  1. dan dalan says:

    My only problem with my s9 plus is the burn in image(which is problem of every amoled phone).

  2. [ Gaming Inconsistently ] says:

    The security and infrequent updates are why I might switch to the Pixel 3 when it comes out… Hopefully it has a good screen D:

  3. Zayd Yar Khan says:

    If you had to pick 1 phone as of 11th September 2018, which phone would you choose for professional mobile videography? (Assume it's free)
    2 categories to choose from.
    1) What phone would make it a powerhouse with after-market attachments & unlock it's complete potential
    2) Straight outta the box powerhouse

  4. OnTheRoadAgain says:

    I am using the GS9+ as a daily driver since april now and I very rarely have any issues whatsoever with it. Especially the stability issue you describe is not present in my device. It is currently running for about 20 days straight without any reboot and it does not show the slightest sign of lag. Also, the battery works very well for me. Often I still have like 50-60% in the evening despite having used it reasonably heavy throughout the day. Except when doing really heavy travling with like GPS track recording, bluetooth connected to the car via RSAP, using wifi, streaming music via BT and constantly using the phone, it is nowhere near empty at the end of the day. I totally agree about the bloatware, though. I still cannot get my head around the fact that I am plain unable to uninstall facebook natively. Except for that, I am very satisfied and the S9+ meets my requirements very sovereignly. I really enjoy using the device as it amazingly fast, I do not recognize any lag whatsoever, even with heavy usage. But I gotta say, I switched to the device from the Galaxy S4 … so there's quite a gap in the experience anyway and I can not say much about how the S9+ compares to younger devices. Would still fully recommend it though.

  5. logisgood Lei says:

    Thanks for the great video! Did you notice that the edge of black texts and black color blocks are usually colourful on s9/s9+/s8/s8+? But iPhone X doesn't have this issue. Wired cause they're both made by Samsung.

  6. xzz says:

    i really never update my s9+ anyway

  7. Bennie Mangle Jr. says:

    Have you reviewed the new Note9, and if so how do you compare it to the SO plus?

  8. 1980s Retro says:

    Have got Galaxy S8. I like it. Was thinking about getting S9 so thanks for the review.

  9. Sunny Bhai says:

    Bad review i have s9plus and my phone is best

  10. Somalin Su says:

    I'm samsung fan and I love everything about my S9+( the design *no notch*, battery life, etc) . But it takes so long to load a game i've been playing (sometimes it even freezes and crashes). If you play a game you must know how frustrated it is. Most people playing the game convince me to change to iPhone instead next time. Other than that everything about the S9+ is perfect

  11. Kiki LaRue says:

    One of the most honest and thorough reviews on this phone.

  12. Amine dennouni says:

    I wonder if he does honest tech reviews…he deleted my previous comment

  13. Ed Saucin says:

    When you brought up the camera UI, I totally agree. I found it very difficult to figure out how to take a photo or record a video.

  14. Shadow Pawned says:

    Easily subscribed! Nicely explained, and I like your perspective on software – hardware too <3

  15. Scott H says:

    I have to agree with alot of the comments…I have had this phone since launch, and have had zero issues. I have a 200gb microsd card, and have almost no free space, and yet zero lag.

    I have dropped this phone a dozen times, and not a scratch on it. My wife and kids all have iphone 8+s, and I've had to replace 2 out of the 3 already.

    Samsung phones aren't for people who want ultra-simple, they offer more use options and settings. Which may be why you aren't a fan of the camera controls.

  16. VMG Channel says:

    Awesome Video!

  17. BlackPantha says:

    No offense, but your opinion is coming from a very small niche of users who have the luxury of using multiple phones a year. The average consumer will use their phone for 2 years and that will be the only phone they use. So I appreciate your opinion but I will only take it for a grain of salt.

  18. C O says:

    I hear you, but most of the flaws you mentioned seem to be much less problematic than the problems with other phones: (1) pixel 2 is 835 and lags worse than S9+, (2) the notch on the iphone X

  19. rope says:

    I really think iOS is the best phone operating system, not because I’m a fanboy.

    Before I start I’m just saying in my opinion I enjoy using iOS more then Android sometimes since iOS 12.

    Anyway, iOS is better as it’s a proprietary closed off operating system, unlike android. Android isn’t locked down, it’s free and anyone can do anything with it, unlike iOS, have you seen their App Store??

    Apple is a dictatorship, they control hardware and software.

    Google controls software and a bit of hardware.

    Samsung controls hardware but not their software and so on.

    Apple has everything locked down, they control everything. That’s what makes there user experience so damn good.
