Galaxy S9 Series user thread

Recommended Posts

I have an unlocked s9 that was not part of the beta. Just got the Dec 1 security patch. I'm actually kind of surprised, as I expected they would just push Android p with January patch.

It's not unheard of to get multiple updates in a week, but you're unlocked so that may be different. I'm expecting the final pie update to roll out this week, Samsung said January for the update so it's very likely this week if not next week for sure. I'm on the beta so I'm hoping it's today but I doubt it.

Add a month or two and you will less likely be disappointed. Everything seems to lag a month or two.

I heard the pie update will be out in January, but as Sturgeon said it may take another month for carriers to push out the update.

Does that mean unlocked will get it first? Or does Sprint decide when to push the pie update?

I believe that the unlocked version will receive the update last. I think Samsung waits for all the carriers to approve before pushing to the unlocked phone.

Just a week left of January, but who knows what will happen. Does anyone expect that Samsung will stick to the time line?

Technically they already made their timeline. They never said GS9's in every region would get it this month.

Are you connected to a magic box or airave now? Neither of those support VoLTE at the moment, and it will be disabled if/when you're connected to one.

As per sammobile pie is rolling out to the S9 and S9+ on Xfinity mobile, expect a Sprint version very soon.

Reports on sammobile that vz is getting the pie update now for s9. You would think unlocked would be sooner, not dead last to receive any updates. It is an odd business model where buying directly from the manufacturer is the way to get the slowest support.

Same for the people on the beta who were supposed to get it before non beta people.

Will the new menu get rid of the Calling plus option?

Are you guys getting stable release ota? I assume this is for a branded sprint s9, not the unlocked one.

Oh heavens to Betsy, the shutter sound toggle is STILL in the camera app!! Are non-beta users still seeing the camera shutter sound toggle in Camera Settings?? 

Yeah, no VoLTE yet. Night mode actually sticks now! Camera seems faster, but they kept the swipe format for video recording, which nearly every user in the Beta complained about. Thanks a lot Samsung. (previously it was just a button inside the regular camera mode, which many felt was more convenient). Clock is still on the left instead of the right (no toggle to change that I can find), but that's to prep for the camera punchout on the S10. 

I'll have to test out call quality on WiFi calling, LTE calling, and standard. Was not the best on the Betas for me. 

I have the S9+ and I was on the Beta. My update was 243 MB in size instead of 2 giggles.

      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.

      hello all i feel i should start a note 9 rumor thread  please post rumors and what not here.

    • I was with sprint for 12 plus years and switched to t mo about a year ago cause going on my girlfriend's plan with now 4 lines was cheaper than what I had with sprint.   I couldn't agree more with you about the areas I frequent with sprint was and is better than t mobile when I switched.   But I see alot of sprint sites that will be prefect for t mo taking over.  I sure hope they do.     You are also correct on band 71 not fixing the gaps.  
    • Yep, I am still on Sprint, but I do have a T-Mobile phone to play with.  I find t-Mobile service was much worse than Sprint service in the places I traveled in the last month or two.   The T-Mobile network just does not have enough sites and therefor band 2, 4, & 66 just can not cover much of their territory.  Since those bands quite often fail to provide the service, the band 12 and band 71 have to do the lifting.  Those two bands are ave available to latch onto, but they are always totally  congested. T-Mobile desperately needed the Spectrum owned by Sprint and also the additional cell sites that Sprint had. Even with that, they STILL need to add more NEW sites.   T-Mobile was a marketing powerhouse. People believed what T-Mobile put out.  However, it was a bunch of hype and the service was not nearly as good as claimed. They got away with this for a long time, but without more spectrum they were slowing going to have big issues.  They do have  a chance to fix this if they ever get the Sprint and T-Mobile networks combined correctly. That remains to be seen. Before anybody jumps all over me for this post, I do agree that T-Mobile was fine in some areas.  It sure was not fine in a bunch of other areas.  Band 71 did not fix it either. It helped, but did not really fix the issues in many places.
    • Hey I just tried that code and what do you think i should try and set my s20 plus on t mobile too? I'm in Colorado.
    • T mo brags about band71 with its great for penetrating building's and yet it's worse than than 3g. Now I'm not often on band 71 or band 12 but I except it to work when I am.    
    • As far as I'm concerned, this is a good thing. But then I worked for Sprint for 27 years, and I'm sad to see the name go away.
