    I am curious would a 512gb Note9 be a fair trade for a 128gb S10+? If so would you trade your 512gb Note9 in for it why or why not?

    I would not. The Note is a Note and the S series doesn't compete in the same ballpark. I use the S Pen daily so it's a no brainer for me.

    I do switch from one theme to another when I get bored, or at least change the wallpaper and maybe the icons. A fresh look always seems to help.

    I also don't think the hardware upgrades in the S10+ would be enough to make it worth the move.

    I agree with Connert.

    I would not trade in my Note 9 for S10 or plus... Rather wait few months and see what Note 10 offers... Spen is really handy when needed... And Note 10 will be improved s10

    If you're bored, trade it....just not sure if the S10+ is the phone to trade for considering the similarities (aside from the S Pen). JMO, thinking you'll be bored with S10+ in no time. Sell the Note on Swappa and go off the deep end, get an LG, Pixel, etc.

    If you are bored with the Note 9 you will be bored with anything else out there that looks like the Note 9. You may want to look at something different like the Galaxy Fold, Blackberry Key, Palm, or a feature phone that is radically different. All phones are awesome, however they are all the same...your fatigue is a decade old and will not be solved by a marginal upgrade to a Galaxy 10.

    Can you define how your are " bored" with your phone please?

    I get why people upgrade to a new phone that enhances the user Experience and brings more to the table in the way of features.

    But I've never been bored.

    I have suffered from this issue for several years now. I generally just end up buying a new phone every few months. The only partial solution I have found is to have 2-3 phones I can switch between at any given time. I also recommend something with a drastically different OS, which is pretty much just the iPhone at this point, but skinned Android phones work if they're drastically different. A Pixel is also a great option because you can get in on the betas and try the new Android features, though vanilla Android gets boring really fast.

    I could not agree with you more! All phones are awesome in their own way and the marginal upgrade from a Note 9 to an S10 would still be just as "boring". You will love one or two of the different features for a short time then the fatigue will set right back in.

    The real problem is gratefulness; we get 'bored' easy because we do not appreciate what we have. Geez folks, these little pocket computers give us access to the WORLDS knowledge at nearly any point during the day/night. This is something that was simply science fiction when I was a kid.

    Considering that the alternative is downgrading to an S10+, I think that I will be able to avoid boredom for quite a while.

    Huh. You have a Note9, and you're BORED!? Okaaay...I'm a Note8 user, and I haven't got bored with it. And an S10+ definitely ain't the solution due to how similar it is (just not having the S Pen) to the Note8 & Note9!! Either wait for the Note10, or get a device from a different OEM, like LG, OnePlus, Oppo, or (worst case) Apple, etc.

    "...downgrading". Yeah, okay.

    Having owned and used both and actually having a frame of reference, I can assure you that the S10+ is an upgrade in every way other than the spen, which a lot of people don't even use. It was, hands down, the smoothest Android phone I have used to date. It made my Note 9 feel slow and gave my Pixel 3 XL a serious run for the money in the "responsiveness" department. Also, the wide-angle camera is a big upgrade.

    Go to Swappa. Buy an unlocked Moto X Pure 2015 edition. Unlock bootloader, root, flash different ROMs/themes/etc.

    Works for me.

    Go with a Huawei, Mate 20 or Mate 20 Pro, or Mate 20X. The X is giant, so for most that is out. But I think the Mate 20 is the one I will buy next....Yes, it doesn't have quite the same camera system as the 20 Pro, but it's bigger, and still has the headphone jack and most of the other goodies the Pro has. I currently have a Mate 10(not Pro) it's simply the best phone I've ever owned. The cost of the Mate20 series has dropped a ton on ebay. Even the X can be had for about $700. It doesn't fold, but it's still Tablet size!

    If someone buys something and it makes them happy even for a little while it's not wasting money. It's only a waste if you need the money for other things.

    I have already bought a screen protector and an OtterBox Defender Pro for the S10+, but every time I visit a local store and compare the two phones, I still wonder if I'd be missing out on the Note over the S10+. By the time I do end up purchasing an upgrade to my 6P, the S10+ will no doubt be cheaper, and the Note 9 cheaper still. Obviously, the Note 10 is going to be *WAY* out of my price range unless I wait until Spring 2020.

    I've never owned a Note, so I don't know what it's like to miss the S-Pen. I consider myself a basic user, in that I don't do anything graphics intensive like gaming or benchmarking, and I only take point-and-shoot photos. All I really do is talk, text, stream my music with GPM, watch YouTube videos and visit Reddit and other forums. I probably wouldn't use the S-Pen all that often, but isn't it better to have the S-Pen and not use it, than to need it and not have it? It does seem like the better bang-for-your-buck buy.

    The issue is I'd like to be as future-proof as possible. I'm not concerned about 5G at this point, since just like early 4G LTE, 5G will be a huge battery hog and be initially expensive to use the service. I plan to keep whatever I get for three years, until those kinks are worked out.

    Since I'm a lighter user, I'm concerned with how much battery drain occurs per hour, as well as overnight when not in use. I know it's subjective, but I'd appreciate your feedback and experiences. Thanks in advance!

    Internally, yes. Externally? My Note 9 has better features. Iris scanner, notification light, and the fps is not uncomfortable to use.

    What benefits will I get with the S10 series? Well....... The fps is more secure, but not as secure as multiple secure methods.

    If you are bored with a note, you'd be really bored with the s line. You have the better phone already. August isn't far off.

    If you never had a Note you can't miss it. Try it out in the store when you have time to kill.
