Samsung Galaxy Note 8 Changing Languages Guide

Just because you got your Samsung Galaxy Note 8 configured in English it doesn’t mean you cannot change it into just about any other language. Whether it’s German, Spanish, Korean, or whatever else you’d like to try, more important than knowing how to do it is understanding the consequences of doing it.


When you adjust the language of the Samsung Galaxy Note 8, the action will affect every single app and everything related to the user interface settings, the third-party applications included. This should make you ponder your options very well because if you happen to choose a language that you don’t really master, it might be difficult to do so when everything on your smartphone will be displayed in the new language.

Moving on to what changing languages in Samsung Galaxy Note 8 won’t do, we have to mention the keyboard language settings. These ones should be adjusted separately and while it’s one more thing to keep in mind, it isn’t complicated either. Let’s talk about the setting tweaks, shall we?
