Not if that flagship is a Note.

This phone is going to suffer sh*t battery life and performance. 

Performs great and I'm regularly getting 2 days out of it.

Yea, I don't get why anyone would buy a flagship phone tbh. All you get is better performance and better camera which means literally nothing on a phone. You aren't going to be regularly rendering 4k video on a phone or play any demanding games (Do people seriously play pubg on a tiny phone screen?). Camera quality is good enough on even a $100 phone. Anyone who actually cares about image quality would own a stand-alone camera.

Mad phone but I'll stick with my Note8. The only thing I'll probably miss out on is the much better battery life on the Note9. 

 

2 things though;

  • Bixby button can be disabled in an upcoming update 
  • When you put it up against the OP6, that Note9 SKU had the Exynos 9810 if the "SM-N960N" model number is correct. 

As a little bonus though, "Did it explode? Nein."

Apparently, one allegedly did in New York but the amount of information is so thin and said info is so fishy that I wouldn't be concerned

To be frank though, the likely person who would buy a Note likely already has several use cases that would justify the huge price.

 

I've said it before. Have me use a Redmi Note 5 or Nokia 7 Plus and for most of the time, I'll be very happy to use them. But every now and then, I'll miss whatever extras I have on my Note8, whether that's the S Pen or whatever features Samsung slaps onto their phones and software UX.

 

Is that worth 2-3x the price of the Redmi/Nokia 7+? Of course not from an objective standpoint. But if I actually use those features or if I want the very best for my needs, the unfortunate truth is that I'll have to cough it up. The Note is currently one of the very few phones that meet my usage requirements.

 

But my point is this. If you're just using your smartphone for typical smartphone things, then the $200 Redmi Note 5 will serve you just as well as a more expensive phone. It's not the best in anything, but it does a more-than-decent enough job for most of them. But if you actually use everything a smartphone has and then some or you somehow want the very best, then there are more expensive options, albeit with diminishing returns.

Did it explode?

Not yet. Tho I doubt it would or if it does it's one in a million, I doubt Sammy would let it happen again.

 

I also find it a little odd Oppo wouldn't put NFC into a phone they plan on selling where it is used... I've got it on a $400 unit and I love it.

 

As for PUBG no thanks... Pokemon GO has claimed dominance in the category of battery vampire...

It's not really about those things. Not for me.

 

I upgraded from an S7 to Note 8 because over the past 3 years I use my PCs and laptops less and less at home. My phone is my main computing device, and I'll use the Switch and PS4 for gaming.

 

What makes the Note useful me

- Screen size

- RAM

- CPU to drive everything in all that RAM

- S Pen for more precision tasks on non mobile friendly sites or believe it or not apps (SSH, Remote desktop, etc)

Cringe. They could literally put feces in  a plastic bag and say it's Samsung galaxy/note ''insert number'' and some people would still buy it.

Likely true for the note but sadly most units sold on the top tier end is done by social sheep... Which is how Apple and Sammy like it...

Yes people do play it (never seen anyone however, more PoGo lol) tho I doubt 100 million have downloaded the app (and/or actually used it at least once)

I personally wouldn't trust a $100 phone for anything other than a kids toy, I owned a $120 LG phone several years ago, very basic android phone but I would never go back to it or anything in the 150 or less category. So the person you quoted about $300 I would say is the baseline for any one who uses their phone daily for more than talk and text, might be able to push $250 but that's a per situation base.

 

Yes buying a stand alone camera is best since a tiny lens can only do so much but social sheep have taken over the planet and.... The opening lines in this video are perfect.

Go back in time 15 years everyone owned a standalone, FF to today almost no one has one. Maybe in 100 years phone cameras will finally surpass standalone units, but we'd all be dead before then xD

Well, the people who would likely buy a Note probably knows their phones

I know multiple people that bought the Note 3 because there wasn't a good selection of large phones at the time. They didn't know jack about phones, but they're all repeat customers now

Why? I owned a $60 LG phone between 2016 - 2017 and the only complaint I had was it had slightly too little ram since pokemon go would crash every once and a while, but i'm sure a ~$150 2018 phone would be plenty powerful enough if my $60 phone just barely wasn't. I got a (free) LG G6 in mid 2017 and can't see any reason to upgrade it in the next ~3+ years. Checking emails, processing credit cards, and playing pokemon go doesn't require much hardware to do. Idk what else people do on phones that require more power tbh.

Pokemon Go runs nicely on 2GB ram tho it does lock up from time to time but that could be the game itself. The reason why I won't go back to a sub $200 phone is mainly lack of features. No under $200 phone has NFC, finger sensor (some do, but if they act like the Stylo 2 Plus one I won't want it) or a 1080 screen. You might say you can't see the true 1080 like you did with 4K but it's not just that, it's the pixel density. So you throw in a 720 screen with a pixel density of 75% the amount that you're used too on a screen thats smaller it will look like garbage.

 

Also a 2500mah (I know there are a few that have 3000) battery wouldn't last me the minimum of 2 hours in Pokemon Go, granted my battery barely can handle 1.5 hours but that could have been due to it being summer.

 

Then there is the fact your camera likely records at 1080 but you can't view it at 1080 which is great because the cheapo camera in the unit will look better at 720 over 1080... While I don't use my front camera at all I do need a decent sensor and lens for the back for times I need to send pictures on the fly for various non memory keeping reasons (or unexpected ones, since I don't own anything trust worthy that is slim enough to carry).

 

My next phone will need 3GB ram at least, I've decided to keep my Stylo 3 Plus for at least 2 years (because it is far better than the 2 plus), even if I need to buy a new battery for it. That said maybe next year we will see NFC in the sub $200 but I doubt it.
