    My mind WAS made up on 512gb Note9 in blue. Now I'd prefer black. What I would REALLY prefer is the 512 model IN STOCK at Best Buy or VZW store. I do NOT like to order a phone not knowing when or if it will arrive at the store. I don't want it delivered to my empty home.

    Thing is now I read the Note camera not as good as Note 8. Lots of fuzzy pics. Also read about jerky scrolling like my Note7.

    The thing is I can actually BUY a 256gb iPhone without hassel or waiting and it seems to have fewer complaints.

    Awesome, give update on reasoning once you've solidified the choice and purchased. They're all pretty good phones.

    My wife got a XS. Fewer hassles? Him, not so sure. Lots of issues with software, apps not notch compatible etc ... far from a well working device.
    Now, coming from a Note8 I can tell the camera improvements are significant. No issues with blurry pictures. And the battery life is so awesome.
    Having that said, I do not use certain malware such as Facebook and other social media crap apps.

    If you chose the unlocked variant you are free from carrier specific modification and software and have a high chance to grab one at BB.
    But why would you stick to the 512GB? Get the 128GB and a decent SD card. 6GB of ram is plenty.

    Deciding between a iPhone and Note9 tells you don't really want the SPen and all its magic, so why would you even stick to the Note at all?

    How much is the 256GB iPhone XS Max and the 512GB Note 9?

    Here it cost just over $2,000 CAN each for both.

    I bought the 128GB Note 9, blue for less than $900 tap-in AFTER the $205 trade-in and when you consider the retail value of the bonus IconX wireless buds.

    Now the 64GB iPhone XS, gold I got for $1,100 tax-in.

    I also have the Huawei P20 Pro but now I'm just bragging. Sorry. LOL

    My point is both OS are great they have their advantages. One thing I kept saying is NO FLAGSHIP is worth over $1k retail. I wouldn't have bought neither if I didn't get the deal I got.

    If you do the math I was lucky and managed to own BOTH the 9 & XS for less than what OP wants. Doesn't this make more cents.

    BTW I had the 512GB/8GB Note 9 and I cannot tell the difference between the 6GB version so I returned it.

    Buying the 8GB IMO seems to be just bragging rights.

    It seems that in your heart, you really want an iPhone, that's why you are searching for everything bad about the Note 9, and you will scrutinize all these bad things if you do get a Note 9, further convincing yourself it's not as good.

    I will say go for the iPhone.

    The best time to buy an iPhone is Feb/March. In part because iOS needs time to hammer out bugs. iOS 12.1b5 is better but that dropped last night. Like to see 12.3.

    I keep iPhone X around to check out and play with, something small and light.

    The Galaxy 10's sound exciting. If or when 2nd gen 7nm chip.

    If the iPhone Max had a stylus, rumors surfaced and I waited to see, and 6GB for goodness sake... but not happening.

    I ordered from AT&T for Note9 and was here next day.

    I don't think you'll be unhappy with a Note. Even my $300 Essential One is nice spare, runs Pie, and lighter. Almost perfect size.

    Wait for 2019 for iPhone. It needs to. Maybe the S9+ or another brand to hold you until this time next year and play this game with Note 10 and XS Max.

    The Note9 is heavy but I assume that is due to 4k battery. Of course plastic is a lighter material better suited for the back but that battle like the horrible curved screens has already been lost to Samsung

    I left the n9 due to its poor battery life and camera issues which they still have not fixed. The max I have now destroys my n9 in battery life. I don’t even have to think about it my battery will last. It just does. 5-6 hours of sot with the n9 and 10 plus with the max.

    You ought to be ashamed of yourself. Double the battery life is unsubstantiated - can you share your data?

    How long is the battery runtime. 10 hours plus for how long between charges.

    I get 8 hours average per 60 hours of runtime.

    My only real gripe is the camera. Wanna see what happens with the update.

    Someone hasn't been hanging out at iPhone forums it seems.

    Also, in Apple's rush, none if the newest iPhones should be running less than iOS 12.1. iOS 12.0 is no longer signed. Only 12.01 or above, until 12 1 is out of beta.

    Am curious what you were doing that ate your battery so much? I am able to go all day and still have battery left when I put it on the charger. I use it moderately so it isn't like I am babying it.

    That's the thing with any mass produced products, be it cars or phones: there will be those that work flawlessly and others that will fall short of the mark. I had an LG G4 that delivered problem-free service right up until the day I traded it in to Samsung for a monster discount on the Note 8. Not a boot loop in sight. When TMO discounted the LG V20 with the launch of the G5 I had to go through 3 before I got one that was worth the price of admission. The 1st one had audio problems while taking videos. The 2nd one had some sort of bug where the OK Google voice command would activate but froze when it came time to provide the requested result. The 3rd time was the charm with a great device that has worked flawlessly since it was unboxed over 2 years ago. Whatever device you choose make sure you put it through all its paces during that window of return and if you have to bring it back do not let them give you an insurance claim unit because you might end up with some refurb that will produce even more headaches down the road. My Note 9 takes great pictures and there is no lag or issues with blurred snaps. This is the first phone I've had that met my needs to the point that I didn't feel the need to add the Google Pixel camera port. I'm very satisfied with the performance of this phone on all levels. It's too bad that others with the same product can't say the same.
