    Samsung Galaxy S8 & Dual Sim/Duos

    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.

    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.

    Low light photos are better than the S8+ for sure. Still way over processed, but that's how Samsung rolls. I get less blur with the kids running around too. Have yet to try the super slow mo...it requires a TON of light to work well.

    Heeeey guys, got my S9+ today. subbing on this thread. Pretty nice phone. Snaps some nice pics. Otherwise very much like the S8+ as far as my 8 hours could tell. Picking up my wife's S9 regular tomorrow.

    Downloading now! Thanks. I had to factory reset and rebuild from scratch last night. My phone was shutting off every minute or so. Soft reboot wasn't working, had to plug it in to reboot it. Ridiculous but seems to be better after rebuild.

    I'm getting a lot of double notification sounds. Like an email comes in and I'll get 2 dings, or a tweet notification and I'll get 2 chirps for that. But FB messages are just doing one notification noise. So perhaps app incompatibility with 8.0 versus phone issue? Otherwise, I think this update is "fine". I don't see much that is improved here, but nothing super broken like the betas.

    Mine wasn't last night, but it showed up today oddly enough. Maybe coincidence in tower issues? I didn't change anything on my phone.

    Also, are you opening a new line? The $18 a month price is only for new lines as best I can tell. $33 or $38/month (S9+) is what I see. I too see the upgrade now, but when you start clicking through I see that I have to pay off the rest of my payments until 18 months (it doesn't stop at 12 for this). However, the banner during the upgrade process clearly states that with Galaxy Forever you can upgrade to the newest Galaxy after 12 payments.

    I was told 12 payments for Galaxy Forever? Explicitly chatted with 2 different CSR. So none of us would qualify yet since this one is early. Sent from my SM-G955U using Tapatalk

    SITE UPGRADE WARNING

    I've had nothing but blocks this past weekend. So frustrating as I would like to participate in threads, but can NOT get through. The Sprint network was also throwing me errors, which is the first time this has happened. I also want to report that I was trying to post on the Madison/Milwaukee Premier sheet thread (when it would load and not get Cloud Flare blocked), for which I have access, but it kept denying me. I'd type it all up, attach my photos, click send and it would give me the toast message that I am not allowed to post, "contact your admin if you continue to have issues". Incredibly frustrating that I have to wait until I get to work to even post anything on this site. OR if I get lucky and get through at home, it'll still give me that message about failed posts. Because my home WiFi is burned too by the Cloud Flare. I know the issues lie outside our hands and we're all frustrated with it.
