About Samsung Galaxy Note 9 - Review, Specs + more

With the Samsung Galaxy Note 9 you get arguably the best phablet for 2019 without the price premium that the newer Note 10 attracts. There are innovations in the S-Pen, the memory and the battery, all of which make this the market leader. But is it worth buying a cheaper model? oneCOMPARE finds out with its hands-on test...

Visually, at least, it's the same...

Compared to its predecessor the Galaxy Note 8, there are no big differences at first glance. Only really noteworthy are the slightly larger display, and the new placement of the fingerprint scanner - which has become smaller, and makes unlocking by finger uncomfortable, in our opinion. The combination of iris scan and face recognition works better.

The glass housing is as usual superlative quality and of course it's still dust and water resistant. However, glass has the disadvantage that it is slightly slippery and a magnet for grease stains. Due to its design, the Note 9 can not be operated with one hand, even if you have huge hands like our tester!

More storage and more battery

Let's step under the hood. First of all the larger memory is noticeable — you can now choose between a 128GB and 512GB version. Alternatively, the memory can be expanded with a microSD card, which might actually be a cheaper option. Another small plus here is also the battery capacity, which is clocking in at 4000 mAh. According to this review, this means a realistic battery life of over 11 hours - truly incredible.

Another reviewer on reddit determined a running time of 15 hours with a continuous video playback with maximum brightness. These values ​​are really impressive. Via Quick Charge the note 9 is full again after 134 minutes or just over an hour. For comparison: The much smaller Galaxy S9 is only 10 minutes faster to 100%...

Optionally, the Note 9 phablet can also be charged via a wireless charging station. Other technical advances, such as the even stronger processor and LTE Cat 18 support, provide only a very minor advantage. and the Galaxy Note 9 rarely gets its performance at 100%. Here, the hardware and software are not optimally matched.

Great display, camera lacks finesse

The OLED display offers a standard resolution of 1080 × 2220 pixels, which ensures a sharp picture; you can even switch to 1440 × 2960 pixels, but this high resolution brings few advantages and only uses up unnecessary battery supply. The maximum brightness is 721 cd / m² so, the display can still be read well even in direct sunlight. We really liked the high brightness and also the good colour matching. The high resolution is interesting for VR - if you useit, although the refresh rate is only 28 fps which is slightly disappointing.

Since the same dual-lens technology is used in for the main camera as well as the other one, as with the Galaxy S9 Plus, the results should be at about the same level. But we had a little surprise here - only in daylight is the picture quality good; at dusk, the quality decreases noticeably and even falls below the level of its predecessor.  A real shame and we aren't sure why this is. Maybe the software is to blame, or maybe a firmware update will fix this in time (as is often the case!).

Overall, the photo quality is still stunning and the image stabiliser does a sound job. Videos can be recorded in 4K at 60 fps. A Super SloMo with 960 fps at a 720p resolution is also available at launch.

S-Pen, with a twist

An interesting innovation is the pen. The so-called S-Pen now works as a Bluetooth remote control and with it you can, for example, trigger the camera remotely or control the video playback. However, a drawback is that the app always determines which function can be operated via the stylus so an individual determination is not possible. The battery life of the S-Pen lasts for around 30 minutes only with continuous use, the pen recharges n just 40 seconds though. Of course, the pen input on the screen works even with an empty battery.

The oneCOMPARE verdict

Unfortunately, Samsung still bundles Android 8.1 with the Note 9, which is dated. Although there is no lack of security, but whether the Note 9 will even receive the later versions at some point is not fully confirmed yet. However if you can overlook that, and the slightly higher than expected price point, then the Note 9 is a really impressive package that all nerds out there will want to get their hands on.

How much does the Note 9 cost monthly?

You can get a Galaxy Note 9 on pay monthly, for around £30 a month with a nominal upfront fee. The cost of the phablet to buy is not cheap (if buying outright it would cost you about £600), so this is why the contract cost is not as cheap. If you are concerned about overspending then consider the Note 8 - compare Note 8 deals here

Is SIM Only better for Galaxy Note 9?

Yes, it works out cheaper overall if you can do that, at least nearly always - but it is really a personal preference. Find out more about SIM Only deals here

Not sure which mobile network to go for?

oneCompare completely gets it, it's not easy trying to understand the differences of each mobile network operator. Is o2 any better than Vodafone for this smartphone, when it comes to coverage? Or worse? It's a real minefield. Another example, which is better? A Samsung Galaxy Note 9 ee contract or a Samsung Galaxy Note 9 Tesco Mobile contract?

The reality is, it can make a huge difference to your satifaction with the overall product. Who wants to have cruddy download speeds? But never fear - oneCompare is here. Don't forget to check our latest Blog posts below.

Before you decide to buy a contract or handset, it's important to know if you'll get a signal. Who wants to be walking around into mobile network's blackholes?! After all, ordering your brand new Samsung Galaxy Note 9 contract only to find you can't use your data (never mind going over the allowance!) in your own house will be pretty not cool.

A simple website a number of our visitors have used is Open Signal which maps signals across all major mobile networks within the UK.

So which network has the best signal?

According to Which?, in their recent research, covering June to August 2017, they focused on 4G performance and found that EE offered the fastest average 4G download speeds of the four networks (EE, O2, Three and Vodafone). While EE customers enjoyed average 4G download speeds of 29Mbps, those using the O2 network had to put up with an average speed of just 15.1Mbps.

EE's network was also at the top of the list when it came to the availability of its 4G signal, with customers able to access it 78.5% of the time. Customers with Three had the poorest access to a 4G signal - they were able to access it just 57.1% of the time - that's only just more than half the time, 24/7!

Out of our 2581 Samsung Galaxy Note 9 deals, our cheapest Samsung Galaxy Note 9 deal over the entire life of the contract is £769.99, this includes any upfront handset cost and cashback redemption.

You're now in a great position to compare this cost to a regular Samsung Galaxy Note 9 Contract.
