    If so, what were they? What made you go with the Galaxy?

    At the time only the Pixel had me intrigued (I'm done giving LG a chance). But since I'm on T-Mo's JOD!, the Pixel was a harder sell because of their freakin' Verizon exclusivity. That and the fact that I have now become very much addicted to using Samsung Pay, wireless charging, and waterproofing made the S9+ choice a lot easier. Plus it looks soooo pretty! haha But Pixel camera rules.

    HTC U11+ 6GB/128GB Dual-SIM version. Samsung's software features are what swayed me to stay with yet another Galaxy smartphone.

    Considered the Pixel 2 but the massive forehead and chin made it a non-starter.

    And I'm not an XL or Plus fan. I got the regular S9 and love it.

    Pixel 2xl, LG V35 Thinq and iPhone X(briefly). No expendable storage or headphone jack killed the Pixel and iPhone. And I have given up on LG. Two V20's and an G6 died on me in the last few years. So I figured I'd give Samsung another shot. Haven't had one since the S3. Loving the S9+ so far.

    I always use 2 phones. 1 main and 1 backup. My main phone is always Samsung. My backup varies from Xiaomi to OnePlus.

    Not am S9 owner but I came from Samsung and left after they sealed up their phones and didn't have removable battery and went to LG V series. Had a V10 that bootlooped of course. Sold it (warranty replacement) when the V20 came out and I still have that phone. Now have the V30. I stayed with LG because the audio on the LG is exceptional with headphones with the hifi quad dac and the wide angle cameras are keeping me with LG. I go to alot of concerts and the audio recording that uses receiver as mic (concert mode) records clearly in the loudest of environments. No bass clipping.

    Just my take since you seemed to be wanting comparison opinions. My fiancée has a G6 that she traded her iPhone 7 for. She as well loves the wide angle cameras and the removable storage. She was always filling up her phone with video. We both have 256GB cards.

    The only thing the S9 has that I wish my V30 had is 4k60fps video recording. All that being said I'd be happy with an S9, but last time I picked up a Note 8 and tried to record video, not having the wide angle really made me feel limited. But S10 and the next note are likely to have wide angle.

    I almost got a pixel 2xl, but the s9 won out in the end. I liked the camera more, headphones, notification light. I had an original pixel that got stuck in a bootloop, then I went to moto... this is a big change from z2 force but I love this s9. I feel so fancy! Lol!

    I considered the Pixel 2 XL but put a lid on that idea as soon as I read about the myriad of issues with the display, lack of micro SD support / headphone jack, less waterproofing etc etc. Not to mention I've been using wireless charging for the last 5 years I just am not prepared to let go of the most convenient of features (for me).

    My 3 year old HTC One M9 was dying even after replacing the battery. My previous criteria was good speakers and external storage. This time, I wanted a beautiful screen and great camera. The S9 has both, while keeping good speakers and external storage, AND I get to keep the headphone jack. The S9 is the best phone I've ever owned.

    To be honest, it was because of a deal while working for AT&T. Employees at the time of launch were given a half off deal as we completed various Samsung trainings. I had my S8+ and loved it, and thought "What the heck?" So I did the trainings and bought the phone.

    Had an S7 Edge as a back up to my S8 (had an S8+ too, but gave it to my wife). Was in no hurry to get the S9, but when Samsung offered me $300 for the S7, I jumped on it. The S7 wasn't holding a charge too well, so it made it easy. At this time next year, I'll probably get the S10 or X or whatever in trade for my S8.

    I had a Note 8. Upgraded to S9+ because the Note had a scratch on the screen I didn't feel like fixing. I considered the iPhone X but ultimately stuck with Samsung because I like to customize my phone a lot. I didn't think I'd really notice a difference over the Note 8 but I actually do. I can tell a difference in speed and responsiveness. The camera is definitely better and the battery life is also improved. I actually prefer the more rounded corners to the Note 8s squared off ones. It's pretty to look at.

    I had the pixel XL and the s9 has SOO MANY features that I sold my pixel. Note 8 would've been another obvious choice though. I love the dual speakers of the s9 to go that route though.

    Dolby Stereo Speakers, and better camera plus deal. $485 for a new S9+ and I had to pull the trigger.
