    When they brought this side cropping menu option to the S8+ I was thrilled. I'm sure the S9+ will have it. What's cool about the Note 8 is it has this menu option and the S pen.Getting the S9+ and keeping my N8-20180113_062625.jpg

    I'm gonna keep my Note8. No reason to get the S9/+ or the Note 9. I'll most likely upgrade when the Note 10 comes out. The Note8 does everything I need and more

    If I were getting a large phone hands down it would be the note , it’s always a tiny step ahead of everything else imo.

    I cannot see jumping to another phone when my perfectly running Note 8 that will wind up costing me $275.00 is the best phone that I've ever used.

    The more I read about the S9 series, there's just no real upgrades over the note 8. There are some minimal things but that's it. Less ram, smaller screen, no S pen for $1000? It's def a no for me. The Note 9 is the only phone that can take the note 8 off of the throne.

    Having had both the S8 and N8 at release, I will try and show restraint this time.

    The rumoured camera interests me, little else. Might finally manage some half decent shots.

    Will be keeping the N8 regardless. Until the N9 comes out.

    Usually buy the newest Note at release but given the Note 7 debacle I couldn't wait and purchased S8+.

    Have tried putting off cash purchase of Note 8 but I'm weak and must have one today.

    Haven't seen any legitimate deals and I'm not going to activate a new line. What to do?

    Get an unlocked version perhaps.

    I agree, I had a regular s8 and upgraded to the note 8 and now I will never go back to the s series

    While I have no doubt that the S9/S9+ will be awesome, I'll wait for the Note 9. The Note 8 will get a refresh with Oreo. Even if it didn't, the Note 8 does everything I need it to and more. Then we will see how much of a leap the Note 9 is from the Note 8.

    Honestly, no.

    There’s nothing on the S9 that really makes me think that I want it now.

    Yes, I love the improvements they made. The f/1.5 lens than can switch to f/2.4 in daylight and then back again for low light, the stereo speakers and the other stuff.

    It’s just that, in the grand scheme of things, these improvements aren’t all that significant to me. Sure, the Snapdragon 845 is beefier than the 835, but am I really going to be noticing a lot of it in my daily use? The aperture looks awesome but is that going to dramatically improve my photos? Stereo speakers I love, but since getting my 1000XM2s, speaker quality has sorta just become a bonus point for me.

    I’m not saying the S9 is going to be bad. It’s so far shaping up to be one of the top phones released so far in the year. But as a Note8 user, I feel that even a Note9 isn’t likely to make me upgrade. I’ve said it before that I plan to keep this phone for 3 years at least and I will be sticking to that. Plus, Oreo will bring features like LDAC support for my 1000XM2s among other things along with a healthy performance jump.

    I think this is what happens in a matured market. There really isn’t anything new to get excited about these days. Probably the thing we need most of all are better batteries.

    Hell NO! I don't have a money tree. :-)

    I spent a boat load of money buying the S8+ and Note 8 in 2017 so I won't be donating to the Samsung fund for a while.

    Seriously though, I find that upgrading tech at least every 2 years is the way the go. I don't see a whole lot of difference from one year to the next.

    Stereo speakers is a plus and always nice when there is an upgrade in camera and the smaller form factor might make it a better carry phone than my Note 8...

    But the 4gb ram is a major step back.

    Haven't experiences the lag issue on my Note known to happen over time in other Galaxies and will contribute this most likely to the 6gb of memory. Not interested in finding out on a 4gb Samsung.

    Nope. My S8+ running Oreo release (Official leak) is running far too well to justify another down payment on a phone that's not really much nicer to justify the down payment and new 18month contract. I always pay off my phone's first so I can sell them to pay for a lot of the new one. Simply nothing new enough to justify it so I always wait the 2 years so I'll be getting the SX or whatever they'll be calling it it maybe Note 9 in a year or so... we'll see what comes out and for what price but now? no way....no I certainly give to justify it.

    agreed. my S8+ is 0LENTY fast and even faster since I updated it with the Oreo leak last week so I'll definitely be waiting until it's paid off and then go up to the note 9 or SX (or whatever they'll name the S10 we'll see) but not enough features it speed increase over the S8+ to justify another 18mo contract and 137.00 down payment. I always pay mine off so I can sell them outright unlocked to help pay for the new device which usually covers about half of it or so depending on the one I upgrade to at the time
