    I know that I am in the minority but I love Bixby, you need to know what it does but once you know, it works as designed.

    I love using Bixby too. Learning what it can do is the key to it working properly.

    Love Bixby here too. Once you actually commit to giving a chance, you see how much time it can save you and what an actual help it really is.

    I haven't really used Bixby. Is this like Apple's Siri? It is basically a voice command thing?

    I like Bixby but for me , it's not working as good as it did on my S8/Note 8 for some reason

    Exactly! And there's really no rhyme or reason for that. Bixby should be the same or better on the Note 9.

    No, it actually runs things like setting alarm or other hardware, in addition to dialing out from contacts which works better than Google assistant.

    Right? What happened to Bixby 2.0? My experience got worse with the Note 9 so I stopped using it.

    Left Samsung because of Bixby.

    Heard on note 9 you can program the Bixby button so you have to press it twice.

    To me to move because of an Ai Assistant is extreme.

    Bixby button can now be set to activate only after a certain button press or remap the button.

    Bixby is a very small part of the phones features etc !

    Everyone to their own I guess.

    I loved bixby on the s8. The note 9 not so much, there is something seriously wrong. I can't even teach bixby how I spell my son's name. Which is retarded because that is my most frequent contact yet bixby can't even find it because it defaults to the other spelling of his name.

    Google Assistant can do what you mentioned above, or even better, for example:

    When I ask Google Assistant to call my girlfriend, it will ask who is my girlfriend and it will remember the response and save the info at my girlfriend contact on my phone. So next time when i say call my grilfriend, Google Assistant will call the contact number directly.

    I can ask Google Assistant to play a specific playlist in my Spotify.

    I can ask Google Assistant what is the song I am listening to.

    I can ask Google Assistant to send whatsapp message to any whatsapp contacts.


    Can Bixby do any of the above? I give up on Bixby and never bother to try it further.

    I can't even get Bixby voice wake up to work, no matter how many times I train it. It was the same on my S8 Plus my note 8 and now note 9 so I don't even use it.

    Didn't downgrade.
    Got rid of Bixby, got rid of Samsung Pay.
    And apps I couldn't delete.
    Bixby popping up seems to make a phone bounce off the wall.
    I hate Bixby.
    Use o.k. Google and Google assistant.
    Tried many times to talk to Samsung about getting rid of Bixby button.
    They think it's the best thing going for them.
    Told Samsung I was not buying a new phone just because of Bixby.

    Answer me this, who owns the phone when you buy it. Samsung, carrier, or you.
    If you own it,why can't you delete apps.
    Why can't you get rid of Bixby.

    I have more freedom with the pixel 3 XL.

    I agree... once you learn what it's capable of controlling, it becomes quite useful!

    I haven't used it but I'm considering the note 9. However I rarely use Google assistant now. The only time I'm really in a place where I can yell at my phone to do stuff is in the car. There's generally to much noise and chaos going on at home and it would be way to disruptive at work with our stupid open office and I'm not going to be that guy when I can just pick my phone up.

    I can see maybe if I was on the road in a car a lot or had my own office where I could keep the door mostly shut I might use it more but at this time in my life I have very little use for virtual assistants and I'm hesitant to invest money into a device that in a way forces me to have to get it out of my way. If nothing else at least with Google Assistant you can turn it off.

    All that said it's all about choice and options. If you love it and it works for you that's great. For some of us, myself included I don't have a lot of need or use for it.

    LOL, one thing that kills me. I will say "What time is sunset today" And it will answer it needs the airline carrier and flight number, but if I say "What time does the sun set today" it gets it right....wierd. No way to correct.

    Actually bixby doesn't remember who contacts are. If I say call my son bixby will tell me there is no contact by that name. I say hey Google call my son, it dials my son with out question.

    I even have my son's contact set up in my Samsung account as my son under relationship. Yet bixby can't accomplished this very simple task Google can.
