Galaxy S9 Series user thread

Recommended Posts

I managed to complete what I assume was a VoLTE call on my unlocked S9+. I was talking on the phone using WiFi Calling and the other person on the other end complained that I started getting choppy. I saw was that my phone was reconnecting to WiFi, meaning somewhere in the middle of my call, my WiFi went out and LTE took over but I didn't notice until my WiFi came back.

It was pulled for all S9 phones for some reason that hasn't been fixed.

Perhaps it has to do with the less than stellar battery life (quite bad in-fact) and black color banding issues etc.

As seen with the S7 and S8, Samsung does not do .1 updates anymore. I guess it's not important enough to them.

This is Samsung here, we haven't had an update since post-release before most people got their phones. Whereas the S7 and S8 have gotten two-three.

It's been months now since the S9 was released, a company the size of Samsung surely can push a stable update.

But why can't they push monthly security updates though? I like to have a very secure device you know just like everybody else :-)

That's totally false. It's definitely possible because the phone supports the proper bands for u.s. Cellular roaming so it might be just a provisioning thing but the hardware is there to support it

The coverage map shows LTE roaming is available for both the S9 and S9+.

Exactly what I told Sprint, still working with some other contacts there to find out some info.

      Its almost time for the next iteration of Samsung's Galaxy Phones! I'm planning on pre-ordering either the S20+ or Ultra. Current Rumors have it going on Pre-order February 11.  Let the discussion commence...

      Samsung Network Vision equipment are highly distinct and fairly easy to spot compared to the equipment that other vendors are deploying. Sprint is Samsung's first extremely massive American contract (baring Clearwire) so there  should be no issues in confusing these equipment for another carrier which happens often with Ericsson NV equipment.

      Below are images of Samsung equipment which includes antennas, remote radio units, base stations, and their mounting configurations.

      Sprint 4G Rollout Updates
      Tuesday, January 31, 2012 - 7:46 PM MST
       
      Since last fall, there had been talk of a Samsung Galaxy Nexus launching on American carriers other than Big Red. Sprint has finally announced several weeks ago that it is the another vendor slated for release in the U.S. Suffice to say, many of us out there, especially those adverse to heading to Verizon and paying its premium prices, are excited about the impending release.
      The good news is that Google could be working on an updated version of the Galaxy Nexus. It has unofficially been dubbed the Galaxy Nexus Plus. There is much anticipation that it will be released before Sprint turns on LTE this summer. It’s not the first time an OEM has refreshed a device and re-released it to the market place, which works to our advantage. It’s rumored that the new Galaxy Nexus will have either a 1.5 or 1.8 GHz Texas Instrument OMAP4670 dual core processor. This would be a significant upgrade from the 1.2 GHz dual core processor found in the current Verizon version.
      We don’t know anything about official specs, but it’s also rumored to have an 8 MP camera. This is a noteworthy upgrade to the 5 MP shooter on the Verizon model (which has been lauded by many techies). We already know that the Sprint model will come installed with Google Wallet, per previous announcements. Some rumors also point to a beefier battery as well. The phone should have all the other features that’s on the current Galaxy Nexus, so now all we have to do is wait.
