Did you guys stop taking high resolution photos of the screen? Really found that valuable to see the actual pixel layout, fill factor, etc.
Is anyone here that uses a wood based cover on its phone?
I bought the latest Huawei P20 and I want to use an evergreen cover on it because I'm a big fan of the coniferous forest (https://www.alternative-energies.net/coniferous-forest-biome/), so I want to have the forest with me all the time.
write as 6 months iPhone X owner and yes, it is very nice iPhone.
Got Samsung S9+ for weekend trial from my wife.
Any kept it, iPhone is on Ebay.
First, I did not like some features of S8+ and did not expect much from S9+.
But this is different beast.
Got in in EU Equinois processor and 256 GB RAM specs.
Added 400 GB Micro SD card, as well. Yes, I need lot of RAM for videos and movies.
First, this is dual SIM phone, what is very, very convenient.
With bit of skills Micrso SD card and two SIM cards sits together in combo slot.
Believe me, it works like charm.
It is superbly fast and I felt it is much faster than anything I tried including iPhone X (except probably for games, but I do not play them).
I was stunned by quality of Super AMOLED display, clear and visible step up from flagship iPhone.
Improvements in camera department (super slow mode is fun), stereo speakers with Dolby, as well as, retaining standard headphones input took my ttention toward S9+, as real contender over my iPhone X.
It is amazing that Samsung polished their OS, as well, so security features are convenient and reach (face, eye and finger sensors, individually or together), Bigsby can be turned off and easily re-assigned button (via free app). So, one button more than standard (great !!!).
Samsung is quite generous with unlimited cloud for pics and 15GB for other stuff (I got 200GB two years third party's free cloud from Samsung, as well).
And 6 GB RAM kills iPhone with many, many open apps in same time.
I have over 500 apps and it did not slow it at all.
OREO 8.1 is already underway, so Android experience is very good on this phone.
Actually I have no single complain, I do not understand anyone who simply doesn't love all those unimaginable features. Actually there is nothing that is not implemented on S9+ (except front side diplay fingertip sensor) in comparison with other phones.
Videos are excellent, sharp and deep, pics are exactly as I like (sometimes color balance could differ from absolute ideal, but it is tweakable).
The depth of black on the screen is stunning.
My absolute recommendation.
Imperator Neubaticus, 27 Mar 2018Clearly you don't understand economics. you're wasting your time with this guy.
Imperator Neubaticus, 27 Mar 2018Clearly you don't understand economics. Clearly you dont understand what i am trying to tell you.
As usualy you ahve your own mind and tottaly ignore the truth other trying to tell you.
Speaking with u is a total waste of time and energy and thus this conversation going to end because you dont hear me anyway you only pretending your nonsense.
Have a nice day pal and make some research.
Anonymous, 22 Mar 2018Well, you said it, your country is small, so you can not see the whole world picture, taxes an... moreWell i can imagine that but thats not true. Samsung have here shops in every medium to large shopping mall.
And we have 4 major mobile phone operators and 4 minor which also sells and do promo for Samsung. Then there are casual shops like on i am working for.
You have no idea.
Samsung is greedy company and needs to be banned.
Brand new S9+ cost 1050 and after year the phone will sells for 500 and Samsung still makes a huge profit. Where is the problem???
Anonymous, 21 Mar 2018No, the difference between manufacture cost and selling price is not distributed as you think,... moreMan all you described here is like 10% of the difference between manufacturing cost and sales cost.
To be honest again Samsung makes best or one of best phones.
But their sticker is everywhere on eery kitchen ware TV DVD HIFI AUDIO etc.
Their mobile department is really well but other departments lacking everything.
For example Samsung TV compared to LG TV or Sony TV is like to compare Spanish Doogee Brand vs Samsung phones.
Most of the money always in Samsung case goes to advertising. And the most is up to 90% because postcards TVs etc are full of Samsung products everytime i switch to different programe there is Samsung advertising between movie or sport programme.
I bought this s9 plus after I got fed up of oneplus 5T's pathetic camera. Now i'm getting fed up of this S9+'s mediocre battery life. Battery life just sucks.
The problem with Samsung is Apple offers 2 week money back no questions from day purchase when Samsung don't.
CptPower, 21 Mar 2018Man most of that are couple of penny. No more. Rest or lets say 80% is for advertising. ... moreWell, you said it, your country is small, so you can not see the whole world picture, taxes and profit for distribution are not pennies, but a significant percentage, varying from country to country, transport and distribution in a small city-sized country may be very cheap, but many countries are large, I imagine that in your country, there are just ONE point of entry and distribution
Anonymous, 21 Mar 2018No, the difference between manufacture cost and selling price is not distributed as you think,... moreMan most of that are couple of penny.

Samsung cant sell anything without advertising. And their mobile division is something special.
Our coutry i am from Slovakia is so small that it takes like 4 hours by car from east to west border and like 2 hours from north to south. Its like 500 km wide and around 200 or 220 from north to south. With a 5,5 million people.
And in small country like this samsung paid some millions of eoros to have a big i mean really postcards on a walls of some of ours most tallest buildings. For what just for promo.
In other hand Xiaomi Mi7 with equaly same specs and a LCD screen compared to superamoled bit worse camera but much bigger battery and 8GB ram instead of 4 and 128Gb doskspace compared to 64 of latest samsung flagship. Well 90% of customers if they see both phones each other and one will cost 350 eur and the other 1000 with equaly same specs who do you think will sells more much more?
I tell you xiaomi.
Doesnt matter Samsung is better most people change their phone every two years where the price is what always matters. I can guarantee you that 80% of people have no idea what most of the specs means people who are not interest in the phone details will dont know that anyway. How i know? I work for one of the largest mobile phone companies in Slovakia.
Dunno like somewhere else but here average adult earns 500 to 900 eur. Top managers have like 1500 to 2500.
In other calculation it means for a one salary you can have a Xiaomi Mi7 and still you will be left with some money for food. But you need to save a couple of wages to get S9 or S9+. When you have a lot of money putting some aside its not a problem but when you live from hand to mouth as we slovakian usualy saying its a problem a big one.
And thats our country. I know that countries like Germany for example or Norwegian Finnish Swedish etc havent problem to buy even a 2 units of S9+ from one salary but most counties earn much less than here in Slovakia.
Just for example average salary in Bangladesh is 17 eur a month. And lot more countries earns the same or even less.
CptPower, 21 Mar 2018S9+ different story? Where? Man to be honest Samsung pay 350 dollars to make one S9 thats les... moreNo, the difference between manufacture cost and selling price is not distributed as you think, you are leaving out many factors, as research and development, oem taxes, transport, import taxes, importer profits, wholesale distribuition profit, local vendors profit and final sales tax
Very Honest reviewer who said the right comment at the end,wait another month till the price starts to grumble and make the S9 Plus more competitive,so pleased with the S8 Plus,and with it being early 2018 and Huawei announcing there new phones next week,hope there cheaper than the Overvalued S9 phones from Samsung
I guess all the Exynos 9810 variant will have an extra case out of the box.
X User, 19 Mar 2018Hi, I would just like to ask one thing. I bought the S9+ in Singapore. Mine is a 256GB version... moreEvery Exynos 9810 version of the S9/S9+ will have an extra case out of the box. The Snapdragon 845 version of S9/S9+ will have the USB 2.0 to 3.0 dongle connector instead.
