Samsung Galaxy S9 REVIEW – Worth the HYPE?

by birtanpublished on November 27, 2020

What's going on guys Carl here back with another episode and getting to what you guys have been waiting for the S 9 I've had it for two weeks since launch day at MWC in Barcelona and Here I am letting you know my thoughts and if this guy is worth the hype so first and foremost the design and if we actually just grab my s8 which I've got right here they look very very similar and that's not necessarily a bad thing the s8 I think had a great design it was one of my favorite phones and kind of set the precedent for edge to edge displays and the s9 kind of rolled along with that if it's not broken don't fix it so we've

Got two phones that look very very similar Samsung does say that the s9 is brighter but unless you've got both devices side-by-side I don't think you'll be able to spot the difference it's still beautifully made has minimal to no bezels the chins and foreheads are tiny it's nice switching around to the back this is where you're gonna start to see some of the minor differences over on last year the s8 everyone complained about the fingerprint sensor being next to the camera it was ridiculous you could never reach it Samsung

Listened and positioned it now underneath the camera slightly easier to get to and the biggest bonus is not getting your camera all smudged up because it's below it now we still have these same glass panels on the back which means it still suffers from the fingerprint magnet that you can never escape so you can either rock a case or a skin just like this guy from D brand camo I'm surprised you can actually still see the phone at this point four different colorways of midnight black coral blue titanium and lilac purple this year I think I'm leaning towards

The purple it's different and definitely will turn some heads it's an eye-catcher around the rest of the phone nice to see that Samsung is still including the three-and-a-half millimeter headphone jack at the bottom USB C for charging the right has the on-and-off /sleep button the left hand side volume rocker and unfortunately still has the dedicated Bigsby button mine is updating as I rarely use Bixby and I wish Samsung gave us the option to map this to say Google assistant Bixby is just one of those things where I get Samsung is trying to do its own thing

But at least give us the option to map it to something else it's fine to ship it stock with a phone it's just something that I've never got on board with I haven't made a Samsung accounts I think they really need to figure this out and either nail it out of the park next year or just switch to Google assistant which I'm sure most of us want to see I'm not gonna even mention too much about the performance as it's got the latest chipsets the Snapdragon 845 every single thing that you throw at this guy as it should for a flagship close to a thousand bucks it crushes

Without even breaking a sweat multitasking playing 3d games 4k video crushes crushes very very well speaking of 4k video this is where the hype this year was around it was the camera or the camera reimagined so this is the first phone to feature a dual aperture camera from F 1.5 which is the fastest camera on a smartphone you can get 2f 2.4 so what that really means it will allow more light in at F 1.5 so low light performance this guy shines literally or on a day like today where we've got enough sunlight it'll switch to 2.4 which means the images will be sharper

As the lower f-stop you get the softer the images tend to get low-light performance by some of these sample shots you see are better than say the pixel to excel the iPhone X so that is good I'll let you guys be the judge though I did post my full camera review as well as comparison shots between this the iPhone the pixel 2 linked right up here click here right now the other cool thing was 960 fps slo-mo which I thought is super dope to have in a camera the only thing that I'll say about that is you can't actively choose when to set the slo-mo you're kind of relying on

Software to choose when the slow motion takes place you have to actively place the moving Jek in the square and the phone will decide when to get the slo-mo bit so you might miss it it might be a bit of hit or miss I think that should easily be fixed in a software update we'll just have to see if Samsung decides to do that the second thing added was a our emojis and if you can kind of see mine I get it it's something a bit more interactive than say the an emojis over on the iPhone but just like an emojis it was

Kind of something that was a bit of a gimmick I used it the first time second time and after that I stopped I can see the same thing for a are emojis as well I found that the mapping of the AR moji is also slightly interesting I'm not sure if my eyebrows or my mouth do move like that that's also something that I think that can be slightly tweaked in a software update and I honestly think the biggest low key selling point of the s9 is these speakers the performance of these guys kind of has blown me away and is now setting the benchmark of how good a smartphone should sound

I know it's a bit tough to translate that sound through this YouTube video but trust me when you hear this thing it's great probably the best that I've heard and other than that those are the big changes that are in the brand new s9 / s9 + as I mentioned if you've got an s8 you will feel very at home with this guy not too much has changed it's definitely an incremental evolution anyways I hope you guys enjoyed my video on the s9 and s9 Plus remember to check the links for the full camera review and of course comparisons to the iPhone 10 the pixel to which I think are its main

Competitors and I will catch you guys in one of my next episodes or vlogs base you
