I love the product! It's been a few weeks and I am in love with my phone!!I was able to use my cricket service sim card on this device and worked instantly!
I knew I was in for a surprise when, just free floating around in the Amazon shipping box, there was an unmarked, unlabeled universal DC plug adapter for North American/Japanese prongs, in addition to the product.The phone's retail packaging was shrink-wrapped and sealed. 90% of the packaging and literature was in Russian, aside from some warranty info. It came with a Russian USB wall charger, so thankfully they were nice enough to include that adapter.As I stated before, my phone was shipped factory new, sealed in-box. Booting up the phone, I found it was in Russian, but could easily change it to US English and works beautifully.
After I got this phone set up into my network service, it started shutting off on its own when there was not a significant amount of power being fed to its display screen (EX every time I would lock the phone, it would shut down). I could keep the phone from shutting down if it was playing audio the entire time with at least the volume on 1/15. The fingerprint scanner stopped working for me within a couple of days. I returned that phone, got a replacement from the same seller, and figured it was just the specific phone I got. Luck of the draw.However, after I got the next one. I started having the exact same problems.
I bought two phones gold for the past year and both have failed me completely. Some of these may be modified and may have a IMEI from another phone, making it work.I use Samsung Health and Secret Folder. If these do not work for you when buying these phones then it is a MEGA sign that it is not a legal phone. Even if a phone did not have a warranty in the US. These applications must work to signify a fully working phone. It is not fair for people to have to buy a phone that seems to be working fine, but if one day they want to use these apps they cannot. Not only that but since these IMEI are modified and the whole firmware is modified, Samsung cannot understand why the firmware is Official, and Knox shows as not tripped. But it is! Becareful when buying this S9. I did not have any problems with S10 as of yet other than camera quality.
