    Flawless Note 8 that I got on day 1. Camera, never use it. S Pen, love it. Finger print sensor location, perfect (I always get to use my middle finger)

    I don't care for the S pen and I gravitated more towards the S8+ after it was released. I was always a Note guy because of the size of the device and other features but I never cared for the stylus - I have no need for it. since the S8+ is almost identical in size and features now, I'm going with the 9+. if you already have a Note8 I don't see too much reason to upgrade.

    Keeping my Note8 for as long as I can

    It still does most of what I want it to do and while the S9 camera looks mighty good, I don't think it will be that better than what my Note8 is able to kick out.

    Sticking with the Note 8. j Will did a video today about this and he said if you have the Note 8 there really is no reason to get the s9.

    As he said, the Note line is totally different from the S line. Two different types of phones basically. The s9 they're focusing on social media and taking pics use. The Note is for us power users. The Note line is still the most premium Samsung line of devices, over the s line. Now if this was like the Note 7 fiasco and I was stuck with the S7 edge then hell yes I'd upgrade to the S9 plus. I upgraded from the s7 edge, V20 to the s8 Plus because I HATED the small screen of the s7 edge and didn't like the V20. That was a no brainer. But having a Note 8 wouldn't be an upgrade especially since I don't have use for slow motion or social media toy gimmics.

    I will be getting the Note 9 in September though! I noticed the unlocked s9 plus is $840 from Samsung. Hopefully that means the unlocked Note 9 will be around the same as last year.

    I think I will buy the unlocked Note 9 this time. Since Samsung devices fully work with Tmobile including wifi calling. That way it will make it easier to sell it when I get the Note 10.

    S9 isn't much of an upgrade, some nice features but nothing game changing

    For all the complaints I read about the finger print sensor I actually like it. As long as you use it left handed it's in a great spot.

    For me, the iris scanner has been remarkably fast. It's about as quick or faster than a pin.

    That's the only thing that they have over my Note 8 that would sway me so I can wait for the Note 9 and see what it has to offer!

    I'm sure the Note 9 will have stereo speakers just like the s9. Plus it will get all the s9 features plus some. And the note should refine all the features the s9 has. That's how it works normally. The s9 gets new features then the note line comes out with all the same plus some.

    I'll wait it out. Enjoy everyone enjoying the s9 and wait for my time. It will be exciting for sure.

    My Note8 went from flawless on Day 1 to being one of many that developed a freezing problem while on standby starting in November. I'm definitely trading it in for an S9. The regular S9, not the plus (despite Samsung not treating the two equally).

    I had to get a warranty replacement Note 8 about 2-3 weeks ago. Been ok since then. I am interested in the S9+ but want to see it first. Still not saying I would get out of the Note 8.

    I don't plan on it but I still want to check out that S9+. Love my note. went through 2 mandatory recalls on the Note 7. Waited a year and went through h*** with phones during that time that weren't measuring up. The S8+ was actually VERYnice. Still went with the Note 8 though as that line just has something about it that fits just right.

    Unless you are someone who changes phone often, then I don't see the point to get a S9+ if you already have a Note 8.

    Of course that said, if you still want the S9+, get it for these reasons:

    1) I am a camera geek and love variable apertures
    2) I take a lot of night shots and my Note 8 sucks at that
    3) I hate the finger print location in my Note 8
    4) I WANT THE NEW ANIMOJIS, excuse me, AR EMOJIS!
    5) I hate my S Pen and don't use it
    6) I just don't like my Note 8
    I get this inkling that you don't like your note 8? Lol

    Jokes aside. My iPhone filled family requests I use my note 8 for pics all the time over theirs. They seem to like the results more than their iphone 6, 7 and 8. Is there another phone you've used with better night shots? Are you just assuming the S9 does better?

    Serious questions. Not trying to defend note 8.

    I actually gotten used to it. I can relearn the position if I like the phone I'm upgrading to enough lol

    True, but the Note line is still Samsungs king. Expect the Note 9 to be an upgrade over the S9 Plus.

    The Note line is geared towards heavy power users. The S line is not. Although the S9 Plus can be used for power using, the Note is with the power user and professional user in mind.

    Now when there was no more Note 7 and the S8 Plus came out, yes that was the only thing Samsung had for power users and I bought it. The s line is still geared for a different group.

    I will be getting the Note 9 and holding off on the S9 Plus.
