No doubt that Note 9 Will be the best highest end of 2018 and maybe 19 regardless of being hybrid and lack of infrared !! Nevertheless nothing of high quality specifications will be foreign !! In Note 10 and 20 we will see more amazings from Samsung magic box...Also price of 25000 money in X place will be reduced in 2025 for the middle class!!!Nevertheless congratulate to Samsung for innovation,invention,creation for all walks of life and gsmArena for fact-writing....
Kcsati, 30 Aug 2018Seen most of the premium segments phone, but have not seen phone luke one plus.. ultimate phon... moreThis is far mod advanced, battery life is amazing, and it only takes up to 1 1/2 hours to charge
Cptnegativepower, 01 Sep 2018Man pocophone is equal in speeds and it can last 2-3 years very easy. Anyway most peple change... moreYes and no. This has many advantages over it. Speed alone is not enough.
..and at buy one get one it's a pretty sweet deal.
..and it will sell for plenty more than 150 to 200 euro in one or two years.
But yes not everyone needs it
Man pocophone is equal in speeds and it can last 2-3 years very easy. Anyway most peple change their phone every 2-3 years so Pocophone is good enough for that no need to buy 1000 euro Samsung and then after 1 or 2 years sells it for 150-200 to get another 1000 eur phone
Seen most of the premium segments phone, but have not seen phone luke one plus.. ultimate phones. Samsung note has worst battery it would take 3 hour to charged fully.. no competition of one plus in any way specially buttery.. premium phone soending this much but battery worst doesnt make any sense
I thinh Zamzung are again manipulating the benchmark results. My Exynos note was getting 2500/8500 geekbench results initially - tben it started getting much bigher results. Looks like if it recognizes the benchmark it is boosting the performance. The real world results are actually same as the snapdragon edition - which is onfirmwd by the app launch times in youtube reviews. I am quite dissapointed to be honest :(.
Dr.Jp, 27 Aug 2018Does Note9 support Dual VoLTEYes support dual volt
Its price is the salary of a person for 6 years without eating but living just like a hermit !!!$ 5000 for the 128 gigs here which is 16000,000 money.!!The most expensive illogical incomplete baseless smartphone in history !!!For ultra rich VIP.Respectively China made J7 pro is better...Buying 16 + of them and make many the happiest....
RazrFlip, 25 Aug 2018Not sure you understand pricing. If you can make a profit of 200 on a device you only need to ... moreSales of flagship devices are going down quite substantially everywhere, even in China where it ought to be growing. They are all getting too greedy with prices. "Get the big profits fast before the bubble bursts". The problem is, are they bursting that bubble themselves?
RazrFlip, 25 Aug 2018Not sure you understand pricing. If you can make a profit of 200 on a device you only need to ... more100% with your point and yes,from the developer side, all is fair and of pricing policy is their own choice, as i understood, huge profit per product.But then again,we are consumers and see this approach differently,because we in the end,pay the price. Although history repeats itself year by year,we pay everytime more. Not long ago, a flagship was priced at around 700-800 $/Â€ or echiv. and now we pay around 1000. So,again,in the end,we consumers, pay and we don't care about developers' approach because we see our pockets emptier year by year.
icatalin32, 24 Aug 2018Awesome phone no doubt about it but I think Apple, Samsung, Sony, LG, even Huawei should revis... moreNot sure you understand pricing. If you can make a profit of 200 on a device you only need to sell a quarter as many as someone who only makes 50 per phone. Also, you have to invest less in stock build up, less in production lines. Then if you can make that profit 400, you are onto a winner. With a high profit you can afford for a device to fall and be recalled. You can afford to spend hugely on R&D and still pay yourself huge bonuses.
The game is PROFIT, not just sales volume.
Turnover is vanity, profit is sanity, but cash is reality.
It is easy to be a busy fool.
Anonymous, 21 Aug 2018In the bezeless era Samsung makes the bezels thicker over its own last gen. Shame on you Sa... moreIt is almost exactly the same height as the Huawei mate 9, which I have. I compared them in store. What puts me off is the curved edge narrowness of the screen, particularly for using the S-pen.
Is this seriously GSMArena's first review where there are NO disadvantages?
Edit: It's in the verdict part, normally a couple years ago it was in the introduction part. Why you do this GSMArena? It's hard to get used to!
Kiyasuriin, 21 Aug 2018I agree with you, excellent! ^~^great comment, 10/10 agree
Awesome phone no doubt about it but I think Apple, Samsung, Sony, LG, even Huawei should revise their pricing policy since their products' prices are way too high comparing with the inovations and hardware level of the selling point timelines. There are other brands which have understood the market better and the came up with price/quality alternatives, worthy of our attention: Xiaomi, OnePlus, etc. Why Mi8 is not shown on the alternatives list for Note9?just asking gsmarena? Yes, it misses IP68, microsd slot and 3.5 mm jack but hey, I own such a product and I honestly don't miss anything. I have 128gb which is more than enough, the small jack-type c adapter is awesome (no more extra holes on the device) and there is no loss in quality or volume and I've never felt the need for water protection. And don't think I'm affiliated to Xiaomi somehow because I'm not, I just love this phone and the overall marketing policy of this brand. I've also checked P20 Pro, Note8, OnePlus8 but I preffer to stick with Mi8.
Hi guys, your friendly phone shop assistant here. So we had the Note IX comeinto storetoday for launch and ive had a chance to play with it. Im commenting in the slo mo video, on my note VIII and olfer phone with slo mo, you capture the video then move 2 sliders to represent where the slo mo starts and stops, then youcan play it back. Now, you have to hold the phone, without recording, then when your subject moves into a very small area of the screen, represented by a square, it will then capture what little, fleeting motion it detects for a micro second in that area. Why has slo mo taken such a huge step back? I do a lot of outdoor motion sports, and this feature is now redundant where as I used to use it all the time, this isnt how sports shows showcase or capture their slo mo, it's just not a change for the better. Anyone else agree? Also, the cool wallpapers with the stars and motion are loooong gone, sad.
