I’m sure it will be beautiful phone with a great camera that’s hamstrung by touch wiz, bixby intrusiveness and gets android os updates a year after the pixel phones do. Fingerprint scanner on s8+ and note 8 was terrible for anyone that doesn’t have hands like truckasaurus.
Actually, the Galaxy S9 is rumored to have a 3200 mah battery. The S9+ battery hasnt been leaked, but considering that it's also a little thicker than the S8+, it should have 3600 - 3700 mah battery (but thats just my speculations).
sir edges make it different, and look like 3d ,such as images are popping out , so it's great , and I like idea of Samsung that they have implemented it
but other's not.
Samsung bought revolution in display category
I’ve never been a fan of S series although they are great phones. I will stick to my iPhone X and Note 8. I think in the world of Android, Galaxy Note is the only phone that feels quality, precision, beauty, functionality and have the best Android layout overall. Other Android phone are all 1 whole level below the Note series. iPhone also is killing it with the X. I am amazed by this phone. These 2 undoubtedly are the best on the planet. Love them.
Hard to improve on a display in which you eyes can't see enough detail to a difference. You're eyes just won't notice improvement on a 5.7" amoled screen with 518ppi and that was their Note 4 display that came out in 2014.
They're just running out of ideas. That's the reason for removing the hj, waterproofing, edge displays, 18:9 aspect ratio, etc.... None of those things are really needed nor do they even improve the user experience, although waterproofing can be useful in certain instances.
Galaxy S9/S9+ will be awesome phones despite being similar to the current S8 line with the design. Glad Samsung has finally listened and will move the fingerprint sensor in the middle. Great the S9+ will have dual cameras, though if only they add it to the smaller S9 as well, that way only difference between both devices are screen size & battery. If I'm able to get the S9+, I can give my Dad my S8+ since he's been using an LG G4 since it's launch. I do hope both S9's have stereo speakers (utilizing the earpiece), but we'll wait and see, unfortunately Bixby is still being added. :( What features do you hope to be on the new Smartphones besides embedded fingerprint sensor. Do hope the iris scanner gets better by being faster & usable in sunlight. Thanks Matt! Hope you get this. :)
Looking forward to the next LG V series phone. In general looking forward to see how the changes LG has made in its infrastructure will effect their mobile division. Also will be watching Google to see what they bring and how iPhone goes with the LG?? Screens. Could be a interesting year (or will end up being safe n boring one). I think Samsung is playing it safe with galaxy series.
Can someone please tell Samsung to bump up the amountof RAM on the regular S9 as well? 4 GB of RAM just isn't enough when the system & apps take up 2 GB, nearly 1 GB (678 MB) is Reserved on my S7. It leaves it with only 1 GB or less of RAM free most of the time. And it's been the same number for the past 2 years. It should go up now even for the regular S9. They shouldn't take this stupid Apple approach just to differentiate the S9 from the S9+. Their phones need a minimum of 6-8 GB RAM like the Note 8. And please, bring the IR blaster back so we're able to control our TVs, cable boxes, & Set-top boxes. Idk why they got rid of it 2 years ago on with the S7 onwards when the phones before that had it
Well, we’re on 2018 and manufactures got spot making us as fools, 4gb of ram that’s not enough. If low Budget company can put 6gb or even 8gb of ram. Why big companys put 4gb ? So to everyone that’s gonna buy new mobile, android at least 6gb or better with 8gb and iOS well since optimization on iOS 11 gone bad you must wait a 4gb or 6gb iPhone to have good ram management
Samsung needs to utilize their earpiece speaker for stereo sound media consumption, way, way past due. Also, 6Gb of RAM are table stakes to help cope with their endless duplicate apps and heavy skin. I’m looking at the S9+, as it looks as though it will solve those problems for the most part. A lot of my decision actually rides on stereo speaker output.
Very nice video, as always, thanks.
