Nah I'm over Samsung. Too bloated with garbage and that bixby button is dreadful and not remappable yet again from what I hear.

Bixby button is remappable to other functions. Samsung pushed out an update last year to be able to turn it off on all devices

Turning it off isn't the same as being able to launch the camera etc. Can you now do that?

Yes, it's remapabble. And the camera shortcut is already mapped to Power button double-tap.
The in-screen finger print is brilliant on top of face detect.
I'm excited, should be here by March 8. Samsung is throwing in wireless ear buds.

Reverse charge is cool, you can charge other devices including wireless ear buds, smart watches, other phones.

I am less than happy with the on screen burn-in on my Note8 (you can clearly see the keyboard on a white background). I'll be looking elsewhere in the future

Similar thing happened to my Galaxy from the weather widget on the home screen. As Eric mentioned, the bloat also annoyed me - the phone came with so much crap pre-installed that was a pain to remove. Using a Google Pixel now and am very pleased.

the idea of reverse charge is a gimmick....i can never see a situation where a person would willfully sacrifice what precious battery they have to charge someone elses phone....I will say that IM happy to see samsung starting to loosen up on a few items to allow people to customize their OS skin. TouchWiz sort of ruined me forever....looks like their new One skin is far better.

I like it. Apparently the new update that comes with it is a massive upgrade in ease of use. I guess the S9 got the same update. My wife has an S9 and so far she doesn’t like the change.

Well, it's convenient to recharge dead wireless headphones. By the way they're great looking can't wait to get mine. All in-ear unlike apple that looks like regular headphones with sticks coming out of ears and someone just cut the wires.
Also sometimes you need to help someone out with some juice. For instance on one of our trips to Europe my girl's phone died because she used it a lot. She had to call her dad so he can pick us up at the airport at the right terminal. Well her phone was dead and she didn't remember the number by heart. I didn't have the number. Outlets are different over there, so we ran around looking for USB charge station to get some juice to charge her phone up so she could call her dad. Of course most of them were occupied. Anyway would be nice to let her charge up her phone a little. Especially with 10+ the battery is 4100mah
