Did you experience any camera freezes on your 512gb?
Maybe 3 or so times, but not often.

I've found myself charging every other day lately.
Like, afternoon of Monday then mid day Wednesday.
quite the jump from twice a day on my note 5. Especially since my usage is unchanged, except that I've increased brightness from minimum to mid level (and occasionally have to turn it down because it's too bright)

It most likely comes default that way, just as the note 8 does. I never new that till i went digging into all the setrings one day, so he may not even be aware that it is running a lower resolution.

I think it is set to the lower resolution by default by Samsung for good reason(battery life apparently)

Id like to know now that hes been on the lower resolution since hes gotten the phone would he prefer the better resolution and lower battery life or keep the lower resolution and better battery life.

I don't see a point in going any higher than the default on a 6 inch screen. Any "improvement" in quality is not worth the battery, and it's stupid IMO. Not really similar to a monitor scenario where the screen is many times bigger and it might actually be noticeable.

I am in agreement with you. As to why i leave mine on default as well.

I think Samsung default resolution is to reduce premature pixel burn-ins. It something to do with the green-pixels.

You won't notice the improvement with the higher resolution. There is a slight sharpness improvement in texts. It's hard to tell unless you compare it side by side. Use it if you're a purist and want to enjoy all texts slowly in the book you're reading.

I've used both and and default 1080.
Really you dont see the difference outside of 4k video (if you are really looking for it). If you do any vr stuff, then you really want it. Otherwise...not much of a difference.

Battery wise, not a huge impact, maybe 10% a day.

So, general consensus on the Note 9? Worthy upgrade from the S8?

It's the best phone I've ever used hands down. Not sure I'd go from an S8 to it though given the price, but from my S7 Edge it's a huge difference. The battery is amazing, the camera is great, the speakers sound great, screen is awesome as usual, and there is zero lag on it. I leave tons of apps open and it never sputters.

Also, clarification on the above with my camera issue: It's not the same issue as the freezing people report. I haven't experience that issue at all.

The size of the phone hasn't been awkward for you at all to get used to?

Thank you for the feedback. I think this might be my next phone. It looks like it has everything I could want in a CPU, battery life, and camera which is what I'm mostly interested in.

I just ordered my Note 9. Samsung sent me a promotional email so I'll get $600 trade-in value for my S9+, plus $100 off from Verizon. That makes the Note 9 128Gb version $299 total after trade-in. Not too shabby. I loved the S-Pen on my old Note 3 so that's the main reason why I'm up(cross)-grading.

Not too shabby. I loved the S-Pen on my old Note 3 so that's the main reason why I'm up(cross)-grading.
That makes for a nice deal. I would do it if I could get something like that. Enjoy

So been playing with Linux on Dex. It's crazy to use desktop Ubuntu on a phone.
Got my development programs up and running with no issues, pulled in an compiled a project from work almost as fast as my i7 laptop with 16GB Ram...
(Small project, but still!)

Truly impressive.
Haven't played with Dex, does it run Desktop Ubuntu by default when you dock the phone, or do you have to hack it on there, or ... ?

I'm in the Linux on Dex beta.
By default, it's an android desktop experience. You have to install Linux on a partition of the hard drive space. (I allocated 20gigs for it, more than enough)

Edit: Also, end of work day, and 75% battery. I love it!

At this point, everyone on the Note 9 is on Pie. (Verizon in the US just got it yesterday, last carrier in the nation, and possibly the world)
So far, liking the changes. Fixed many annoyances, and battery life has been solid unlike some updates.

Still usually charge every other day, which still kinda blows my mind.

Yeah I'm on Verizon with an unlocked phone and it took forever to get Pie. So far so good, battery seems improved and things are a bit snappier. I like the changes and still love the Note 9.

Verizon is always last. It's because they have to add their bloatware and disable a bunch of stuff they feel that users shouldn't have access to.. Example, is the hidden or secret settings you can get to by entering certain numbers in the phone keypad. (I learned this when I tried to access the hidden settings for bluetooth).

@ NWR.
For me, the Verizon bloat was minimal, they added a couple useless apps, which I could actually uninstall (Not disable, Uninstall!) and....
that's it.

They used to be MUCH worse, but this actually feels more like they waited for Samsung to release the unlocked final Pie version, and include the March security patch.
