Thank you for this. And what is your opinion on letting lithium batteries stay charging at night? I've heard that it is bad for older phone models, but I'm questioning it for this phone...I haven't been leaving the charger in, but lately I have had to because I kept chromadoze running all night until pretty late in the day (only for a week) because I'm on vacation. I wanted to know the answer to this question for future reference because I know that only a few days can't dramatically damage the battery.😂

As usual great and complete review. I followed every step. I do have a doubt maybe someone can clarify. If I have location always on, won't that use more battery?

Hi. After I turned on my Medium power saving mode the fb messenger's font size became bigger. I need to restart it to return back to same size before. What seems to be the problem? Thanks

Before you set it to Medium you can chose what resolution you want medium to have, that's your problem. It went down from quad to fhd

Thanks for the video. Let me start by saying that I have used phones with 4000mAh (or more) batteries for over 2 years now (mostly Huawei devices). So, I have a mental benchmark that I hope the phone to match/beat. I have a Pixel 2XL (3520mAh), Asus Zenfone 5Z (3300mAh) and my Exynos Dual-SIM Note 9 (I also have my old Note 8 in a drawer waiting to be sold on eBay). I'm a power user + someone who likes to test apps. I have pretty much the same 500+ apps on all of my phones (save for the Samsung specific apps in the Note 9 like PenUP, Samsung Health, etc). Unfortunately, my Note 9 performs nowhere near those levels in terms of battery. Granted its dual-SIM but so is my Asus (with 'just' a 3300 mAh battery on SD845), granted there are 500+ apps, but like I said, the same apps exist in ALL my other phones. On top of this, I use the N9 only in 'HD+' mode (not quad HD), I have downloaded 'Package Disabler' and disabled pretty much everything related to Bixby and then some. Apart from 15-20 apps, all other apps have been marked as 'Always Sleeping Apps', disabled WiFi and BT scanning, tried system launcher instead of Nova, etc. Still, the best I get is probably 3.25-3.5 (and rarely 4hrs) of SoT with around 12-15 hours of overall device on time (for comparison, my N8 which is also dual-SIM but with SD835, gave me 2.5-3hrs SoT with 11-12 hours of overall device on time). My Pixel 2XL (which is another story since it lags like a 2010 phone!) gives me decent battery life. The biggest surprise was my Asus. I did not expect it to last 20+ hours with 4-5hrs SoT on a 3300 mAh and all this WITHOUT having to do any battery optimization antics (unlike Huawei devices which aggressively kills any app in the background, and after having owned 5-6 Huawei devices until the Mate10Pro, I've given up on Huawei for this reason) ! Also, my N9 drains 3-4% per hour in stand-by, it was 4-5% before all the disabling I did, now its 3-4% (I'm actually ok with 1-2% per hour drain during stand-by). So, one big reason for my N9's poor overall battery performance seems to be due to a non-existent doze mode. Since I imported the N9 from HK, I really can't return it. Hence, I'm genuinely surprised when the interwebs keep talking about the N9's supposed great battery life. Sorry about the unintended rant. (PS - I'm still surprised by my Asus's overall performance and amazing batt life, didn't expect it at all.)

This is usless unless if you show a before and after results ya i am doing all these stuff on my old note 3 and it would make night and day difference ,but for a 2018 top of the line device if all these stuff would just give me like 1% performance and like 10 extra minutes of battery then i don't want it

Same reason a gamer would go with an Intel core i5-8500 processor over an Intel core i5 8400, that 0.2GHZ extra clock speed for $35 more lol

Shouldn't need to improve battery life lol (All day battery) 8 hours screen on time what a load of 💩 And you can't speed up a phone it will be as fast as it is out of the box. Pointless crap, Samsung love all of you though 👍

I just bought my note 9 today . Developor options was already on. Could this have been a defected phone ?
Urban Kitsune (4 months ago)
+Steve Gold agreed
Steve Gold (4 months ago)
It sounds like somehow it was returned by another customer and Best Buy passed it off to you. If it were me, I'd request a brand new Note 9. For $1000+, who wants a refurbished or returned phone?
J J (4 months ago)
Came out box with the plastic on screen and everything in plastic bag . Plus it only been out since 24th so its still very new
J J (4 months ago)
Thnks. And I bought it from best buy

I'm no expert but it sounds like someone used it before. I've never heard of a brand-new out-of-the-box Samsung phone having Developer Options being turned on by default.

What about turning on optimizing battery setting on battery all apps ???
Urban Kitsune (4 months ago)
Turning it on for all apps can make those apps run at lower resolutions and can cause all sorts of problems because it can also effect the refresh rate of the app. I did it with pokemon go when I had my s7edge about a year and a half ago and that caused all sorts of glitches a jitters

@The YouTube Tech Guy, You can also save over 15% of battery by turning off the AOD "Always-On-Display.

AOD shud not be off it make the phone look more premium

How do you check your screen on time on yr note 8? Thanks
Krishaang Deep (2 months ago)
Go to device maintenance and tap on battery...then battery usage and screen should be the first thing over tgere
Himanshu Chamoli (4 months ago)
Wow Samsung version of greenify great
Bo Soerjadi (4 months ago)
You might also remind viewers that in Settings you can set it to "block accidental touches". It prevents the screen from detecting touch input while your phone is in a dark place, such as your pocket or bag. Settings - Display - scroll all the way down - check "Block accidental touches". I think that will not only save much in battery use, but it also prevents activating apps unnecessarily.
Rikardo Trevino (1 month ago)
That will have the phone constantly activating its light sensor and scanning screen touches, it will make the battery and performance worse
Andy Akin (4 months ago)
With such a big battery, why would you turn anything off? Curious.

+Mohan Thakur I've disabled background apps when not in use and use black theme and wallpaper. Also continued YouTube and browsing will easily give you 7-8 hours of SOT but regularly turning phone on and off will not. I'm using dual SIM and have 2 Bluetooth devices connected all day, so I'm assuming it's your background activities that's draining battery
Mohan Thakur (4 months ago)
Do you have any special setting. I am getting only 3 4 hours of battery life. If you do, please hlep me too.

Do you know if Bixby can be disabled I heard something about you can accidentally hit the button if that’s the case I won’t be purchasing this phone because of that I have Samsung note 5
Urban Kitsune (4 months ago)
The buttons on the note 9 are removable, so just take the button off if you are really that worried about it
Steve Gold (4 months ago)
On the Note 9, Samsung removed the setting to disable Bixby, but you can easily get around that by using one of two applications -- one free and one not. bxActions is the free one and it lets you remap the Bixby button to something other action like Google Assistant or disable it. Package Disabler (which I believe costs $3.49) allows you to simply disable it. PD is generally a very useful program to have anyway, even though it's not free, as it lets you disable any bloatware or battery-hogging programs you don't want running (i.e. Facebook).
sanjay neelam (4 months ago)
Dnt worry..i have disabled bixby buttton on my note 8..no wonder it will be hard same on note 9. Its a choice of yours.. Long press of bixby button might rise up the application but accidentally tapping even several times won't pop up after disabling the application.
+Akirah Shamie um you might accidentally hit any button if you're not careful. By the way, Bixby isn't designed to be an assistant like Google. It's an assistant for the use of the phone. It's really nice.
Akirah Shamie (4 months ago)
Catherine Adams Yeah but is it on the new note 9? Because I’m hearing you can’t and yes if you’re not able to I will take the phone right back to the store and get my 1250 back
