Although Samsung GALAXY NOTE9 is an older model, having been launched in mid 2018, the overall quality of this smartphone is good.
As it is a smartphone of higher features but the price is much higher than that of competitors, we recommend it for advanced smartphone users.

Main results

The GALAXY NOTE9 arrived on the market with Android 8.1.0, so there are no problems for security and compatibility with apps and other devices.
The 6.4″ screen with a resolution of 1440 x 2960 pixels is much more pleasant than that of other models and is also very quick to react to commands.
The battery of Samsung GALAXY NOTE9 is standard: in our scenario of use, its 4000 mAh allows it to reach an average of 29 hours.
The 108 GB of internal memory measured (the announced is 128 GB) is a lot, certainly enough to store our data. In any case you can use a SD memory card to expand the phone memory.
This is the new version of the Samsung Galaxy Note8 that we have previously tested. In comparison, the screen size is larger and the processor is faster.
It is a very robust mobile phone: it passed the severe drop test without any difficulty.
Models in this price range are usually very powerful and this phone is no exception: therefore, it can be used without problems even for tasks that require high performance, such as some video games.
Among the most interesting functions are: being dual SIM (two SIM, two numbers, can work at the same time), the presence of the fingerprint reader and being water resistant.
The following model is compatible with 4G connection.


Samsung GALAXY NOTE9 has two rear cameras, the main one of which is 12 Mpixel, which allow you to get good quality photos in all light conditions. This mobile phone has a front camera of 8 MP, which allows you to take pictures of just enough quality, so selfies are not exciting.
