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

Release Date & Price

Release Date & Price

Does any of this sound exciting to you? The Galaxy Note 9 will be a significant upgrade for anyone that still uses the Galaxy Note 5.

So, when can you get one and how much will it cost? Those are two very important questions.

Samsung officially announced the Galaxy Note 9 on August 9th, 2018, in New York City. It's available for pre-order as we speak, and it'll hit store shelves around the globe from August 22-24th. The release date is the 24th, but some buyers will get it early.

How much? Well, that's the painful part. The Galaxy Note 9 is $999. Yes, one grand. You're getting a huge screen, tons of power, 4x the storage, two cameras, a bigger battery and more, so it kinda makes sense. 

As for the Note 5, you can't buy it anywhere anymore. It was expensive back in the day, but you probably paid $199 or $249 and signed a contract. It doesn't work that way anymore. Instead, you'll probably pay $35-40 a month for the phone for 24 months until you pay it off. The contracts are phone payment plans, not contracts from carriers. 

Either way, the Galaxy Note 9 is arguably one of the best phones of the year and a great phone to upgrade to.

    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.
