Ok, leaks coming thick and fast, here's the S9+ CAD against the S8+ CAD. Slightly smaller, less rounding on corners, but pretty much the same phone it looks.

I'm still happy with my S7, into which I have put a 128GB micro SD.


Given the other calls on my stretched tech budget this year, I don't really see any compelling features that would make an S9 upgrade a priority. Apart from a new "ooooooh" design, I'm struggling to see any real advantages over an S7/S8 from a functionality standpoint, or in terms of my typical use. This contrasts to the S7, where the leap in performance and camera quality etc over the older Samsung Galaxy phone I had was massive.


I'm in the minority who wish they would reinstate the FM radio that my old Galaxy S3 had. Seldom used but, for instance, when I was wandering around Welling trying to get home a couple of years ago, after an earthquake has disrupted the trains and the cell system was overloading, it would have been a handy way to get information.
