Samsung Galaxy S9 : Reviews and video

Recently people texted me and asked me if I do reviews and to be honest I would love to do a review but without the cash or the proper connections to conduct gadget reviews I have to promote other reviews on this blog.

My Opinion

By the looks of things I would buy the phone…. If I had the cash (😭 but Im a broke boy) so I strongly advise you to buy the phone if you have the cash. Besides the reviews on Samsung.com do not lie.

Great upgrade from Galaxy s7
onApril 9, 2018
#Pros
Better more stable camera, more screen space without losing size of Galaxy s7, using spigen case works beautifully, also loving the easy wireless charging and USB C cable no longer at night in the dark I have to struggle to connect my phone paid about 752 for the phone and was really easy to connect to Sprint.
#Cons
Wish they added a better sms option for the phone.
Camera voice activation “smile” doesn’t work
Bixby still needs a bit more work but it is getting there
Glass Back should have been matte plastic or metal, glass makes me feel a small drop will break the phone
Rear scratches fast especially between the camera and finger print sensor
Dolby atmos when left on makes video you recorded sound awful by overdoing your microphone audio to force background noise to be louder
#Suggestions to Samsung if they really do read and respond
Dark theme for the phone made officially by Samsung would be nice
More Camera Options like Dual Camera front and rear used to be on s7 s5 and s4 bring that back I actually use that for videos
Bixby better control of Samsung music not Google play music
Option to remove 5min limit of 4k 60fps
Samsung pass needs more improvement

Great phone
onApril 8, 2018
Pros: Bright displayInexpensiveLightweightBuilt-in speakers
Love this phone, it is faster then my S7 and the battery lasts so much longer then the S7 I had. The only thing I don’t like is they did not put FM radio in it like I though they were. When I work out at the gym it would be great to hear the TV over FM on my phone. But other then that, it works great.
