    I got the 8/512 version of the Snapdragon Note 9 with the intent of keeping it as my daily driver for at least 4 years.

    What's your contingency plan when it comes to replacing the battery?

    Right now have the Note 8 and Note 9 active on 2 phone lines. Note 8 is due for upgrade in April. I'm waiting to see how good the camera is in the S20 before I decide. I might get a Note 10+ as I've owned every Note, may get the S20, or could wait for the next Note.

    I'm in not rush to upgrade, have no actual need to, I just love tech.

    I've carried Asurion Extended Warranty through Verizon for many years and it has paid for itself with replacement phones. Know what? Phones are getting much better and I've gone a full year with nothing done to my Note 9. Amazing, eh? And I'm a very heavy user, business. When I need a new battery, I'll go to Ubreakitifixit, talk to Verizon, and see if they'll step up and maybe split the cost. Who knows, they might. Anyway, Note 9 is still rocking big time. And guess what again? Haven't even received Android 10 yet! From what I hear, that's OK. There are some major issues with the update! Android 9 has been rock solid. I don't need any issues from a new update! I'm sure neither do you.

    My next phone upgrade will not be a Samsung product. Not because I dont like Samsung but because there are too many really good options for phones with amazing specs and half the price.
    No more spending 800+ on phones for me.

    Well, I had planned on getting one from ifixit, but it would seem that the Note 9 battery is not as readily available as the S9.
    I found a couple other sources.
    Thanks, for getting me to look!

    I've had the Android 10 update for 48 hours. Only cleared the cache partition afterwards. Decided to wait and see whether a factory reset would be necessary. So far I've no complaints whatsoever. Exynos unlocked version. West Africa.

    I don't like OS updates. However, if one doesn't update the OS when it's available one ceases to receive subsequent security patches. I'm still awaiting the January patch. On both my Note 9 and Note 10 Plus.

    I have the 8/512 as well, though the unlocked version. I'll keep it until it's absolutely dead. I love it, it's working great, I can't afford $1000 every year or two and frankly, I don't like the 'no buttons' thing. I have a wish list for someday when I replace this one, but right now, I don't see that in the foreseeable future.

    I saw the Note10 launch and... got myself a Note 9. In many ways it's the last true Note.

    And I'll only expect to buy a new smartphone in 2021, maybe even 2022. To me appears to be the perfect smartphone.

    The Spen adds a of convenience when it's needed. When it's not, it completely disappear inside the Note. So no disadvantages.

    The only thing I miss now in 2020 is a ultra wide camera.

    I don't use the S-Pen a ton, but miss it, when I'm driving my S9 around. Without it, there is no way, that I've found, to select and copy text from stuff like pictures.

    I bought an unlocked 8/512gb Note 9 and used it for only 6-7 weeks before getting the Note 10 plus 5G
    It was a bit stupid buying the 9 when I knew I would not be able to resist the 10+ anyway but it is a nice backup phone to have

    I'll probably keep the Note 9, unless the 11 gives me a reason to need to buy it.

    I get my phone's through Verizon & 2020 is my upgrade year. I'll definitely be moving on. I love my phone, but I get bored. I'm gonna try to wait till Thanksgiving sales. This year the new S10s & Notes came with a $400 gift card. I think that's worth the 3 month wait. I can't go sub-par after having a Samsung. But if Apple comes through & revolutionizes things (I know, they promise it every year.) I could be persuaded to switch. I need my S-pen, so the iPhone will have to be pencil compatible. Even then...

    Hell Yes!!! I intend keeping my Note 9 until I'm due for an upgrade in the second half of 2021.
    Even then, I'm going to upgrade to another Note (I love my S pen)
    Someone in my family is going to get super lucky and extremely happy because I intend handing my note 9 down after I upgrade.
