The Galaxy A9 is not a perfect deal by any means, but it is certainly up there. The phone, as stated before, appeals to a wide variety of users, and isn’t one-dimensional at all. It offers something for everyone out there (except perhaps budget users who are looking for entry-level devices, which is quite obvious).

The USP of the phone is certainly the four rear-mounted cameras, so, if you are one of those who want to ditch their DSLR and are also in need of a new phone, then this might be it. But does having more cameras equate to better performance? We will elaborate more on this in a later section of this review.

Even if you do not consider the camera aspect, the phone on its own offers more than enough to get people to buy it. An octa-core processor, coupled with 6 or 8 GB RAM options, and 64 or 128 GB internal storage options with expandable memory, a stunning Super AMOLED display and a decent price range make the phone a decent deal for anyone looking to shell out upwards of INR 30000
