The Galaxy Note 9 is the best smartphone on the market, says Consumer Reports. In its test, the consumer association particularly appreciated the autonomy of the smartphone, its huge OLED screen, its double variable aperture photo sensor and its new S-Pen. Pending the test of the iPhone XS / XS Max, it is the best proposal on the market, says Consumer Reports.
“Thanks to its big battery and other features, the Galaxy Note 9 is the best smartphone we’ve tested”, announces the association. In April 2018, Consumer Reports already considered the Galaxy S9 as the best smartphone on the market, ahead of Apple’s iPhone X. Each year, Consumer Reports praises products designed by Samsung.

Talking about the exceptional autonomy of the phablet, during testing, the phone held up to 29 hours without needing to be recharged. “All users will be able to spend a whole day without having to charge their smartphone” says Richard Fisco, smartphone test manager at Consumer Reports. To test the battery of a device, Consumer Reports leaves the smartphone in the hands of a robot, programmed to put its autonomy to the test.
After several drop tests, it turned out that the Galaxy Note 9 is much stronger than its predecessor, the Galaxy Note 8. Unsurprisingly, Consumer Reports has also fallen under the charms of the AMOLED infinity display of the Note 9. “Samsung’s technology produces deep blacks,” says the association. They added that the Galaxy Note 9 is equipped with the most innovative screen on the market .
Similarly, Note 9’s dual variable aperture sensor is among the best cameras of the year, the test adds. Consumer Reports highlights “its fast autofocus” and its “bokeh mode that works well” . This is shared by the experts at DxoMark, who consider Note 9 as the 3rd best photophone of the year . “The new S-Pen makes using a smartphone of this size even more intuitive and easy,” says Consumer Reports. The association really appreciated the features of the bluetooth stylus.
Note 9 will face stiff competition from the iPhone XS / XS Max, said Consumer Reports, which has not yet tested the new iPhone. Will the iPhone XS dethrone the latest Samsung flagship? What is your opinion?
