I have purchased every Samsung S line phone since the S2 with the exception of the S4. I will not be purchasing the S9 this time around. Incremental updates don't cut it since the cost of the phones are over $1k now. My note 8 is an awesome phone and will have to survive until the Note 9 comes out but only if it fixes the fingerprint issues by placing it on the front and not on the back. I read that Samsung believes the S9 will outsell the S8. I have my doubts with the cost sitting at $1100. Also, what's with only offering Purple or Grey??
