Samsung is well known for taking its competitors head-on and with the launch of its new flagship device, Samsung did the same. The all-new S9 has made its presence felt and that is well supported by its breathtaking features. This time also, Samsung didn’t miss on launching the elder sibling of its Galaxy S9 series and It turned out to Galaxy S9+. Although the new device looks similar to Galaxy S8 model, it didn’t miss on performance and other aspects. Samsung Galaxy S9 and S9+ are powered by Qualcomm Snapdragon 845 chipset which promises to offer 25% boost in performance.
Get used to Intelligent Scan Unlock with Samsung Galaxy S9
The screen is marvellous, all thanks to Samsung’s engineering department. Samsung always makes sure to give their best when it comes to flagship devices. The display holds a stunning 5.8-inch Super AMOLED screen that calls for some applause. It packs everything that a perfectly crafted display needs to have. The screen is quite bright and sharp. You won’t face any issue while dealing with it, even on a full sunny day. The front panel sports bezel-less edge-to-edge Infinity display that makes its bezels slimmer than ever.
The image capturing by Samsung Galaxy S9 has immensely revolutionized through the inclusion of the dual aperture camera. This has infused a lot of power under the camera shutter. The camera stands out to be the first smartphone to pack a camera with dual aperture. The new offering is quite capable of switching between f/1.7 and f/2.4 which ultimately produces some vivid pictures irrespective of the light conditions. In addition to this, dual camera setup is another highlight that braces for Telephoto lens and a Wide-angle lens. The wonderful Bokeh Mode lets you take full advantage while clicking a picture.
Dual speakers are just cherry on the cake. The Dolby Atmos inclusion in the Galaxy S9 has only added more theatre-like audio experience for the users. The acquisition of Harman has significantly helped Samsung to make some huge strides in the audio department. The dual stereo system in Galaxy S9 is a direct proof of it. Not only this, you can also play music on two devices at once through Bluetooth 5.0. For best audio experience, Samsung has packed AKG earphones.
One of the brightest spots in all the features is the Intelligent Scan Unlock method. This feature has improved the security to the manifold. The biometric scan works with the combination of Iris Unlock and the Face Unlock technique. The first preference is given to iris scan and in case it doesn’t work, the face detection feature comes into play. If you still didn’t get satisfied with all this, you have all the conventional security features like fingerprint, pattern, password, and pin.
Samsung Galaxy S9 has a dedicated Bixby key on the left side, but to be fair, Bixby doesn’t seem to be a skilled voice assistant as yet. The aide, which isn't a year old, still requires a ton of improvements. The AR Emojis does make a part of this latest device, but the authenticity of it shrinks if we compare it with Apple’s Animojis.
Another big leap comes in the form of storage. Galaxy S9 is offered in 64GB and 256GB variant. It means that you can expand the device memory up to 400GB through a microSD card. Samsung has done favour to 3.5mm jack audience by not omitting it from Galaxy S9. In terms of dust and water resistant, Galaxy S9 is IP68 certified.
After Galaxy Note 7 failure, Samsung is on its feet in terms of battery performance. The new device is powered by a 3,000mAh battery pack. The Snapdragon 845 chipset is said to assist in tapping the unnecessary usage of battery. But in the end, it all depends upon the user, what services and features are in use at any given time.
With the unbeatable processor, amazing sound quality, Bluetooth 5.0, and camera quality, Samsung Galaxy S9 is bang on its target. The device features all that a flagship device is supposed to carry. But with all these hard-earned appreciation, a few flaws does reflect in Galaxy S9. The glossy back panel of the device invites a lot of dust and finger smudges all the time. Then, Bixby and AR Emoji call for some improvement.
Though, the cons may not be of major distraction for many users and performance is all that they need. Samsung Galaxy S9 price may become hindrance for some. But, the last call always rests with the user. It will be highly enticing how Galaxy S9 fares against its competitors.
Where to buy: MSRP $720.00
