The spring launch of the Samsung Galaxy S range may be the Android event of the year for those looking to upgrade their old handset, but six months down the line there's another launch. This one is for those who are after nothing but the best and will pay whatever the cost to get it. The Samsung Galaxy Note 9 is here, bigger, more powerful and more over-the-top than ever. If you choose the maximum specifications, it's the first Samsung's smartphone to cost £1,000 - but should is it worth it? We put it through its paces at our mobile phone test lab to see whether it could possibly live up to the hype.
