    And thus begins the Lineage OS usage on this phone - believe me the overall improvements on the S9 series with Lineage OS is astonishing!

    Also, there's /e/ OS too, and a couple of others.
    Thats the benefit of buying flagships over mid/low end. You always get other OS support.

      Anonymous, 05 Apr 2022Funny that you feel the need to dig at Xiaomi when Sony pho... moreTrue but Samsung and Xiaomi are in top 5 mobile brands and where is Sony? Sony makes phones just for the sake of it and to stay in the game. The guy is right. Xiaomi should provide better support for their devices as thats their main bussiness and they deserve all negativity until they do it right. Since they're not so cheap anymore they should pay more attention to software support, but I guess they shoot them self in the leg because they have like 50 models per year and its tough to care for all of them + they have so many versions because of selling in different regions... Its not going to be easy but they must do it sooner or later

And if ROM itself isn't rubbish, the fact bunch of apps complain about bootloader being unlocked creates such massive hassle to deal with everything it's just not worth it. I was there and got so fed up with it that I dumped it all and just went with iPhone. I don't care if it's all locked down, at least whatever I get works much better and that was in the end more importan tthan custom ROM's and whatnot.

            The Android Freak, 05 Apr 2022Filled with so many bugs. At least with OnePlus, it's MASSIVELY easier to open up the bootloader and shoehorn Pixel Experience or whatever ROM you fancy, and the instructions are easier to follow than cooking Paella or Beef Curry. You literally can't open up the bootloader if you bought the "superior" Snapdragon version, which sucks because even a mid-range phone with a 2022 Mediatek chip runs better than the Exynos S9.

              Sad news for S9 owners. But Samsung is actually improved. Even mid rangers got great support now.

                This is very good smart phone this mobile is so power full Graphic is smart is good for gaming

Not that the s9 series phones will no longer work. I think you just need to restart your phone

                          So a 4 year old phone gets its last update and is now no longer supported. Very poor value after spending $1,000 on it.

                              I find it ironic that my texts begin to stop going through consistently this morning, then I googled to see how old my S9 was and come across this. What. Are. The. Odds.

                                Anonymous, 05 Apr 2022"major update" with all new feature removed lol ... moreAh yes, the QUANTITY question. Because you Android fans only care about quantity of everything. The moar the better. No matter what anyone shows you as a proof you'll dismiss it. There are numerous quality of life changes, fixes and updates that aren't flashed around, but are present.

                                    Not to mention the reality is that those updates are super buggy until like 20 updates are sent out that you just have to wait and update and wait and update for.
                                    And they cripple the older ones.
                                    Especially ones like 6s. Low storage, ram, and battery capacity was the death of most older iphones despite what their fans claimed about "oh but optimized". Especially after updates.
