Samsung Galaxy Note 9 is worth the $ 1000 price tag

Samsung Galaxy Note 9 has almost all features you can wish for on an Android phone. With specifications such as a 6.4-inch super AMOLED display, S Pen, dual-aperture camera, 128GB of storage space, 6GB of RAM and more, the $ 1000 price is more justified for the note than iPhone X. Business Insider tech journalists Antonio Villas-Boas and Avery Hartmans share their thoughts about Samsung's latest premium phone. The following is a transcript of the video.

Avery Hartmans: I've been very impressed with Galaxy Note 9 so far. My favorite Android phone is Google Pixel 2. But I've been very impressed with it for a few different reasons. I think it's a very powerful phone. If this was your only device, you did not have a laptop, you did not have a tablet, you only had this, you would be fine.

Antonio Villas-Boas: I mean the combination of the big screen and pen as well, it just makes me feel more comfortable doing things on the phone that I would normally save like a computer or laptop. So talking about the screen, this is a Samsung screen. Which means it's the best in business.

Avery Hartmans: I never really understood the need to have a big OLED screen, I was like, ah, it's good I do not need it before I started using this. And I was like, wow, this screen is amazing. Watching videos on this thing is unreal. I did not really think on top and bottom, I thought it was good. I was glad that Samsung did not have a hack on this phone.

Antonio Villas-Boas: With regard to the size of the phone, a large phone is obvious. It's not for everyone, right? But yes, it's not a single phone.

Avery Hartmans: But I thought it was relatively easy to use. It's not manageable for people with smaller hands, I think.

Antonio Villas-Boas: I'm actually on note 9 and its massive screen, I actually use Android multitasking stuff and I was like, wow, as I watch a YouTube video while talking to people. And I was like, wow, this works. And I have an S Pen and it's like, wow, it works very well. It does two things at once. I do two things at the same time.

Avery Hartmans: Do you find yourself using the Bixby button and find yourself with Bixby at all?

Antonio Villas-Boas: I accidentally hit the Bixby button while watching a YouTube video and am frustrated that the Bixby button is there.

Avery Hartmans: What about the camera?

Antonio Villas-Boas: Yes, I tried it against Google Pixel 2. And I was very impressed. I think this phone actually, as, competing with Pixel 2. It's actually the closest competitor of the Pixel 2 camera.

Avery Hartmans: Two of the really enduring features of this camera, in my opinion, are the zoom, which I really was impressed with. It's very nice to have when you need it. And this is like the best zoom I've seen on a new smartphone. The other thing I think is very cool is dual-aperture. And I notice that when you took pictures in low light, that's what did the competition go out.

Antonio Villas-Boas: Yes, right?

Avery Hartmans: The type of the first thought I had about this phone was, it could fit two types of people very well. One of them is, you know, a person who has a very crazy job, is a bit on the road a lot and needs a lot, a very powerful phone. Need a lot of battery life, you know, a lot of storage. But it would also be very good for anyone who wants this to be, all over the world. Samsung updated the stylus a bit this year. And it can now work as a remote control. So there's a button on the pen, you can press it. And it will take a picture from a distance, it can put you through a PowerPoint presentation. And I think it's very cool.

Antonio Villas-Boas: I think it's cool. I do not know how many people will use it. I do not think it's like, oh my God, buy this phone because of this feature, kind of thing, do you know?

Avery Hartmans: What about the storage?

Antonio Villas-Boas: The base model comes with, I think it's 1

28 gigabytes. And then it can go up to 512 gigabytes inside this phone, which is more than the MacBook Pro has. And if you want, you can add another 512 gigabytes of storage through the microSD slot.

Avery Hartmans: There is a total of terabyte storage space.

Antonio Villas-Boas: It's a terabyte storage space. That's more than most computers come with.

Avery Hartmans: So one of the really cool features of Galaxy Note 9 is this thing that Samsung calls DeX, which lets you use the phone as a computer in the first place.

Antonio Villas-Boas: DeX looks pretty cool. Samsung presented this little dongle that you connect to the phone's USB-C connector, and then you can connect it to HDMI to a screen. And you basically have a desktop operating system. It looks like windows, maybe a bit. I have not tried it yet. I think it can be cool. As you expect, you know, it's an advanced Android phone. It comes with USB-C. It also comes with a quick charger as well. Headphone jack. Headphone jack. Please. It has a little blow up. But honestly, it's not really that bad. One thing that came as I do not like at all is the Facebook app. And I can not delete it from this phone. I guess one thing I'm not afraid of is the price tag. Thousand dollars. I still think a ticket on four shapes for a smartphone is a bit much. But I think it gives much more meaning on Galaxy Note 9 than it does for iPhone X. It has more functionality. You can do more on it and more with it.

Avery Hartmans: Right. I think spending a thousand dollars on this is much more justified. I think it makes me feel much more productive. I think I can get much more done at once. If I was ready to switch from an iPhone, I would strongly rate this. Before I Was Just – Pixel was the only other option I would rate. Now this is in operation. I would give it a try.

Antonio Villas-Boas: Great phone. Fully recommend it. Would buy if I had more money.

Avery Hartmans: Sort of in line with I want to say as Siri.

Antonio Villas-Boas: About hm. Yes, no better, no worse. Yes, it's not like a compliment, but it's not an insult either. Or, that's what I do not know.
