    I won't be. I'm tired of Samsung software's poor performance. Every iteration anymore everyone swears there's no lag and then after 3 months there's a ton of lag anyway.

    I've never had a Samsung device lag on me over time, but I've been disappointing in my last few Note devices. The Note7's battery debacle plus the Note8's freezing issues. I'm using a Nokia 8 right now which I love, but I'll be trading in my Note8 for the S9. Just wish it had the same RAM and camera as the S9+

    Haven't had this problem myself, but I purposely don't install many apps to my phone. On any android, things get weird when there are a lot of apps. Not like my iphone where i can install as many things as I want and it's fine.

    I want to get the S9+ but only with the 7910 processor which I’ve read isn’t going to be in the US version. I’ve got a trip to Australia planned for March and if it’s out then and I can pick up an unlocked version I’ll get one.

    Samsung’s history of shipping last gen processors to the US and the latest and greatest to Asia/ROW really pisses me off.

    What are you talking about? At the time of release, the SD 835 *was* the latest & greatest.

    And the S9 will be the first phone with the SD845.

    This is what I was referring to, ROW gets 9810 (used the wrong processor # above) and US gets SD845. Jury still out on performance difference between the two:

    I should qualify my statement by saying latest & greatest available in the US. Keep in mind that Samsung optimizes Android better for Exynos than they do for Snapdragon. Still, for real-world tasks there won't be much, if any, noticeable differences (unless the primary use of your phone is to run benchmarks).

    Nonesense. No lag on my S8 or my Note 8. Both very heavily used from release.

    Absolutely no lag at my S8+ and I'm a very heavy user with over 100 downloaded apps.

    I'm due to upgrade from my Nexus 6P, so I might go with the S9+ depending on how the stereo speakers sound. I don't have any experience with anything from AKG, but I hope the speakers sound as good as BoomSound on HTC.

    I'm sure the leaks all say "tuned by AKG". As the headphones in the S8 / N8 were. Means they are still cheap made by some 3rd party. And utter pish.

    I will likely get it. Since leaving my S8, I had an iPhone X, 8 plus, Pixel 2 and G6. None of them compare to what Samsung offers. Individually, they may do one or two things better, but none are the whole package like Samsung phones are.

    I currently have an S7 Edge and I'm interested in the S9+. Will I actually get one? That remains to be seen, I still may go Pixel 2XL. I like Samsung's software since they lightened up and I usually drop in Nova launcher when I need a change. But I would like to have stock android as well with no bloatware. The camera may end up being the decider.

    I like Samsung phones but I love the page swipe on iPhone now. Have had all the note and s series. Not sure if I'll get back to Android unless Android implement the swipe function. However, the S9+ seems tempting so far.

    I don't get this argument anymore. "Stock" android is a white elephant. Why would you want it? What difference would it make?
    What is stock anyway? AOSP ? , That runs like a bag of nails.

    I think stock is light, fast and great for those who want that. Personally, after trying the Pixel 2 and iPhone X, I like both phones very much. But I find myself missing the Samsung bells and whistles. A Samsung phone is the only type I could keep for more than a year without getting bored. There’s just always features to discover, and they always come up with things that takes iOS and other Android phones years to finally adopt.

    Yeah, find myself liking the bells and whistles more and more these days. Great when stuff just works.

    My Samsung is no less fast or light than my OP3 / 3T / 5 / Pixel was.

    Mostly it is clean without duplicate apps that take up space and cannot be uninstalled. On a Pixel it also means 3 years of updates. I like the overall Samsung package, but having all the duplicate apps I will never use taking up space just bugs me.

    My Nokia 8 running stock seems like a lighter, snappier, more elegant device to use overall than my Note8. Doesn't help that my particular Note8 is one of those with a freezing issue on standby, but the Nokia made me miss that stock experience, especially in such an attractive, light, thin, yet very well-built form-factor.

    For that reason, if I get an S9 it'll probably be the regular variant and not the Plus.

    I would just assume delete the Google stuff (except assistant) and go with the stock Samsung apps. Samsung Pay, Internet Browser and their theme store are things I surely miss

    Considering the Nokia 8 for my wife next. The form factor is important to her.
