The Samsung Galaxy S9 runs Android 10 and has zero incompatibilities with popular apps like Facebook or YouTube, something many iPhone users have complained about with slightly older devices. Security updates are still available until March 2022, and battery replacements if needed, are very affordable.
Our Samsung Galaxy S9 devices are pre-owned with minimal signs of use, fully tested for all functions, and come with a 1-year warranty and lifetime IMEI guarantee.
Android 8.0 Upgradeable to Android 10.0
Sharp and crisp screen
View everything comfortably on the sizeable 5.8 inches Super AMOLED HD 1440p with minimal bezel display. A bright and crisp display for every situation. Max protection thanks to the newest Gorilla Glass 5, crack-free display.
Amazing Front + Rear Camera
Outstanding smart crisp 12MP rear camera up to 4K and slow motion recording up to 960fps, and user-friendly and smooth selfies thanks to the 8MP HD front camera. While there isn't a dual or rear camera setup, the trade-offs you're getting in other areas may be worth it if the camera quality isn't at the top of your list of requirements.
Powerful CPU + More RAM
Galaxy S9 devices are equipped with the octa-core CPU Exynos 9810 and high-end Mali GPU for the best performance and speed. If you need to multi-task and spend less than $300 on an Android smartphone, this is one of the best choices you can make.
How Much Is A Samsung S9 Worth?
The S9 is in a peculiar position with the increased affordability of a used Samsung S10 device becoming more popular. A secondary issue to consider is that fixing a screen on the phone is almost the same price as buying a certified preowned device outright. Hence if you've got a damaged or broken Galaxy S9, the phone is essentially worth very little. Our retail storefronts still do take broken phones in for credit towards another repair, service, or accessory and can assist in getting data off the device if that's of concern to you.
Samsung Galaxy S9 - Still A Great Value in 2022
For a sub-$300 price point, you get a 5.8" Super AMOLED display, 12MP main camera, and 4GB of RAM, which is arguably better than other Apple devices released the same year which maintains a higher price point like the cheap iPhone XS Max we also have in stock.
The device also provides a better pound-by-pound value compared to a brand new Samsung A Series device, which at the same price point provides IPS LCD screens and less RAM and overall CPU speed.
If you're looking to repair your Samsung Galaxy S9 we also offer screen, battery, charge port, and diagnostic services if you're not sure whats wrong with your device, or it's not clear
