To calculate the overall star rating and percentage breakdown by star, we don’t use a simple average. Instead, our system considers things like how recent a review is and if the reviewer bought the item on Amazon. It also analyzes reviews to verify trustworthiness.
This seems like a great, 5-start phone, but it wasn't the particular Galaxy S9 that was advertised.
I purchased this, and I didn't get an international version with the Samsung Exynos 9810 SOC (with the ARM Mali G72 GPU), which is what the description says. This contains the Qualcomm Snapdragon 845 SOC, just like the US version. In doing further research, this SM-9600 is "an international version," just not "the international version with the Samsung Exynos 9810 SOC, with the Arm Mali G72 GPU" (i.e. it's not what fully what it was advertised as). According to TechWalls, this model is for China. However, when the one that I got first-boots, it appears to be configured for US Spanish.
BTW, I never used it as a phone (i.e. I didn't plug in a SIM), but I did use it with WiFi. It seems like a great, 5-start phone. I just needed the version with the Mali G72 GPU.
We received the phone just with a charger and its cable - nothing else! Then when we tried to charge the phone, it was not charging!! Instead it kept vibrating non-stop without any indications on the screen!! We thought that the phone would explode!!! To top it off, upon return it, we had to pay for its shipment!! For a mistake the seller made!! THIS IS A SCAM!!! I don't recommend this Galaxy S9 from this seller!!!
Amazon should at least put a DISCLAIMER, if returning item, the customer will pay!!
Do not purchase this phone its a fraud and totally non functioning phone. The phone came with scratches and the battery life is crap. Why are we being sold dead useless phones. Very upsetting to have to pay for a product that does not function as required and is in bad shape.
I brought this product from Breed used. The sim tray was damaged and there were scratches along the sides and top of the phone. However, the screen and camera were fine and the back was mostly undamaged. The delivery time was slow and it came in a strange box, but it came working smoothly and came network unlocked, which is what matters the most to me.
