Here is the list of some serious Galaxy S9 issues and problems

Samsung Galaxy S9/S9+ have been out for nearly a couple of weeks now. Several issues have been reported already, and the company has acted quickly in some of them. The reason these problems made it to headlines was primarily because a lot of users are/were affected.

However, we stumbled upon some complaints that are quite serious, but couldn’t get much attention as these were isolated cases. So here, in this story, we will highlight all the independent/isolated Galaxy S9 problems we’ve encountered so far.

1. Green screen – phone as good as dead

This Long/ Short Equity Firm Sees A Time-Arbitrage Opportunity In This Pest Control Merger

PestYost Partners was up 0.8% for the first quarter, while the Yost Focused Long Funds lost 5% net. The firm's benchmark, the MSCI World Index, declined by 5.2%. The funds' returns outperformed their benchmark due to their tilt toward value, high exposures to energy and financials and a bias toward quality. In his first-quarter letter Read More

Yes, somebody’s Galaxy S9 is now as good as dead, and that too without the user doing anything crazy with their unit. Here’s how they explain their case:

2. Left half of screen goes purple

Yes, that’s what happened with another Galaxy S9 user. They were just watching a YouTube video, when this happened:

3. Camera going bonkers in super slow-mo mode

A user’s Galaxy S9 camera went so glitchy in the new Super slow-mo mode, that it …. see for yourself what it did:

4. Camera showing matrix style white dots

Yes, another weird issue.

See how the complainant explains it:

I just bought the S9 plus and when using either camera, it has a matrix style white dots running across the front. The dots are there on both videos and pictures. The dots are there regardless of HDR on or off. Resetting camera setting made no difference. Factory resetting the phone made no difference. The dots are present if the camera is in auto, live focus, pro and hyperlapse mode, but not in food mode or panorama mode

5. The pink lines problem

S9+ Pink Line Issue from r/GalaxyS9

Yep, this isn’t new – happened with Galaxy S7 and some S8s as well. But what’s baffling is why the same problem is present in Galaxy S9s? Is it so hard for a company like Samsung to completely remove this issue?

What do you think about these? Do you know about more such problems? Let us know in comments below.

  1. I AM SOO MAD GOD >~< I PAID FOR THIS STUFF AND IT WAS BLOODY EXPENSIVE. I have the pink line issue and mind you this is my first samsung phone. Not a great first impression for samsung. Seriously, I've now researched articles showing this has happened in the past and they still have problems with it. I can only hope the other issues like slow-mo pixels or black and white dots dont appear.

  2. I have the white dots when I take pictures and video, too, but not all the time. I also notice that pictures are sharp when focusing, but the second the pictures takes it adds a soft focus to the picture. For$900, this phone is unacceptable. I have had it two weeks and I would gladly go back to my Note 5…a phone that was almost three years old and no issues to speak of.
