Samsung Galaxy Note 9 Review

by birtanpublished on May 28, 2021

This is Lisa from mobile tech review and yay it's the Simpson Galaxy Note 9 the high-end fabulicious phablet for 2018 if we still bother calling things screen phones tablets anyway yeah you know Samsung the ones that have a headphone jack and otherwise known as the fortnight phone because Samsung is getting the exclusive on fortnight for a you know a short period of time before other Android handsets gonna get it we're gonna look at it now but now 9 is an evolutionary phone still there's some important changes here and things you should know in case you're also thinking about the Galaxy S 9 plus so obviously

Has the s-pen if you're totally not into the s-pen including its new remote control feature then you might as well consider a Galaxy S 9 Plus this does have a little bit bigger display though it's 6.4 inches versus 6.3 inches same resolution same awesome OLED ness but a little bit higher quality display cuz citizen just keeps getting better and better at making these displays they both have curved displays but this one has less of a curve so if you find a little bit of distortion as a glass wraps around the edges on that infinity display you might

Like the note 9 better it also has a new so-called water carbon cooling system well what you can see if you take it apart and folks like jerry-rigged everything have done that is a much larger copper heat sink inside nobody has found any water or carbon in there other than the fact that many things are comprised of carbon in the universe but still it's supposed to help it run a little cooler than the note 8 and some of the predecessors I can tell you that when playing a game like for at night it doesn't get hot to the touch often smart phones high-end ones with high

Resolution displays and fast CPUs do get pretty hot this one seems to run a little bit cooler and also when using it for GPS navigation in the car especially in our Texas hot sunny summers it gets a little bit less hot than the usual frighteningly hot that many of today's phones – including the galaxy s 9 plus so the phone has stereo speakers yay one at the top and one at the bottom and they're not that loud it's decent but the sound is very full and of course it has a ubiquitous USB see jack now speaking of us PC I want to thank our sponsors for this video revolta and the

Volta XL cables so they're the people that make the USBC cables lightning and micro USB with the interchangeable magnetic a lifetime warranty which is a good thing because even expensive cables from Apple tend to fail and they're kind of a feel-good company too because up to 40% of their proceeds go to charity which is cool even though Apple killed MagSafe it's a live in spirit here with snag safes the sir cable tips are magnetic if you yank on the cable you can see it's just gonna disconnect it's not gonna bring your Mac

Falling to the floor are your smartphone to these cables are available for the regular Volta with micro USB USB C and lightning tip so buy a bunch of different tips but only one nylon braided rugged cable good times so the new one here that we're here to talk about and they've got an IndieGoGo campaign and they're going to be productizing it very soon is the Volta XL which supports laptop charging USB C powered delivery so obviously your 15 inch MacBook Pro goes up to 87 watts of charging your HP spectre x360 Samsung notebook 9 all your USB C laptops the

Cameras now are the same as that from the s9 family so that's a good thing and you get the AI camera which is pretty much scene detection which we've seen for years on point-and-shoot cameras and consumer-oriented digital SLR cameras and somewhat on phones too some people have said they thought it was kind of slow but no it's fine I haven't had any problems with it and it seems to do a fine job basically if its food it tries to amplify the colors a little bit of it's a landscape it amplifies the blues and the greens good warm tones it was a person's face you get the idea the note

9 and the note family and general have always been the power user phone the mostest than the best is so this time they're doing with storage ok it may be crazy and it may be expensive well over $1000 when you go for that 512 gig of this is one of the few phones that gives you a half a terabyte of internal storage and you have a micro SD card slot so you can have an up to a 512 gig micro SD card you could have a terabyte in your pocket the base model which is $1000 yikes is 128 gigs of storage which is more normal but still at least as pretty adequate

For the price the note series has never been cheap last year's model was around 950 for the list price so we've gone up about $50 in this and the iPhone 10 are the ones that are really blowing market pricing away and pushing these high price envelopes I mean this is as much as you pay for a premium ultra book in the US we get lavender and ocean blue okay it's kind of like gender cliche thing the blue and the pink one right overseas folks also black and a nifty copper color to choose from I really was surprised that we don't get to black as an option in the United

States but well we don't as ever this is a glass phone front and back Gorilla Glass five but it seems fairly durable and it's so far past many abuse tests that we see on the web coming from places like jerry-rigged everything's SquareTrade and all that sort of thing but still it's giant it's glass you're gonna want a case you're gonna want to protect it so let's talk about the sameness and if you put the note nine next to the note eight from the front you certainly wouldn't be able to tell the difference from the back you can because they have moved that fingerprint

Scanner below the camera thankfully not just because you're not going to accidentally put your fingers all over the camera when you're reaching for the fingerprint scanner but because it makes for at least a slightly easier reach on the back when you're reaching for that fingerprint scanner that said if you're wondering why did they put the fingerprint scan or even lower well because the big battery is there so they have to work around that battery the size the shape the curves they're almost identical that squared off design which is certainly a lot square than the

Galaxy s 9 family of phones I find it less comfortable in the hand let's kind of curved just to fit in your hand in an ideal way but oh well there's that that hasn't changed at all the display resolution is the same as the note 8 again they have improved the quality of the OLED display the color gamut is always improving the color accuracy is also always improving in the color temperature adjustments are getting better and I can tell you one thing that once I had the galaxy s 9 plus in hand my note 8 looked a little not as exciting anymore than the screen so now

