Galaxy S9 Series user thread

Official won't be for a few months I expect as beta just launched a week ago. Also when you are accepted nothing happens. You need to go to manually check for updates and you will get the beta software. 

I was able to use maps while on a call driving home so for sure volte is working! 

Also, battery life seems to be very significantly improved. Not sure if this is just this early beta or not, but it's improved at least 50 percent. Other users are reporting same in beta app. 

The roadmaps I've seen online show an official release in January. This beta seems pretty polished, I expect they found most of the bugs while building the S10 version. Samung moved to an official version on the S10 pretty fast, so maybe they will do the same for us.

Was just able to download and install the Dec update for my S9.  AGAIN, no VOLTE, NO additional aggregation expansion.

AGAIN, after just a quick look, I see nothing that improved or changed.  Same old story for months.

If we can believe the rumors, the next update should make big improvements.

The One UI beta has all those features. So expect it once that update is finally pushed in its final form. Also, no way in hell it's gonna be a 179mb update.

This is the Beta 2 update for Android 10. They seem be be coming out about once a week.  It has VoLTE and additional aggregation, although they are both turned off by default. Just a few weeks away from final!

New Beta update this evening, this would be beta 3. Short list of fixes, note that there is a now a VoLTE icon when VoLTE is enabled. Should be pretty close to an offical release.

Has anyone else experienced service issues since the last update on the s9?  My data has gone way down and the tower is only 50 feet from my location.

Has anybody that's not on the beta received the January security update? My Sprint S9+ is on the December 1st update and my AT&T S9+ is on the November 1st update. Both say they are up to date. I wonder if they're waiting on the official Android 10 release now instead of testing and approving more Pie updates.

An unofficial post on the OneUI2 beta community claims that the beta has gone final and has been released to the carriers for testing. I don't know how accurate this is but it's been a while (Jan 6) since we got a beta update. Since the original roadmap showed a January release, it's quite possible that the next update will include Android 10/OneUI2.

I still can't believe the S8 got volte 15 months ago. I couldn't take calling plus anymore so I went S10 5G and never looked back. If you need to see how bad calling plus is look no further than rootmetrics calling scores that Sprint has been getting since they started using S9's.

Great speeds but not enough proof. I have pulled 170 on 2XCA

Are you on the Android 10 Beta? 
Android 10 did not enable 4xCA even on the S10 series. If you want 4xCA the only way it's happening is if b25+b41 CA

I was wondering because it actually shows the CA info in SCP. I haven't seen that in either of my S9+ yet. I was hoping that would come with Android 10.

SCP shows incorrect info sometimes. I will be on b25 or b26 and it will still say b41x3CA. So I check my engineering screen to see if maybe interband is being used and its not.

I suspect that something wasn't being reported correctly. We only have 3 channels of B41 on air here (minus small cells and magic boxes). Plus, Sprint only allows 2xCA on B41 at the moment, at least in the areas that I travel.

      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.
