Samsung Galaxy A9 (2018) Review

Score: 10.16/10

Samsung Galaxy A9 (2018) is a high quality cellphone released a few years ago, counting with a great 2200 megahertz Octa-Core processing unit, a 6.3 inches screen, and 2 cameras, a 24 MP back side camera and a 24 MP front camera.

This phone is much lighter than what you expect from a phone this size. Although this cellphone is only 6.4" long and 3.03 inches wide, it manages to contain a 6.3" screen. This cellphone is just 0.31 inches thick, making its way into the thinnest cellphones podium. This phone combines Glass and Metal . This device is available in three colors, bubblegum pink, caviar black and lemonade blue.

Samsung packed the A9 (2018) with a great 6.3-inches screen, and a resolution of 1080 x 2220 , which makes everything look perfect.

This cellphone is equipped with a Qualcomm Snapdragon 660 SDM660 chip, holding an exceptional Octa-Core processor running at 2200 MHz and a great 6 GB of RAM. A great feature of the A9 (2018) is its huge 128 GB internal memory and an external SD slot, which allows you to store lots of applications, games, pictures and videos without having to worry about running out of space.

The Samsung Galaxy A9 (2018) offers wi-fi connection (which can be provided to other devices acting as a modem or router), 4G (LTE-A) super fast connection and also HSPA+ connectivity (a bit slower 4G type) and fast 3G connectivity, over HSDPA and HSUPA technologies. The Samsung Galaxy A9 (2018) has 2 Nano SIM cards so it is able to work with 2 different carriers or phone lines.

This cellphone has two cameras, a 24 megapixels back facing camera and a 24 megapixels front-facing camera. Its back facing camera has an aperture of F1.7 so it can shoot impressive photographs even in poor lighting conditions. It also captures videos up to 3840x2160 (4K) at 30 fps. To complete the camera, it also has auto-focus.

The A9 (2018) counts with a great 3800 mAh Li - Polymer non-replaceable battery that can keep this cellphone running for many hours and even reach the end of the day without charging it. An issue to take into consideration is that the A9 (2018)'s battery is non-removable so you can't throw it away and buy a new one when it begins losing capacity, even though with so much capacity you will probably replace this phone before it happens.

The A9 (2018) also features a wide variety of great features such as Biometric fingerprint, Facial unlock, NFC (Near Field Communication), Bluetooth, GPS Localization and FM Radio, and plenty of sensors like Light Sensor, Proximity Sensor, Accelerometer, Gyroscope and Compass.

No matter if you need a device to mostly use social networks, are looking for a work phone, are an amateur photographer or want it for gaming, this cellphone is probably a great choice for you. This cellphone includes Charger, USB cable, Headphones, Documentation and SIM removal tool.
