Galaxy Note8 vs Galaxy Note9

Which one is best for you?

The Galaxy Note9 seems to stand toe-to-toe with the Note8. There’s only 0.1-inch difference between their Infinity Displays and they’re practically the same size and weight. And both phones are water and dust resistant.

But if you upgrade to Note9, you’ll get AKG-tuned stereo speakers and its fingerprint scanner now sits below the camera – so you won’t smudge the lens. Go on longer with a single charge - Note9’s battery has 20% more juice than Note8.

And the Stylus Pen has gone through a major change too and is now equipped with Bluetooth. Charge it automatically from the Note9 so it’s always ready - and it uses very little battery. And shoot pictures from a distance or use it remotely to control music playback and click through presentations.
