Samsung Galaxy S9 and S9+ update fixes call stability issue

Samsung has just updated it's newest flagships – the Galaxy S9 and S9+. The update brings fixes to some call stability issues users have been having since the launch of the device, as well as improve wallpaper quality. The update should be available worldwide in a couple of days, so don't panic if you don't get it today or tomorrow.

The new Galaxy smartphones have been regularly updated ever since day one of their launch. The devices already got the Samsung Security Patch for March, 2018, while an update two weeks ago targeted some stability issues regarding the facial recognition feature and fixed some problems surrounding the Samsung Pay service. It's not a surprise that Samsung has been lightning-quick regarding Galaxy S9 and S9+ updates, as both phones have been out for less than a month.

To download the new update, go to Settings --> Software Updates. It's a 400ish MB download, so you better be connected to a Wi-Fi network.

Hopefully there will be an update for the awful battery life I'm getting on my Exynos S9 :/

Try toggling the data saver on under data usage... its helped me significantly and i still get all my notifications and alerts. not sure exactly how it cuts down on data but so far it has done well

Thanks for the tip. I just did that, hopefully it will fix this, because I am about to trade it for something else if I keep getting barely 3 hrs of sot on moderate use.

I used to get around 6.5 hrs of sot on my S8+ and around 7.5 hrs on my Note 8. I expected at least 4.5 hrs on the S9, but I am shocked by the terrible battery life I am getting so far.

Also turn off Wi-Fi and Bluetooth scanning when these settings are off.

Thats very surprising , I am getting 5 hours + SOT on my exynos S9+ . QHD+ always with location on / Wifi on/ AOD on / performance mode on. Edge lighting on / Bixby voice on. My experience has been amazing. Note 8 was giving me 3-3.5 hours sot (exynos)

Apart from the QHD+, I also have everything turned on, and I'm not big on games, yet I am getting this terrible battery life.

Can anyone tell me if they have noticed that the touch to expose you image no longer seems to work in S9+ or is there a setting somewhere i am missing? Now all that happens when u try to expose a part of a to dark or light image is that it refocuses, not lighten/darken the area as in older galaxies or do I have a defective model?

It’s a crap shoot with every new flagship. We all anticipate the very best performance when we lay out $1000.00 for anything new.
