Samsung Galaxy S9 review: love and hate

★★★★★ 4.5
Verdict: The time has come: Samsung has unveiled the Galaxy S9 and the S9+, the smartphone duo which will set the bar for all the competition this year. The S9 doesn't bring with it a radically fresh design, but under the hood and in the software features, things are different.
Pros: 
  • Performance
  • Camera
  • Display
  • Bixby
Cons: 
  • Unoriginal design
  • Slow unlocking
  • Battery life
  • Bixby wake-up

Samsung Galaxy S9 and S9+ review: Refinement, refined

★★★★★
Verdict: The nice thing about the Galaxy S9 and S9+ is that they hold very few mysteries. Go back to our review of the S8 twins last year, and the majority of what you'll read there applies here. The Galaxy S8 and S8+ were great phones, and the S9 and S9+ are better versions of them.
Pros: 
  • Display An absolutely brilliant screen - the best on any smartphone out there
  • Amazing brightness, colors, and viewing angles, Fingerprint scanner The fingerprint scanner is back in a location where it won't give you constant frustration.
Cons: 
  • So much glass I mean, this should be obvious - the Galaxy S9 looks kind of fragile
  • There's a lot of glass on this phone
  • Use a case, Updates Even with Project Treble, Samsung still avoids committing to a period of Android OS updates, let alone timely ones, for its flagship handsets.

Samsung Galaxy S9 review

★★★★★
Verdict: It's true what they say - you don't fix what's not broken. And that's what Samsung did for the Galaxy S9 - it didn't change what was already great, it just tweaked specs wherever possible. And it has worked out just fine for them.

Great phone!

The Galaxy S9 is a great phone that doesn't live up to its own hype

★★★★ 4.0

  • slick design
Cons: 
  • No improvement in battery life
  • Bixby is still not very useful

Samsung Galaxy S9: Is the new camera any good?

  • Excellent low-light camera
  • The fastest Android smartphone yet
Cons: 
  • Slightly worse battery life
  • More expensive than Galaxy S8

★★★★★ 4.5

Samsung Galaxy S9 Dual SIM SM-G960FD 64GB

★★★★★ 5.0
Verdict: My only issue is that it does not fast charge, which is the main reason I got the phone as my old phone took forever to charge. I've tried multiple cords and chargers and have fast charge enabled. When I contacted seller multiple times I got no resolution.

Samsung Galaxy S9 Dual SIM SM-G960FD 64GB

★★★★★ 5.0
Verdict: Samsung's promotions ahead of the launch of the Galaxy S9 and S9+ promised "The Camera. Reimagined" – and boy did it deliver. The camera onboard the S9 and the even better S9+ have set a new benchmark. The S9+ was actually judged by DxOMark as having the world's best smartphone camera.

Samsung Galaxy S9 review: Incrementally better in all the right places

★★★★★
Verdict: 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.

So far so good... but the bluetooth is questionable...

★★★★★ 5.0
Verdict: I upgraded from a Galaxy S3 to the S9. There is a lot to get used to but it is definitely an improvement. Except for the bluetooth. The bluetooth is inconsistent. It never automatically connects to my car like the S3 did. Often it takes several scans and selections before it connects.

Love it

★★★★★ 5.0
Verdict: I pre ordered this phone and I love it. I've changed from iPhone best bit is when you set the phone up it asks if you want to transfer just plug them in together with adaptor provided and 30 minutes later it was complete. Very impressed. Very user friendly and the camera is amazing!

Samsung Galaxy S9 Dual SIM SM-G960FD 64GB

★★★★★
Verdict: 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.

Samsung Galaxy S9 Dual SIM SM-G960FD 64GB

★★★★★
Verdict: Samsung hasn't made any drastic changes to the Galaxy S9 and Galaxy S9+ compared to their predecessors, and the company didn't really need to do much. Last year's design is still stunning, and now, it's a little more polished.

Samsung Galaxy S9 Dual SIM SM-G960FD 64GB

★★★★ 4.0
Verdict: Despite being launched as a completely new generation, I'd say the Galaxy S9 itself is a transition model. It's more of an upgrade similar to the S-branded models in the iPhone family and which Samsung launched in order to buy more time until more substantial upgrades are ready.And this does make...

Junk

★★★★★ 5.0
Verdict: Bought as upgrade/replacement for s7 edge that broke while travelling in europe. Battery life sucks, narrower body is awkward to use, lack of home button makes it more difficult to operate. On the plus side, the camera is a big step up for low light pictures but it's poor value for money.

Samsung Galaxy S9 Dual SIM SM-G960FD 64GB

★★★★★ 4.5
Verdict: Samsung's latest flagship is really good if you spend most of your time in Instagram feeds or creating content for the internet. For everything else the handset is just a marginal upgrade on last year's Galaxy S8 but you'll be pleased to know that the experience has been refined somewhat in a number...

Samsung Galaxy S9

★★★★ 4.2
Verdict: The Galaxy S9 is a nice incremental upgrade, but its low-light camera isn't a game changer and some new features fall far behind the iPhone X. S8 owners can skip, but it's a good upgrade from older Androids.
Pros: 
  • The Galaxy S9 once again proves Samsung's formula of a gorgeous 5.8-inch screen, sexy dual-curved design and terrific camera for well-lit shots can't go wrong
  • Whiplash-fast speeds, wireless charging and water-resistance complete the package
  • And it looks stunning in purple and blue
Cons: 
  • Low-light photos often look blurry and lack the fine texture and contrast of competing phone cameras
  • The Galaxy S9's camera frequently, accidentally switches between modes
  • 3D avatar software is tragically bad and a new face-unlock tool is inherently insecure.

