    If you are considering upgrading from the Note 8 or the Galaxy S8 to the Galaxy S9 you may want to reconsider. These are my regrets with the Galaxy S9.

    Why not? Seems fine to me. He is the senior news reporter here. Do you have news stories to share?

    Why not??? Because this isn't a news story. There are plenty of Android News stories that could be posted here, but aren't.

    And the moderators asked us all to post them. They opened up the News section to all of us to share news stories, and not many have. If you have true news to share, share it. If not, if not then ignore the posts that you don't like.

    Reviews are news. see them all the time on major tech sites. whether or not you agree with the review, it provides info that should be considered when looking for a new phone.

    Is this really a fair comparison? The video is comparing the S9 to the Note 8. He should be comparing the S9+ to the Note 8. I watched the first couple of points he makes and he mentions that the S9+ has these things but at a higher price. Aren't the S9+ and the Note 8 around the same price (at least when they were both released)?

    some users did consider upgrading to the s9 from the note 8. I believe it is a fair comparison. besides no matter what phones are compared, there will be someone who would think it was not a fair comparison and another phone should have been used :)

    1. Plz dont say Galaxy S9 to start every sentence next go around.
    2. Plus 47 points for a headphone jack... Yea yea I am an audiophile...
    3. Of course the smaller version is less spec'ed out than the latter. Twas marketing but yea it sucks lol
    4. Damn I still gotta G3 lol
    5. I have big hands (6'3) but yea reaching the notifications can get annoying at times.
    6. Let's get some energy, your cadence sounds a little tired, yes I actually listened to it before I watched...

    While that's true, the title of the video should reflect that and say something about not buying the phone if coming from a note 8. Instead it just seems very click baity.
