    Hey guys, just wanted to hear some of your opinions about the new phone since it's getting officially announced today and if you are gonna upgrade or wait for the S10 or another phone altogether

    Personally, I got my S8 from best buy unlocked for $424 (sale plus trade in of a S6)

    So if I can get $400 ish for my S8 and find the S9 with a deal (best buy usually offers a huge discount a few weeks after release or like a $200 gift card with purchase) then I'm all for giving the S9 a shot, I know it's not a huge upgrade but I usually hold phones for years and years so maybe this year I'm gonna upgrade right away (if the price is right)

    Not nearly enough of an upgrade for me. I'll wait on the S10 although I'll see what the Note 9 has to offer.

    Hell yeah. Much improvement to the camera that exceeds the Note 8 and much faster chip. However, most likely the Note 9 will focus on the screen (more resolution and dolby vision?) and fingerprint sensor under the screen. Samsung seems to focus on things on each line and they chose camera focus for the S9 line.

    Yes, improved camera, Tmo 600mhz support, improved wifi with simultaneous dual band support and Bluetooth to multi device simultaneously. I'm sure there's more, this was enough for me.

    How does this work? I was reading about it and they confused me when they said they will apply credit for the payments you have made.

    Can you explain what they mean?

    I'm going to wait and see what's happening with the note 9 and X then pick between the two. If the X is a folding phone I might pass since that really new tech can be sorta glitchy.

    Can upgrade every year with sprint. Not much I want to upgrade. Going to wait and see what the Note 9 has to offer in August.

    I'll wait it out for the note 9 the note 9 will get everything the s9 has and added features. Plus I do use the s pen a lot so I'll wait. It will be hard because I love new phones. We will see if I have the strength to wait it out lol.

    I am already up for a upgrade for verizon. I am paying the S8 monthly and as long as i pay at least 50% of the phone, I can upgrade free of charge. I perfer this route than paying full price for a phone.

    I'm on the same path with ATT I'm waiting for March 2nd to get here for my pre order. I just hope the globe offers the blue @ launch.

    probably not. i only got the s8 plus because i wanted a bigger screened phone and i was told by a Samsung rep that there would be no note 8. I'm going to try to wait for the note 9. It's going to be so hard to wait. I'm itching to upgrade so bad. I haven't held on to the same phone for more than a year in a while.

    Satisfied with my S8 Plus and my camera use is minimal so no.
    Will be interested in what the Note 9 may have to offer.
    (this coming from a self-confessed phone addict, so take it with a grain of salt)

    As far as I know it's a rolling two year contract where I get the option to upgrade once a year and then start another two year contract. If I don't upgrade then I just pay for the phone over the two years. I'll always be upgrading....

    Low light camera on the S9+ is going to be so much better than my V30, and I'm finding it is such an important feature... my S7 Edge took better pics in low light than V30. Not even using the quad dac, so yes, I'm upgrading, can't wait!

    I'll probably wait and see what the Note 9 has to offer in a few months. The S9 and S9+ seem to be only refinements of the S8 and S8+, they upgraded the camera, moved the fingerprint scanner, added stereo speakers, added AR emojis and minor CPU upgrades. My Note 8 would probably be good enough to last me a good 2-3 years; however, I'll probably upgrade later in the year after the Note 9 drops or sometimes next year when the S10 drops. I feel like Samsung went conservative with this release to add a bunch of features next year to their 10th anniversary phone.

    Not a close call. Unless someone offers a premium phone w/replaceable battery and stylus I'll stay put with Note 8. And that ain't going to happen.

    Sadly after using the Galaxy s5 after 3 years of use, I got the note 8 last month so probably no.

    I'm not due for a phone upgrade til September.

    But I'm trying to decide if I want the S9+ which is a little bit bigger than the S9 or if I should get the S9 which is probably about the size of my S7 Edge.

    No. I got the Note 8. Hardly any upgrades with the s9 plus. I dont care about slow motion and I'm not obsessed with stupid texting icons and that. The S line is geared towards a different group. Note is for more power users.

    I WILL be buying the Note 9. No doubt about that. At least I got a great device to hold me off. It was REALLY painful giving up the Note 7 and then using the crappy S7 Edge and V20. I jumped all over the s8 plus the second pre orders went live.
