    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 [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.

    Using power + Bixby + vol down to enter download mode has never worked for me. Here's an alternative method: Make sure the phone is off. Plug your cable into your computer, hold volume down + Bixby (do not touch the power button), and plug the other end of the cable in your phone while still...

    Post Best ROM/Kernal for Note 9

    Which Note 9 model are we talking about? If Exynos, there's plenty of ROMs and kernels to choose from in the ROM development section. If Snapdragon, it's likely that your bootloader is locked and you're limited to stock kernel and maybe one or two custom ROMs, and only if you are still on Oreo.

    Post Virus on my phone

    Go to Settings -> Device Care -> Security, and make sure the McAfee-powered antivirus feature is enabled. If it is, and doesn't find any threats, go to Play Store and try any of the free antivirus software available (AVG, Avast to mention two).

    Post Are you upgrading to 10/OneUI 2.0 yet?

    Will upgrade the second the official OTA drops. I'm a non-root user and have been waiting for the battery limiter feature that's finally present in One UI 2.0. Edit: No toggleable charging cap in One UI 2.0. It seems the battery limiter means preventing draining your battery too low when using...

    Post cant get my note 9 into download mode

    I'd first look at the S-Pen. The butt end will click in and out of the pen, and the tip should be plastic that's a little soft to the touch. If the tip is metal, it's most definitely fake.

    Post Galaxy Buds

    This. Trying before purchasing is especially important when considering earbuds, since they're the most affected by the shape and size of your ear canals, both comfort and sound-wise. Since they sound a little different for everyone, you shouldn't just take someone's word for it without seeing...

    Post Does the new Note 9 work on DUAL SIMS + SD card simultaneously

    Very unlikely. Since Samsung has actively blocked it with software, whatever their reason may be, they don't have any real reason to unblock it.

    Super steady video and AR doodle rely on hardware that the Note 9 doesn't have, so the answer is no. Dex on PC should work.

    Post After rooting .. should OEM be activated ?

    It shouldn't reverse on its own once flipped. Sometimes it simply glitches out, and if your phone otherwise works fine, I wouldn't touch it. As for the crashing; I don't think PUBG actively blocks rooted devices, but you should try hiding Magisk anyway and going through all installed modules...

    It's probably just Poweramp getting confused when the phone switches audio outputs mid-playback. Does this happen with every app or just Poweramp?

    Post [ROM+KERNEL+TWRP][Ticwatch Pro(Catfish)(Catshark-4G)]+[Ticwatch C2(Skipjack)[9Aug20]

    If I had to guess, the watch is technically capable of drawing two amps but the charger is not designed for that kind of power. Maybe a third party charger? Eh. Not worth it.

    Post [ROM+KERNEL+TWRP][Ticwatch Pro(Catfish)(Catshark-4G)]+[Ticwatch C2(Skipjack)[9Aug20]

    Do you, by chance, use a computer to charge the watch? I'm not sure whether to blame the watch or the 'pooter, but mine connects and disconnects rapidly and thus tends to not charge very well. A 1A AC adapter does the job much better. Edit: Don't try to feed 2A into it; you'll fry the thing...

    Post NFC range with battery case

    It's likely that the few reviews you mentioned are paid or simply fake. A lithium-ion battery is essentially thin metal foils with electrolytes in between. In addition to the metal in the battery, the wireless charger in the case also features a shield on the backside of the charging coil to...

    Post Can cheap 4$ wireless charger do any harm to Note 9?

    I have a cheap off-brand slow-charging pad that heats up like a troop if I don't lay a toothpick or two between the phone and the pad to air it out. Other than the heat, if it works, it works.

    Post Amazon merchant offering me bribe to delete a mediocre review (just 3 stars I gave).

    Cases like these are unfortunate, but to some extent expected especially on platforms that aren't as tightly moderated. If you felt being petty, the seller's reaction alone would warrant a 1 or 2 star review, but you should probably stick with your 3 star review and just report the seller to...

    Post Living with the faulty buzzing camera module of note 9

    Post Telephoto camera issue

    It's likely that your phone switched back to the primary lens due to a change in lighting conditions when you pointed it downward, which made the speck of dirt on the telephoto lens temporarily disappear from view.

    Post Note 9 failed to mount cache bootloop: Help required

    Post What to consider before Rooting?

    Unfortunately, no. When an unsigned kernel is booted, the bootloader will detect it and trip a physical fuse in the SoC. There are ways to fake 0x0 status when fully booted, but since these features check the actual "eFuse", there's really nothing that can be done short of replacing the entire...

    Post GBoard with automatic pen detection

    Not that I've heard of, and I've been looking as well. I suppose every user who uses handwriting recognition is happy with Samsung keyboard :confused:. On the other hand, now that I think about it, you may be able to use Tasker to automatically switch keyboards when attaching / removing S Pen.

    Post What to consider before Rooting?

    Welcome to the dark side my friend! Your Knox bit will flip from 0x0 to 0x1 - that's the first thing that will happen once you flash a custom recovery & kernel. This means that all Samsung features that check the bit status will permanently stop working; including, but not necessarily limited...

    Post [APP] Official ViPER4Android Audio Effects (FX v2.5.0.5) - New Features & 7.0 Support

    First of course you'll have to delete the existing installation of V4A. If you can't do it the usual way, use any system app remover available on Play Store. Once you've done that, simply install the version you wish (2.5.0.5 apk available in first post of this thread).
