Why wouldn't you get it unlocked and then move it to another GSM carrier?

T-Mobile carries it now too.

A 'gimmick'? No, it's a bona fide feature and design element that tens of millions of us around the world happen to love.

Sounds like you need the active line... The edge functions work great for me. If you've never set them up then don't speak bad about them. Quick shortcuts to everything you use is clutch, especially when you can access them while doing other things...

The edge screen especially on the Note series is just stupid, the tapered edges make writing or trying to lasso a picture or text that extends to the edges of the display very difficult.

True, I don't like the edges as well. They only cause a colour shift and they make it more fragile. And the extra functionality is doubtful as you can also have an 'edge panel' on a flat screen.

case makes it less fragile and actually makes the sides flatter by having a lip that goes over the edge if you ever feel like you want your phone to feel flatter

Well it looks wider than the S8 which was a deal breaker for me. Looks good to me.

Well I'll skip the S9 as well then. Smh. I guess I'll just have to get the plus model unfortunately. I wanted the smaller form factor.

There is no way you can tell if that is a s9

look again, that bottom bezel is significantly smaller. no way to know officially, but based off rumors, that is the s9.

People that post these videos need to tell us what kind of phone they use to film it because they're always absolutely sh*t. I'd never want to buy one of what they have. I dont know why, in this day and age, people cant manage a half decent video with all the fast, accurate autofocus cameras on the market. Is it because if it was sharp you'd be able to see how bad the crappy mock up is of the fake phone?

I don’t care what anybody says, PhoneArena’s been spot-on with their news on s series leaks for what, the past 4 years? As far as I’m concerned, this is good as gold til otherwise. Thanks, PhoneArena...
