Realistic1, 05 Sep 2018If you have S8 it's probably not worth it to go for S9, and S9+ is whole other story tho.
Sam... moreOn the S9 & S9+ you can remap the Bixby button to launch different apps or actions, there's an app called bxActions.
There's also been a bit of a backlash with the Bixby button on the Note 9 as this is currently more difficult, discussions with Samsung are happening right now, and we'll know more by the end of this month:

Samsung should also make phones that don't slow down so fast. And with less deisgn problems (Bixby) or at least actually listen their customers and allow them to reprogram Bixby button for something else.
S9 at least has better fingerprint scanner position, and stereo speakers.
And iris scanner is useless.
Samsung claims they listen to their customers by not adding a notch, or removing headphone jack and SD slot... yet Bixby is still here...
Exynos chipset has more peak performance but sustainable performance is shit.
Just like Apple A11.
Meanwhile Qualcomm has learned something from QSD 810 fiasco and they prioritize sustainable performance and developed far better co-processor like ISP, DSP, DAC and Neural Engine.
We'll never see QSD jump to 3500 geekbench single-core score in the future.
Since the S6, only the S7 had stuck with the flat screen. Wish that they new Galaxy series from the S8 forward would offer that option. Much better to work with than those stupid curved edges.
Samsung , either you add a better GPU design or simply buy a license from snapdragon for the GPU
20% less GPU performance is not acceptable when Apple is already faster than snapdragon , your Graphics run at half speed of Apple last Gen , and the next Gen is a month away
Sonu , 30 Jul 2018Very bad quality totally waste the money (Problm) heat up problem sometime camera not worknot sure why you are complaining about the heating issue. i have a s9+ and from past few days im playing the Asphalt Legends for continously 2 hours and my phone doesn't heat up but gets luke warmed up. im on the exynos one, are you on the snapdragon?
overheat issue since s7 !!! i will never buy samsung anymore.
best choice now : xiaomi or huawei / honor
Its worthy upgrade from S7, dual stereo speakers,Best camera ,best display.
battery wise bit disappointed
Very bad quality totally waste the money
(Problm) heat up problem sometime camera not work
Still me, posted bellow 2posts
I got the phone yesterday afternoon and these are my first impressions
Ok so I played asphalt xrally at max gfx and few more casual games, browsed a bit, watched few yt videos, FB a bit, listened to a lot of music (on speakers, bluetooth and headphones), tested camera more and so far I got 5hrs OST and 25% battery left.
Overnight it used 2-3% battery, I enabled normal power saving just in case.
AOD is set manually from 10am-23pm, turns off at night. Although I enabled AOD off by battery save.
So far it's a very solid performer, it's a duo exynos version, 64GB.

I'm in process of buying a new S9
Does camera glass really shatter/break quick or out o... moreOk nvm, those were just clumsy users and tried to blame and get away with it.
Phone is ok, got a confirmation from a user owning it for a while it doesn't break like that easily.
I'm in process of buying a new S9
Does camera glass really shatter/break quick or out of nowhere?
I was looking at Samsung US q&a the other day, for problems and stuff and saw this shocking thread :/
Is this a common thing or where those just clumsy and or a bad batch of phones??
I was interested in a S9 but when I visited the Samsung site I was surprised by the amount of negative reviews by S9 owners. Too bad, with it's trade in offer it could have been a good deal.
Can you download FM radio in galaxy s9 if it's int'l model that works offline?? Thank you in advance
Jerez half of you sound like you donk know how to use phones, I've had mine for 3 months and it has been nothing but a pleasure to use, barely beats up, sounds amazing and is the fastest phone I've ever used. Learn to use android, it's not like iPhones, you gotta maintain the phone, and if your using your phone for 10 hrs and complaining about battery you need to get off your phone and try that thing called life. Smh.
well to be really honest, i skipped s8 from s7 and jumped to s9. And i must say i am really disappointed. the phone battery sucks big time. even with minimal usage it doesn't go 10hours striaght. what good is a phone if you cant do anything with it. Now i ll think outside samsung ! You disappoint me !
