As of the day this video hits the feeds, you can officially buy the Samsung Galaxy S9. It’s an excellent smartphone, but it’s so similar to its predecessor that, in your haste to move into it, you might miss some great options both new and old. So join me for a look at my favorite under-represented Galaxy S9 features in a change of pace from the usual round of reviews and first-looks – and if you’ve got favorite Galaxy S9 features of your own to share, please do so down in the comments!

    after considering android updates, I think I'm going for the XZ2 Compact instead. flagship specs in a 5inch body, it's hard to beat.

    I got my s9+ two days ago lol I don't know if I got it early because I preordered it or if I got randomly selected to get it

    I don't even have the phone and don't plan on buying it but I have to support my boy Michael Fisher.

    Stock android never even had app lock, file manager, customisation,etc few of which were copied from TouchWiz and sense UI. Agreed that stock android is fast but back then we had to download apps for each useful features which slowed down the phone. TouchWiz, Sense and MIUI having these features built-in were seamless.

    Thanks for the tips! That notification setting was DEFINITELY needed!


    (March 17, 2018 - 3:28 am)

    Best phone of 2018, at least until the note 9

    Anyone noticed the sudden sound volume increase throughout the whole video?

    Gotta give Samsung alot of credit they really improved their devices so glad they got rid of TouchWiz!

    Never like the AR emoji. It's a novelty item that a lot of people can live without.

    Just jumped from an S6Edge to an S9+ today and I totally love all the new things that are on it in the 3 generations since my last phone.

    this easy swipe down to open the Notification center is not a new function on the S9. Samsung updated the Launcher back in August and since than there was this option. I use this since the beginning on my Note8 and i like it. thousand times more than this useless fingerscanner gesture.

    my favorite feature on my Note8 is still the screen off memo and Smart Select, so ithese not new one's actually.

    PS I like that Samsung allows us to train Bixby. After a few days Bixby works acutally very well for me. That's why I don't like Google Assistent. You can't train Assistent and it's super annoying to have Google popping up every 12 sec while watching TV or sth like that… Bixby has never done this.

    Is that a first party dark theme u have? Or is it from the theme store?

    (March 17, 2018 - 3:28 am)

    I definitely missed out on these features…. Because i missed out on the S9 completely.😭

    Lol Samsung has good features, even on my note 3 running lollipop, I have features from nougat like multi window which is good but the old Samsung UI is terrible


    (March 17, 2018 - 3:28 am)

    7:23 logo reflecting off phone is awesome


    (March 17, 2018 - 3:28 am)

    The apps edge is literally the reason I can't leave Samsung. Finally someone gets it lmao

    I seriously don't know how this channel doesn't have millions of subscribers already, I always point friends here, the ones that don't think I'm a giant nerd for it, and the quality is unmatched. You're being robbed here, Mr.Fisher


    (March 17, 2018 - 3:28 am)

    Sweet learned a few cool things. Will definitely try some of these on my s9 Plus.


    (March 17, 2018 - 3:28 am)

    Love ur amazing videos man. U are amazing.

    I wasn't going to get this phone. But my Note 8 is cracked. I loved the audio of this phone. The screen was noticeably better than mine ( idk how they do it ) I think Coral blue is beautiful and I can afford it. So yeah going to wait a couple weeks see if TMobile can come up with a better deal than shoot

    Bixby sounds like Scarlett Johanson in Captain America scene where she used the phone to repeat stuff LOL

    Samsung stop copy apple emoji

    MR. T

    (March 17, 2018 - 3:28 am)

    Samsung totally pulled an "apple" move with this s9 model.. There is literally no important difference between the 2,, I was just checking out the speaker quality of the s9 and it's just as crappy as the s8's.. i've barely even noticed it being much louder and it for sure wasn't any better quality..

    Andrea Salmon

    (March 17, 2018 - 3:28 am)

    Same old design where is the outrage android people get mad at apple for same old design

    I would love to see some sort of a collaboration with Mr. Mobile and the Tech Chap (I am sure you always get these kind of comments…so maybe a mega-collab with everyone¿ lol).
