I needed a cheap new phone, and I was nostalgic for my Samsung 6. I thought this would be an affordable compromise, but it's a frustrating mini-tablet that barely works as a phone. It's so large it falls out of my pockets constantly (memo to women's clothing: stop making pockets that are so useless). If I am using an app with audio, this phone cannot be a phone. So if I'm listening to music and a call comes through, it doesn't show it as ringing for a long time. The screen locks up and by the time it displays a number, it's already going to voicemail.Also, switching from Google Play or Google Podcasts to any other app makes it run incredibly slow. You can close all the apps. Doesn't matter. Only a restart will make the phone usable after listening to some music.Overall, it's a great pocket sized device for checking Facebook and taking photos. The storage is pretty amazing.It just sucks as a phone.
This product is used for everyday use and does a very good job
So far great phone just the battery in 2018 is 3700mah less than 2016 4000mah but its fast charging
I was concerned because I read a lot of bad reviews but the phone is working well and in accordance to the specs.The package and instructions did come in spanish which was odd but the phone works as advertised

4x fun with the world's 1st quad camera
Made so you can do more
Take advantage of the hyper-mobile lifestyle with the colorful Galaxy A9. Capture beautiful photos with the world's first quad camera. Be immersed in the 6.3-inch Infinity Display and Dolby Atmos surround sound. And with a sleek, ergonomic design, your hands stay comfortable as you stay connected.
The world's first quad camera smartphone
Discover four times as many ways to take stunning photos. The Galaxy A9 has four rear cameras to capture nearly any moment. And effortlessly enhance your photos with intelligent features like Scene Optimizer and Flaw Detection.
Gives you a wide-open view
The 8MP Ultra Wide Camera offers a 120º view that captures almost as much as your eyes can see. So what you see is what you'll shoot. And when you want to snap even more of the scene, Ultra Wide Camera makes panorama shots easier, too.
Zooms in on the details
Capture the scene from where you are. The Galaxy A9 has a 10MP Telephoto Camera with 2x optical zoom that shoots beautifully detailed photos even from a distance.
Makes your photos stand out
Bring your friends and family to the forefront of your photos with Live Focus. The 5MP Depth Camera and Main Camera work together to adjust the depth of field, blurring out the background to add a pro-level look to your pictures.
Shoots clear and bright, day or night
The 24MP Main Camera on Galaxy A9 adapts to bright daylight and low light with ease. Take crisp shots in a bright environment without getting washed out. And at night or in the dark, the camera pulls in more light and minimizing noise to keep the details sharp.
Intelligently makes your photos better
Get the right shot right away. Galaxy A9's intelligent camera features Scene Optimizer, which automatically detects the subject of your photo and chooses between nineteen different modes to optimize the picture accordingly.
*19 modes available with Scene Optimizer: Food, Portraits, Flowers, Indoor scenes, Animals, Landscapes, Greenery, Trees, Sky, Mountains, Beaches, Sunrises and sunsets, Watersides, Street scenes, Night scenes, Waterfalls, Snow, Birds, Text.
**Accuracy of Scene Optimizer may differ depending on surrounding conditions or subject.
Alerts you if the picture's not perfect
The rear camera also tells you how to fix your photos. Flaw Detection is like an intelligent photo adviser, catching eye blinks, facial blurs, and backlighting, then notifying you when something's off in your photo. So you can rework and reshoot before the moment's lost.
*Accuracy of Flaw Detection may differ depending on surrounding conditions or subject.
**Flaw detection detects Eye Blink, Facial Blur, and Backlit.
***Blink and blur detection work best when there are three or fewer people in the frame, 1.5 meters or closer to the camera.
****Backlit flaw detection sends notifications every 24 hours when flaws are detected and works when HDR mode is turned off.
Improved to level up your selfie skills
You never know when a selfie moment might happen. Day or night, get crisp and clear selfies on Galaxy A9's 24MP front camera, with innovative low light technology that increases brightness while decreasing noise. And Selfie Focus shines a spotlight on you by blurring out the background.
Add fun to your photos
Turn yourself into an emoji. Add party hats or animal noses to your face. Enhance the colors with a stunning filter. Your imagination can run wild with camera features including stamps, stickers, and even AR Emoji to add an individual touch to your pictures.
The style you'll love to hold
The Galaxy A9 is made to suit your tastes, whether you want to keep it classic with the stylishly glossy Caviar Black or go beyond monochrome with the bold and unique gradient colors of Lemonade Blue or Bubblegum Pink. And it feels as good as it looks with an ergonomic design for a comfortable grip.
Enjoy an expansive, immersive view
Immerse yourself into every scene and photo on the Galaxy A9's striking 6.3-inch Infinity Display. Stretching from edge to edge, the vast screen gives you a stunning viewing experience that lets you see more and do more, whether it's multitasking or streaming videos.
* Screen measured diagonally as a full rectangle without accounting for the rounded corners.
** Infinity Display: a near bezel-less, full-frontal glass, edge-to-edge screen.
Giving you information at a glance
Know what's happening without unlocking your phone. Always On Display lives up to its name, always at the ready with notifications, time, date, and even battery level on your screen.
Made for more efficiency
Streamline the way you multitask. App Pair lets you simultaneously open two apps you often use together. While Snap Window pins an important window to the top of the screen, so you can keep track of a streaming video or chat as you work on other things below.
So you can do more, faster
Connect quickly and seamlessly on the Galaxy A9. Its Octa-Core processor and 6GB or 8GB RAM combination provide performance that keeps you going at high speed whether you're live streaming or multitasking.
Keep more of your memories

Keeping your privacy protected
