With this Dual SIM smartphone in your hand, bigger things are just waiting to happen on its 6.4 inches 103.2 cm2 (~83.4% screen-to-body ratio) Super AMOLED Infinity Display. You can click crisp pictures even when it is dark or when it is difficult to keep the phone steady while clicking. The dual-camera system features a wide-angle lens, with excellent low-light capabilities, and a telephoto lens with a 2x optical zoom. Note 9 makes unlocking a seamless experience. You can unlock with your eyes, your face, or a press of your finger. Moreover, with Samsung Knox protecting your biometric data as well as safeguarding what is on your phone, you have peace of mind.
Four Big Updates
The Note series is popular with power users, multi-taskers and creative professionals because of a unique set of features but mostly because of the S-pen stylus. This year though, the Note9 is a dead ringer for last year’s Note 8. Four biggest upgrades that we feel will have the most impact: the new Bluetooth equipped S-pen stylus, the new DEX desktop mode that doesn’t need an expensive dock anymore, a great camera carried over from the Galaxy S9 and a 128GB storage option. The S-pen is not bigger than before but the addition of Bluetooth means it can now function as remote control (to capture photos/videos, to control music/video playback, slideshows or to advance a presentation).
The 6.4-inch Infinity Display of the Note9 has an aspect ratio of 18.5:9 to make multitasking easy. Once you turn on the Multi Window mode, you can have two apps open at the same time. Furthermore, for the two apps that you open together, App Pairing presets lets you open them simultaneously with just a tap. Now it’s simpler to listen to music while you shop online or read reviews. As it is optimized for lists, the large screen of the phone lets you view more and scroll less. Whether you’re going through your social media feed or writing notes, you can see and do more with less scrolling due to the 18.5:9 aspect ratio. Even viewing movies is more enjoyable with a wider aspect ratio. In the landscape mode, the Note 8 offers a 14% larger viewing area, as compared to Note 5, for a richer, more immersive experience that pulls you in wherever you are.
Accurate S Pen
Whenever inspiration strikes, we always seek a pen. And since mobiles are always with us, it makes sense for the Note9 to have the S Pen. It features a0.7mm tip that allows you to draw and write with accuracy. And if you need to make revisions, just click the button on its side to turn the pen into an eraser. Lastly, with 4096 pressure levels, the S Pen responds accurately to every touch for better control while sketching or note-taking.
I’ll be brief here so I get enough time to talk about the features more. The primary camera is a dual 12 + 12MP shooter while the selfie camera has been maintained at 8MP. Video recording with the primary camera is 4K no question about that. If that wasn’t the case I doubt anyone would even consider buying this phone. There is Optical Image stabilization here, HDR, panorama and artificial intelligence to detect/tell what’s on focus when using the primary camera. For example, you focus on a bottle of wine on a supermarket shelf and it will tell you what that is and even suggest stores where it is available with prices. It is a feature you can really enjoy using. All three cameras are magnificent. They shoot like it’s all they are meant to do, and well that’s just coz it is. With its extraordinary display you will view images and watch videos shot by your cameras with enjoyment.
