What was your last purchase

@RevolvingPrawn Holy crap dude, the Samsung S9 Plus is insane! The screen is unreal, I love that when I get a notification the curved edges of my screen go red. The animated emoji are hilarious, this is me apparently

Yup, same screen on my S8 Plus ;) The detail and sharpness of it is really something else right? And yep, the Edge lighting looks really cool. Did you set yours to red? I've got mine set so that it takes the colour from whatever app is notifying.

Thought you didn't care about the animated emoji's ;)

I know it is, but yeah it's amazing. The HDR is decent as well when watching HDR videos, not on the same level as my TV, but for a phone it's great.

I don't care about them, just thought I'd try it out :)

After my mum looked at my phone she is now upgrading to a S9 from a iPhone 6. She didn't get the Plus model though, but the 9 still has a much bigger screen than the iPhone 6.

Yep I set the screen edge notification to red, I also bought a red & black theme lol.

So because I don't know a damn thing about HDR really, does a video have to have the ability to be HDR, or is it just something the screen does for any video? And if the video needs to have it, is there stuff on Netflix and Prime video with it?

I actually was gonna go for the standard S8 originally cos I figured it was a big jump in screen size from my XZ. It wasn't until I went in to Carphone Warehouse and actually held both that I knew it had to be the Plus :p But it doesn't feel massive, does it? It's kinda the right size, not too big and not too small.

Haha, figures you'd go for red and black. I'm sticking with stock for now and satisfying myself by changing wallpaper now and then.

Yes video needs to support it as well as the screen. It's something devs or movies need to add, as its not just a hardware thing. Both those do with certain content, but Netflix you have to pay for the 4k sub I think although I'm not totally sure. The Grand Tour supports it.

It doesn't feel big at all, although the screen itself is huge.
