Samsung Galaxy S9+ Review: Overrated In Many Ways

MWC 2018's big launches: Galaxy S9, ZenFone 5 & more

The Samsung Galaxy S9 + will come with an AKG headphone that looks cheap but is actually way better than most of the stock headphones out there so that is great. So, the final results are based on exhaustive tests rather than just camera specifications. Below we are going to write down the compression of iPhone X, Google Pixel 2 XL, and Galaxy S9+ so you can read it.

So, how did Samsung beat the iPhone X in DxOMark's tests? There's a dual camera (12MP + 12MP) at the rear and an 8MP camera at the front. It's one of the first smartphones to use a variable aperture mechanism in its camera, giving the user a guaranteed appreciable performance in most lighting conditions - no doubt the S9 managed to carve a record-breaking score of 99 out of 100 on DxOMark's mobile photography rating scale. However, 4K video recording taxes the internals of any smartphone, which is why smartphone heat when the camera is used extensively. On the front, there's an 8MP camera for taking selfies.

The secondary camera module comes with a 2x telephoto lens along with a f/2.4 aperture. Both the lenses support optical image stabilization.

Now, as you all may know that back in September 2017 iPhone X launched in the market. However, the overall scores don't give a clear picture because they can't help you determine the best camera for your needs.

The iPhone X had scored 101 points in still photography and a lackluster 89 points in video shooting. However, it should be noted that this number has no upper limit (the Galaxy S9's still image rating is 104). In conclusion, DxOMark says that Samsung's new flagship phone "sets the pace" for new camera phones this 2018.

The Galaxy S9 main and secondary cameras are both rated at 12 megapixels. The option of switching to the extra wide aperture of f/1.5 lets the smartphone capture crisp images even in extremely dimly-lit conditions. Its highlighted strengths include good exposures, accurate color rendering, good detail with low noise and a natural-looking bokeh effect, among others. For instance, they test smartphone cameras using default settings, which means they ignore features like 4K recording, slow-motion, and panorama mode.

As far as the changes are concerned, we have known that the Galaxy S Plus variant comes with the bigger display than the S variant which is the case with Galaxy S9 Plus and S9 as well.
