    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 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

    • The screen is amazing. Crisp and so smooth. Very responsive.
    • The battery isn't as long lasting as previous models plus it overheats when charging. Screen protectors are way overpriced but then again so is the phone.
  3. Awesome and flawless
