Galaxy Note9, S9, and S9+ Comparison

You heard that the Galaxy S9 and S9+ are the fastest phones ever and now you're wondering how the Note9 stacks up. We're here to tell you the Galaxy Note9 is just as amazing as the S9 and S9+, but also comes with its own unique set of features. We hope this comparison helps you decide which one is best for you. The good news is that you can't go wrong with any of these phones.

S Pen

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.

The Galaxy S9, S9+, and Note9 all have single front-facing cameras. The only real camera differences are found in the rear-facing cameras.

The Note9 has a Dual Camera Lens. In other words, it has two lenses on the rear camera, allowing it to save two images at once, which gives 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. However, it's still a 12MP camera that captures high quality images.

Galaxy S9, S9+, and Note9 all have gorgeous AMOLED displays with great picture quality. In terms of size, the S9 has a 5.8 inch display, and the S9+ has a 6.2 inch display. But the Note9's is slightly bigger at 6.4 inches.

Galaxy Note9 has an extra powerful battery that’s 4000mAh and can last 34 hours. On the other hand, the S9's battery is 3000mAh and the S9+'s battery is 3500mAh. So, no matter what you're doing, you’ll have enough power to keep going for hours to come.

However, when you do need to charge your phone, you can use the same type of charger for all three phones.

Storage refers to both internal storage (what the phone comes with) and external storage (what you can add with microSD cards). The S9 and S9+ come with 64GB of storage space, but Unlocked versions of this phones with 128GB and 256GB are also available.

Note9 comes with either 128GB or 512GB. Now that’s a lot of storage! But if you need even more space, learn more about microSD cards.

RAM stands for "Random Access Memory" and it refers to the memory the phone uses to operate. The more RAM the phone has, the faster and more efficient it will be. The S9 has 4GB RAM while both the S9+ and Note9 (128GB) have 6GB RAM. The 512GB version of the Note9 has a game-changing 8GB of RAM! Whichever phone you have, it will be smoother than smooth, even when you run multiple apps.
