When asked to pick between the two new Samsung flagships – the Galaxy S9 and Galaxy S9+ – you, our readers, didn’t hesitate to go with the Plus model.

The Galaxy S9 and S9+ are now out, and to celebrate its launch, Samsung is blowing it out big time. When you purchase an S9 or S9+, you can get The Samsung Ultimate Bundle, which consists of Samsung Gear IconX Wireless Headphones, Gear VR, and a Wireless Charger for $ 99, nearly a $ 400 value. Samsung is also offering more than $ 100 off on a power bundle. Outside of the Samsung’s deals, Verizon is doing a buy one get one free deal on S9 phones and S9s are 50 percent off at AT&T. These come with more strings than Samsung’s deal, but they’re still great deals.
Samsung may be leading the day in terms of discount news, but Microsoft and Pioneer are also bringing a lot of deals this week. Surface Pro i5 models are still $ 150, putting the 128GB…
Many people swear by the Exynos versions of Samsung’s Galaxy flagships, as performance is often better and there’s more development. Others require a phone with the ability to use two SIM cards at once. If you belong to either (or both) of those parties, you may want to have a look at these deals for the dual-SIM Galaxy S9 and Galaxy S9+ on eBay.
Unlike American models of the Galaxy S9, international versions use the Exynos 9810.
