For this week’s Appy Friday, we’re giving you all you need to know about the new Samsung Galaxy Note 9. With it having such a large price tag we wanted to see what features this device actually has, and see if it’s worth the money.
The Samsung Galaxy Note 9 isn’t the cheapest phone on the market retailing for £899. This new Samsung device has a huge 6.4-inch Infinity Display, making it their largest infinity display ever. The screen has 516 pixels per inch with a 2960 x 1440 resolution and you can get the device in midnight black, lavender purple and ocean blue. Also, the Galaxy Note 9 Comes with an S pen which comes in either the same shade as the device or with the ocean blue phone you get a bright yellow S Pen.
The new Samsung device has a great camera even in low light. The camera has a dual aperture lens with 2 f-stop modes the first being F1.5 which lets in more light to brighten up your low light shots. The second is F2.4 which ensures your images come out clear. This Samsung device comes with 2x optical zoom, and together, the telephoto lens and wide-angle lens work well to shoot a whole scene even when you’re zoomed in.
The battery on the Samsung Note 9 is 4000mAh meaning that you don’t need to carry around your charger with you everywhere. Also, the new device comes with wireless charging meaning there’s no need to have loads of wires lying around either.
Also in the Note 9 there is loads of storage. 128GB of internal storage with an option for 512GB, so there’s no need for deleting photos and apps every month when you run out of space.
The S Pen is a smart stylus for the Galaxy Note and has been transformed so that you can have more control. The upgraded S pen is now Bluetooth friendly and acts as a remote for the new device. With the S Pen, you can take photos, change slides and pause YouTube videos, to charge the S Pen you just slide it back into the Galaxy Note 9 for another 30 minutes of charge in only 40 seconds. You can sketch, draw and design on your Galaxy Note with the S Pen.
So, there’s this weeks Appy Friday. Overall, I think this device seems great if it’s what you’re in the market for, especially if you want a phone which has a clever little stylus for on the go design and drawing features. However, one downfall of this device is that it doesn’t have HDR video recording which would be more expected for the price tag.
