If you are thinking of an amazing high-end smartphone to buy, the Samsung Galaxy S9 would be a very good option. The flagship was released in 2018 and like all Samsung phones, is nothing short of mindblowing. Samsung phones are designed with a user-friendly technology for both their hardware and software and it comes as no surprise that the S9 beats most other high-end phones of the same price range or even more. And interestingly, it competes with Apple’s iPhone X. In certain ways, the phone is very similar to its predecessor, the Samsung Galaxy S8 especially in terms of designs so it is possible to mistake them for each other without close observation.
Remember Apple’s Animoji that was launched with the iPhone X? The AR emoji is quite similar albeit less intense than that. The AR Emoji helps you to create personalized emojis; emojis which are similar to your facial features. It automatically creates an avatar for you when you smile into the front camera and, of course, you can make it much more personalized by changing the colour of your facial features. It can also be used on social media platforms. This feature can also make GIFs of you talking or moving which is particularly exciting especially for social media.
The Bixby feature was first introduced with the Samsung Galaxy S8 a year ago. But the Bixby on the Galaxy S9 is much more improved even though it could be better. This feature enables you to make commands or dictations to your phone and have it respond with answers.
The Biometrics feature of the S9 offers you a high level of convenience and security. Convenience when unlocking your phone and paying for things and security if your phone happens to get stolen. The Biometrics feature includes the facial recognition function, the fingerprint scanner and the iris scanner. The S9 is one of the very few phones which have excellently combined all these features right on one phone. The catch with each of these features is that they are very easy to use, quick to respond and have a swift and seamless operation.
The design of the S9 bears a striking resemblance with that of the S8 which was released a year before but has greatly been improved upon and has a better functionality than it. The phone has a screen display of 5.8 inches. Samsung has also innovated much fewer bezels in the upper and lower part of the screen display so the phone is pretty very easy and portable to either carry about or slip into your pocket. If you love ease and comfortability, this high-end smartphone would not be a bad option as you can even operate it with only one hand. The phone looks beautiful and attractive, one that you would be proud to flaunt when you’re out. The design features have also been put in place to give you an almost flawless time when you’re working on them. Another noteworthy innovation about the phone is that it used the Gorilla Glass 5. This protects your phone better in cases when it falls or accidentally hit something. If you are also not a fan of phone cases, you can do very well with it. For ease of operation, the fingerprint scanner is situated right below the rear camera. The Bixby feature button is the found in the middle of the left side of your phone and while this is a welcome development, it can sometimes be mistaken for one of the volume buttons. The headphone is located at the bottom left of the phone. While the fingerprint scanner located behind the phone could become blurry with increased use, this is not a problem as you could always simply clean it with a wipe.
The Samsung Galaxy S9 has display colours which are well-blended to give you a convenient and functional overall brightness and contrast.
One feature to look out for in Samsung phones is their interestingly bright cameras and for the Galaxy S9, this is not an exception. If you are a lover of pictures or selfies, this phone will certainly not disappoint you. It has a front camera of 8MP and a rear camera of 12MP. Of course, the S9 is specially designed with a number of camera features that would blow your mind. First of all, the phone has a low light function that helps you to capture images clearly even in low light conditions. Take a picture with the S9 and you can be sure that it would come out with the most fascinating quality as pictures are bright and contrasts are well in place. The camera also has a slow-motion function, one that is incredibly new to most smartphones. It is best used when you’re not in motion, however. Details on images taken on the S9 are also clearly defined. The 8MP selfie shooter of the phone does not have as many features as the rear camera but it is such a great option for snaps.
The Samsung Galaxy S9 packs a battery capacity of 3000mAh, just about the range of a lot of smartphone batteries. The battery lasts for several hours but, of course, it largely influenced by other factors like how much you stay on screen and the number of running background apps most other Android phones. Interestingly, the S9 also has the wireless charging feature, which has sprung from his glass body, similar in this wise to the iPhone 8. The phone is compatible with Q1 wireless pads and all you need to do is to just place your phone on them. The battery life is reasonable and even has a fast charging function.
The Samsung Galaxy S8 has an excellent processor. It is powered on the Exynos 9810 processor which makes it incredibly easy and swift for you to move from app to the other on your phone. Operating the phone is in one word, seamless. For the storage, the phone has a RAM of 4GB and an internal memory of 64GB. This makes the phone smooth and you can be sure not to experience hitches and freezes.
