Samsung’s Galaxy Note phones have always been about more. More screen, more battery, more specs, more power, more features; if you want more of something, the Note is the phone to get. It’s a phone designed and built for the power user who won’t settle for anything less.
The new Note 9 gives the most more of any Note phone. It has the biggest screen, the fastest processor, the biggest battery, the largest storage, and the most features.
And it also costs the most — the Note 9 starts at $1,000 and goes up to an eye-watering $1,250. It’s easily the most expensive Samsung smartphone ever sold in the US and the most expensive Android phone on the market right now. To get the most, you’ll have to pay the most.
What the Note 9 doesn’t offer is anything new — unlike Note phones of prior years, it doesn’t debut any new technology or design ideas. It just takes everything that Samsung’s been doing with the past few versions of its phones and turns it all up a notch.
I don’t think this lack of new stuff is necessarily a bad thing — the Note 9 is the best phone Samsung has ever made and arguably the best Android phone you can buy right now. But it’s not for everyone.
The Note 9 doesn’t look much different from the Note 8. It has the same overall design, with curved glass on the front and back, and a metal frame. The glass is not as curved as on the Galaxy S9, and it has squarer corners, which gives the Note 9 a larger footprint than Samsung’s other phones. This is a big phone, and there’s no getting around it: if you don’t like oversized phones or want something that can be used in one hand, this isn’t the device for you. Either way, it’s very well made and feels as premium as a $1,000 phone should.
One appreciated change from the Note 8 is the placement of the rear fingerprint scanner. Instead of being up near the camera, it’s now below it, which makes it much easier to reach with your index finger. But because the Note 9 is such a large phone, it will still be hard to hit for those with smaller hands.
The first bit of more you get with the Note 9 is more screen: the 6.4-inch panel is larger than any screen on a premium Samsung phone before it. It’s only a smidge bigger than the Note 8’s 6.3-inch panel, but Samsung was able to shrink the bezels above and below the screen even further, so the Note 9 isn’t meaningfully larger than last year’s phone, despite its bigger display. It also doesn’t have a notch or cutout at the top of the display, which bucks the trend of phone design this year and is sure to make some people happy.
The display itself is exactly what we’ve come to expect from Samsung: it’s a bright, colorful, pixel-dense OLED panel with deep blacks and great viewing angles. It’s easily the best screen available on a smartphone right now and is just gorgeous to look at, indoors or out.
GALAXY NOTE 9 SPECS
6.4-inch quad HD OLED display
Snapdragon 845 processor with 6 / 8GB RAM
128 / 512GB storage with microSD support
4,000mAh battery with wired and wireless fast charging
Dual 12-megapixel rear camera with OIS and switchable aperture
8-megapixel front camera with autofocus
Gigabit LTE Cat. 18
Iris, facial, and fingerprint biometric authentication
Android 8.1 Oreo
Inside, the Note 9 has more storage than any other Samsung phone: the base model offers 128GB of space, while the more expensive version has a whopping 512GB. Both versions have microSD card slots, so you can get up to a full terabyte of storage on your phone if you’re willing to pay for it. It’s also worth noting that Samsung is offering twice as much storage as the iPhone X at each price point.
But the most important bit of more you get with the Note 9 is more battery life. At 4,000mAh, the Note 9’s battery is the biggest the line has ever had, and the largest battery you can get in a Samsung phone. That’s 500mAh bigger than the battery in the S9 Plus and a full 700mAh larger than the one in last year’s Note 8. It’s also bigger than the battery in Google’s Pixel 2 XL, LG’s V35, HTC’s U12 Plus, the iPhone 8 Plus, or basically any other phone you can think of that’s for sale in the US right now.
That translates into true, all-day battery life, even for the heaviest of users that stare at their phones all day long. I’m one of those users and the Note 9 has been able to give me between six and seven hours of on-screen time with my typical workflow, which is considerably more than I get with other contemporary devices. In the week or so I’ve been using the Note as my primary phone, there hasn’t been a single day where the battery didn’t last from the very moment I woke up to the point I went to bed at night. If there’s a single reason to justify the Note 9’s price and size, battery life is it.
