Samsung Galaxy S9 review


The mark Samsung need’s no itself introduction and it has created the stamp in the market of smartphones.The brand has largest market shares in the smartphones market all over the world. Off late, the brand has concocted smartphones running on Tizen OS, as a substitute option to its Android-based running handsets.

The brand’s Galaxy S9 is finally launched on 11 March 2018, It was supposed to lead the charge where the Galaxy S8, and expected to fulfill all needs of gadgets lovers. No doubt it is the best smartphone ever but it is not as much of an upgrade.

All things considered, that is at first look, there are some pile updates that can feel appealing to some gadgets geek. Indeed the design is very much identical to the already existing brand’s famous handset Galaxy S8 and in all actuality, this should have been the ‘S’ variation of that model if Samsung at any point needed to chimp Apple’s naming strategy.

Quick Highlights

No doubt it is pack with all latest features and updates which can still make it stand out in a crowd of competitors,


The Samsung Galaxy S9, high-power camera on the back that brings genuine innovation in the dual-aperture shutter, as well as a more robust frame and so, so much more power under the hood. It has single super speed dual pixel 12MP Auto Focus sensor with OIS F/1.5(for best low light shots) and F/2.4(for great brighter scenes) While enhancing the intelligence of the sensors it can examine and enhance your images more effectively. The device has an 8MP camera for selfies. This big changes in camera thus inspire the customers to buy this handset.

Samsung S9 display


The Samsung Galaxy ‘S’ series display has already been independently judged to the very best in the market, bringing with it the best in color reproduction, brightness, accuracy and overall sharpness. The Samsung Galaxy S9 display offers phenomenal quality with great color reproduction, brightness, and the clarity which is all faultless to your eyes. Actually, Samsung has managed to make the super AMOLED technology used for the display to deliver images that are truer than ever.It has 18.5:9 aspects ratio which basically means 5.8-inch QHD+curved super AMOLED display.


Unlike last year, Samsung’s realised that there launched Galaxy S8 biometric unlocking features of that phone made it unusable. The Fingerprint scanner was too hard to reach, the iris scanner too unreliable and the facial recognition just too poor.

Samsung is now working on all three features with seamlessly and interchangeably.

Intelligent Scan has merged the iris scanner and facial recognition to make unlocking your phone with your face a far, far less complex errand and as now the fingerprint scanner is much easier to hit.The speed of the intelligent scan feature is much faster than the last year, where the iris scanner and facial recognition on Galaxy S8 were between 30% and 50% accurate. The two together on the Galaxy S9 yield success almost every time.

AR Emoji

On the software side, the Galaxy S9 and S9+ have a new AR Emoji feature, sort of like Apple’s Animojis, which uses a bit of 3D modeling to allow you to create customized animations based on your own facial expressions.
