Samsung Galaxy S9+ price in India to review check out this toughest Android flagship to beat in 2018

It's all too easy to hate on FM radio. Well, besides being free and using none of your data plan, you can also learn about local artists who might find otherwise themselves lost in the crowd of online options. Ultimately, it's a feature we'd rather have on our phone than not.

The NextRadio app is used by many manufacturers to facilitate FM use on many smartphones, including the S9 and S9+.

While Samsung kept its promise for the carrier variants of the recently launched Galaxy S9 and Galaxy S9+ sold in the USA, it appears the unlocked Galaxy S9 and S9+ models don't have their FM chips activated yet.

Samsung mistakenly did not add the NAB FM API to the unlocked devices. The carrier locked versions of the phones in the United States do have a functional FM radio, but the unlocked version (which is the one you should be buying if you're paying attention) somehow managed to ship without it enabled. Our team confirmed this with them a couple of days after release upon receiving reports the app did not work.

Many would have expected the FM radio feature to be usable in the unlocked variants as well given that it works just fine on the carrier-branded variants. Samsung has said it will be in the first update they do, but have not yet settled on a date. The model numbers that now do not work for FM are SM-G960UI and SM-G965UI.
