    I WAS skeptical but...

    I upgraded from a NOTE 5 which I still loved till this day but after I upgraded to the S9+ and not the NOTE 8 I was a bit skeptical. The S9+ has blown me away. Of course, though Samsung always takes away little great things from previous phones and does away with them with newer more exciting software. Like for instance on the NOTE 5 cameras software, I was able to utilize and download different camera filters or picture frames like my all time favorite "dual camera shot" where it uses both the front and back cameras to add the subject and yourself in a nice picture frame with either a heart, a polaroid, a tiny 4x4, and also the virtual shot where you take a panoramic shot and when you post it, people move around thier phones to see the whole picture you've posted. These older camera software was the best. The VR shot was great too. Samsung..I MISS THESE THINGS! PLEASE BRING THEM BACK! Don't get me wrong, the S9+ is a capable phone with newer camera software and such is good. It's fast as a bolt of lightning. The screen is amazing. The speaker system with Atmos is out of this world I mean why can't Samsung just stop deleting older camera software and just implement them in newer phones? This is so frustrating, although the camera on the S9+ is amazing. It's more professional grade and less "toyish" if you will. To sum up - Although I miss my note 5 and weening myself off it to the S9+ has its ups and downs, I do enjoy the S9+ newer features and stellar performance. I guess i'm moving with the times.

    Great Improvement on S8

    I upgraded from the Galaxy S8 to the S9+. I prefer the smaller version of the phone and still consider it the better version of the 2. I chose the S9+ due to the dual camera and the larger batter and can safely say that I am able to get through an entire day 10-12 hours with 35% battery left. This is a HUGE improvement over the S8 as I was only getting 10-12 hours total. I only have to charge my phone at night. When I know I'm not going home, the quick charge capability allows me to get to 75% with 30-45 mins of charging. The finger print scanner relocation has been one of the best features and I find myself using it more now than before. The Live Photo is amazing and much faster than the S8. The selfies take a few shots to get it right and the 'palm' catcher is a nice feature as it has you looking in the correct position to make sure your eyes are correct in the photo. The sides are slightly raised so you can feel the glass and sides clearly defined. The phone is slippery and I have dropped it several times with out the case, luckily it was on carpet so there are no damages. I use a case consistently since it is a little harder to hold. I did not use a case with my S8. I still give 5 stars even though I wish the S9 had the dual camera because I would have gotten that one just for the size because it is much easier to hold and use with one hand.

    First Foray Into Samsung In Years

    After years with Apple, we decided to switch to Android and the Samsung Galaxy 9+ specifically. I have 2 teenage sons and they wanted to switch because most of their friends have them. No biggie. From the short time we've had them, there are some advantages and some disadvantages to the phones, but mostly it's just different approaches to the same features. The screen is beautiful, the pictures it takes are beautiful, and the phone speed is impressive. We don't see much of a difference in data speed, but that could be a Sprint thing and not phone specific. The major negative to me is that it seems much more invasive than Apple. Something I never would have thought for sure. However, out of the box it tries to tie everything together and seems to monitor your usage to where it can recommend things. Not necessarily bad, but I would prefer to opt into all that instead of it making me opt out. It is less restrictive than Apple with apps and accessibility, which was the main selling point to me. So all in all, happy with them, but not a huge difference between Apple and Samsung at this point. Even the price points are too similar to give one the edge over the other.

    Before I talk about the phone I must thank Amber for sticking with me for an extremely long upgrade and device swap process. All of the problems we had were with Sprint, not Best Buy or Samsung. Long story, short, I was in the store for about 6 hours. Amber kept her cool while on the phone with the Sprint rep and we finally got it all set. It was actually kinda fun chatting with her and the rest of the employees since I was there so long. OK, the phone... I use my phone for taking photos so that was the main reason I upgraded from the S8. The new camera is stellar! I can't believe some of the pics I've been able to capture. I can't wait to take it on my next trip. I hesitated to go with the Plus but I'm glad I did. It's not that much bigger in my pocket but the larger screen is nice.