The note 9 really is coming back and achieving feature parity with the S 9 family with Samsung you never know one series is always playing catch-up or the other in this case it's the note 9 catching up at the galaxy s 9 family now you have the dual 12 megapixel rear cameras with the dual aperture lens feature the dual aperture lens with something that Samsung added with the galaxy s 9 family and that gives you better bokeh effects when you're using the telephoto lens again you get the better display quality that you see on the s9 family of phones and the

Relocated fingerprint scanner and for me one of the most important things is the improved facial recognition the note eight was always slow and not great in good light and not great for eyeglass where's the s9 was a big leap forward and with the note nine now we have it uses Hybrid recognition those facial recognition plus iris recognition it's pretty fast not an iPhone 10 level fast still but it's pretty darn fast it certainly is usable now and I get few occasions where it just refuses to recognize me of course we get the snapdragon 845 this here is the latest

Greatest fastest CPU I don't think anybody with a known date is gonna say oh my snapdragon 835 just felt so slow that was also a very fast CPU and for those of you outside of the United States most countries are gonna have the X notes 9810 CPU and say which is a fine CPU as well the s-pen itself is unchanged from the note 8 other than the fact that well now it's yellow which makes it harder to lose probably is easier to see and looks cool still has that 4096 levels of pressure sensitivity but they've added a Bluetooth radio to the pen and it's has a little super

Capacitor inside the pen that recharges when it's in the silo to keep the Bluetooth charged you do not need any pen charge to use the pen the display provides the power for the active digitizer in this but the Bluetooth functionality is for basically remote control remote control selfie is actually a kind of a handy feature you can use it to control and advance your PowerPoint presentations oh that's exciting isn't it I don't know well I guess you know I'd like to see what you folks think about how exciting that feature is of course if you do like

Note-taking obviously the note is the one and only phone for you because that's really where it stands out as being unique versus other phones 4096 levels of pressure Wacom EMR digitizer artists know and love Wacom EMR is being one the best the most natural and fluid feeling in terms of pen on paper kind of feeling also it supports tilt if you're an artist you're gonna have a lot of fun with this as a pocket sketchbook I know I always do and there's enough Android art programs out there that are fun enough to play with them keeps me pretty happy infinite painter is one of my

Favorites right now it has the other creature conference you'd expect from a high-end phone and we had them also in the note 8 as well and in the Galaxy S 9 family which includes ip68 water resistance wireless charging NFC with Samsung pay support inside and of course the GPS with GLONASS all those usual things Wi-Fi a total of an AC everything you'd expect from a high-end phone alas we still have the Bigsby button and it's still unableto some other function there you can disable it if you want and Bixby as ever is Samsung's probably unnecessary

Alternative to Google assistant which is such a fine voice-activated assistant that it's hard to imagine you feeling like you really needed something else but if there I know there are some Bixby fans out there I'm so happy you you got big speed it's also supports Samsung DEXA so if you want to plug it in USB C to HDMI cable you can try to turn this into a desktop Samsung has been pushing this with their tablets Galaxy Tab s for for example as well and I'm not so sure that people are sold in this we've seen this done again and again in the ancient days by Motorola and then we saw this

With Windows Phone as well you know the phone is sold by all major carriers and you can also buy it unlocked we are using the unlocked version here so no carrier bloatware onboard oddly enough you should with most phone manufacturers the unlocked version is the first one to get OS updates OS version updates major OS version updates but in the case of samsung usually it's the carrier phones that get it first go figure I mean Samsung is not too fast at doing software updates either might much as I love the the note 9 I don't expect to see Android 9.0 on this PI anytime soon

So we're at Oreo 8.1 even though PI just came out a couple of weeks ago and is available on pixel phones the essential phone and a few others so the camera on the note 8 wasn't much of a slouch as for sure it's quite a good camera and this one like I said brings it up to the s 9 s9 plus level of performance one of the best camera phones on the market the pixel 2 family of phones the pixel 2 X Alva iPhone 10 for daylight shots is also very good and this one is really the king for nighttime shot Samsung has been doing a very good job for that so if you take a lot of photos at night if

You like to take club photos concert photos that sort of thing it's notice they've noticeably better than the iPhone 10 of course there'll be a new iPhone coming out any day now so we'll have to see what happens with that but first it's the pixel to it really it holds its own really nicely so that's the samsung galaxy no.9 yes I am a samsung note lover and I admit it but still I have to say every year it keeps getting better as it should and even better this probably won't be one of the exploding ones like the note 7 so you get to keep it and

Hold on to it for an entire year much as we did with the note 8 yes it's evolutionary very rather than revolutionary but they're doing the right things they're giving us higher capacity battery the remote feature for the S Pen it's kind of a gimmick I'd like to hear in the comments how useful you think of it getting the cameras from the s9 family is a big win and the better display so that's nice I know that no longer feel like the note is the second-class citizen so the supposedly sir galaxy s 9 Series I'm a super mobile tech review be sure to subscribe to our
