    I am switching from a S8 to S9+. A bit concerned with the size but S8 is a bit narrow for typing; now the difference between the 9/9+ is much more than size.

    S8 camera wasn't that good so excited about this and the overall performance improvement.

    S8/S8+ were great phones so I was not expecting much change but refinement on certain areas.

    I think S9+ delivers on both but not great specs are different to each size now.
    The S9 is a bit wider than the S8. IMO it's the perfect size. I agree that the S8 was a bit too narrow.

    The S9 is also a bit thicker. It certainly felt different in the hand than the S8 when I compared the two in the T-Mobile store.

    The S9+ also feels bigger in the hand than the S8+.

    Just keep all that in mind if you like one-handed use all the time. The regular S9 is more ideal size wise than both the S8 and the S9+.

    The glass was thickened 20% to help mitigate cracks. Also tougher metal for frame.

    I'm enjoying my dual camera, 64gb of storage, 6gb of memory and a large screen on my Note 8. I feel this year was a phone in option in the new S9 series. I hope they have some great surprise for the Note 9 or I'm not going anywhere untill the next generation

    Note 8 and Plus still rock. That said, the faster chip for emulators, better camera and kick butt good speaker quality are nice to me. Still on the fence, even though preordered. 8 Plus is fine. I keep noticing the speakers though and great low light pics, plus optical zoom..... The fence is getting shaky.

    Same but I ordered the S9. Liking the size of my Essential so went with the non plus. It really doesn't matter as I'll be jumping to the 9+ next month and then onto something else a month after that. I change phones monthly.

    Do you buy cases when you change that frequently

    For me, the s9 plus is a nice preview of what may come out on the Note 9.

    I literally just bought an international exynos version of the S8 after my G6's screen shattered. i only paid $400 brand new off Amazon, so I dont see any reason to switch to the S9 for a physical aperture and a few fake animojis? I'm not that gullible. Also, im not a professional photographer and the S8 takes incredible photos. to upgrade for minute changes in photo quality is conspicuous consumption at its finest and is not something I subscribe to.

    I just pre ordered the Galaxy S9+ in Coral Blue! I am trading in my Iphone 6 and got the 100 off at best buy pre order so I am getting it for 664.99. I am excited, as it is a major upgrade from the Iphone. It is my first time going with Android so a bit nervous, but I hope everything works out well. I am tired of the Iphone, been using it for 10 years now, time for a change!

    I would definitely switch to the S9+ if only I could arrange the funds, otherwise, the Note8 is still a fantastic partner

    Hoping to get the S9Plus Monday/Tuesday based on the UPS activity. The good thing is I've got up to 30 days to decide: Return the S9Plus, or return the Note 8. I'm curious to see if we have better connectivity with the new S9 Plus - will see soon!!

    So what were you using before this last month? I’m on the fence. I miss some iOS things but the X as good as many things are there are a lot of things that feel like hacks. I feel for the price I’m missing out on quite a few real options with Google and I know I’ll be missing speedy OS updates and then the typical Samsung complaints that go with having one. But man that S9 Plus is looking nice with that camera for low light. I’m getting my new puppy soon and I want the best Camera possible for crisp pics so I’m leaning Pixel or S9.

    I'm torn too. I love my 8+ and I had the x but it was too narrow. I like the app quality, the updates, the fluidity, and how well everything syncs but the s9 seems appealing. It's always software vs hardware for me I love the Samsung hardware but their software experience isn't as good in my opinion

    I may get an S9+. I’m still weighing it against the Note 8.
    Do it for the speakers they're very good I checked them out at best buy yesterday they're on par with iPhone

    That’s always what gets me. The X is appealing but still seems lacking. I’m sure the camera on the S9+ will be exceptional but in a world that Google is creating amazing photos nearly every time you push the button all other devices will be judged against that. I feel a good reviewer should be able to judge and review the device on it’s own merits instead of ranking everything against other devices. Like does it take quick photos and keep moving objects in focus or do they get motion blue due to the camera being unable to fire quick shots.
