    I went from the S8 to the S9 and found very little difference. The main change was the finger print reader at the back. The S8's reader was beside the camera and the S9's is below the camera. It took my finger a while to develop the muscle memory but now I get fewer finger prints on the camera. The new reader is quicker and more reliable than the one on the S8 which was known to have some issues. Generally the S9 feels like an S8 with some of the bugs worked out. I would definitely wait for the S10 if you want the latest and greatest technology. On the other hand, getting the S9 now, or once the S10 is officially announced, will mean that you should be able to pick it up for a great price for a good reliable phone.

    The S9 is junk, wait for a phone with 5G. The buttons are difficult to find on the S9 (bring back my S7), the screen protector peels off the curved screen, and the curved screen causes me to accidentally touch app icons. Further, you cannot shut off Bixby, you can only modify how it is enabled. The Alarm defaults to Bixby Voice and you CANNOT change it. If you want to use an alarm (like morningglory), you must select it every time. Further, without the HOME button, you cannot tell if the phone is upside down or not by feel. Junk.

    Screen protectors are available now which fit properly on curved mobiles.

    I'm considering getting the S10 once the next one comes out when it should be cheaper. To replace the S8...
    I just got to a point where I think $1,500 for a phone that isn't much different from the old one every year is not justifiable for me any more. My S8 is ticking along OK, but I may get the S10 when the S11 is out and they try to get rid of them for a better price...

    You can shut off bixby complete with an app called package disabler (PD MDM). It was worth the buy and lets you disable many other sammy crap you don't need. My button does absolutely nothing now. This along with Nova Launcher is a great phone, for me.

    Meh. BxActions would be a better choice. At least you aren't left with a useless button. You get a button that you can remap the press, double press, long press, double press and hold to a lot of actions or apps. Heck you can have different actions for a locked phone and unlocked phone.

    i use this app as well and i find it to be a life saver, especially when i first got it because i bumped that godd@mn button like every tome i was trying to change the volume. I instinctively used my intuition for spatial placement of my fingers as ive been using samsung phones since the S3 and would inexorably end up hitting that little mutherfooker.... over... and over.... and over............ now it does nothing when the screen is on and launches the camera when the screen is off. Finally retrained my fingers to go where the volume buttons actually are vs where my muscle memory thought they were lol
