About Samsung :-

Founded back in 1969 as Samsung Electric Industries, Suwon, South Korea-headquartered Samsung Electronics today makes everything from televisions to semiconductors. It released its first Android smartphone in 2009, and can be credited with the launch of the first Android tablet back in 2010. The company is among the biggest players in the smartphone market in the world. It has recently developed smartphones running Tizen OS, as an alternative to its Android-based smartphones.

Introduction :-

The Galaxy S9 is the perfect-sized phone. It’s easy to wrap our palms around this smooth 5.8-inch device, and our fingers ergonomically rest on the curved edges along the S9’s frame. The power button on the right edge sits in an easy-to-access position, as does the Bixby button on the left edge. It’s a shame we’ve turned off Bixby’s functionality, so the button remains useless — more on that later.

Despite the small size, the volume rocker on the left edge is still a little too hard to reach, just like it is on the Galaxy S9 Plus. We have to shuffle the phone a little lower to tap it.

On the bottom edge of the phone is a USB-Type C charging port, with a bottom-firing speaker and a headphone jack. You’ll be pleased to learn that Samsung finally uses stereo sound — the top earpiece works with the bottom-firing speaker for AKG-tuned, Dolby Atmos audio. Music is easily room-filling, with rich, clear sound, but weak bass. It’s a step up from Samsung’s previous smartphones, but dual front-facing speakers like those on the Pixel 2 would be an even better addition — we often end up covering the bottom-firing speaker when holding the phone in landscape mode.

The back of the S9 isn’t drastically different from years past. Samsung has essentially flipped its horizontal camera and fingerprint sensor setup vertically, making it easier to place your finger. Sadly, it’s still easy to touch the camera sensor because the fingerprint module isn’t distinguished enough from the camera frame, and both are still too close to each other. Speaking of fingerprints, get ready to carry a microfiber cloth or use a case with the S9 — otherwise you’ll spend countless minutes getting rid of smudges and fingerprints off the glossy, glass back.

It may have been around for a year, but we still can’t stop gazing at Samsung’s Infinity Display. Samsung has taken the effort to mask all the cameras and sensors sitting in the bezel of the phone, making it look like the screen blends in with the edges, which creates a more immersive viewing experience.

The 5.8-inch screen size is the same as the S8, but there are some improvements in the AMOLED panel. Colors are incredibly vibrant, but still accurate, and the screen gets brilliantly bright. The S9 has a Quad HD+ (2,960 × 1,440 pixel) resolution, just like the Galaxy S9 Plus, which means it’s even sharper than its larger brother because it packs more pixels (570 pixels-per-inch to be exact).

The end result is a beautiful screen that’s perfect for binge-watching the new season of Jessica Jones. The S9 supports HDR10 after all, so apps like Netflix, YouTube, and HBO with HDR10 content look their absolute best on this phone. Sure, the Galaxy S9 Plus has more screen real estate, but we’re happy watching shows and movies on the smaller S9 as well.

The biggest difference between the S9 Plus and the S9, other than size, is the extra camera on the rear of the S9 Plus. Like many other flagship smartphones, the dual-camera system offers features like 2x optical zoom and a Portrait Mode for a blurred background effect, as well as a wide-angle camera on certain devices like the LG V30. You won’t get any of that on the small Galaxy S9, but you do get a killer single 12-megapixel camera with variable aperture.

As we’ve explained before, variable aperture is when the camera can switch between two apertures: In the S9’s case, it can switch between f/1.5 and f/2.4.

For imaging, the smartphone is also well armed. It comes with dual 12-megapxiel rear shooters which are backed by a dual-tone LED flash that can handle low-light photos and videos. With optical image stabilization and phase detection autofocus, the imaging piece is capable of capturing good photos in most lighting conditions. On the front, there is an 8-megapxiel front-facing shooter for video calls and selfies.

The aperture is the hole in the camera that lets light into the sensor. The S9’s f/1.5 is the widest aperture available on a smartphone currently, and that means it can absorb a lot of light because the hole is larger (the lower the number, the wider the aperture). The problem with having such a wide aperture is that the details in the photograph are not as sharp. So if you compare a daylight photo taken with the f/1.5 aperture versus the f/2.4 aperture, the latter photo will be far more detailed.

If you’re a power user, don’t expect to get through a day without charging up the Galaxy S9. After using it heavily for watching YouTube videos, taking photos, playing video games, and browsing the web, we reached 7 percent by 6 p.m. That’s not good at all, and you can easily find better battery life with the competition, especially the Huawei Mate 10 Pro.

If you don’t use the phone as much, you’ll obviously see better battery life. You can also head to the device manager settings to optimize the battery and get as much time out of it as possible.

The phone supports fast wireless and wired charging, so you have plenty of ways to charge it back to full strength quickly.

The Galaxy S9 and S9 Plus are the first phones we’ve tested with Qualcomm’s Snapdragon 845 processor, and we’re happy to announce the new chipset delivers great performance. Apps open quickly, and moving throughout the user interface is mostly smooth. We say mostly because we have encountered the occasional stutter, which reminds us of Samsung’s TouchWiz launcher days.

The scores are slightly lower than what we received on the Galaxy S9 Plus, and that may be due to the 6GB of RAM in the larger phone — the regular S9 only has 4GB. More RAM is beneficial when you’re doing a lot of multitasking, and it also helps future-proof the phone. Still, 4GB is plenty for most people, and the S9’s scores are way higher than the Pixel 2 and almost all Android flagship smartphones from 2017. Needless to say, the Galaxy S9 can easily handle multitasking, gaming, and everyday tasks without issues. You’ll be satisfied with performance on this phone.

The S9 comes with 64GB of storage, but there’s a 128GB model and a 256GB model available as well. A MicroSD card slot lets you add in more space if you need it.

SOFTWARE

Operating System Android 8.0
Skin Experience 9.0

Samsung Galaxy S9 review: small in size, big in shooting capabilities

PROS

  • Impressive display
  • Incredible cameras
  • Good performer

CONS

  • Heating issues
  • Samsung Experience UX is a work in progress
  • Battery life is not up to the mark

. Verdict:-

The Samsung Galaxy S9 is a fantastic smartphone, albeit is sandwiched awkwardly between the Galaxy S8 and the Galaxy S9 Plus which makes it a hard sell. The smartphone isn`t a huge upgrade over its predecessor and has noticeable shortcomings when compared to its bigger brother. Therefore, if you already own the Galaxy S8, then it`ll be hard for you to justify upgrading to the newer flagship since you`ll only miss out on an improved camera and an ergonomically positioned fingerprint sensor.
