The Samsung Galaxy Note 9 is an incredibly good flagship smartphone, and one thing that makes it such a joy to use is its level of performance. Powered by Samsung’s very own Exynos 9810 chipset, just how powerful is the Galaxy Note 9?
Well, very powerful. Couple that high level of performance with the Note 9’s water carbon cooling system, and you have yourself a very capable device perfectly suited for long gaming sessions.
First, let’s get to know the Exynos 9810 further. Made up of four high performance custom cores clocked at 2.7GHz and another four low-power 1.8GHz Cortex-A55 cores, the Note 9 balances performance and power efficiency very well. On top of that, it’s also equipped with ARM’s Mali-G72 GPU, which is the company’s best GPU to date in a consumer-ready product.
As for the Note 9’s water carbon cooling system, Samsung says the thermal spreader is three times bigger than those found in conventional smartphones. This, in turn, improves heat dissipation, which reduces the risk of thermal throttling. In practice, this lets the Exynos 9810 to operate at peak performance.
To put the Exynos 9810 and the Galaxy Note 9’s water carbon cooling system to the test, we’ve played quite a number of graphically-demanding games like Fortnite and PUBG Mobile on the phone. Not only did these games run very smoothly on the Note 9, it did not get too warm either. Evidently, the phone’s cooling system – and SoC – works great.
Further enhancing the performance of the Galaxy Note 9 is the very, very generous 8GB RAM on the 512GB variant – that’s the same amount of RAM shipping in most laptops today. Thanks to the huge RAM capacity, you don’t have to worry about your game being force closed in the background as you switch over to a different app – it’ll be right where you left it.
Beyond raw performance itself, there are many other qualities of the Note 9 that makes it a really pleasant phone to game with. Its AKG-tuned stereo speakers, for one, is one of the most impressive audio systems we’ve heard on a smartphone. On top of that, you also have the Note 9’s gorgeous 6.4-inch 1440p Super AMOLED Infinity Display and large 4,000mAh battery. You no longer have to charge your device constantly in those long gaming sessions.
Without a doubt the Samsung Galaxy Note 9 is a fast, powerful smartphone, and if you’re a heavy mobile gamer, it will serve you very well. Fortnite fans will get a treat too: you can get the exclusive Galaxy skin if you play the game on the Note 9. Trust us, the Galaxy skin is one of the most unique and sought-after skins in the massively popular battle royale game.
