It’s getting easier and easier to stick with last year’s model than upgrading to the latest one.
New smartphones are only getting incremental updates over their predecessors these days, and that’s the case with the Galaxy S8 and Galaxy S9.
That’s not to say the Galaxy S9 isn’t a superb smartphone. It’s absolutely one of the best smartphones you can buy at the moment. But if you have a Galaxy S8, you have one of the best smartphones of 2017. And the features and power that makes the Galaxy S8 one of the best phones of 2017 go a long way.
Check out why you don’t need to upgrade to the Galaxy S9 if you already own the Galaxy S8:
The Galaxy S9 has the latest Snapdragon 845 processor compared with the Snapdragon 835 in the Galaxy S8, but you’d be hard pressed to feel a significant difference in speed between the two. You might start feeling the Galaxy S8’s Snapdragon 835 slowing down after a year when the Galaxy S10 – or whatever it’ll be called – is announced.
The Galaxy S8 is currently still running on Android 7.0, and Samsung is in the process of rolling out an update to Android 8.0. The Galaxy S9 is already running Android 8.0, but you won’t really see or feel much of a difference between the two.
• You zoom a lot when taking photos.
• You can’t stand the fingerprint sensor on the Galaxy S8.
• You want to use facial recognition but it’s so bad on the Galaxy S8.
• You want to use iris recognition but it’s also bad on the Galaxy S8.