The Note 9 is clearly targeted to the person who uses their phone more than average, but if you are a lighter user, I could easily see the phone lasting two or maybe even three days between charges. When it does come time to charge up, the Note 9 supports both fast wired and fast wireless charging, like most Samsung phones have for the past few years. I would have liked to see Samsung improve the wired charging speeds this time around, especially since the battery is so much larger on the Note 9, but I don’t think most people will have an issue with how fast you can recharge the battery.
Like virtually every other flagship Android phone this year, including Samsung’s own Galaxy S9 and S9 Plus, the Note 9 uses Qualcomm’s Snapdragon 845 processor. It’s paired with either 6GB (in the entry model) or 8GB (in the $1,250 version) of RAM and it has performed flawlessly in the time I’ve been using the phone. The Note 9 is very snappy and responsive, even in the entry-level model I’ve been testing for this review, and I haven’t encountered any issues with choppiness, lag, or stuttering when scrolling. Apps open quickly and switching between a bunch of different apps is a breeze. But it’s not remarkably better than any other flagship phone I’ve used this year, since most of them are using the same processor. You can get the same level of performance from a OnePlus 6, which costs half the price of the Note 9.
Another similarity the Note 9 shares with the Galaxy S9 Plus is its camera system. The rear camera is a dual 12-megapixel system, with a wide-angle lens with switchable apertures and a telephoto lens for zooming in closer on your subject or creating portrait blur effects. The front camera has 8 megapixels of resolution and autofocus. Since it’s basically the same camera platform as the S9 Plus, images from the Note 9 are unsurprisingly very similar to those from the S9. They are sharp and vibrant, with great low-light performance. Autofocus is lightning quick and there are plenty of modes in the camera app for various effects and video shooting. The Samsung cameras are certainly among the best you can get right now, and it really comes down to personal preference, whether or not you like the way the images look compared to Google or Apple’s cameras.
The Note 9’s camera app does have a couple of new features, adopting some of the auto scene-detecting AI features other phones have shipped with this year. Point it at something and it will try to identify what that object is and optimize the camera settings for it. Samsung says the camera can recognize 20 different types of scenes, including food, portraits, pets, landscapes, beaches, sunrises and sunsets, and more. In my tests, it did a good job identifying animals, food, and plants, and it did so quicker than other phones with similar features. But I didn’t notice much of a difference in the images after it had allegedly optimized them.
I did appreciate the other new feature in the camera app, which gives you a notification if the last picture you took might be blurry or the person in it blinked, so you can take it again.
The Note 9 does separate itself a little from the S9 line with its S Pen stylus. Like every Note phone before it, you can use the Note 9’s stylus to jot down notes, doodle, or navigate the phone’s interface. The new feature this year is the ability to use the button on it as a remote to snap a picture, skip a track in a music player, or advance a slide in a presentation. It’s neat, but as someone who’s never really found much use for the S Pen, it isn’t something that I found very useful. There are S Pen diehards out there who might appreciate these features, though — you probably already know if you’re one of them.
The Note 9 also brings some improvements to Samsung’s DeX feature, which lets you plug the phone into a computer monitor and use it like a desktop computer. Instead of requiring a special dock, you can load DeX with a simple USB-C to HDMI adapter on the Note 9, which makes it a bit easier to get up and running than with an S9. The Note 9 can be used as a trackpad when it’s plugged in to a larger screen, or you can doodle on it with the S Pen and have your drawings show up on the big screen.
But DeX is still DeX, and to really make the most use out of it, not only do you need an external display, you’ll need a keyboard and mouse, too, because the Note 9’s trackpad feature is rather bad. Using DeX, even with all the aforementioned accessories, is still slow, cumbersome, and frustrating, with app incompatibilities and bottlenecks. I liken it to drinking a milkshake through a coffee stirrer: you’ll get some milkshake eventually, but you’ll also get frustrated and end up with a headache. At that point, you might as well just use a laptop like everyone else.
Samsung’s other software bugbears are present on the Note 9, too. It’s running Android 8.1 Oreo, but there’s zero indication when it might get Android 9 Pie, which was publicly released for Google’s phones earlier this month. There are still lots of unnecessary duplicate apps, even on the unlocked model I’ve been using, so out of the box there are two web browsers, two email apps, two photo galleries, and so on.
