Default Thinking about an S8+

My PH1 is on the fritz and I can score a brand new unlocked S8+ for $532 with full warranty.

It's one of the few that I can still use on T-mo > no one else can match what I get for service for the price...

Whatcha think? Worth it?

Cheers guys

How old is the PH1? No way to get it fixed? Sad how short the life spans of some phones are.

The S8+ is a good phone, from what I understand. I've got the S9+ and love it, but I hear it's not a huge improvement over the S8+.

I can yes, I'm just bothered as heck that it's apparently dying on me so quickly. So I'm thinking of using it as an excuse to buy something that's a bit more established and ~$500 isn't that bad.

I'm going to try another reset first and sleep on it for a day or two first...I just don't want to be caught without a phone if it goes belly up.

Any manufacturer can have faulty phones, I'd try to get it replaced under warranty, no one likes to spend $500 when they don't have to. I've had my fair share of **** from Samsung.

edit: Hell, if you're that bothered, get it replaced under warranty then sell the replacement for $300-400.

Too true - been through some Samsungs myself.

I just reset it again and there was an update waiting, 264mb -Android P-PPR1 which I'm hoping might be security and bug fixes. Pie hasn't been good for me lol.

I think your suggestion makes more sense. I'll see if this is still acting up and just use the warranty if it is. Thanks for the feedback

If I was buying a phone that's not an Essential, it'd probably be a Pixel 2. I just don't trust Samsung.
