    My Note 4 has recently started having eMMC issues. Was looking at upgrading to the 9 but then found out about Wakelock. My issues have now gone away (woot). Hopefully I'll be able to hold out now until the Note 10/X. My only concern is that with my Note 4 I can replace the battery myself, but I doubt I'll be able to with my next Note, especially after watching teardown vids.

    Or if you want to get rid of all bloatware and bixby on phone, get the (Package disabler Pro, Samsung). Worked on my verizon note 9 and got rid of whatever i wanted (ahem faceshit and assby). Can destroy system files if not careful.

    This is the phone that got me to switch from the iPhone. No notch, includes a headphone jack, has amazing processing speeds, and I also get a pen so I can take notes on my phone during meetings without looking like a jackass? I really can't see myself going back to Apple after this.

    The s pen's remote stylus is very useful when I'm not carrying my slr and I shoot pro mode. Tapping the screen while on a screen can sometimes result in camera shake.

  • Homagni Dutta
    Homagni Dutta 13 days ago

    I have the S9 plus and I'm not willing to get note 9 anyways. I think two of them are identical. Note 9 is not meant to be better than S9. So choose the S9 if you don't want the stylus.

    Bixby does get annoying. Best thing I did was go into the settings and make it so she activates only if I double tap the button as I always accidentally press it when trying to lower the volume

    for you guys in the comments. apple has gone stale. there hasnt been innovation in so long with those guys. taking stuff away is not innovation. Some company will innovate, apple will take it and people will jump to the conclusion that its better than it was before their greasy hands touched it whether it was or not. I'll stick with the galaxy lineup until a company actually blows me away and makes something better. I wouldnt think twice about leaving them either because im not a brand specific person, i just like innovation.

    Ordered the Google Pixel XL, didn't like it. Sent it back. Ordered the iPhone X, didn't like it. It's glitchy and freezes up on me. I've had to hard restart it several times. Sending it back. I have the Note 9 on the way and I am stoked. So many great reviews. Maybe, just maybe, I'll finally be happy.

      +Kim Wendel Medrano Got the phone, absolutely love it. It's fast, very responsive, and sleek as heck. So far i have found nothing I do not like about it. Just a matter of learning about all the features, because it does a lot! Only thing I could complain about if I was one to complain, would be the massive amount of apps it comes preloaded with. I removed half of them. Love the S pen, picture quality is beautiful. Now, i just have to find a case I really like. Currently using an Otter Box, but it's sort of plain, lol.

    i am an iPhone Fan and user ever since, but i think Note 9 is better than iphone XS max in terms of usablity, it is basically smarter than the iPhone XS max. But on the other hand iPhone XS max's optimization and performance are slightly better than the NOte 9.

    What I don't understand is...Why would Samsung (Bixby belongs to Samsung?) put Bixby on their newer phones (e.g. S9/Note 9) when they know Google assistant/accounts MUST be setup anyway for social media. It's a part of setup for Android devices (Apple too?). Can't get around Google (or can you?). And Samsung should have allowed you to use the Bixby button for other functions if so desired...still love my Note 9. It was THE phone I wanted. Always wanted a Note phone...never got one before due to timing and pricing. Had to settle for a Samsung S4 at the time (5 yrs ago)...not unhappy with that phone...did it's job. But I had to "settle"...features/good price.
    After 2 years (Nov 2020) phone...MUST have a 4k screen...will likely be the Note 11. S-Pen is so useful. Should be a MUST in any device (tablet,

    Other reviews complain about the fingerprint reader being too high but since the battery is substantially larger in the Note 9, they had no choice but to place it higher up to accommodate for the battery. I'd rather go through that slight trouble than having a smaller capacity battery.

    Considering this for my next upgrade, I'd love to go with the Pixel 3XL but its simply not a beefy enough battery and not enough of an upgrade from my LG V20. Essentially the same amount of battery and non-removable just won't cut it. I haven't really been a Samsung fan since the s5 though I'm still skeptical
