Samsung Galaxy S9

The camera. Reimagined.

 

It’s true what they say – you don’t fix what’s not broken. And that’s what Samsung did for the Galaxy S9 – it didn’t change what was already great, it just tweaked specs wherever possible. And it has worked out just fine for them.

Futuristic is what we used to call the Galaxy S7 and S8 design, but now the iconic glass curves are just mainstream. You can see them shine on the cheapest of smartphones, even on knock-offs, all the way up to the current Galaxy S9 series. The shape might be wearing off, but Samsung has managed to keep its coolness for yet another year thanks to some stunning choice of colors.

There is a new chipset – Snapdragon or Exynos – and regardless which one ends up in the Galaxy S9 which is available in your region, it’s enough to know that they are both blazing-fast.

But the camera is where the company has really pushed the envelope. With a variable aperture of f/1.5 to f/2.4, now the Galaxy S9 should be able to rule the field in either bright daylight or after dark. We also appreciate the 4K at 60fps video recording and the 960fps slow-mo clips with automatic motion detection.

There are even more tweaks which may not be as apparent, but you would appreciate them once you start using the Galaxy S9. The loud stereo speakers tuned by Harman – a first for the Galaxy S lineup – promise immersive sound with Dolby Atmos support. The combined fingerprint, face, and iris recognition for versatile unlocking seems like something we need on every modern phone. There is more, of course, but before we kick off this review, let’s dig into the specs.
