7 Amazing Things Samsung Galaxy Note 9 can do that the iPhone can’t


If you are a person who uses Android and iOS Phones then this article will help you in highlighting 7 Amazing Things Samsung Galaxy Note 9 can do that the iPhone can’t.

1. ‘Beast’ mode makes the Note Phone faster

Animation Scale Beast Mode

While looking at the specification, Samsung Galaxy Note 9 is fast. It has a Qualcomm 845 processor running at up to 2.8GHz. (It’s faster than iPhone X, which clocks in at 2.39GHz, and the new iPhone XS Max, which reportedly comes in at 2.5GHz.) But with the Note 9’s “beast” mode, the phone can go a lot faster and allows apps and web pages to load in an instant. Watch video to get a detailed insight of Note 9’s Beast Mode.

According to CNBC, the iPhone can take a few seconds to fire up an app like Twitter. With beast mode on my Samsung, it takes one second for the Facebook app to launch (vs. three seconds on iPhone 8); one second for Google Maps to launch (vs. five seconds on iPhone); and half a second for Twitter to launch (vs. three seconds on iPhone).

To enable beast mode, go to settings, then to “about phone.” Scroll down to software information. Hit “build number” seven times, which will open the developer options. From here, scroll down to “animator duration scale.” Animation scale 1x is the factory setting but if you choose 0.5x, the phone will go faster.

2. Your home screen can be a video

You can set a video on your homescreen by following these simple steps. You have to go to your gallery, select the video you want to use, then go to the three dots in the top right corner. Once you click this, select “set as wallpaper.” From here you can set the video as the main screen on your phone.

3. You can use two sets of Bluetooth headphones at once

Like Apple, Samsung also allows you to connect Bluetooth headphones, in fact you can connect two sets (or two Bluetooth home speakers or mix and match in Samsung devices.

To do this, in settings, go to “connections,” then Bluetooth. Hit the three dots at the top right hand corner. Hit advanced and look for “dual audio.” It will scan for the Bluetooth headphones you want to use and connect.

Note 9 will also let you know when the headphones’ battery is running low usually at 10%.

4. Text messages can be scheduled

Scheduled Message in Note 9

With the Messages app on the Galaxy, you can give your texts a subject, like you would with an email. You can also hand-write text messages with the S Pen and the phone will automatically convert them into text.

But cool feature is that you can schedule text messages. You can do this by clicking the “+” button next to the text message field. When you select “schedule a text message,” it will open the calendar and time, so you can set up the exact moment you want the text to go out. Then simply type the message and hit send.

You can schedule messages for your friends’ and family’s birthdays, well, if you have a tendency to forget.

Though the iPhone doesn’t have a similar feature, you can schedule texts on an iPhone with Scheduled app, which allows three scheduled messages a month for free; unlimited scheduling for $2.99 a month.

5. ‘Glove mode’ lets you wear regular gloves and still use the phone

Touch Sensitivity

Putting the Note 9 in what’s known as “glove mode” increases the touch sensitivity of your phone so that you can even use it while wearing regular gloves. This feature is also great if you have a screen protector, which creates another barrier between your fingers and the phone’s sensor. (The iPhone only allows you to adjust the touch sensitivity for the Touch ID.)

To increase touch sensitivity, you have to go to advanced features in your settings, then find “touch sensitivity.”

You can also set Note 9 to avoid accidental touches, and therefore pocket dials. The phone uses various sensors to detect when its a dark place, like a pocket, purse or bookbag, preventing accidental calls or app launches during that time. (You can use glove and accidental at same time).

Block Accidental Touches

Go to settings, then display, and then click “block accidental touches.”

There is an app, Touch Protector, that protects unintended operations, but only for Android.

6. Smart lock detects when the phone is on your body


Every smartphone now allows you to customize your lock, whether it’s by way of facial recognition or a pass code. Note 9 offers many options, including patterns, PIN, password, voice match and face, iris and fingerprint recognition or intelligent scan, which is your face and iris together.

With Note’s “smart lock,” you can customize the features in convenient and innovative ways, like on-body detection, meaning that you never have to enter your unlock code to unlock the phone when you’re holding it. You can also set the phone up to stay unlocked in trusted places. You can set this up for your apartment and at work.

7. S Pen ‘extract’ let’s you copy and paste Instagram captions

Smart Select

With the S Pen can do many things, like write notes on the screen or on web pages after you’ve screen grabbed them, and have anything written converted to text.

One of the cool feature is “smart select.” With the S Pen, you can take text that you normally cannot copy or paste, like the captions in Instagram posts, and “extract” them. The pen copies the selected text you chose, so you can paste or share it.
