Overall, seems the best all-round Android phone available. Battery seems to be just okay which is surprising considering how well the V30 manages with a 3300mah battery.

I have the s9, my wife has the Pixel 2 XL, the s9 is a beautiful looking phone, i love how it's more narrow and slender, it makes the Pixel 2 XL, even the iPhone X look chubby. The fingerprint sensor in the back is perfect, and for those times that I can't hit the sensor easily, i'll do the intelligent scan unlock. Samsung Pay is better than Google Pay, on yea, and SD card (or dual sim), headphone jack. I actually LOVE the bixby button because I've remapped it to google assistant using Button Mapper. One press is Google assistant, two presses is a shortcut to a whatsapp chat with my wife, and long press is a volume/silence toggle. PERFECT.

I traded my Iphone X for S9+, so far it has been amazing for me. It is the perfect phone on the market now. It offers many options and packed all the features, the important thing is it also look good. Headphone jack, fingerprint unlock face unlock , iris unlock and SD card slot. Small bezel and good design. I actually like the samsung launcher a lot too.

No regrets; the S9 is just sooo much nicer feeling in the hand, screens are not even comparable, speakers are much better (I was disappointed with the Pixel speakers, especially considering their size), and having the headphone jack is critical for me. I also like wireless charging.
