    For all the Note 9 users here, saying the S-pen is so useful. How often do you pull that pen out to use in a day? I am pretty sure you don't even pull it out for more than a week. Had a Note 9 but eventually sold it. The S Pen is a great feature for me, but not useful in my everyday use. Had my Note 9 for 5 months but I can recall I have used the pen for less than 10 times only, 80% o the time I pulled it out was just to test it again.

    I'm an ex Note 2 user and I am still looking for a good Pen alternative... (Moved to Nexus then Pixel)

    I used it all the time especially during meetings. Even bought a HM-5100 which is now collecting dust

    Note 9 user here, and I use the S Pen for writing notes, translating foreign language text, creating gifs, scrolling without using my fingers, and just using it as a fidget toy.

    Typing with thumbs is still better than writing with the S Pen for messaging, and I use the phone mostly for communication so that's why the pen is kept in its slot for most of the day.

    For me I like the S Pen and I'm glad it's there when I need it. I see the S Pen less of a gimmick, and more as an accessory.

    Mi 9 is around the corner.

    Just bought a Mi 8 128 GB for only P17,500 at T&L TeleCom (via Shopee) and I can confirm that with Google Camera installed, the photo quality of this SD845 snapper can certainly match that of the Pixel 3's shots :D

    I'm currently using a Note 8 and a I had a Note 3 years ago.

    I use the S Pen occasionally for mainly two things:
    1) selective screen capture, i.e., cropping a screen grab to the relevant area (e.g., FB post) or doing screen grabs with some annotations
    2) for Samung Notes, when I need a quick and dirty digital Post-It to remind me of things to do, buy, etc.

    So the S Pen gets pulled out maybe several times a month, at most, once a week.

    Note 9 user here. I don't often use the S Pen. I only chose it over S9 since I prefer the less rounded corners of the Note 9, 4000 mAh battery and the fingerprint scanner location. But when I use the S Pen. I use it for cropping/editing images and explaining to someone by illustrating (e.g network diagram). I find the S Pen useful even if I seldom use it.

    Since it's Android... We can expect OEMs to use the traditional three-button layout.

    I always thought manufacturers can make their phones a little bit thicker to accommodate more battery, but this is taking it to the next level! This isn't a phone with a big battery but a big battery with a phone. hahahaha

    Anyone having frequent sync issues on Exchange email using Samsung Email app? I don't know why my Email app gets this issue from time to time. No changes on my phone settings, no new software or security update yet I keep on having sync issues. My colleagues are not having issues so our Exchange server is definitely fine. Removeing my account from the phone, clearing app data/cache do nothing. Unfortunately, 3rd party email apps do not work with our email. Phone is Samsung Galaxy Note 9.
