Samsung has suddenly become a lot more adventurous of late. There's been a flurry of launches over the past few months, and it looks like the Korean giant is catching on to the fact that it needs to innovate and jump on board with trends as they happen. We usually see new top-end features debut with the flagship Galaxy S and Galaxy Note series, and then trickle down to the mid-tier A-series and youth-focused J-series. For example, Samsung was one of the first to introduce tall, narrow Infinity Display screens, but it took ages for this well-received feature to show up on lower-tier offerings. Competitors caught on much sooner, and began selling low-cost phones that looked much more modern and sleek than Samsung's own.

Samsung Galaxy A9 (2018) Summary

The Samsung Galaxy A9 (2018) is the world's first quad-camera smartphone, and also represents a striking new aesthetic for Samsung. However, the rest of its specifications are weaker than other phones it's priced up against. If you're buying it just for the cameras, you should know that the zoom and wide-angle cameras don't deliver very good results, especially in low light. The primary camera works quite well though. Battery life is good, and the 6.3-inch display is this phone's biggest highlight. The SoC is weak, and you don't get flagship-class features. Buy this phone if you like new features that you can show off and play with, but avoid it if you want an all-rounder.

  • Samsung Galaxy A9
    Pritish Senapati (Oct 12, 2018) on Gadgets 360
    Why a phone need 4 rear camera to do the job, why they don't use technology like google pixel 2xl to do the same job in a single camera. It's ridiculous to have 3-4 rear cameras @ back.
