It seem than Samsung deactivate the 2x lens of my phone in the 0ct 12 2019 update !!!
Now it's just a numeric zoom / crop of the wide angle lens you see when you zoom past 1.999x ..... :(
Edit: When I said the Note9 has a great front/ selfie camera, great is too strong a word, I meant very good for a front facing selfie cam/ up there amongst the best.

after up date note 9 front camera resulation will be 5 mp.
why samsung pls solve this problem.
pls take care the customers problems.
In the first look it is a great phone with great specifications....but there are some problem with this phone the first one is when you are trying to download over 4g network it becomes really hot that you fill its gonna get fire.....the second problem is software updates..when you update your phone after the update you should do a reset factory setting setup if you not the battery will drain very fast and your phone will get hot easily...and another problem which you may face with it in middle east countries is the VOLTE option that another phones like s8 to s10 plus has but the note 9 wont support.and another big problem is the weight which is 201g and your hand will get tired after using the phone for long time.
at last note 9 is a really graet phone but for the people who know how work with a super powerful smartphone.

Also there is Samsung community & Samsung members.

Who in their right mind would put a settings button where the emoji button was when typing a text message?
Every single update to this phone has made it more difficult to do anything with it. Not just do hard things.. it makes it harder to type a message. And this one thing has definitely just pushed me over the edge! Who was that UI specialist??

Swipe down from the top of your screen twice to reveal your toggle icons, look for the S Pen remote icon (it may be on the next page of icons).
You can either:
Tap the S Pen remote icon to turn it on.
Or press & hold the S Pen remote icon to go to it's settings page.
Or if for some reason you didn't find the S Pen icon then go >Settings >Advanced features > S Pen.
If it isn't paired then follow the instructions (you may need to swipe down from the top of the screen to see these notifications).
No it shouldn't do this, I've never had any problem with anything, but from looking back in this thread I can see that it is a known issue & they've had the device repaired for free under warranty, please contact Samsung Support, details are on their website.
Awesome phone, I am a heavy user but it still serves me for 12hrs or more. But I cant seem to figure out the problem with the spen remote it doesn't connect even if it is still in, and also the camera why is it vibrating I don't understand. Everything else is great. Only two problems please answers tnx...
Gody, 30 Sep 2019Is heat dissipation good on this phone? It gets hot but cools off really fast

Cover it with finger.. You will see your finger for a brief moment and then because of lack of light camera will be switched to the main one and your finger will "disappear".
This is still properly working camera.
When not enough light phone uses 2x digital zoom from the main brighter camera
Does the front camera set to default 8 mp after September update? Or it's still on 5.2 mp?
Mad, 03 Oct 2019Which model/model number. Mine is 960F/ds and it is working properly after the updateMy model is 960f/ds and first camera from the left doesn't work like tele zoom camera, yet it works like "live focus" camera.
After the update of september, 2019, it slow down on booting and restart again. Done the hard reset, still with crappy booting. Is this your marketing strategy?
