Samsung's flagship smartphones, the Galaxy S and Galaxy Note series, play a pivotal role in the company’s ability to dominate global markets. Last year’s Galaxy S8, Galaxy S8+ and Galaxy Note 8 (Review) helped Samsung capture a big chunk of the global market in 2017, passing Apple along the way, and the company hopes to achieve even better results with its 2018 updates. The Galaxy S9 and Galaxy S9+ have been launched in India very shortly after being announced globally at MWC 2018, for the same starting prices as last year’s models. This is good news for all those who were planning on picking either one up on launch day.

Samsung Galaxy S9 Summary

The Samsung Galaxy S9 features a metal and glass design, with tapering edges on both sides. It has a 5.8-inch Quad HD+ Super AMOLED display with an 18.5:9 aspect ratio. Touch response and colours are superb and it also supports HDR. In India, the phone uses an Exynos 9810 octa-core SoC and comes with 4GB of RAM a choice of 64GB or 256GB internal storage, which is expandable. The stereo speakers delivers good sound quality and there's wireless charging here too. The main highlight is the camera, which features a variable aperture, super slow motion videos up to 960fps and AR Emojis. Camera performance is good too, especially in low light. The 3000mAh battery supports fast charging and should stretch an entire day on a single charge.

  • Have high expectations on the S10
    Austin Lebon (Jan 28, 2019) on Gadgets 360 Recommends
    I have a high expectation on Samsung Galaxy S10, while when I see the leak posts and saw its camera, I think it's far away from my expectation.

  • Best "Compact Premium Smartphone" with " handsome pricetag".
    KOUSIK (Jun 13, 2019) on Amazon
    *Please *Note : If you have the courage to face a "really unbiased" review of Galaxy S9 Coral Blue 64 GB, only then carry on reading otherwise please leave.*Writing this after one month had past....As there is nothing to exaggerate unnecessarily about this "Premium" phone, I am focusing on some other aspects.Firstly, Fortunate enough to hold such a costly phone with a handsome 'pricetag'...Holding this phone of so much so qualities like Edge Lighting ,Quad HD curved display, IRIS with Face Unlock , Awesome Stereo Speakers, One of the best Camera, NFC, Wireless Fast Charging and so on , the not ending points will definitely make you feelFULL PAISA WASOOL.Secondly, as I take pride in calling me a "sound enthusiast ", this point is about the audio quality . The two stereo speakers tuned by Harman / Akg is of premium quality with enough loudness.The headphone of Akg is something to wonder about. Saying this because some sounds I couldn't even hear from the highest quality Sony Hi Res audio system of mine is getting discovered while listening through AKG Headphone.Third point is about Camera. Plethora of options to shoot still picture or video . Quality is decent and pleasing to naked eye.About Software : I posted a snap. Check it. Android 9 with One UI Version . Awesome experience.Lastly battery is good but draining quickly. Not an issue because you can afford a fast wireless charging of Samsung branding.Again requesting everyone not to listen to useless drawbacks.*Please Note that I bought this phone from my nearby Samsung SmartCafe from a reliable friend who is the store manager.*This model is Indian made.Colour : Coral Blue.Memory : 64 GB ( 56 GB usable).HOPE TO COVER ALL POINTS . S10 IS COMING WITHIN A MONTH. GRAB THIS WITH A DISCOUNTED PRICETAG AND I ASSURE YOU NOT TO REGRET.
