The Critic , 13 Jun 2021What has the Note 10 or Note 20 lost? 3.5mm jack? The Iris Scanner ? The note 9 is 3 years old... moreI have both the Note 9 and Note 20 Ultra so I can compare well. Note 9 has 512 GB internal memory + SD card, that is more storage than Note 20 Ultra (!!). A lot of people (if you didn't notice) really miss the 3.5mm jack. I don't because I have Buds+ but still, it is a feature that got removed. Also wired earphones sound way better than Buds+ even with Note 20 Ultra type-C earphones. Next, infinity display was removed and there is an annoying punch-hole camera on the front (it's even bigger on the Note 10+). Then there is no iris scanner as you said which was my primary method of unlocking the phone. Much more secure than fingerprint that barely works on the Note 20 Ultra. They also removed the notification diode that I found extremely useful. Now I have to use Always On display which consumes much more battery and still I can't see the notification there as clearly as on the Note 9. Additionally, there is no more hear-rate + stress sensor and you have to buy a watch - more battery consumption because BT has to be always on AND YOU HAVE TO WEAR A WATCH even if you don't want to. And brace yourself, that watch doesn't even have blood oxygen measurement that the Note 9 sensor has! Another issue is that speakers on the Note 9 sounds absolutely fantastic but Note 20 Ultra sounds like the sound is coming from underground, it's not rich and full anymore (probably because they had to lower the size of the top speaker). Next, they switched S-Pen position - now it's not comfortable to use as previously. If that's not enough for you, they also switched the bottom speaker grille and it's now on the other side compared to the Note 9 which means you block that whole speaker with your hand when gaming; this is extremely annoying. You could turn the phone upside down but then you have that camera cut-out on your right side and some game elements can be blocked or when there is a black bar, you have to reach further to control the game -> unusable. And last but not least, the phone gets even more hot than the Note 9 when gaming - and Note 9 already gets pretty hot. Also overall battery stamina is much lower (just see rating on this website for both devices). The only aspect of the Note 10+ and Note 20 Ultra that is actually better is the design but that's not enough for me which is why I will have extremely high expectations from the Note 22 or whatever it is called and if it doesn't deliver and check all the marks, then Note 20 Ultra will sadly be my last Note ever. They have plenty of time so they better do it right. PS.: those were the good times when our biggest problem with the Note 9 was the missing IR blaster. I still miss it from the Note 4, it was one of the (many) greatest features Samsung had on the market and the magic I could do with it with my TV or in stores when shopping was just brilliant. Of course, that feature didn't come back with newer Note phones.

Leaving the he... moreNice to finally see someone who has no gripe with loss of 3.5mm jack from the premium devices and appreciate the benefits of wireless headsets. For those who makes this an issue just buy a midrange phone while the world moves on. I have been using wireless headsets for 8 years now. No regrets and sound is wonderful

The note 9 is 3 years old so why buy a 3 year device? The Note 10 plus is a beautiful phone.....12 Ram stock 256 internal memory and large 6.8 screen for viewing media and playing games and the battery life is better than the Note 20. If you so like the 3.5mm Jack better you buy a A Series but if you want a value for money phone which will get a few updates then the Note 10 plus is a good phone to have. I have it for 1 year and 2 months and no issues but seeing plenty complaints about the Note 20

Ricochet, 06 Jun 2021Why does this phone heat up too much? :(Maybe it's the exynos chip
I'm writing this to share my experience on Note 20 and Note 9
I eventually purchased the Note 9 Snapdragon version (dual sim 8 GB RAM with 512 GB).
What I liked about the Note 9:
- Fingerprint is absolutely amazing
- close shots are better with the Note 9
- Outdoor brightness is better than Note 20 ultra surprisingly under direct sun light
- Grip and hold is better
However, I ended up going back to my Note 20 Ultra for these reasons:
- fast, smooth with the 120 Hz
- Bigger screen is useful
- indoor brightness is best. Outdoor brightness however Note 9 is better
- Software and update is the latest
- No Note 22 expected this year
Hope that helps someone deciding between both
I am using this phone from 10 months and already changed display which costs a lot of money. curved display is not user friendly. Its more sensitive then flat display, type c port is not comfortable for playing audio.. audio needs 3.5mm jack ..phone companies are making flagship phones without thinking costumers proper demand ..
Why does this phone heat up too much? :(
I bought a 12/256GB few days ago and my battery is draining badly despite I am not at all a heavy user for example I just charged now 100: and in just signing up and varfication and all that my 5percent battery is gone which is weird, I just want to ask is it only me or? and yes Darkmode, adaptive light, low power mode every thing is on . it is frustrating I got for about 1050bucks

I get 3% drain in 9 hours over night I'm on the first firmware , never updated mine. More than happy. It ain't broke don't fix it.
I am in Iran and I bought this phone at a high price (250,000,000 Rials) but in my opinion Ultra 21 is a better option.
I had trouble with my voicemail on this phone but one call and this nice verizon person got it fixed
Just a week ago i posted how good this phone is and now it let me down.i charged my battery to 100% at 12..just over 2hrs later without touching it or using it for anything the battery is gone down to 83%..that means it drained nearly 9% per hour instead off about 1%.i have nothing on no bluetooth no wifi no internet no location no nfc.basically nothing is switched on and the battery is draining fast bear in mind i have this phone only 2 weeks now..extremely dissapointed as this phone in South Africa costs nearly 2200$(R34000).all updates are done,evrything is on the latest version yet it is draining so fast.at this pace the battery on standby only will last 10hrs without touching it which is ridiculous.i guess i should of went with the S21ultra instead of this and now im stuck with this phone for anothr 2yrs till my next upgrade.i love the phone but this is not the first samsung to let me down with the battery.my Note 8 and Note10plus was the same.very very sad and let down.i wish nokia would come back then bye bye samsung for me.
