I might switch from Note 8 to 9 just for the sake of it and because I really like the Note line.
I'm getting to the point where I can do 90% of my work without even turning on my laptop because the phone so powerful.
It will be a big fall for Samsung i think. Same same = boring.
.alpha, 11 Jul 2018Samsung don't want to copy Apple but cannot come up with a new designNeither can Apple, considering this year's iPhones are gonna look the same as iPhone X.
Boring and outdated....
A little bit boring. They have started (again) lagging behind the competition in terms of design. IPhone X and its copycats are looking definitely better.
I want to see (and buy) a truly bezel-less smartphone from Samsung.
ha ha ha... now samsung fans have to face the same trolls like sony face year ago
keep it up because when you don't change people ask you to change and then you change people ask you why you change. that's life.
well, as a long time Samsung customer and honestly kind of a fan! i have to admit samsung's R&D department is a joke! they don't have anything new! they just wait for some other manufacturers to innovate and then they either buy it or copy it! just like apple! i mean why would someone pay top dollar for the same thing, they couldn't even fit the in display fingerprint reader! i mean how much of a difference does SD845 make over SD835 in real world experience! go check the battery endurance test of GsmArena S8+ has better ratings than S9+. people we have to stop forking out our hard earn money for the same boring handsets!
Anonymous, 11 Jul 2018Same design again.Give just 1 reason of why it's something negative
How about Note10+ with 7inches screen
Samsung don't want to copy Apple but cannot come up with a new design
Years ago there was a joke about Apple simply adding an extra row of icons for the iPhone 5. Then the gag became, "if they keep doing this, the iPhone 10 should look like a light-saber."
Luckily Apple stopped and kept the proportions of their handsets reasonable. Samsung on the other hand believes the world needs a light-saber phone. Maybe the Note 15?
Davood, 11 Jul 2018If Note 9 looks exactly like the Note 8 so there's no need for an upgrade I'll stay with the Note 8Why would Samsung change design every year? Apple already proved that people likes practical phone. If design is good and people like it then why to change right away?
big mistake samsung. the phone is not pocketable and wierdly long.
Anonymous, 11 Jul 2018Same design again.iPhone6. 6s. 7. and 8. 4 year consecutive. iphone 4, 4s, 5, 4s. also 4 year consescutive. i want my phone design to be practical and make sense not just changing for the sake of changing.
Same design again.
AnonD-621054, 11 Jul 2018Samsung mobile using 5 year ago s5 & J7 devices wrost experience update are not stable bat... moreI can understand J7, but not S5. Of course its software was not the best, even for those times (tried custom roms after a month), but it was the sturdiest smartphone I ever had. This little motherf***** spent almost 3 years with me, drowned several times, got dropped countless times, got lost in snow for two nights, and everything worked! Only things I replaced in it was battery and back cover :D Now I have S7 and I REALLY miss my old pal. Or at least the ability to swap batteries :P
If Note 9 looks exactly like the Note 8 so there's no need for an upgrade I'll stay with the Note 8
