    I was so tempted to buy Mate 20 pro and sell this Note 9 off (because of face id unlock and better night shots camera & back plate looks - thats it) but then i would just visit their forums and read the "ongoing issues" - ugly UI, basically useless AOD - I would drop the idea totally and happily keep my Note 9

    Looks like a beautiful phone with nice features but not as established as the note line and doesn't offer anything more for me ...Only way I'll give up my Note is with another Note😉

    Don't, just don't!

    I canceled my pre-order after reading the issues they have. That is NOT acceptable by any means for any phone, be it cheap or flagship.

    I'm currently using the Matte 20 X.
    While the Mate 20 group of phones are outstanding and Huawei keeps improving them each year, I think you'd be just a little bit let down coming from a Note 9.

    I felt similar but decided against too. the note 9 has far too many good features to give up just yet

    No chance for the mate 20 pro in the tournament , the note 9 is very stubborn rival who can do lot more, with added functions of the stylus.

    Had a Mate 20X for three days... Second Huawei for such a short time. I can't wrap my head around how Huawei reverts settings all the time. Beautiful designs, too bad EMUI is so restricted. The longer I'm using my OnePlus the harder it is for me to switch elsewhere. I know the Note line, fantastic device and with the new OneUI coming I'd say they've got the better device.

    ^This is what I keep telling people. Their hardware is great but their software and UI is not there yet. Still needs a lot of work. Overly hyped product. I've used them but immediately don't like them. If they do what One+ is doing they would blow One+ out of the water.

    Their UI sucks and now the chinese versions are blocking third party launcher like NOVA....if this gets rolled out to all the variants, it will be a mess...

    Some like the UI, some don't. Personally, i like it. I like stock android better, but I've used Huawei devices for years. I've gotten very accustomed to it. About the launchers. They are locking the launcher on the Chinese variant due to smaller, local venders installing a fake EMUI launcher loaded with malware and spyware.
    The global version launcher can be changed to whatever you'd like.

    Ran pubg on my friend's mate 20 pro and it was a slightly smoother experience than on my note 9. Feeling abit sad as this is the only aspect I find my note 9 lacking, intensive gaming.
