Samung Galaxy Note 9: Hands-on!

The smaller 42mm version of the Samsung Galaxy Watch will be available in black silver and rose gold when it launches in October

Epic's Tim Sweeney announced at the Samsung Note 9 reveal event that the Android beta for the popular Battle Royale game is now live to all Galaxy users, and that it'll be coming to all Android devices later this week.

Firstly, the Note 9 ships with a new and improved S Pen, which comes with Bluetooth LE (Low Energy) baked-in for the first time.

Being a big phone release from the biggest Android manufacturer, the Note 9 will have plenty of third-party accessories like screen protectors, rugged cases and auto mounts for your employees to use to keep the phone itself safe.

Samsung wisely integrated its SmartThings hub into the Galaxy Home.

But everybody else is looking at that £899 SIM-free price and £1,200-plus contract deals - and that's just for the entry-level model - and thinking there's no way they'll be splashing out on the Note 9 any time soon.

Just by using a single button, you can automatically enter a party of two purely based on previous reservations.

Straight out of the box the first thing that grabs you about the Samsung Galaxy Watch is that, more than ever before, this smartwatch looks like a real watch. There's an upgraded phone with 512GB of storage and 8GB of RAM.

The Note 9 will also feature the latest and greatest LTE and Wi-Fi radios.

Samsung Galaxy Home release date: When can we get our hands on it?

Samsung, that maintained a comfortable lead in the second quarter this year with 20.9 per cent global market share, has now created flutters in Apples camp with unveiling its flagship Galaxy Note 9.

Then there's the S-Pen.

First and foremost, you might notice that despite featuring a near-identical design, the dimensions of the Note 9 are actually different than those of the Note 8. All you need to do is plug it in with an HDMI adaptor. For a phone, that is just insane. This is said to be more efficient than the passive cooling on the on the Note 8. There is also support for fast wireless charging, as well as regular USB-C fast charging. The 6GB/256GB SKU sells for $999.99, and the 8GB/512GB models go for $1,249.99. It's a lot of money for a phone. Borrowing from the iPhone's playbook, the Note 9 will have the same US price regardless of carrier.

KitGuru says: Some may be disappointed by the lack of major upgrades, but taken on its own, the Note 9 is still nothing short of a modern-day monster. Again, I didn't have chance to check the limits of functionality and compatibility with iOS on the hands-on session, so again it will be worth holding off for T3's full Galaxy Watch review.

How to Get the Best Price On a Samsung Galaxy Note 9
The Wi-Fi-only version of the Series 3 Apple Watch started at $329 whereas the cellular + Wi-Fi version cost $399. Now, if you fit in the group for which all of that applies, you can pick up a fantastic phone for a great price.
