Samsung Galaxy S9 is rated 3.7 out of 5 by 35.
Rated 2 out of 5 by from Would never buy Samsung again. I’ve given the phone 2/5 which is fair on their score chart. It would get less but it does have some good functions, they just aren’t for me. I think the phone would be great for an office based person who can be careful with it but being in the building trade it’s far to fragile. Due to the curved screen it cracks incredibly easily, a small amount of pressure will crack the glass and to have the screen replaced it’s extortionate due to the nature of the Samsung screen. Samsung quoted me £280 to replace it. Timpsons even more, £330. A lot of stuff on the phone I found difficult to get used to and to be honest a lot of it was pointless for me and just unused. I often found myself getting frustrated with the phone and wishing I never switched from an apple iPhone to this. The camera is good but for me that’s a very limited selling point as I just want a good photo I’m not a professional photographer. Found the play store, which is the App Store equivalent poor, the music selection was better. There is no FaceTime or anything, you have to use what’s app or something similar, and the android interface in general I didn’t like. I had the phone for over a year and I’d never get another, they come in cheaper than iPhones but as I see it, that’s for a reason. It got to the point I was so fed up of it I still had a year of the contract left and I went and bought an iPhone. As said, great for some people, but certainly not for me.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Just mindblowing I've had this phone for some time now I had the s6 before this and the s3 before that and if I could I'd pre order the s12 right now however if you need a new phone I'd recommend the s10 as it is Samsungs newer version

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Samsung s9 I got this phone for as a christmas gift. Love all the features. Camera, water resistant (as I'm clumsy) and the enough memory to fit alot of apps on, including Samsung health. Not to mention the other handy features where the screen turns on when you lift it and the display is beautiful. Only downfall is Bixby. It's a massive battery drainer. Hope this gets sorted with the next software update.
