The popular smartphone maker Samsung launched their new Note series variant Samsung Galaxy Note 9 in India couple of days back. When I’m using the Note 9, I feel more inspired to write with S pen it’s more pretty much cool previews design. And also to draw, take precise screenshots using the tool, snap selfies with the S Pen’s remote shutter, and playfully annotate photos to send to friends.
The Galaxy Note 9 comes with Quad HD+ Super AMOLED Infinity Display with an 18.5:9 aspect ratio, 1440 x 2960 pixels screen resolution and 516 pixels per inch. Which means the display is bigger than the previous version. The Smartphone is powered by 2.7 GHz Octa-core Samsung Exynos 9 Octa 8895 Processor paired with 6GB of RAM and 128 GB of internal storage can be expanded to 512 GB via a microSD card.

Design and Display
Talk about Samsung Galaxy Note 9 design, it comes in two colour variants – Lavender Purple and Ocean Blue. The deeper Lavender Purple model pops more than the Ocean Blue version. Ocean Blue comes with a yellow S Pen, which writes in yellow on the display in Screen-Off memo mode, subtle touch.
The Note 9’s display comes with larger at 6.4 inches compared to the Note 8’s 6.3-inch panel, which means the largest screen Samsung’s ever put in a Note device. The Galaxy Note 9 comes with Quad HD+ Super AMOLED Infinity Display with an 18.5:9 aspect ratio, 1440 x 2960 pixels screen resolution and 516 pixels per inch.
Another attractive feature of Note 9 is their fingerprint scanner. Fingerprint scanner moved from beside the dual-lens camera to beneath it. This makes it easier for those of us with small hands to easily unlock the phone without straining our stubby fingers. Compare to another Note series, Note 9 fingerprint scanner is more than fast.
Samsung Galaxy Note 9 featured with the 12-megapixel dual camera sensor, the same feature Samsung put in the Galaxy S9+. The camera also sports a dual aperture, which can automatically open at either f/1.5 to f/2.4 for brighter low-light images or crisper shots. This is a better option for camera lovers as it helps to capture photos in portraits with blurred backgrounds.
Samsung added artificial intelligence to the Note 9’s camera app to set it apart from the other popular brands. The camera app offers Hyperlapse video and Super Slow-Mo video (960fps) features Live Focus, Panoramas, AR Emojis, Beuty, and HDR options.
Let’s discuss the back camera features, the primary rear camera includes a 1.4um pixel size, dual-pixel PDAF, and optical image stabilisation. Interestingly, the secondary camera has a 2X zoom lens but also has a matching 12-megapixel sensor and OIS. The 8-megapixel front camera features a f/1.7 aperture, autofocus, and 1.22um pixels. Also better video and front image capture quality. Video recording can go up to 2560×1440.
Software and Battery
This device comes with Android flagships platform similar Samsung versions. The Galaxy Note 9 packs a 2.7 GHz Octa-core Samsung Exynos 9 Octa 8895 Processor paired with 6GB of RAM and 128 GB of internal storage can be expanded to 512 GB via a microSD card.
Talk about the battery features it’s packed with 4000mAh high battery capacity. I tried some tasks will still take time because all your photo processing, Asphalt 8, and PUBG- and Fortnite-playing take their toll on system resources. I don’t feel any lagging, slow speed and battery draining problems.
After 1 ho four gameplay, phone nofeelsel any heating problems and battery fast draining. I think it’s pretty much cool. Testing Note 9 before battery life we tried also Note 8 phone battery life. The Note 9 lasted just 20-30 minutes longer than the Note 8, which has a much smaller 3,300 mAh battery.
In our conclusion Note, 9 features are fine, we loved the battery life, Chipset, improved S Pen and bigger display. But testing Google Pixel 2 cameras, sorry I do not recommend Note 9.
