Samsung's Galaxy S9 is Now Available for Pre-Order


In addition, the Galaxy S9 and S9+ are protected by Knox 3.1, Samsung's latest defense-grade security platform.

Samsung has started taking pre-orders for these latest flagship phones from their own website. Fortunately, for T-Mobile customers, the carrier will charge the same thing Samsung does, or $30/month for 24 months for either phone plus a $120 down payment on the S9 Plus.

Well if you want a dirty smartphone with fingerprints all over its glass body along with the oily body, go get your S9.

Coming to the specifications, the Galaxy S9 has a 5.8-inch Super AMOLED display, comes with 4GB RAM and a single rear 12MP rear camera with dual variable aperture of f/1.5 and f/2.4.

We earlier discussed some reasons that why we don't recommend people to buy these new flagships at the time of launch and now we know more about the devices as reviews have started coming, hence this is a flawless time to talk negatively. If you're constantly switching between your calendar and your email, you can set a shortcut that will automatically open both apps in multi-window, letting you drag and drop between them easily. Unfortunately, while both these flagships do provide support for 4K video recording, they falter in a way that you will find out very soon.

The camera specs differ on the Samsung Galaxy S9 and S9+. The enhanced performance and efficiency come from the Snapdragon 845 and Exynos 9910, depending on where you buy the phone.

The Skyfall Series exemplifies the sheer strength of what Caseology offers in crystal clear protective cases for Galaxy S9 and S9+. While the iPhone can do 1080p video at 60 fps, the Galaxy S9 can record Full HD at 240 fps.

There are a couple caveats, though. The camera also gets Dual-pixel PDAF on the main camera module.

The S9 beats its competitors, chiefly the iPhone X if we're honest, in almost every aspect, from color accuracy to custom settings. DisplayMate and DxOMark, two of the most respected names in smartphone testing, have put the Galaxy S9's display and camera through a litany of paces, and the results might surprise some Apple fans. The S9 has a 12MP camera with a dual aperture setup that alternates between f/1.5 and f/2.4 depending on ambient light conditions.

Samsung Galaxy S9+ is available at At&T for $915. I'd take that over Studio Lighting any day. Nearly all phones with fast wireless charging usually have glass backs, but a glass back also makes the phone easier to break, with a higher fix cost.

One of the few areas where innovation isn't slowing down is in smartphone cameras.

Also listed is the advance payment which telcos would often require when signing up for a contract plan. These tests include 1500 images taken from the smartphones and more than 2 hours of video both in controlled lab environments and in natural indoor and outdoor scenes.

Samsung has also brought in AR Emoji to compete with Apple's Animoji. But that's something you'll have to judge for yourself.
