I have to upgrade my cellphone, my screen is cracked, it's lagging, it's just time move on. Should I go with the note 9 or the note 20? I occasionally work on music and edit videos when I don't have my PC around, which doesn't happen often but it does happen. Input would be appreciated, thanks

The note 20 will be better in every way except it doesn’t have a headphone jack while the note 9 does. I would say if you can get a note 9 for a good price then go for it, otherwise get the note 20.

I would argue that battery capacity is the major limiting factor to modern devices today. With higher bandwidth and more complex computing stored in either products, you're simply going to drain more batteries for the same usage that you used to.

Long story short: Note 9 has better battery life, while the Note 20 is more powerful. Decide which one is a higher priority: performance or time spent recharging your batteries.

Can confirm about the battery, I've had the Note 9 for just over a year and I can still get 2 full days off the battery if I am not using major draining apps, but normal usage and I listen to Spotify like at least 2 hours a day. I'm impressed by that.

The Note 9 has a lot of RAM, which is probably the most notable thing when using apps, the Note 20 has a more, but probably not noticeable for most users.

Check out your current phone's RAM and compare it to the Note 9. If you're already at 6GB, then you need to think about how you use your apps and if not running a lot of them at the same time can solve the problem you have.

I got a note 20 ultra instead of a note 9. The biggest pull for the note 9 was that it still had a headphone jack. I bought a pair of Bluetooth headphones and I am happy with my purchase.

100% of phones created in the last 5+ years are amazing. Amazing pictures, bright screens, big storage, etc. Sure, some have slightly better cameras, or slightly better screens, or slightly better XYZ, but frankly we're splitting hairs at this point.

When you buy a new laptop/PC, do you buy a $6,000 top of the line simulation work station? Or do buy something be reasonable that does what you need?

Guess what? Every single phone does what you need. Some are a little smoother, but that's about it. Open up Craigslist, and grab whatever looks nice for <$200.
