    Great phone, but...

    Not wild about this phone because 1) it's case is glass, 2) on screen camera controls awful...suddenly I'm taking a slo-mo of myself as my finger gets too close to the screen, 3) bloat ware, 4) the keyboard it comes with, 5) battery life is not as advertised, 6) all support avenues for my problems gave me the "that's the way it is," live with it attitude, 7) "themes" are awful, 8) not enough Widgets install for lock screen/home screen, 9) I question my decision on getting the 9+ larger screen....don't really need it, 10) $1000 is honestly just too much for this thing.

    I switched from an IPhone to the Samsung Galaxy S9 six months ago. Terrible choice. BIXBY is annoying and not useful. The keyboard is horrible and misspells everything. I tried turning down the sensor that didn't help. Easily cracks if dropped even with case protectors. Only thing good about the phone is the camera! The phone had dead zones when I first purchased and they kept telling me it would be fixed when the kinks were worked out from it being a new product. But it never worked properly until I actually cracked it and had to get it replaced. I cannot wait to get an upgrade.

    My wife was due for an upgrade from a Galaxy S7 Edge. She wanted the S9 Plus Lilac Purple. Phone is beautiful and is a beast too. Comes with 6GB of RAM and 64GB onboard storage space with the ability to add up to 400GB Micro SD card. She just swapped her 200GB SD card she had on the S7 Edge. Phone recognized SD card immediately. Used Smart Switch to transfer all data from previous phone. Love the Display size and addition of stereo speakers. If you are looking to upgrade and don't need the stylus pen from the Note 8 this is the phone to get. Very happy with purchase. Samsung makes really good top of the line phones.

    Best Smartphone I've owned!

    I could not be happier with my purchase. This phone is great! I'm strictly an Android guy going back to the original Motorola Droid. Moved to Samsung Galaxy S series several smartphones ago, and most recently upgraded from the S7 Edge to the S9+. I've had it exactly four weeks having availed myself of the advanced order discount and trade-in allowances. The folks at Best Buy could not have been nicer or more helpful. Got all my apps, files, photos, etc. transferred to the new phone without a hitch. Will get all of my family's smartphones from Best Buy from now on. I highly recommend the Samsung Galaxy S9+.

    I still have a lot to learn with this phone (going from being a lifetime iPhone user). It looks great, and the pictures are really amazing quality (by far the best feature), but there are some hiccups I'm hoping will eventually get worked out - Bitmoji isn't easy to use in texts, sending multiple pics at a time is a pain, having trouble using the Waze app and their map program minimizes it's size while I'm driving. That being said, I'm still very happy with my purchase, no regrets about moving away from iPhone. The battery life is fantastic, graphics great, and I know there are many other features on here I just haven't learned yet.

    Overall it is very nice phone. It has a lot of different functions and settings that I have not mastered yet. The screen is great and very clear, coming from my previous phone which I had for 4 years before it bit the dust. I like the keyboard is fairly spaced out and I don't fat finger as much compared to my previous phone. However, I am still getting used to the curved screen, which I was not initially fond of it. But I do like the quick menu shortcut on the side, which can be customized. Overall, I am enjoying this phone so far after couple of weeks owning it.

    I know the commercials show you all the features about the camera and larger screen, blah, blah. I bumped from a Galaxy 6 to the 9+ because the charger chords wouldn't stay plugged in, my battery life was draining incredibly fast, and it was taking forever to access internet sites and get messages. With the 9+, I feel like I'm on a bullet train. And the battery life, I spent an entire day snapping shots and video taping my son at his soccer camp and I still had 50% of my battery left when we got back to the hotel that night! By the way, really great shots with the two lens feature. They weren't kidding about that.

    I love this phone. I had trouble with my last phone losing battery life really quickly and I couldn't count on it to have any charge left after only about 2 hours. This phone holds the charge for 2 days with normal use. I can play games on it for hours without needing to charge it. I can watch videos for hours and still have plenty of battery left to get me through the day. The camera is outstanding and I use it all the time to get action of my grandson playing baseball. It has a slow motion video option that catches action in slow motion and really is a neat feature.

    This thing is the big reason I left iPhone in the dust. The S9 is an incredible platform. The battery lasts, the processor is fast, video is true HD, sound is great and the phone learns your personality, in a way. Your voice, typing habits are all picked up by the phones computer and it adjusts to you. This is great for GOOGLE TALK, BIXBY, and texting..Be sure to buy an otter box or something similar to protect your investment. The screen is very large and like everything it should be protected

    This is my second Samsung phone. My first was an S7. I liked it well enough to buy this S9 Plus. Although the screen is awesome and definitely has the cool factor by wrapping text over the curved edges of the screen, I don't find that selecting anything does nearly as well on those curved edges as it does elsewhere. Love facial recognition access to phone, and would love it even more if it worked in the dark. It appears not to have any sort of infrared though. But that's okay, because the pin number always works in the dark. Love the phone.

