For the last month I've been using the Galaxy S9+ from Samsung and comparing it with the Galaxy S9 here and there to see what the major differences were. If you've read my reviews before, you know that I prefer Samsung's Note line over their Galaxy S line...
Bottom line Samsung doesn't disappoint with their first flagships of 2018. You won't find many new things worth paying for if you own a S8 or S8+. Those phones are still great, a year later. If you are on the Galaxy S7, I say it's time to make the jump to the inf...
