    All phones are not perfect. That is why they keep on producing a new one.
    Maybe also a strategy to creating a new one. "Upgrades" - "more price"....

      I just wish it would be removed (in OS) and replaced with fully programmable button (like the one on the stylus but please do not make it as a duplicate of it and make it a true "macro" programmable phone button)

    I have a galaxy note9. i kinda hate it. Still dsoesnt reliably alert me of all missed calls (although it does alert me to most of them now.) and phones in general still need to increase that durability, sharply.

    Thinking its about time to upgrade to this from my Samsung Galaxy Note Edge, disappointed in hearing what the Note 10 & 10+ has to offer. Going to wait till the end of the month however, should be cheaper when the 10 series releases :D

      @Properso :D
      DONGLES are OBJECTIVELY INFERIOR TO A HEADPHONE JACK do you understand this simple point? Considering you're a SIMPLETON I doubt it.
      The Headphone jack doesn't take up much space at all it provides the best sound quality out of any standard the best you can do is MATCH it and the vast majority of headphones worth a damn all use IT.
      You are technologically illiterate get out of my sight.
      Laptops are not dropping headphone jacks, a few laptops trying it does not mean its the general trend like it is with smartphones where every single smartphone from the main brands doesn't have one. Laptops will always have headphone jacks even if macbooks drop it because guess what people actually use laptops for work and other shit sound related where USB-C only headphones will cause nothing but problems (due to the fact that there's minuscule amounts of them and they're all universally shittier than the top end headphones you could buy for professional work).

      The only way the headphone jack will ever die is if a superior standard comes along, USB-C isn't a superior standard at best its roughly equal quality wise while making every decent headphone on the planet incompatible and at worst its down right annoying and keeps you from using it certain ways or forces you to carry shitty dongles with you.
      The only people who un-ironically reply with "Dongles" to these types of complaints are drooling sheep that are, again, TECHNOLOGICALLY ILLLITERATE. Small and portable that's the name of the game Dongles literally go against BOTH of those principles by forcing you to carry around ANOTHER thing, you are an actual moron...

      Just because companies are beating it into your head that you "don't need a headphone jack" doesn't mean you have to eat it up, you're an actual fucking sheep, its pathetic.

    Rewatched this because Note 10 just got announced. This is maybe the last real good Note to come out. All it was missing was a wide angle lens. Other than that, the phone is near perfect. The 10 tho? Rip jack.

      I just switched to the Note 9 this week (from an HTC 10). The Note 10's punch-hole display and lack of a headphone jack made it not even a consideration.

      I did exactly that. I bought my Note 9 when I heard the rumours about the lacks in the new one and I believed it was a better option the 9 for half of the price and I couldn't be happier. Best features per price ratio right now!

      And even that can be overcome by panorama mode, mostly. Watching the videos about the note 10 and the old ones about the note 9, I am looking for places to buy the note 9. For half the price of the new one!

    If you like using emulators Linus, I think drastic is a good emulator and some games are so good to use the pen with it. I can agree from testing myself that the camera has not changed much even from the S7 which I like. The curves I got used to after hating them, but I like that the whole phone isn't curved like a whole monitor. it is hillarious when I play some games that do not have a big enough screen ratio to fit the whole screen, but that is fine to me. Fortnite is pretty good on this phone and you can get it full screen on this phone. I got mine on a mobile ulgrade plan which I am thankful for after my S7 died after 3 years and would not even show if it was charging and had a black screen. I hope not phones with the ability to have nothing in the way of the screen and have no curved monitor like screen and a headphone jack keep being made. FYI I prefer the m40x compared to many other headphones, but the best in the box in ear headphone I have tried are the balenced and flat ones that come with this one which are comfy af.

    I have had a Note9 since Feb 2019. My only complaint with the phone isn't just a complaint with the phone but Samsung itself. They have a history of locking the bootloaders for their US versions. Given that Android was built with developers in mind, it sucks when you can't use every development option such as flashing and installing custom roms.

    Just as bad and suspicious as Unbox Theory Samsung reviews, 75% praise then nitpick 1 or 2 things for rest of 25% of video. Note 9 might be better than Note 10 at least it has headphone jack.
