This is good. I'm glad Huawei did this. Samsung has been doing the same kind of insulting marketing against the iPhones. Now it's their turn to get hit hard.
Will it have EIS for 4K?
Will the 4K be better than 24Mbps?
Will it have bluetooth 5.0?
Will it have at least 550ppi?
Will it keep my data safe from chinese government?
Will it have useful gpu?
Huawei is funny b/c EMUI copied the best aspects of HTC Sense in the past. Huawei is also funny because their P20 Pro couldn't even record 4k at 30fps and the video stabilization was bad. Even more funny, a Sony camera just topped theirs for best low light performer because Huawei's aggressive over-exposure makes the pictures look too unrealistic. I mean Sony? A company that hasn't profited in mobile in years, had a better overall camera than the P20 Pro? Huawei is dissing Samsung, but getting their screens from them too? And I don't even like Sammy...but Huawei needs to sit down. At least Sammy didn't betray the dev community the way Huawei/Honor did.
The Scientist Pigeon, 11 Aug 2018I sold 10 handsets in 2015,
I sold 10 000 handsets in 2016, the business is now 1000 times mo... moreOu-la-la! Bravo on the excellent comment!
I do agree with every single word written here! Imo Huawei did an excellent leap forward but definitely cannot compete against a note.
And why is that?
For a ridiculously simple reason every person knows.
What is the key feature of a galaxy note? The big screen? Nah, it was just a bonus, though it did launch the arc of Phablets. The answer is simple:
NATIVE SUPPORT for a digital pen. Otherly known as the famous S PEN!
The moment Huawei, Sony and OTHER brands launch a handset with a built in pen only then I can call this a compatitor to the note. Otherwise it'll just compare to the S family of samsung.
"Imagine what will come next"
These words excite me. You cannot mock others if you yourself do not have something to brag about.
This is called a real generation upgrade, that can't enter the US market.
A taste of their own medicine. And the joke is on them. Hahaha. Now what? Samboys, ATTACK!
I sold 10 handsets in 2015,
I sold 10 000 handsets in 2016, the business is now 1000 times more profitable
I sold 100 000 handsets in 2017, the business is no more profitable as I just collect 10 times year over year.
"This is Huawei's logic for progress calculation"
Note9 is the last step in current generation of Samsung category.
Next Year is Samsung's evolution year as this year was Apple's.
Huawei did not understand the point.
If Samsung wanted to made Note9 way more superior than S9+, then the problem of Note 4 would hit following year's selling point.
What was Note 4 Symptom?
A truly powerful SoC which was SD805 + Removable 3220mAh Battery + Removable storage + IR + MHL 3 which makes Note 4 a true flagship of its time.
How about next year? which is always happen.
Glass phone + Same performance as SD805 in Note 4 + No removable storage + No Removable battery + Downgrade the capacity to 3000mAh + Neither IR nor MHL
which makes Note5 a disaster.
Omit Note6 in order to be on par with S series.
Samsung made everything possible to retain the lost respect, but!
Battery malfunctioned to turn the innovation into fiasco.
Note8 was almost Samsung's phoenix which rose from the ashes.
Note9 is the last effort to keep Note on track.
So, If anyone imagine that Note9 must do magic or be superior to S9+, then the critic is unaware about past, present and upcoming future for Next generation.
Apple made change to its line up and Chinese followers.
Samsung need to do something in order to catch up already market wise successful apple.
The positive points in Note9 are limited for some fans/customers but are enough for business users.
A business user need 512GB capacity to carry video documents and record footage regularly in best available quality in order to extracts high quality 4MP (QHD+ Screenshots) photos in no time for further calculation of matters.
A fair comparison with available models are Note9 vs. Mate RS PD
Which one is superior?
Kirin 970 or E9810/SD845?
Regarding Photo/Video which RAM amount is more sensible to keep loaded data available to call faster 6GB or 8GB?
How about IP Rating; 67 or 68?
Display is stretched, so there is no difference in my opinion .....
Removable + 512 is better or No card slot?
2160p@60fps will collect more details in fast paced scenes to extract photos with high quality or 2160p@30fps?
Stereo or Mono?
3.5mm or USB?
USB 2.0 or 3.1?
In Camera department and fast charging matter, Huawei has a lot to say, but to what extend?
These 2 superiority cost you 500 more money than Note9?
Is it fair!?!
Performance + Innovation = Usability
First of all Huawei must introduce a phone with the same or superior functionality then Note9, then run the campaign.
sarkar the govt, 11 Aug 2018samsung already mocks apple with there adds now its huawei ...now whose next....aggresive play... moreYou have an extremely romantic picture of how it used to be. Mobile was as hostile back then. Nokia churned out new weird looking models seemingly every month back then, too.
40 megapixels in a phone camera is idiotic. Should be 12-16 with the focus being on noise reduction in low light. Also talk is cheap.
- have broad worldwide LTE coverage
- have a large notch free screen
- have a camera that can shoot relatively noise free pics in low light
- have a real headphone jack
Is that so hard?
Anonymous, 11 Aug 2018Let's agree to disagree. They're second in terms of phones sold atm, just behind Samsung, so ... moreThat's the point, they are second... they want to be first but there's nothing special they can offer so they start trash talking. That's how it works nowadays - you can be popular if you are getting people attention. Flagship phones are so similar in performance that you easily could say that my phone is better and no one can prove opposite because you put one megapixel or one more camera lens even if it doesn't make any difference. It's better because it has something more...
Its true, the note 9 was a mediocre upgrade...
Whereas the upcoming Mate 20 will come with 7nm SoC which will be the fastest chip on the android market... along with the best camera shots with 3 sensors. They will also have a bigger battery and better design.
Dr. Chillo, 11 Aug 2018Note 9 is literally a joke. The only upgrade was the price, otherwise there's nothing what you... moreLet's wait and see what they have in store for the Mate 20 Pro. Unless they bring back the headphone jack, microSD slot and improve their phone video recording quality they're all the same : meaningless upgrades but higher prices.
I hate how the market is becoming a mock battle.
To me the huawei "upgrades" (talking about top tier) are their super saturated pics, their lack of SD card support, lack of headphone back, and the awful notch, no thanks.
The only two things I like about them is the true monochrome sensor, and the feature-rich UI. For the price they're usually good, but if the mate 20 offers just performance, b&w, and a custom skin I can't justify the price with cheaper Samsungs around.
