In early 2021, Samsung announced they would start providing four years’ worth of Android security updates for Galaxy smartphones launched in 2019 or later. It is comforting to know your smartphone’s software will be secure, but it also means that you may start experiencing battery life issues before your phone stops getting security updates. Luckily, a Samsung Galaxy battery replacement is a relatively common and inexpensive repair.
If you are planning on buying a new Galaxy Note, you may have second thoughts once you see its MSRP. The Galaxy Note 9 launched in August 2018 with a starting retail price of $999.99. There really isn’t any other way to say this, but that is expensive, which is why Swappa recommends buying a gently used previous-generation model.
