Galaxy Note 9 Review: Great, But Is It Worth $1,000

4.0
Verdict: If there's one thing Samsung excels at, it's stunning smartphone screens. The same Super AMOLED panel with quad-HD resolution that you find in the Note 8 and Galaxy S9 is what you get with the Note 9, but then again, it's pretty hard to improve upon perfection.
Pros: Gorgeous 6.4-inch display, S Pen gets new powers via Bluetooth, AI camera improves photos, Lots of onboard storage, DeX mode works without dock
Cons: Expensive, Bixby still needs work, Water cooling doesn't impress

Samsung Galaxy Note 9 hands-on: the last of its kind

No reviews
Verdict: Last year's Note 8 was a conservative smartphone. No wonder, since the successor of the Note 8 couldn't be a failure like its predecessor. With the Note 9, Samsung can once again show what the manufacturer is capable of.

Samsung Galaxy Note9 review: Still the king of big-screen flagship phones

4.8
Verdict: I am writing this review fully aware that most Galaxy Note9 review articles and videos have been up for weeks. It's been a long almost two months for me as I've transplanted myself and the Techaeris operations from Chicago to Des Moines. So you'll have to forgive this late Galaxy Note9 review.
Pros: Still a sexy design, Build quality remains strong in the Note series, Samsung's displays are always amazing, Strong performer breezes through everything quickly, S-Pen options are much better this year, Battery life lasts all day and beyond, Speakers are much improved over the Note8, Fingerprint...
Cons: Glass back is a fingerprint graveyard, Pricing is very high, approaching the range some users may pass, Bixby (and its button) is improved but is still not going to be for everyone

5.0
Verdict: Welcome to T3's full, starred, Samsung Galaxy Note 9 review. This is the culmination of my weeks-long reviewing process that has seen me analyse every part of the flagship handset, all in order to see if it is the best Android phone in the world, as well as if it does enough to enter our prestigious...

Samsung Galaxy Note 9 Review: Epic phone, epic price

4.0
Verdict: Value is subjective, and little illustrates that quite so well as the Samsung Galaxy Note 9. Long the largest physically of the company's smartphones, now the Note family pushes Samsung into a new price bracket, too: like Apple's iPhone X, you're looking at a $1,000 membership fee if you want access...

Cons: $1,000+ price tag is eye-watering, Samsung's software can be frustrating, Bixby still underwhelms

Samsung Galaxy Note9 Hands On With A Stylus-Hater

No reviews
Verdict: Hello, my name is Tegan and I am not a fan of Stylus'. Not on tablets. Nor laptops. And especially not on phones. I have often questioned the point of them. After all, I have a perfectly good pointer finger to do the job. I haven't even opened the one that came with my Dell XPS 13.

Samsung Galaxy Note 9 review

5.0
Verdict: A big smartphone with a big price tag. It won't suit everyone, but the improved Note 9 is one of Samsung's best But all this tech doesn't come cheap. The Note 9 is Samsung's most expensive phone yet: the 512GB version will set you back an eye-watering £1099.

Samsung Galaxy Note 9 Review

5.0
Verdict: Although the Galaxy Note 9 features a couple of twists such as the 4000 mAh battery and the BT enabled Pen, it's fair to say that it came out more or less as expected. As the final handset of the Series 9 line, it is evident that it would feature mostly the same strengths with a few extras to make...
Pros: World-class 6.4-inch OLED display, Leading low-light photography, Excellent battery capacity, Excellent system performance, Up to 1TB of storage
Cons: Battery charging should be faster

Samsung Galaxy Note 9 Smartphone Review

No reviews
Verdict: Samsung once again delivers the business smartphone of the year, nothing less is to be expected. Even the owners of the Note 8 have a lot to gain by switching to the Note 9. However, this does not have a lot to do with the S Pen: The new remote control functionality is neat, but not revolutionary.

Samsung Galaxy Note 9 review: more, more, more

4.2
Verdict: Samsung's Galaxy Note phones have always been about more. More screen, more battery, more specs, more power, more features; if you want more of something, the Note is the phone to get. It's a phone designed and built for the power user who won't settle for anything less.
Pros: Gorgeous, vibrant, bright, big display, Fast performance, True all-day battery life, Lots of storage, even in the base model
Cons: High price tag, Large, unwieldy size, Duplicate apps and extra features that don't add much value

Samsung Galaxy Note 9 review: The Pen gets mightier!

4.5
Verdict: While some say that the Galaxy S9 is Samsung's most underrated smartphone, it could be said to an extent. The reason - probably Samsung's inability to offer something exciting and different from its predecessors.

4.5

Samsung Galaxy Note 9 SM-N960F/DS 512GB

Verdict: The Samsung Galaxy Note 9 on paper doesn't do much to set the world alight. Its specifications match that of one or other previously released Samsung smartphone. What it does do, however, is improve on that hardware in almost all aspects, from a brighter display, better CPU performances, better AI...

Samsung Galaxy Note 9 SM-N960F/DS 512GB

4.5
Verdict: Some have faulted Samsung for not bringing a complete reinvention of the , or some other major platform upgrade.

Samsung Galaxy Note 9 SM-N960F/DS 512GB

Verdict: Well before 6-inch displays were mainstream, there was a series of smartphones that made the word phablet trendy.

Samsung Galaxy Note 9 Review: The best big phone around

4.5
Verdict: There isn't another phone on the market quite like the Samsung Galaxy Note 9. It's unashamedly huge, seriously expensive, and jams pretty much every high-end feature into a surprisingly svelte package.
Pros: Battery lasts the day, comfortably, Fantastic, huge display with no notch, S Pen remains unique, Samsung's software has a number of handy features
Cons: The overall design of the S9 Plus is better, Bixby button is an annoyance

Pros: Amazing display, Fast and powerful, Sleek design, Excellent camera, S Pen Bluetooth connectivity, Samsung DeX
Cons: Expensive, Will be too big for some users

Samsung Galaxy Note 9 review

4.5
Verdict: The Samsung Galaxy Note 9 is the best smartphone that money can buy. Unfortunately, it's going to take all of your money to buy it (or at least more than you're likely budgeting for a smartphone purchase this year). The iPhone X drove prices to this level, and we complained then, too.
Pros: Beautiful 6.4-inch Infinity Display, Superb camera, even in low light, Battery and storage last and last, Bluetooth S Pen shortcuts are fun
Cons: Expensive, A lot of small upgrades, No HDR video recording, We hate the Bixby button

Samsung Galaxy Note 9

4.5
Verdict: I pick up the Galaxy Note 9 ( $1,000 at Amazon.com ) , pop out the S Pen stylus and start to write on the black screen in tart lemon-colored digital ink. It hits me: This phone is more fun to use than your phone.
Pros: The Samsung Galaxy Note 9 is a big, beautiful phone with top-tier specs including a massive battery and internal storage that starts at 128GB. The new S Pen doubles as a wireless remote for taking long-distance selfies
Cons: It's expensive and offers few real innovations over last year's Note 8. The fingerprint reader is uncomfortably close to the camera

Samsung Galaxy Note 9 SM-N960F/DS 512GB

4.2
Verdict: The Samsung Galaxy Note series has a reputation for great design, unparalleled performance, and great cameras. The Note 9's camera is definitely up there, but it's still hard to beat beasts like the Huawei P20 Pro and a couple others. Regardless, an overall 8.5 score is nothing to scoff at.
Pros: Good exposure White balance is almost always right Great Portrait Mode performance Food Mode performs amazingly Vibrant colors
Cons: Bad dynamic range (HDR) Food Mode can make images look warm Over-processing can hurt detail
