How long do you plan on keeping the Galaxy Note 9 for?

If you want a big Android phone that can do everything and then some, the Samsung Galaxy Note 9 is still one of the best handsets you can get. The Note 9 is chock-full of software features, its S Pen is more functional than ever before, and its gorgeous AMOLED display is still one of the best we've ever seen.

There's no denying that the Note 9 is a great phone, but with new devices being released all the time, it can be hard to keep your existing phone in your pocket and not go for something else.

With that being the case, how long do you plan on keeping the Note 9 for? Here's what the AC forum community has to say:

if the S10 wows me, I'll buy it. If not I'll wait and see what the Note 10 looks like. I usually keep my phone's until a new one comes out.


12 months.


Two years, maybe three. Should be enough time for 5G to settle in.


I just can't imagine a phone having anything else that could entice me to upgrade. It's the epitome of, the pinnacle of cell phone technology :D


What about you? How long will you be keeping your Note 9?
