    The Galaxy S9 and S9 Plus from Samsung didn't sell well at launch but it has come down so much in price that it's probably the best value phone on the market right now. Thanks for watching!

    I think mate 20 its a lot better phone than the s9 plus. Cheaper and better in all ways except video recording.

    +Dave Lee, @Dave Lee: but the problem with buying samsung phone after almost a year is the slowdown, I strongly have this feeling that the push updates that intentionally slowdown the phone, iPhone was brave enough to announce that and blame the battery life to do so, but never gonna admit to that point and doing it from the backdoor. they are amazing phone when they are released. the drop amount can be justified by the age of its smoothness and getting updates which by time decreases as if choosing between C-Ronaldo or Kylian Mbappé if it make sense

    ♥️ s9+ no hole no notch. fingerprint at the back.

  • Rijul Kaji Kasaju

    That's not fair giving S9 the award because there are people who bought this phone at the launch price and for them, its not a $500 phone. Whatever you say, S9 is an expensive phone. If the price drop is to be considered, then a year or two years old phone would be much much better value for money. Considering price drops, S8 would be a better bet

    I have an S9 since release and they are a really good deal used at $350. Also One UI made the phone much better. I am tradeing it for the S10 though

    Yeah, while everybody is copying apple. Samsung did something different, they copied their previous version.
    Just like how i copied homework from my one year course older cousin.

      Most phones do heat up, mine does as well, play video games in a ventilated area or get a battery temp monitor... it's an app... usually gaming can cause it to go to 38-40 degrees Celsius... especially if the game is demanding and u play it for a long time

    • realicepick1
      realicepick1 7 months ago

      Trade it to Samsung for 550 and buy the s10e for 200. Win or the s10 for 350. My last phones were nexus 6p, s7e, and 1p6t..rhe s10 is a beast and my wife has the note 10, and son an iPhone xr. S10 is the shit.

      S9 is what S8 should've been and more, go for the S9
      The real upside at least for besides all the hardware upgrades is the location of the fingerprint sensor in the S9
