Front or back for S9?

Below the rear camera, ideally I want it on the front but I guess that's a thing of the past and I can accept that so long as I can hit the scanner without smudging the damn camera and hit it accurately lol.

I want the fingerprint scanner in the front, under the screen.  :-)

There are rumors that will be the case for the note 9; though I've also heard they're having reliability issues with that technology.

I m debating on wether or not I should get the note 9
For me it depends. If band 25-26 CA is active and working out of the box there is no way I'm waiting on the note 9 but if not then I could wait.

For me it has to do with a lot of things battery life Network hardware and radio bands and the cameras. But I definitely agree though that carrier aggregation should be in place.

If the device supports B25/26 aggregation at launch, does this mean Sprint's network also will?

It is highly unlikely that this feature would be built into a phone if it was not going to be activated "SOON".

Depends. Most Samsung markets (ie all except Chicago) still don't have B25 2xCA. My guess is it will be at least a year before 25/26 CA and 41/25 CA is enabled.

Huge pipe down (b41) better spectrum fpr uplink (b25). 
 
I assume...
 
 
B25 will be the primary and will use downlink and uplink while up to two carriers of b41 will be the SCC and will be used for more downlink. B25 being used for uplink really only shows in markets where 10-15mhz of contingious spectrum is being used.

Like Orlando. Or Puerto Rico when B25 becomes 20x20. I think there B25+B13+41+41+41 would kick ass. In Orlando 25+41+41+41+41

I'm in a Samsung market and 25+25 is all over now.

Since no one posted it yet, here is Sprint's Galaxy S9/S9+ press release.

 http://newsroom.sprint.com/sprint-is-best-place-to-get-samsung-galaxy-s9-and-galaxy-s9-with-best-price-for-unlimited.htm

I've pretty much already decided I am just going to finance the device through Samsung so my only question is, does anyone know if the unlocked model will have Sprint's bands available or will I have to purchase a Sprint specific model to use it on Sprint?

    • Mike, are you still recommending that this beta only be used on on dual psim/esim devices or should it now be basically safe for all devices (with usual beta risks)?
    • A new SignalCheck Pro beta is rolling out right now with LOTS of bug fixes.. and some new features. The full changelog is in the app or on the website. In addition to many bugfixes, there are some notable new options: Colorize location display to indicate low accuracy (yellow when Trail Logger is enabled) or outdated timestamp (red). This is enabled by default. Enable/disable display of location coordinates with location accuracy and the location timestamp.. so now each value can be individually enabled/disabled. Configure the maximum age of location data before Location Service is restarted; the default remains at 10 minutes but can now be configured as desired. Limit max number of neighbor cells to display (including 0, if you only want to see the summary line). Some users are seeing LTE or NR data persist after a connection is lost. I made some minor changes, but I wanted to get this release rolled out before continuing to dig deeper into that issue since I made so many other changes that may or may not impact this bug. One thing that users can try is to disable the option under Preferences > Display Settings > Show Hidden Data -- that may resolve the issue. Looking forward to feedback! Thanks..
    • Yup. It keeps GPS info up to date while logging. 
    • Looks like GPS Status and Toolbox
    • https://www.fiercewireless.com/wireless/t-mobile-att-and-verizon-gear-super-bowl T-Mobile DAS upgrades and AT&T under the seats antennas are interesting. Hopefully someone gets pictures and details of the under the seats antennas.
