Is the Galaxy Note9 Worth It in 2020?

by birtanpublished on November 20, 2020

Yo what's good y'all trail and man i did one of these videos in a minute but today we're going to be going ahead and checking out the galaxy note 9 and i'm about to go and tell you off it's worth it in 2020 so roll that intro let's get into it all right man so yeah i swear if it wasn't for that community post that i put up like a little bit ago a 2020 video for any of these older phones probably would have never happened so yeah i'm glad that i'm finally back at it again with these videos and with the galaxy note 20

Basically around the corner making this phone two years old now man that's that's crazy look at the times man that's going way too quick i'm about to go and tell y'all you should still go ahead and pick this thing up and let me go and run you the specs of this thing now obviously specs don't run the whole story of a phone or any device and that's why i'm not here to tell y'all just the specs and then be like alright now go figure it out see if you want it or not but i'm still about to go and tell y'all anyway

So for the display we have a beautiful 6.4 inch quad hd plus super amoled display with a 2960×1440 resolution 516 ppi in hdr 10. for the selfie camera we have a 8 megapixel wide angle lens with no ois and it can record up to 1440 at 60 fps we also got the iris camera which is 2 megapixels on the back we have two 12 megapixel cameras one is wide angle one is telephoto and they both have a f 2.4 aperture dual ois and it can record up to 4k 60.

Now i want to go and show you all some camera samples real quick before we keep going with this video so check these out now there's going to be 4k 60 recording on the note 9 at 16 by 9 with the back camera and it's actually raining right now as y'all can see so i don't really want to be out here but man just looking at this camera this thing looks nice if you do youtube or you want to vlog or whatever

This is going to do it for you so this is going to be one time this is going to be two times there's going to be four times right here and it's going to be 10 times so it don't look bad it looks pretty decent when you zoom in all right so i just decided to turn on my camera and my regular lighting you got to excuse my shipping boxes back there but oh man this thing jumping this camera man i thought it was going to be decent but yo that's

Hitting me i'm loving this you can't zoom in or nothing but yo i don't even care i'm feeling this man so yeah that's what you get with the cameras on these things at 2020. man that's crazy you got a ip68 water resistance rating so yeah that's pretty much the standard for these flagships these days like the big dogs with the galaxy s20 ultra and all that so i mean if you drop it in the sink or something you should be good but like if you try to go swimming with it then like why would you do that in the first place but yeah just don't do

That you got a qualcomm snapdragon 845 processor with a adreno 630 gpu six gigs of ram for the 128 gig version like i got or eight gigs of ram for the 512 gig version and this thing can actually take up to a 512 gig sd card you got the intellij scan which uses the iris scanner and your face unlock the latest software for it right now it's actually the latest security patch for this month and we're actually on one ui 2.1 with android 10 but for me i'm still on one ui 2.0 i just chose not

To upgrade yet we got a 4 000 power battery 15 watt fast charging a usb type-c port headphone jack but hold up even with all that we still ain't done yet which is the crazy part so check this out yo we still got samsung pay support which supports mst and nfc bluetooth 5 so you won't have any delay with your galaxy buzz or any of your other bluetooth 5 headphones stereo sound a heart reminder that measures your spo2 and your blood pressure

And on top of that of course don't forget that we still got a bluetooth s pen that comes with this so you can play and pause your music that's crazy yo this thing is a beast all of that for something that came out in august of 2018. and people say that samsung overkills it with all their features and everything but no they really don't like look at situations like this where we're in 2020 and this is a 2018 phone this ain't even that far behind the only 2020 features we're really missing is like an ultra wide camera which

I'm not going to just sit here and tell you that that doesn't matter because it definitely does no wireless power share support the bluetooth s pen doesn't support you know the gestures and everything that you can use to change your songs and all that now i already tried with the note 10 s pen so don't ask i already tried that it didn't pair with the note 9 so yeah you ought to look with that and just a couple of other things but like just think about all the things that you get with the note 9

In 2020 that's crazy and of course we can't forget about the little things like it still has a notification light here at the top and this camera still actually has a variable aperture of f 1.6 and f 2.4 something the s20 ultra doesn't even have but alright so let's go and talk about the camera first so you've seen the results i think the camera results is crazy on here at 2020. so i mean you're not going to be taking over snapchat with your ultra wide angle shots because well it doesn't have an ultra

Wide camera in the first place but i mean you're definitely not far behind anybody like nobody's gonna notice that you have a 2018 phone they might think that you have a 20 20 phone because to be honest and this is just my opinion but it seems like pretty much all the cameras these days are pretty much the same so like if you didn't put this side by side next to an s20 ultra or maybe an iphone 11 pro max i don't think anybody would know this even if he did put it side by side do you think anybody would care because

I know i wouldn't and i mean think about it you still got the variable aperture in here so like even something like the s20 ultra doesn't have so that helps it with night shots and everything like that so i mean the camera is still a beast it looks a little bit orange when i was doing youtube videos that one day with the you know 4k 60 but i mean besides that i really don't got any complaints about it next up is the speakers so imma actually go ahead and do a sound sample for y'all right now

so yeah rrp juice world but what do you think about the speakers in my opinion they do sound pretty good it's not going to have any crazy bass or anything like that but they still sound pretty good and for stereo sound like i need me some stereo sound the note 9 is actually the first note to have stereo sound so you came in kind of lucky there because the note 8 didn't but if you really want to hear how that sounded if you're not wearing headphones already i recommend you rewinding and then

Putting in some headphones to listen but it does get pretty loud too all right next up is the screen so this is a samsung screen are we really surprised that it looks good even with this screen protector on it like i still think that this does look really good i mean you got some crazy specs with this thing right i mean you got the hdr10 you got 1440p resolution like you're not missing out with this screen at all and i feel like this is a pretty good aspect ratio of between 16 by 9 and these really really

