Released in 2018, the Samsung Galaxy S9 was the last Samsung smartphone to have an Infinity Display, where the edges of the display taper down to the sides. The 5.9” 1080p display is smooth and crisp and the Samsung Exynos 9810 processor boasts four times the speed of the S8’s. There’s a 12-megapixel camera with the largest aperture ever used in a smartphone at the time, allowing for awesome low light photos, and you’ll love every opportunity to take them so you can hold the premium body with its metal frame and glass build. An all-day battery life seals the deal.
Is the Galaxy S9 a good phone?
The Galaxy S9 was one of the best phones of 2018 and it remains a compelling choice today. It has a premium build, a great display and a capable camera with a low aperture for low-light shots. It’s no longer a class leader, but it offers most of what you want in a phone, making it a good overall package.
Is the S9 good in 2020?
The S9 is still a good phone in 2020. It’s a close match for the S20 in terms of speed and battery life, and it is still being updated and supported by Samsung.
