Score: 83.3 / 100

Samsung Galaxy S9 is a breath-taking cellphone launched in March 2018, having an extremely powerful 2800 megahertz Octa-Core CPU, a really big 5.8-inches screen, a 12 mega-pixels back facing camera and an 8 mega-pixels front-facing camera. We will get a better understanding of this phone's features when we get into more details.

The Samsung Galaxy S9 is a very compact phone, taking into consideration it has a 5.8 inches screen and it's just 5.81 inches long and 2.7 inches wide. This cellphone is very slim and practical, being just 0.33" thick. Talking about its materials quality, this device is mainly created with Glass (Corning Gorilla Glass 5) and Aluminum . Samsung didn't seem to put much effort to reduce weight in this 5.75 ounces cellphone. Samsung made this cellphone in many colors like burgundy red, coral blue, ice blue, lilac purple, midnight black, sunrise gold and titanium gray.

Samsung equipped this cellphone with a incredible 5.8-inches display, and a 1440 x 2960 resolution, which makes everything look vivid and colorful.

This phone comes with a Qualcomm Snapdragon 845 SDM845 system chip, packing an extremely powerful Octa-Core CPU speeding at 2.8 GHz with a big 4 GB of RAM. The Samsung Galaxy S9 counts with a 64 GB great internal storage memory and an external SD slot, which allows you to install lots of applications, games, pictures and videos without thinking about running out of space at all.

This device offers wi-fi capability (which it can share with other devices acting as a modem or router), LTE-A 4G super quick data connection and also HSPA+ connectivity (a bit slower 4G type) and 3G fast connectivity, supported by HSDPA and HSUPA technologies. This cellphone uses a Nano SIM card for GSM carriers.

The S9 features two cameras, a 12 mega-pixels back-facing camera and an 8 MP front facing camera. this phone's back-facing camera lens has a maximum F1.5 aperture so it can capture clear photos even in low-light conditions. It can also capture 3840x2160 4K videos at 60 fps, and slow-motion videos in 1280x720 (HD) at 960 fps. This camera also features auto-focus and time lapse video.

This phone also features plenty of great features such as Fingerprint Identification, Facial recognition to unlock, Wireless charger compatibility, NFC, Bluetooth, GPS (Global Positioning System) and FM Radio, and lots of sensors like Light Sensor, Proximity Sensor, Accelerometer, Gyroscope, Barometer and Compass.

The S9 packs a large 3000 mAh Li - Ion non-replaceable battery that can keep this cellphone running for many hours without charging it. An issue to consider is that this cellphone's battery isn't removable so you can't buy a new battery when it begins to last shorter, whereas with so much capacity you will probably discard this cellphone before that becomes an issue.

Samsung is offering the S9 for just $ 158, which is a quite low price for comparing with other similar phones. This phone is very appropiate for you it doesn't matter whether you want this phone to take many pictures, will use it for work, want this phone to play games or want a phone mainly for internet broswing and social networks.
