    I don't know what's going on but my note 9 is very glitchy and buggy today. I had a phone call from my husband and I missed it. I attempted to call him back 4 times and it just kept saying dialing. I had to restart my phone and then it worked. Though still the call Quality is horrible. Lots of different noises in the call even when he's on Bluetooth in his truck tons of feedback I can hear of myself with his call.

    Also things are loading on my phone sporadically and not uniformly it's weird. I hope I didn't get a dud.

    Anyone else? After three and a half weeks why would he get worse?

    Mine had a big quirk the other day. When I'd had it about three weeks. Kept shutting windows and repeatedly typing. A bunch of 88888888's. Called Samsung. Wiped cache, still some issue, factory reset: after that, alls been fine. Though the camera in auto mode does still buzz at times

    I've had weird things like that with just about every phone, but so far not with N9 on Verizon.

    I have restarted my phone twice so let's see what happens. So I don't know how to improve the phone part of it. Don't know why it doesn't sound better than it does and why there are extra noises that shouldn't be there. My Note 5 was perfect! This better not end up being buggy and glitchy. Hopefully the next update they do fixes anything that's not quite right

    Normal to have growing pains on a new models that hopefully gets sorted out after a few updates. The price you pay sometimes being an early adopter. Took a few months with my Note 8 with others reporting random reboots on AOD or something like that. Got sorted out and been pretty much trouble free since. You could always wait a few months.

    There've been quite a few firmware updates already, so it would help to say which firmware you're on. The latest for most people (at least in the US) seems to be ARH6.

    Hmmm...don’t see anything for firmware. I do have a baseband version ending in ARH2 with Android 8.1.0. Android security patch for Aug 1. Odd I thought I got one for September a few days after getting the phone.

    Yes, thanks, baseband is what they call the firmware version. There've been a couple of releases since then. ARH4 has "stability improvements", and ARH6 has the September 1 security patch. It's possible that ARH4 fixes your problems.

    Not unusual to get an August update in September unless you have a Pixel.

    Okay..odd...I know I got and downloaded a Sept security patch. It must not have finished or something. I just did one that was there now. Will ARH6 cover for the ARH4 that I don’t have?

    Yes, later firmware versions include all the earlier updates too.

    Thanks...that’s what I figured. By looking at the update it looks like it is only a security patch. Not sure it is going to help with performance
    issues.

    That sounds like a slightly stuck focus mechanism in the camera - it sticks and is still being driven so it buzzes until the lens finally moves. (I'd fight for a replacement - it's still under warranty, and it's definitely a manufacturing defect.)

    Probably not, since there were no modem fixes, as I recall, just security patches until Pie (which was released at the beginning of August ... but Samsung).

    Maybe it's the weather? We lost our power last night for a couple of hours and we had no data (or very slow) with our T-mobile phones and my mom's Verizon S8. Just a thought. Not sure about making calls.

    When I had my string of weird glitchy stuff happen, I ended up factory resetting and only bring back apps as I selected them, did not do any restore of previous apps backed up. It's been fine since. Could be a rogue app. Which is my guess with what was wrong with mine a couple weeks ago
    Maybe an app?

    Some of you people are scaring me with these glitchy issues and battery drain threads as we finally ordered ours yesterday. Hopefully, these are isolated issues and not the norm.
