Samsung Galaxy Note 9 Product details

The Samsung Galaxy Note 9 is a giant of a phone with more screen, more battery, more processing power, more storage and more features. It should be clear; the theme of Samsung's latest Note-telephone is mainly 'more'. In this discussion we go deeper into that and see if all that more is also worthwhile to get one.

More battery and more storage

Samsung has a somewhat unfortunate history with the Note when it comes to the battery. Samsung therefore deserves a compliment for putting its biggest battery ever in a phone. The Note 9 has a huge 4000 mAh battery that will last you another day even with heavy use. If you're a little more economical with it, you can even make it two days. Charging can be done wirelessly and via a USB-C cable, both can be done extra fast this time. Also in terms of storage you get more this year. The starter model is equipped with a large 128 GB which can also be expanded via a memory card. There is also a model available with 512GB of storage, at the time of writing only in the Midnight Black version. Combine it with a separately available 512 GB memory card and you have a phone in your pocket with as much as 1 terabyte of storage, unprecedented for a mobile phone.

More power and more memory

What the Galaxy Note 9 also has more of is computing power. The Exynos 9 Series (9810) is built at 10 nanometers and performs 40% better than its predecessor, but what makes it unique is the new way of cooling. The hydrocarbon cooling system ensures that the Note 9 keeps your head cool even during intensive gaming. This is necessary because when temperatures rise, which is unavoidable with intensive use, performance drops. Because the Note9 needs this less often, it can provide longer peak performance, which is very useful when used intensively, such as gaming. In other words, the device remains smooth no matter what you do with it. And with 6GB of working memory, there's plenty of RAM to quickly switch apps and perform tasks. The special version with 512GB of storage even comes with 8GB of RAM if you need even more.

Same camera, but more settings

Samsung equips the Galaxy Note 9 with a double main camera with double aperture. The camera is familiar to us, we also saw it in the Galaxy S9+. It allows him to take the best pictures in the most challenging conditions even if they change quickly. The fact that there is a double camera also makes it suitable for blurring backgrounds, ideal for portrait photography. New to the Note 9 camera is the presence of artificial intelligence. He sees which setting is best at that moment. If you take a picture of a plant, he chooses the best settings. If you want to capture a plate of pasta, he chooses the best settings. He even recognizes when a photo has failed because, for example, someone has blinked his eyes and suggests making a new one. Another old acquaintance is the S Pen, which has the same functionalities you are used to from him, but just like the camera it has more functions. You can use the button to take photos remotely or browse through a presentation. All wireless thanks to Bluetooth.

Can't actually do anything wrong

Everything about the Samsung Galaxy Note9 breathes more, but to say that it is revolutionarily different from its predecessor; no. Especially when you consider that the price difference between the two at the time of writing is very large (something that will come around after the release). So be sure to consider the Note 8 or Note 8 Duos if you are thinking of purchasing a Note 9. For the real Note fans that's not even a real question, they immediately go for the Note 9. This is because the device has built up a certain reputation with its fan base. Handsome because we still remember how much criticism the first Note received because of its size. Samsung foresaw a need before we even saw it.
