Biggest upgrade over S8 is the camera on S9, and S9+ really holds the advantage with dual camera. Second are a bit faster processor, and stereo speakers.
But S8 has better design, and same battery (with exception of it already being a bit downgraded from full year of use).
Feature wise, I donÂ’t use either Bixby or Google Assistant or anything like that. Only Bixby vision text extraction sometimes comes handy, the same like abillity to scan part of the screen, or take long screenshots and make GIF animations.
Bottom line: The S9 is definitley a better phone than S8. But if you arenÂ’t really rich or if you donÂ’t feel like spending money and already have S8 - you will probably stick with the S8. Unless you are a hard case of camera person.
Why keep making the screen so big,i will need a clown pocket , ridiculous
Why the hell samung put 4 GB Ram in his flagship phone? Why this phone looks like the s8 again where is creatively ha? Why so boring design again? I expected something remarkable from samsung but it seems like they prefer to remain Boring... such a waste.
I have questions. 1. The phone supports microSD card up to 400GB? I've heard of some phones supporting 2TB microSD cards, although those are probably not real(I haven't followed SD card news in a long time). 2. It says "(uses SIM 2 slot) - Dual SIM model only" Does this mean no SD card slot on single sim model?

If you have the money in your pocket (or will have the money in your pocket soon) and you are itching to buy but haven't done so yet. Worth pointing out that previous Galaxy Flagships have seen big price drops and promotions shortly after release. So if you can hold out and you are on a tight budget it could be worth holding out for a couple.of months.
I point this out because almost guaranteed there will be many a post moaning/complaining about big price reductions and promotions that they see a couple of months down the line.
Don't say you were not warned. You know the score :)
The S8 or the S8 Plus are already to be found at good prices, if you have not considered either of those options and retailers will likely reduce prices even further due to the launch of the S9's.
Ok friends, thought to update everyone.
Using s9 from last 1 week, everything is super fine however the battery life is very poor. Approx full charge will give you around 6hr to 8 hrs only.
I had s7 edge earlier which was much better interms of battery life i.e. 12hrs to 14hrs
San, 16 Mar 2018Battery is dissapointment for me. Comig from iphone SE that has 2x smaller batter and lasts tw... moreAgreed with me its even 10 hrs.
Previously using s7 edge which works for atleast 16 hrs
Bring back the infrared port. I can't move on to the S9 because there is no IR port
Battery is dissapointment for me. Comig from iphone SE that has 2x smaller batter and lasts twice as long.
Battery estimate 14h This is very poor.
Screen is exelent.

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.
