Samsung Galaxy S9 Review

Samsung Galaxy S9 Review

Samsung has revealed the Galaxy S9, which is set for release on 16th March. The phone follows its very successful predecessor-the Galaxy S8 and could potentially set the bar for Android smartphones this year. Here is what we can expect.

What Can We Expect?

At first, the S9 doesn't appear like much of an upgrade because it's similar to the S8 in design. It can be hard to notice which one is the Galaxy S9. However, the phone is one of the most powerful in the market, featuring a powerful camera, edge-to-edge display, AR emoji, and a chic super-slow-motion video. The high-power camera on the back brings genuine innovation, as well as a more robust frame and more power under the hood.
The screen is brighter and the dual speakers make this more of a media marvel. Also, the Galaxy S9 fixes one major flaw with the S8 by making it easy to unlock the phone with your face or finger. It also comes with a single lens camera and is available in four colors although three are accessible in the UK: Midnight Black, Coral Blue, and Lilac Purple. 
Other features include live translation and infinity display. Some of its drawbacks include the absence of a dual camera and battery life, which the 3,000mAh battery unit still powers. Nonetheless, the phone is worth considering.

Samsung's AR Emoji

Samsung's AR Emoji is another selling point; it uses amplified reality technology and the front camera to generate the user's avatar. The slow-motion camera is also an improvement of the old model and it can now record at 960 frames per second. These are a clear response to Apple's Animoji and Samsung's offering feels like a less good version of this, albeit one with a bit more personality.
To create your own avatar you simply smile into the front-facing camera, and the Galaxy S9 creates your own digital version of you. Then you can change its hair and choose an outfit. Too bad the options are here a little bit limited.


Upon release, it will sell for £739 while the bigger S9+ will go for £869. The phone is available in two models; the S9 has a 5.8-inch display while the S9+ comes with a 6.2-inch screen. The S9 has a slightly longer screen and a fingerprint sensor at the rear. Be ready for the 16th of March!
