It's no surprise at this point that the Galaxy Note 9 has a lot going for it. There's the huge display, all-new S Pen features, iris scanning, etc. However, one goodie that is easy to overlook is the revamped Bixby 2.0 experience.

The Note 9 is the first phone to ship with Bixby 2.0, and with this upgrade, Samsung promises faster performance, more contextual conversations, and deeper app integration. All of that sounds great, but how does it hold up in the real world?

Here's what some Note 9 users have to say about Bixby in its current state.


When I had the S9+ I tried it, not bad surprisingly I used it a lot. I guess I liked the points system. LOL Now with the 9 I set it up. No more points system? Anyways my first use was a joke. I said "open Messenger." I did... Using the Internet app, Googled the app. I'm done. LOL

I use it , I say good night and it turns my alarm on and optimizes my batter at once. Also instead of going in and setting brightness. You can say Bixby set brightness 80%. So many things within the phone you can do with it that other assistants can't do. But it does lack things that Google can do also


I use it for certain things and has improved but mostly use GA since have google home as well.


Bixby is alright. But admittedly, it was a bit more polished on the Note 8 in terms of ease of use, setup and voice recognition. THE Bixby experience is not exactly the same between Note 8 and Note 9, IMHO.


What about you? Do you use Bixby on the Note 9?
