Samsung Galaxy S9 Plus vs Galaxy Note 8

Samsung Galaxy S9 Plus vs Galaxy Note 8

– [Saf] Hey, what's up, YouTube, Saf here on SuperSaf TV And in this video we're going to be looking at the key differences between the Samsung Galaxy S9+, and the Samsung Galaxy Note8

So, we've got the bigger devices from Samsung here, and hopefully this comparison will help you decide which one to go for Now, starting off with the build and design, we've got a very similar build and design, here, there's a metal frame, with curved, symmetrical, glass panels on the front and back Now, this is a very unique design with all of those curves, and actually makes the larger devices a little bit easier to hold Both devices are also IP68 water and dust resistant, so getting a bit of a splash on them is not going to be a problem The combination of metal and glass also make these devices look and feel very premium, but the Samsung Galaxy S9+ is slightly smaller compared to the Note8, both in terms of the height and width, although it's the same thickness

The S9+ also has more curved edges, so this actually makes it a little bit more comfortable to hold compared to the squared edges of the Note8 Now, there's not too much of a difference in terms of the weight The S9+ is slightly smaller because it has a slightly smaller display, 62 inches versus 63 inches on the Note8

Now, both these displays are what Samsung is calling Infinity Displays, and that's because they have minimal bezels, although the S9+ actually has slightly smaller bezels compared to the Samsung Galaxy Note8 Both of these have an 185 by nine aspect ratio, with quad HD resolution, and they're both super AMOLED displays, which means these are some of the best in the market right now, with deep blacks and very vibrant colors Now, with the S9+, you can use it more in horizontal mode, so, even the menu, as well as the home screen will switch to horizontal mode, and that is because Samsung is saying more people are using their devices in landscape to consume content This is something that's not currently available on the Note8

Whether or not it's going to be available later on, I'm not too sure Now, looking at the internals, the Note8 comes with either the Qualcomm Snapdragon 835 processor, or Samsung's Exynos 8895 This will vary depending on your region, and these are pretty powerful processors, but they are last year's processors The Samsung Galaxy S9+ now comes with either the Qualcomm Snapdragon 845 processor, or Samsung's Exynos 9810 So you're going to be getting improvements here, we know that the Qualcomm Snapdragon 845 is 30% more faster in terms of the graphics performance, and also 30% more efficient

Now, we can obviously do some more detail, side-by-side speed test, SuperSaf style, when we've got the retail version of the S9+ in hand, but generally-speaking, the S9+ with the new internals, is going to be the faster device Now, both devices actually come with six gigabytes of RAM, so that's plenty, and they should be great for multitasking I've been using the Note8 for quite some time, and it's been pretty good for multitasking, and for storage, the Note8 comes with a base storage of 64 gigabytes The S9+ actually comes with a base storage of 128 gigabytes, so there's another improvement, here Now, the good thing is you can expand the storage on both of these with the MicroSD card slot, so, you're not going to be stuck with the storage that you get with the device

Now, let's move on to the cameras This is where thing get really interesting With the Samsung Galaxy Note8, you've got a dual 12 megapixel camera setup The primary is a wide-angle camera with an F17 aperture

And then we've got a telephoto camera with an F24 aperture, and that's going to give you optical zoom I've been using the Note8's camera for quite some time now, and it's a very good camera, overall Definitely one of the best of last year But we have an improvement here, on the S9+

We've still got a dual camera setup, with one telephoto which has an F24 aperture, but for the primary, wide-angle camera, things get very, very interesting The S9+ has a dual-aperture camera There's F15, which is the widest aperture on any smartphone right now, and it's going to allow 28% more light compared to the S8's last year

And then you've also got F24, and this is actually a mechanical change You can actually see this change if you look up close, and it's absolutely insane that we've got this on a smartphone right now And the way this is going to work, is that if it notices that you're in anything above 100 Lux of light, then it's going to switch to the F24 aperture, and that's go get more things in focus and get a more pleasing shot in good light

Now, in my initial testing of this, it looks very, very promising I'll obviously be doing a SuperSaf style camera comparison between these two If you want to see that first, then make sure you have subscribed and switch on notifications Now, because of the secondary camera on both devices, we do have live focus, which is a portrait mode This is going to blur the background, and the good thing is you can edit the blur after the fact on both devices

And it's also going to take two shots, one wide angle as well as one telephoto, so you've always got that wide-angle shot, if needed Now, moving on to video, both devices can film at 4K, but we've got thirty frames per second on the Note8 On the S9+, we've got up to sixty frames a second Not only that, we've also got Super Slow Mo So this is 720p, up to 960 frames a second

Now, this is just a short burst, like we had on the Sony devices last year, but the problem with the Sony devices last year was that you'd have to press it at the exact time when you wanted that slow motion, and more often than not, you'd just end up missing that shot The good thing with the Super Slow Mo on the S9+ is that you've got automatic motion detection, so this is going to allow you to put a square around where it needs to look for motion, you can start recording, and whenever it does detect motion, in that square, that's when it's going to start recording, and you can get some really impressive results It's also going to then add music to your slow motion automatically, it's going to allow you to change those slow motions to GIFs, and you can also use those slow motions as live wallpapers Now, for the front-facing camera we've got eight megapixels on both, with an F17 aperture, as well as auto-focus

