Samsung Galaxy Note 9 vs. Note 8: Should You Upgrade?

by birtanpublished on May 24, 2021

This is Lisa from mobile tech review and this is the Samsung Galaxy Note 8 versus the galaxy note 9 now I've noticed in the comments just for our note 9 review yes I do read the comments that there are some of you who are put pooing on the note 9 versus the nonane others you were like yes I got me that note 9 right away I love it so I'm gonna wear both hats and talk about both sides of this conversation we're gonna decide whether you should upgrade or which one you can get if you don't own your them now okay dudes and dudettes I'm the one who says stick with that note even save yourself some money

Right here so my beautiful note a right here here is the note 9 right next or can you even tell the difference point made okay they look almost identical here now the screen is six point four inches versus six point three inches what is a tenth of an inch among friends you've got the same display resolution they're both AMOLED in really good displays one is a Snapdragon 835 iron friend the known eight and the other one is a Snapdragon 845 did you think your no Nate was too slow and underpowered anyway not so much they're

Both really fast phones right they both have facial recognition iris recognition they both have fingerprint scanners at both ip68 water-resistant they both support wireless charging fast charging they have the same eight megapixel resolution camera up front and two 12 megapixel cameras on the rear one telephoto and one wide-angle use a lot of sameness here to spend a whole lot of money on a new phone don't you think hmm and here I am with my chic visor I'm the note 9 person and I say yes the screen resolution is the same the size is a little bit bigger I know that's not

Such a big deal but the colors are better on this the brightness is better on this and it's noticeable so you don't look at your friends s 9 plus and say I am kind of jealous you know snapdragon 845 versus 835 I'll give the person in the baseball cap that one there's not a huge difference in everyday usability and performance right now but what is cool is the base storage is now 128 gigs storage instead of 64 so you got double the storage that's nice yes the price went to $50 but still and you can get that ginormous 512 gig model if you want to making the note 9

Feel like the power user phone and not just kind of the s9 plus with a pen and now I'm moves up to eight gigs of ram too so if you thought the six gigs I knew Note 8 wasn't cool enough are the six gigs on the base model of the note nine you can go up to eight gigs multitasking haven't you power user you and then you know for those of us like me who wear glasses particularly the note aides iris recognition wasn't always all there it didn't work so well and the alternative was facial recognition which isn't secured so it's secure enough to even use with samsung

Pay so they got clever with the note now and they combine them together to speed things up to make it okay for eyeglass wearers I still supposed to be secure and it's a lot faster and the fingerprint scanner hello it's a little bit more reachable and you're not smearing your camera versus the old model I always say if you can't even get into your phone and use it quickly and easily without thinking about it and fighting it then boy that's a big stop a big no-no that makes me say I want the note 9 totally and let's not forget that PS 2 resistance that 4,000 milliamp

Battery Samsung's not afraid of putting big batteries and their phones anymore so the last time was 30 300 milliamps that's a big change and it is noticeable it's a lot harder to kill the note 9 compared to most any phone on the market among high spec phones here at low-end phones that don't have high-end CPUs you know they can run a long time but these high-end phones they tend not that great battery life so biggie there ok baseball hat person said you know the camera resolutions are all the same but we do get upgraded cameras on the rear you get that dual aperture rear lens which makes

Low-light photography and the bokeh blur background focus stuff look more naturally out-of-focus I didn't think there'd be much of a difference even though I really wanted this no 9 but then looking at the pictures it's there's a difference there it might not be rocking your world but there's a difference there also when it comes to cameras now you can shoot 4k video at 60 frames per second versus 30 frames per second again will this rock your world I don't know but it is kind of nice especially if you're shooting kind of action stuff your kids doing sports all

That sort of thing nice looking and lastly there's the s-pen now in yellow so it's harder to lose it looks more like a cute pencil okay that's not very important it has Bluetooth built in as well so you can use as a remote control maybe not the most important thing but I think the yellow is pretty cool so there ya stick with the no date or get the no name if you don't have one right now and save yourself several hundred dollars re definitely going that note nine and get the latest features so here's the deal with a lot of phones where you see that

Evolutionary rather than revolutionary upgrade what the deal is is that the experience overall certainly has improved particularly the biometrics have the screen even if you're not a graphic artist type which I am so I really noticed the improved white balance and the more natural looking colors I think anybody's gonna say well look at that particularly the off angle viewing the white stay white or longer that's pretty nice there's a lot of little things here that make the night note night a more pleasant experience including more storage if you need more

Storage all that sort of thing so you get the idea if you stick with the note 8 because you're a frugal person you can't afford to whatever understandably then it totally makes sense if you skip this upgrade but if your phone enthusiast if you have the bucks to do it if you can take advantage of Samsung's really very generous trade-in program if you have one of those carrier upgrade every year kind of plans anyway then go for the note 9 it surely is better I'm Lisa from mobile tech review be sure to subscribe to our YouTube channel for
