        Is S9 plus waterproof?
        billi_torphy
        over 1 year ago
        With IP68, the S9/S9+ are resistant in fresh water to a maximum of depth of 1.5 metres for up to 30 minutes and are protected from dust--all without the need for extra cases or covers. Please note: Phone may not perform in all extreme conditions.

        What is special about S9 plus?
        jc
        over 1 year ago
        Its tall 18.5:9 aspect ratio has set the standard for all-screen smartphones. It can display a Quad HD+ resolution, yet it still looks outstanding at the default Full HD 1080p. It's the combination of the futuristic-looking curved edges, vibrant colors, and high contrast ratio that make it pop.

        Wi-Fi Calling is an awesome feature some versions of the Samsung Galaxy S9 have that allows you to make calls using the Wi-Fi network instead of the wireless provider's network.

        versie.kutch
        almost 2 years ago
        No, Samsung phones can't FaceTime. Apple doesn't make FaceTime available for Android devices. So no Android-powered smartphone, including the ones from Samsung, are able to run FaceTime. This is just one of the ways Apple keeps iOS users locked to its ecosystem.

        norbert
        almost 2 years ago
        If money is no object, the S9 is undoubtedly the better phone, but until the price of the S9 comes down a little, the S8 is the much better value option. Essentially, you get largely the same phone for a whole lot less money.

        Assuming you find a good deal and you're not put off by the lack of new firmware updates, 5G, top-end performance, super-fast charging, a full-screen design, and newer One UI features, then it could still be a decent choice.

        Unfortunately, Android does not have a native screen recorder on the Galaxy S9 or the S9+. The only way you can record the screen of your Samsung Galaxy S9 or S9+ is to install a third party app. There are many apps to choose from that work great for recording your Galaxy S9 screen.

        This device supports a Nano size SIM card. At the top of the phone, insert the SIM tray removal tool into the hole on the SIM card/memory card tray, and then push until the tray pops out. Place the SIM card on the tray. Make sure that the gold contacts face down and the card is placed as shown.
