    Hes had one ages don't let this video fool you That's what these Samsung and apple companies do give so many devices to NOlocal as they know millions of people watch them Fell for it myself over last few years got every phone I could because they supposedly upgrade it every year My arse they do What wifi are you on virgin 500 is only 500mb a second which you barely ever get unless your connected via LAN cable Virgin 1000 most you can get in uk upto 1000 mb a second which you rarely get unless LAN cable attached? I get about 36mb tops walking round the street on Vodafone 36mb like being back in the late 90s

    It's a stupid phone. Backwards moving tech for simple people who are amused by a "novel" retro feel to a $2k device. Who would want a tiny unusable screen on the front so that you are forced to flip it open and have to deal with a crease in the center of the bigger display. The worst part is that this phone is made to break... it's only physics... that's science

    My wife loves her Note 9 and she's simply waiting for the notch/punch hole fiasco to disappear from the smartphone world. I also got her a Spigen and tempered glass screen protector from the very first day. It's literally brand new because of that. Doesn't have even one scratch on it after two full years or heavy usage. For me, It's been a year with the OnePlus 7 Pro, and same for me.

    I'ma act like I didn't see him pull out his note 9 daily driver. Although I am here watching this off my note 9 daily driver. Thought many gave into the notes 10+ & 20U... I'll be on the note 9 til I see a Z Fold note edition, w/S-pen, and a more polished experience in the software development.

    I'll never get a "phone" like this. Technology is going backwards. I want smaller devices with more tech. Not bigger with lore tech. I can't even fit my galaxy S5 in pants pocket barely. Why t.f. would I want something like this that is twice as fat?? You also can't put otter boxes on them so that right there makes it so I'd never get one as well. I have a hard time believing having a folding seem would make it so it's even remotely good at waterproofing/water resistanting. I'll pass.

    Still an unbelievably stupid product. Too much compromise to try and squeeze 2 devices into one. Also for the cost of this fragile piece of junk, you can buy a Galaxy Note 20 and a Galaxy Tab S7 if Samsung is your Android manufacturer of choice. Yes I would rather carry 2 capable devices rather than 1 piece of fragile junk.

    Until they give it s-pen support and capability it’s pointless. It’s just a glorified tablet that folds into a phone. Cool but not no more useful than any other multitasking device out there.

    Sorry but that screen does NOT look brighter. Maybe it's the camera, but still. I've been able to see brightness differences via a video before. So I'm gonna say either this is such a little difference it's hardly visible to the human eye, or there's no difference at all. Lol.

    I will say the thing that holds me back from buying any new tech (given that my 3-5 year, mid range - moderate high end stuff still works) is app aren't as obviously optimized as they could be. I use F-Droid equivalents for most things as i get the absolute best bare bones experience I can find.
