Samsung Galaxy Note9 (2018) vs Moto Z4 (2019)

Analysis:

The Samsung Galaxy Note9 (2018) was loved by reviewers at AVForums, a highly trusted source that performs reliable in-depth testing. It did great in its "Editor's Choice Awards - Best Smartphones 2018" roundup where it was named its "Best Smartphone For Productivity 2018", which, in itself, makes it a product worth considering.

As for the Moto Z4 (2019), it wasn't able to earn a top spot in any roundups from trusted sources that conduct their own hands-on testing. Nevertheless, it managed to impress reviewers at PhoneArena, PCmag, The Verge, and Android Central enough to make it onto their respective shortlists.

To get a better idea of how they fare when compared directly to each other, we analyzed review scores of sources that tested both. PCmag, Android Central, The Verge, and Digitaltrends, for example, preferred the Samsung Galaxy Note9 (2018), while PhoneArena rated both of them the same.

We also took a look at which sources had the best things to say about them. We learned that the Samsung Galaxy Note9 (2018) got reviewed the highest by zdnet.com - it gave it a rating of 9.5, while the Moto Z4 (2019) most impressed reviewers at PhoneArena, which gave it a score of 9.

Lastly, we averaged out all of their review ratings and observed that the Samsung Galaxy Note9 (2018), with its 8.7 average, performed considerably better than most Smartphones - the mean score for the product category being 7.5 out of 10 - while the Moto Z4 (2019) managed an average of 7.2.

There's one caveat here - it might not be entirely justifiable to do a direct Samsung Galaxy Note9 (2018) vs. Moto Z4 (2019) review average comparison since they aren't priced the same and more expensive products tend to get higher review scores from some sources.
