Not a bad device. Hardware-wise it's the pinnacle of evolution. Too bad it's running Google's Android. I'm seriously considering not buying this even though I really want a Note phone. I really hope big companies will start talking amongst each other to fork Android away from Google. Google funds hate speech to push revenue on their services. Google needs to end or get back to not being evil.
So what this pool tells us is that more than 30% of the users of this site (i.e the majority of trolls) are fanboys and so buy phones just for looks/status that is why the choice made by most customers does not reflect the opinions of writers and most fanboys here
I wish GSM Editors would know the uses if Bixby Button and functions

It's never been mass product and best seller. It is very specific phone with best specs from Samsung and S-pen. S-pen and bigger screen - main difference from other Samsung phones. It's very good and very convenient phone if you need or can use it for work. For notes, for documents etc

Waiting to see if they can improve the camera output over the one of the S9+. Regardless, I'll still wait for the Mate 20 Pro and maybe Nokia's next flagship before I make a decision.
Why do I even try? It's obvious everybody hates this phone just cause its not being revolutionary and the price
nakicccc, 05 Aug 2018So much hype for the phone which will be eaten by Mate 20 Pro. I dont know why.The Huawei Mate 20 Pro's CPU (kirin 980) is a totally new technology, and of course will be stronger than the Note9 in terms of performance, so you should compare the Note9 with any other phone from the same technology lineup, not with something superior to it, as the win is in the Mate 20 Pro's favor.

Almost everything of this phone is perfect. That's it.
If you don't have note 8 and don't want to wait for note 10, this is great buy. Batter battery, bigger screen. Wait half a year for price to go down.
Asphalt-nation, 05 Aug 2018The same stuff as last year, but still 1000$

There were many articles about this phone, If you would read some of them then wouldn't say that it is the same.

Well, what do you want? Qualcomm to release a 7nm chipset and the suc... more S9+' camera
Buy a S9 then it's cheaper and no upgrade.
and also much better place for fingerprint sensor
Not worth the price difference
you are getting 4000 mAh battery,
If batteries were replaceable this wouldn't be an issue.
proper IP68 protection,
I don't usually go swimming with my phone plus s9 is water resistant for cheaper.
S-Pen with a whole lot of features,
Many people dont need or use the pen.
Samsung's new UI,
New touchwiz? Oh I mean experience.. yay,?!
no notch lol,
S9 also no notch and cheaper
color combinations of the Note 9 and S-Pen,
Colors not worth the price
512 GB of internal storage with expandable memory.
Who needs all that
8 GB of RAM, 3.5 mm headphone jack.
Again it's overkill for the price. S9 has headphone jack
So in all its a nice phone but for me and many others it's overkill and overpriced
So much hype for the phone which will be eaten by Mate 20 Pro. I dont know why.

You can't use 850 or 1000 for note. And 845's is this year's top dog (and as someone who owns that babe I can confirm it's indeed a beastie)
Robbie, 05 Aug 2018Tempted get my Note 8 on ebay now, like the one with the yellow s pen. Don't think it's possible. Lengthes are different

"Same 10 nm chipset"
Well, what do you want? Qualcomm to release a 7nm chipset and the successor of SD 845 especially for Note 9? What you smoking?
"Nothing new. Only price hike"
Oh God, come on, you are getting S9+' camera and also much better place for fingerprint sensor, you are getting 4000 mAh battery, proper IP68 protection, S-Pen with a whole lot of features, Samsung's new UI, no notch lol, color combinations of the Note 9 and S-Pen, 512 GB of internal storage with expandable memory. 8 GB of RAM, 3.5 mm headphone jack.
Dude, what else do you even need?!
Haters gonna hate.
