Samsung Galaxy S9+ Review: Overrated In Many Ways

Let's see what changes Samsung has made to one of their most important flagship smartphones for 2018.

We earlier discussed some reasons that why we don't recommend people to buy these new flagships at the time of launch and now we know more about the devices as reviews have started coming, hence this is a flawless time to talk negatively. The pre-order system went live on 26 February, a day after the official global launch at MWC 2018.

The Samsung Galaxy S9 and the S9+ have the first cameras in the industry that switch aperture either automatically based on lighting conditions, or manually using the pro mode.

Almost every geometric dimension plus weight has been increased on the Galaxy S9. You can argue whether the ability to turn your phone into a PC is a worthwhile experience, but the fact of the matter is, Samsung is thinking of the phone in ways Apple isn't. You will be able to capture brilliance selfies with 8MP sensor alongside f/1.7 aperture. The Samsung Galaxy S9 + will come with an AKG headphone that looks cheap but is actually way better than most of the stock headphones out there so that is great. I really hope that the Galaxy Xcover 5, if indeed he will receive the specifications of a different kind, more urgent, as its predecessor Galaxy Xcover 4 came out a year ago and also was not very much popular because of weak filling.

Performance-wise the Galaxy S9 should offer a 30% increase in efficiency and 20% in performance. Some new elements introduced in the S9 and its Plus variant can be noticed on the body of the two devices. In USA and China, the phones are equipped with the Qualcomm MSM8998 Snapdragon 845 octa-core processor, which is the newest and most powerful SoC from Qualcomm.

The S9 will feature 4GB of RAM and 64GB of internal storage, while the S9+ gets a beefy 6GB of RAM and 128GB of internal storage. Both phones will have stereo speakers.

The Pixel 2 features the Snapdragon 835, the favourite from a year ago, including 4GB of RAM and a 64GB of internal storage which you can also expand with a microSD. Up front, the device features an 8-megapixel lens with autofocus and Auto HDR. We will continue to monitor the developments and provide you with updates. The Galaxy S9+ features a bigger display and comes with a 6.2-inch Super AMOLED display. However, it has a mechanical aperture like a dedicated DSLR. The wide-angle sensor, which is 12MP comes with dual variable aperture of f/1.5 and f/2.4. Another thing to note here is that S9 can now shoot 720p video at super slow 960 frames per second (for 0.2 seconds) with the help of DRAM in the camera module.

The camera on the Pixel 2 is fantastic, and a big improvement on the already brilliant Pixel.

In comparison. the late-2017 iPhone model got an overall score of 97 points, a point lower than the Google Pixel 2 and two points lower than the S9+.

While Samsung has indeed surpassed the S8's greatness with the S9, just be warned that the front screen and back panel are prone to hairline scratches... But exactly how it will work is unknown.

It has to be said: The Galaxy S9 has retained its headphone jack, making it one of only a few top handsets that still has one. At this time, Sephora products can be tested virtually and then purchased right from the Galaxy S9 Plus where ever you are so there is an element here for the future of businesses.
