    I am a current Note 8 owner. I love the phone. My mom has a Note 5. It's a good phone but a bit dated and she has problems with the camera. I did buy it used for her when her Note 4 was getting even more dated.

    So, we both have birthdays in March. I am highly considering the Lavender Note 9 for me and giving my mom my amazing Note 8.

    Is the battery in this phone awesome?

    Hi @skatergirl

    Just my experience... I find it somewhat, but not a heck of a lot better than my Note 8. I might get an hour or two max more SOT than my N8. And maybe another hour or so more standby.

    (My Mom got my Note 5 when I got the N8. When I got the N9, I couldn't part with the N8, I still use it on WiFi here and there. Maybe when I get my Note 10, lol. All my Notes rotate thru various family members, but they eventually come back to me. Still have the Notes 3, 4, 5 (Mom) and 8.)

    It's a great phone. I had an s8 before and the battery on this phone is vastly better. Easily makes it through a day, and I play a fair amount of mobile games.

    Why not just buy 2 note 9 phone's and give your mother a Brand New phone that will have all of LTE band's your carrier has deployed in your area?

    That's awesome how all the phones cycle back to you.

    I did think about that, but it is her birthday in March and she would love a new phone.

    My mom is elderly and the Note 8 is more than sufficient for her. So, buying two Note 9 would really crush my budget.

    skatergirl - I haven't talked to you in ages! How have you been? Happy New Year! I held off jumping from my Note 8 to the Note 9 when they first came out but in October, Samsung ran a Television Ad offering up to $600 off with your trade-in and that offer was ending on November 3rd. On 11/2, I thought maybe I'd never see a deal better than that again so I traded the Note 8 and got a Black 512GB Note 9 direct from Samsung. It took all of 24 hours to be madly in love with that damned thing. The battery is magnificent, the new S-Pen is sweet, Stereo speakers (FINALLY), faster processor (not real noticeable but you can) and new position of the fingerprint sensor finally works for most hands! The camera, so far, is a disappointment to me... the Note 8 was just as good! Still waiting for that magical software update that solves it... don't let that stop you. It's strictly objective! I still love the phone and would NOT trade back!

    I kinda want to buy the Note 9 now that it's $200 off for the unlocked version at Best Buy. I actually really enjoyed the Note 9 and it checked most of the boxes for a phone (except timely updates). I have a Pixel 3 XL right now but I don't think Best Buy will allow me to trade it in. I don't want to deal with Swappa and ebay.

    I'm just a little sad now that the note 9 has so much discounts! Especially on the 128gb version.

    Makes me feel like I got charged extra

    Yeh I understand I am tempted buy the Galaxy note 9 but waiting on the S10 series and see what the fuss is about it.

    Heck my wife will kill me if I get a new phone because I have changed phones 3 times in 2018 lol.

    But unfortunately that's what phone addiction does to you. 🥴
