    I plan on buying the Note 9 in sept when it comes out since I got the Note 8 currently. If it does indeed doesn't have in screen finger print scanner and not much different than Note 8, should I buy the S9 Plus instead? I don't use the spen much but it is a game changer when you need it for something. Also, if there is a sale on it would it be a better choice if the price is good and the Note is like close to $1000?

    If you don't use the spen too much then you must go for the S9 plus. I am a samsung user for a long time. Some time samsung phone give you some lags. I decide to go for htc. I will wait for the u12 plus.
    But some people said the s9 plus is smooth and fast.

    If u not in a hurry wait for Note 9 see what it offers ...otherwise buy the S9+ at a cheaper price
    I shifted from Note 8 to S9+ 128gb and can't be happier...from amazing battery life to size and amazing stereo speakers...and very very good camera

    That pretty much says that you'll miss the S-Pen when you'd need it - so wait.

    When I bought the S8 Plus I said I wouldn't buy the Note 8 cause I don't use spen much.

    Then I ordered the Note 8!

    I still have the tab s3 though too!

    Flossy Carter said when the Note 9 comes out then it's lights out for the s9 basically.

    It has a while huge list of compromises as well. With as much as you fret about Samsung devices, I can't imagine you getting the OP 6 and being happy about it when you see the Note 9. OP looks good on the spec sheet but massively under-delivers for the overall quality of product and services.

    Greggles was saying today that the Note 9 is rumored to launch at the end of July due to disappointing sales of the S9 line and to get it out before iphone.

    That July thing was rumored before the S9 went on sale, so I don't think it's a response to sales figures.

    Well, IF the Note 9 is like close to $1000 and only a minor bump over the Note 8 then I might seriously consider getting the s9 plus. Plus with the deals by then on them I'd save some $$. I'd still have tab s3 for the spen fix and by then I might just buy tab s4.

    Verizon shows the Note 8 as $960 retail even today. Of course you can do better. When the Note 9 comes out, they will offer trade in deals and a free accessory or two as early incentives. Best Buy will probably have gift card bonus - the usual deals will be around. But yeah, it will retail at close to $1000.

    Why are Verizon's phones always priced so high? LOL no way I'd pay that for a Note 8 right now.

    Carrier phones also seem to run a tad higher at Best Buy as well.

    Best Buy currently has the s9 plus verizon for $912 lol.

    I'd wait to see what promos the carriers offer to compete with the next iPhone rollout. BOGOs and such make a big difference, plus waiting a little helps avoid major product snafus and recalls.

    I'm seeing more rumors on youtube that the Note 9 will have EIGHT GB Ram according to Chinese sources.

    IF that is true then I think a lot of people who just bought the s9 Plus coming from the Note 8 will be ticked lol. The Note 9 would totally blow the S9 Plus away then.

    I thought about the s9 plus but if I got it and then the Note 9 came out with 8gb ram I would be livid that I didn't wait.

    I agree with you! I love the S9 plus!.. The sound system is much better than the Note 8 (one of my favorite phones)... IF the S9plus featured an Spen with features, This would be the Perfect phone!..

    Why does this question ALWAYS come up? Just curious because it never fails. For YEARS, people will ask the same question as if they need someone else to make up their minds on what they should use. If you think you're going to miss out, wait. If you need something now, buy now. With the internet these days and forums and YouTube, you can get all of the information you need to make an informed decision, but if you must ask for someone else's opinion to tell you what to buy, then wait until both are available and then decide then.

    Oh wait, by the time that happens, your question will change to "Buy the Note 9 or wait for the Galaxy S10?"

    See how that goes?

    Greggles talking about the 8gb ram and 512gb storage rumors today as well. He thinks it might only be for China and South Korea though.

    I hope it is for the north america and europe models.

    The only downside is if its 8gb of range and 512gb storage is the price tag. This means it will probably be over 1k and geared as a super high end phone.

    It would be hard to justify the price for me to buy then but with 8gb ram I'd be very tempted to because I'd feel the s9 Plus is inferior to the Note 9 then.

    When has the US ever gotten Galaxy model variants with more ram? I doubt it comes here.
