You know...the irony is, I used to have iPhone mainly before I started switching and I always used to say the same thing, I made the mistake of falling for it though and went against my own advice. I even told myself the note 10 plus was my last samsung and I was swapping to iPhone and at the last minute I've "upgraded" to this. Because I'm obsessed with having the best tech and the specs hook you in and the varying rumours on the iPhone made it seem disappointing but like you say the numbers don't really matter in the real world. I'm just disappointed I didn't follow my own advice.
I think I'm finally starting to realise and value the ease of use over what eppears to be the better product.
I wish I hadn't bothered upgrading to this and was just more patient to wait for the iPhone. But in a way I think this upgrade has made me realise what I want.
I just hope its not too hard to return...the samsing website tells you wrong info on how to return it.
Regretting the move then? I'm considering the opposite move and going back to iPhone. I think I'm going to return this. Having similar problems to you and even compared to my note 10 plus I've upgraded from.
I think I will return it and hang on for iPhone
Apparently there is a bug with the camera software that is causing it to use digital zoom rather than optical which results in the lousy photos when we use zoom.
Totally agree with you about the reviews... people are gushing about this phone left, right and centre - I haven't seen a single review mention this issue. You telling me they didn't notice the ***** 5x zoom shots - or do reviewers get specially patched phones or something?
This does at least give me hope that it will be patched soon.
