Galaxy Note 9 Review - The Total Package - - Galaxy User Guide

Hey guys, what is up Mkbhd here, and this is the Samsung Galaxy Note 9 an absolute unit uh. This year it starts at a thousand bucks which is again making headlines. I've been using it since it came out since that impressions, video so for well over a week and I gotta say I think it's worth it so last year I was talking about the five principles of a great smartphone. This year the note 9 literally improves everything about the phone and makes the biggest improvement in the battery. And it's getting a lot of flack for being just an incremental upgrade to the note 8, but I actually think it's one of the best. I always say: If you check each box, you have a great quality smartphone.

When we look at galaxy note 9 now it checks every single box and then some so the display is incredible. Some, including me, would even say it's the best display in any phone of last year was already the best display in any phone this year, it's 0.1 inches bigger and it is magnificaciously bright. It's super, vibrant and contrasty and color precise. This is an excellent display for gaming, for watching video and also no notch in case you forgot about it. The only downside to a display like this is how big it makes the phone feel. As you know, I was just coming from the Oneplus 6 with a smaller display and the pixel before that and I used an iPhone 10 very much.

There is also a lot of reaching to get to the top of the display and then back down to the bottom and you're going to notice it. Obviously if you do get a note that you know what you're getting yourself into and sometimes that is just something you have to calibrate but all in all a great display, no question that gets a thumbs up and that kind of leads me to the second part, which is great build quality with the Infinite display. The kind of slitting of the edge of the screen over samsung still does that it is recognizable versus other phones. But really, I think that we forget a lot about the build quality, the industrial design or just a general appreciation that the hardware is one of the most underrated things about this phone.

This is the new blue one that I actually like a lot tight corners like really boxy as a phone, much more squared off than most but I like that they still have the rounded corners of the display, but not by a lot and then overall it just has this chiseled dense look and feel and checks a lot of boxes. It has excellent clicking buttons and I'll talk more about those in a bit and one of the more underrated upgrades to the hardware is the speakers - they are at the same place as they were - but they're now much louder and fuller sounding and just right up better than before.

I definitely appreciate that minor downside of the hardware is the glossy back that will absorb tons of fingerprints, as you can see that as good as samsung's glass looks when cleaned it can get pretty clouded up but obviously the easy fix is to drop a dbrand - skin on it. I'd even say it technically counts as a little bit of an upgrade because they just move the fingerprint reader a little bit to be a more reachable tiny detail, but makes a difference when you're using it daily, but the build quality is great. It's a fast high-end flagship, so expect a snapdragon 845 and six gigs of ram, etc. I'm worried about samsung's skin, though, because it is not light it's a lot. You worry about software updates with it, but from my usage so far it was smooth and snappy.

So that's a lot and then I don't really see myself using 500 gigs of storage on a phone as amazing as it is. Why not push this limit but almost all the stuff I use as far as media music photos. This stuff is all cloud-based anyway, if you are the type of person to have an insane amount of local media and films and games, whatever it is you are doing there can only be one phone. Right now I mean maybe two or three, but that is what node is all about giving you these power user features, plus an extra two gigs of RAM, doesn't hurt, but I think pretty much.

Anyone, including me, will be fine with the 128.6 and there is also a new cooling system to mention so zack jerry rig everything that he tore into his note 9 and showed the much bigger copper heat pipe inside this phone Samsung calls it a water carbon cooling system. This phone definitely still gets a little bit warm on the back, especially when gaming for a while or navigating on a warm window of your dashboard or something like that but definitely never overheated. It is for sure a great gaming phone, though it has the specs and more to keep up and the most amazing display and some upgraded speakers, so that is still a solid combo, and then there is the camera or cameras and uh.

Right now, as far as smartphones go, which is pretty amazing, you have pixel 2 on the top which is amazing. This is essentially the same camera setup as the Galaxy S9 plus a couple of months ago, which makes it an upgrade from the last note. Astfel, like the s9 plus you give it a lot of light and it is an excellent camera. You can get real shallow depth of field if you get close enough to your subject as they are, pretty classic samsung, vibrant colors, and slight over processing. You've already heard this all before the one new addition is the ai in the settings, which they call a scene optimizer that will automatically adjust certain colors when it recognizes the subject, so with flowers it could boost the warmer colors or with landscapes.

It might boost the blue of the sky, but I found this inconsistent and irritating for me more than useful. So I turned it off after a while but what I do think was useful is what they called Flaws: detection or basically if someone blinks or photographs are blurry or something is messed up, it will let you know right away so you can take another one that part is cool but overall yeah, so galaxy note: 8 had a great camera. So that brings us back to what you all probably wondered about from the beginning of the note, which is the battery which bumps up to a 4 000 milliamp hour battery, which is a pretty big jump from last year. You know what sort of followup they had after having had the problems, so they had a 3 300 milliamp hour battery in note 8.

As far as actual life of the phone goes, it's not the best battery life of any phone that will still go to phones with smaller screens, but note 9 is now comfortable last day with a little extra room to spare, which it didn't do previously. So I get about 5 hours of screen on time with most days, occasionally a little more, never really less which is pretty damn good, I'm going to say a minus grade battery that I was pretty happy with obviously having a massive 6.4 inch super bright display cranked a toll on a phone so we felt that last year, with the big screen I think four thousand milliamp hours are actually the appropriate battery size. They like, I said literally, upgraded everything on paper about this phone from last year, which was already good.

All in one phone and like the note, it also has a ton of extras - just because samsung has tons of features to throw in for people who are into that kind of stuff. These are people who buy the note like all the different screen modes and advanced tinkering. Samsung throws in the settings for people who want to dial in the exact color balance and look of their displays like that. It's not a perfect place to uh such a perfectly placed bixby button that can't be remapped. It is a damn shame I only want to remap the bixby button to launch google or twitter or something else I want to do what you can't samsung. I thought you were.

It works s pen remote, and it's great I do not do powerpoints from my phone or presentations or anything like that so I still use the pen for just taking it out, jotting down a note and putting it away. It can't really find another phone that does an incredible high-res oled display no notch ip68 water resistance, a headphone jack, and then up to half a terabyte of flash storage, snapdragon 845, eight gigs of expandable storage. On top of that two cameras are running with Ois and 4 000 milliamp hours of battery.

A thousand dollars is a lot to spend on a phone but if you're gonna spend a thousand bucks on one, this is sure to get you your money's worth and people who are looking into buying a note know what they're into and they are gonna love this but if you're already typing in the comments, a thousand dollars is way too much to spend on a phone. That's going to be the route for you to go so samsung's kind of offering the whole range of different budget options and you can choose - and I think you'll find something you like in there. Thanks for watching later to talk to you guys peace [Music], you..
