    Samsung has hit a home run with the Galaxy S9 and S9+. While it may not look much different to last year’s S8, there are still enough new features and abilities to make this one of the best smartphones on the market today. Read more

    • Sleek design, large Infinity Display, excellent camera, Super Slow Mo, low light photography, superb audio quality and Dolby Atmos.
    • Same design as last year, finicky screen swipes in camera mode.

    Samsung's Galaxy S8 was easily the best smartphone released in 2017, though it had a few minor flaws. Come 2018, Samsung has fixed those, added more power, RAM and a camera that's a good order of magnitude (or maybe more) better. Read more

    Samsung’s Galaxy S9 is a strange breed of smartphone. With a Snapdragon 845 processor, great camera, and 18:9 screen, it has all the trappings of a fantastic 2018 handset. Yet, at the same time, it’s remarkably similar to the Galaxy S8 that it replaces. Read more

    In some ways, the Samsung Galaxy S9 is a serious step up from last year’s flagship phone. In particular, its new 12-megapixel f/1.5 rear camera performs far better in low light than its predecessor. Its new Exynos 9810 processor also promises significantly faster performance. Read more

    The S9 has a big responsive screen with great resolution and clarity. Great to watch videos and pass the time. The only negative point is that the battery life isn't that great. Read more
