Samsung Galaxy Note 9 review Specs, Features, If there is a product that Samsung is most proud of every year, it is certainly the latest Galaxy Note. This series of smartphones has succeeded in changing the entire mobile device industry, pushing the limits of smartphone sizes and capabilities every year, and the new Galaxy Note9 is not out of the question. While Note8 was a “sacrifice” model, it delivers a more modest battery from the previous year’s disaster with Note7, Note9 is no longer compromising, being the true embodiment of the “good at all” concept
Design, ergonomics and accessories
Top Samsung Smartphones are “familiar” when it comes to design. Ever since the Galaxy S6, these have been made of glass panels on both sides with a thin metal frame between them to provide good grip and increased resistance to both day to day use and
If you look at the Galaxy Note9 remotely, it’s very hard to distinguish it from his “brother” last year as design lines are largely the same. Like the S9 generation, Samsung chose to improve the existing design instead of trying to reinvent the brand identity again. Note9 is however easy to distinguish from Notes8 once you pick up your phone. The metal frame looks a bit more pronounced on the side, offering a much better handhold as its edges are slightly bevelled and less rounded, something that will help prevent slippage
Also, the phone is heavier and slightly thicker. The differences are not great, but they can easily be felt (6 grams and 0.2 mm) thanks to the slightly different shape. Also, the display is now 0.1 mm larger diagonally, another difference you can not see with your naked eye unless you have the two phones next to each other. If on the front the two phones are almost identical from the distance, with very thin edges above and below the display and glass of about the same shape with a less pronounced curvature and less rounded corners on S8 and S9 on the side
The camera system is borrowed directly from the Galaxy S9 + but like Note8, it is framed in a rectangle with rounded corners, the sensors being aligned horizontally. This “border” is now more harmoniously integrated into the design of the phone as it is painted in the colors of the carcass and is no longer black on all versions. For testing, we had the blue color model that comes with the yellow S-Pen.
The left-hand camera is the zoom lens, while the right camera is the main one with a variable diaphragm. To its right, we find the LED flash and the pulse sensor, something Samsung offers on all its top models. The fingerprint sensor however moved under this camera module, being centrally positioned in a much more natural position for all users . The index finger of any hand can get there without great effort.
We can say to Samsung that other manufacturers, the company is trying to reduce as much as possible the exterior dimensions of the camera module, in relief .
The phone’s edges are home to the rest of the usual features: we have the Power button on the right, the volume buttons and the Bixby button on the left, the audio jack the USB-C jack, the main speaker and the S-Pen stylus at the bottom, and the SIM card tray and microSD card at the top. 19659008] It is impressive how many elements Samsung has been able to integrate into the Galaxy Note9 case, especially when considering the increased battery capacity. Like previous generations of top Samsung devices, the Galaxy Note9 is a waterproof and dustproof phone that is certified with the IP68 standard. Any attempt to repair the phone at home will result in the loss of this capability, the two glass panels being virtually glued to the housing with a very strong adhesive
Given how fragile a smartphone made entirely of glass, which can easily be broken or scratched, I would have appreciated if at least one silicone pouch was included in the package . However, all the other necessary accessories are provided in the phone box. The S-Pen is part of the phone, so we do not have it, but with it we have a quick charger with USB Type-C cable, AKG headphone jack, USB-C micro USB adapter a USB-C adapter to USB-A, a headphone plug and even a spare key replacement key
While the phone’s “socket” has improved, is one of the largest models on the market still does not encourage its use with one hand . For someone with big hands, this is not impossible, but rocking the phone to touch buttons in the corners or to access the notification center may endanger its safety. For most use cases, two hands should be used. Those who use the stylus S-Pen des have no other option, since a hand will always hold the phone while the stylus is handled with the other hand.
