If the note 9 had the same power draw as the note 8, then you would be correct.
It doesn't sound right. Toms did something wrong with battery test with either the note 8 or note 9. They don't give details how they came to results.

Their testing methodology is inconsistent. The first time they did is with adaptive brightness. Everything other phone battery test they did state 150nit brightness and includes a chart. They don't state it with the note 9.

But the Note 9 didn’t turn in the best results on the Tom’s Guide Battery Test (continuous web-surfing over T-Mobile’s LTE network until the phone dies) initially lasting 11 hours and 16 minutes. We turned off the phone's adaptive display feature, and retested: the Note 9 lasted an extra 10 minutes on the test.
Note 8

On the Tom's Guide Battery Test, which involves continuous web surfing over 4G on 150 nits of screen brightness, the Note 8 lasted a very strong 11 hours and 11 minutes on T-Mobile's network.
According to Tom "P20 Pro held out for 14 hours, 13 minutes"

The note 9 in this video lasted 40mins longer than the P20pro and 1hr 20m longer that the s9 plus.


Toms hardware test result for the s9 plus is 11hrs and 11:11 for note 8
The s9plus has 3500mAh, using the result from Toms. The s9plus last 19mins per 100mAh. Adding 500mAh x 19min get me 1h 35m. That's very close to the video's result. My point is the result should be 1hour longer.

I suspect the test methodology isn't the same like their previous phones reviews.
