Galaxy Note 9 vs Galaxy Note 5: Worth the Upgrade?

Galaxy Note 5 vs Galaxy Note 9: Camera

Another area where Samsung has improved by leaps and bounds is the camera. They've always had some of the best cameras on the market, but that really took off in 2017.

The Note 5 has a 16 Megapixel camera and the Note 9 is only 12 Megapixels, that doesn't matter though. It's a 12 DualPixel sensor that uses 95% of the pixels to have a laser-fast autofocus, and it captures more light faster. Resulting in crisp and clear pictures in almost any situation. The sensor is bigger too, which improved low light photography. If you've enjoyed the camera on the Galaxy Note 5, you'll absolutely love the Galaxy Note 9 cameras.

Oh, and did we mention there are two of them. Samsung's using a new dualpixel camera array that's fast, clear, and can take 960 fps slo-mo video. Additionally, the Note 9 features Samsung's new variable aperture technology.

What that means is the aperture can change from f/1.5 to f/2.4 apertures for the best possible photo in any situation, speed, or lighting. Just like how the human eye adapts to its surroundings, Samsung's camera can do the same thing. Basically, letting in more light for better photos. If it doesn't need a lot of light it uses a faster aperture for crisp, clear photos. Then, that second lens can zoom in closer on subjects, and help see the depth of field for portrait photos and other imagery. 

Basically, the Note 9 camera is a good 3-4 years ahead of the Note 5, and worth the upgrade across the board.

    Notes are great, but for me the 2:1 aspect ratio is a killer. Give me a 6.4 inch display at 3:2 (or even 4:3) and I’ll switch from my iPhone faster than a NY minute.
