    Yes, but the Note 9 might launch at the end of July. Will you go get the Note 9 then? I got the itch but like last year when I bought the s8 plus I went ahead and got Note 8.

    I think the only way I'd purchase the s9 plus is IF the price of the Note 9 is insane like $1000. Especially if it's only a minor bump over the Note 8. Then I'd bite and get the s9 plus especially with the deals.

    If the Note 9 is insane price of $1000 or more I'll keep my Note 8 and wait for the S10.

    Hopefully, they tweak the camera software for better quality. Samsung would be insane to raise prices from the Note8 if sales are already under achieving on the S9/S9+.

    Sales are flattening for everybody. Especially, in the premium market. It's because of market saturation.

    I'll probably hold off on anything new for a while. The camera on the Note 8 is still a excellent.

    I had the S9+ for a couple weeks when it first came out. I returned it because I think the Note 8 camera is better.

    The Note 8 is giving me the best pictures I ever got on a mobile device. I see a lot of issues being discussed about the S9. I'm hoping it is software, and will be fixed by Note 9. However, after reading a lot about the issue, I'm not so sure it's software only.

    From what I have seen, the battery stats of the S9+ are not that much different from the Note8s.

    So you are saying the Note8 has no MIMO or QAM tech?
    That's strange as I am sure it was mentioned here

    Dont be fooled... I have both. The S9 Plus camera is definitely better but it is really hard to differentiate if you print both the photos and compare them...

    If you compare S8 Plus against S9 Plus yes you would definitely see the difference... But Note 8 against S9 Plus is very minor if you ask me...

    I'll upgrade when 5G devices are available. Minor upgrades are not worth hundreds of dollars

    5G really won't get up to speed for at least another 2 years I'm guessing. In the meantime the Note 8 is equipped to run some form of 5g like AT&T 5G Evolution platform.

    In the meantime, I'm pretty happy with 4G performance in my area.

    Ok the S9+ is better but not major leaps but I wonder why YouTubers don't use the n8 more with camera comparisons with the new one plus and other newer phones

    I agree... i think that the note 8 was the most under rated phone by Youtubers who fell in love with the pixel xl... ugh.

    By that time the S10 will be $1100..
    And still cheaper than the rest of the world for the US.

    It's ridiculous how prices of smartphones continue to rise every year. But, pc components, with the exception of some fluctuations in market demand, continue to be the same, year after year for similarly specced components.
    Is it the manufacturing process due to the screens?
    Or, is it just manufacturers like Samsung and Apple just taking advantage of everyone? When I hear reports that mention "record profits", I'm tending to lean towards the latter.

    Actually I believe that phones like Apple's and Samsung's are far past the pc industry. Technically pc is still using old dos to run anything. The architecture for cell phones has past the need for old school base programming. You actually hold more power in the hand than that crap tower or laptop has. Now if you build a 16 cpu based system you can load it down, but who does that these days. I believe that is why Apple is moving away from Intel for the future. It's sad when I can encode and create video content faster on my ipad pro than on my desktop. In my opinion I think Apple and Samsung should team up and take over as one. Steve Jobs would have cringed at that thought until you showed him the reality of users that could be gained from that move.

    Apple and Samsung are businesses. They will charge what people will pay. If people stop buying, they will make changes. "Record profits" shows a successful business model. No one has to buy an iPhone or a Galaxy, but millions are. My handset is my number one tool for my work. I admit I am willing to pay a premium for what works best for me. All my record keeping, logs, access to project records held on our office systems, all forms of comunication, spreadsheets, Onenote, Onedrive, schedules, on and on and on - I run my projects from this thing. It's actually amazing what these hand held devices can do. I am more impressed by my handset than I am with my desktop PC.

    They've said that years ago. Besides, Microsoft actually came up with the phone dock system first, it's called Continuum.

    It was just as functional. It did the same exact thing. The problem was that Microsoft phones went extinct.

    If you had a Continuum capable phone, it would even work with BT keyboards and mice and miracast compatible wireless display adapters.
