Moonshots: T-Mobile does a Galaxy S9 unboxing and shares first camera samples


Leave it to T-Mo to do flamboyant unboxing of the world's newest flagships, the Galaxy S9 and S9+, which are not only carrying the best of what their predecessors had to offer in terms of design and features, but have addressed their shortcomings, too. 

They move the finger scanner around, add variable aperture cameras, and garnish it all with a faster chipset, at much the same prices as last year, at least on US carriers. Perhaps that is why T-Mobile does the unboxing in low gravity, and even offers sample photos done with the S9 - you know, moonshots.

Great video, now all you have to do is figure out how to stop dropped calls on the network.

Yep. I've been with T-Mobile for over a decade and haven't experienced this dropped calls problem you speak of.

For over a decade? Really? 5 years ago they were still 4th on the list and the network was worst than Sprints. Lol.

Or maybe rsiders was and has always been the guy who's got the highest priority on the T-Mobile network, even higher than the T-Mobile owners themselves. That's why he's not experienced any dropped calls for a decade. :P

That's because you trust stupid lists over actual customer experience. Started with T-Mobile in 2007 in Ohio. Baltimore area in 2008 and on. All my Sprint friends we're constantly yelling at their phones or customer service so I know a little something. ;)

I agree. Network has treated me great. Love to be able to get great coverage anywhere. The whole family getting unlimited lte while also letting me purchase and use any phone in the world that I choose to use as my daily driver is huge.

Says the guy who probably has never used T-Mobile or at best, hasn't used them in years. Your opinion means literally nothing here.

They faked the moon landing better than the US did.
