Hey guys. So I recently bought this phone (4 weeks ago) in Dubai. It's a 256GB S9 and it came with Android 9 already installed. I charged the phone to 100 percent and started using it without installing any apps. I was getting a battery drain of 1% every 7 minutes. After installing my apps and transferring my data from my Samsung A3 using Smart Switch, (drumrolls please), I was getting a drain of 1% every 3-4minutes

The store I bought it from sent me to their care centre who did a diagnostic test that showed the battery life is good. They said charge it a couple of cycles and it should be okay. Well geuss what it isn't.

I'm wondering is this issue an Android 9 issue? And if so is Samsung going to release an update to improve battery life because I keep charging my phone two to three times a day an I'm not a heavy user of my phone.

My A3 did way better with battery life honestly.

Should I go for a S9 or a OnePlus 6T? the OnePlus costs about 50 USD more.

Choice, 25 May 2019Should I get S9 or S10e, price difference is 50 euros!If the difference is only 50euros, then I suggest you get the S10e since it's a newer phone with some better tech inside "faster processor, more ram, starts with 128gb hdd & more stuff". I have an S9 and it's a great phone. I've never had any issues with it whatsoever but it's over a year old so I would definitely buy the newer phone.

Best phone ever

Choice, 25 May 2019Should I get S9 or S10e, price difference is 50 euros!Don't not buy s9, the ram as low as cheap devices, the free ram only 1.5Gb and when you install your daily app it goes at 1Gb or lower, so because of this it never run fortnite at highest quality you need to chose the lowest quality to run smoothly. in general s9 suffer from low ram and does't run smoothly.

Arslan, 23 May 2019Should i get note 8 or s9I was in the same dilemma between these two phones last year. I went for S9 but I regret a bit because I'm into sketching and drawing which is cool with note 8. Note 8 got all the latest updates in it. But I would say only go for note 8 if you are okay with big screen in regular use. Otherwise, S9 is still my favorite phone and I would also recommend it to you as well as it is a very compact phone and has a complete package of specs.
