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)?

    01:05 - People are getting so overly-excited about a 21% increase in battery size. (I think people see that first digit '4' and it throws off their estimation of the real {i.e. small} difference.) With the slightly larger, slightly less efficient display (Yes, really. See DisplayMate.) compared to the Note 8, the Note 9 gets only a 9% increase in Battery Endurance Rating according to GSM Arena's standardized testing. Battery life of the Note 9 is essentially similar to that of the Note 8. Both of which are quite good.

    Thanks Erica for this video.
    I'm actually trying to decide between buying the Note 8 or the new Note 9 (after being a Motorola fan since the days of the Droid X. They're just not the same to me anymore imo since being sold to Lenovo).
    Anyway I went today and looked at the Note 9 and although I have never been sold on Samsung phones I must say that I was very impressed with what I saw in the Note 9.
    However, the Note 8 also seems to hold it's own, although the Note 9 brings a bigger battery, more memory. and a few other upgrades.
    Again, thanks for the video.

    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?

    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.
