Anonymous, 27 Mar 2018"Chinese Foxconn almost every phone is made there and then send worldvide" What happened to... moreI cant say percentage but Foxconn is world biggest factory for making the cell phones.
I bought Galaxy S9, after using Galaxy Alpha for 3.5 years.
I would say, This is the phone with no compromise. Everything is top notch without that stupid notch(iphone X). Camera and display is best at this time, there is no any other phone which can compete with Galaxy S9.
Samsung experience ui is great. Everything including Edge lighting, dual speakers, Edge panel, super slow no, F1.5, Force touch home button which actually feels like home button, Performance is great as well.
Battery could have been better, but it's fine for me. It can survive whole day with 4-5 hrs SOT.
Samsung rarely gives updates, using a S7 and S8 and till now oreo has not yet come.............very slow in giving updates cause by the time oreo for sammy, pixel would have a new version for their fones............samsung fones are gr8 - gud camera and formfactor and looks - overall gud but OS still cant compare with Pixel fones.........so end of the day OS i.e stock android plays a major role.
haven't had this phone yet but from what I see and hear out there its the best in 2018. Am ma buy this phone, working on my budget
It seems Samsung suffers from the oddity curse, that is, every single odd-numbered release of their flagship phone has suffered from one or more design flaws.
1. Phone slow startup after just 6 months of purchase brand new.
1. Screen burn-ins
2. Enexplained crashes even though using firmware released by Sammy + the telco addons.
1. Sensor underneath the AMOLED screen would caused the screen to flash continuously at low brightness level (less than 10%). Once the problem starts, can't fix it; require a complete screen + sensor change.
2. Performace degrades after 11 months of constant usage.
1. Can't stand the Australian heat if you accidentally left the phone on the dashboard for about an hour. Phone heat up and died. Such worthless fragile heap of gimmick junk, it's really laughable! Remind me of overpriced European cars with crappy aircon. Eh? Forget that it was supposed to be made for the Australian market and extreme weather condition.
2. Video time is half of what was claimed by Sammy and "independent" review sites. Notice the double quotes!
1. Battery life is utter crap, despite the bogus claim from Sammy and its legion of fanboys! Try watching videos and games with intensive graphic sequences and you'll see what I mean. Remember to bring the damn charger with you everywhere you go!
2. Dual audio lines recording not working at all (You can write a test app/case in Java to prove this point yourself).
3. Back gorilla glass surface, as always, is not a good heat dissipator (Neither was plastic from their previous Galaxy SN flagship phones), where "N" is a numeric designator.
4. Non-removable battery won't help if you need to fix your phone OS yourself. Developer will know what I mean.
5. No IR blaster and radio-receiver chips - useful features not included.
All up: Don't bother anymore with over-hyped, gimmicky Samsung Galaxy S-series flagship phones! You just throw money down the drain even if you can afford it comfortably.
GSMArena Reader, 01 Apr 2018When it comes to functionality and performance(except battery life), Samsung's flagships almos... moreYou can easily uninstall any bloatware that you want. This is a big plus for Samsung. Other brands like "Sony", you can't uninstall most bloatware.
When it comes to functionality and performance(except battery life), Samsung's flagships almost had it all.
Good Screen, Camera, Hardwares
3.5mm headphone jack(Thank Samsung for keeping this.)
Good looking phone. IP certs.
The only thing hindering from buying them are the amount of bloatwares.
Looking back to my First generation Samsung Note, I never used any of its bloatwares.
Mobile is ok but its very heating and batterie pack up ok but heating lot sometimes hanging lot while playing games charging bit slow i give 3star money wasted i thinking pls choose other mobile my opinion have a nice day
Hm, I wonder what to get... This, or two Playstations, a laptop, computer, a second-hand scooter, maybe a cheap car? Perhaps save it for gas money, to go to work, for like six months. It's such a tough decision (not :))
Anonymous, 29 Mar 2018I go into the shop and I still see s9 looking the best.It is also my impression that the s9 is the best looking phone in the galaxy (pun intended) right now. For me the looks donÂ’t do all the deal but itÂ‘s true itÂ‘s damn gorgeous
Galaxy galaxy, 28 Mar 2018Is this phone have bad battery life i want to know s9's battery life is not as good a s7 edge's battery running marshmallow. Overall, the s9 with the 845 is fast, and battery is slightly "below" average. The 835 is has better battery life in general.
Galaxy galaxy, 28 Mar 2018Is this phone have bad battery life i want to knowWith respect this is not a great question to ask here and I will explain.
Each person's perception of good or bad battery life will be different and will depend on there past experiences. E.g If they get more S.O.T with the s9 compared to previous phones that they have had they might say "Yes it's fantastic!" BUT the opposite may apply if they are now getting less S.O.T.... and what would that tell you anyway?
Shock, horror people have biased views also..... Some will defend whilst some will attack the S9 and it's impossible sometimes to find the truth.
We all use our phones differently, more or less calls taken or made.... more or less gaming or using social media apps or we may stay in a very hot country where the sun shines brightly and to compensate the screen brightness may be turned up so that the screen can be seen clearly... this will drain battery quicker than someone who spends most time in doors or stays in the northern hemisphere for example. So people may give you different answers........ and what would that tell you?
Also someone who receives a good signal will be less affected than a person that receives a very poor signal strength...... also do they use Wi-Fi or mobile data...play videos .... how many apps do they synch? Etc I could go on and on
So to just ask random people may not help you too much. Best to.look at the reviews here and look at some of the test results than to ask different users because we are all different. At least test conducted are all conducted under similar conditions so that is the best quite and will give you a much clearer answer.
Probably best starting here tbh and work from there
All in my humble opinion.