And there’s Bixby, Samsung’s oft-maligned voice assistant. The Note 9 has a revamped version of Bixby, with an adjusted user interface and deeper integration with third-party services. But like DeX, these improvements are merely skin-deep and Bixby has all of the same problems it’s always had: it’s slow, stupid, and generally not as good as Google Assistant, which is conveniently also on the phone. For example, I asked Bixby to “give me directions to JFK”, and it routed me to a fried chicken joint with “JFK” in the name instead of the international airport. I like fried chicken as much as anyone, but those weren’t the wings I was looking for.
As with Samsung’s other premium phones, the Note 9 has a button on the left side that is dedicated to launching Bixby and can’t be reprogrammed to something more useful. Samsung says that the version of Bixby on the device I’ve been testing is considered pre-release and that there will be a final version available when the phone hits store shelves on August 24th. But I’m not confident that it will make much of a difference.
None of this is to say the software completely ruins the Note 9 experience — most people will find it to be just fine — but at this point, it’s definitely the place where Samsung has the most room for improvement.
The Note 9 rightfully represents the pinnacle of Samsung’s smartphone line. It’s the best of everything, from display, to battery life, to performance and so on. It will likely be at the top of many best smartphone lists this year.
But it doesn’t come without compromises. It is a giant phone, which makes it a non-starter for a lot of people. It has a lot of features that most people will either ignore or find little value in. It has far from perfect software and Samsung has a terrible track record with updates.
The biggest compromise is in its price, which is hundreds of dollars more than what the very-similar Galaxy S9 Plus sells for right now. The S9 Plus has the same camera system; same processor; a nearly as-big, just as gorgeous display; and basically the same software experience. The Note 9 ups the ante with notably better battery life and the S Pen, but only one of those will be universally appreciated.
For the Note 9 to make sense, you need to want more than just “more,” you need to want the most. And having the most will cost you the most.

The J3 is a good basic smart phone. I bought it to replace a Galaxy S2.
The cameras and other features are comparable with the DISPLAY and the PROCESSOR SPEED being superior to an S2. The battery has more power, the phone itself is ‘slightly larger’ and of course the operating system is a newer version. Both FRONT and BACK cameras Accepts MicroSD cards This model is a DUAL SIM card so you -could- use it with two separate carriers
I bought a number of unlocked Samsung Galaxy Phones to take as gifts to family members on a trip to Gabon. I’m an iPhone user, but used a Samsung J7. A great feature of this duos phone is the dual SIM card, which enables Gabonese, most of whom have two lines, to save money by calling in-network. The internet features on these phones also work very well: Viber, Skype, Email, What’s app, etc. This is an excellent phone for the money.
It is “THE” best phone I’ve owned by far! Very responsive, bright screen, pretty clear pix and video, 8gb of memory, really bright light from the flash will help you take pictures or using the flashlight also will help you get around at night. Plus the seller must’ve used the Flash super hero to deliver it cause it got to me waaaay before expected. It even outperforms my son’s Ipad mini!
After testing it from San Francisco to Los Angeles and up to Lake Tahoe, I can confidently say that the Galaxy Note 8 is without a doubt Samsung’s best, most feature-packed phone.
Does it scrub away the bad taste of last year’s disastrous Note 7 double-recall? Does it offer enough over the cheaper Galaxy S8 and S8 Plus to make it worth the sky-high price?
We have answers. Samsung has amped up its safety testing and reduced the Note 8’s battery size to avoid repeating last year’s fatal battery mistake, though we won’t know if it’s truly safe until weeks have gone by without a reported incident.
Buyers of the Galaxy Note 7– who had to relinquish their flame-prone phones– and 2015’s Galaxy Note 5– until now, the “best” Note phone you could buy– will find the Note 8 to be the high-end handset they should have gotten last year, and then some. It largely merges the Note 7 with the S8 and S8 Plus.
