Purchased this phone in October 2018
Quality of the phone is excellent, only con to this phone is the glass screen scratches easily.
Battery life is better than the Samsung Galaxy s8, camera quality is excellent and a definite upgrade with a dual camera.
Has extra storage for SD cards if you are unable to afford the larger gigabytes.
Games, videos and streaming is seamless, video quality is quite high compared to many other phones like iphones, telstra and other foreign brands.
Charger cord is lacking durability as mine has started to wear at the plug. Phone does get warm while charging which is expected.

Good phone but poor battery life
Have been an android and Samsung user for ages and absolutely loved my s9 plus. Just got my s9 plus and so so disappointed with the battery life. Different processor

Love this phone
I love my Samsung S9+. I used to have an IPhone and switched to Samsung after my husband raved about it. I will never go back to IPhone now. The Samsung is so easy to use and has an excellent quality camera.

Best phone. Great camera
Love the camera. Pictures turn out great and there are several different modes including background blur which gives a great effect to photos. The battery seems to last forever. I have so many photos and apps on my phone and its storage is no where near full
Best phone I have ever had
Good battery, Fast and Heaps of Storage. What more could you ask for? I love this phone. I have been buying samsung S and note phones for years and this is definitely the best they have made.

Love this phone
The size of the screen is a great size and covers the whole screen. The camera quality is sharp and amazing. The 'Live Focus, has especially caught my attention and takes beautiful portraits. Battery life seems ok, but tends to drain out towards The end of The day if it's been in constant use. Apps run smoothly.

Great features and very easy to navigate. Photos are great but closeups are difficult to take unlike new feature on s10 mobile. Finger print location is easy to use for quick security access

to Samsung I have a Galaxy 9 Plus paid $1,200 for it and now it's stuffed new update has taken over my phone I hate what you've done and I will be purchasing a new phone that is not a Samsung
Loving my phone
This phone isnt to big. The graphics are good. The phone is very fast. Bixby is just as good as Google but at times it seems like Bixby doesnt understand. Phone never freezes up. Awesome
Purchased in April 2019 at Walmart for $549.00.
Bought this phone and it no longer charges with the supplied cable after less than 6 months. Other than that it was a great phone. I hope they can fix it for me :(

Can't live without it!
This phone is very close to perfect. The fingerprint read quickly and easily, the camera is the best camera I ever use on a smartphone, it is snappy and has good battery life. After the recent Android P upgrade, it becomes even better with better UI and also a longstanding recycle bin for photos. After close to 1 year, I can say that I am very happy with this phone and hesitant to move to a newer model.

Better than the S7
My S7 broke so I traded for the S9 and couldn't be happier. The phone operates so well the only weakness I have is using the fingerprint ID is sometimes a little slow. I had to get used to using the volume key for answering a call but after a few misses am now quite adept at answering this way. Using the power key for the camera was also a change that needed practice. I don't use Bixby, that might come later so it is turned off for now. One minor change affecting Cool Reader users, I can now store my books on the SD card, (you beauty!).
The apps are fast and easy to use as are the widgets.
To sum up, I won't go for the S10 as the S9 will do me for a long time.
Samsung's Best Phone Yet
After switching from an Apple iPhone to the Galaxy S9+ 4G 64GB I have been extremely happy with the phone features, speed and durability. I am paying the phone off in monthly installments of $100 over 24 months and have a standard case protecting it. The clear screen struggled to stick (possibly a result of the curved edges) however I am yet to have any issues with chips or scratches thankfully. The phone synchronizes well with streaming and file sharing apps and constant app updates are very user friendly

Good Phone With lots of memory and great camera
I chose S9+ due to it's larger screen. even though it is slightly heavier it was a good decision. The finger touch unlock from the back is a call feature. The personal assistant (Bixby) is quite practical and follows most accents.
Overpriced and incredibly fragile
I've been a Samsung user since the S3, and I have NEVER broken a phone screen until owning the S9+. They need to stop making these stupid edge screens which are ridiculously fragile. A very light tap against a bench whilst the phone in my pocket cracked the edge of the screen. It worked fine for a month or so, and then I started getting lines and flickering in the screen. Now it looks like I'll have to send it off for repair at a cost of around $300. I baby my phones, and this one was inside a protective case at the time. The issue is the edges - it is not a smart design choice by Samsung at all. And the pricing is going through the roof! I would NEVER spend over 1k on a smartphone. I got this one for just over $800 on the grey market and even still it feels too expensive. The phone is fine for what it is, but is it that much better than my older Samsung? Nope! Just a bit faster and very slight improvement on battery life. I just hate the way these corporations are not building things to last. Their whole aim seems to be to make as much $$$ off the consumer as they can and basically force them into upgrading earlier than should be necessary. My next phone will likely be one of the cheaper options around $500 from the likes of Motorola, they have a flat screen and all the features most people could need - and I would expect it to be a lot more durable too.

Stop making these stupid edge screens
Have heaps of issues with screen protectors with edge screen. Touch input doesn't work well on edge.
The edge screen offers no benefits and is as useless as bixby... which is annoying.
Apart from that phone is good.. although I have had issues with zoom on camera which may be due to phone being dropped.
I was given this phone as a birthday present. I am enjoying all of the features this phone has to offer. The quality of the photo even in low light is superb. I even bought third party lenses and they work well. I just make sure that the lenses fit snuggly around the phone lenses so that there is no ghosting. I connect the phone to our large screen Samsung Smart TB to watch my favourite YouTube shows and use an external wireless keyboard and mouse when I have a lengthy Instagram post. This phone is easily communicating with other gadgets connected to it. I use it as a scanner as well. I dropped it several times and it is still intact. There is still a lot of things this magnificent phone can do that I haven't even begun to scratch.
Love, love, love it, but has some big faults!
I love so many things about this mobile phone I bought in July 2018, But I'd suggest no-one buy the 1st model of a mobile.
Wait for the 2nd generation 4 bugs to be ironed out!
I purchased it mainly for the added features it has as in fingerprints and Iris scanner (for the biometrics).
My fingerprints and irises have been scanned twice now and both times have become unregistered and now have to go back to using pin / pattern until it's fixed again,
but everytime this happens I have to book another appointment with Samsung which is very annoying.
The first time Samsung wanted to send it away but I'd only had it 3 days & found a way to fix it on my own which I showed them, & I am non tech DUD! No tech skills at all!
Really it is something they should have thought of considering they know these phones back to front or should.
Also does some crazy things with photos only showing quarter of the photo or pages showing only quarter of the frame.
Love, Love, Love it!
This phone is awesome, I am extremely happy with its performance & just love it. I've had no issues at all & I've had it a good 5 months now. I turned of Bixby as its just hopeless & use Google instead. The camera in it is just incredible it takes photos as good as any DSL camera & has wide angle, slow mode, hyper mode, professional mode plus a list of many others. The sound is clear & really nice to listen to even at the higher volumes. The screen display is huge & crystal clear, you can even put a blue light filter on if you choose. I have found that the apps all run smoothly on it without any glitches, I play alot of games & have had no worries so far. I also use my phone for youtube & get lovely clear videos with good quality sound on here. I don't normally recommend phones as I've had no end of bad luck with them but this one is just the Best! My friend has the iPhone x & I've seen him checking out how much better my phone is. Go get yourself one, you'll not be disappointed
Glad I went for the 9 plus
I was a bit apprehensive at first about the bigger phone but alot of friends said they love the bigger screen. The camera is amazing and the big screen works well as I mostly carry it in my handbag. If you are almost needing glasses this is the way to go as it is a large size to see
