Wondering whether to pick up the Samsung Galaxy S9 and Galaxy S9 Edge on day one, or wait a bit longer for the right time to buy? We’re considering everything that consumers want to know which includes price, availability, software, hardware, and much more
This article lists four reasons why waiting a little longer might actually be beneficial.
Why we should Buy Samsung Galaxy s9
Software Problems will be Resolved
When new smartphones are released, there are occasionally software issues that manage to get past the software testers. These issues could be minor, but they could be serious enough to cause battery drain, performance issues or even issues that cause the smartphone to crash and shut down.
By waiting 6 months you can ensure any issues noticed by the average consumer will be fixed by Samsung in a software update. Unfortunately it takes some time for software patches to roll out on Android so it can often be worth the wait.
No Potential Hardware Issues
With the explosion threat of the Galaxy Note 7, there is certainly reason to be cautious about buying a new smartphone. Whilst it’s unlikely Samsung will ever let such a huge issue get past their testing again, it’s often good to wait 3-6 months after a new hardware release to make sure there aren’t any underlying hardware problems.
This rule doesn’t only apply to smartphones – it can be useful for laptops, audio equipment, TVs and game consoles.
After the 3-6 month period is up you can research the internet to see whether there are any underlying problems before buying.
There’s no denying that the price of the Galaxy S9 is going to be steep. However, if you wait 6 months to a year you may be able to find a discounted buy it now price or a discount on your monthly contract price.
No Worries About Availability
Whilst unlikely, Samsung may have issues with providing stock to all regions on launch day. If you need a new phone, you may not want to bank on the idea that Samsung will be able to provide enough stock for your network or local area.
With these four reasons in mind, you can see why waiting for a new release can sometimes be the best option.
