    Other than Samsung's slow OS upgrades and somewhat underwhelming selfie portraits, there really is nothing to complain about this phone. It really checks all the boxes and more with useful features especially after the OneUI update. Even its design is perfect. I'd take the Note 9's slim and symmetrical forehead/chin that gives me full screen experience without notches or punch holes, along with Iris scanner and notification light, over some gimmicky designs for the sake of reducing bezels. It really is a joy to use.

    But 12 megapixels for the cameras is not that technologically advanced in comparison to the newer Galaxy A70 which has 32 Megapixils and is half the price of its predecessor Note 9.

    5:18 NFC is nt a big for China? But from what I know, China use a lot NFC to pay? Isnt it? The alipay,wechat pay and so on. I saw a lot of youtuber from China,they claimed you can go out with just your phone. Cash is becoming optional nowadays. Correct me if I am wrong. P.s. I'm not from China, thats why I am seeking any explanation. Thank you.

    I have (and LOVE) this phone, and honestly, I got it for 2 reasons: 1.) I find the watching & looking at the screen/colors/display is just a RICHER experience than it's comparable counterparts. And for me, being someone who sometimes PREFERS watching movies/video's on my phone, this is VERY, VERY, VERY important. 2.) Good battery. I remember when I couldn't watch a 90-minute movie on my Iphone without the battery dying. Now, I'm pretty sure I could watch End-Game (or any 3 hour movie) two or three times...
    My one piece of advice to anyone who buys this phone: if you don't get a case, be careful on what type of surfaces you set it down on. Between how slick/slippery the phone's shell is, and how powerful the speakers are, I've seen my phone slide 3 feet across my desk because my desk is glossed & isn't PERFECTLY level. The first DAY I had it, it fell over 3.5 feet off my dresser, luckily it didn't make a single mark....But, I could have broken it, literally, the first day...

    some apple users are so delusional and also brainwashed by the constant new re-releases of older phones and it's sad note 9 is such an innovation S10+ as well and brainwashed apple users don't know how good the other phones are, it's like drugs when you get addicted to it, you can't stop buying it. Honestly nowadays I don't think that apple are even relevant anymore, they just do it for the money in my opinion they don't listen to their customers. The phones are refreshed a bunch of times, look at the iPhone X or 10 They refreshed it 4 times. Like, it's really stupid iPhone X, iPhone XS, iPhone XS Max, iPhone XR and what is the difference nothing, a little bigger screen and thats all like honestly, apple are pathetic, instead of innovation just refresh other products with a bigger screen, it's honestly sad to see apple getting absolutely destroyed by almost any company now. If you read this, and you disagree please reply to me, explaining your argument

    I'll tell you 2 major dislikes. A housing made of glass. Almost everyone I know is covering the phone in even 360 covers as if it was a raw egg. And that's what it is. One drop without bumpers and it's smashed. Second... The battery which is not accesable without losing warrenty. The whole industry is fooling us and makes us buy new phones. I still use my note 4. As a backup.

      Yup, the Note series aren't phones that bring new things, but they bring everything to the table. Espescially with Note 9, you don't have to compromise as you have everything any other phone could offer. But it is heavy and expensive

    I got the ocean blue note 9. After 4 weeks of use, one thing i can say when i compare its FUNCTIONALITY with other phones: it is like comparing a bike with a bulldozer. This phone is not a phone. It is a TOOL. And anyone who dares to disagree with this, is a tool. This phone is the definition of INNOVATION.

    Also the pen is really useful when you pair it with photos, videos and screenshots. it is an undervalued and underfeatured tool that could be much more used and desirable if Samsung explored it more.

    I have the Note 9 and I love it, but one of the simplest things they overlooked is, when you have a magnet cover (flip with a magnet strip not overlaping magnet strap), it sets off the spen and makes the phone act up. The solution would be for cover makers to create a cover that closes on the opposite side of the usual covers (instead of opening from right to left, switch covers to open from left to right). It is however, so far been impossible to find such cover.

    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.