One bright star is the presence of a dual camera setup on the Note 8’s back. There’s also the Note 8’s vibrant 6.3-inch OLED screen, and a tall, slim design that goes lean on bezels. You’ll find a welcome repeat of the Galaxy S8’s top-of-the-line processor, water resistance, expandable storage and wireless charging, plus fun ways to create animated GIFs that belong to the Note 8 alone.
Everyone who saw me whip out the Note to write down numerous Starbucks orders on the lock screen, create cute animated GIFs of our silly photos, and take depth-effect portraits of wedding guests in their finest was immediately impressed. “Take our picture with the good camera,” one friend said.
Despite the Note 8’s undeniable excellence as an Android device, however, I’m split on whether or not it’s worth the hefty price, especially when it’s so similar to the single-lens Galaxy S8 and S8 Plus. Throw out the stylus, and your key benefit versus the S8 Plus is … portrait mode (which Samsung calls Live Focus). On its own, that’s not a very compelling reason to level up.
I need to also point out the Note 8’s most grating imperfection. Even if muscle memory takes over and you get used to it, and even if you use the hit-or-miss iris scanner instead, there’s no good reason it shouldn’t be in the center of the Note’s back like it is on so many other phones.
Feel good taking the Note 8 plunge if you’re using a Note 5. If you’ve never owned a Note but can truly make the S Pen part of your daily life, you won’t find any other phone that goes as far (though there are rumors that the next iPhone may support an unembedded Apple Pencil; we shall see).
If you’re contemplating the Note 8 for the second camera alone, I say wait to see how the LG V30, Apple’s next iPhone and Google’s next Pixel perform– they will certainly have dual cameras, too. At the end of the day, dreamy portraits and a pressure-sensitive pen are niceties, not necessities. And that’s what the Note 8 is: a beautiful splurge for people who want to do everything they can on an Android phone, or at least have the option.
Everyone but Note die-hards should wait until we see how those three rival phones fare. Once those devices arrive– likely by mid-October– we’ll revisit this review.
Read on for pricing and an in-depth look at the Galaxy Note 8’s key features. You’ll find a full specs list and a comparison with other top phones at the end.
Galaxy Note 8 price.
Preorders started Aug. 24, and the phone goes on sale Sept. 15 in the US, UK, South Korea and other select countries. It’ll roll out globally through October.
Until Sept. 30, Samsung will grant original Note 7 owners a discount on the Note 8 as an apology for the hassle of having returned your last phone. It’s only for US buyers so far and you can only get it through Samsung.com, not through your carrier.
All US buyers who preorder the phone will get a fast wireless charger and a 128GB microSD card or a Gear 360. This has nothing to do with being a Note 7 owner, it’s available to everyone. More details here.
You’ll be able to buy the phone through carriers, Samsung.com and other retailers. Samsung is also doing something different and immediately selling the Galaxy Note 8 unlocked rather than waiting months or weeks to offer an unlocked option.
In the US, you can pick up the Note 8 from Best Buy, Target and Walmart in addition to Samsung.com, where it sells unlocked for $930. The phone will also be available on US Cellular for the full retail price of $963 ($ 32 on 30-month plan) or for $900 prepaid.
Is the Note 8’s battery safe?
It’s too early to truly call the Note 8 a Note 7 redeemer until it’s survived weeks on the market without the phone overheating and catching fire. CNET’s multiple Note 7 review units remained incident-free even while an unusually high number of handsets around the world charred within just a few weeks of that phone’s release.
To keep the Note 8 safe, Samsung has:.
Instituted an eight-point battery safety check. Reduced battery size and capacity from 3,500 mAh to 3,300 mAh to leave more room in the phone’s cavity. Partnered with UL, an independent certification organization, to endorse the Note 8. Read more about Samsung’s efforts to keep the Note 8 battery from overheating.
For the record, the Galaxy S8 and S8 Plus batteries graduated from the same enhanced battery test without reports of widespread problems. If you’re wary, it doesn’t hurt to wait and watch.
Buyers of the Galaxy Note 7– who had to relinquish their flame-prone phones– and 2015’s Galaxy Note 5– until now, the “best” Note phone you could buy– will find the Note 8 to be the high-end handset they should have gotten last year, and then some.