Now, although we've got very similar, or the same hardware, we've got some improvements in terms of software And with the S9+, you also have Selfie focus This is basically a portrait mode from the front-facing camera, it's something that we've seen on the iPhone X as well as the Google Pixel 2 In my brief testing, it did seem to perform quite well Now, we do have selective focus from the front-facing camera on the Note8, but in my experience, it hasn't worked too well

It'd be interesting to see how much the Selfie focus has improved on this on the S9+ Now, in terms of software, both of these are running Android My Note8 is still on Android version 711

The Oreo update has not yet come It's supposed to be coming soon, but with the S9+ it is going to come with Android Oreo out of the box, so you are going to get that advantage there, and both of these have Samsung's Experience again, on top The S9+, being the new device, as well, I'd expect it to get updates quicker compared to the Note8 going forward, and when it comes to audio, the good news is, both of these have a 35 millimeter headphone jack As you guys know, this is something we're seeing much less of these days, so it's great that Samsung have still included this, and with the Note8 you've got a single bottom-firing speaker

This is okay, but it cane be covered easily, and it's not great compared to stereo speakers, which the Samsung Galaxy S9+ now has Now, these speakers are tuned by AKG, we've got one in the earpiece, and one bottom-firing And they're one point four times louder compared to the S8 last year, and they also incorporate Dolby Atmos So you are going to be getting a much more massive experience on the S9+, and you can switch the Dolby Atmos on when you like, it's a toggle in the notifications Now, looking at the additional features

First thing's first, fingerprint scanner On the Note8, as yo guys know, it's not in an ideal position, it's right up there near the cameras, and you do have to reach for it, which is quite difficult on the larger device With the Samsung Galaxy S9+, it's below the cameras, in the middle, and it's much more accessible, and I'm glad that Samsung have made this change Yes, we don't have a fingerprint scanner in the display as yet, and that might come for the Samsung Galaxy Note9, but having it in a much more accessible position at the back is definitely a plus Both devices also have an Iris Scanner, as well as Facial Recognition, but with the S9+, you have Intelligent Scan, and that's basically a combination of using the Iris Scanner as well as Facial Recognition

This is going to make things more secure, and it's nice to have this in addition to everything else that we have The Samsung Galaxy Note8 does, however, have something that not many other devices have, and that is the S Pen This has mixed opinions, some people like it, some people don't I personally do find it quite useful Especially useful if you're somebody who signs documents on the go on things, and there's lots of other features that it does include, as well

I've covered those in my Samsung Galaxy Note8 review, which you can check out in the comments Now, the S9+ does come with a new feature, which is not available on the Note8, and that is AR Emoji Think of this as Samsung's answer to Apple's Animoji Now, what this actually does is it scans your face, and it creates a character based on your appearance I did test this out, it didn't do a great job, initially

I guess I have to make some more tweaks, because of my beard, but it basically looks at a hundred features on your face and it tries to give the AR Emoji realistic expressions, and then you can use these in things like WhatsApp and Facebook Messenger Now, personally speaking, I wasn't a huge fan of Animoji on the iPhone X, and I can't really see myself using AR Emoji too much on the S9+, but it might be something that you're into Now, let's move on to Bixby So, Bixby is Samsung's AI assistant, which is present on both the Note8 as well as the S9+, but we've got some improvements on the S9+, especially in terms of vision We've got live translate, within Bixby vision

This is going to allow you to point your camera at, say, a menu, or something, and translate that for you live there and then There's also other improvements You're going to be able to point your camera at food and it's going to give you information about that food, such as how many calories it has Whether or not these Bixby updates are going to come onto the Note8, this is still a bit of a question mark They may or may not

Now, looking at the batteries, the S9+ actually has a slightly larger battery compared to the Note8 We've got 3300 mAh on the Note8, 3500 on the S9+ Now, the Note8, I have been using that for the past few months, and it's got okay battery life I wouldn't say it's great With the S9+, because of the slightly bigger battery, as well as the new processors, I'd expect it to be more efficient, and you should be getting better battery life from the S9+

The great thing is that both devices do support fast charging, as well as fast wireless charging, so this is great whenever you need a quick top off Now finally, looking at the pricing, the S9+ is actually coming in at the same price that the Note8 was introduced at last year This is high compared to the S8+, but we do have the additional features this year, and with the Note8, because it has been out for a few months, now, you can expect to pay a little bit less compared to when it was released Now, pricing will obviously vary from place to place, and after the S9+ is available, then I would expect the Note8 to drop even further In terms of availability, the Note8 is available to buy right now

With the S9+ you can pre-order it right now, and it is going to be available from the 16th of March However, if you do pre-order early, then you should be getting the device earlier So, there we have it, guys, the Samsung Galaxy S9+ versus the Samsung Galaxy Note8 Some interesting devices, and some interesting improvements here, on the S9+, too Obviously the S9+, being the new device, has the new features such as the dual aperture as well as the newer processors, but with the Note8 we have the S Pen, and because it is an older device, it is going to be dropping in price, so if you are on a budget, then the Note8 might be the option to go for

As I've said before, it was definitely one of the best devices of 2017, and it still holds up right now That's what I think, anyway, what do you guys think, and what do you guys think of the S9+? Definitely drop me a comment below and let me know I hope you enjoyed this video and found what you saw, if you did, then please do hit that thumbs up on for me, it really does help me out And if you haven't already, then be sure to subscribe and switch on notifications As soon as the retail version of the S9+ is in hand we'll be doing lots and lots of videos