    Still a great phone a cycle later

    Got this for my daughter a few months back as BB was basically giving them away in preps for the S10 arrival. Not complaining. She was and is a huge Apple fan but she quickly warmed to the S9 once her millennial brain figured out the nuance and differences between the two OS's, which took roughly a day. Sad to say It has hit concrete on numerous occasions already but has survived each impact with aplomb. She loves the screen brilliance and clarity, especially in comparison with her old iPod - there's tons of Snapchatting and such going on, and she's deep into the library of Google-issued games and loving it. From an adult perspective, doesn't seem to be much of an improvement over my S8 but that's where we are right now with the incremental improvements to these highly sophisticated pieces of tech. Still has an SD card slot and headphone jack *cough* Apple *cough* so I can't complain. Storage and audio quality matter! Overall, still a great phone and probably pick u another for my son later this year when they're at dumpster-diving prices.

    It works I guess.

    It works alright. A lot of time it loses LTE for no reason and goes into roaming. The bixby button is miserable, but you can turn it off, and then you just have a dead pointless button under your volume down button. Theres a volume warning that pops up any time you try to turn the volume up past 2/3, and despite going through every setting I can find to raise the volume level, it just keeps popping up every time after you restart. And you have to restart it so much because you lose LTE so often, as was mentioned before. The screen curves at the edges, but a lot of apps get cut off in this curve and you will have missing text or cropped images because of it. It takes forever to send texts, or download ab image in text. Ot compressed videos to the point that they are u watchable after messaging them. I'm not really impressed since this is supposed to be the best phone out right now. I got this because I wanted to get away from apple products. I preferred the iPhones to this by a long shot, but it works I guess.

    Upgraded from the luvly galaxy S5. Missing some of the easy features I love on my old phone as deleting multiple messages. Stupid bixby side button interfering everytime I take a screen shot or just by accidentally pressing it. Miss having little rotating picture widgets on homescreen. Much larger and heavier. Love the big screen and speaker. More security! So many ways to customize keyboard, apps and always on visuals. Had trouble downloading everything from last phone could'nt update app from SD card. Also the slot is so flimsy. Let's you know if moisture got in charge port until dry. Fast charging. Love blue light filter! Dont like that location stays on but hidden from top so I forget to turn off. Too many buttons to go thru when trying to text a number not in contacts. However accidentally calling someone is not a problem anymore unless u press it twice n the right spot. There are two screens to go thru just to see a quick message before unlocking phone..annoying sometimes but its better security.

    Great Upgrade, and a nice Best Buy deal!

    This was indeed a Great Upgrade, and a nice Best Buy deal! The July 4th $300 discount made the deal too sweet to hold off. I'd been considering making the switch from my Samsung S7 to the 9, but wanted the screen space of the 9+. My eyes are not getting younger, and I noticed the difference over the smaller screen. The speakers and camera are greatly upgraded from my S7, The biometric fingerprint reader is in a much friendlier location and is instantly accurate...a true plus! It is the most accurate method out there for now, and it is really all that is needed. It is effortless and flows from a natural position of the hand holding the phone. Once the other biometric functions are turned off as unneeded extras, battery life takes a great turn for the better; even though it is more than adequate with them running. Bixby...well, just do yourself a favor and turn that completely OFF. That Bixby button is unneeded and a giant pain! Otherwise, this phone just plain rocks!!

    Great phone, horrible carrier

    The phone is fantastic, if you get this phone you won't be disappointed. However, if you get this phone, get the unlocked version. Sprint carrier comes with extremely annoying bloatware - the only way to get your voicemail, for instance, is through their voicemail app, which has ADS! There are a number of other apps and programs like this that you're forced to use and unable to remove (without dangerous third-party uninstall apps or rooting the phone), and even if you do remove them it doesn't function. The 3* is because the phone is good enough to make it almost worth it, but the carrier is truly horrible. Good price, I guess, but you pay for it in other ways.

    I've had this phone for about a year now and it is holding up well. It has plenty of processing power and RAM to meet almost anyone's needs. I did, however, have a very rare issue with my first phone and needed it to be exchanged The charging port got jammed. That being said my replacement phone works great. The features are almost limitless. The camera is great (there are better but only if you are a bit picky) It has all the functionality I was looking for in a phone and then some. To be honest I have not utilized the limit of this phone yet. Its a keeping I am planning on keeping for a long while.

