bought mine at widget city taft ave. philippines.. 24 thousand pesos.. im not sure if they have tempered glass there. but i bought my tempered glass at robinsons ermita.. ( beside fitness first ) .. also bought the jelly back case there. . transparent clear.. both 150 pesos.. super clear picture.. clearer than my s6 edge + .... brighter and clearer pics.. long battery life.. unlike my s6 edge + .. fast charging too.. a little thick but very nice to hold..
I've been using this for almost a month now.
- Best screen! (6 in. and Super AMOLED), even if 1080p only.
- Fast performance in any task, haven't paused or stopped during use
- The best battery life! I squeezed out 2days 23hrs battery life with 8hrs 52mins on screen time in a full charge
- Doesn't overheat
- Gorgeous looking for a big phone
- Dual sim!
- Only tried Injustice game and plays smoothly
- Nice marshmallow experience
-Good camera performance even at low light
- A bit heavy (previous phone wasgalaxy note 3 and this was comfortable to hold)
- Weak wifi signal (as compared to my note 3)
- No LED notification light
- No color black available
Widget city has a transparent back cover. no available screen protector. I bought a nilkin hard slim back cover with free screen protector for the regular galaxy a9 (and it fits!) from an online seller for 600 pesos (13 USD).
This phone is pretty awesome. Great battery, but why 6.0 inch? I'm a kind of person who likes a smartphone from 5-5.5 inches only, more than that is just too big for me.
People who already own this beast, please tell us about its pros and cons in detail kindly.. Thanks :)
Nick, 06 May 2016Few day ago I brought my 1-month old Samsung A9 Pro to Samsung Xiawan ( 270 Yuehua Road Zhuha... moreOne needs to pay for firmware/software upgrade, warranty is only for the hardware device. All manufacturers (including the infamous Apple) usually charge a customer for it!
Superb battery, great featutes,,,well almost -Samsung still stuck with Micro USB. I am getting a lappy with USB C & My nxt ph needs to have it -Can carry/use common adaptor!!
Few day ago I brought my 1-month old Samsung A9 Pro to Samsung Xiawan ( 270 Yuehua Road Zhuhai China) service center for repair. In reply to my request for my phone to be repaired by upgrading firmware the arrogant lady Ms Chau who couldnot speak the popular Zhuhai Cantonese (same as HK and Macau Cantonese) told me that' it might not work but I had to pay Yuan 65.00 in any event. I decided not to proceed further. I went to a phone shop and got it repaired free of charge; I voluntarily paid the guy Yuan 10 as tea money. Guys, when you buy a phone you really have to bear in mind the services standard of the phone manufacturer. That is why Samsung is losing its market share in China to others.
