Is  Samsung Galaxy S9 one of the top-rated smartphones in 2018?

Yes, it is a great smartphone. The release might have been a bit to fast, as just last year 21.04.2017 the Samsung Galaxy S8 came out. You wonder if people switch there phones so fast actually less than 1 year. 

The Flaws of Samsung Galaxy S9 

A disappointment, on the other hand, is the camera. It has its flaws. The camera has an industry first dual aperture lens. What does not break the promise of making bright and stunning photos, but soon as there is movement the most of the time the pictures become blurry? That is a bit of a setback and disappointment for Samsung. 

3 D Avatars and face unlock in Samsung Galaxy S9 

Samsung tried to match the iPhone X feature of Animoij. Unfortunately, that did not go so well as it is only half-made and it has quite a few flaws that are not excusable for that price and promise.

The Camera 

The dual aperture camera, unfortunately, makes for many low light photos they look blurry and unrealistic. With less contrast and textures other smartphones have. The quick switch between modes is annoying when you haven’t finished.

The slow-motion video in automatic mode is useless, and it gives a low image quality than normal slow motion videos.

Emoji Track 

One of the promising features were the 3D Avatar that tracks your expressions of your Emoji. That did not work out so well as mention already above the customization needs longer than expected and the tracking of expression is poor.

Intelligent Face scan 

That feature has a problem and this problem occurs over and over again. I would recommend not to use it as it is not safe. ( that is my opinion)

best phone of the 2018

 

Just a few other features what makes the Samsung Galaxy S9 an elegant and stylish Smartphone. 

The Samsung Galaxy S9 looks great in midnight black and titanium grey. I love the blue and purple colour.  

# Bright 5.8 inch/ 14.72 cm AMOLED screen with a dual curved display. Experience it is great.

# A Great feature is the battery life. (we hope that it will last) On the other earlier Samsung  Smartphone models, the battery gets quite hot and it is fast draining. But from the promise of the  Samsung Galaxy S9, the battery will last you from morning until evening. Note that streaming and Navigation will take a drain on your battery.

# Great outdoor photos with the 12 -megapixel camera. 

# For your gaming pleasure, the fast Snapdragon 845 processor handles the graphic-intensive games.

# Fingerprint reader for mobile payments what also makes them more secure.

# Wireless charging 

# Water resistant rating (IP68, ) passed the dunk test. That is one great plus for the Samsung Galaxy S9. 

 

Conclusion: 

The Samsung Galaxy S9 is a great smartphone if you upgrade from an earlier model. If you have the Samsung Galaxy S8 then you can skip the Samsung Galaxy S9. The Samsung Galaxy S9 is pricier than the Samsung Galaxy S8. 

With all the flaws the Samsung Galaxy S9 as I would say it is a great smartphone if you upgrade from below Samsung Galaxy S7. It still looks good and stylish even a bit sexy, but it is not a must-have. There will be soon another Model of the Samsung Galaxy S 10 maybe? and we hope the flaws are taken care off. 

If you are an Android smartphone lover I guess you will go for the Samsung GalaxyS9. 

If you would have to choose between both smartphones which one would you prefer. The iPhone X or the Samsung Galaxy S9.
