Samsung Galaxy Note 9 product description
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 newest Note phone is mainly 'more'. In this discussion we will go deeper into that and see if all that more is worth getting one.
More battery and more storage
Samsung has a somewhat unfortunate history with the Note when it comes to the battery. That is why Samsung deserves a compliment for putting its biggest battery ever in a phone. The Note 9 has an immense 4000 mAh battery that will last another day, even with heavy use. If you use it more economically, you can even last 2 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 512 GB 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 1 terabyte of storage, unprecedented for a mobile phone.
More power and more memory
What the Galaxy Note 9 also has more of is processing power. The Exynos 9 Series (9810) is built at 10 nanometres 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 its 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 deliver peak performance for longer, 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 RAM memory, there's plenty of RAM to quickly switch apps and perform tasks. The dedicated 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 dual camera also makes it suitable for blurring backgrounds, ideal for portrait photography. New to the Note 9 camera is the presence of artificial intelligence. It sees which setting is best at that moment. If you take a picture of a plant, it chooses the best settings. If you want to capture a plate of pasta, he chooses the best settings. He even recognises when a photo has failed, for example because someone has blinked his eyes and suggests to take a new one. Another old acquaintance is the S Pen, which has the same functionalities you are used to from him, but has more functions just like the camera. You can use the button to take photos remotely or browse thru 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 release). So be sure to consider the Note 8 or Note 8 Duos when thinking about buying a Note 9. For the real Note fans this is not even a real question, they immediately go for the Note 9. That's because the device has a certain reputation and fanbase. Handsome because we still know how much criticism the first Note received because of its size. Samsung foresaw a need before we even saw it.
