Is it REALLY worth the money...& most of all is it a "Keeping up with the Jones" thing or do people with the S8 really need the S9...is there so much extra that you need to spend almost £900 for it.
I was given an almost new S7 Edge ...What more do I need...I can make phone calls on it( You can actually still do that ) & it's got all the other social media stuff that some idiots can't breathe without...why upgrade...& then like some complete planks...Walk around with it in their hands & not in a pocket or bag ( usually have 2 bags) & just right for someone to steal...After all,Would you walk around with £900 in your hand for everyone to see..??
We are a funny bunch aren't we.....All I've said is sooooo true.
It's only going to be an incremental upgrade over the S8 with the major difference being the fingerprint sensor placement below the camera.. I like the back design of S7 & S7 Edge much more than the S8 and the upcoming S9 because it looks minimalistic.. Samsung should've used the underdisplay fingerprint sensor or side mounted fingerprint sensor to make the back design look minimalistic like the S7 series. There shouldn't be a major price difference. Samsung is playing safe with the S9 while holding the big cards for its 10th anniversary smartphone, the Galaxy S10 or Galaxy X, whatever it's gonna be called.
Imagine if you got a scrach on that 1000 euro phone, value will drop in half.
Damn. I'm cool with my $140 Samsung. Will last me 3 years easy. :'3
Mr. Mustache, 19 Feb 2018And iPhone 20 costs minimum 15,000$. you must choose between a house or an iPhone while all ot... moreBy then you'll probably "hire" your phone like TV-companies rent you their setup-boxes today.
In fact I wonder why they haven't already?
Which isn't necessarily a "bad" thing, is it?
Onyxia, 19 Feb 2018And midrange phone will be at least $1299. Can't wait lol.Forget it. By 2028 I expect "phones" to be extinct.
We'll have augmented media portals in glasses with call-functionality build-in. Perhaps even with dedicated augmented tech contact-lenses and hearing aid or in-ear "phone"-parts linked to these AR contactlenses over bluetooth 20.5.3 MXDELP or Wifi-Direct V45.6.
Continues charging will be done by kinetic energy derived from motion or static energy gathered from the human body, transferred to conductive fabric woven into clothes.
pollwanter, 19 Feb 2018Okay...
What do we know so far about the S9?
- the fingerprint-scanner finally has a pro... morehaha are you OK kid ?
- camera is a minor upgrade (f1.5 vs f1.7) over previous model(s)!!??????
It is widest apreture between all Phones and first Phone with f1.5 and it will be a DSLR-Like camera, Super-SlowMo with 1000fps, S9+ will have a seccond Camera and after all you say it is a minor upgrade ? you have no damn idea about Phones and Technology.
Stupid aspect ratio !!!!!!!!!? are you moron ?Do you know what are you talking about ?
since when is IR-Blaster a deal breaker, when was the last time you did use any IR-Blaster ?
Don't get me wrong haveing a IR-Blaster is a positive point but it is nothing to point at it.
and what about AKG headphone ver2. ? AKG Stereo Speakers ? what about new Exynos CPU ?
It's time to people like you stop spreading sh!t.
Anonymous, 19 Feb 2018In 2028, Samsung Galaxy S19 will have Snapdragon 925 chipset. The phone will cost $2269 and S1... moreAnd iPhone 20 costs minimum 15,000$. you must choose between a house or an iPhone while all other phones are around 2,000$ .
What do we know so far about the S9?
- the fingerprint-scanner finally has a proper orientation but is still located too close to the camera
- still that stupid screen aspect ratio that gives ridiculous black bars when viewing media or screencasting on our TV's
- luckily it has kept the 3.5mm audio-jack
- the new SoC is the only real advantage over previous models since both performance and low-power cores are finally upgraded.
- camera is a minor upgrade (f1.5 vs f1.7) over previous model(s)
- it has the same wireless charging
- still no IR-blaster that they flaunt us with S4 upto S6
- it's starting price is a fair amount higher than previous model
Perhaps it's time for a new poll.
Will the S9 outsell the S8?
Buxz777 , 19 Feb 2018You can buy the 128gb LGv30 for 500 pounds , itÂ’s got a great camera , wide angle lens , top ... moreyou're right but i can not close my eye on most horrible Display between all flagships, LG V30 and Pxiel 2 XL (LCD of both phones are from LG) got really poorest displays ever on any midrange to flagship smartphone. It's not so wrong if we say OnePlus 5T got a better Display than LG V30 and Pixel 2 XL.
In 2028, Samsung Galaxy S19 will have Snapdragon 925 chipset. The phone will cost $2269 and S19+ will cost $2329.
if samsung does make shitty battery, their phones can be great with custom roms.
Price aside, I honestly think that the Galaxy S9+ will be the most perfect smartphone to date.
I just hope Samsung would give a minimum 3 major software update to make up for its price.
Anonymous, 19 Feb 2018And i need all that power, because (Not a gamer)?Yeah but phone with say a Kirin 950 or 955 or SD652 (which are also considered "old") still is much faster than anything with an SD625. It's more inline with a SD820/821-based phone and can be had pretty cheap. 300 bucks for a Honor 8 or 9 is pretty good deal with more perfomance then any SD625/SD630-device.
A Galaxy A5 cost about the same yet is slower and has less features (even the Honor 9 itself has less features than the Honor 8, go figure)
Well of course, Samsung must copy Apple in every way, even the bad Apple move of overpricing and then failing to sell the iPhone X. Except that the backlash for Samsung will be much worse than what happened to the iPhone X sales, because Samsung customers have a lot more choices.
