    After almost a year of Samsung releasing their massively successful Galaxy S8 and  S8+ phones and some frustrating months of leaks and discussions later, we finally have the Galaxy S9 and S9+. Despite its features, is the hype worth the exorbitant launch price tag of whopping Rs. 59,400 for a 256 GB version? With more than 4 colour variants to choose from, ‘Midnight Black’ is our favourite, the Galaxy S9 comes with a 12 MP Single Rear camera with Dual Aperture lens including features such as Super Slow-motion capture, AR Emojis, optical image stabilisation including a rear LED Flash and an 8 MP front camera.

    Samsung is the most trusted brand in the Indian smartphone market since a decade now and it has served the users across the continents in multitudes. Samsung has amazed users with the stiff build quality and provided excellent performance, but the price tag has always been high.

The base variant has got 4GB RAM and 64GB internal storage and the price tag at which you can buy it is Rs.31,606, the mid-variant operates on 4GB RAM and a sufficient 128GB of internal storage and priced at Rs.49.900, the top-end variant comes with same 4GB RAM, but the internal storage is 256GB and it comes at a higher cost than the previous two and that is Rs.53,900. However it might be out of stock on many online platforms, you can purchase it from the official site of Samsung and other sites like Amazon and Flipkart etc.

    About the Mobile Phone

    The Samsung Galaxy S9 is made of metal and glass, with tapered edges on both sides. It boasts a 5.8-inch Quad HD+ Super AMOLED display with an aspect ratio of 18.5:9. It has excellent touch response and colours, and it also supports HDR. In India, the phone is powered by an Exynos 9810 octa-core SoC and comes with 4GB of RAM and an option of 64GB or 256GB extendable internal storage. The dual speakers provide superb sound quality, and there is also wireless charging. The camera is the primary attraction, with a customizable aperture, super slow motion films up to 960fps, and AR Emojis. Camera performance is also excellent, particularly in low light. The 3000mAh battery allows for quick charging and should last a whole day on a single charge.

However it might be out of stock on many online platforms, you can purchase it from the official site of Samsung and other sites like Amazon and Flipkart etc. 

    When it comes to the look and feel of the phone, it is not much different from what its predecessor had going for it. In all honesty, that’s a pretty good decision by Samsung, considering the S8’s and that perhaps is a very good decision by Samsung since the S8’s design was immensely well received. Opting to go against a drastic makeover in the structural design, Samsung has made numerous subtle changes that make the smartphone even more powerful from the inside while flaunting the same beautiful design. The fingerprint scanner now is on the back right below the primary camera setup to a more natural resting position of ease for the index finger. It is also perhaps the only flagship left with an audio jack still intact in its design.

     

    The new addition of the stereo speakers makes the media experience even better. The sound is louder and clearer with much better bass. This is leaps and bounds ahead of the S8 in sound quality. It also supports Dolby 3D surround sound which has directionality to multichannel audio, It’s an effect most noticeable through the headphones.

    With Samsung being the biggest manufacturer of AMOLED screens for many other major players as well, they happily took this opportunity to save the best for themselves. The Galaxy S9 boasts a 14.73 centimetres (5.8-inch) Quad HD+ Super AMOLED Infinity display with 2960×1440 pixels and 18.5:9 aspect ratio.

    The phone also uses Intelligent Scan (Face Recognition + Iris Scan) for unlocking the phone on top of the usual fingerprint scanner.

    Bixby needs a special mention here, with the virtual assistant once again getting a dedicated button for ease of access. The AI has improved since we last used it in Galaxy S8 but has a long way to go before it can outperform its counterparts.

    The performance is not just caged to the processor but it also depends a lot on the GPU and RAM capacity. The S9 runs with Android v8 Oreo OS with Exynos 9810 Octa-core Processor and a lithium-ion battery setup of 3000 mAH, giving an unparalleled performance when it comes to multitasking and performing higher-end tasks with efficiency.

    The phone is bundled with a 12 MP Single Rear camera with Dual Aperture lens that gives it an edge over its competitors. The dual aperture introduces many unique features to the users of this phone, including – low light image capture, super slow-mo video capture, and AR emoji.

    Samsung has focussed a lot on video capturing as well. Like the flagship Sony Xperia handsets, the Galaxy S9 also comes with 960 frames per second video capture option. The ‘Super Slow Motion’ option shows the level of attention put into the details by Samsung. Both the S9 and S9+ have very good performances with the secondary telephoto camera in the S9+ giving it an edge over the S9 owing to the clearer image quality.

    Galaxy S9 is powered by a 3000mAh battery. The massive battery capacity is enough to last an entire day for normal to medium usage and routine tasks.

    As expected, the Samsung Galaxy S9 is everything the S8 was and more. You have the sleek built, the infinity display, and an amazing camera, but going even beyond that, Samsung has reworked the things that people were not happy with, and does not leave a lot left to complain about. Despite this, It might be possible that we are just spoilt, but there is nothing groundbreaking when it comes to the S9.


    If you are looking for that cutting-edge Samsung Device with money not being an issue, then the S9 is the way to go. We wait in anticipation for Samsung to push the envelope a bit further with their next release.
