    I'm glad that you gave it a try at least. I use the Kindle app so I'll look into that.

    Same here. I absolutely love my S10e!! Unfortunately, I’m heavily invested into the iOS ecosystem with work and the family.

    I need iOS for iMessage, FaceTime, AirDrop, etc....There are small work arounds using Android but iOS makes life a lot easier imo.

    It's definitely more powerful than the Note, only thing is it doesn't have the big screen like the Note which is why the S10+ is for and doesn't have the S-Pen for which yes there is the Note.
    If you are wanting a Note experience in upgraded specs then S10+ would have been the better phone.

    At the end you got to do what you like, good luck

    I disagree about more powerful. The Note breezes through things where the 10e did not. That was the problem.

    I had the S9, Note 9, even S10+ for few days and now S10e. Both the S10+ and S10e is much better than Note 9 and S9 in terms of overall performance, fluidity. I mean why wouldn't they since they have the much better SD 855 and graphics chip, and One UI was designed with the S10 series in mind. Personally haven't seen a single area in performance side where the older Note or S series phones are better.

    Anyway if you feel the Note 9 or the Note is more powerful in terms of performance then it's what it is

    I think you just enjoy the Note experience, and there's nothing wrong with that.

    It's still a Samsung phone lol

    I thought it was just me . I've noticed the kindle app acting weird to . It will like flicker and be on a different page or something.
    I'm keeping mine but I have went back to my pixel 3 .
    I don't really like how the power button is so high up. And I don't like that you can't just press the home button to open the phone from sleep like you could with the s9 .
    Also don't like that the AOD don't turn off while in your pocket. That's kinda dumb.
    And of course the camera isn't as fast as my pixel.

    But I do like it enough to keep it. Just not enough to use it everyday. To many little things.

    To be honest if there are that many things wrong...I'd return it while you can.

    It should have a setting somewhere where it turns off if it detects it is in a pocket or if its placed face down. My S7 had that, surely they still kept that feature.

    Well I traded in my s9 for the 550 deal so it's now my back up phone.
    Don't get me wrong it's a great phone but I run my business off my phone so I'm interacting with it a lot during the day. The little things add up.

    There's an issue with the proximity sensor which is causing the AOD to not shut off at all. It's also causing all S10's to have accidental touches and screen wakes while in the pocket.
