Samsung Galaxy S9

 

Samsung Galaxy S9 review, price and release date: How does Samsung's latest flagship compare to the competition? Let's find out.

Fantastic display ; Feels great ; Much improved speakers

Average battery life ; Dual-sensor only on Plus model ; Some lag with Samsung’s software

Battery life on the Samsung Galaxy S9 is almost exactly the same as last year’s S8. Even with the switch to a more efficient mobile chip, it’s a shame Samsung hasn’t really been able to squeeze any more juice from the 3000mAh battery.

Galaxy S9 vs. Xperia XZ2 shootout

 

Samsung has the Plus, Sony has the Compact, but the two companies see the base size differently. It's these regular versions that we'll now be taking a closer look at - this is the Galaxy S9 versus Xperia XZ2 camera comparison.

Samsung Galaxy S9 and S9 Plus review: Excellent, not monumental

 

Despite not feeling like a major improvement over last year's flagship, the Galaxy S9 is still one of the best phones around.

Dual Aperture effective in low light ; Excellent cameras overall ; Speedy performance ; Long-lasting battery

Not a major improvement over last generation

Samsung Galaxy S9 review

 

The Galaxy S9 is a perfect-sized phone with a fantastic camera and great performance.

Excellent display ; Great 5.8-inch size ; Good speakers ; Strong performance ; Stunning low-light camera

Battery life is lower than competition ; Slow Android updates ; Camera not as versatile as S9 Plus

The Galaxy S9 is a comfortable and compact phone that offers a fantastic camera and great performance, but is it one of the best smartphones on the market?We do think the S9 Plus is worth it for the second, versatile camera, but the S9’s perfect size...

Samsung S9 review: a refined Android flagship with show-stealing camera

 

Samsung has created the most premium and polished phone of 2018

12MP rear camera with dual-aperture technology ; Still fabulous Super AMOLED 18.5:9 QHD+ screen ; AR Emoji, while not perfect, are lots of fun

Similar specs to the Galaxy S8

Samsung Galaxy S9 and S9+: Everything you need to know, all in one place

 

Samsung's flagship Galaxy S9 and Galaxy S9+ phones look like the S8 they replace, but they're all new inside.

The Galaxy S9 and S9+ come in four colors: midnight black, titanium gray, lilac purple, and coral blue. The prices for an unlocked phone are as follows:

Samsung Galaxy S9 review

 

Samsung's tweaking has made the S9 one of the best Android phones around.

Superb screen for video ; Powerful performance ; Dual-aperture camera is effective ; Well built ; Great design

Audio still lacks the last word in timing

Samsung has gone down the Apple route of only making minor tweaks, but this has resulted in one of the best Android phones this year

Samsung Galaxy S9

 

The Samsung Galaxy S9 puts the latest LTE bands and a great low-light camera into a smaller form factor than the S9+ for the best one-handed phone right now, but leaves a few things out.

Feels great in one hand. Excellent low-light camera performance. Better sound and network support than the Galaxy S8.

Not a radical upgrade from the Galaxy S8. Larger S9+ model has better cameras, more RAM, and stronger Wi-Fi performance.

Bottom Line: The Samsung Galaxy S9 puts the latest LTE bands and a great low-light camera into a smaller form factor than the S9+ for the best one-handed phone right now, but leaves a few things out.

Samsung Galaxy S9 review: Incrementally better in all the right places

 

Samsung's Galaxy S9 isn't the revolutionary design breakthrough that the Galaxy S8 was, but it's no less of a great phone.

The Infinity Display is even better than the one on the S8. ; Camera takes fantastic pics in all kinds of light. ; Fingerprint sensor is in a much better location.

Camera features like Dual Aperture and Super Slow-mo are a little gimmicky. ; AR Emoji is fun but not as advanced as Apple's Animoji. ; The single camera is great, but the S9+'s dual camera would have been better.

Anyone who’s in the market for a new phone should seriously consider buying an S9. It might be an insignificant upgrade in terms of physical design, but that’s a concern only if you really, really want people to know you have the latest and greatest...

Samsung Galaxy S9 review: predictably great, predictably flawed

 

The Galaxy S9 is all of the good and all of the bad we've come to expect from Samsung

Great design ; Beautiful display ; Fast performance ; Capable camera ; A headphone jack!

Average battery life ; Gimmicks galore ; Bixby still sucks ; Samsung has a poor history of updating its phones

Predictably, Samsung has made yet another excellent flagship phone. But, just as predictably, it still has plenty of room for improvement.
