The Galaxy S9 Plus's dual aperture helps the device take pictures with bright and vivid colors in most situations.
Overall, the performance of the device is great which is to be expected and the camera and other functions are exactly what you hope to get but there just isn't more to it. But that doesn't mean anything, really, for Samsung or for Galaxy S9 sales.
The flagship phone is widely-tipped to sport a hinged clamshell design with two separate OLED touchscreen displays. You can argue whether the ability to turn your phone into a PC is a worthwhile experience, but the fact of the matter is, Samsung is thinking of the phone in ways Apple isn't. AnandTech ran a series of benchmark tests on the Samsung-made Exynos 9810 version of the Galaxy S9 (which should perform better than the Snapdragon 845) and found that it trailed the iPhoneX's A11 Bionic chip by a wide margin.
This time around there is also a new Lilac Purple colour variant from Samsung for both the phones. They both feel like solid, premium products - but the S9 certainly wins out in the looks department. The 5.8-inch Super AMOLED 1440 x 2960p screen has further gone ahead and broken the previous reflectance score with a 4.4% reflectance level. With a release that is pretty far away at this point, it's hard to pin down what exactly we can expect from the launch of the Galaxy Note 9, but considering the extra time Samsung has for development, there's certainly a possibility we could see something more revolutionary from the upcoming phone. For the S9 Plus, you'll pay $915, or $30.50/month for 30 months. And there's no competition when it comes to slow-mo. iPhone X tops off at 240 fps, but the new Super Slow-Mo mode on the S9 can record at a whopping 960 fps. The octa-core chip is also receiving a bump in speed with the faster four cores ramping up to 2.7 GHz.
The S9 will feature 4GB of RAM and 64GB of internal storage, while the S9+ gets a beefy 6GB of RAM and 128GB of internal storage. The Galaxy S9 and S9+ also support Dolby Atmos, giving the effect of 360-degree sound.
We'll continue to test the phone, but for more, check out our Galaxy S9 hands on and Galaxy S9 Plus hands on.
It's literally and figuratively the biggest smartphone here in Barcelona, with an expansive 6.2-inch display and elegantly curved edges that spill over the sides. However, it has a mechanical aperture like a dedicated DSLR.
The S9+ comes with a second lens which isn't present on the regular model. Variable aperture on the wide-angle lens is the most powerful feature of the phone's camera. A phone with a high score in the photo category but a poor score in videos won't deliver the best video footage.
Samsung hasn't stated the reason for this weird functionality.
"The way people use their devices and what they want from technology is changing". They know exactly how to design something to be super efficient, user friendly and make it seem effortless at the same time. With this deal, you will save upto $125 on its base price. It does all of this nearly simultaneously and is faster compared to the Face ID on the iPhone X. However, some researchers who have had some time to test out the Galaxy S9 have found that despite introducing a new tech, it is still not as secure compared to Face ID, reports Cnet. Of the top smartphones on this list, the Pixel 2 remains the best option for videographers, with 96 points out of 100.
