Samsung Galaxy S9 to run for a day and a half on a single charge, will sport front stereo speakers?

A Reddit user, who claimed to have had hands-on time with a pre-production version of the Samsung Galaxy S9, posted an AMA (Ask Me Anything) thread on the social forum site the other day. He fielded questions related to the unit he played around with, noting that the model was "very close to production." And while it might not mean anything, the fact that the thread was deleted could indicate that his story is legitimate and hit too close to home...

The S7 Edge has a 3600mah battery. The S9 should have a 3000mah battery. Do the math.

Absolutely rubbish with just a 3000mAh battery once apps are installed the vast majority will only get 10 - 12h if we are lucky.

When I used to own S8 with 3000mAh battery I used to full day of use without any issue and now on my note 8 I can get more than a day. But you need some tips and tricks.

For me , I don't really care about stereo speakers on a phone. That's what headphones are for. Just picked me up a new set of wireless Jaybirds and no cell phone speakers can sound like they do.

maybe I'm missing something, but stereo speakers on a phone has never been a "thing" for me. the sound is never up to par, especially if you're listening to music. earbuds and headphones give much better sound than any phone speakers, even than the vaunted HTC line from the past few years. until they create phones with Bose type sound from the speakers directly, this won't be a selling point for me.

Is this a down grade? Remember people saying they could get 2 days on S8.
