Galaxy S9 vs Galaxy Note9

Which one is best for you?

The Galaxy Note9 is the successor to the Note8, with a larger screen, bigger battery, faster processor and more. Plus it has a new S Pen that now acts as a remote control. If you’re choosing between these two phones, the S Pen is the most noticable difference – Note9 has it, the S9 doesn’t.

Both have large screens – though at 6.4 inches, Note9 is ahead by half an inch. And the cameras are similar too – with dual lenses, 2x optical zoom and Dual Aperture that adapts to light levels. But the Note9’s camera has a smarter software that automatically detects flaws – so it’s almost impossible to take a bad picture. And the Note9 – being a later release, has a few other upgrades too, including a more powerful battery.

Whichever you choose, you’re sure to be impressed with its performance.
