    I'm so tired of the whining about headphone jacks. from all tech review people.

      What's the battery life difference between a 60fps and 90fps (or 120fps) display on a smartphone?

          Yet they can't put back the removable battery. Eventually the battery craps out and the entire device becomes disposable. Same with all the other current generation electronic gadgets with sealed in batteries.

                Most of your complaints can be changed through settings. As far as the speaker vibrating, its dolby atmos and its freaking insanely epic. It actually works. ON A PHONE SPEAKER. No matter where you hold it up you can hear all of it clearly and beautifully. Lay it face down. Try it. The vibrations make it feel like you're in a cinema. Everyone I have shown this too has loved it. My bro switched from the iPhone 11 pro (and he's an apple fanboy with all the gear) and the speaker was one of the biggest selling points. Honestly just seems like you were being really bias. Could be your age lol but, like with myself, the faults stick out more at first and give a negative mindset. You never look that far off when watching something to notice the holepunch, the buttons and layouts, ect. Take some getting used too (most of which can be changed) but today is day 9 and I'm full on with it. Switched from an s8+ and now when I go back to my s8 the difference seem bad for the s8. It's small improvements that take getting used to. The headphone Jack is outrageous though. I'll take a hit to the battery life for a Jack. They also didn't put one on the new fold. WHY!?!??

                    I think if you are in the top 1% of society coming from a Note 9, it's not that great of a leap. But if you are coming from one of the bottom feeding phones, this is a super computer.

                        I've just realized why they migrated the power/Bixby button to the left. For a predominantly right handed society, the right hand can hold the phone in landscape from its top and partially cover the holepunch!

                              They are both overpriced and missing features compared to what Samsung and most other Android manufacturers offer

                              Can ir send signals to so many different appliances to control them. Sure it could be programmed to send music through it or tv broadcasts or w/e is possible.

                                Samsung is going to get a sponsorship with Harry potter, make a game with wands, then laugh at your face as you're playing it.

                                    Why none of the reviewers telling how many Android updates we can expect? I had S6 after 2 years everytime I restarted the phone I would get a message "diagmont has stopped". The experience was terrible. It got slow and was stuttering alot. I heard it's better now, can someone tell me how is the software and how many updates can I expect?

                                          This guy bitches and moans about the changes made to a phone. Then bitches and moans about stuff that wasn't changed. Annoying as fuck.

                                                Note 9 still the winner. Hopefully when it's time for me to upgrade there will be a true feature-packed smartphone like the Note 9.

Id say buy From Apple,Samsung OR oneplus.

                                                                                However, I honestly think the best example for colour accuracy in smartphone displays is the Xperia 1, as it legit is so accurate that it was used as a monitor for the Spiderman Far From Home movie

                                                                                  • Anthony Thomas
