    Re: New Samsung Galaxy S9 on the way

    Chris.......Just finished downloading 90 albums to the external 128 GB micro SD card in the Samsung Galaxy S9. It was easy as pie by opening the SD card via a USB connection between the S9 and my desktop computer. I created a Music folder on the SD card, then simply performed a copy and paste of the albums on my desktop hard drive to the micro SD card in the phone. All music files are FLAC at 16/44.1 with the exception of ten 24/96 downloaded albums. The Galaxy S9 has no problem decoding all the files. Playback through the supplied AKG earbuds is surprisingly good, but when I plugged my Shure earbuds into the phone the performance and dynamics opened very nicely. I never had music files downloaded on any of my previous smartphones, mostly because I get my music at home. I have to admit the playback sound quality of standard 16/44.1 files and 24/96 high-res files sound stunning, especially with the Shure earbuds. I am impressed. This feature may have me enjoying more music on the go than in the past. The Galaxy S9 is a remarkable smartphone.

    Super cool Dan.

    * I hope you don't mind that I hit the "Like" button couple times; usually I don't use that feature, but for AudioShark I make an exception.
    It's good to be flexible and diversified in life, it's very good.

    The older we get the more expanded our vision gets.
    And more expansion means more wisdom from various opinions.

    It's a beautiful blue planet we live on, and with a Galaxy S9 the better. ...Because pictures and music matter.

    Re: New Samsung Galaxy S9 on the way

    Dan, you probably saw the new Samsung folding Infinity Flex Display Android phone's announcement earlier today?

    https://www.cnet.com/news/samsungs-f...ty-flex-specs/

    It becomes a tablet when fully opened.

    "The phone, which is currently nameless, is essentially a clamshell device. There is a regular display on the front for standard smartphone use when the device is closed.

    The magic happens when you open — or unfold — the device. The interior opens like a book to provide one seamless 7.3 inch screen, transforming the phone into a tablet."

    Re: New Samsung Galaxy S9 on the way

    Very true. Don't question that at all. I just threw out what I need. Most of my friends are as simple, but might have their kitch desire. Hence they throw the kitchen sink at it to capture everyone. Something I didn't mention but is very important to me is stability. Stability in the sense that opening the phone with a finger ID should consistently work. I work in the field and I'm very active Outdoors. When my hands are wet the fingerprint ID quits working. It also quit after a week or so of work as my hands get roughed up on the job site. It's bothersome for me to have to redo the fingerprint once every week or two. I also want it to dictate well. It bothered me with the iPhone that your verbage has to go to the cloud then bounce back and put on the phone. In a sence it's another way to capture every single word you say and them use it for their purposes.
    I will use this Active S7 till I kill it. I'm on my 3 screen protector. Did you know you can get 3 packs of protectors for $5 online.

    Re: New Samsung Galaxy S9 on the way

    Rex.......I can blame you for planning to keep the S7 Active. It is a damn good smartphone. I carried the S& for over two and a half tears without a single hiccup. If it still serves your purpose and you have no desire to latch on to the latest and greatest, then there is zero reason to let a perfectly good phone go.

    I can say this much. I am loving my new Samsung Galaxy S9 smartphone. I carried it all day today, surfed the web, then downloaded two 4K video files via WiFi from my new Blackvue DR900S-2CH dash camera to the S9. Man do those video files look sharp on the S9's WQHD OLED screen. Zooming in still keeps everything razor sharp at that resolution. I made and received a half dozen calls today. This phone is a joy to use. 4G Internet speed is fabulous, plus I am getting better signal strength with the S9 in rural north Florida than I did with the Galaxy S7, so that is keeping me happy, too.

    Bob.......Thanks for the CNET link. I missed seeing the reveal. I had to get hay and feed for the horse today and run a few other errands so I was away from my computer most of the day. I did carry my new Galaxy S9 with me. That was fun.

    Dan, it's good that you carry your Galaxy with you @ all times; you never know when an emergency ...