    I'm reluctant to review this phone at this time. I liked it at the time I bought it. Hello... why would I have bought it if I didn't like it. I have had some problems with it and I've only had it a little over a month. Incoming calls were going directly into voicemail no matter what I did. Sprint had me reset it and it worked for about 2 calls and continued going into voicemail. It cleared itself. About a week after that, I couldn't make any calls. As soon as it dialed the number it hung up. I was near a Sprint store and the technician did a reset, tested it, and it's been working okay. That's all I can say for now other than the online User's Manual has got 232 pages and I haven't gotten to read it all yet.

    I have had this phone now for a couple months. And i have to say it is nearly perfect. Everything i could want in a phone, minus a curved edge screen and the relentless bloat ware to use proprietary software i have no interest in. Sleek, easy to navigate, and full of all the adds you could ever want. I knocked the one star off for the lack of restraint on google, samsung, and sprints part for bombarding us with adds on our phones. The other for the inability to get a decent screen protector cause of a curved edge of glass that is useless for anything other then making screen protectors not fit.

    This phone has it all, great camera, speedy processor, lots of memory, responsive screen, and loaded with features. It has one if not the fastest processor available today. I can run multiple apps at the same time with no slow downs or freezes. Tons of storage for pictures and music and can add a micro sd card for more if you really need to. Phone looks great too and now that they moved the fingerprint sensor away from the camera there isn't much you can say bad about it. Battery lasts all day for normal use and charges fast when you have to charge it. What more can I say, Samsungs best phone yet.

    Slow mo video is fun to use, that is the main reason behind upgrading my S8+to the S9+... it records 0.2 at a time and adds music it is cool and ends being 2 sec recording then starts again if triggered... there are two mode to record slow motion manual, when it doesnt matter when you need to record, ex stream of water. The other mode is fraiming, where you have a small frame and if there is a big change in that square it will start recording, ex passing car or kicking a ball.... price was right at 600 and brought my payments on my s8 10 down Con very limited slow mo recording but still lots of fun

    I purchased this when the S10 came out, as all the S9's went on sale. I upgraded from an S7 Edge. The screen is beautiful, and I love that the screen spans the entire phone. The speakers are also a huge upgrade, and the camera is fantastic, way better than my S7. I'm still a model behind, but I don't know what I'm missing and it can't be that much better for the price. My only issue is that I was trying to be cool by going with the gold phone, and was told by my wife that it looks pink. Sigh.

    I love galaxy phones. Just wish they would stop making curved screens. That part I hate. And almost did not buy it because of that. But I hate the iPhones more. iPhones are over rated. Over priced and a RIP off considering it's supposed to be a smart phone. It cannot do half of what a Galaxy can give me. And for that I stick with Galaxy. I wish you could do a face time thing on Galaxy though and more emoji animations to our faces. Overall I'm glad I bought it. I hope it doesn't break down after 2 years though like all my other Galaxy phones have.

    I upgraded from a Galaxy S7. A lot of the same software made it easy to use without having to learn a whole new system. I haven't had a chance to use all the camera features yet. I really like the larger screen. The charging plug is a C type. So all my old chargers won't work, but the wireless pads do. After reading about the C type plug, it seems to be a good change. Still able to use the plug part just needed new cables. Samsung cables are pretty inexpensive. The wireless chargers that I had for old phone still work great with new phone.

    I traded in a Samsung S7 for this S9 two weeks ago. The S9 is faster than the S7. And, if you go online and learn what programs to uninstall, or disable, this phone is incredible. The photo and video capabilities and clarity are far ahead of the S7. There's no waiting at all for the S9 to focus. Point-Snap-Perfect Photo...even in almost near-dark conditions. I record my son's football games. The videos are as clear as those taken by my 5 year-old $1200 Canon Camcorder. Amazing.

    I switched from Apple back to Samsung again.I was with Samsung till the Apple iPhone 4 model came out to the Apple iPhone 6s Plus. I decided to with back to Samsung due to my daughter has the Samsung Galaxy S9 and I had the Apple iPhone 6s Plus. We took pictures side by side and the Samsung Galaxy pictures were much better than my iPhone 6s Plus. I decided then to switch back to Samsung. I bought the Samsung Galaxy S9 Plus and I have not had any issues. The battery life is much better than when I had the old Samsung several years ago.
