The Samsung Galaxy S9 and S9+ release today in Australia and they look pretty spectacular. You wouldn't want to get a little scratch on them would you? What about a tiny little dent in a corner?
Grubby fingers all over that AMOLED screen? No, no, no. You need to protect that thing. Here's some of the best cases for Samsung's latest.
The Samsung Galaxy S9 has landed in Australia and while cosmetically, it doesn't change the formula too much, under the hood it's got a lot going on and puts itself high on the list of Android devices that you should be looking at.
But is it worth your time? Let's find out.
Signing up for a Samsung Galaxy S9 plan will save you money in the short term - but you could end up paying much more over the life of the phone. When a huge new flagship comes out, we love to compare the prepaid and post-paid plans on offer to get you the best possible price. Here's our guide for the Samsung Galaxy S9.
Apps such as Twitter and Instagram allow you to be signed into two accounts at once, but if you want to use two different messaging clients on the same device you're often out of luck. In the case of things such as Facebook Messenger, Skype and WhatsApp, you have to sign out of one account in order to use another.
Samsung is touting the Galaxy S9 smartphone as a major reinvention. Mind you, it said the same thing about the Galaxy S8 and the Galaxy S7 before that. That's a suspicious amount of reinventing going on, major or otherwise.
So just how different is Samsung's current flagship compared to its predecessor? Is it worth the upgrade? Here are the specifications so you can judge for yourself.
The Samsung Galaxy S9 is expected to officially debut at Mobile World Congress (MWC) on February 26. If past Galaxy announcements are anything to go by, it will start to appear in stores a few weeks later - sometime in mid-March.

Last year, one of the best Samsung Galaxy S8 pre-order deals came from an unlikely source: Woolworths Mobile. The company best known for cheap groceries and $2 milk managed to beat every Australian telco on price and data. Now it's looking to do it again with the Galaxy S9.
Samsung's latest smartphone hits the streets in a couple of weeks, and the telco websites have today lit up with pre-order offers. In fact, surprisingly generous offers in some cases. The telcos usually work hard to score new business around the time of a big new phone launch, but this time we're seeing a few new ideas.
If after seeing the new Galaxy S9 you've decided you need one of the phones in your life, there are plenty of ways you can use your Galaxy S8, or S7, or iPhone as a way to raise some cash to buy one.
This morning, Samsung revealed pricing details for its Galaxy S9 smartphone series. Despite rumours of a hefty markup, the 64GB model will cost $1199 in Australia. That's the same exact price as last year's Galaxy S8. As a result, the iPhone X's $1500+ price tag is looking more absurd than ever.
