If you are looking to buy a smartphone of that power, but not the Note 9 because you don’t like its massive size or its huge price. Here is a list of alternatives you can consider.
Apple iPhone X

Also, if you don’t have much use for the S-Pen and you don’t mind the Notch, the iPhone X is the best alternative for you.

Samsung Galaxy Note 8
The Samsung Galaxy Note 8 is the predecessor of the Galaxy Note 9. The smartphone packs everything the Note 9 packs, including the S-Pen. It runs on slightly older hardware, but it is quite cheap compared to that. Now that the Note 9 has launched, Samsung will soon bring the prices of the Note 8 close to the Rs. 45,000 mark. So that makes it a good choice.
The OnePlus 6 packs the same processor, the same ram and slightly less storage then the Note 9. What it offers is all of that for a much less price. While the Note 9 starts $999, the OnePlus 6 starts at Rs. 34,999. That is way cheaper than the Note 9 and you can almost get two of these for the price of one Note 9. This makes it a worthy competitor.
