Samsung Galaxy 9
I upgraded from a Galaxy 8 to the 9 and suitably impressed with the phone. I use the phone out in the country on the Telstra network. The camera on the S9 is impressive and has been able to capture images in low light.

Overall good but the selfie camera tends to loose quality over time
The phone is overall good, but the selfie camera tends to loose its quality after a while. Also at night time the photos seem to come blurry compared to iPhone where their photos are more clear.
The battery lasts longer than the iPhone however when the phone reaches over 1 year or so it seems to deteriorate.
I love photos and take a lot of photos. The problem I sometime have is the photos turn up a bit fuzzy.
Some apps do seem to run a bit slower and some freeze I.e. Facebook. At the moment I have not been able to do any updates to my apps for quite a few months. They all go in pending and never complete the update which is frustrating. I keep deleting some of my data to ensure there is space but still nothing.
Also the prices of this phone keep increasing and is really not affordable to buy outright. I ended up going on a lease plan instead.

Amazing phone with everything you need!
Great phone. Great colour. Apps are super fast with no running issues so far. Camera is very clear and takes great photos and videos with no blurring even at night. Apps run very fast with no crashing or freezing. Phone runs well even when close to capacity without slowing down. Phone also has tbe ability to take an sd card upto 128gb for plenty of storage for all those photos and precious memories. Easy to use for everything from social media to email to just taking basic notes or even using for a shopping list. Battery life is also great even when connected to wifi and mobile data. Easy to buy a universal case and screen protector for. All in all a great phone. Screen is a great size perfect for everyday reading. So worth the money. I couldn't wait to get my hands on this phone after upgrading from samsung s5 and woah definitely a huge step up from the bare basics.
Best phone i own from Samsung
Been a samsung user for years. I'm in brand repping business and this phone is perfect to use if you dont have DSLR for capturing photos. There is an option where you can blur background photo with some cool effects.

The perfect mix of
I've been using this smartphone for over a year and cannot fault it. Screen size is optimal, and the display is durable and well designed. I use my smartphone all day long on a daily basis for both work and play, and find apps run smoothly and battery life is fantastic. Android is a very user friendly system and Samsung are both high quality and value for money. I would recommend to anyone. Photo quality is exceptional and the phone in general is a pleasure to use.
Best phone I have ever had
This is easily the best phone I have ever had
Photos are amazing and it has a great ease of use
My only cons are battery life and Bixby
I recommend disabling Bixby and just using Google assistant its is just annoying
Purchased in June 2018 at Optus.
Everything is great except Bixby and bluetooth not compatible with some VW/Skoda models
Great phone and camera, had it for over a year and hasn't missed a beat, no lagging or over heating issue and battery life is good. My only criticism is bixby, cant get rid of it, the bixby button is waste of space as I don't use it and I wish i can disable it and assign it for other functions.
Another issue I have and have discovered with other VW owners is the bluetooth. You can connect with calls but not for media, need to repair bluetooth if I want to use it with media
Good phone. I love samsung and so easy to transfer files, photos and contacts over to samsung using smartswitch! Highly recommend samsung. Good size and easy to navigate and use.
Samsung is the best device for me
This is my 5th Samsung smartphone. They just work and have easy access to latest updates.
Always get 2 every 2 years, one for me, one for wife and pass on old to kids.

Upgrade of camera
Had been putting off upgrading my Samsung Galaxy since it was working well and I'm not one who needs the latest in technology. Turns out I'm impressed with the functionality of the camera embedded in the S9. Previously saw how the iPhone Xs camera took photos and was impressed with that but couldn't justify changing from being an Android user to an Apple user just from the camera. The filters available, the pro mode etc are all very much in use and a definite plus by the upgrade!
The phone has terrible battery life and horrible network coverage . Since febuary when they updated to android PIE , my blueetoth seems to connect and disconnect on its own.Have given the phone to sevice centre for about 3 times and they are unable to find a solution and have told me to wait the year till android come out with a update .
Please dont waste your money on their phones , the after service is absolutely terrible.
Great phone if you use all aspects
If your in to having all the modern up to date accessories then you will love this phone as did I but I'm happy with s5 or s6 so you could save hundreds if your not to concerned for being a little behind or out dated.

Love my phone
We have had Samsung galaxy phones for years and love them especially the s9 so easy to use and so many great features. The camera is wonderful so many great pics of the kid's and nature never fails me would recommend to anyone

Not live up to expectation
Not sure if it is build issue but the finger print sensor paint peel off from two months of use.
Camera has good exposure for darker scene. Focus is not as fast as my previous Sony and picture seem a bit blurry when zoom in.
Battery is another area it can do better. With only browsing internet on train/bus, i can barely get a whole day with full charge.

Samsung getting the job done.
Very happy with the phone in total. Great camera and user interface. No problems to report.
System runs smoothly and operates as it should. Making calls and sending messages work as it should.
Purchased in June 2017.
Happy with it
Camera is much better than my old samsung s6, works pretty well in low light conditions as well.
It's not as thin as the s6 edge but this works for me because I find it easier to grasp.
So far there has been no slowdown and the battery life has been quite good.

Perfect when I met you but 3 months in I started to see your true colours
I was very excited about this phone and had been waiting for Samsung to come out with a device that was much like my first borderless phone love- the mimix, this phone has it all on the spec sheets, great camera, slim design (fits in small hands no worries, little wiggle to reach the top, but otherwise manageable for one handed use) amazing screen, big battery! Better placement of the fingerprint scanner.
This new little guy was lasting me all day, no issues, then about 3 months in and I get a software update around this time. The battery life drops, dramatically! It’s now needing to be charged once a day, then about another 3 months and it’s needing to be charged 3 times a day. Now, almost 10 months in and it’s constantly plugged into the battery pack
, it kills a 10,000mah battery. This thing is a vampire. , just sucks all the juice out of it.
The new ui is good, but they oversimplified it, makes it hard to find things in settings. The gestures take a little bit to get used to but no problem. Camera is a little over saturated compared to an iPhone. You can take some nice shots on it, but takes a bit of fidgeting. I have the screen on at half brightness as it can’t really handle any more than that. Even then, unplugged it’s lasting me about 3 hours. I play two ar games on this guy, and they can be played, but the battery really cops it.
Purchased in August 2018 at Ebay for $799.00.
So far so good
The shape is thin and long, allowing for one hand operation. The colour of the screen is vivid, responsive. The photo quality is great too. I love the slow motion video.
