Samsung Galaxy Note 9 vs Note 8, iPhone X, Pixel 2 XL: size comparison
The Samsung Galaxy Note 9 is finally official and it looks a lot like its predecessor, but what about those tiny details that differ?

Of course, we had to investigate and to illustrate the difference in size between the Galaxy Note 9 and its note-worthy rivals like the Apple iPhone X, Google Pixel 2 XL, OnePlus 6 and the rest, we are using our trust-worthy size comparison tool. Did you know that you can compare the size of any phone to any other phone yourself on our website? Just click this link here and explore away.

In the case of the Galaxy Note 9, we start our comparison by looking at how its size compares to other Samsung Galaxies...

Samsung Galaxy Note 9 vs Note 8 vs S9+ vs S9

Even bigger than the Note 8, but not by much!

Interestingly, the Note 9 is actually slightly bigger than last year's Note 8: it's a bit wider (76.4mm vs 74.8mm) and slightly thicker at 8.8mm compared to the 8.6mm. We'd gladly take that smidgen of added thickness in exchange for a much bigger, 4,000mAh battery, though! What has also increased is the weight and this is officially one of the largest phones Samsung has ever released.

Notice that it towers over the already big Galaxy S9+ and simply dwarfs the tinier Galaxy S9. This truly is a giant phone!

Samsung Galaxy Note 9 vs iPhone 8 Plus vs iPhone X vs iPhone 8

Bigger than the huge iPhone 8 Plus, eclipses the iPhone X

The Note 9 looks massive when you compare it to the latest crop of Apple iPhones too. The iPhone 8 Plus is one of the biggest mainstream phones out there, but the Note 9 is even bigger, taller and thicker, and about as heavy as the Plus-sized iPhone.

And when you compare it to the all-screen iPhone X, well... the iPhone X just looks minimalistic! Of course, a bigger phone means a bigger screen, which results in higher productivity, but don't forget that if you carry it in your pocket, its weight will be noticeable.

Once the iPhone XS Plus is announced and released the Note 9 steam/momentum will go away...People will forget that this handset released today.

that won't happen because the first device they will compare it to is the note 9 so stop being an idiot and start using your brain

You mean the one that's slightly bigger but have the exact same design, and no extra feature compared to iPhoneX? Wow, that's really exciting isn't it? /s

The extra feature will be the price tag when its $1500

Why would anyone pay more to downgrade from a Note to an iPhone?