Samsung Galaxy S7 Official TVC: Unpacking S7 for Fort Saskatchewan
Samsung has had its challenges lately. Let’s not forget there awesome products. I bring you today the unpacking of the Samsung Galaxy S7. This phone continues to amaze. Please stop by to view a live demo and experience a smartphone with incredible specifications. Here’s the Unpacking once again.
This recall of the Samsung Galaxy Note 7 has been bad news for everybody. I as well as everybody else has been disappointed with the events which have come upon the Note 7. Its bad for the consumer as well as the industry as a whole. Nobody likes to see the bad luck that has come with the launch of this exciting new phone. It’s really too bad but I for one know Samsung will fix this issue and come out stronger because of it. They make excellent products and the information I see is the problem was not with their phone but the battery which is built by and outside company.
So far the process for return has just begun and already some people are not happy with the way its going. I say patience is needed. Read whats happening below written by BOGDAN PETROVAN over at Android Authority below:
Consumer Reports is not happy with the way Samsung is handling the Note 7 recall
Following days of heavy rumors, Samsung has moved in to quell fears about the safety of the Note 7. The company assured that only a very small number of devices pose a risk and announced a worldwide recall program, “out of an abundance of caution.”
While some have praised Samsung for acting decisively in the interest of customers, not everyone is happy with the way the Note 7 recall program is being conducted.
Consumer Reports, a respected US-based consumer rights organization, said Samsung should have conducted an “official recall” together with the Consumer Product Safety Commission (CPSC), a US government body that oversees consumer products recalls.
Consumer Reports says that a CPSC-sanctioned recall would have made it illegal to sell the Galaxy Note 7 in the United States until the remediation of the problem. The consumer rights group said that it identified stores that still had the Note 7 on sale on Friday.
Perfect example of un -needed criticism just to make things worse. Samsung is doing what needs to be done and will correct everything while having replacements in short order.
Here some information for customers who have purchased Note 7s
Play it safe and swap your Note 7 because of the recall
Unless you think you know better than the people who built your Note 7, not getting it replaced is stupid.
I’m seeing a disturbing trend in forums and social media — people are saying they aren’t going to return their recalled Note 7 and get a new one. Don’t be that person.
Some of the reasons I’m seeing for not returning a Note 7 for a new one do make sense on some level. Nobody wants to take the time to set up a new phone, or people are worried that the replacement might not be as “perfect” as the one they are using now. I feel ya. I hate setting up phones and I know getting the perfect piece from a giant mass-produced manufacturing pile can be tricky sometimes. But other things I’m reading have me a little concerned.
“Only (insert you own made-up number here) phones have been found defective” or “I only use a (put the name of your favorite brand here) charger and everyone knows they are safe” and other assorted nonsense not only defies logic but shows how far people will reach to escape the obvious:You need to swap your phone under the recall.
Yes, only a small percentage of the phones that were boxed up and sent to stores or homes have burst. Odds say yours isn’t one of them. Odds also say that sex without birth control won’t necessarily lead to pregnancy, too. Both cases here, as well as countless others, like not wearing a seatbelt because I never had an accident or nobody needs to know Calculus are equally wrong. Some people do need to know Calculus, and some Note 7s are going to explode in a ball of dragon fire.
Read this if you don’t want to wait for your replacement which is a couple weeks away. Written by Russell Holly over at AndroidCentral below:
Best phone to buy if you’re returning a Galaxy Note 7
What should I get if I’m returning a Galaxy Note 7?
It’s a tough question, but one a lot of people are asking themselves right now. Samsung’s Galaxy Note 7 recall is coupled with some particularly violent photos of phones in various stages of burning and melting, which is the last thing you want with a brand new version of that phone in your pocket. Samsung has identified 35 cases of phone explosion across the over a million that have been sold so far, but most folks who bought a Note 7 are still well within their return window. If you decide to return your Note 7 instead of waiting for an recall exchange from Samsung, here’s a few suggestions for what your next phone should be!
