To calculate the overall star rating and percentage breakdown by star, we don’t use a simple average. Instead, our system considers things like how recent a review is and if the reviewer bought the item on Amazon. It also analyses reviews to verify trustworthiness.
This is my first Samsung phone and so far, I'm very impressed. The sound is brilliant, much better than my previous Sony Xperia XZ and the camera takes great photos too. The apps edge feature is also very handy and the screen resolution is brilliant. I've found the battery to hold its charge very well, although I haven't used it for anything too demanding. The wireless charging works very well in my car and with the new wireless charger I bought for my desk at work. The fast charger that comes with the phone charges it so quickly. I think I'll be able to get away with just charging it at work via the wireless charger when required and that should last until the next day when I get to work.
I've found the phone to be very fast and responsive with no lagging so far. There are also some very handy tools for helping the phone run smoother, such as putting apps to sleep that haven't been used for a certain amount of time. I'd certainly recommend this phone, especially at its current price on Amazon of £569 (reduced from £739).
The only thing that I found rather odd is the placement of the sound rocker. I'm right handed and they're located on the upper left side of the phone, so it can be a little awkward adjusting the volume. I'm also not sure if the Bixby feature needed a physical button on the side of the phone, especially as you can access this by swiping in from the left hand side of the screen.
I work 12 hour shifts and don't use my phone very much. I only catch up on WhatsApp or occasionally an Internet site on my break of 40 minutes and rarely make a phone call. When I get home, I have 30-31% battery left. My previous phone (A21), which incidentally cost a third of the price would still have 70-90% left, and I now take it with me to do all of the above. It also has an annoying bixby site programmed into it that I don't want, which keeps popping up a message when I turn the phone on, and there doesn't seem to be a way of getting rid of it. I certainly would not buy one of these again
Bought in April, reviewing October. I love this phone, absolutely no issues with it. It arrived quickly, in good packaging, no signs of it being anything other than brand new. Easy set up and absolute plain sailing since. I've had no reason for concern or to contact the seller so can't comment on service but all in all very good first impressions.
I won't go into lengthy details of the phone itself as there are plenty of reviews around for that. The camera is great, phone is lightweight, having extra storage is perfect for me, I have a case and screen protector at all times and have zero marks or issues. The face scanner isn't great but I use fingerprint mostly. I actually prefer the rear scanner to front which surprises me. I dont find the edge feature useful and if anything is problematic with getting decent screen protectors but I dont hate it either. Really love this phone as a step up from the S7.
Primarily an android user and have tried several brands including iPhone for a short while. This is my second samsung and I only bought it to replace my previous phone after unintentionally destroying it. Anyway, enough waffle. The phone arrived from the seller in its original un-tampered packaging, which was wrapped in a generous amount of bubble wrap and place into another box, which was then placed in a standard shipping bag.
The phone itself lives up to my expectations and does everything I'd want it to. As mentioned I previously had galaxy s7 which met a undignified end, this phone, as expected, is considerably better than the s7 I previously had so was a worthy replacement that is not as mentally priced as the newer releases but still gives some nice new features to play with, which I won't bother writing about as they're listed in the product description. If it does within the warranty period, I'll edit my post.
The phone arrived earlier than expected which was a bonus boxed and sealed perfect really pleased my son helped me change sim over and get started and the guru from o2 shop had told me to download the Samsung switch from App Store and I was able to transfer all my data texts emails photos videos from my old phone to my new one so I am very pleased thanks great phone
Bought a Galaxy S9 with a promise of brand new in pristine condition and was exactly what I got. No scratches or marks and looked and felt brand new. Arrived quickly in original box with all accessories. Very impressed with what I got and met the description perfectly. Very trustworthy company to use and will be using again when required. Thank you for delivering as promised so promptly.
I was a bit apprehensive buying a used phone as opposed to my last phone which was refurbished but this is working perfectly so far. It looks excellent and is not too big. Only a minor mark on the screen but otherwise looks and works as new. Battery life seems reasonable and the apps are very responsive. Assuming I don't lose this phone like I did the last, this will hopefully be a great phone for the next few years...
