You paid flagship phone prices for a non-flagship phone?

I'm not hating. Phone looks nice but I just looked it up and I'm seeing the price for this phone is over $1,000?

Yeah, because Apple and Samsung don't actively spy on you. Dudes in here are delusional with their fanboy tribalism.
That's the shyt I will never understand. Google, Apple, Facebook collect data and spy on U.S citizens and people scared of international companies spying on them. What can a company across the sea do to you with that info? They have no jurisdiction. But U.S Companies can use that spy I fo on you though cause in are under US juristiction.

This is just as stupid as people getting mad cause an item they bough for 2 dollars at Walmart is crappy and blame it on the country that made it talking about American made would be better when that same item made in American is 10-15 dollar. No duhh stupid motherufcker. You expect something that's $2 to be as good as something that's $15. People out of control with the tribalism.

i agree about the price being outrageous.... but if this isnt a flagship phone, then there literally isnt a flagship phone on this planet.

Huawei Mate 20 pro is the most flagship phone you can get

Definitely would like a follow up after about a month of use. I'll be on this Note 9 for at least 3-5yrs as far as I can see. Just upgraded off a 6S Plus.

sorry guys for not coming back with an update or anything.. been busy and didn't realize anyone commented on the thread.
i'm not worried about the s10 dropping..
i've never liked those S models, always waited for the Note line ups..
I like phone models with the top hardware spec's hence why i've always bought the Note phones so when Huawei dropped this phone with spec's on the same level or better than Note 9 i thought i'd try it out.
As for warranty i had the option to buy warranty through the carrier but it was expensive and i've never used warranty, don't really drop my phone or anything. I'm in canada also because i know it wasn't being released to the US.
As for the price, i've owned Note phones and my wife has bought the last two iPhone X whatever releases now so i'm not worried about the price.
In regards to spying, i could care less, i work a regular a*s job, i'm not into weird pr0n or terrorist sh*t so i've got nothing to hide. Besides now a days what isn't spying on you.
As for the camera, it's amazing, i'm not really a camera guy, i post some sh*t here and there on IG, take family pics really.
The phone itself is pretty beastly performance wise, the battery is great.
I tested out wirelessly charging other phones, works good but it's kind of annoying if you use your phone often, still it works as intended and comes in handy.
Oddly enough it's hard to get use to and figure out coming over from Samsung..
There's little things i couldn't figure out like the lockscreen, if you don't set your on lockscreen the lockscreen image changes at random, if you add always on display with the date/clock that just sits there and sometimes stops you from accesing your lockscreen wallpaper. On the other hand if you don't set the always on display then you just have a black screen and have to click the side button to bring you to the lockscreen. Haven't figure out how to wake the phone by waving your hand over it like on Samsungs.
I Can't get my Google a*sistant to recognize my voice, just sits at the Please wait screen with the colored google circles going around.
The Live wallpapers are insane on it, great feature, however i can't get the downloadable ones to work , tells me i need to update something but it fails to update.
I used Phone Clone to do the transfer, great app worked well and was pretty fast.
You can use 2 sim cards on this phone or 1 sim card and 1 nanosd card, i'm still trying to find the nanoSD card although with 128gb i dont know if i even need it at this point.
Finger print scanner works awesome, haven't tried the face recoginition yet because I hate the one on my Note had, never worked in the dark so i didn't bother with this one yet.

Not sure what else at the moment as i wasn't actually going to make this post any type of review so if yall have questions i'll do my best to let you know how it goes.

Verdict so far i love the phone.. i do feel the Note has more gesture options and little things but at the same time i don't really know how to use this phone yet.
Also i'll be keeping it until the Pixel sorts it's life out or Samsung drops the actual folding phone

Honestly not really the themes are ok, I just got tired of samsung phones and wanted a different type of flagship and went with the last mate pro that came out. I have an iphone 8 and this phone as my 2nd phone. Ive noticed a lot of general things I do not like about the UI though. I miss private mode on my galaxy for hiding all the videos and pictures on my phone in case someone goes thru my gallery lol

pretty sure you can still do that on this.. seen the option somewhere.. i don't really need that so i couldn't tell you of the top of my head where it is..
that is a problem tho.. not a lot of customization or it's all hidden away..
i'm getting use to the phone now and starting to like it more.. been checking some YT vids on tips, good phone, just improved my battery life a bit too

Its in the settings under private space aka Thot Protection. I have mine set with a certain fingerprint so folks only see the blank sh*t when they ask to see my phone.

LOL @ folks worrying about a phone spying on you as if that's not already happening with their latest iPhone and other Android phones. If you're so paranoid, just know that Facebook and Google are also spying on you btw...

Bro throw that sh*t away they say huawei is spying on its users
You know how much manpower and effort it takes to spy on just one person? You think they got time and money to spy on average joes?

haha was waiting for this but technically it's still android just not Samsung..
Only way i'll go back to samsung is if they come correct with the folding phone.

Mate20 Pro's going well, haven't had time to try any apps or customize anything else..
I did put SwfitKey on as the OG keyboard buttons are way to small.
Would like to get some better themes, some more live wallpapers and google a*sistant going, last time it was glitched at setting up my voice, would just say Please Wait, haven't tried since.

Oh and not sure if i mentioned it before but i didn't have to pay 1k for this phone either, got it for $250 or something on promo/help from my friend who's a manager at our Telus store here.. I switched to them as Carrier from Rogers/AT&T. Get 10GB to myself now instead of sharing 12GB with wifey

so far so good.. still have a bug with setting up google a*sistant.. if your in google voice works and if you hold the home button the voice a*sistant pops up and works but if you goto the settings to actually set up the google voice a*sistant so you can say OK Google hands free it just sits at a Please Wait screen with the google colors circling, my buddy has the Mate2o Pro also with the same issue so i don't know if it's an Android Pie thing or what as i've seen complaints searching google about this. So far the quick search i did has not gave any working solutions.

Anyone have any questions about this phone they want me to try..
I'm thinking of putting Nova Launcher on it like Marqueez did but i don't really know how i'd like the settings to be yet.

Do they got a note 9 version of this type of sh*t and can I use it with Verizon. Somebody hit me up that's knowledgeable about this stuff..

I might have an incentive for you if you actually know what the hell you talking about
