The Galaxy Note 9’s specs is top-notch. This is an everything phone, one of the absolute best you can buy with All The Things. It will carry you through the next two or three years with excellent photos, Android updates, and all that jazz.
And while the price is eye-watering high compared to last year’s Note 8 (unless you live in Australia, in which case it costs the same), promotions, preorder savings, and future holiday deals can knock hundreds off the Note 9’s cost, making it suddenly much more “affordable.”
Note 9’s battery life will take you from morning to late night on a single charge, is it really worth the price of 300 cappuccinos? Can you find two hours each day to charge from 0 to 100 percent? And 15 minutes extra if you need an emergency top-up?
As for the Note 9’s new, cool S Pen stylus — Bluetooth turns it into a remote control, but it feels forced to use it in day-to-day life.
Is Samsung Note 9 worth buying? Can the performance outmatch options like iPhone, Redmi, or Nokia Xr20? We have been putting the phone through its paces and will summarize our thoughts in this Galaxy Note 9 review. Hopefully, that should clear all doubts and help you decide if it fits the bill.
This phone is a classic modern Samsung, with deep color and shine, a glossy finish that effortlessly picks up prints, and gracefully curved edges. It’s a gorgeous device, even if very little of the Note’s design feels fresh.