Bloat wear as apple fans call it . Is what I like so much from a samsung phone and the more the better .. I love you can scrole down a page with your eyes not your fingers. I love taking screen shot without touching your phone.. The bloat what apple fans call it does what iphones can do. If you want the most advance phone in the world by 3or 4 years over apple even apple x phones lacking and thousand pounds for old teck iPhone a joke and thats why its stoped selling. You be better buy samsung sg6 with VR than apple x phone. Iphone need some Hi teck or as samsungs critic call it bloat wear. The things iphone cant do. Now samsung making screens for apple for years the critics said the where rubbish to colourfull. You can ajust the colour dept on samsung phone unlike iPhone that come bog standard boring. Since iohone copied samsung reintroducing large screen . The now got more room to try and become more revolutionary instead of evolutionary behind sansung.. The more teck revolutionary samsung become the more people by samsung and the curved edges samsung sg6 killed the iphone 6 plus dead. The had to stop the production of the iphone 6 plus. The sansung edge just stop the iphone 6 plus dead. In fact iphones have not sold in quantity since. So bring on the hi teck. ( bloat wear to iphone fans) samsung we are loving it and more people buying samsung than ever.
I'm so conflicted! Samsung is knocking it out of the park with their displays, but the insane amount of bloatware is a deal-breaker. It kills me how many gigs are eaten up by Samsung's garbage apps on my S6 Edge. When I can finally afford to upgrade, Google or OnePlus tops my list.
Erika Martin Taylor there's no insane amount of bloat and what little there is can be uninstalled or disabled. On my AT&T S8 there was only AT&T shitty apps that I uninstalled. Facebook is the only 3rd party bloat that was on it.
I agree. Last year I went for the s8 because hardware... But after just a couple of days, I was experiencing lag. I've always been a Nexus user it anything else close to pure Android. I don't think I'll jump on to anything with TouchWiz. I have a one plus 5t. Very happy with the performance and hardware.
I see no point of a Galaxy S9+ when the Note devices are similar in size and also include the stylus. It makes the Note line less appealing for many since the S9+ will be far cheaper when the next Note comes out.
Personally, if they included truly wireless earphones in the box, I would actually prefer that they ditch the headphone jack. I feel like if Samsung ditched the headphone jack, this is how they'd do it.
Mr. Moniz, I am thinking of getting a MSI GE72MVR 17 inch laptop at Best Buy with a I7-7700 nvidea 1070 12 gb 1 tb hdd 126 ssd 120 hz screen for $1,599 is it worth it? What is your opinion? Or would a MSI GE73VR be better? I love watching your videos. Thanks
So when Apple releases a phone with the same design as the last, all the samsung fans come and bash them and say how terrible it is, yet when Samsung do it, it’s fine. I see no comments even talking about it
Because they changed the design..? The S9 will have a noticably smaller bottom bezel, and the whole phone will be a little smaller overall. Its not a change as big as lets say the change from the iPhone 8 to the X, but it definitely isnt *the same* as the previous model (unlike the iPhone 6s, 7 and 8).
Az Am Not a completely different front, a few things were moved. If we are going into tiny details, then the 6 was a big redesign from the 5s, the 6s was an s update so didn’t change, the 7 had waterproofing and the 8 has a glass back
Most upcoming high-end phones will probably not sell well. The reason is the massive hike in prices and the little features they bring. They gonna have to stop releasing new phones *every year.* Very few people will buy a new high-end phones. A slight camera or screen enhancement won't cut it for $1k to most people. Literally all high-end phones from the past 3 years are still incredible phones ( Nexus 6p, iPhone 6, Galaxy 6s...etc.)
Waves- most people don't buy phones every year and most people don't cara about specs. Only, people like us, that are up to date with technology, are so critical and change phones rather frequently because we want the latest and greatest. About price, it might be a big deal in many countries, but not in the US, since most people pay them by installments and the US is one of the biggest markets.
I don't think companies should move to no headphone jack until
1. There is a nice selection of usb type c headphones
2. They create a new jack same size with more power.
3.They add 2 usb type c ports. One port for charging and one for headphones.
I AM NOT INTERESTED IN SACRIFICING CONVENIENCE FOR WIRELESS
People who want wireless act like they have to use the jack because its there. No you can still use bluetooth headphones. I shouldnt be forced to do what you want. If we lose the jac you still get your bluetooth but i lose my wired connection. Not fair
Mohamed Vahedi They've been making phones future proof for a while. I bought a newer Note, but I keep my Note 4 as a backup and sometimes I wonder why I don't just switch back. They've improved performance and features, but nothing that justifies a $800-$1000 price tag.
