Galaxy S8 Plus vs Galaxy Note9

Which one is best for you?

If you like angular shapes, the Galaxy Note9 sports a more square design with less rounding at the corners than the curvier and more ergonomic Galaxy S8+. And it’s screen is only 0.2-inch smaller.

But if you want a newer model, it’s worth upgrading to the Note9. It has a dual rear camera with Dual Aperture which takes better shots at night.

And Note9 comes with the signature S Pen. It’s Bluetooth-enabled so you can control your phone from across the room. Just click to turn up the volume and shoot better selfies. And why not turn those pictures of you into an AR emoji to share with friends?

The Galaxy S8+ is a powerful phone with a superb camera but the Note9 can take you beyond a day and a half of use.
