The Samsung Galaxy S9 Plus is one of the most beautiful and prettiest phone out there right now. It looks and feels like a premium device. With the curved edges on the front and back and the glass on both sides it’s a good-looking phone. It has no knotch, just a top bezel which is preferable. It much looks like the Galaxy S8, but the difference is th placement of the fingerprint scanner.
For the Samsung Galaxy S9 Plus, there are otherways to unlock the phone like with face recognition and eye scanner. There’s also something that combines both of those called intelligence scan and works pretty good.
On the hardware it seems to have everything that you could possibly need in a phone. There is the fingerprint scanner, micro SD card expansion, headphone jack and USB C port with fast charging. Speaking of fast charging and battery life, Samsung Galaxy S9 Plus has a 3500 milliamp hour battery inside and it will easily get you through the day. Wireless charging is also convenient but if you are using a cable it does have fast charging which is also super convenient.
Samsung phones have beautiful displays. The display of the Samsung Galaxy S9 Plus is bright and colorful. It’s AMOLED screen. The colors are punchy but they’re not too punchy. You can go to the settings and bump up the resolution all the way up just to enjoy even. This is a curved display which isn’t a new thing. To video watching and just like media consumption on this phone is a little bit better compared to the Galaxy S8.
The Samsung Galaxy S9 Plus has stereo speakers, on top and at the bottom of the phone. It’s not a reason to upgrade if you’re on the Samsung S8 but it is something to look forward.
Its performance is nice with a more stock Android feel. Samsung has been better at keeping things cleaner and nicer looking. There still is a lot of extra unneeded things to it but there’s also a lot of features like jam-packed through the phone. It is also easy to navigate around the phone. Comparing it to the iPhone X, you don’t have to deal with learning swipe gestures or anything like that. We still have those on-screen controls at home button, multitasking and the back button. Everything is super fast and snappy thanks for those top-of-the-line specs.
Bixby is there for certain hands-free things to launch the camera. Not only launch the camera it also like it can take a photo for you. You could just say, “Hi Bixby take a photo” and it’ll start the timer and just take the photo which is pretty cool. When you swipe or launch the Bixby screen there’s different cards and there’s news weather tiles and you can customize it put whatever you want.
The Samsung Galaxy S9 Plus has a great camera. Photos have great colors in detail, sometimes a little too soft looking even with no beauty mode. If you’re coming from Galaxy S8 or S8 Plus plus you’re definitely gonna see some improvement. Samsung Galaxy S9 Plus now has two 12 megapixel cameras with one of them having variable aperture. Low-light photos are better with more light. The camera app on here is a little bit cleaner and nicer looking now. If you really like taking pictures with your phone you get to dive into all those settings. Live focus is pretty cool too on here with its ability to change the amount of blur and switch to the wide-angle camera after the picture is taken.
