    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.

    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

    • Good phone with a fast processor. Camera is great as well.
    • The phone uses battery really fast, even if it hasn't been used for anything. Another problem I found was with getting a reasonably precious screen protector that was responsive with the curved screen. Most protectors significantly reduce the sharp responsiveness of the actual screen.
