Galaxy S9+ model and by 21% when it comes to Galaxy Note 8. Samsung promises a whole day of work and I must admit that it is not far from truth. The smartphone was used during the IFA convention 2018 in Berlin as a default work tool – for taking photos of stands and during press conferences. We were recording videos and sharing them in social media, writing texts, making calls, texting and used it as a hot-spot. During this intensive time Note proved to be a reliable tool, which lasted for a whole day. When we are using the smartphone less intensively, we can easily charge it every second day – and maybe even less often… Detailed measurements in different scenarios look equally good:
- lifespan with the display on (YouTube, Wi-Fi module active, 50% brightness) - 16 hours,
- an hour of video streaming (Chrome, active Wi-Fi module, 50% brightness) - 9% of battery lost,
- an hour of playing videos from the phone’s memory (airplane mode, 50% brightness) - 6%,
- half an hour of using online navigation - 6-7% of battery lost,
- half an hour of playing Real Racing 3 - 10%,
- PC Mark battery test result – 11 hours and 16 minutes,
- 8 hours in the standby mode - 4%.
How long does it take to charge 4000 mAh cell? Samsung uses a charger with the Adaptive Fast Charging technology. The time needed to charge the cell to 100% is 1 hour and 50 minutes. After 15 minutes the cell is filled to 17%, after 30 minutes – it shows 38%. After an hour the battery level is on 70%.
Note 9 is basically an enhanced Galaxy S9+, enriched with a stylus. If you think that S-Pen is necessary in an everyday usage, then the Note series – and its newest representative – is a great choice. If not, Galaxy S9 or S9+ will suffice. And if you already have the previous Note version, than switching from eight to nine will not be a good idea. The smartphone itself is not so different from the predecessor and you will not feel a major difference in efficiency or usage – it basically has a bigger display, more capacious battery, more memory and additional stylus functions.
