Another clear difference between these phones is OnePlus 6’s lack of a stylus which Samsung Galaxy Note 9 has its own digital stylus, the S Pen, stored in itself. Before Samsung Galaxy Note 9 was released at the end of August, the South Korean company’s team worked on improving the S Pen which now can be connected to the smartphone via Bluetooth. Due to this improvement, the stylus can now be used for action within an app and opening them.
