Samsung Galaxy Note 9 – The Pros and Cons


Galaxy Note 9 was one of the most highly anticipated smartphones of 2018 and it launched a couple of days ago. The reason why so many people waited for Galaxy Note 9 to launch is because this device holds the title of being Samsung’s flagship and therefore, it ships with high-end features and innovative features that other smartphones lack.

Now that the smartphone has been out on the market for more than one week, we had more than enough time to test out the unique features that it has to offer. With that being said, let’s check out which are the pros and cons of buying a Galaxy Note 9.

Long Battery Life

One of the key selling points of Galaxy Note 9 is its 4,000 mAh battery. Tech companies have been struggling to create longer lasting batteries for years now and it looks like Samsung has found the secret.

Instead of constantly raising the battery’s mAh capacity, Samsung optimized Galaxy Note 9’s software so that it can last for days on end. In addition, reports are showing that Galaxy Note 9 can last for up to five days of heavy usage.

Improved Bixby

Just like Apple’s iPhones ship with Siri, Samsung’s devices are equipped with a personal assistant called Bixby. The AI software has been improved and Bixby is more responsive, but it does come with a big downside. The physical button for Bixby is poorly placed and users often find themselves pressing it by accident which can prove to be annoying.

New S Pen

Another highlight feature that Galaxy Note 9 ships with is the brand-new S Pen. The cool thing about this S Pen is that it comes with Bluetooth support and it acts as more than a simple stylus. Galaxy Note 9 owners can use the new S Pen to take photos without having to hold their smartphone and this is quite useful.
