According to Google, the new Samsung Galaxy Note 9 is the “best phone for binging YouTube on“. From its 6.4-inch Infinity Display screen to a 4,000mAh battery that’s built to last, it’s no wonder why everyone’s raving about this sought-after smartphone. Want to know what makes this phone stand out from the Samsung Note 8? Here are five reasons why you’ll want to get your hands on the new Samsung Note 9…
1. More storage space
The Note 8 impressed us with its 6GB of RAM and 256GB of internal storage, but what does the Note 9 have to offer? Featuring up to 8GB of RAM and 512GB of internal storage, the Note 9 lets you game, stream and download ’til your heart’s content! You even have the option to add up to half a terabyte of additional storage via a microSD card – that’s a total of one whole terabyte of storage at your fingertips!
2. Long-lasting battery life
If you thought the Note 8’s 3,300mAh battery was impressive, wait until you see what the Note 9 has in store! Expect a 4,000mAh battery which claims to offer all-day battery life – even for YouTube addicts who continuously stream videos on their phone.
3. Advanced camera lens
While the cameras on both the Note 8 and Note 9 are almost the same – 8-megapixel front camera and dual 12-megapixel rear cameras – Samsung has still thrown in a couple of new features. The Note 9’s dual-camera system has been upgraded with a scene optimiser and dual aperture lens which automatically adjusts itself based on lighting conditions. The camera can also detect if an image is blurry or if someone is blinking… impressive!
4. New version of Android
The Note 9 runs ‘Android 8.1 Oreo’, a more advanced upgrade from the previous ‘Android 7.1.1 Nougat’. This new version of Android comes with an array of new features such as redesigned emojis, advanced fingerprint settings, safer browsing and more!
5. S Pen Bluetooth functionality
One of the main reasons people love the Samsung Galaxy Note is because of the handy S Pen that comes with it. While the Note 8 does come with an S Pen, its features and basic functionalities are not as advanced as the Note 9. From Bluetooth functionality to music playback controls, the Note 9 has really set the benchmark for future Notes. The remote-like pen even lets you snap photos without having to press any button on the phone!
