    I used to be a HUGE hopper during the Great Smartphone Wars (2009-2011). Kept switching between whatever the latest and greatest phone was (BlackBerry, Apple, Moto, Samsung, HTC, etc). Every 3 months or so. I shudder at how much money I pissed away doing it, but it was fun for sure! Since the iPhone dropped on Verizon its been my primary, but I've always kept an Android as a secondary or work phone. I now work for a company that uses GSuite so having the Note 9 will be perfect. I have always loved the Note series (owned 2, 4, 7) and cannot wait for the 9. I'm using an S8 and it's far too small.

    I have had too many to list and right now I have the One Plus 6. Thought I would have kept it for a while but I always keep coming back to Samsung. It's my cross to bear.

    I am hoping I will be able to keep this one for a while. Of course, I say that with every phone. Ugh.

    I'm using the s8 right now as the s9 didn't bring enough new to the table for my wants and needs.

    After having hands on experience with the Note 9 I'll be buying one.

    It'll be my 1st ever Note phone too.

    Will I get the s10 ? Possibly if it brings more than the Note 9 to my wants and needs tick boxes.

    First Note? Well done on popping your cherry

    I've had all the Note's including the 5 (bought the 920C and CD versions from a reseller in Ireland as we never got them here in the UK); but obviously not the 7 as they deemed the UK to not be good enough users for the Note at that time... That blew up in their face, literally! :P

    I've loved all the Note's; think the 3 was my favourite of the original ones; the 5 was very good, but with no SD extension, too limited (stupid idea) and I loved the 8, but was hankering after the Pixel 2 XL; so sold the Note 8 and bought my current Pixel 2 XL (which is moving on for the Note 9)

    I've had the Pixel 2 XL, iPhone X, and Samsung Galaxy S9+ this year. I had the S8, S8+, Note 8, iPhone 7 Plus, iPhone X, and Pixel 2 XL last year. I know a thing or two about jumping from device to device. I'm definitely looking forward to the Note 9. That'll be the first phone I'll keep for a year.
    Why are you not going with pixel 3?
    I've been on every Galaxy and every Note until the 7...gave that back and went to Pixel XL.. I'm on pixel xl2 abs becoming disenchanted because of a serious lag - but I've been happier for longer with Pixel than any Samsung (usually itching for something new at about 6 months because of the infamous Samsung lag that inevitably happens around that time...) But heard a reviewer saying the s8 and s9 seemed to have the lag "worked out"..

    I don’t notice lag with the S9+, but I do notice the micro sd, 3.5 jack and good sounding stereo speakers

    The notch on the Pixel 3 XL looks horrendous. I'm using an iPhone X right now. I'm so over notches.

    The Note 7 is still the greatest phone I've ever owned to date. Bar none. Besides the battery fiasco, it was literally the perfect smartphone.
    It's quite good but I still like Note 8 more (will be Note 9 soon)

    I forgot about the notch. Bleh. Hey, let’s put something in the way to make content on a phone even smaller! I blame whatever dip$hit at Apple marketing for starting this trend BTW. Notches are so cool! No offense to notchees. My ire is directed at the notchers.

    Hello my name is chuck and i am a phone hopper.

    I thought Pixel had me slowed down to at least yearly episodes of swapping and the Pixel 3 is looking to change that. I have been through and iPhone X back to Pixel 2 X to Pixel XL and now to an iPhone SE. I have been savingup money and one new phone purchase will be coming before Christmas. What is the best 1000 dollar phone to throw my dollars at?

    Note 9
    iPhone X2
    Pixel 3 XL

    or is there something else.
    For me Note 9. I HATE apple and although I liked the Pixel XL I had, I the notch on Pixel 3 makes me cringe.

    Marketing in big companies tend to work in a bubble. Perhaps some are so bubbled, they think the notch is a feature, so want to make them even bigger. Kind of a reverse mullet.

    Wait! I have an idea: Let's get rid of the headphone jack, card slot and add a notch. Bingo! We gots ourselves a hit!!

    I am still torn myself with regards to what I should do. I have the S9 plus, however I just came back over from Apple. Been a couple years. I am still within my 14 days of having the phone and can return it for a 45 day restocking fee.....what do I do? Is the new phone going to be worth it??

    My suggestion is to visit a Highstreet Store that has a working Note 9 on display and have a play with it

    No-one can tell you what you should do but as your considering the change I'm thinking your 80% already there in your mind anyway.

    I skipped on the 8 because of the Finger Print Scanner location.

    I'm definitely a Phone Hopper. lol

    This year alone I had the Samsung S9, S9+, LG V30, Essential and my current OnePlus 6.

    I will get the 9 because it's pretty much like the S9+ with bigger battery and improved S-Pen. The reason why I sold the 9+ was because of poor battery life.
    How do you become a phone hopper? Do you just sell like on craigslist and/or Facebook Marketplace and the like to hop phones?

    For me a phone hopper is a person who does not either stay with a phone originally supplied on a mobile phone contract for full time by selling it and charming phones.

    Or a person who buys their phones outright and changes them either before a year or when the next new model comes out.
