I really hope they will optimise the board support package of the Exynos version to fix the battery issue. This really is the perfect phone for me except in that one area.
When will be the PIE coming out? Hopefully it will fix some issues like battery consumption, screen burn and etc.. .
I wanted to trade-in my old Xperia XZ for a brand-new Galaxy S9 via the website but I have read so many negative issues about this phone in particular:
1. "Black smear" and blue ink/tinge on the screen (especially when brightness is on low)
2. Video recording audio is poor (clarity & bitrate)
3. Photo underexposure/overexposure in Auto Mode on times where it should not be.
4. Dead pixels on screen
Plus the usual battery life/performance slowdowns/memory management combo.
Are these issues still present? or have they been fixed with the latest update?
My S9 EXTRA VOLUME BUTTON on dialing screen is missing. Any setting for replace it?
Thank You in Advance.
babak, 09 Oct 2018except that terrible batterylife. everything else is okThe battery of the S9 Exynos is horrible
It is not just the actual RAM only 3.3GB but also the free RAM less than 1GB
I love the S series phones from Samsung but I think the pixel 3 and the 3XL are doing things smartly when it comes to meeting the users demand. Majority of people today buy phones because of the camera but at the same time not everyone has big hands. So, If you are making a phone of a smaller size, in this case the S9 compared to the S9+, please keep the camera same. The S9 do not have dual camera which is sad for many people. I know that, everything on both big and the small phone can not be 100% similar. However, the S9 already has lower battery capacity. Thus make the screen resolution lower to compensate for the smaller battery so that it can last just as long as the S9+. Pixel 3 and 3XL are good example of both of this not to mention the price difference is also greater! I am not trying to say that pixel is better that samsung but it was a just my opinion I shared to see something right in the future from the upcoming Samsung Galaxy S series smartphones. Thank you.

It ticks all the right boxes i want for a phone : small size, light weight, no notch, loud stereo speakers, fast wireless charging, powerful processor, great low light pictures and videos, headphone jack and memory card. And with promotion 500 euros now. Best phone i ever had.
My advice: never buy a phone just launched, always wait at least six months.
Hey folks can anyone help me for the reason as below:
1. Some times contacts are not displaying or take more than one minute to displaying. In both cases normal and in call.
2. Recent update of Samsung Music player ruin the simplicity and clean interface of the app. The album thumbnails are look very big and ugly like seen on a vga screen in my S9. My eye sight is normal and i don't like to use any app meant for pepole witl low vision. Is there any way to bring back 3 in a row style of thumbnails? Thanks
Battery drain quickly, make sure you update all the apps through the google app store and all the Samsung the software updates in the settings (swipe down and touch the gear icon, which is the shortcut icon to the settings). Just had one today that included the September security patch for android. Second make sure no apps are running in the background (drains battery and may eat data since content/information always refreshes every certain amount of time). Also i would suggest turn off the data, if you are using wifi in the home or friends or like a restaurant that offers free wifi for its customer. Also make sure your are using the original charger for this phone that is included in the box, no third party or counterfeit ones that you get cheaply (I think the phone will tell you charger is not genuine or charge slowly (not really, since it may not even charge at all)). If all of this doesn't work, try this before going to bed, let the phone drain completely (turns the phone off on its own), then after about a 1 minute plug it in using the original charger or if you own the wireless charger pad from Samsung, again no weird third party crap, use that to completely charge to 100% while you sleep. Then try to use the phone normally. If that still doesn't work, then i would suggest contacting Samsung or find a different phone according to your liking.
Just bought myself a S9 for 489 euros with the promotion here in France. Great price for a flagship launched at 849 euros. Love its compact size and super fast chipset, why buy chinese phone...
phone is very good flagship but the screen tends to scratch easily even though it is gorilla glass 5 version, not recommended to use without screen protector and the battery does not stay long not even full day with average uses. samsung must provide the update immediately.
Anonymous, 28 Sep 2018Not great, especially if it's the Exynos version. Get the note 9 if battery is your concern. I have exynos version and now after I turned off fast charge things changed a lot.
Before I usually hovered 6.30hrs OST until 5%, now 6.30hr and 15% left.
But I keep power save option, just for CPU. I have AOD and background data enabled, also full resolution 2860*1440.