Fantastic!

★★★★★ 5.0
Verdict: Great phone, well done Samsung. Has everything you would expect from a Samsung smartphone and more. The pictures are exceptionally vivid and clear and the effects make even better photographs. Sound quality is a definite upgrade on my previous s7, the AKG in-ear headphones are very good quality.

Samsung Galaxy S9

★★★★★
Verdict: Last year Samsung didn't unveil a Galaxy smartphone at MWC 17, instead focusing on its manufacturing standards and unveiling the Galaxy S8 a couple of months later. The move proved a smart one, with the Galaxy S8 taking top spot in our books as the best phone of the year.
Pros: 
  • Impressive design
  • Bright and crisp display
  • Great all round camera
  • High powered processor
Cons: 
  • Bixby still meh
  • Not a huge step up from S8

Samsung Galaxy S9 Smartphone Review

★★★★ 4.2
Verdict: We prefer the Samsung Galaxy S9 over its larger sibling S9+. It is not as bulky and the dual-camera is not worth the additional price. The Korean manufacturer once again delivers a really great smartphone, but it is more of a facelift of last year's Galaxy S8 and there are still some bugs, and some...
Pros: 
  • appealing design, great display, fast SoC, LTE Cat
  • 18, protected against water and dust, expandable storage, Dual-SIM SKU available (Duos, good sensor equipment, USB 3.1 with DP, HDMI, and OTG, great camera, wireless charging, Ultra HD videos at 60 FPS

Samsung Galaxy S9 and S9+ Smartphone Review

★★★★ 1.0
Verdict: But ultimately, regardless if additional features are useful or not, they don't hurt the phone at all. You don't have to use them. With respect to these smartphones as a whole, we can easily say they're the best-rounded smartphones you can buy right now.

Samsung S9 review: a refined Android flagship with show-stealing camera

★★★★★ 5.0
Verdict: The Samsung Galaxy S9 is, in terms of hardware and design, an iterative update of last year's Galaxy S8 . The S9 features the exact same screen as last year's phone, the same amount of RAM and storage, the same capacity battery, and an almost identical design, too.
Pros: 
  • 12MP rear camera with dual-aperture technology
  • Still fabulous Super AMOLED 18.5:9 QHD+ screen
  • AR Emoji
  • while not perfect
  • are lots of fun
Cons: 
  • Similar specs to the Galaxy S8

No USB connector in box so can't be sure it's a new untampered box

★★★★★ 5.0
Verdict: The phone generally seems fine and as expected from a Samsung although battery life and motion detection/face recognition could be better. The box cane with a seal saying "European SIM only" and all the manuals are non-English. However the adaptor was UK which was weird.

Samsung Galaxy S9 Dual SIM SM-G960FD 64GB

★★★★★
Verdict: Let's not beat around the bush, the exterior of the Samsung Galaxy S9 is essentially a carbon copy of the S8 . Yet, even with all that sameness, Samsung's balanced no-notch design seems more considered than before. It doesn't feel needy like a lot of the new iPhone X copycat handsets I saw at MWC.
Pros: 
  • Way better performance
  • battery life
  • and low-light photos AR Emojis aren't all they are cracked up to be
Cons: 
  • AR Emojis aren't all they are cracked up to be

Samsung Galaxy S9

★★★★ 4.0
Verdict: The Samsung Galaxy S9 sits alongside the S9+ as the latest flagship smartphones from Samsung. Both phones are notable in that they are the first smartphones to offer cameras with a variable aperture lens, that is one that you can control yourself.

Samsung Galaxy S9 Dual SIM SM-G960FD 64GB

★★★★★
Verdict: The Samsung Galaxy S9 is smaller than the Galaxy S9+, and that's a good thing. The single-camera setup at the rear keeps up on most counts with the dual-camera setup on the S9+. There's also less RAM on the Samsung Galaxy S9, but on the face of it that doesn't really matter.

Samsung Galaxy S9 & S9+ Review – The Everything Phones

Verdict: Far from playing it safe, Samsung has further refined an already excellent design language, adding in new features and improving what needed improving.

Cons: 
  • Only supports QuickCharge 2.0
  • Camera noise processing is still too heavy
  • Front-facing camera should be better
  • New camera interface is terrible
  • Battery life should be better
  • Having fewer features on the smaller Galaxy S9 camera is lame

Great Phone

★★★★ 4.0
Verdict: This Samsung S9 phone might not be the latest and greatest, but it is still a great phone. Relatively compact, large bright screen, very good camera. I was stressing out over picking this phone as I wasn't sure how it would compare to my old S7 Edge, which I loved, but this phone is so much better.

Great Phone - The Complete Package: Screen, battery, Sound, Customization, & an audio jack

Verdict: Purely impressed! An amazing piece of hardware from Samsung which - to me - excels in all things hardware related, and this is no exception. There is not a single element of the hardware (screen, battery, size, ports, camera, hardware specifications, resilience, and so forth) that isn't outstanding...
