Samsung pins hopes on lost ground in premier phone segment with S9 and S9 plus

 

As Samsung’s new Galaxy S9 and S9 plus are claiming for the best camera as a Unique selling point (USP) in this segment and Google’s pixel had the best camera smartphone ever when it released in last quarter of 2017. So let’s talk about the SAMSUNG claim.

 

 

First have a look at the specification S9 plus smartphone. Samsung describe it as a blend of innovative design and technology. 

 

Key Features:-

  • 6 GB RAM |64 GB ROM | Expandable up to 400 GB
  • 2 inch Quad HD+ Display
  • 12MP + 12MP Dual Rear Camera| 8 MP Front Camera
  • 3500 MAH battery
  • Exynos 9810 Processor

Display Feature of this phone is conventionally good. It has a resolution of 2960 x 1440 pixels having Super AMOLED display type and 16M display colours.

S9 plus offer decent Color. You can buy “Coral Blue”, “Lilac Purple”, and “Midnight Black”.

OS & Processor features Android Oreo 8, Octa core, primary clock speed of 2.7 GHz and secondary clock speed of 1.7 GHz.

Apart from Specification of cellphone  which you can have a detail view, Lets talk in detail about. HERE WE GO- THE REVIEW

“We at tecnoupdate.com not write an essay to describe the phone. Here you will get to the point review so that it takes less time to make a verdict for you about phone and that too in an effective way.”

 

THE CAMERA

The Galaxy S9 mobile phones offer more versatile cameras, as they take good shots in decent lighting, and they can take much better photos in low-light environment than any other phone in current segment. And it gets better zoomed shot with a dedicated 2x zoom lens.

The Galaxy has incredibly wide f/1.5 apertures, which lets in more light into camera’s sensor. Lets tell you that “the lower the number after the “f”, the wider the aperture”

The super slow 960fps (at 720p HD) is an engineering class because most other phones can only do slow motion at 240fps. So this is the best in class slow motion.

You will find good experience while scooting a video which includes 4K 60 fps video recording but also super-slow-motion video at 960 fps. But if you share your video then it might not fetch you the desire result as other phone don’t have this feature.

Another problem is the resolution which is a bit too low at 1280 x 720 pixels.

OTHER FEATURES TO BE RECOGNISED

Dolby Atoms stereo speaker, tuned by AKG, energized you with crisp and clear loud three dimensional sounds.

This phone also come up with a combined face recognition and iris scanning to unlock even in low-light conditions.

This phone also let you find relevant information about a subject by simply focusing the camera on it.

SOME UNNOTICED IMPROVEMENT

7000 series aluminum and a thicker Gorilla Glass 5 on the front and rear. There will be a higher chance of survival in case phone have encounter with the earth.

We recommend you to opt for a case. It looks little off road but if phone breaks rhea it will burn whole in your pocket.

 

Unlocking your new Samsung

What you love that the S9 includes multiple ways to unlock the phone- It includes Iris, face unlock, fingerprint, pattern, PIN and password.

Intelligent scan combines Iris & face scanning.

 

Phone for traveler

 

Live Translation- If you’re someone who travels a lot, this feature sure comes in handy. Use the camera to get a real-time translation of commonly used international languages. It makes sense for who travels a lot. So, it would be a great companion for your tour.

 

AR Emoji is not convincing

 

Samsung tried something new which is appreciable but the expectation with AR Emoji is not convincing. With the help of front camera you can recreate yourself with 3D avatar. But problem is that the AR Emoji isn’t up to mark, and there are not many choices for customizing with hair, clothes and so on.

 

 

What we appreciate

  • Fantastic dual aperture camera.
  • Super slow mo video
  • Gorilla Glass 5 on the front and rear
  • Excellent all round performance
  • Vivid HRD display

 

What we don’t appreciate

  • Duplicate functionality of some Samsung app (Two voice assistants, two web browser and two app stores)
  • Glass surface is prone to scratches.

 

Finally we tecnoupdate.com recommend you to buy this phone, but overall this phone is not a very big take up from S8 or Note 8. But with the launch of this phone Samsung hopes to regain market share lost to Apple and OnePlus in the premium segment.
