There is one really obvious difference that makes the Note extra special... the S Pen. S9 and S9+ don’t have one, whereas the Note9 does. Of course it lets you write and draw on the screen, but now you can use it to remotely control apps.

CameraClick to Expand

The Galaxy S9, S9+, and Note9 all have single front-facing cameras. The only real camera differences are found in the rear-facing cameras. Another thing that sets the Note9 apart is its Dual Camera Lens. It has two lenses on the rear camera, allowing it to save two images at once and giving you more editing opportunities.

The S9+ also has a Dual Camera Lens, but does not have the new camera features for the Note9. The S9, on the other hand, has one lens. Though it only has one lens, it's still a 12MP camera that captures high quality images.

RAM is part of your phone's brain: the more gigabytes in the RAM, the faster and more efficient the phone. The S9 has a 4GB RAM while both the S9+ and Note9 (the 128GB version) have 6GB RAM.
