Galaxy Note 9 vs Note 8 (Unboxing & Impressions)

  • Опубликовано: 10 авг 2018
  • This is my in-depth hands on first impressions review of the Galaxy Note 9. I was able to unbox it for a closer look. Please ask all the questions you can! So far it feels a lot like an S9 Plus with a flair of Galaxy Note 8 to it. BUT we do have road warrior features such as a 4000mAh battery & HUGE amounts of storage!

      Nice first impressions review, especially liked the text added to the video to correct or clarify certain statements.
      Please I'd like to know, does the Note 9 have a night mode (like what we've seen on the P20 Pro with its long exposure thing)?

    Hi Erica I have a question, what's your favorite out of these phones, Samsung s7 (not edge), LG V20, Nexus 6P the original Google Pixel, and the Sony Experia XA1? I know they're not the newest but that's what I want to spend and I don't really need the best phone out there you know what I'm saying?

    Hello Erica, I have an important conquest for you. Can you please see if the N9 works with the 2017 Gear VR? I plan on upgrading from the N8 to the N9 and I have greatly invested in my GVR, I'm sure I'm not the only one concerned about this.

    I'm currently in a Galaxy S8 Plus. I look forward to making a return to the Note line with my next phone.
    I timed it wrong and HAD to upgrade during the Note drought which followed the Note 7 recall.
    I am curious if the Note 9 has the Bixby Button. I don't care for it on my S8 Plus. The button gets in the way with certain mounting/cradle devices so that the phone is off balance. I would welcome the removal of the dedicated Bixby button.

    I'm a big fan of the Note as well. I currently own a Note 8 that has been holding it's own since the day it was released. Long story short, the Note 9 doesn't wow me and the increase in size turns me off from it. Honestly, the Note 7 was a perfect size. They could of kept the size and minimized the bezels. Not impressed...waiting to see what the Note 10 will bring to the table. If it's shadowing the predictions of the S10, it will be worth the upgrade.

    I think it's decent upgrade from a the regular S8 or lesser phones. Not so much if you have a Note 8 or S9/S9 Plus. Let us know if performance is better than the S9, and that device has been on the slow side compared with other brands. At first I thought 30 minutes will be fine for the S pen to last, but then I thought of the poor chap who has a business presentation. I have not see too many of those that were less than 30 minutes, and most of the ones I have seen are an hour or more. A $10 remote would be better in that scenario.
    For the camera, I don't think I would want AI changing the color balance or saturation based on the subject. Getting the real color is my preference.

    Can you test if it still drops frames on 60fps videos like pretty much all other "flagship" Samsung phones. There is a video called "LCD display motion test 60fps" on RUclip, play it on your PC and on the phone at the same time and see if it jitters on phone. It definitely jitters on S7 and on S8 even with the Oreo updates. Massive disappointment. Especially watching Twitch through the mobile app, you can see so much of 30fps even on 60fps stream. Opening up the browser and loading the stream through the mobile Twitch website does get you more stable 60fps but if you open the stats under the cog button > "Advanced" > "Show Video Stats" you can see if it drops frames, and for me, they drop a lot of frames. I have tested this only on the Exynos version of the phones and wohoooo VP9 HEVC 10bit decoding and all that jazz but they can't decode 60fps properly. Way to go Samsung. Makes me feel disgusting.

    Still being way too conservative about the fast charging it seems. I really dislike their disinterest in expanding on it. This is the only line of phones who still don't fast charge with screen on and have the slowest fast charge on the market.
