Samsung Galaxy Note 8 vs Note 9 Comparison

Samsung Galaxy Note 8 vs Note 9: which is better for you?

Are you looking for a smartphone with a large screen? When it comes to the Samsung Galaxy Note 8 and Samsung Galaxy Note 9, both are excellent options with a wide range of Samsung features.

At first glance, it may not seem like there are many differences, but that initial impression disappears once you look closer.

Samsung Note 8: an unforgettable smartphone

Hold a Note 8 in one hand and a Note 9 in the other, and you'll immediately notice the weight difference. If you prefer a lighter phone, then the Note 8 is your best bet. It may not seem like a big difference, but it is if you like to carry your phone in your pocket.

Both phones feature the same classic Samsung design, namely curved edges. The Note 8's screen is very slightly smaller at 6.3 inches versus 6.4.

Samsung Note 9: a full-featured smartphone, with the self-charging S Pen

The S Pen fits neatly on the side of the phone so you don't lose it, and it has the advantage of being Bluetooth enabled. You can use it to take photos and record video remotely. The cameras on both Samsung Notes are virtually the same and take the same quality photos. However, for low-light photography, the Note 9 offers more detailed shots.

The brightness and clarity of the screen is also excellent, even indoors. Samsung has included 512GB of storage onboard, which is exactly what a Note needs when you're working on the go. Unlike the Note 9, the Note 8 does not have stereo speakers.

If you want to try facial recognition, then the Note 9 is a better fit, as the Note 8 lacks it.

The Note 9 is faster and smoother thanks to its Snapdragon 845 processor (835 in the Note 8).

For a great phone for business use, the Samsung Note 9 is a great choice. The S Pen is not only handy for taking notes, but you can also control your PowerPoint presentations with it. Plus, the massive storage and fast performance make it a better choice today.

From phones to fridges, you can’t choose wrong.