Wide screens so you're not feeling the bulk of a 16×9 screen by something like an s6 or something but this is a pretty good middle ground here next up is the battery so this might actually depend on which note 9 you get whether somebody like heavily like abused their battery or not or however the situation went but for my battery and this is a brand new battery in here by the way it easily lasts a whole day for me so i mean if you're buying the note 9 i kind of recommend you looking for one in warranty and if it isn't warranty

Go to samsung and accidentally replace the battery because they will do it for you for free and then look at that you have a brand new battery of a used phone that you only have to worry about but yeah for me it works out pretty good and it surprisingly charges like really quick with the cord in wirelessly i wirelessly charge this thing all the time like i never plug it into its usbc port not really often at all so yeah it's 15 watt fast charging works out good for me with this 4 000 milliamp hour battery

And that was actually one of the things that they were heavily marketing about this note 9. next up is the speed and the software in 2020 so man yo i was not expecting this at all with the note 9 because it's still stupid smooth and stupid fast in 2020. like when i was using this thing i was like yeah it might have a little bit lag or whatever when i'm using this but no it ain't even that like there's zero lag with this thing like i'm telling you and like i said you have the latest security patch with the one ui 2.1

Obviously i didn't upgrade yet because i just don't want to so now we have things like quick share and music share and just like a lot of features that we got with the s20 ultra we also got on here now now i do want to just say real quick that we always did have the quick share feature so it was called sensor device so that's nothing new here but they did rebrand it and then they added some new features so yeah that's cool i guess so yeah with the speed and the software zero issues zero complaints i'm good

With this all right if i go over here and open up samsung internet for example it's still going to open up pretty fast and same with these other apps and gaming and all that so you should be good with that you're not going to be running your ultra smooth fortnite like you are in your s20 ultra with the fortnite skin that you got off your note 9 but it should still run pretty good on you next up is the s pen so yeah i got the urine yellow s pen with my black note 9 even though i hate black phones this is

Just what i had to deal with but yeah anyways about that s pen i love the s pen and this note 9 like every time i use this note i always use the s pen because it just has so many features and it works so well for me you know i'm saying so like check this out one of my favorite features about the s pen is that i can just go and hold on to this button and just highlight literally anything that i can't just press and hold onto to highlight and copy and paste or

Whatever so that's cool and i can always play and pause my music like this and i can go ahead and go over to the next track as you can see here like i said you're not going to get the note 10 features where you can just do gestures like this with the s pen and you can't just grab the note 10 s pen and put it in here to go ahead and pair it but it's still pretty good and last up is the call quality and when you're texting people so for me when my note 9 and the earpiece and the microphones and everything i hear

I still have people tell me that i sound really good in my note9 so i don't have any issues with that whether i'm using t-mobile verizon or whatever i still always pretty much have good service on here and like with this with the note 9 and t-mobile you can always video call people if you want to use google dual and you can always go to the messages app and you'll get your red receipts and your typing receipts and all that stuff on there so yeah for calling and texting on the note 9 and 2020 that still works good

For that with this 4g lte it doesn't have 5g obviously and if you're in your basement or something like that like i am right now where i don't have that much of a good signal you can always just use wi-fi calling because it does have this so for the final question is this worth it in 2020 does this get the jenny stamp of approval in 2020 ain't no question about it man in my opinion yeah most definitely it's worth it in 2020 and wait hold on somebody's ringing my

Phones again while i'm doing a video come on i was almost done like come on you gotta be kidding me right now right so anyways like i was saying if it wasn't for my galaxy fold which like completely changed my view on smartphones now i mean if i had to use this in 2020 i wouldn't even be mad at that that's the crazy part now if i was using my s10 plus or my sa 5g in 2020 i wouldn't go running out selling your swappa to use this note 9 but i mean if

I had to use this i wouldn't even really be mad i'd be like alright then it is what it is right like let's say the s20s and s10 started blowing up out of nowhere then yeah like it i mean if i do says note 9 i'll be cool with it so let me know in the comments below do you have a note 9 do you use it in 2020 do you know anybody else that uses it in 2020 and do you recommend it in 2020 i mean honestly it's no wonder why i heard in the article once that somebody said that the note 9 is the last truly great samsung swiss

Army knife galaxy phone and yeah i see where they're coming from yeah most definitely with the headphone jack and like the even like the heart rate monitor some of these things the note 10 doesn't even have so the note 9 yeah i can see where they coming from with that so if you look on amazon right now for note 9 renewed they go for around like 370 or whatever right here looks like if you wanted brand new a 649 for a 512 gig version in ocean blue which is really clutch like that's a

Steal like think about it it was already almost a thousand bucks when it came out but then if you look on ebay you can even find something like right here for 338. so i mean do a little shopping around do your research and see which note 9 looks best to you but yeah this most definitely get my generic stamp of approval in 2020 and it still even looks modern so and by the way yes if you're wondering the call-in text feature on other devices does work on the note 9 so if i get a call on my note 9 it'll pop up on my tab at 6. but let me

Go and hop out of here y'all so thanks for watching if you like this video go and give this video a like and if you really liked it go and subscribe but go and follow me my social media eddie centek on this agreement twitter and facebook but instagram and twitter is almost active but yeah stay tuned for more is it worth it 2020 videos because i definitely got more videos coming up on devices on if it's worth it in 2020 like my tab is six same thing with the s8 plus s9 plus the s10 plus sn5g all those other devices

So i'm out of here y'all thanks for watching i'll see you on the next one peace out hmm you
