Me too. I actually was looking forward to the Xiaomi 9. But the lack of OIS, headphone jack,IPX and a tiny battery mean Xiaomi Nein for me!

They used the same main camera and telecamera from s9. Way behind competition where you are now getting persicopic 10x hybrid zoom. And still adaptive fast charging? Really samsung? -_-

Adaptive fast charging is fast my galaxy s9 charges at around 35-45 minutes from 0-100

Samsung has this "If something ain't broken, why fix it?" mentality and it's worked for them for a while now.

Looks nice. Not a big fan of the punch hole selfie cam but it’s better than a notch. I'll give it a look when it lands in stores.

Yes indeed.... I see myself trading my unlocked sprint version and keeping my Verizon version.

Oh yeah 7 more months, it's going to be a long 7 month, give or take a week or so.

Why? Sammy has been making the last several notes a s_+ with a spen and a slightly bigger battery. See the s10+? Tack on 200mah more and that's the note10. Not a Samsung hater, I have a note, just disappointed in the direction they took the line. It used to be testing grounds on what we would possibly see the following yr

And that has made them the best phone on the planet.

Yes. And don't put a dumbass hole in its display.

Beautiful looking devices, but a hard no because of Android. Put iOS on these are we'd be talking.

Why would you want to cripple the device by putting less capable & limited OS?

15. Krazyass69

Then the hardware's capability would be useless just like the A12 so much power but can only do basic task.

Like unlimited 4k@60? So basic that it's the only phone that does it...

Incorrect, S10 does it too according to a Samsung rep. First to add HDR10+ recording to that as well, which is arguably an even greater feature. Since long video takes are utterly boring.

We'll just have to wait and see if S10 is able to film more than 10 min.

Comments like these are so pointless. That's like saying, "The Camaro looks good, but it's a hard no because of the Chevy engine. Put a Mustang in it & we'd be talking." Just get what you want & keep it moving.

You're missing the point, which was to say something negative about Android.
