    About the Phone

    Though it looks similar to S8+, Samsung S9+ has addressed some of the design issues faced by the previous model, like the incorrectly placed fingerprint scanner. To add to that, the killer camera installation armed with stunning clarity in low-light photography brings photography to a whole new level. Couple that with a big screen and surrounding audio experience, and Samsung S9+ is going immerse you in some fantastic experiences.

     

    S9+ comes with a camera which is modeled after the human eye. Carrying the ability to change apertures based on the light availability, Samsung S9+ captures sharper images both in ideal-light and low-light situations and keeps the details in the picture with a human-eye-like accuracy.

     

    Finally arriving with stereo speakers, Samsung S9+ gets you a richer sound quality, featuring the booming Dolby Atmos. S9+ provides a large screen with rounded-edges and 360-degree sound promising to give you a theatre-like experience.

     

    Samsung does not push boundaries with their battery, and while it brings in upgrades in performance, it remains way behind iPhone X. It may not be a revolutionary change over S8, but for the innovative camera and immersive audio technology – S9+ is worth it.

     

    Samsung Galaxy S9+ arrives to dominate the flagship market with a brand new camera and a long-awaited audio modification. Priced at Rs. 51,880, this model is set to make history in the flagship phone market.

     

    Staying true to traditions and yet becoming unconventionally modern, S9+ retains the headphone jack and the microSD slot, offering enough freedom of choices to users. While it may be of a high range, S9+ has brought in enough upgrades to make it worthy of the price, especially compared to the premium-priced iPhone series.

    Samsung Galaxy S9 Plus tops in style, courtesy to Samsung’s signature design of melding two glass panel with a metal frame. However, it does not change much of its design from the previous Samsung S8. It cuts down a few millimeters to shorten the bezels, but even then the phone stays big for small or regular hands. A significant change is the positioning of the fingerprint reader at the back-center of the phone, just like most other Android sets. It is a significant change since the Samsung S8 had the terrible design of keeping the fingerprint scanner adjacent to the camera making users accidentally smudge the lens.

    Unlike its rivals, Samsung sticks to tradition and comes with a 3.5mm headphone jack and a microSD slot. Like the previous model, it comes equipped with the digital assistant Bixby button. It’s in the same position, and there is no option to remap it without third-party software.

    Samsung S9+ comes with an expansive 6.2-inch display, covering 90% of the front with minimal bezels to deal with. It has the standard 18.5:9 aspect ratio for current all-screen smartphones and the default FullHD 1080p display, but it can also to go up to Quad HD+ resolution. The combination produces sharper images and high contrast ratio, and if you pair it with the futuristic curved edges, you get nothing short of a portable theatre experience. The S9+ scored a whopping 630 nits on the light meter, much higher than Pixel 2 XL’s 438 nits and 574 nits of iPhone X. So, with a sharper display and better sunlight legibility, Samsung S9+ bests its competition.

    In India, Samsung has equipped the set with Exynos 9810 SoC, while many other countries got the Snapdragon 845. On paper, both these processors should perform the same. Partnered with 6GB RAM, you can engage in heavy 3D gaming, multiple app downloads, and run various apps – it does not show any lag till now. While iPhone X’s A11 is still one of the fastest chipsets, S9+ comes a close second. Tests like exporting a 2-minute 4K video file found Galaxy S9+ taking 2 minutes and 32 seconds, faster than Pixel 2 XL’s 2 minutes 55 seconds but remaining significantly behind iPhone X’s 42 seconds.

    Low-light imaging gets a terrific boost with Samsung’s all-new flagship, the world’s first  f/1.5 aperture equipped in a smartphone. It has a unique Dual-Aperture technology. For low-light images, it switches to the f/1.5 aperture so that more light could be collected, and in more light, it moves to the f/2.4 aperture reducing the light intake and keeping the images from getting overexposed. It’s a human eye on a smartphone. Samsung S9+ can also take in 28% more light with 30% less visual noise than S8+.

    The front camera is the same 8MP with autofocus as the Samsung S8+. Selfies are bright but may get oversaturated. Notably, Samsung S8+’s images may have a slightly reddish hue compared to iPhone X’s natural hues.

    S9+ packs the same 3,500 mAh battery as S8+, lasting for a day. Continuous web-surfing sees S9+ lasting an outstanding 10 hours and 59 minutes – a tad bit longer than iPhone X’s 10 hours 49 minutes. However, a 90 minutes looped HD video saw a 13% decrease in the battery.  Fast Charging helps brings the phone from bone dry to 100% at only one hour 41 minutes. It also comes with wireless charging which is much faster than iPhone X.

    With a human-eye-like camera and fantastic audio, Samsung has boosted its race to the top lists with S9+. The big-screen display is striking, and the upgrade in the performance will run any heavy game you want. However, Samsung S9+ is a big phone, and it is not handy at all. It also comes with an expensive price tag. If you already have an S8, the upgrades do not look good enough to shell out the big bucks. However, if you own an old phone and want to enter the recent flagship-zone with a fantastic camera, better performance, and killer audio, Samsung Galaxy S9+ is worth considering.
