (e.g. @username) — returns those who have mentioned or replied to
Names (e.g. "David Pogue")
Hashtags (e.g. #sxsw, #london2012)
Bio details (e.g. vegan, Olympics, father)
Muck Rack's Advanced Search allows for many boolean operators.
Find results that mention multiple specified terms, use AND or
+. For example, ensure each result contains both Elon Musk and Mark Zuckerberg by
searching Obama AND Romney or Obama + Romney.
Use the operators OR or , to broaden your search when you'd like either of
multiple terms to appear in results. (This is the default behavior of our search when no operators
are used.) For example, search for democrat OR republican to find results that refer to
Democrats and/or Republicans.
Use NOT or - to subtract results from your search. For
example, searching Disney will yield results about the Walt Disney Company as well as Walt Disney
World Resort. To exclude mentions of Disney World, search for Disney -World or Disney
When using one of these operators with a phrase, enclose it in quotation marks. For example, you can
find results about smartphones excluding Apple's iPhone 4S by searching smartphone -"iPhone
Exact case matching or punctuation
If you're searching for a brand name or keyword that relies on specific punctuation marks or capitalization, you can
find results that match your exact query by adding matchcase: before the keyword you're searching for, like matchcase:E*TRADE .
Use parentheses to separate multiple
boolean phrases. For example, to find journalists talking about having fun in Disney World or
Disneyland, search for ("disney world" OR disneyland) AND fun.
An asterisk can be used to search for any variation of a root word truncated by the asterisk. For example, searching for admin* will return results for administrator, administration, administer, administered, etc.
A near operator is an AND operator where you can control the distance between the words. You can vary the distance the near operation uses by adding a forward slash and number (between 0-99) such as strawberries NEAR/10 "whipped cream", which means the strawberries must exist within 10 words of "whipped cream".
