If your smartphone is starting to get laggy, have we got a deal for you.

Today only, the Samsung Galaxy Note 9 is a whopping 50 percent off—it’s on sale for $499, or $501 off at Amazon, as part of the retail giant’s deal of the day. This is the lowest price ever for this wildly popular smartphone.

The Samsung Galaxy Note 9 (Lavender Purple only) has an impressive 12-hour battery life and 6GB of memory paired with 128GB of onboard storage (which you can expand to up to 512GB via microSD card). It has a massive 6.4-inch touchscreen display, which one delighted reviewer enthusiastically described as “extraordinary.”

Perhaps the best part of the Samsung Galaxy Note 9 is the S-Pen stylus. Use it to draw, sketch, take handwritten notes or even mark up photos. You can also use it to navigate your phone without having to touch the screen.

“The S-Pen is fantastic,” added an excited Amazon reviewer. “You can write notes and save them from the lock screen, which I have already done a couple of times. Once you break the habit of using your fingers to do everything, your phone’s screen doesn’t need to be cleaned nearly as often.”

Reviewers even prefer the screen to the one on their iPhone:

“I also have the iPhone Xs Max and I have to say that phone does not use the big screen AT ALL,” one shopper shared. “No picture-in-picture, no dual screens. Heck, you can’t even do full screen video unlike the Note 9. The Note 9 does it all and with a pen.”

If you want something with more space, this Samsung Galaxy Note 9 has a whopping 512GB of on-board storage and it’s on sale for $649, or $601 off, today only. That’s a 48 percent savings! It comes in Lavender Purple, Midnight Black and Ocean Blue.

The reviews quoted above reflect the most recent versions at the time of publication.
