    Finger scanners rarely work for me due to where i work. Im in an industrial factory so me phone an hands are subjected to steel goin in places they dont belong, breaks, sparks, paint, dust etc. My j5 has been great for a cheapo entry phone. The s9 should be better

    "You'll like Bixby, when it understands you"
    English isn't my native language, so Bixby often doesn't understand what I'm saying. Never felt more self-conscious about telling my phone to turn the flashlight on 😭

    s9+ was striped by samsung by steeling video pro mode after update so if
    you want to buy it because of it... don't. s10 also does not have it...
    so go to some other smartphone labels.... they trick and lied to sell

    To everyone saying get the s10 over the s9.. here's the situation with that.. not much difference, except the price. I went into Tmobile to upgrade my Samsung Galaxy s7 Edge and being a customer for 5 years I can pretty much walk in and get anything I want with no money down, just pay the taxes and walk out. I asked about the s10 and they wanted $225 down and $30/mo. The s9 was $0 down and $25/mo. I like to save money.. I went with the s9. Best phone I've ever had does everything I need and more! Got my son the same phone last weekend for his 13th birthday. Upgraded his from an LG. The s9 is on sale right now for $650.

    If you actually get these Dbrand skins on the phones, which have glass backs, and you drop the phones, will it in any way protect the phone as a case would? or is it literally just a skin on top of the glass?

      +Ahmad El-Hindi I will believe and will apologize if you will create and upload properly taken video proof - in which you without editing/cutting in one long video shot will show the version of update, smartphone model etc. will explain how do you use split screen (screen recording).

    Loved my new Galaxy S9 since January. Great feature: fast-charging charger! In the meantime, received a few software updates. Great, too. HOWEVER: since the last software update two days ago, the fast charging is gone, and I get the same doodoo I got with my old S4: 'Make sure you use the charger that came with the device' .... and charging now takes hours again!!!
    If anybody has similar problems and/or has an idea what to do, PLEASE let me know!!!

    Dude just when apple crashes and finally releases iOS to other phones and companies make the hardware compatible I’m leaving Apple for good cuz I have tried Samsung and I love the freedom with downloading and battery life but I just couldn’t stand the UI and so I switched to the 7 plus. I’m sure lots of you guys agree with me
