Great phone, tried Apple, too controlling, tried Pixel, too incomplete

Really like what Samsung has done, has the S8 and the little differences are enough to go to the S9. Love the size, if I want something larger, I'll grab a tablet. My biggest complaint is the battery. I'm usually near a charger if I have to use the display for work. I would prefer the s9+ two camera system.

The best I have used

The phone is built really very well and user experience is at it's best. this phone has many features that need in nowadays. I have used an S3 in the past and the main thing I love about Samsung phones is the Display. the camera also exceptionally good and UI also works smoother.

A very nice phone

A slight, but important upgrade over the S8 - managing to iron out most flaws, but some creases are hard to remove. In this case, I refer to two most annoying things. The poor type input, and the RAM greedy software.

Not a fan

I switched over from iPhone. The iPhone is much easier to text, type, search the internet. I may just need to get used to my new phone but I am very frustrated with my galaxy 9. I could text one handed on my iPhone faster and more accurately than with both hands ongalaxy 9.

Great Successor to the S8

I had the Galaxy S8 and the I-Phone 8 Plus and this phone is excellent for the most part. The battery life is good given I keep the display set on QHD. Why keep it on HD or FHD if the screen resolution is QHD? I find that a charge does last me the day with adjustments to increase battery life. I am averaging about 30% usage daily (with the Always On Display off). The display is very sharp and robust. I like the wider aspect ratio as well.
I am very impressed with the Dolby Atmos on my Multimedia. With the supplied AKG Earphones, sound is really good, surround is very effective. The audio in the earpiece is good, the speakerphone quality is good, but could be louder.
Phone works well after the 10/19/2018 Security updates. The phone is very snappy and I have yet to experience any lag. The UI is easy to navigate and has many options. The keyboard is very intuitive and has many options. Fingerprint sensor works great unlike the S8. I do recommend a screen protector and case. I use the S9 for field Weather Spotting and Ham Radio (WX2WMU) events.
