Samsung Galaxy S9 review: A refined evolution


While it's not perfect, the Galaxy S9 is a fantastic device. It's got a brilliant display, great camera, brilliant performance all-round, and in a

Brilliant display ; Stereo sound is surprisingly powerful ; Curved glass and metal is very attractive ; Comfortable to use ; Super speedy and fluid performance

Battery isn't great ; Camera over-exposes highlights regularly ; AR Emoji and Bixby need a lot of improving ; Expensive

While it’s not perfect, the Galaxy S9 is a fantastic device. It’s got a brilliant display, great camera, brilliant performance all-round, and in a body that’s easily one of the most elegant ever released. Its stereo sound makes such a difference to...

Samsung Galaxy S9 review


Where the S8 was great, the S9 is only fine

Swift biometric security ; Awesome low-light performance ; The most powerful Android phone out

Design is identical to S8 ; Some camera snaps lack vibrancy ; Expensive

The Samsung Galaxy S9 is a great phone, but one that hasn't really kicked on from the Galaxy S8, bringing a very similar design and screen to 2017's version. The improved biometrics were sorely needed, and the camera is a leap forward, but the amazing...

Samsung Galaxy S9 initial review: A refined evolution


Pick up the Samsung Galaxy S9 and you might not know you're holding Samsung's latest phone: from the exterior this phone looks almost exactly the same

In many ways the Samsung Galaxy S9 is a repeat performance of the Galaxy S8 and that's no bad thing. Samsung's great phone from 2017 is back and better than before.

Samsung Galaxy S9 Review: Is the Android phone of the year already here?


Samsung Galaxy S9 review, price and release date: Samsung's got some big competition from Apple but how does the Galaxy S9 compare?

Fantastic display ; Feels great ; Much improved speakers

Average battery life ; Dual-sensor only on Plus model ; Some lag with Samsung’s software

Battery life on the Samsung Galaxy S9 is almost exactly the same as last year’s S8. Even with the switch to a more efficient mobile chip, it’s a shame Samsung hasn’t really been able to squeeze any more juice from the 3000mAh battery.

Samsung Galaxy S9 review


The best Android phone in the world just got (slightly) better

Refined, stylish design with gorgeous curved screen ; Improved low-light camera, excellent slo-mo video ; All the features you'd want in a flagship

Improved camera still can't quite beat the best ; Hard to tell the S9 apart from the S8 ; Fingerprint sensor still a bit close to the camera

Easily the best all-round Android phone you can buy today

Samsung has just announced the new Galaxy S9, its latest high-end flagship smartphone. It looks very similar to last year's Galaxy S8, but the manufacturer says that improvements have been made across the board. Are these changes enough to warrant...

Samsung Galaxy S9 review: Very nearly brilliant


A great smartphone, but the Samsung Galaxy S9's improvements over the S8 are marginal, and it's much more expensive as well

Taken as a whole, the Samsung Galaxy S9 is impressive. It is better overall than the S8, despite slightly weaker battery life and a rather odd implementation of its low-light camera algorithms. It’s faster, the screen is just as good, it has better...

Review: Samsung Galaxy S9


The Samsung Galaxy S9 is a continuation of the path the South Korean company started last year with the Galaxy S8. Both devices are very similar and nearly identical in look and feel.

Improved camera chops and a wider range of Bixby functionality further separate the Galaxy S9 from the herd.
