    I've thought about this phone for a while, but I think I'll procrastinate even longer and wait for the S10 with 5G. My S6 is still working fine anyway.

    Don't let me down S10 or I'll rage quit Samsung for good (empty threat, probably...)

    late to the party here, but have been given a brand new S9 to use

    what are the must have apps?

    what do i need to know?

    what cool things can i do?

    is there any way to show BT battery status at the top of the screen, without using an additional app? my "old" LG G6 did this and it was awesome

    Pretty sure the initial release of the S10 wont have 5G, or it will be in the top tier model and be pretty expensive due to new tech/multiple antennas with limited release

    I hope im wrong, every Telstra tower now near me has had a 5G antenna recently installed

    Anyone downgraded from Pi back to marshmallow?

    I want call recording back and am hoping to find an easy way to do this without wasting a weekend hacking or rooting this phone.

    Is that the issue where you only get one side recorded now? I had a couple of those apps and don't remember at which point all of a sudden it was just my side being recorded.

    I want to get this sorted in the next few days as I have some very recordable phone calls coming up. Can anyone suggest software that works?

    Also has anyone had issues with Google assistant not being able to set reminders since Pi? It gets stuck in an infinite loop every time now.

    Why do they call this an upgrade?

    if you want those recordings to use against someone in court etc. don't you have to tell the other party they're being recorded?

    not in victoria. there is a residual and still open question as to whether call recording apps also infringe the commonwealth telecommunications (interception and access) act.

    i got my pie update with One UI yesterday - it is fantastic, definitely makes me want an S10 as my personal phone now!

    New version of Pie is hugely different in terms of large GUI changes. Large changes to default sounds also.

    Thought it was a bit laggy at first but nope, it's all settled down nicely now.

    Ok noticing a couple of issues with the Pie upgrade......I have a bunch of email address in my email client, and I've set it to "All Accounts" in the viewing window.....but sometimes when I open the client it goes to one single email box and I have to swap back to "All Accounts" again. Little annoying.

    Anyone else having this issue?

    There was one other dodgy behavior thing also, when I come across it I'll edit this post.

    What's the go with not being able to disable the shutter sound?

    How lame to have such a functional camera not have such a basic feature.

    Should I just use a different camera app? Bit retarded if I can't access the cameras features like slow mo etc

    Even when you disable shuttle sounds in FV5 it still beeps! Ugh what gives?

    Security feature?

    Can you confirm that this has been disabled in the latest update? I haven't heard anything about this and nothing on google. Haven't looked at the phone yet.

    Yeah that's what I thought it was for, security, but also thought you could disable it previously, no?
