GrahamD, 21 Aug 2020Nothing will convince me to change my Note 9 for either of these new Notes.Note 9 was, is and will be the best Note ever. At least until Samsung decides to make one better.
Even now, in 2020 I am considering buying one (second hand). And I don't even like big phones.
Anonymous, 21 Aug 2020Such a liar haha. I count Google and Xiaomi apps as bloatware. You can uninstall Samsung brows... moreYou can't uninstall any Xiaomi app. Only disable them. Also, most of them are just doubling Google apps, that do not bring anything new to the phone.
Is the same kind of bad business done by Samsung in the past. At least, Samsung started listening to its customers after TouchWiz and with One UI is other story.
But, as some people will say, if you do not like how some company is doing business, do not buy their products. And that is what I encourage people to do. In this way the company will understand that they are doing something wrong and they will change their policy.
If everybody is buying Xiaomi phones (just because of cheap prices) and then complain about the bloatware, then is the customers fault too. I did the same, now I know better.
As consumers I think we are winners considering that the prices of Xiaomi are really low especially against those of Realme (at least in Europe in my country). We can buy cheaper device because of these bloatware

Best features: 64mp raw, pen, among first to get apps working in windows and stream Xbox games.
Missing features: 3.5mm jack, 4x+ tele camera, those that could be an improvement over S20's.
Bad features: price, exynos here, battery endurance.

Shanti Dope, 21 Aug 2020The Note 20 Ultra is a fantastic phone, but the Note 20 is just not that great for its price.The note 10 and 20 exists only to make people buy the Ultra versions.
Anonymous, 21 Aug 2020Xiaomi is on the same level. That's your stereotypeUsing a Redmi Note 8 and can't uninstall any bloatware from Google and Xiaomi. Stereotype? Get a life...
I think single take is more of a gimmick in real life use unfortunately. That's a feature that could make me buy a Samsung device. However I already had one Samsung and it was garbage because the touchscreen wasn't working after just 2 weeks. What a shame for Samsung.
Anonymous, 21 Aug 2020I dont like this phone but ads? bloatware?? what are you smoking?Galaxy store has ads, can't disable it. Alot of bloatware too but can be uninstalled. Xiaomi is even worse with bloat.
