Personally I'm willing to pay a bit extra and import it (with the Exynos chip) but the $1100-$150 = $950 + tax for the S9+ seems quite tempting...
Other than clove.co.uk where else can you order it? Seems it also needs to be "unlocked" by using it with a local sim?

What benefit does the Exynos chip provide?

So the pricing doesn't seem too bad on this thing, especially with the $150 trade-in offer.

Secondly, we've seen the 845 GPU performance (looks good), but I don't think anyone's leaked Exynos 9810 GPU performance yet?
Finally, someone (Anandtech) have some 9810 GPU performance results, https://www.anandtech.com/show/12478/ex ... st-results

So CPU (single thread): 9810 > 845; but GPU: 845 > 9810
Amerifriend threads need to include instructions on how to acquire an amerifriend. :confused:

Nowhere yet, but usually Amazon has them available eventually (via Swiftronics), eGlobalCentral, eBay, etc.

Hola
I will say that if B&H Photo carries the unlocked Exynos version it will probably be the best place to order from. If I am not mistaken they may even allow Squaretrade insurance plans on it. They are very reputable and ship to Canada while handling all local Canadian taxes.

Anyone seen a good comparison of the camera performance of the S9 vs. the Pixel 2?

Debating these two phones for my wife whose iphone6 has reached its end.

Samsung Galaxy W - $150
HTC One M7 - $155
LG G4 (Broken Camera Glass) - $150
HTC One S - $150

I'm planning on ordering from Rogers through my work plan. My contract is up this month so I'm free and clear.

Still don't have a 2-year contract price for my plan though.

Are these going to come unlocked this time? Anyone know?

@kool1 Either way you can call your carrier to get it unlocked.
