Samsung Galaxy Note 9: Full, in-depth, Australian review

 

This is one of the best smartphones you can buy right now. But whether you should buy it is another question entirely.

Solid specs ; Beautiful design ; New S-Pen features

Incredibly expensive ; Not a huge upgrade on the Note 8 ; Runs on Android Oreo

Expert review by : Dan Ackerman (cnet.com.au)

Samsung's Notebook 9 Pen steals its best ideas from the Galaxy Note 8 phone

 

It's a slim, lightweight hybrid with the same built-in S Pen as the Galaxy Note phone.

The Samsung Notebook 9 Pen is extremely light but powerful, has plenty of ports, multiple biometric security features and includes Samsung's excellent S Pen stylus.

Especially for a premium-priced laptop, the design is bland. Battery life is merely OK. The stylus feels better suited for a small phone screen than a laptop screen.

With the Notebook 9 Pen, Samsung works some key features from the Galaxy Note 8 phone into a premium two-in-one laptop.
