Which is a better choice to get the Note 8 or get the Note 9?

Whenever I try and share a photo, whichever app I choose (like if I want to share something through hangouts instead of text) gets set as the default for that file type. And it is a major pain in the ass to go back every time and clear that default. Is there anything I can disable, download etc to give me the option to NOT have it set as a default every time I want to share something?

This is how I've been using android for years, and I never set default apps so it is a major annoyance.

Ok so I was always hesitant to try a Samsung. I was a pretty die-hard iSheep for many years until Apple's greed and lack of commitment to their customers pissed me off big time.

Since I know that the term "lagdroid" was developed primarily for Samsung I had been holding off getting an Android phone and this was part of the reason my first Android was an LG G4...and truth be told it was the BEST phone experience I've ever had. People complain bitterly about the LG UI but I have no idea what they're talking about.

It was VASTLY superior to my iPhones and to this day I prefer the experience to anything else I've ever had. It was FAST and basically completely lag free.

Then it bootlooped just after a year....and bricked....and LG were completely shit towards me so I swore them off for a while, bit the bullet and got an S7 Edge. Overall, I gotta say it's the best phone I've ever had. I've had some lag, but it's not unbearable, and when you consider the sheer amount of features that you get, I'd happily upgrade to the Note 8 if the experience is the same or better.

But the REASON I need a new phone is because of the dreaded pink line that seems alarmingly prevalent in these S7 Edge models. I can't take this shit again. I paid too much for the phone and I think it should last me worry free, given how well I take care of my devices for 3~4 years.

I want to hear what long term not owners have to say. I cant decide whether it's this or the V30 THINQ. Help a guy out pls.

What matters to me is: - the durability of the phone (I hike and fish a lot and this is why I will never not buy a non-waterproof phone) ...which is why I like the V 30 with it's mill cert shock resistance -Usability of the phone....things like the headphone jack and the SD card are also essential. I can live without the headphone jack but not the SD card support -Camera obviously....The LG seems to be a better movie camera and the Note seems superior overall as an all purpose cam -Speed of processing and minimal lag, stuttering and weird shit (you know what I'm talking about)

I'm leaning towards the note as it's got 6MB RAM, has more supported Apps and has a better selfie cam. Would be very disappointed to get another pink line though...that's enough to make me buy the V30.

Thanks.

I've looked all over and I can't figure out how to fix the grainy/pixelated look of videos when I try to text them. When I shoot the video it looks great on my phone but looks awful on recipient's phone. I've tried turning down the setting but still doesn't change the appearance. From what I've read it appears I have to upload to YouTube and then send the link via text. To me that is a ridiculous process to go through when this phone is so expensive. Don't get me wrong I love this phone but this problem is asinine and shouldn't exist. I use textra and Gboard but those aren't the problem. Anyone have any recommendations to fix this problem? It would be very much appreciated. TIA.

My samsung note8 automatically pausing videos I play (fb/youtube) mostly, it even pause multiple times in a single video. Anyone having the same issue and how do you fix it? Bought this last end of december. I was thinking maybe is it because of the screen protector that is not properly applied on it?

I haven't used Bixby too much but the speech-to-text technology seems inferior to Google's.

Any avid Bixby users here? How does everyone like it thus far?

I think Samsung is getting cheaper by the minute here. Said I missed a day in October which I didn't. Raised prices on items and took items away. Now they add this game for 50 points to drain your stash with "a chance to win 50k points" which I believe is bull. Anyone had any luck with this game? I've spent like 15k points and most I won back was 5k. Once! I think it's a trick to drain your points before they release the note8 possibly?

Testing the Note 8 camera on video capability. Awesome camera.

Note 8's auto focus is super fast, works wonders when shooting videos Just a little disappointed that the 60fps on 1080p does not work on third party apps like Filmic Pro. The manual filters and HDR does not work on the native app. But other wise its very good for shooting videos and vlogs.

Can someone explain this to me. I'm new to Samsung products and I'm not sure if this is normal.

So I was watching Netflix on my phone and after watching for like 2 hours I realized something's off with the display. The color of my text bubble on my viber turned to turquoise when it was originally pale blue. The button thingies when I swipe down also turned turquoise and some images look overly saturated. Did I accidentally press something or is this a feature I'm not aware of? I restarted my phone and the colors went back to normal.

When I go on Google now and press on card I want to read. It goes to home page instead of card I wanted to read. If I press back button I get to card I want to read. Are any of you note 8 users experiencing this?
