They say that when something really works you will hardly even notice it. When everything else in the world right now is making your life hard – riding petrol prices, land insecurity, your mother-in-laws impending visit – your tech should not even consciously feature. Instead great tech should be a seamless extension of your life.
The Galaxy Note 9 is all that and a magic S-pen. Sure, it’s so big it can jump out of your pocket at any given moment but that massive screen is all the better to see your social media with. It is a magnificent phone that is as slick as it is beautiful and delivers on all levels.
Who knew it was possible for a phone battery to last all day – outside the vestibule of the ever-sturdy Nokia? Boasting the biggest – and most stable – battery in a Samsung to date, I have punished this phone with hours of work, social media, voice recording, video watching and photo taking and it would still have 6% battery when dawn breaks the next day. Only to charge right up again in a “hot minute.”
