The Most Underrated Smartphone of 2018?

– What's up guys?
Saf here on SuperSaf TV.
In this video, I'm going to talk about what I think
is one of the most underrated smartphones of 2018.
Normally, when we think of a flagship
that's the best for the price,
the best bang for buck,
as a lot of us guys like to say,
then the device that usually comes to mind
is a OnePlus device,
currently the OnePlus 6T, and rightly so.
OnePlus offer a great package
with lots of great specs and features
for a very reasonable price point.
But, here's the thing.
I was on Amazon the other day
and I got a suggestion for a device
which is currently coming in cheaper in a lot of places,
compared to the OnePlus 6T,
and still offers a really good package.
And I also saw a video from Dave2D,
who classed this as one of his favorite smartphones of 2018.
And that is, of course,
the Samsung Galaxy S9, as well as the S9+.
Now this device was released earlier in the year
and generally it does tend to get
a little bit forgotten towards the end of the year.
I did my top five smartphone picks mid-year of 2018
and the S9 and S9+ did make that list
but they didn't make my end of year list,
as they didn't make many of the top lists
of other YouTubers,
and that is because they tend
to get forgotten towards the end of the year.
Particularly because of the Samsung Galaxy Note devices
which are generally more feature packed devices
that take away the attention
from the Galaxy S devices released earlier in the year.
But the big advantage of that is that the Galaxy S devices
then come down quite significantly in price.
Currently, they are around the same price as the OnePlus 6T.
So, what are you getting for a similar price point
to the OnePlus 6T?
Well, you're getting a lot of the things
that you already get on the OnePlus 6T,
such as the Qualcomm Snapdragon 845 processor.
Fast charging,
good overall cameras,
but you also get a lot of things
that you don't get on the OnePlus 6T
such as a better display, in my opinion.
It's Quad HD plus in terms of the resolution
and it's also not got a notch.
Build and design are subjective,
but on the S9 and S9+ you do get that dual-curve design
which a lot of you guys may like.
And then you get things like a 3.5 mm jack
with included AKG earphones.
Stereo speakers,
an official IP68 water and dust resistance rating,
wireless charging,
an SD card slot for expansion.
A lot of these things you don't get on devices in general,
let alone the OnePlus 6T.
And for those reasons,
if you are on a bit of a budget,
maybe around 500 pounds or $500,
I do think that you should also consider the S9 and S9+.
And this is not to say that the OnePlus 6T
is a bad device at all,
it's a great device overall.
You will be getting more RAM in general,
and speed and performance I do prefer on the OnePlus 6T,
compared to the S9 and S9+,
but it is something that I definitely think
you should consider.
I've just had a very quick look on Amazon right now.
The S9 is currently going for around $470 with warranty.
This is a refurbished model however.
And the S9+ is currently going for around $490,
once again with warranty.
I'll be leaving some links in the description below.
But if you look around in other places, such as eBay,
I'm sure you'll be able
to get potentially even better deals.
So, just a very quick video to discuss this topic.
Lots of devices that are released early in the year,
do drop quite significantly in price towards
the end of the year
but they are still very competitive devices
which I think you should consider
if you're in the market for a new smartphone
and you are on a bit of a budget.
A bit shout out to Dave2D for initially highlighting
this topic in his video.
I'm going to be leaving that linked into the description below.
