Pixel 3 XL vs Galaxy Note 9

by birtanpublished on November 23, 2020

What's up guys laughs you're on supersize TV and this is our initial comparison of the Google pixel three XL and the Samsung Galaxy Note nine so we've got the best of Google on the best from Samsung and we're gonna look at one of the key differences starting off with the size they are both very large devices the note 9 is slightly taller and slightly thicker but they're roughly about the same width and they both have large displays we've got a 6 point 4 inch display on at the notes 9 with the pixel 3 Excel we have a 6 point 3 inch display both are OLED displays and have a quad HD plus resolution which means

They're very sharp vibrant being angles are good I like to spend more time to kind of decide which one is better overall but generally speaking both of these have very very nice displays but the pixel 3x old does have a pretty big notch and quite a large chin as well it's the deepest notch that we've seen on a smartphone so far and it's something that a lot of people have been talking about on the note 9 you just have small top and bottom bezels however the pixel 3xo does use the space in the notch and the chain 4 front firing stereo speakers now the note 9 does have

Stereo speakers as well but we have one in the earpiece of one bottom firing so you kind of still cover that up whereas with the pixel to me excel they are front firing which is an advantage but the pixel 3 excel does not have a 3.5 mm jack the note 9 does have one so if you're somebody who's –is a lot of wide headphones then that might be something to consider you do get the dongle out of the box with the pixel so that's the USB type-c the 3.5 mm dongle now moving on to the build and design of both the very premium we've got a metal frame with glass panels on the front and back of

Both the pixel 3 excel however does have a soft edge finish in the back which doesn't attract as many fingerprints as the note 9 but the note 9 does have those curved edges on the front and back that's a signature look on the note 9 which does look really slick it is going to come down to your personal preference which one you like more both do look and feel pretty premium in my opinion and they are both ip68 water and dust resistant which is also great and moving on to the internals both devices are powered by the Qualcomm Snapdragon 805 processor however the note 9 in certain

Markets will have the Samsung Exynos 9 8 10 for round the pixel 3 Excel just has 4 gigabytes of RAM the note 9 either comes in 6 or 8 gigabyte variants now of course specs aren't everything and we would have to put these side-by-side in terms of performance one advantage that the pixel does get is the fact that it's running a stock version of Android and this is going to be optimized for the device that should definitely help it in terms of performance you also get the latest version of Android Android Pi out of the

Box with the knob 9 it's currently on Android Oriol version 8.1 it does have some sense skin on top which does give you some useful additional features but this doesn't mean that you're not gonna be getting updates right away and you're gonna have to wait for those to come along and sometimes they can take quite a bit of time this is something you're not gonna have to worry about on at the pixel 3 Excel now let's move on to the cameras the note 9 it does have dual rear facing cameras both are 12 megapixels and have optical image stabilization the primary camera has the

Variable aperture and it's gonna switch between F 1.5 and F 2.4 depending on the light you see it works very very well in low light the secondary camera is going to give you 2 times optical zoom and that has an F 2.4 aperture I've been using it for the past couple of months and it's been very good overall the pixel 3x so in comparison has a single rear facing camera with 12 megapixels optical image stabilization and an F 1.8 aperture now you might be thinking a single camera is not gonna be as good as dual cameras but this is where the Google pixel really shines the Google

Pixel to last year performed really really well even with a single camera Google have decided to stick to that and they are all about the pixel visual cord this is the machine learning and software processing which really does a great job of your images of course we're gonna have to do some camera tests and put these side-by-side to see which one of these performs better overall but in terms of new features the pixel 3x old does come with a feature called top shot this is where it's gonna be taking multiple shots before and after you actually take an image and if somebody

Maybe looks away or closes their eyes then it's gonna give you a better suggestion or let you pick as well through it's machine learning which is pretty cool with the note 9 you do have something called flaw detection this is where it's gonna alert you if maybe the she took is a bit blurry or somebody's got their eyes closed or anything like that and you can then take another image but with the pixel it's gonna let you choose images that it's already taken so that is quite interesting and then we've got another feature on the pixel called

Night sights and this is where it's gonna try to enhance your low-light images the notes 9 as mentioned earlier does do really well because of that super wide F 1.5 aperture we'll have to see what wins hardware or software of course I'm gonna try my best to do a super safe style camera comparison between these two if you really want to see one then make sure you let me know in the comments section below now when it comes to video the note 9 does get a few advantages here for frame rates because you do have 4k adds up to 60 frames a second on the note 9 or the

