    So on my note 8, I had a small temperature icon in the top left that I liked for getting ready in the morning. It would also show on my lock screen. Now I can't for the life of me remember how I got that. The only weather apps I've had are stock and the weather channel. Anyone know? Thanks! Love this phone!

    Edit: found it!

    The Weather Channel App "NOT for Samsung" gives you the Temp but "FOR Samsung" doesn't! Why? Don't ask me that one - I just saw your question and noticed mine had disappeared and I had just switched to "For Samsung", so I re-installed the regular version and as soon as I clicked "Open", the Temp was back! Goodbye "For Samsung"!

    Today I discovered that by holding my phone while sitting in the drivers seat (parked), I can reach the right passenger rear door light - and push it to shut it off when one of the kids accidentally leaves it on.

    I have a '17 Dodge Charger, meant to add - it's a pretty big 4-door car so this is a good reach .

    The "Swiss Army Knife" of Smart Phones... virtually and physically!!! You could probably use it for self defense and knock somebody out if you had too, also! (with my UB Pro Case, it's damned near indestructible)

    I've discovered that after looking at this screen since 11/28, I no longer have any use for my pixel 2 xl.
    I had a P2XL prior to the Note 9.
    I thought it was the phone I really wanted. I waited until the used came down to what I thought was a reasonable price. I was not impressed by it.
    I've been nothing but impressed with this Note 9.
    I was researching the wife's next phone. I'm her "tech support" as she says and a phone junkie. My coworker tells others, "he is like a computer geek, but with phones".
    I decided on the Note 9 for her. I got a barely mint 128 on Swappa. We just can't justify paying $1000 for a phone.
    Through all of the research for choosing and setting up, I started to get enamored by it. It's a really great phone.
    So, I was really digging the wife's Note 9 and all it could do and theming options and thinking that I would like one, if it could be rooted, but it can't, at least not in the US, AFAIK. I have had a rootable phone, since 2012.
    Then I found out about the 512 GB version, WITH EIGHT GIGS OF RAM! It was game over. So I found a mint 8/512 on Swappa with a Whitestone protector and a bunch of cases (I'm also a huge case junkie), for only $150 more than the wife's 6/128.
    I have been thoroughly impressed and have no regrets. Now I'm researching what all the S Pen can do.
    Colour me happy!

    The 2 XL was the phone I really wanted and I was very impressed by it despite what the tech community had to say... until I started using the note 9 with all the additional features that it brings to the table.

    With the toned down Samsung experience, this is a major win in my book now and I love it.

    I agree! I've been away from Samsung since rooted S4, about three years ago. I had a Note 3 very briefly, but couldn't get into it. This phone is awesome and I can't even root it!

    I did the same thing! i had an iPhone and my wife had some LG phone, we were both upgrade eligible, so i started doing some research. While searching for the new iphone, reading all of it's reviews, i came across an "iPhone vs Note 9" review. As i started reading about the Note 9, all of it's options...i figured that i would go to the store and play around with the demo, mind you, i didn't even hear about the Note 9 launch except for hearing that people were logging in to the new Samsung phones to get some Fortnite skin (?). So i go to the store, i play with the iPhone Max for about 30 seconds, nothing new, so i go across the isle to the Note 9 display...i was literally on the demo phone for about 20 minutes, if not more!! Being that i was with apple for so long, i forgot about all the things that you could do with an android phone, and the S-Pen?!?! i love the fact that if i'm taking notes, stop, and my screen locks, all i have have to do is hit the S-pen button! i'm usually one who masters his phone in the first week or so, but this phone???? It's been over a month since i've purchased it and i'm still unlocking it's potential!

    Before deciding on the Note 9, I came quite close to buying a Pixel 2XL. I feel I would have had the same reaction as you. I've felt that way with previous IPhones and previous Google/Huwai phones.

    Biggest changes for me. Pie controls were helpful for my LG v20 because it was so big plus I like more screen real estate, no difference with the note 9. Unfortunately the navigation bar still comes up when the keyboard is open, hopefully that gets fixed or a mod comes out for pie. Finally, Google keyboard, Google messaging, and pixel themes all make this device look like a pixel aka aesthetic AF

    i discovered that it is almost impossible to find a case that protects the edges of the screen well... sure all of them come with a bottom and top lip but the lip does not exist on the sides... on the sides the screen is usually higher than edge of the case..with luck you can find a case that is flush, meaning any falls that land on the front sides and your screen is cracked.

    I know this is design because of the curved screen, blah blah, and the edge apps, blah blah...

    I remember years ago looking on ebay for an s6 edge and what stuck out were all the damaged phones with impact cracks on the curved edges...

    I use my note9 a lot at work while walking in hallways etc...so thats my worry..

    I think otterbox made a good one for the note8 that protected all screen sides but now not so for the note9...plus those things are crazy expensive...(and yes dont start with bay 60$ to protect your 1000$ phone is nothing...the point is there are no alternatives).

    I have found that Speck cases are slightly higher on the sides than the screen. Whether it truly makes a significant difference, I don't know. But it makes me feel a bit better.

    I can think of two Otterbox alternatives, Supcase and Armadillotek.
    I've seen other full coverage cases on Amazon, but are not familiar with their quality.

    Agreed, it's not pretty, but I've always run the Supcase/iBlason Unicorn Beetle Pro case and it affords excellent edge coverage as well as end coverage. I've dropped my Note 7, Galaxy S7 Active and Note 8 while housed in these cases and never had an issue so, of course my Note 9 is in one!

    I've discovered that this is the most difficult smartphone I've used to press and hold something. The screen moves under my finger. It usually takes three or four tries to get this simple task done.
