    I'm nuts! I used to have the Note 8...I've been through so many phones as I know y'all have...and I thought I was content with my 2 phones....but nooooo....I miss using the Note and Samsung pay so now I'm obsessing over either the Note 9 or waiting for the 10. I think what got me started was when I first started having call quality issues with the Pixel. Don't get me wrong...the camera is astounding with the Pixel 3xl...and overall it's a good phone but it's got some issues...I guess they all do. So anyway...sell me on the Note 9....

    The fact that you have money to blow having two flag ship devices already, I would say why not get a third. On the plus side, you can get a note 9 fairly cheap. But it's a good phone overall, good battery life, and has enough tools to do practically anything.

    Wait. In 5 weeks they'll unveil S10+

    Seems like Note 10 will break the bank

    Then again Note 8 with Pie might be someone's sweet spot.

    So I've been trying to steer away from iOS for two years now and always crawl back, but I think if any phone is going to get me to stay away from iOS it's the Note 9.

    I've always struggled with finding that perfect Android phone, I thought it was the pixel and although it has the best camera it has a lot of other issues and things I just don't care for. Hardware is lame, the pure Android experience is just as boring as my iPhone, call quality and speaker quality isn't the greatest.

    The note seems to hit everything on my wishlist, except the size. I don't want a huge phone and while it's the biggest phone out, the hardware of the curved edges makes the phone so manageable to use/hold. I tried an XS Max and hated the size/weight. The note is really comfy to hold and operate it is so impressive. Also, battery life, Samsung pay, s-pen, theme customization, AOD customization, I can go on and on! And yes, you can get a great deal on a used one now on swappa.

    Thanks! I hear ya on the points regarding the Pixel 3 XL ...the call quality has had issues. I had reception issues with the Xs Max. Sheesh won't these manufacturers get some quality control under their belt?

    It seems like the easiest part of a phone (incoming and outgoing calls) can't be perfected!

    I have the 3xl, xs max and note 9 and am using the note 9 right now.

    It ticks more boxes and it's just a cool gadget so you may as well power buy now. March and the S10 are just so far away!

    Wait about a month and grab an S10+ and hopefully a Note 9 even more discounted than they are now, subsidise the purchases by selling the 2 inferior devices you have now, then upgrade to Note 10 later and subsidise that by trading in or selling the Note 9

    One thing I miss about the Note series now that I've switched to the Pixel (the 2 with Camera 3 is good enough for me) is that you can stow the stylus in the phone and always have it. I have styli for the Pixel, but I'm always leaving them all home.

    As for Samsung Pay (or even Google Pay), it might be nice, but I shop at Walmart, and their POS terminals allow their app to scan the QR code and you're done. (I get to a terminal, scan, put the phone away and start ringing stuff up. And I'm still waiting for the local stores [they did discover the 20th century, so there's hope] to install the software in the store that allows me to use their other app to scan as I shop, then just scan the QR code and I'm done, everything already scanned and bagged.) But other stores? I've shopped at one other one in the past year, and I'm going to be shopping at another one one of these days - and neither one has NFC card readers. Neither do any of my doctors. So Samsung and Google Pay wouldn't do me any good.

    But my Note 3 still works and, with the replacement battery (it's over 5 years old and, no matter how good you are with batteries, you can't close the case on a swollen battery even it it does still hold a good charge) I could have it up and running (and clipped to my belt) in less than 2 minutes. I still have "stylus envy".)

    But if you're jonesing for the Note10, and you can still pay your bills after you buy one, who are we to tell you how to spend your money? Go for it. And enjoy.

    Yep, fixed my note 9 and sold it. Had to go through 2 note 9s that had the same exact problem. Worst Note experience EVER and I had every note since note 3. I am now using pixel 3 xl. Love it too. Will hold out until Note 10 to see if that stupid camera module design issue is gone there.

    Camera on pixel 3 xl is amazing. Happy with the phone for the next few months
