    That photo he shows that leaked a couple days ago, is that the new rugged case from Samsung for the Note 9? It kinda looks similar to the s9 Plus Samsung rugged case. I like it. Hopefully better than the Note 8 one which I didn't buy because all the reviews of people breaking their phone with it on amazon.

    The Samsung CEO seems to be doing well in the ladies department assuming that's his girl lol.

    I didn't like how this yellow s pen was looking, but with the blue phone it looks kind of ok.

    Ho hum, waiting for note 10 as this isn't a big enough leap for me. Can buy different coloured s-pen if that's all you want with your note 8.

    Is this response for me or just in general because I don't have a note 8...

    What leaps are you looking for?

    Well in-screen fps (Vivo) would be #1 . Bezel-less (Oppo Fine X without the stupid pop-up) would be #2 . Speaker in s-pen maybe. Rest of Note 8 I'm more than happy with.

    On the In-screen Fingerprint Sensor: Current Rumors are that Samsung is working with Qualcomm's Ultrasound based fps sensor instead of the Synaptics Optical sensor that is currently used on the Vivo phone. Presumably to enable additional features for security and performance.

    Yes, apparently it's a 3D fps rather than a 2D, which will make it more accurate.

    I'm actually fine with the bezels. At least the top one. I like the LED notifications and I don't know where they would put that if they got rid of the top bezel. The fingerprint sensor in front would be nice but right now, I am ok with the location too. It is a little cumbersome but not too bad.

    People put too much stock in "content creators". I mean, I used to watch their videos all the time--MKBHD, iJustine, SuperSaf, Unbox Therapy, Flossy Carter, Linus Tech Tips--but then it finally clicked and I just don't give a damn about their opinions anymore. Get what you want and don't worry about everyone else's opinions on the matter.

    There is a rumour from different sources that the Note 9 might be the Last of the Note Series. It depends on sales! After the Note 8 sales dropped. They are blaming the Note 7 fiasco for the drop in sales. They will just add a phone with an S-Pen to the S series. S10 Plus with pen.

    Yeah they tend to like the sound of their own voices and that's about it most of the time - I saw a video recently where saki was actually driving his car while talking into the camera, I guess mounted on his dash, giving nothing more to the viewer than his opinion, I guess he was bored. Waste of time. Linus is a clown! Flossy, well....and yet thousands, if not millions watch regularly. I will watch like saki how to's but I'm not interested in their banta, just my opinion

    The Note 8 had higher pre-order and sales numbers than the Note 7, primarily from previous Note users choosing to go back to Samsung. The drop in sales was because there are a lot more choices in large screen phones out now than there were when the Note 7 was released.

    The Note series is more expensive to manufacture because it is more than just adding an S-Pen to the S Series. There is an extra Wacom digitizer built into e every Note screen (Tablets that support the S-Pen) to enable the specific abilities of the pen.

    I think also, that new phones are just too dam expensive for people to keep upgrading every year.

    Phone jumpers will justify it... just to have the latest and the greatest... even though what they're trading in... 'probably' works just fine.

    I used to consider myself a phone "jumper". Just not feeling it anymore. Maybe I am not hardcore enough anymore. All other things considered, I might not be able to justify getting the Note9.

    Truth of the matter is there is nothing about the Note 9 that jumps off the screen that would make me want to buy it period......

    I wouldn't say it's about being hardcore.. more just the jump from phone to phone doesn't matter as much anymore.

    Saki isn't over the top. He is pretty honest and just tells the facts. He said people who have the Note 8 probably don't need to upgrade.

    Maybe it's the tone of some of these YouTubers. A lot of them try to sound like the authority on a subject when all they do is read articles on the internet like the rest of us and put them into video form.
    Of course, if you have a Note8 you don't need to upgrade to the Note9. That's common sense. People upgrade because they want to, not because they need to in most cases.
    This is just his opinion based on rumors we've all seen. People just need to understand these videos are just opinion pieces and not news stories.
