I paid $460 for it 4 months ago, and with Samsung's student discount, an ongoing eBay promotion, and trading in a different phone, it will essentially be an even trade for a much nicer phone.

Anonymous, 14 Mar 2018Exynos is a replica of snapdragon. Doesn't quite perform like snapdragon even in terms of gamingfrom what i know, Exynos is more power efficient than Snapdragon - in gaming not so much. I know it was developed by Samsung with the help of Qualcomm and my issue was regarding battery life which I supposed to be better than S8 due to newer and more power efficient processor. Time will tell.

Which people are you talking about? Samsung phones is one of the best market, their flagships phones could be relevant after a years, even S7 edge still can a best buy this year. iPhone users mostly live in cave, change phone every year even there is no different every new iPhones released. Same ui, design, not top on camera and ugly design if they appear new design LOL.
Can anyone please provide me with the hexadecimal of the Samsung Galaxy S9 colors?

Fan means this. This is bad, but if those little LG's Optimus fans continued support of their platform, then they still had theirs.
HTC is next loser thanks to small fan base. After 2 years of missing HTC, they will find what they lose, "Self made imaginary trust".
Samsung owners are just like iPhone owners. Every time a new one comes out ,they have to update their phone! Why?

How is that possible considering that all mentions regarding Exynos 9810 say that is more power efficient than Exynos 8895? Could the tests be wrong ?
You samsung haters forget something about slow update:
-ios have 1 major update per year at the same time ( week before or after new iphone).
-android release new os on the last quarter (often sept oct november) for their nexus or pixel.
If you look carefully itÂ’s the same for samsung (or other brands). Because samsung release every year the update of s series times before or after new galaxy s (feb or march). In fact itÂ’s the same one year update. True Google release android early on spetember or october but samsung has is own release date and they respect that every year. I donÂ’t understand why people want update at the same time with nexus. Sure itÂ’s the same android os but itÂ’s not so simple. It take time to customise android and add touchwiz on the front. SamsungÂ’experience android # google vanilla android

U can get better battery life than that if u use it in moderation
Why does S9 has a lower battery life than S8 considering they said newer CPU's have a much lower power consumption?
I would like to see a huge improvement on flash too. This is a decorative artifact on my S8+ because it's too weak and narrow to be usable. It's interesting the citation of GALAXY S2 flash in this review, since I owned a S2 for about 5 years, and the flash was awesome powerful, the best I've seen, surpassed only by the Nokia N8 xenon flash.
Truly, the dual aperture is a great thing, but the common sense was about an VARIABLE aperture rumor. So, this is kind of a half-disappointment.
Since this is the major improvement, I don't wanna trade S8+ by S9. Waiting for Note 9 or the S10 (not X, please, or leave the galaxy brand)
hey guys I got a 2 month used S8 for Rs 37000 (570$). I know if i take care of the mobile it can last 3-4 more years and then when I go in used market for the latest Galaxy phone I would have to spend around Rs 40000 (615$). So thats roughly 800 to 1100 Rs per month based on 3-4 years of usage.
What I was thinking is if I sell my mobile after using for 1 year i would still fetch somewhere around 20-25K and I have to put 10-12K more for next used Galaxy (mostly S9) and in this way I can have almost new phones every year and all the galaxy flagships.
What do you think do any of you do this or you all keep your phone for as long as possible.
When released " Samsung Galaxy S9 MINI edition" ?????
I hope this year to release mini edition of samsung flagship, let it be like sony xperia xz2 compact, not bigger than 5" inch
