    I bought this a while ago the product is amazing however i suggest you do not buy a glass cover for the screen as it dulls the touch sensitivity on the side of the screen. Read more

    I bought this about two months ago, everything is great! The fingerprint reader at the back is awesome, but it only works about just over half of the time, same with the face ID. The Face ID doesn't really work well, it rarely recognises me. it comes with a case and an earphone which is great. Read more

    There was no need for me to purchase a Galaxy S 9. This phone has all the features I'll ever need for half the price. Great value phone. Read more
