S9 is definitely a nice upgrade, the S8 feels slow in comparison.
Very slow indeed

He's saying the S8 is slow in comparison and in my experience I agree it's quite a bit slower you can feel it.

It is.  It will pickup B41 great just like the S9.  Varies on markets, S9's speedtest on B41 is slightly better than S8.  In my market that is the case.  Some in NY seeing 200+Mbps.  I only see 100Mbps average which my S8 been able to do.

One week in with the S9+ and this thing blows the S8+ away in speed and the camera. My gawd, the camera has really improved. Sharpness of photos is far, far, far better. Hyperlapse is a clever camera mode I find myself using it with the kids pretty frequently. Zoom actually ends up with sharp photos too.

Oh yes I definitely agree the S9 plus camera is a dramatic Improvement.

Reviews says it's not worth the upgrade, I call bs it's a huge difference in performance in every aspect.

Well, reviewers usually don't live with these devices as their daily drivers. So they likely don't run into the quirks that we might run into over the course of a year with the old device. You are welcome to call BS, but I think you'd be pretty surprised as I was. Even with a freshly built S8+ like I had in the weeks prior to my switch, it was far slower than this S9+....and it should be, I sure hope. If anything I'd get it for the finger print scanner location. :)

Commenting in here since its more active...

 

I recently got the S8 Active and have been unable to get a single HD Voice call.

 

I disabled wifi calling in the phone and at the account level, and it hasnt fixed it.

I am in the same location as with the old phone, and I am calling other Sprint customers (including on my plan).

Any advice?

    • Son not gonna give up that treasure trove of 2.5 spectrum for cheap, $12 per share minimum.  Gonna love my May 2018 calls!  Cha-ching! 
    • PRLs do not affect LTE connectivity — they are only for CDMA. What you are observing must be a coincidence. As Sprint and Open Mobile are still integrating their networks, Band 13 will probably come and go quite a few more times before you’ll be able to properly connect to it.  It’s hard to say. Although I may be wrong, I think that if the merger does goes through (which it may or may not), it will go through everywhere. 
    • Update: Did a PRL update (55069) and sightings of B13 using Signal Check Pro are less frequent know in my area. Before this latest PRL, I was able to see between 2-3 B13 signals everyday for the entire time that I had the app open but not anymore. There is a B13 in my area at -98 dBm that's constantly disappearing from Signal Check Pro. As for roaming charges when I was using Open Mobile, there are none and the roaming data allotment stills at zero. Two question for thought... If Sprint and T-Mobile merge, what could be the implications for PRWireless in Puerto Rico (Joint company between Sprint and Open Mobile)? Would the DOJ step in to prevent a 3 carrier merge in PR? Or would it go thru making a super telecom company in PR? Or maybe the DOJ allows the merge in the USA but not in PR... Lastly, could the rollout of Sprint VoLTE be affected in PR do to Open Mobile's equipment?
