Galaxy S9 and S9+ Review: The Android Phones to Beat
 

Everyday, Samsung keeps coming up with something new. The Galaxy S9 and S9+ is designed to function in very significant ways. The new upgraded versions of the Samsung Galaxy are extremely perfect in camera for better low-light images, it supports what we call the Super Slow-Mo video mode and a super performance. Galaxy S9+ competitor Iphone X, is one of the top notch mobile phones in the market. Be it as it may, S9+ is still trying it’s best to give to the public what they would deserve to get.

Samsung is adding another color option to the Galaxy S9 lineup. Starting on June 24, you’ll be able to order a Sunrise Gold version of either the S9 or S9+ through Samsung.com.

I’ll give Samsung a go for not changing the plan of the Galaxy S9 much, on the grounds that the phone’s edge-to-edge Infinity Display as of now looked staggering when it was presented a year ago on the Galaxy S8. However, Samsung had to work even more harder to come up with the best size displays in a bit tight packages.

Meanwhile the measurement of S9+ and S8+ is slightly different. While the S9+ measures 6.2 x 2.8 X 0.33 inches, the S8+ takes 6.3 x 2.9 x 0.3 inches. However, the difference in weight between S9 and S9+ is by 6.7 versus 6.1 ounces, likely owing to the addition of the second rear-camera lens. The S9 is a lighter 5.8 ounces.

If there is any big change between S9 and S9+ is on the back of the phones. This is so because Samsung has moved the fingerprint sensor to immediately under the camera rather than sitting close to the right handside of the lens. Although this tweak has been made, the reader is still very close to the bottom lens.

The S9+ and S9 are available in few colours including Midnight Black, Lilac Purple and Coral Blue. Alot of people out there prefer the Midnight Black colour.  One important thing you need to know is that all the recent versions of Samsung are all IP68 water resistant, therefore you do not have to worry when your phone is dunk in 5 feet deep water for as long as 30 minutes.

Durability: Tough to a point

Toughness of the phone has also been put to test by conducting a face drop to he ground test from a height of about 4 feet high and 6 feet high respectively. Same test was done from the edge of the phone at about 4 feet high to a concrete floor and this caused the Galaxy S9’s screen to crack, however the phone was still usable. Amid this, a 6 feet drop on concrete floor caused a big damage to the phone.

Finally, a 4-foot drop into a water-filled toilet didn’t cause much more damage to occur, but by this point, the screen was shattered pretty thoroughly. It survived, though, which earned it a toughness score of 6 out of 10.

Display: It’s killer

A funny thing happened with the iPhone X. Even though that phone reportedly packs a Samsung-made OLED screen, it beat Samsung’s own phones in our screen shootout last fall, achieving the highest brightness (indoors), widest viewing angles and most-natural-looking colors.

Samsung has responded with the Galaxy S9+, whose curved display offers a brighter picture than the S8+ and covers even more of the color gamut than the iPhone X and Pixel 2 XL.
