    I’m wondering what the Jump On Demand prices will be for the Galaxy S9 and S9+ at launch?

    I’ve been with T-Mobile long enough to not have to deal with a Jump On Demand down payment anymore but I want the Galaxy S9+ and I think its going to come in at over $1000…yikes!

    • Andrew Singleton

      usually with galaxies the smaller one is 0-down but you’re right, the larger could be steep

      • dcmanryan

        With the plus having more ram it might be worth getting it. I’m seriously thinking going the One Plus route once I’m done with my Z2 Force. There’s absolutely ZERO chance I’ll ever pay over $1k for a phone, so ridiculous.

      • ConceptVBS

        The price difference will only be around $100. I’d go for the Plus.
        Unlike the S8 and S8 Plus, now there is more differentiation between the regular and the plus: Ram, extra telephoto camera and also screen size. Before it was just screen size.

  • TheRealKingSen

    Locked bootloader, no thanks

  • pda96

    Stereo speakers??? It’s about time!! Make sure there’s a headphone jack, and sign me up.

    • ConceptVBS

      There is. It’s confirmed.

  • kev2684

    Lilac Purple better be available on T-Mo at launch.

    • Bklynman

      Don’t get your hopes too hign,V30 comes in 6 different colors and Tmobile only sell the silver one.

      • Trevnerdio

        I thought they sold black as well, no? They didn’t give me an option for the piece of garbage though when I “upgraded”

        • Bklynman

          My bad,thought they only sold the silver one,unless you are thinking of the plus.

        • Trevnerdio

          Definitely could be! I have no idea haha

  • AA-Ron

    Most likely will stick with the note 8 and wait for the 9. Hell the way this beast phone is going, i might wait for the Note X. Those specs do look pretty solid. Ibwould like to check out the real world camera results. If they are the best ever I might jump

  • Reagan1

    For the band 71 support alone, I’ll probably upgrade from my S7. Could use the better coverage. Titanium looks pretty cool, as well. We’ll see after next Sunday.

  • Philip

    I hope for a B1G1 deal from Samsung. They did on the S8 right?

  • Boris Govnic

    I am dishearted by this incremental upgrade, it should have had dual cameras on the regular model. The curved screen has been really bothersome for me as an S8 owner, finding tempered glass screen protector has been a nightmare and I have come very close with a case to damaging my phone…..Sigh….The good is the performance.

    During my research I discovered that LG made a plus model of the G6 called the G6+ it has 128 gb of memory and is waterproof; the phone they should have released, still has the old processor but I have come to the point where I realized I do not play games on my phone, youtube, email, whatsapp, screenshotting, web browsing.

    If I do buy the G6 plus it would be my first non-t mobile device.
    As an S8 owner I wanted the flat edge like the S7 and the S8 Active was too big.
    They really are running out of ideas to set these phone apart. I miss the stainless steel days of old phone, buttons….etc. Just Slab & Glass that costs $300 to fix SMH

    The upcoming LG model I read preliminary specs today heads into Note/V30 territory and these phones are just too big for one handed use.

    • Philip

      The curved screen didnt bother me. Sorta like it as it feel 3D.

      • Boris Govnic

        For my purposes it’s really limited my protection options. I used to like OtterBox commuter cases and then I would put a glass tempered glass screen protector on it to protect the phone. The problem with current tempered glass screen protectors for the curved Edge is they don’t have an adhesive that is 100% on the screen like the flat screens. They only have The Edge which is the outer edge which makes the protector eventually fall off and allows for dust to get underneath the screen protectors. Why this is a concern and why it’s important because his phone cost $300 to fix if you shatter the screen. I’ve had far too many close calls for comfort. Just type in tempered glass protector for the S8 on Amazon you’ll see the reviews for every single one of them are three stars two stars or less for exactly the reasons I pointed out they just don’t last. It’s almost as if this phone was designed to be broken so you would either have to get insurance or you would have to pay outrageous repair fees

        • Jason

          I would say just give up the search for a screen protector. Some people think they have to have them and its some essential, but phones these days are basically disposable after a year or 2. No reason to worry and just use it somewhat responsibly. Ive never used a screen protector and never broken a screen and Ive had a lot of phones

        • Boris Govnic

          To each his own; I am a responsible user, but slip ups do happen. I will likely end up with that g6+ when the price drops below 300 and then wait and see what the next iteration of devices will be. Thanks for your input, but I am not thrilled with the curvature and will have to explore different options in the future.

        • Philip

          Yep. Screen protector is not needed these days. The gorilla screen do a good job. I do use a good case.

  • Bklynman

    With 9 coming out I wonder how much price drop will the 8 go? No word about Active 9. Still thinking about Lg Bogo sale,the mini projector deal is over on the 2/22,in case anyone thinks it is along term promotion.

    • Francisco Peña

      I’m done with LG…. Had 2 G4s bootloop, and my G6 randomly reboots. Not stuck in bootloop, but just reboots. I’m done.

      • Mike Thaler

        Hmm. My G4 bootloops at about 14 months. LG fixed it in about 8 days. Got an LG 6 11 months ago. So far so good. If all goes well, should be good for another year or 2.
        Would only get new phone that covers all of TM’s planned freq. usage.

    • Mike

      Of course their hasn’t been any word about the Active 9 duh

  • I got the S8 because of all the new bands and technologies it supported but after using it I went back to my iPhone. I realized that as cool as all those features all are, they don’t matter as much to me as stability and usability. Love my iPhone X, but if I was going to go Android it’d be Pixel 2 NOT Samsung.

  • watkins

    With these small incremental upgrades I’ll be sticking with the v30+ until Samsung launches that rumored galaxy x device.

    • Andrew Singleton

      excellent device

  • Bklynman

    I think i read on Tom Guide (maybe Android Police) the price was release EU market,it was well over $1000.00 for both phones but in euros,according to what I read both phone will break the $1000.00 in US dollars,will see what kind of price drop 8’s will have.

  • Philip

    I didnt see the two front speakers.
