And if you didn't touched cameras, it doesn't mean that other people didn't encounter that problem.

ProJames-CHM, 28 Jan 2019But why do you need a solution to the N9? It's a great device! (... moreIt is great. But I always seek better.

I own a Mate 20 X and I absolutely love it. Amazing battery life, great performance, fast battery charge, wonderful large AMOLED screen, great cameras, super fast fingerprint scanner, great dual and the waterdrop notch does not bother me at all.

I highly recommend it.

ProJames-CHM, 28 Jan 2019You are hard to follow. You complain about too high resolution s... moreNo, I just don't exaggerate =)

Btw, here is my "perfect smartphone checklist":

* Good quality front-facing stereo-speakers;
* Snapdragon 670/675/710, 6 Gb of LPDDR4X RAM, 128 Gb of UFS 2.1 storage; more is unnecessary;
* 70 mm width (or more) FHD+ high quality not curved OLED screen, no notch/hole is a plus;
* Less than 8 mm side bezels (but not too little);
* 5000 mAh good quality battery with Quick Charge 4+ support, don't care about wireless charging, don't care if phone will be thicker (Asus ZB602KL has it and it's alright);
* USB 3.1 with Type-C connector, exFAT OTG support, don't care about microSD;
* Fully functional NFC with full Google Pay support;
* Fingerprint scanner on the back, camera placement must be far from FPS;
* Single 1.55 µm 12MP rear camera, single 1.0 µm 20 MP (2.0 μm 5 MP mode) front camera;
* Wi-Fi 802.11ac, Bluetooth 5.0, or better;
* Gestures navigation (Apple/Xiaomi/Meizu style, not OnePlus);
* Black front panel, no fancy colors of back panel;
* IP68 and MIL-STD-810G ratings (or good repairability) wouldn't be bad;

ProJames-CHM, 28 Jan 2019Don't say this Perfs/Price ratio. It's meaningless. Want a good ... moreYou are talking nonsense. I don't need neither SD855 (too much performance for just a smartphone) nor TN VGA display (it's just stupid).

WQHD is useless high resolution, FHD - isn't.

Nicolas F, 28 Jan 2019Why all of you keep saying about changing resolution in settings... moreDon't say this Perfs/Price ratio. It's meaningless. Want a good Price/Perf ratio? Get a darn bad quality Pocophone

You know what? I'll make you the perfect phone. It's a flat, 640×480 TN display. It has a SD855. Happy now? No useless high resolution, high quality display. Will be cheap as dirt.

ProJames-CHM, 28 Jan 2019Lol. So having a higher resolution screen is a compromise? Guess... moreWhy all of you keep saying about changing resolution in settings, when I'm talking about resolution of actual screen. Why should you pay for extra pixels when you don't need them?

What do you mean by "dull device"?

It doesn't look better. And side edges are very small on Mate 20 (not "Pro") too (actually, a bit smaller than on SGN9), which has not only not-curved, but also not-OLED screen. Though it's not that much of a value in smartphone.

Performance - yes. Performance to price ratio - not.

Kiyasuriin, 27 Jan 2019If I won't find any other solution to my note 9 sure. the notch ... moreBut why do you need a solution to the N9? It's a great device! (Greatest goes to A5 2015 in my opinion. A very memorable device.)

Nicolas F, 28 Jan 2019SGN9 is not a "no-compromise" device, because it has: - meaning... moreLol. So having a higher resolution screen is a compromise? Guess what, you can reduce resolution in settings. Or perhaps you want us all to do like Apple and buy a 750p display for flagship price?
Performance is on point. Never tried the SD845 version I take it.
I don't like the curved edges, but it gives a much less dull device. It looks better and the edges are very small. Never encountered any issues with that.
The S-Pen is an amazing tool. You must try it to judge it.
Again, the performance is beyond any reproach. Try it and quit looking at a benchmark!!!!!!

Best phone for me that I have ever purchased. Will never go back to curved sub 7" screen.
