Well, it seems (at least from the current rumors) that unfortunately it won't be really convincing to upgrade from the S8+ & even more from the Note 8 (obviously for the general working person, NOT for the wealthy, those can buy it anyway). So let's hope that the real deal will be "a bit better" (at least) than what the rumours are saying...

The S9 being thicker means there's more good stuff inside, but being shorter and wider is unusual, but I assume it'll be better for watching videos then. But because of the pics, I'm scared the S9 will have side bezels unlike S8, even though it probably won't, but pics are definitley weird.
Thinner phone = lower SOT = less battery capacity. U all had it coming. Probably easier to bend too.

Anonymous, 31 Jan 2018Can't wait for durability test and see if S9 can break in half with that reduced thickness. Can't wait for some doctor to certify that you cannot read or you are blind ... lol ... S9 is 0.4mm thicker than S8 as per the article. Didn't u read it ?
Many people fail to comprehend that S9 is thicker than the previous model. Must be some good stuff inside!
Even if the design don't change much look at isheeps with same design over years...

I agree width, readable writable area is 0.4mm bigger as on V30, shih is better and longish look is broken, It must be more to 1mm. Rest no use to change front 8 to 9 foolish!
Hey look, another rectangular slab just like the others, which does the exact same things the old ones have been doing already. Only faster and shinier and 3D-ier.
Seems innovative enough, I guess.
Many will put this phone in a thick fugly transformer style case anyway.
One of the reasons you drop your phones is lack of grip and slim design is one of the slipping factors.

I want bigger batteries and much better cameras, cause I want to use my smartphone as a smartphone. For people like you they could create ultra thin phones only with display, no camera and even smaller batteries.
I wouldn't mind haveing a thicker phone that has bigger battery, maybe better thermals(more space for a heatpipe) and a headphone jack
MarcioR, 31 Jan 2018Dam, it's so fat, fatter than my old nexus 5... All that for water resistance and qi charge? ... moreBecause of consumerists like you we have those shitty and totally overpriced phones of today. Too small batteries and only mediocre cameras that can´t compete with Nokias that are some years old.
Oh cmon people, stop bitching about the thickness! 8.5mm is not thick at all. Even my s7e with armor case is not feel that thick.
