Samsung Galaxy Note 9 Review – Next Big Thing, Finally Here!

The Samsung Galaxy Note 9 has been official for almost exactly one month now. Our friends over at Pocketnow have had enough time to give the device a full review. Check out the in-depth 9-minute review video below. If you’re considering purchasing the Galaxy Note 9, this is a great source of information to help you decide.

The most important specs are highlighted in the video, but you can see the full specs in the chart below. The Galaxy Note is typically the device to get if you’re looking for an “everything but the kitchen sink” approach. And the addition of Bluetooth to the S Pen makes that special accessory even more useful. This is one of the best Android devices on the market right now. Samsung knows what they’re doing with the Note, and it may even replace the “+” devices.
