    Post Love MeI

    I've had two similar heavy cases in the past; in both cases you used screws to fasten the bare metal frame directly against the edges of the glass screen which did not sit right with me at all. Is this the same deal?

    Post Help: Problem with S-Pen

    99% yes. I almost returned my Note 4 before trying the S Pen without a case. Give it a shot!

    Post Help: Problem with S-Pen

    Are you using a case that has any sort of magnets attached (say, a flip or wallet case)?

    Post [PREVIEW]Petition for Android 11 update for Note9, S9 and S9+

    Feels like we need to have this same conversation once every smartphone generation. Recap: Breathing life into old electronics is not good business. Samsung is a business, they're in it for the money. Introducing new features for old phones will not sell new hardware; if anything, it will cause...

    Post Battery Cases For Note 9 that allow NFC tp work

    NFC will most likely not work with any battery case made for the Note 9; the reason being that a lithium-ion battery is essentially thin metal foils with electrolytes in between.

    Post Does note 9 s pen fits in silo of note 9

    Note 9 pen is slightly larger than the Note 8 one - size wise yes, it will fit, but it will likely be loose and fall out unless held in by something.

    Post How to recover after formatted

    As said above, data recovery software is your only hope. Even then, results may vary - you may get back partial images, or nothing at all. It's 2020, people. Use cloud services gosh dang it!

    Post Note 9 F/DS content Bluetooth disconnection HELP!!!!

    It may just be your bluetooth speaker. I have a Kygo speaker that also acts up, but only when streaming audio from my Note 9; I also have no issues whatsoever with other bluetooth devices when using them with my Note 9.

    Post Note 9 Water Damage HELP

    If the water is clean, you may be in luck! Just make sure to dry it out completely before attempting to use it. You can accelerate the process by placing the phone somewhere warm (30 to 40 Celsius, or 85 to 105 fahrenheit - not too hot or the battery may take damage), or by carefully blasting it...

    Post Note 9 Water Damage HELP

    I mean fully disassemling the phone and washing the parts with distilled water. Not a very practical solution. Pool water is different from fresh water; it has lower surface tension due to the added disinfectants, which means it will permeate seals designed for only fresh water relatively...

    Post Note 9 Water Damage HELP

    Water damage is always something not to be taken lightly. You mentioned a pool - it's very likely that even if you manage to completely dry off the internals, there will be residual chlorine deposits which will cause problems eventually; mostly in the form of corrosion and/or shorted out...

    Post Porting the Note 10's s-pen support to the Note 9?

    My money says it will not work with a traditional charging pad. I haven't researched the matter, but Samsung probably uses a proprietary standard other than Qi in charging the S Pen.
