I don't see why s9 didnt sell well. Its great, improved on last years model. Hmmmm whatevs
TearLight, 02 Aug 2018note 9 or mate 20?Well, you'll have to wait for them to actually be released and tried.
But in when it comes to top tier, I'm in favor of Samsung. In midrange, I'd choose huawei over Samsung.

Samsung color reproduction used to be far from natural but it has been improving vastly since S8. I expect the Note 9 to deliver even better camera shots, though I hardly see S8 (or even S7 users) upgrading, as the latter still offers decent performance.
On battery life, I want to see if Note 9 will surpass my current phone: Galaxy A7 2017, the best battery life ever in Oreo.
Anonymous, 02 Aug 2018Ever heard of the concept of personal preference?
Here's a hint as well.
FREE WIFI is NO... moreWhy would one prefer sd card vs internal memory? Give me one reasonable explanation.
And not having free Wi-Fi must suck. I wouldn't know except for a few greedy hotels.
The Samsung Trade-in Program is a sham! please don't fall for it - they will ask you to ship your 'old' device in exchange for the $$ off but then a few months later turn around and say that they never received the device or that the box they received was empty and simply charge you back the $$ they gave 'off'.
It's sad that a company as big as Samsung is supporting absolute theft practices like this.
Srinivas, 02 Aug 2018There is no alternative for Note Series..Have a look at mate 10. It has 16x9 screen which is a bit bigger that of note 4.
I'm very happy with it
LG Superfan, 02 Aug 2018Vanilla (non pro) Mate 10 is better than ProBattery wise it's a monster.
After note 4, mate 10 gives me 2 full days of intensive use. I'm still getting g used to such a luxury

FREE WIFI is NOT EVERYWHERE.
Given that S9 sales have been poor, i'm really confused by Samsung's strategy here. Another iterative upgrade with no discernible change to the design?
Not that it's a bad design at all... it just feels like another flop in the making. Then again, what do I know.
Anonymous, 02 Aug 2018No sd slot. No thanks.Afaik the Note 9 does have an SD slot, even in the 512GB version.
I don't see any big change between the S8 and S9 series to generate a sales difference. At least with the IPhone the larger screen size will help set it apart. Not sure yet on the Pixel 3 camera setting it apart. It doesn't help that the cost of these phones keeps going up as well.
LG Superfan, 02 Aug 2018Vanilla (non pro) Mate 10 is better than ProThe honor 10 has crap for LTE support. Maybe they should start coping Samsung in that regard they could start selling phones outside of China and India.
The 10th anniversary will be very exciting and interesting at the same time.
This one will sell no batter than the S9, it's just a pointless phone, that has nothing new and obviously made as a cash-grab to whoever commits to buying it.
