  • Awesome review man!! Love it!

  • I donโ€™t use Samsung why am I here

  • Oof I already have a Galaxy S9 +

  • Galaxy fortnite skin

  • Brooo, moisturize them hands!

  • If Apple decide to make a phone with a stylus like the note 9, the logical way to charge the stylus would be to take it out of its storage slot, plug it into the lighting port, then plug the other end of the stylus into the charger, which doesn't come included with the phone

  • Who wants the fortnite skin?

  • You have more views than samsung's official add!!!!,

  • where do i get that wallpaper

  • Guys i need help finding a phone under 500$ CAD

  • So basically note 9 is a gaming phone

  • When ever I have to buy a phone I always watch one of your vids!

  • --- Colors don't matter because the phone can get slippery so you are going to get a case which will cover that color. --- Samsung's UI is still worst among available. --- The 4000 mAh battery is only good if you are getting more screen usage, if the extra mAh is just spent in powering all those sensors, extra RAM, extra storage and huge display, the battery is upgrade is worthless. --- I can all ways buy a 20$ after market blue tooth remote, would'nt get the Note 9 for this. --- Pen is good but did'nt they introduce it years back and can you not buy one of those for much less price. --- At this point, everyone has a phone with a nice camera. --- Blue tooth headphones have become affordable and more comfortable to use so keeping the 3.5mm jack is of no value. --- Don't know abt u guys but i have a Xbox One S on which i play games.

  • Preordered the 512gb!

  • Fact is ..very little has actually changed since note 2 .just a few small tweeks ....

  • iPhone X slaughters this.

  • cool

  • Love the upgrade that samsung has done with this note but I might just hold off until the next note gotta be something 10th anniversary!

  • great vid. But You can buy other brands with better specs, performance and camera for lower price.

  • Want to like it, but gut feeling says otherwise.

  • Hey MKBHD! Love all your reviews. Any chance you can review some Sonos products like the playbar or the beam? Thank you!

  • Apple >

  • This guy is giving reviews of companies that are paying him, and providing him with their phones lol I think these reviews are disengenuous and highly biased.

  • Stereo speakers?

  • Very good video, thanks

  • More like overhyped

  • Does this phone also have problems with snapchat app which slows down you whole phone and causes constant app crashes

  • Watching this on a samsung s9+ makes me ashamed of my purchase. I want the note 9 now๐Ÿ’€

  • Just preordered got a iPhone X never had a android made the jump for buy one get one free with my gf. Hope we like it....

  • MKBHD, can you please make a video about Samsung Ingenious Ads and what message are they trying to convey?

  • But them android emojis tho ๐Ÿ’€๐Ÿ’€๐Ÿ’€

  • why is the top bezzel thicker than the bottom

  • Unpopular opinion: the phone looks ugly but no one is saying anything so it won't be fixed

  • 512GB is not *over* half a terabyte. It *is* half a terabyte. 1TB = 1024GB

  • Looks ugly though

  • Man what you think about that tick looking Bixby speaker

  • iFans are crying right now!

  • Rip OnePlus .....u will be forever in our hearts

  • Hope the reviews for Galaxy Home and Galaxy Watch are on the way!!

  • Nice chin

  • I guess my patience paid off. Real noticeable upgrade is always around 2 to 3 years. I skipped the Note 7 and wasn't sure about the Note 8 but got the S8 not S9 and now that the Note 9 is out, I got โ‚ฌ400 off by trading in my S8 for the 500Gb and dual Sim version in pre-order. Looking forward to the performance of this device!!!

  • damn i just got the note 8 last year man!! i can't keep up i guess i will sick with my note 8

  • Still using my S8 and it's still a beast itself. No changes here for awhile.

  • Nice NYC shirt. Where did you get it?

  • I'm waiting on the pixel 3 to see if i should go note 9 or maybe wait longer for that samsung x?

  • IP68 water resistance means i can clean it under running water or a bowl of water, right? Is that IP68 with or without pen inside, or is it pen docked only? Yeah, i've ordered it too :-)

  • I currently have an iPhone 7 plus, been waiting on the new Iphone model to be released but after seeing this.... I might have to switch. Apple has been disappointing lately especially with the disappointing ass design of the X. Not a fan of the button on the back but I could get used to it and thatโ€™s LITERALLY the only thing I disliked about this phone so I mean.

  • The problem here is people myself included has been screaming for a larger storage and ram capacity f5omSamsung for YEARS...but they just refused to listen... and only when they finally realized that people are sick of the micro upgrades.. hey let's give them what they have been asking for forever... I really don't want to purchase this phone on protest alone.... maybe if it was significantly cheaper I may but as it stands nothing about it makes me really want to pick it up.... How do others people feel about it?

