Samsung Galaxy Note has been equipped with a stylus since we started caring about it. It is not hard to get used to it, and once a user sees how great it is, they will never go back to a phone without a stylus. What is even greater about the S Pen stylus the Galaxy Note has is that it supports Bluetooth Low-Energy connectivity so the on-screen presentations can vary and the creativity is left to do its job.
It is not hard to use because the dot image that appears just below the stylus tip on the phone will help you a lot as you will know exactly where the tip is on the screen. That way everyone could use a stylus.
The pen is also helping you take pictures just like a remote control if the camera is nearby. The greatness of S pen is what makes the Galaxy Note series suitable for business people.
More storage and bigger screen
Galaxy Notes are famous and requested not just thanks to their S Pen stylus, but for example, the Note is now measuring 6.4 inches, an inch bigger than its predecessor. The change is not big, but we can notice it. A variant with more storage is available too, and you can get the 512GB model. If you do that there will be more room in your phone for images, presentations, customer contact or games so that it will become your mini-laptop on the go. You can also use this phone as a backup in case your laptop goes down.
The battery life of the Note 9 has also been improved as it is now equipped with a 4,000mAh battery which is supposed to last you all day compare to Note 8’s 3,300mAh one. It seems like 700mAh is not a big addition to the array of the phone, but it makes a difference when using it.
The display Note 9 has the 2960 x 1440 resolution and 551 ppi, and it is a Super AMOLED Quad HD+ model. Besides that, the camera received an update too, and it is now a dual one with aperture lenses. The front camera is still an 8-megapixel one though.
You can modify the volume in a video
What is even better now is that you can change the audio volume by going to the right side of the image after you shut a video. Smartphones are not great at picking up voices from the background while registering, but this Note 9 can do so however you want.
What another advantage this phone has is that its processor is a 64-bit eight-core super powerful one with 8GB of LPDDR4 memory for the 512GB model and 6GB of memory for the 128GB model. A new Intelligent scan was added to the phone, and you can now use both facial and iris scanning. If you want to keep your phone blocked from everybody else you can use facial recognition and iris and fingerprint scanning.
Even though the Note 9 does not have 5G support, at least the LTE wireless network connectivity is improved compared to previous Note models.
The Android of the Note 9 is also improved coming with the 8.1 version compared to the 7.1. The version the Note 8 has. If you use an optional HDMI connector, you can connect your phone to an external desktop monitor also using the Samsung DeX desktop feature so you can do your work on a larger screen.
How pricey and available is it?
