Will you get the Galaxy S9 or stick with the Note 8?

By | 27th February 2018

Samsung's biggest competitor is itself.

For the past couple days, there's been nonstop coverage surrounding Samsung's new Galaxy S9 – and rightfully so. The phone is gorgeous, its physically changing aperture is a technological marvel, and the new power of the Snapdragon 845 should make the user experience better than ever before.

It's no surprise that the Galaxy S9 is a pretty, feature-packed phone, and while a lot of folks will likely be picking one up as soon as pre-orders open March 2, the reaction to the phone is more of a mixed bag coming from current Galaxy Note 8 owners.

Many of our members in the Android Central forums proudly carry the Note 8 as their daily driver, and this is what they have to say about the newly announced S9.

Definitely not interested. My Note8 will do just fine for the next couple of years

Note 8. I like my S-Pen and the functions that come with the Note. The S9+ looks like a great phone and I will look forward to those improvements coming to the Note 9.

Unless you are someone who changes phone often, then I don't see the point to get a S9+ if you already have a Note 8. Of course that said, if you still want the S9+, get it for these reasons: 1) I am a camera geek and love variable apertures 2) I take a lot of night shots and my Note 8 sucks at that 3) I hate the finger print location in my Note 8 4) I WANT THE NEW ANIMOJIS, excuse me,...


If you've got a Galaxy Note 8, we'd now like to hear from you – Are you going to ditch your Note for the S9?