  • Too much money for a phone that will be updated for how long? 2/3 years? I'm keeping my nexus 6p. Yall people should consider Nokia and Sony at least they keep updating their old device

  • Wow my favourite guy ever my friend you're handsome mature expert youtuber i like you โคkeep it up lol it's sooooooooo weird ๐Ÿ˜‚๐Ÿ’ฒ๐Ÿ†๐Ÿ‘๐Ÿ‘ŒโœŒ๐Ÿ“ฑ๐Ÿ“ฑ

  • Stereo speakers bro

    • yeah I kept waiting for him to mention that but I guess most people use headphones

  • MKBHD is da man! Best tech videos out there! truly stunning! i almost just watch for the true CRISPY ass quality XD

  • I said I was gonna skip on upgrading from my note 8 this year but , I think I'll be gettin me a blue note 9......

  • Love that a headphone jack is now a phone feature. Thanks Apple greed sure does sting๐Ÿ˜˜

  • We need the galaxy s10 plus

  • Man, I wish I could afford the Note 9. Even though I love my Note 8, that 4000 battery, faster processor, and more storage just makes me jealous!

  • How can something even be compared to this, this phone is perfect.

  • I am still on note 3 and love it, been sooooooo long, years and years since it came out, working fine till now, thinking of note 9 for a change ๐Ÿ˜†

  • When people say it's ugly, compared to what?

  • Why isnโ€™t their a Note 9 in the US market? That is stupid!

  • Had my eye on this one, Definite purchase from me. Still on the fence as to the extra 200GBP for the 512gb sotrage and the 8gb RAM though...

  • ๐Ÿงmmmmmmm.... will it blow up this time?

  • I will never understand the insane obsession with boring samsung phones lmao

  • Give me stock Android on it and I'd pay 1200$ for it

  • As long as it doesn't explode! LOL

  • I'm trying to decide between the S9+ and the Note 9. This will be my first Android phone since the Galaxy S2. I've had iPhones since the S2, and I've been happy, but I don't like the direction the next series of iPhones seem to be heading. iPhone losing 3D touch on the next replacement to the iPhone 8 Plus and the loss of a headphone jack: I feel like I currently have the last good iPhone (6s Plus).

  • Even you put it that way, I can see why it costs $1000.

  • If only they made a smaller version. Phuck this phablet trend. Pixel 3 size is looking right.

  • Actually it is exactly half a TB, A TB is 1024 GB not 1000

  • note 9 full review plz

  • I'm debating with my self!!! I want the Note 9, but that would mean I would have to give up my LG G7 ThinQ. I don't want to give up on the G7's features like the Super Bright Display, the Google Assistant Key, the BoomBox Speaker, and Sound (Quad DAC, DTS:X). But then again, I want the Note 9, I want to try its new features. I also want to Review it for my channel. What should I do?!?!

  • I just pre ordered the phone, finally switching from apple

  • For the next version ram the IR blaster back in it and I will buy it.

  • Watching from my Note 8

  • Iโ€™m fine with my iPhone 8 Plus

  • Very well said. I can't understand how anyone could see this as a bad upgrade. I won't personally be going for this as I know how good next year's phones will be, but I would happily have this phone.

  • So let me get this straight. Now itโ€™s ok for a $1000 phone and a phone that will be outdated in less than a year when android p comes out?

  • Why is everyone keeps mentioning iPhone here??

  • Stopped watching at 3:44 Unoriginal joke

  • Hey Marques, can you do an indepth explanation of bluetooth codecs (aptx, aac) and how they interact with audio files eg: aac apple music files

  • Please, make review of Meizu 16.

  • NOTE 9 IS OVERRATED THAN ANY PHONE SHIT THAT I'VE EVER SEEN AND YOU SAY IT'S UNDERRATED. ok 512 gb storage is nice but still

  • Yawwwwn!

  • You forgot also still has a headphone jack.

  • The blowback from the ridiculous prices of these new phones that last only a couple of years due to the battery technology and heat damage done to components is going to hit Samsung and Apple hard soon.

  • I am dying for more space on my Note 8. I have BEEN waiting for 128GB, so I am just gonna get the 512GB unlocked version.

  • Nice presentation

  • Yes

  • Did someone say iPhone X killer...

  • Tempts me to upgrade back to Android from my iPhone 6s.

  • why you speaking slow in this video? :3

  • I want it its purple but it will be at least three to four years before I can get it I refuse to pay more than 200 for a phone a 1000 for s phone is just wrong could have an awesome pc 4k tv and ps4 pro for that price

  • I have the Note8 and have already preordered my Note9. It cannot get here soon enough! You forgot to mention the dual speaker upgrade.

  • I had to read the title again because I was saying this is a horrible review its just an impression because i seen a great review and this phone is a beast

  • Yet another overpriced, trashy, explosive Note phone, getting favorable reviews from everyone and their dog, under threat of remote detonation. No headphone jack. Nonremovable battery, ensuring it'll blow up within a month. And of course, zero battery life. Wake me when they start allowing removable, and upgradable, batteries. Otherwise, US-tv? Stop showing me this junk.

  • Just pre-ordered one :)

  • Price? $1000 for the base model ๐Ÿ˜’

  • I need to upgrade my phone

  • Already ordered but I've just seen the S10, oh boy!

  • "Assuming it doesn't explode"
