Hi Andrew,

Based on the official Samsung forum:

https://eu.community.samsung.com/t5/Galaxy-.../bd-p/uk-galaxy

the top 3 issues for S9/S9+ are:

1) S9 speaker phone cutting out on call
2) SD CARD ERROR ON S9+
3) Mobile HDR not enabled & Black crush

I only have problem with call drop. I don't use the SD card so I can't comment more about this. For item no. 3, I no even tested it yet. So far, tested with digi and maxis, both same problem. Means, no matter I call or receive call, call will disconnected for call within 10 minutes. Before the latest firmware update (ARCC), it drop more frequent if compare with the latest firmware update.

Some of the forumers I ask in Lowyat also have similar problem if you refer to V1 thread, but seem like no one take it seriously.

Have you consider possibility of hardware problem causing these call problems?? If it irritates you why don't you send in to check??

If you are already on the S8+, not so much changes to make the upgrade worthwhile. Note 9 is on the way already btw. tongue.gif

Mind to share what kind of phone casing you are using and best suit to this phone?

The whole issue is just about feeling tak syiok over snapdragon version being comparatively better this time round I suppose.
Come to think of it... if I really wanna get by the day without charging based on my usage pattern... I'll probably be needing a 7000mah battery built in.

That's a lot of battery to be squeezed into a phone. More likely to happen in a tablet laugh.gif

Everyone else got this problem? Especially for the 1st one - call drop.

Of course its not gonna happen in a phone anytime soon. It's a point that a friend made when we're talking about S9+ only having 3500mah batt and P20 having 4000mah.

In my case that 500mah didn't matter as its just minutes of extra batt life. To really make a difference, I'll need at least double... so its back to powerbanks.

It's not bad per say.... it's just expectations vs reality laugh.gif

Most of those youtube drain test still has the exynos S9+ in the uppermost positions among flagships.

Never encountered call drop nor micro sd card issues.
So far best stylist designs, good stereo speakers, best camera especially on night mode, Atmos Dolby system with headphones, Animoji n many features.

Battery life on exynos better than sd 845.

Using dual SIM while roaming in Singapore, no games or navigation, just emails, web browsing and WhatsApp with occasional FB. Is this good or bad?

3 min/1% battery discharged.. seems bad considering ur usage does not seems like heavy usage
imagine if its heavy usage, 1 to 2 min/1%

im getting at least 4min/1% during note 3 era

so max usage around 5h sot based on ur usage pattern

I would say this is considered ok by android standards. Those who claim 7 - 8 hours battery life are usually those who stay put a place with wifi connected most of the time.
