It’s true. I’m a galaxy note loyalist, but I won’t upgrade my Note 8 to Note 9. No significant improve. Maybe next iphone plus or huawei mate will be more interesting
Mate 20 Pro may completely beat Note 9 on camera, but I'll choose Note 9, the most feature-packed phone.
Huawei needs to use snapdragon CPU then talk . their Kirin chip is always one generation back in performance.
Anonymous, 11 Aug 2018A taste of their own medicine. And the joke is on them. Hahaha. Now what? Samboys, ATTACK!It's comical and factual when Sammy did it. This is just an attempt
Sorry but the note 9 is objectively better.
This might have a better camera in most situations. But if it's same lens and sensor then still probably comes close but doesn't win lowlights.
And faster cpu.
But the note is still a better package
So true, note 9 is overprice while it performs like the s9+ or worst. Who needs a pen to navigate your phone or just to take picture with??? Is it worth that price tag when you can get the same performance with the s9+ minus the pen
Dr. Chillo, 11 Aug 2018Note 9 is literally a joke. The only upgrade was the price, otherwise there's nothing what you... moreSay you're a year into a 2 year contract, you're not going to dump the phone for the Note 9,
The Note 9 is for people out of contract, not the Note 8 owners
Apple have popularized the notion that you need the latest device
Real change or noticeable change happens ever 2 year
BTW the 2019 Note 10 (or talking lawsuits NOTE X) will be a 5G capable phone.
Huawei argument like Apple is specious
Dear Huawei, add features like SD card support, headphone jack, and notch-less screens, then you have the right to criticize others. Morons
I agree with Huawei
Thesis86, 11 Aug 2018Huawei is funny b/c EMUI copied the best aspects of HTC Sense in the past. Huawei is also funn... moreTheres no smartphone camera out there thats better than the P20 Pro in lowlight.
And Huawei gets their displays from BOE
Many phones with Kirin 659 which is equivalent to SD625, not even on pair with 630 or 636.
With last year Kirin 970 there are P20, p20 pro, honor 10, honor 10 note, nova 3. Kirin 970 is weaker than SD835.
P20/P20 Pro do not have EIS for 4K vids, no bluetooth 5, no headphone jack, lower IP rating, low quality videos, ugly notch.
Next year Sammy note 10 would be big evolution because SD 855 n DDR5 ram n special oled screen n Corning glass 6.
The second mocks the first.
No thanks, Huawei. P20 Pro will be my last phone from you, and sold soon. You killed its development community stone dead by removing the ability to unlock the bootloader recently (along with every other Huawei & Honor phone).
Huawei is actually copying Samsung. From saturating the market with basically same phone with minor differences and different names, to mocking Samsung as Samsung is mocking Apple. And 5 years after others, Huawei joined the megapixel race, calling it "real upgrade".
What to say?
It's easy to upgrade if your predecessor is not great to begin with...
