Hard to say. I will wait. Not due to price but just want to see what the rest of the year got to offer. Cant say there are 'better' phone out there that surpassed Note9 capabilities and features either. Also surprised people here actually opting and recommending S8 series. Lol. What happened to all the bashing with awkward fingerprint position? Thats argument suddenly no longer valid after you seeing the lower price tag now? smh
Sathya, 13 Aug 2018Sammy is just trying to rob the money by charging a humongous amount of money for note9. Bett... moreIt is true. It's way too expensive. But without other companies and especially Samsung. Those other companies couldn't sell those cheaper phones
James Whister, 12 Aug 2018The 128gb model is available in my country for the same price as the iPhone X 256gb one. And... moreBut that is a year old phone, it would only be fair to compare current iphone x prices with the note 9 a year later
Sammy is just trying to rob the money by charging a humongous amount of money for note9.
Better to buy some top spec chinese phone at 1/3rd of this note 9's price
Geric.770, 13 Aug 2018They must remove the S+ series at least!And make the note into S+ :D (yeah. I'm back and kicking arses now! >:3)
Anonymous, 13 Aug 2018Your point being...? It should be something different if Samsung wants to keep their sales... moreWatch them rake in record sales nonetheless and weep. You obviously don't know how the market works.
In our market, the pre-order exclusive 512gb rom version comes bundled with a 32-inch smart tv. But since i've steeled myself to a 2-year relationship with my note8, i'll have to pass on that enticing offer. Looking forward to next year's note and preorder bundles though.
Anonymous, 12 Aug 2018Oh please don‘t start with this anniversary na again, we had enough of it with the iPhone X leaksYour point being...?
It should be something different if Samsung wants to keep their sales at a decent level.
Samsung sea agent, 13 Aug 2018The price i think is just too much.... There aren't any significant changes to justify this pr... moreActually the changes justify a $70 change. However the price was already so high it didn't need to change.
From an outside perspective s845, 4000 over 3300, best speakers vs ok single one, dual 1.5 aperture, more advanced heat pipe, bt super capacitor pen, and 128gb vs 64gb are not bad. Plus whatever display upgrade they made
Noter, 12 Aug 2018Drop it on the pen hole corner, and bye bye pen .. prefer the sony xz premium and i will target that, don't want to spend that money on some changes, or wait the S10
Ha. Definitely not a better flagship out there objectively.
Funny thing is most people are whining about price when saying that.
But this is pre order which has you dying deals like 450 off trade in, buy get one, or 50% off. So that's not valid.
Samsung sea agent, 13 Aug 2018The price i think is just too much.... There aren't any significant changes to justify this pr... moreYeah, they're pretty bad at trade ins. Grade A phones with a grade A price
The price i think is just too much.... There aren't any significant changes to justify this price... I think customers should wait for S10 series which is going to be released in three versions... Don't ever try the trade in s9/s9+ which is offering $450 credit off.... Unless you want an email stating that your device didn't met the requirements and guess what your trade in device won't be returned!!!
Predictive memorys, 13 Aug 2018Looks like you are very familiar with Samsung, did you see the Samsung skip particular android... moreSamsung didn't push the launch button for Android 9, did they? It looks really bad when the big party trick is a fancy new battery and performance optimizer when the end result is lower benchmark scores and shorter batter life, doesn't it? :)
There's clearly some coding issues with Android 9.0 and I have a feeling there will be a 9.0.1, 9.0.2, 9.0.3 and so on, fairly soon.
Droidtard, 12 Aug 2018So It's basically a Note 8 with "Slight changes". PASS!U do know that SAMSUNG adopted Intel's Tick-Tock method right? I guess not...
AnonD-762416, 12 Aug 2018Yeah, that will be a cluster fudge of a sales disaster. "You don't want a Notch? We didn't hea... moreLooks like you are very familiar with Samsung, did you see the Samsung skip particular android version? If not why saying Pixel 3's Android 9 (Pie) is a terrible, poorly optimised update. Is it the reason Samsung Note 9 still wronged with Android Oreo so you giving the Android 9 (Pie) negative comment?!
Mate 20 will destroy this
They must remove the S+ series at least!
.alpha, 12 Aug 2018Even if you are a Samsung diehard and will get Note 9 regardless WAIT!!! Once iPhone X+, Pixel... moreI won't wait. Three mobile is discounting it by 150 euros on pre-orders. It won't be lower priced than that until next year. All the pre-order bundles around the world are also quite hard to ignore. Be it a Galaxy Watch or 300 buck AKG headphones.
...and I would never buy a two month old second hand phone. Anyone selling that fast I would never trust as a seller.