Eddie Perkins Yeah I get what you say, but fair or not fair, they will all follow what Apple does and will eventually remove the headphone jack so you will either have to stick with your old phone forever or just accept the change and move forward. GL
Im not getting the s9. The durability is shit. Screen was destroyed from 1 drop at the hip. Fell right out my pocket. Never dropped it before. Meanwhile my lg v30 has survived a beating. Fell off the treadmill onto the belt and launched onto the concrete garage floor. 0 damage
In terms of design, I believe it will be similar s8. It will be different and most likely fingerprint reader under the glass on their 10th anniversary ala Samsung Galaxy S10 or X. Still I will be getting the S9.
Had an S8+ and got bored of the Samsung UI pretty quickly, even Nova Launcher didn't convince me to keep it. Can't deny that Samsung hardware is beautiful but the software just doesn't do it for me. I'm more than happy with my Pixel 2 XL and can't wait for the Pixel 3.
Happy new year from the UK Matt, looking forward to more great content in 2018 :)
These phones will only be suitable for 2-handed use; too big. Also like you said, the edges are a useless gimmick and only decrease usability and are nothing but an annoyance.
Also, we definitely need the jack; wireless alternatives are either insanely expensive, have bad battery, or bad sound quality; usb-c alternatives effectively don't exist.
I have the edge and i personally think its really nice i use it a lot and it looks cool
Also they are not only suitable for 2 handed use the s9+ wil be but the s9 you can use it with one hand easily unles you have really small hands.
Phone Fanatic yea man Brandon is a good friend of mine. I’m based in London so we got to catch up briefly when he was around. Yea dude is a made talented cinematographer for sure and not many people can do what he does, definitely not me🤣 and his iPhone X review was too dope, great storyteller when review tech👌🏿

Lol Is that Brandon Havard I see in the vlog? If it is, he’s one of my fave TechTubers cuz he gets YouTube and is very talented. He understands that YouTube is a video medium and has a lot of creative visual content and his editing is excellent—he doesn’t just sit in front of the video camera and talk like lots of TechTubers do. Plus he’s embraced the widescreen mode to fit ‘17 smartphone form factors and beyond. I loved the intro to his iPhone X review, as did MKBHD.
Phone Fanatic have to agree again dude and I am a person in my latter years I tend to judge an OS more based in the out of box experience/features than having to tinker as well. Great talking man. Head over to my channel as well I do a lot of camera test and comparisons there as well👌🏿

I haven't messed around with Samsung phones since the Note 4 which is one of my all time fave phones cuz removable battery, plus unlocked bootloader on T-Mobile version. Android and iOS are both good, but both very different philosophies in fact opposite philosophies...Android = open natured and iOS = closed natured. It sounds like you know what you are talking about. I just don't have anymore time to tinker and I think iPhones have less headache. But you can definitely tinker and soup up your Android phone to your heart's content (been there done that). I also prefer iOS's aesthetic/design language over Google’s Material Design language as well as the User Experience on the X is next level shit, even though it's still an iPhone which can be boring since you can't customize or get under the hood like you can with Android.
S8 is my favorite designed smartphone ever just edging out the iPhone 4. It's so sleek and futuristic. Just gorgeous to look at and also the feel in my dirty palms, lol.
I agree, I get app reloads all the time on my X, but I never reboot or close my apps since they're sandboxed. The newest beta releases after 11.2 are ultra stable for me. Anyway, enjoy whatever phone you use since they're all kinda great these days.
Phone Fanatic so in reply to your edited comment about the spilt screen mode by Samsung from 2012 on the Note 2 and beyond its really down to preference and you have mad valid points to why it didn’t work for you. On the flip side it’s what made me love skinned Android compare to stock and still why i prefer it over google stock android. I think over the year samsung have perfected it and with the new infinity display on the S8+ and Note 8 it works so much better with the screen sizes
Robert Squyres how can u buy a phone like that I just don't get ppl say the software is amazing but the phone can't even hold apps cause it only had 4gb of ram the screen is bad it has no headphone jack and it doesn't even come with headphones in the box. Ik ppl say the pixel camera is real good but still how does it not have a dual camera and they asking for $900
