Samsung Galaxy S9 and Galaxy S9 Plus smartphone users having updated to the Google Android 9.0 (Pie) through the recent software update; a community of these users have now reported that their handsets functioned not as expected after updating to the newer firmware.
Various Galaxy S9 users have taken to Reddit to state that upon updating to the newer Android Pie firmware, the battery drained rapidly and not as expected. A cross-section of the Galaxy S9 community have also expressed disappointment over the fact that they could observe very quick battery drain even during general usage. Also, a SamMobile report adds substance to the user reports about these potential ‘issue’.
Hence, you could share thoughts and insights on the above issue; in case you updated to the newer Android Pie firmware recently. At this instant, Samsung is yet to widely rollout the Android Pie to Galaxy S9 users (spread out across continents and countries). It is also not known if the issue has hit the wider community of Galaxy S9 users having updated to Android Pie of late; these users are among the early adapters of Android Pie for the Samsung Galaxy S9.
At this juncture, you could also share thoughts in case you are a Samsung Galaxy S9 Plus user having upgraded to Android Pie OS update. Here, it is not known if the speculated battery drain issue has hit Galaxy S9 Plus users as well post updating to new firmware.
In related developments, a new Samsung Galaxy series which is hugely rumoured to have the Galaxy M moniker could be made official in India during the early part of 2019. These handsets are also speculated to be “standouts” with respect to functionality offered. Samsung loyalists, here, have started voicing expectations about the Galaxy M series of smartphones falling into the value-for-money category; more than being flagships.
