Galaxy Note 9 vs. S9 Plus: What's the difference?

Mobile
[MUSIC] The Galaxy Note 9 is here, but what makes it so different from previous Samsung phones? If you're deciding between the Note 9, the S9Plus And the Note 8 here's what's new. From the outside you'll instantly notice a difference between the square edges of Note 9 compared to the more rounded S9 Plus. They both have and edge to edge display but the Note 9 Has the largest screen of them all. It's a 6.4 inch super AMOLED screen versus the slightly smaller 6.2 inch on the S9 Plus. The Note 8 is right in the middle at 6.3 inches, but overall the design looks very similar to the new Note. The Note 9 and S9 Plus have two speakers for stereo sound, while the Note 8 only has one. [MUSIC] Each phone has a dual 12 megapixel camera at the back, one for wide angle and one for telephotoshots. On the Note9 the lenses are aligned horizontally, on the S9 Plus the lenses are stocked vertically. The Note9 and the S9 Plus also have a jewel aperture system on the wide angle lens so you can switch between F1.5 and F2.4 depending on the light condition. The [UNKNOWN] has 212 megapixel cameras but doesn't have the dual [UNKNOWN] feature. The fingerprint reading is on the side rather than underneath the cameras. And all the phones have an eight megapixel selfie camera But really, what sets the Nut9 camera apart is AI processing. It analyzes the same and detects what you're taking a photo of like a person, dog, or food. Then it optimizes the image for the best results. It also tells you if a subject blinks or if it's blurring your shot. One of the biggest differences between the two notes is the re-designed S-Pen. On the Note 9, it has bluetooth, so you can do things like play or pause music, or use it as a remote to take photos without touching the screen. It also charges automatically when you put it back inside the phone, If you're looking for the most storage, then the note nine is your phone. The base model is 128 gigabytes and then there's also a 512 gigabyte version. The S9 plus and Note 8 both come in 64, 128 or 256 gigabyte variants. Plus you can add a micro sd card to all them to bump up the total storage The 4000 milliamp hour battery in the Note 9 is the biggest out of all of them, and Samsung says it should last you all day. Next in line is the 3500 milliamp hour on the S9 Plus and the Note 8 sits just behind at 3300 milliamp hour. Overall, there isn't a huge jump in specs between the phones. If you want the redesign desk pen, a bigger battery and more storage options, choose the Note 9, but the S9 plus offers many similar features including the same processor for a little less money.
