My wife is happy to hear this while I am not. I have purchased every samsung flagship since the S3 and have enjoyed the technology advancements that Samsung has made over the years. The S9 plus was a little bit of a disappointment in that it was nearly identical to the S8 Plus, but there was enough new technology (new camera, better fingerprint placement, more ram, etc) that I am still glad I got the S9 Plus. I am pretty sure I won't buy the Note 9 though- I love the Note 8 that I have and if the 9 is no different, why get it? I will save a thousand dollars and wait for the release of the S10 or whatever they end up calling it. I might still consider the Note 9 but Samsung will need to come up with something BIG and NEW for it for me to consider getting it.
