For anyone who likes their phones on the larger size, the Samsung Galaxy Note 9 stands apart. It manages to cram the high-end features you would want into a still surprisingly svelte package.
Of course, the larger size of the phone affords a massive display at 6.4 inches - perfect for watching video. The Note 9's OLED display, with pin-sharp 2,960 x 1,440 resolution, is stunning. It has perfect black reproduction and vibrant and punchy colours. The bezels are razor thin, too, and there's no notch in sight.
The camera, which is new for the Note series, takes the best parts of the Galaxy S9 Plus. That means it now has a 12-megapixel camera with a variable aperture. This lets the camera adjust to the light conditions, so when it's dark it lets in more light for sharper shots in tough conditions. This works alongside a second 12-megapixel camera that allows for 2x zoom. These combine to take some fantastic shots.
One of the biggest improvements over the previous Note 8 is the battery capacity. It's now increased to 4,000mAh (up from 3,400mAh) meaning you no longer have to worry about getting through the day on a single charge. Round that all off with the productivity powerhouse S Pen and the Note 9 is one of the best big phones going.
