Note the large selection of powder
Samsung Note 9 recently held a pre-order event in Taiwan. According to the refund information from the telecom industry, Note 9, the most expensive Note phone ever, the quotas of various system operators are largely wiped out. This shows that the Note series is in Taiwan. The extent to which consumers are welcome.
If you like the Note-series or want to try it out, I believe you have already learned some specifications, functions and performance from mobile phones from our previous current and live reports. But maybe you have this question: Note 9 is the best model I know, but Note 8 seems to be cheaper, and the two phones are similar, should I buy Note 8 or Note 9? Today's article, Xiao Bian is coming to help you analyze the differences between the two machines, so that everyone is a small reference when buying.
First, the power
For heavy users, strength and endurance are one of the most important reference factors for selecting a mobile phone. Although the large screen may be able to charge a larger capacity due to the volume ratio, Note 8 was originally affected by the Note 7 event, keeping the built-in battery capacity, only 3300 mAh, PCMark battery life. Most measurements dropped in about 9 hours while note 9 increased the battery capacity to 4000 mAh, 21% more than in note 8, with the battery life of PCMark measured to almost 10 hours and a half, even foreign YouTuber will include Note 9 Several flagship telephones have measured the life of the battery and have strongest conclusion drawn from the ability of Note 9.

Second, S Pen
The soul of the Note-series is located on the S Pen, and when it comes to the S Pen of Note 9, it is actually continued from note 8, including 4096-step pressure, IP68 waterproof and dust-proof, and of course it is very bad embarrassing. Pressing on the pen tip, but one of the biggest evolutions of note 9 is also on the S Pen.
Note 9 Add the low-power Bluetooth connection function to the S Pen for the first time. You can control the mobile phone to take photos or operate the remote presentation within 10 meters of the Bluetooth connection by pressing the pen button on the S Pen. You can also control the progress of playback while listening to music or watching a movie and when the screen is locked, simply pull the S Pen and press the pen button to unlock the phone and open the preset app (the default setting is the camera). Very practical.
Third, the camera
In the camera section, Note 8 and Note 9 have no difference in camera pixels Both cameras are equipped with a 12-megapixel main camera with two lenses, the standard and 2X telephoto settings are used The camera's front and also support OIS at the back. Hand shake, the difference does not seem big, but apart from the S9 F1.5 / F2.4 smart dual aperture design, the 9 in the camera section is compared with the F1.7 single aperture value of note 8 more flexible in image .
Note 9 also added the "Scene Wisdom Recognition" feature for the first time, which automatically recognizes 20 scenes and improves the hue, saturation, and white balance of photos during photo shooting. This function is also not available in note 8.
Fourth, the memory capacity
In the memory capacity section, Note 8, Taiwan only has a 6 GB + 64 GB version, but Note 9 has 6 GB + 128 GB and 8 GB + 512 GB. The Note 9 take-off is 128 GB The capacity is actually enough, 512 GB. The version can basically use the mobile phone as a portable hard drive, which is a big blessing for those who want to watch movies on their mobile phones.
However, the memory card can also be expanded both in Note 8 and in Note 9. If you think the built-in capacity is 64 GB, it is sufficient to add a memory card, but it is important to note that both phones use three card slots. If you insert a memory card, you can only insert a single SIM card and you can not double-standby the dual-standby card.
Five, processor performance
As usual, Samsung & # 39; s Note 9 launched in Taiwan uses Samsung's proprietary Exynos 9810 processor. It is unfortunate that Samsung does not release the Qualcomm S845 processor version in Taiwan, but Exynos 9810 differs from the Note 8 Exynos 8895 processor. In addition to the second generation 10nm process, the CPU / GPU performance has also improved significantly. If you use the same version (7.1.0) of the rabbit to perform the functional test, the distance between Comment 8 and Comment 9 is about 40,000 points, Note 9 An improvement of about 20% relative to the overall performance of note 8 .
Six, the price
In addition to the specifications and characteristics of the mobile phone itself, it is assumed that the starting costs of the two machines are a potential concern for buyers. Let me say, note 9, it has 6GB + 128GB and 8GB + 512GB storage capacity specifications, the price is 30,900 yuan and 38,900 yuan respectively, which has become the most expensive mobile phone in the Note series.
The other side of note 8 is the flagship of Samsung last year. After a year, the current market price of the new machine (August 2018) is about 21,800 yuan. Compared to the 29,900 yuan it just mentioned, the proposed price did not decrease much; Compared with 9 6 GB + 128 GB, the difference between the two is 9,100 yuan, and the difference in the above five points is not worth more than 9,000 yuan.
1. Note 9 has a larger battery and higher endurance (4000 mAh vs. 3300 mAh)
2. Note 9 & # 39; s Pen adds Bluetooth remote control
3. Note 9 The camera supports dual aperture and scene smart recognition.
4. Note 9 Larger storage space (twice as large as in note 8)
5. Note 9 Performance improvement 20%
These values are not worth nine thousand? Everyone has a ruler in their hearts, but what is certain is that they are all good machines. Whether you buy the previous generation or future generations, I believe the fans will be satisfied.
