    5G won't roll out significantly for a long time. The odds are very strong that you'll upgrade your phone well before you have 5G service.

    Plus, I can see it now. "Oh, sure, we had the initial 5G when you bought your S10. But now you need the S10a to get access to 5G+, which is what we wanted to roll out anyway but didn't. That'll be another $1000 please."
    I confess that thought occurred to me, too. Buying the first gen is always dangerous and may raise some compatibility issues. It is all too likely a scenario. Plus, I travel abroad a lot. It has to work there, too. That may raise additional issues. It may take a couple of years for that to sort itself out.

    OTOH, I can't see dropping some sum like we're talking about for a 10+ or Note 10, whatever, and then doing it again the following year. I feel no burning urgency to upgrade for any other reason. It feels like we're going through some seismic change. They are always a combo of fun and scary. I'd like to see what the market looks like at the end of 2019. You may be right that is not nearly long enough.

    If the S10 is as great as they say, then yep, I will get an S10+ to either activate or keep as backup to my GS9 phones. lol. I have more phones than fingers or sense. lol. I just love all these hi tech gadgets that come out every year. I am retired and phones are just one of my many passions.

    Giving serious consideration to moving away from Samsung this year. I'm considering the S10+ but am also looking at the One plus 7. Will wait a few months to see what is out or about to come out and will decide tgen.

    Especially if the leaks of the OnePlus 7 are real. Decisions decisions.

    I think of moving to Huawei P30 Pro or Huawei Mate 30 Pro got lastest and better hardware.
    Face unlock and finger print scanner is more accurate and more reliable.

    I'll be getting an S10+, because I like shiny new things, and I have a plan with my carrier where you can upgrade after having paid off 50% (12 payments) of the price of your phone, with no down payment.

    You do have to turn in your current phone, though.
    Same here!

    Depends on the charger. The charger from my previous phone (LG V20) is Quick Charge 3.0, and my S9+ fast charges when connected to it.

    On the other hand, the Aukey QC 3.0 car charger I had wouldn't fast charge my S9+ at all.

    I'll go with 10 lite. Missing flat screen since they moved to curve. On other hand, less stressed on finding right screen protector hahaha

    ,nope. I always keep my phones a couple years. when I got my priv it was only because BlackBerry wasn't supporting bb10 anymore. I loved my z30. my priv had its issues and I had to upgrade because they were causing me problems. I really miss my pkb though. my dad is now using it as his first smartphone. the s9 has been a very good phone. I'm coming up on a year with it and have no complaints. not really planning on replacing it any time soon
