Anyone have a Galaxy S9+?

Hola.

My Pixel's still a great phone, but I'm fighting the urge to upgrade.
Back in my Note 4 days, holding that beast was a bit of work. It seems the 9+ is even taller but not as wide.
I imagine if you can do a swipe-down gesture without having to actually reach the top, I could live with that.
On the Pixel, you can swipe down on the fingerprint reader to drop the notifications down, but I don't know if that's common with other phones.

I'm not sure if I care for the edges and worry about unintentional presses from lack of bezel.
I do miss all the extra Samsung bells and whistles though (heart rate monitor, SD card, etc).
Just curious on people's thoughts/experiences.

Can’t keep up with techs, I am still humming along with my 6S.
Sometimes I want to try Android but then all my family members are Apple faithful, I don’t want to bring 2 different chargers to family trips.

That 6S is holding up well still? My mom has an iPhone 5 that won't die but I'd love to replace (the screen size is laughable compared to what's the norm now). I figured anything is an upgrade and doesn't have to be the latest and greatest ($$$).

Well, I caved got the S9+. That didn't take long. :p
Traded my Pixel in for ~$325. I wouldn't get that much selling it on my own.
I haven't played with it enough yet, but so far, it's pretty impressive.

Im waiting on the Note9 deal this summer and pull the trigger for it. I played with the S9+ and I gotta say its a great phone if you don't have an S8 or S8+. Definitely the phone gotten taller and not wider so thats a bit bummer for me.

Yah, I still got my 6s+ too... phone prices are ridiculous!

Mine is holding up well. I finally upgraded to iOS12 recently, lol. I wanted the Pixel3 for its camera, but I hate how its missing the damn headphone jack and it feels pretty much like an iPhone clone. I'll check out the S10, but I'll probably wait until they're cheaper. Oh, then the S11 will be coming out, so I'd wait for it. The cycle never ends...

I think Best Buy had some crazy good deals for pre ordering them.
