Samsung Galaxy S9 review

Intro

I just recently switched from Apple's iPhone SE to the Samsung Galaxy S9. The S9 seemed so much better for me for quite a few reasons. I was ale to make the switch easily because I wasn't too attached to the Apple ecosystem. the Apple ecosystem might come up when you ask someone why they bought an Apple product. The Apple ecosystem makes every Apple device work in sync with each other. For example, if you get a text message on your iPhone, you get the message on your Mac. So if you aren't already attached to the Apple ecosystem, take a listen to what Samsung has to offer

Specs

The S9's processor is a Snapdragon 845, which isn't as powerful as the iPhone X's A11 processor but works perfectly fine for Android. The RAM for the S9 is 4gb and the S9+ has 6gb (which is a LOT for a phone). Both of the phones do better than the iPhone X in this department (the iPhone only has 3gb). The camera on the S9 and S9+ is the first phone to have dual aperture lenses. This makes dark pictures look really good (this is only on the rear camera). The rear camera also has super slow-mo. It can record at a whopping 960 frames per second! The bottom camera is a telephoto sensor with 2x zoom (only on the S9+).

Ports and Buttons

The ports consist of volume control and the Bixby button (to remap it, download bxActions) on the left and on the right is power. On the bottom are the 3.5mm headphone jack (yes, they still exist in 2018) and the USB-C port. I just have to say a special thank you to Samsung for including REALLY NICE AKG headphones. They sound far better than what Apple gives you. On the back of the phone, you have either one or two cameras depending on the model, a fingerprint sensor, and heart rate sensor. The speakers are great and have Dolby Atmos support.

Conclusion

This is the perfect phone... for people who like Android. If you have an S8, don't bother upgrading. I personally love the phone and glad I made the switch. I won't be reviewing the OS today, but I might in the future

RATING

9.5/10
