    My wife and I just purchased two note 9s from Amazon renewed. I got a blue 512gb version and she has a lavender 128gb model. Both will be converted to LinageOS as soon as we get them. I like the devices overall however. Have all the features we want on them, and costs are plenty reasonable.

    Does Note 9 have DevBase ROMs? Those are stock Samsung and bloatware list can be added and stock Samsung camera apps are way superior than OpenCamera or other apps. Dunno if Gcam is available or not.

    I have no idea. I know Linage will load on it. That's about as far as I got.

    Problem with note 9 (2018), os updates stopped at android 10 \ oneui 2.5. Security updates are probably continuing for a while. For example, amazingly, my old j7 (08\2017, spare phone) got a 05\2021 security patch. Anyway, not a problem if thinking custom roms.

    Reason for the note 10 lite here is (on top of great reviews, price & functions) it's 2020 release = android 10 out of the box, now 11, listed for 12 & 13. A year on, netguard and a dose of adb, perfect.

    Maybe something to play with > https://www.xda-developers.com/samsung-galaxy-note-9-one-ui-3-1-android-11-port/

    OH well, had to send them back single sim with no esim. When I ordered I totally forgot about that. I need something with dual sim for work and personal lines.
