Is the Galaxy S9 worth buying in 2019?

Two of the best phones of last year were the Samsung Galaxy S9 and S9+. Both phones delivered phenomenal AMOLED displays, fast performance, great designs, and trusty cameras.

The S9 and S9+ are still great phones here in 2019, but with the Galaxy S10 series looming around the corner, are last year's flagships still worth considering?

Here's what the AC forum community has to say.

The S9+ is really amazing, I love mine (and I have no plans replacing it anytime soon, TBH). But I'd wait for the S10 if I were you.


Definitely. I got a great trade in a couple weeks ago and purchased for under $600. I did look at everything that was going to be on the S10 but decided that it wasn't for me, especially the higher price.


S9+ is a steal for $400. I would grab one and enjoy it. Don't get caught up in all of the new phone craze.


The S9 would serve you remarkably. I wouldn't have a second thought about buying one today. Hell, I've even considered it myself.


What do you think? Is the Galaxy S9 worth buying in 2019?