Telus Store Fort Saskatchewan Note 6 News & Rumors
Anticipation is starting to build around the Note 6 and what advances it will boast! Here is something interesting from John Dye at Android Authority below:
Samsung just unveiled a 10nm 6GB RAM chip that may arrive on the Note 6
Yesterday Samsung showcased a 6GB RAM chip at a Mobile Solutions Form event in Shenzhen, China. While 6GB of RAM isn’t a totally new thing for smartphones, it’s definitely a spec that is far from mainstream, and what puts this chip above existing models is that it’s packed into a tiny 10nm form.
Although nothing has been confirmed by Samsung, some are theorizing that this 10nm 6GB LPDDR4 could power the Samsung Galaxy Note 6. Advances in processors and RAM chips are currently crucial to the evolution of mobile devices, because lithium ion battery technology is essentially at a standstill. While chips are still advancing in relative accordance with Moore’s Law, we need some kind of substantial battery breakthrough to be able to store power in a smaller, cost-efficient manner. Ergo, currently the best way to keep battery life in stride with more demanding components is to make high power chips smaller and more efficient. Not only does that leave more room in the device to be devoted to the battery, but it also assures that power will be used more efficiently.
Here is information about Release Date and Specs again from Android Authority TeamAA
Samsung Galaxy Note 6 rumor roundup: specs, release date, features and more
The Samsung Galaxy S7 and S7 Edge are all the hype right now, but we know many of you believe the Note series is the true Samsung flagship every year. And rightfully so, Note phones usually come later in the year, boasting superior specs, improved functionality, larger batteries and more.
As we wrap up all the Galaxy S7 coverage our sights turn to the larger side of things. What will the Samsung Galaxy Note 6 have to offer? In this post we try to create a one-stop shop for all your Samsung Galaxy Note 6 leaks and rumors. Want to learn more? Let’s dig in.
This article will continue to be updated as more details on the Samsung Galaxy Note 6 emerge, so bookmark this page if you want to stay informed!
Details are scarce but a few leaks are giving us a look at what the Galaxy Note 6 may pack. According to the International Business Times, the upcoming phone is to feature a massive 5.8-inch screen with a QHD (2560×1440) display. What’s interesting is that this time Sammy might be doing away with the Diamond Pixels and instead has opt for a slimmer RGB matrix AMOLED panel.
Rumors of pressure sensitivity are also going around. This means the Samsung Galaxy Note 6 may feature something similar to Apple’s 3D Touch. The Samsung Galaxy Note series is known for its digital pen input features, so I would assume any new application of pressure sensitivity would somehow be linked to the S-Pen.
Great stuff makes me excited to get this Big Boy in my hands! Read the rest here: Telus Store Fort Saskatchewan Note 6 News & Rumors

Are you Tired of your Existing Emojis on your Android Device?
Well changes are coming where Google will be releasing new Emojis that look a lot more like people. Check out the recent article by Android Central below which details exactly what Google is doing.
Android is finally making its emoji look like people
We still don’t know Android N‘s eventual food-related name, but we are slowly learning more about its extensive feature set.
In the second Developer Preview issued to a variety of Nexus devices today, Google announced that with N it will support Emoji Unicode 9 standard, which includes a number of new pictorials. Google also plans support for skin tone variations, a feature that iOS users have been enjoying for some time.
But perhaps the most interesting change is that Google is moving away from its often-reviled cartoon emoji in favor of a “more human-looking design,” according to a post on the company’s developer blog.
The Unicode Consortium, the organization that decides on which emoji will be added to each release, plans to make Unicode 9.0 available sometime in June 2016, well before Android N becomes publicly available. New glyphs include “Face Palm,” “Bacon,” and “Mother Christmas,” though not every character will likely be included in the Android N update.
Looks pretty good definitely a step up with what we have been using to date. 9To5 Google had another great post letting us know what Samsung has coming our way with regards to emoji changes below.
Samsung’s take on emoji is much more rounded and in-line with Apple’s, Whatsapp’s, and countless industry others. In comparison, Google uses a much more bulbous-looking character on Android and in Hangouts on the web. The last time Samsung updated their emoji was with the launch of 2013’s Galaxy S5 with 4.4.2 KitKat.
Please go back to their post for the full post. These changes are coming we just have to be a little patient. For more information stop by the Telus Authorized Dealer Store for more detailed information.
