Galaxy S10e vs Galaxy Note9

Which one is best for you?

Samsung’s 2018 phablet is a big, powerful phone, ideal for entertainment and business. The huge 6.4-inch Super AMOLED Display renders games and movies in crisp high definition, while the up to 8GB of RAM and a monster 4000 mAh battery make sure that transitions are seamless, and buffering is just a faint memory. With half a terabyte of internal memory, expandable up to a whole terabyte, you’re unlikely to run out of room, and the S Pen stylus has been upgraded so that you can activate your camera with it from 30 feet away, or use it as a remote control for your presentations.

The S10e serves a different purpose, being much smaller than the Note9. Neatly pocketable, its screen is necessarily smaller too, but makes the most of the available space with its innovative Infinity-O Display, which does away with the need for bezels in favour of a punch-hole for the 10-megapixel selfie camera. The rear camera showcases Samsung’s growing confidence with a 16+12-megapixel array, offering results you might expect from a high-end digital camera.

The S10e boasts a host of other innovations, such as electrostatic in-screen fingerprint recognition, and the ability to charge another phone wirelessly from its battery. The Note9 remains a fantastic phablet, but the S10e is the new pocket powerhouse.
