The Galaxy Note 9 is not a revolutionary device like the original Note was, but it is without a doubt, the best Galaxy Note ever released by Samsung. It's pricey and it doesn't exactly bring anything new to the table, but it refines everything about the Galaxy Note 8 and adds a number of new features and improvements that makes it a superb flagship smartphone, albeit at a steep starting price of $999! However, if you have a Gear VR, there's some bad news and good news.
Firstly, did you know that the old Gear VR cannot accommodate the Note 9 without physical modifications? Since Samsung did not even release a new VR headset with the Note 9 like they did last year with the Note 8, this is really bad news. The good news is that Samsung has already promised to ship a free Gear VR adapter that will let users equip the Gear VR headset with the Galaxy Note 9. However, the customer will need to contact Samsung's customer care by phone, chat or email and request the adapter. It is expected that the adapter will reach customers within two-weeks of the request or sooner, but this leads to the question, why did Samsung not include the adapter within the box?
