      Congratulation Murtaza.

      But that's a huge sum paid for a mobile device.
      I will look forward to that short review, especially some close up shots (in room lighting, if possible) and other stand out features.

      The Note 9 actually launched at a lower dollar price than S9. Also if you have a older flagship their trade in offer is a no profit deal mostly for them. You might ask how, well you get the set with official warranty at 116k PKR remove from it the market value of your older phone. But if you go buy a brand new one directly you will know the price is above 120k with official warranty.

      Also you must realize our currency has taken a massive dump and our taxes on expensive phones have increased considerably.

      Do they decrease their phone price over-time or will the Note 9 be a gazillion rupees in December too?

      @murtaza12, hey congrats man. Phone of the year. Period.

      On a side note, can you plz confirm me something? I am hearing a lot of reports of Note 9 slowing down/lagging randomly. It's a minor lag, but the hiccup is definitely noticeable for a phone of this .... level. Did you notice anything?

      Thanks man.

      Well performance out of the box was pretty good, although there were some minor bugs with the first build, and it seemed like it needed some polishing. They did rush the release, so it's understandable. However, very soon after, one OTA was pushed, which was just a security patch.

      Then another update came, with some camera improvements and a different kernel (earlier builds were using the same kernel). This build was never released outside of Europe, until about 2 days ago. Got released to UAE, PAK, AFG, and some other regions.

      I couldn't wait so I had downloaded the entire firmware and flashed it earlier. No issues whatsoever, not with performance or with battery life.

      TL;DR, it was a bit weird at release, but they fixed it and it's all good now.
