    There’s no doubting that Samsung’s Galaxy S9+ is a top phone, and given what it had to work with, it’s no surprise. The Galaxy S8 and S8+ were excellent handsets, clones of each other set to bigger sizes, and using those as a template practically guarantees more excellence from Samsung. Read more

    • Low-light isn't great for video, AR Emoji is a very unimpressive gimmick, Battery life could be better, Bixby can get it very, very wrong, Expensive

    Happy with the phone itself, but it appears Samsung have upgraded to Bluetooth 5. Consequently, I cannot get Bluetooth working on any of my devices that my S7 would connect to no problems. It will not even find the devices in the Bluetooth scan - including Fitbit, car stereos (x2) and soundbar. Read more
