Make the Note 9's battery prowess 6000 mAh with Mophie's Juice Pack case

Make the Note 9's battery prowess 6000 mAh with Mophie's Juice Pack case

2 monthes ago   |   By Phone Arena

The Galaxy Note 9 is shaping up to have a better battery life than its predecessor, based solely on the 20% increase in mAh capacity, as well as the more frugal, second-gen 10nm chipset. Samsung still advertises it as an "all-day battery" phone, though, which is not what you'd expect from a 4000 mAh pack, but, hopefully, it means a day with heavy usage.
That's the curse of modern smartphones with QHD+ display resolutions, so the news from Mophie that it will be releasing its acclaimed Juice Pack battery case for the Note 9, is very welcome. Coming this fall, ...

Best Note 9 deals and gifts by Best Buy, Samsung, Verizon and Sam's Club

2 monthes ago   |   By Phone Arena

Don't fret about the Galaxy Note 9 pricing, as it's basically a few tens over the Note 8, but offers so much more to early adopters. For anyone else willing to wait, the Note 8 also saw the fastest depreciation of all major handsets, dropping to its current $720 tag, and second-hand price south of $500. That leaves hope for the future of the S Pen aficionado, but if you are bent on getting the latest and greatest, here's where you can grab one from in the US.
The Galaxy Note 9 will be available both directly from Samsung unlocked, or on carriers like Verizon, AT&T, Sprint, ...

Sam's Club battles Best Buy for the top deal on a Galaxy Note 9

2 monthes ago   |   By Phone Arena

While Costco is taking a pass on a Note 9 deal this time, another membership discounter swooped in to take its place. Yes, we are talking about Sam's Club which will give you a $200 gift card to stack on top of whatever other promos you may take on Samsung's newest flagship. The deal is actually better than Best Buy's instant $200 off if you buy via Sprint, as Sprint doesn't have Verizon or AT&T's BOGO offers.
Thus, if you get, say, two Verizon Note 9's for the price of one, you can tack on the up to $299 worth of Samsung gifts, plus the $200 Sam's Club gift ...

How does Samsung's S Pen work so damn well?

How does Samsung's S Pen work so damn well?

2 monthes ago   |   By Android Central

The S Pen is part of the Galaxy Note and integrated through both hardware and software.
The Galaxy Note isn't just a big phone. It's Samsung's cream of the crop and always ships with the best hardware and software Samsung has to offer, and the Galaxy Note 9 looks to be no exception. The Note is the Galaxy phone for people who want it all, or as close to "it all" as they can get. Part of that - a big part for many - is the S Pen.
Forget the idea that "nobody wants to use a stylus" because that's clearly incorrect. A lot of users want to use some sort of pen on their go-to device, and we've...

It happened just like the leaks told us. Fortnite for Android is going to be a Samsung exclusive at launch , but things aren't as bad as we thought. First of all, the Galaxy Note 9 isn't the only Samsung device that can run the game.
Furthermore, the exclusivity period isn't as long as we thought. Rather than 30 or 120 days, of waiting, you'll only have to wait for a few days to try the beta on your current Android device, as long as it supports it.

Will a leftover Galaxy Note 8 screen protector work on the Galaxy Note 9?

2 monthes ago   |   By Android Central

Have a spare Note 8 screen protector lying around? Don't throw it away quite yet!
Although the Galaxy Note 8 from last year is a more than powerful Android phone in 2018, the all-new Note 9 is still worth the upgrade thanks to its Bluetooth-equipped S Pen, AI camera features, and ginormous battery.
The Note 9 should feel like a very familiar phone for Note 8 owners, and while a radical new design would have been fun to have, the similarities between the two devices might actually work out in your favor - specifically when it comes to screen protectors.
If you bought a screen protector for...