    WOW what difference. I'm coming from a MOTO Z force this phone is leaps and bounds above what the moto had. don't get me wrong i do think that the moto had some cool features (twist for camera, and chop for light, and the unbreakable screen) that i miss. But EVERYTHING else is way better. This phone is fast, doesn't eat the battery because of the OS, and has the best looking screen in the Android market. I'm not a guy that has to have the latest and greatest, so i hope this phone will continue to preform like it is now for a long time

    Big Upgrade

    I upgraded from a Droid RAZR MAXX HD which I'd had, and really liked, for 5 years. This phone is certainly bigger, though not too big, and it's features are easy to assimilate if you're accustomed to an Android operating system. My reason for upgrading? Best Buy had a great offer and I always feel comfortable shopping there because the reps don't work on commission. Like any time one buys a new tech device, I'll be playing with this one for days if not weeks learning all of its new and innovative features. A nice phone that even an old guy (71) like myself can feel comfortable with.

    I like the phone especially from switching from my Note 5. It's a little different from my Note 5 I like not having the buttons. A little hard to get used to especially with Bixby. I find myself especially not as technical as most shutting off all of Bixby. I believe that I would and we'll use this phone a lot especially for photos calendars because I have a lot of appointments. I also like listening to my music on it YouTube. As I said I'm not real technical on my phone but there's a lot of things that are good with this phone. I really do like the sound on it.

    I have ZERO regrets about dumping Apple for this phone. There is a slight learning curve, but nothing one cannot handle. I was able to install all my apps and set up the screens so they were identical. I was also able to transfer my music from iTunes to Google Play Music with no problem. I love this phone and everyday I find something I like more about it. Also, I bought the Frontier S3 Smartwatch because my Apple watch died and Apple wanted $200 for an estimate. Best Buy matched Costco's online price and I got the Frontier for $269. The Frontier is superior to the Apple Watch as well.

    came from an iPhone 6 to the s9+. Everything is great about this phone. I put a case on it because it's easy to touch the screen on the edges without it, but I always use cases so it wasn't a con. The only con I can think of is the Bixby button is right below the volume button and I was always accidently pushing it. However, having a thicker case got rid of the issue. Everything looks good on the HD screen, reception is great, battery life is long, oh and the speakers are surprisingly good. Sounds like an external speaker is plugged in. I def recommend this phone.

    I used to be able to go 3 days on a battery with my iPhone 7 plus. I recently switched from apple to android and this is the one I chose. Design is beautiful and size is great. Camera is amazing and it does things pretty quickly. Only thing that sucks is the battery life. When taken off the charger it goes down 10% in the first hour even if I'm not using it. There has been several times when my phone has died when I'm out and about which sucks. It's a very nice phone, but if battery life is what your biggest concern is with a phone this probably isn't for you.

    Samsung Galaxy S9+ is a winner

    I had the S8+ until I microwaved it (don't ask) and had to replace it. Liked the S8+ and I really like that the S9+ is exactly the same size physically, with a nicer camera lens. It's my third or fourth Samsung and I would buy it again the next time I need a new phone - just hoping it won't be quite so soon. The S8+ was doing fine and I expected to keep it longer - I expect to keep the S9+ for a few years before it needs to be replaced. No electronic issues with any of my Samsung phones so I expect this one will last.

    In the last year I went from an iPhone 6S+ to a Google Pixel XL because I was told that the Pixel had the best camera yet. And of course, my iPhone was outdated. To make a long story short, my Pixel XL sucked. So I let my son's talk me into a Samsung S9+ and I've never looked back. Sure, it's a learning curve but the camera is beyond anything I could've asked for, the screen is clear, the sound is amazing; I just couldn't ask for anything better. I'm hoping it stays in good shape for a long time because frankly, I am tired of going through phones when technology changes.

    I upgraded to this phone because can take better photos. Only I really like new reversible power cords. Only problem I have is I had just spent lot money on 128 gb card. I've had lots problems with this phone working with this card. I had no issues with my Galaxy S7. They say I need buy another card and problem should go away. Lot money to spend especially after just spending over thousand dollars on this phone and accessories needed to protect it. Could not use any from my other phone.

    Picked up 2 Samsung S9 Plus phones for wife and myself. Got $300 off each phone with current deal. Really like them so far except that the USB-c adapter that it came with is totally useless. It has male usb-c to fit the phone on one end, but the other end is a regular usb female connection. It would be OK if it was a female micro usb so it could be used with my old power cords from the S5s I replaced.
