Samsung Galaxy Note 9 vs. Note 8: A Note-able Upgrade!

    Yes but no. The Note 8 can do 40k 60p with the Exynos processor. It's more rugged in drop tests and doesn't break easily, It's not as heavy nor as fat as the Note 9. The screens are identical granted the Note 9 has a better screen size, has better cooling for the unit. The fingerprint reader is a meh thing, actually placing it down the bottom makes the back look ugly and messy, just look at some of the cases for the Note 9. The Note 9 has that USB-C to HDMI DEX thing which is really cool, but the Note 8 has Dex support too, and aside from Power Point presentations, I'm not too sure what else I'll do with those features. Note 9 is $360 AUD more than the Note 8, but in reality if I were to look at Australian stock it's more like $500 AUD - That's a LOT. The clicky Spen photo thing is cool, but it's bordering gimmicky too. The photos and intelligence on the Note 9 is a little better, but I can adjust exposure for photos and things by myself anyway, so no big deal. The Note 9 has faster components which is great, but I'm scared to push this device as a daily driver for any major work, it's a phone, they break down, we have 13" laptops for those types of things, warranty on a brand new device is 2 years, but if you're buying it on Ebay to save money (internationally) you'll be lucky to get a year. I can't see this being a mini computer which is what they are trying to make it. Yes it can work but damn if it drops or stops working due to heavy use. I like having near the same features on the Note 8 with a lot less of a price point.

    The bottom bezel is slightly bigger on the 8 and it has a sd 835 whereas the 9 has 845. There's 400£ price difference where I live and the note 8 is an excellent price.

    What a great phone. Now I have to make the decision between 300$ used Note 8 (with a small crack at the corner of the screen) or buy a 1,060$ new 512GB Note 9.

    Thanks for the review. I am a big fan of notes. It is my phone for the past 5 years. just got the note 8 a couple of month ago. I wish though they get rid of these round edges everyone seems to love... they are not very convinient when you are drawing something. I can imagine a lot of people with art specialities would appreciate it to be really comfortable for that kind of purposes. Anyways, can you tell if this new pen can be used on the note 8, please? (I've checked before and my new pen was working just fine with the older models)

    The downward speakers on my Note 8 Is disappointing I have to place my palm behind the speakers to send the sound forward, battery Is still an Issue spending another $Grand Is strategic, I will no doubt buy a battery bank to lag around might as well upgrade If I can afford It, the Note 9 will still have a trade In value next year. Eyes on 512gb+8gb Ram for Dex

Love my notes, been a note fan from the Note 2 :-) Eight has been great, even been in the water [salt water] quite a few times and have had no issues in over a year... I do like the bluetooth pen option and the fact they have slid the buttons up a bit on the phone..

    Back on Thursday the 9th I watched the Conference for the Note 9. Great presentation for the phone and the capabilities of it. The capabilities in reference to additional functions for the S Pen stylus, the 4,000 mAh All Day Battery with 128 GB as the new base internal memory and a massive 512 GB as the new maximum internal memory. Samsung definitely drew a line in the sand in the storage department for sure. However, I won't be getting getting the Note 9 though due to having the Note 8 and it's still performing fine. An upgrade to the Note 9 isn't necessary for anyone who has the Note 8 right now, unless their Note 8 went through some issues. Another reason I will not have intentions on getting the Note 9 is that generally speaking companies do something BIG/SPECIAL during a milestone year. With that being said next year 2019 will be Samsung's milestone year. The Galaxy S10 and Note 10 devices next year will basically make bold statements across the board. The Note 10 will be the next phone I plan on getting. What was presented for the Note 9 this year was basically an introduction/preview on what to expect next year for the Galaxy S10 and Galaxy Note 10 devices.

    Seems like many note 8 owners are not upgrading. It literally is a Note 8S. For $1000, it's really not "worth" an upgrade. The note 8 is 95% as good and now with this release, will come down in price even more.
