Samsung Note 9, the review. I put aside my iPhone X to spend uninterrupted days with the new Samsung Galaxy Note 9. Yes, it’s a big (6.4-inch), heavy (over 200 grams) phone. And, yet, I love it. It’s got the power, the screen and that very nifty S Pen. If you’re an Android, fan read this review and then you may want to start saving up your pennies, dimes and one hundred-dollar bills.
