I've had this phone for about 3 months now and it's been amazing! Hands down the best phone I've ever had across the board, speed, camera, durability (water, dust, etc), all around a great device. The wireless charging is a joke, I got the official Samsung charge station and it is very particular on the placement of the device on the pad, and if you have a case on, even a thin one, you're looking at 6-7 hours from 15-20% to a 100% full charge. On the device itself, my only issue is with Bixby, which is easy to remove/turn off.
The "On The Go" connection to a usb thumb-drive on the SGS9+ finds the drive but can't actually display what's on it. Consulted Samsung techos who tried everything (different connectors etc. etc.) and yes they agreed it doesn't work. They guess that it is Android Oreo that is causing the issue and yes they expect it to resolve with the next Android "P" release.
Works OK on my SG Note 8 which is also on Android Oreo.
Galaxy S10 & X rumors are awesome but look at Apple, even iphone 5s is getting ios 12 & Samsung never gets into a solution fot software updates, I hope project Trebel will change the situation for androids & bloatwares I think are going nowhere even more will come from Windows
Deepak, 07 Jun 2018My Samsung S9+ battery drain very fast, please anybody have any solution then please let me know Buy a LG V20 and use an extended battery.
6.400 mAh is a good deal, among many amperages to choose.
Best Phone till date battery is huge no drain smooth reliable experience.Samsung must gave users to choose scaling governors option.
Using this phone from past 7 days. total beast of a phone, upgraded from iphone 6 to S9+.loving the android experience.
Deepak, 07 Jun 2018My Samsung S9+ battery drain very fast, please anybody have any solution then please let me know 1- you need to shut down all syncs in background through accounts and use it only when you need it.
2- disable apps that not in use through setting.
3- If youÂ’re not using bixby go to bixby setting and shutdown bixby sync including bixby other setting.
4- Open Samsung App Store and check Samsung apps updates including Samsung apps store update.
Almost perfect phone..no complaints except for one. There is no VOLTE hence I can't use my ntel SIM. I wonder if this can be fixed with an uodate.

Hi there. I haven't had a samsung phone for many years. And decided to try this one. And I haven't had any issues so far. The camera is clear, the battery I can get through a day with moderate to heavy use. I think I have the snapdragon version (as I am from the UK). The chip is very smooth, no glitches. Would recommend this phone.

Can't wait for the Galaxy S10 to be released. I'm using my Galaxy S6 for 2 years now and haven't really had the need to upgrade since I don't need to. Still a beast although battery life isn't the best (which Samsung still needs to fix.) I'm now planning to upgrade to the S10 since it will be their 10th Anniversary Galaxy flagship phone. Oh a couple of fun facts about Samsung's Exynos chips. Their chips are actually more powerful, faster and efficient than Snapdragon chips. They are only throttling it so that their Exynos and Snapdragon devices would be equal. I think they will show the true potential of their chip in the S10. Peace out. ✌️✌️

Also in your Settings menu go to Device Maintenance and optimise your phone. You can also disable Bixby if you are not using it by going into your Apps settings.
