Review: Samsung Galaxy Note9

Hardware Software Wrap Up Comments  2  

The Note9 is an exceptional phone. It does nearly everything better than most other devices and looks good while doing it.

Samsung may have recycled the design, but the hardware is still top notch. You won't find a finer metal-and-glass device. The screen is incredible, call quality is the best I've heard, and battery life is as good as it gets. Add in speedy mobile data and the Note9 handily conquers the basics.

Samsung's user interface may be overwrought, yet it's as powerful as ever. It allows owners to adjust nearly every aspect of the experience while providing useful and helpful features along the way. The camera application is particularly flexible and benefits from the added S Pen functionality. The stylus works well and completes the Note.

The Galaxy Note9 costs a pretty penny. The 6 GB / 128 GB model costs $1000, while the 8 GB / 512 GB model costs a whopping $1250. Carriers are selling the device at various monthly rates. I strongly suggest you trade in an old phone when purchasing the Note9.

Would I recommend the Note9? To those who truly use the stylus, the answer is wholeheartedly yes. If you're likely to leave the S Pen unused, the S9+ makes a lot more sense. The Note9 is the best at what it does, and does it all for you.
