    Even with an iPhone or three on the way, without doubt, the Galaxy Note 9 is Samsung’s best Galaxy yet, one of the year’s biggest phones, and a big deal, to boot. While the Galaxy S9 evolved the camera for the Galaxy family, the Note 9 completes the picture, with a smartphone that really finds a way... Read more

    • Big, great screen, Glass and metal design is still nice, Absolutely stellar performance, S-Pen does even more, complete with battery built in, Using the S-Pen as a remote camera trigger is really cool, Good cameras, Water resistant, Still has the 3.5mm headphone jack
    • Bixby button is still useless, Battery life could be better, Expensive

    This is one of the best smartphones you can buy right now. But whether you should buy it is another question entirely. Read more

    • Solid specs, Beautiful design, New S-Pen features
    • Incredibly expensive, Not a huge upgrade on the Note 8, Runs on Android Oreo

    Samsung’s Galaxy Note line has had a rocky couple of years with the ill-fated Note7 followed by what could only be considered a brain fade by Samsung with their fingerprint sensor placement in the Note8. Read more

    I bought this Mobile roughly 15 days back and din't yet explored the full content of the phone. The S-pen is much improved and it has new features which are worth using! This phone has a massive storage of 512 GB which is more than enough for a life time! Read more
