Get Up to Speed with what's happening Inside Verizon.

First, we talk about the new Samsung Galaxy S9 release; some of its features include 4K slow-mo and Augmented Reality. Second, we showcase our latest Best for a Good Reason video. Jim Johnson shows how we boosted service in a desert to keep customers connected during the annual Bakers to Vegas race. Next, we discuss our new podcast that was released this week featuring Rima Quershi; highlight Brit Morin founder of Lifestyle Company Brit + Co., and give an update from WiTNY — which stands for Women in Technology and Entrepreneurship in New York.

The stories.

Samsung S9+ review

You probably don’t need a 4,000-word review to tell you that the Galaxy S9+ is a good phone. Now that everyone’s got all of the Note 7 jokes mostly out of their system, we can mostly agree that Samsung makes good phones. The S8 was great, and the S9 builds on that success in a number of ways.

Our Network story is being told through the lens of our Network Engineers.

Here's the latest chapter of our Network Story: Best for a Good Reason.

Podcast: Powerful Women in Tech: Meet Rima Qureshi
