Digit Verdict: Samsung Galaxy A9 2018 128GB (Samsung Galaxy A9s) Review

By Subhrojit Mallick

All things considered, the Samsung Galaxy A9 is reliable enough for the performance, but doesn’t really justify the high price tag it comes with. Samsung hyped up the camera to such an extent that we expected the four-camera stack to perform exceptionally well, even better than what others like the OnePlus 6T and the Asus Zenfone 5z offers in that price range. But that’s not the case as several glaring compromises take away heavily from the imaging experience. However, Samsung has ensured the top-of-the-line A-series phone will grab eyeballs and manage to stand out among other similarly designed phones. The colour treatment and especially the display are the real reasons to buy this phone, but then again, if you have Rs 34,000 to spare, it’s better to settle for a high-end flagship like the Asus Zenfone 5z or the Honor 10 or even pay a little extra and get the OnePlus 6T.

    Guys, amazing product from Samsung. Picture quality is too good. Screen is little bigger in size though, but is worth the spend.

  • Waste of Money
    Gautam on Amazon.in | Jan-2020

    This phone is pits. Nearly every day you're asked to clean up the memory. Games are very difficult to download and install. Before downloads, Google Play has to be uninstalled and re-installed. There is no memo to store short notes or jot down tips. An extremely disappointing phone!

  • Great phone
    Tushar Shukla on Amazon.in | Jan-2020

    I have been using this phone for over an year now. Everything is great, except for battery life. The images are great, overall phone performance is fast with OS upgrades that happened after months of purchase. Sleek executivebusiness usage phone with good features, display, and speed. I feel people normally don't explore the extra features in the advanced settings much, if they do they will realize the phone has much more to offer, like the ambient light display while charging, intuitive screen on as you lift the phone, vibrate if there is a pending message as you lift the phone, facial display unlock etc.

  • NO GORILLA GLASS OR ANY GLASS PROTECTION
    BM on Amazon.in | Dec-2019

    NO glass protection at all, at this price! Forget about Gorilla Glass! Clearly seen from Samsung India site specs showing no mention what so ever sorry boss, not going to accept salesmen reply here saying yes to goodies. Sorry?? This cover that cover that tempered this tempered?? Why do we need the original glass to hard then? Samsung salesmen should get back really hard to their designers for throwing a crap like this at this price for them to "sell".
