    The s pen can also magnify areas on the screen, glance at minimized apps by hovering the pen over them and it can translate words just by hovering the pen over the word! Great for pen paling. and the precisen of it makes games like runescape pure joy. I thought the stylist was a gimmick too, but now I use it all the time

      I'm really contemplating the Note 8 or 9, I'm just too torn. My Note 3 lasted me 5 years (screen finally broke so now I'm using a beater phone), the next phone I buy is also gonna be used for many years. I just can't decide between a ~$450 Note 8 or ~$950 Note 9. If I could finance it, I'd go all out in a heartbeat.

    I purchased it for 2/3 of the price when it was new at a small retail seller online. I couldn't have been more happier since I love the note series and wanting a new note phone ever since. This video even made me more happier I invested on a phone that I know will not disapoint me for probably the next incoming half decade if not more!

    why do I even watch a review of a Samsung product from Linus... he's sponsored by Samsung. I already know what he is going to say. BEST THING EVER... EVER... NEVER WILL BE BEAT. EXCEPT FOR THIS ONE PROBLEM THAT LITERALLY WILL NOT BE NOTICED BY 99.99% OF USERS. ... 3 months later ... THE NEW BEST THING EVER THAT I DIDN'T HAVE TO PAY FOR.

    This review SUCKS! Get a real job Linus!... Fluffy got an eye infection!
    I bought this phone due to the "Zero Compromise" and I accidentally stabbed my cat in the eye with the stylus.. Now she walks into walls and stuff. So what do I do? Return the cat? Or compromise and accept the fact that my cat will always be WAY off when she tries to catch the laser pointer? Having a perfect phone and a defective cat sucks. She misses the litter box half the time..

    Sounds really interesting. I can't afford it, but it's encouraging to know that by the time I can, they'll basically be out with the Note11 or Note12, which might very well actually _be_ perfect.

    Had the pixel 2 xl and then switched to the Note 9. Love both the devices... The battery life on this device is just nuts, along with that 😘😍 screen!! But overall I still preffer the pixel device for it's absolute genius computational photography!! But at the end of the day, if it's a device from Samsung or Google am pretty happy about it.

    So The First Phone I got was an Iphone, back then in 2014, And after my brothers switched to the samsung galaxy and notes, I was like Hmm Maybe it's for a reason, So I switched to the S7 Edge and it was great, I had it for 3 years, Then I downgraded because I sold it, And Now I really Want the Note 9. The same thing goes for Xbox, I got and Xbox One as my first online console in 2012 I think, and A year later I got A Ps4, and Oh Boy, The Xbox Is just a Box in my room that I just see and go like "Meh".

    My favorite model iPhone was the 4s it was little and compact with good HD my favorite model galaxy is the s9 its little and compact with good HD. When you buy a phone you need to think about where you work and what you do, me I'm a construction worker that works at a plant so I need a little phone that packs a punch that doesn't take to much room in my pocket. The notes are for ppl that work in a office.

    I love Samsung phones but I just hate the software and software look. Which is why I switched to iOS and I would’ve gotten the 6t or pixel 3xl but the pixel was to ugly and one plus just didn’t feel premium enough for me but oxygen is is beautiful. Anyways I chose the iPhone XS and sticking with it for some time

    note 9 was a waste. Not much of difference from note 8. Same boring design, much bigger price. Samsung starting to suck. Other phone companies are coming out with some really cool looking phones. I was a samsung supporter until they released prices for the s10 and note 10 will start at $1100 to $1800. Fuck that if I will pay. While cell service gets cheaper, the phones are more expensive then some cars
