    I checked one out yesterday at Best Buy while waiting for an interview. Very nice. But I'm a Note guy and will wait for the Note 9.

    Don't forget about the ram and memory bump on the s9+. I want one unlocked but not sure if it will be compatible with 4g calling/volte on EE. Which is something I've been missing on the s8+ as well as the s7 edge and the s6 edge I used prior. Anyone tried one from carphone warehouse or so?

    When you guys get it can someone who used a s8 speak on the width differences and if the s9 is easier to type on? Since it's about 0.06 wider than the s8.

    Thanks
    That difference isn't going to make a difference in typing it.

    In my opinion the bump from S8 does not justify the purchase of S9. However I do not doubt the changes in the camera might urge people to upgrade.

    Debating myself. I like the finger print sensor location on my GS8 better aesthetically. I do not like the larger camera hump even though I am sure it is a necessity with the upgraded sensor. The only think that draws me to the GS9 is the super slow mo, and that is more a novelty (not sure how many times it would practically be used).
    I just started using the Slow Mode on my GS8+ for my son's track events and I find it nice. I wonder if the Super Slow mode removes the one we currently have, which doesnt have the time limit of the new feature.

    Only a spec bump? Yes. Still, may be worth it for the camera upgrade plus overall spec bumps seem to have worked out some of the smaller annoying kinks in the past. I have Samsung for life option, so I am going to use it whereas I might have skipped a generation before that...

    At this point in bland yearly releases, you need to wait at least 2 years for the bump in specs is noticable.

    What do you think - is the S9 simply a spec bump, or a worthwhile upgrade from the S8?
    That's a question where the answer will vary from person to person. I believe that yes, it's just a spec jump -- but the spec's that jumped make it a worthwhile upgrade for me. Specifically, the improved camera, screen brightness and the stereo speakers. As for the FP reader... I'm probably one of the very very few who like the FP reader position on the S8+. It just works for me.

    All that said, I won't be making the upgrade until/unless the black version becomes available in Canada. Neither the purple or light grey work for me. I don't want to risk any warranty hassles if I imported a black one from the US.

    Oh well, maybe I'll wait to see what happens with the Note 9.

    I've been wanting to get back into the Note family. I think I will wait until the Note 9 comes out.

    I'm gonna sit tight and see what Samsung offers for incentives. Personally I didn't see enough to make me move away from the S8.

    I'm having a hard time justifying replacing my S7 with one, I'm tempted to just replace my battery.

    Yup, exactly this, and it's been like that for quite some time now. Phones have been great for some time now, with the exception of some persisting issues like faster software updates across the board, and even midrange phones are more than capable. Just like most people mentioned already it's really the camera, right placement of the finger print scanner, and the stereo speakers.
    True that it "seems" like you don't need an upgrade year after year. We are at a point where upgrades should be meaningful and justified : I don't just upgrade because there's a new gadget in town, I upgrade because there is something in particular that I would like to include in my day-to-day life and work that I think should be beneficial. It could be the stereo speakers, it could be that you want the best camera or the design, or the expandable storage, headphone jack and so on. I feel like this phone is complete. It has everything à phone can have cause before the only thing missing was stereo speakers and telephoto lens... Now it's just perfect.

    I agree that's kinda why I'm confused If I should sell my note and get the s9+

    I think that it's not worth upgrading to the S9 from the S8, as the latter is still a great and capable phone which is just a little worse than its successor. The evolution in the S series is definitely fine, but it is not a big thing in comparison between the newest and the former flagship phones.

    I think its not only the specs bump, new phones/model of the S Series offers new features.

    Not worth it unless you really want the dual camera on the S9+. I honestly like the placement of the fingerprint scanner on my S8.