Pixel 3 Excel you have 4k at up to 30 frames a second and even when it comes to solar motion the note 9 does have 1080p at up to 240 frames a second or 720p at up to 960 frames a second this is a small bus but you can get some interesting effects the pixel from e excel and the slow-motion side doesn't do too great you've got 1080p at 120 frames a second or 720p at 240 frames a second so when it comes to the frame rates the note 9 definitely gets the advantage here now when it comes to the front-facing cameras things are a little bit reversed on the notes mind you have

A single front-facing camera where as on the pixel 3xl you have dual front-facing cameras all right megapixels with autofocus the note 9 has an F 1.7 aperture the pixel 3xl the primary camera has an F 1.8 aperture that's a standard angle of view and then you've got a wide-angle camera with an F 2.2 aperture and this is gonna be great for your group selfies Goofy's we fees whatever you want to call them and in my experience the pixel 2 and to excel are still the best selfie cameras out there at the moment even compared to lots of the devices that have been released this

Year so the 3 and 3 XL were only gonna improve on this moving on both devices do have a fingerprint scanner at the back of the device and both work really really well you shouldn't have a problem with either of these and the no 9 you do get some additional unlock options so you've got an iris scanner you've got facial recognition and you can also use these both in combination and that's called intelligence can these are things that you don't have on the pixel 3xl so you get more options on the note nine the no nine also comes with an S Pen

Which is very very unique to the note series and it works really well if you're somebody who likes to use the stylus on your smartphone it's gonna be great for all of the obvious things like signing documents maybe doing some doodling or jotting down some quick notes but this year it also has Bluetooth functionality so you're gonna be able to control your note name remotely with the s-pen whether that's to take some pictures whether it's to go through some presentations and you can also connect up the note 9 to a display and that's gonna use Samson decks which

Is built-in and you're gonna be able to have like a desktop experience using the note 9 this is really really useful especially if you're a business user when it comes to the assistance we do have the dedicated fix me button on the note 9 which I know has very mixed opinions the Google pixel 3xl of course does come with Google assistant and you do have the pressure-sensitive side so you can squeeze to launch it and there are gonna be some new Google assistant features which will be coming to the pixel first I'm not sure if they're going to be rolled out to other devices

Like the notes later on one of these is named cool screen and this is where it's gonna answer your phone calls for you if you'd like it to and that's the person who's speaking of Y and then it's gonna actually give you the text on-screen so if it's a telemarketer for example you don't even have to interact with them you can just reject and a block the call right there that is very very cool once again I'm not sure if it's gonna be rolled out to all devices that have Google assistant we'll have to see moving on to the batteries the note 9 that does have a larger battery compared

To the pixel 3 Excel of course usage is gonna vary and we're gonna have to see how both of these perform the note line has been performing pretty well in my experience both devices do support fast charging out of the box which is great they both also support wireless charging you do have fast wireless charging on the note 9 which should charge your device up fast if you've got the right charger and when it comes to the different storage options available you do have a larger storage versions on the note 9 1 to 8 as well as 512 gigabytes whereas the pixel 3 XL comes with either

64 or 128 gigabytes you've also got expandable storage on the note 9 this is something you don't have on the pixel 3 Excel however Google do offer unlimited storage for your photos and videos at full resolution for couple years and a high resolution after this couple of years so that's something that you shouldn't generally have to worry about now finally looking at the price if we compare the light for like 128 gigabyte models then you will be paying the same price in the u.s. for each of these 1000 dollars but in the UK you will be paying more for the three XL

Around 70 pounds more compared to the note 9 so definitely something to bear in mind if you're based here in the UK I'm not sure why this is but these are the figures here for you and that is our initial comparison between the Google pixel 3xl on samsung galaxy note 9 we've got the best from Google and the best from Samsung Kia both devices do have their advantages and disadvantages I'm very interested to see how well B pixel 3xo a camera performance once we've got the latest software versions available I'll be doing some super staff style camera comparisons coming up

Within the next few days hopefully so make sure you have subscribed and switch your notifications so you do not miss those but what do you guys think of Google pixel through excel on the samsung galaxy note 9 definitely drop me a comment below and let me know I hope you enjoyed this video on far useful if you did then do hit that thumbs up of me thanks for watching this SAP on superset TV I'll see you next time
