Why is it that apple can have the same boring design and still be amazing but android phones have to refresh the design every year or it's boring? Apple can do no wrong. I would hold off on the note 9 if I were you guys. We still have new pixels and iphones to see first also black Friday is quickly approaching and the S10 is only 6-7 months away too. Bad time to buy a phone if you ask me. At least if you want the greatest.

Hold off on the next big thing will be a never ending waiting game and I bet you'll be saying the same thing when the S10 comes out and say wait few more months till the Note10 or whatever they call it comes out.

Bad time? Its a great time if you need a new phone.

Um 5G for one. 2. A actual design change and God knows what else. The note 9 is a S9+ with a bluetooth S Pen, Slightly bigger screen, 4000mah battery and 2x the storage and a gimmick AI camera. Everything else is the same. Idk I guess I'm spoiled by the S9+

I’ve already seen an unboxing video of the new pixel three XL... I have an iPhone X. I just want to see what the other phone manufacturers come out with. But for those that have a pre-order for the note good on them :-) I see the whole pissing contest With phone specifications this is my opinion to each his own.

Samsung needs to have a three camera system in the back.

Is it likely safe to get the Unlocked/Unbranded model or might you lose some Sprint Features?  Is it the better choice?

As I recall, the unbranded S8 and S9 originally could not get LTE Calling until a bypass was developed.

For S8 and Note 8, it ended up being better to get the branded model, because brand switching was implemented based on Sim and you can switch from and brand, say from Sprint to AT&T with 100% complete carrier specific features just by changing sim.

However for S9, brand switching was never implemented (so far?) for the branded versions.  Does anyone know what the rationale is for the brand-switching difference between S8/Note 8 and S9?

For S9, and presumably Note 9, is it better to get the Unbranded version to ensure portability?   Or will there likely be Sprint features missing in the unbranded version of the Note9?

Thanks for any ideas on this.

I would love to be able to afford an unlocked phone but running over $1000 that’s way too expensive

I'm able to get it down to ~819 by taking advantage of the right promotions.  Sell the headphones for another $100 and it's at 719.  Sell my current device and it gets even lower.  Having said this, I'll probably wait for the S10.

I want to start seeing three cameras on the back of the new galaxy phones coming out in the future when that happens I’ll gladly get one and when they start offering a legitimate wide-angle lens like the iPhone and LG offers then I will gladly come back.

I was really hoping for some improved cameras but not much else. Im so on the fence its not funny. My 8+ functions relatively well, getting a little slow sometimes, but overall I have no complaints. Im definitely leaning towards waiting though in bcb hopes of more camera improvements

Well it doesn’t have a wide angle lense.... but on the plus side it has a large amount of storage space for the base model. It also has a very big screen which is amazing. And the much larger battery. So let’s see how this phone pans out.

The S9/Note 9 are both top tier phones that match or exceed oltheir competition. However I think we can all tell that Samsung held back this year in order to pull out all the stops for their next round of devices.

      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.

      S9 S9+ reported into the FCC

      A new Samsung tablet certified for Sprint (and others) went through the FCC a few days ago..
       
      Category 6 UE
      LTE Bands 2-4-5-12-25-26-41
      Carrier Aggregation capable for Downlink operations. 2xCA B41

      Looks to be one of the bigger flagship tablets (~10" ?) and will be the 11th 2xB41 CA capable device to come to Sprint.

      Try to make this as short and simple as possible. I have three devices; 2 of which are on the same plan and the third on a separate plan.
       
      The third device is my tab 4 which is picking up SprintB41 site 310120 just great. I get 3 bars downstairs.
       
      My other two devices; Galaxy Note 4 & Galaxy Note Edge for some reason will not pick up this tower. I have tried PRL updates, Profile updates, restarted the phones and all I can get them to connect to is a ClearwireB41 site.
       
      More background info...all devices have same Sim card as when purchased, tablet stays off 3/4 of the day and my phones are on when I wake up and turn them off at night. No matter where I go inside or out my phones won't connect to the Sprint site.
       
      Anybody have any ideas before I call Sprint trying to figure something out? I'm not sure how long the tablet has been able to connect to this site so I'm not sure what to think of it besides agitated that the tablet of all things is connecting. I posted two photos; one of the tablet connected to the Sprint site; second of the Clear wire site my phones connect to.
       
      Thanks in advance.

      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.
