Nokia 9 (2019) vs Samsung Galaxy Note8 (2017)

Analysis:

The Nokia 9 PureView (2019) has done really well in a number of roundups conducted by sources that perform reliable hands-on testing, like nextpit.com, Android Central, and slashgear.com - it ended up getting the "Best camera" title from nextpit.com, "Best for Photography" from Android Central, and "Best Camera of MWC 2019" from slashgear.com. That's high praise coming from reliable sources.

As for the Samsung Galaxy Note8 (2017) - it was really well-received by reviewers at Tom's Guide, a great source that's known for conducting high-quality in-depth testing. It performed great in its "The 11 Best Verizon Phones, Ranked Top to Bottom" roundup and was named its "Ranked 3 out of 11", which, on its own, makes it a product that warrants a closer look.

We analyzed all of the review data that we could find on these two Smartphones. First, we examined sources that tested and scored both of these products - Android Authority, PCmag, Techradar, Notebookcheck.net, PhoneArena, Digitaltrends, and Android Central favored the Samsung Galaxy Note8 (2017) over the Nokia 9 PureView (2019), whereas reviewers at AVForums haven't shown a preference for either.

Then we took a look at which sources liked them the most - we found that the Nokia 9 PureView (2019) was best received by Notebookcheck.net - it gave it a score of 8.7, whereas the Samsung Galaxy Note8 (2017) got its highest score of 10 from reviewers at PCWorld.

Lastly, in order to better compare them to the rest of their competition, we averaged out their review scores. The Samsung Galaxy Note8 (2017) managed to get 8.4 out of 10 - considerably better than the 7.5 review average of Smartphones in general - whereas the Nokia 9 PureView (2019) earned 6.7 points.

It should be said that doing a direct Nokia 9 PureView (2019) vs. Samsung Galaxy Note8 (2017) comparison might not be entirely fair due to the difference in their prices - some sources don't put much weight on value for money and thus tend to give better review scores to more expensive products.
