User opinions and reviews

If you're ok that it won't get new major Android OS updates anymore and only security patches, yes still worth to buy this flagship. It's a brilliant and fast phone with a very good camera and all the benefits of the s-pen.

phone winning in populairty

I really like the black bar on the Note 8 as it's clean but I don't like it on the Note 9 as the cases on the latter look horrible like "T" shape.
