    Lisa, thank you for your consistently thorough reviews. Your YouTube videos are always fun and informative. You have probably mentioned this in a video, but I'm going to ask anyways … do you use two phones or just one and what do you use? I love my iPhoneX, but I'm tempted to get the Note 9 for work using my Google Voice number. Thanks in advance.

    You shouldn't ever buy a Samsung phone when they first come out. They don't retain their value at all.

    I'm still thinking about it. Would love the Note 9 but is it doable? Note 8 is still a beast, I have only killed the battery on it once but it took a while and a lot of use.

    Great video! You are very knowledgeable!
    Perhaps you can help me with a Note 8 issue. I am trying to film a video using my Note 8. I have filmed it at least 8 times now. I am filming it in a horizontal format. I am holding the phone horizontally!!! When I am finished it flips to vertical. I am extremely frustrated. A couple of times I did a test and it worked fine. When I did the real film it flipped. WHY? Can anyone tell me please? I've never had this happen before. Help, please help! lol thanks
