Digit Verdict: Samsung Galaxy S9 Review

By Subhrojit Mallick

The Samsung Galaxy S9 is a beautiful piece of work. It’s future- forward design, the stunningly bright display and a re-engineered camera is an attractive proposition if you have the the money lying around, but it’s unlikely to deliver the satisfaction of buying something unique. Samsung’s flagship phone for the first half of 2018 is an iteration of its predecessor at best, and an underwhelming upgrade at its worst.

  • Looks best!Performance better! Battery OK!
    arun kumar on | Jul-2018

    After one month of usage I am writing this review! Design : compact for a 5.8 inch phone. It's a pleasure to handle this phone. The curved screen is gorgeous! Performance : since it has top notch specs the performance is very good!I would be happier if they have given 6gb ram! Camera: low light performance is really good because of f1.5 Battery: it lasts a full day with average use. Got screen on time of 6 to 7 hrs. It's OK for a flagship product

  • Mind-blowing purchase
    Narendra Singh Rathore on | Jun-2018

    Best ever samsung s series mobile phone. S8 is also definitely better but S9 have some advantages 1) Speed either it can reading writing to internal storage or opening apps. 2) Dual speaker setup, it's totally awesome, far better than any samsung s series device. 3) Dual aperture rear camera which have 4k 60 fps, 1080 240 fps and 720 960 fps video recording capability. 4) Little bit better in design also. Rest i believe is same as s8. Don't expect best battery life from it, sometimes i have to plugged it in a day twice. Rest is history. Go for it if you can afford, you won't regret. Note: One picture with purple flower is captured in night under dim street light, so you can get idea how promising this dual aperture is.One with eagle is captured in day in which is outside of the building and a reflective glass in between, that's why eagle won't able to see inside and i captured close shot.

  • Terrific
    Anshuman Singh on | Apr-2018

    Awesome Samsung. After using one month..... I am writing my review. Pros: 1. Screen: Amazing and Best in Market. No one can beat S9 in quality of display. 2. Processor: Seamless and Smooth. You can not find any lag. Although phone is equipped with Exynos Processor (Powered by Samsung Custom Mongoose Core) but it handles even heavy tasks smoothly. 3. Battery: Some people complaining the battery backup issue. But overall battery backup is good. There are a lot of services which are running and cause battery to drain fast. If you OFF these services then you can easily get more than one day backup. 4. Look: Nice looking phone and especially Lilac Purple is Sexy one. 5. Music: The wired earphone provided with phone is amazing (AKG Headphone). Also the Phone has Stereo Speakers. So either you are listening to music by Headphone or with Phone Speaker, music quality is amazing. 6. Camera: Probably one of the best Android Phone in terms of Camera Quality. Low Light photos are amazingly clear. 7. Unlocking: S9 has Fingerprint as well as Iris Unlock. Both are secure and fast. Iris scanner works well in all situations normally i.e. even in complete dark. Fingerprint is also fast enough Cons: 1. Front camera lags a bit in terms of Portrait mode but overall camera is decent. 2. Fast charging is not as fast as OnePlus Dash Charge. it's charging speed is 80% of dash charge. Overall S9 is a premium phone of Samsung and worth buying.

  • Facing an unexpected heating issue!!
    Sonam Goyal on | Mar-2018

    It is a great phone, Its been 3 Days since I am using it. Apart its powerful features and incredible look, I have been facing a heating issue ever since I have set up the phone - it still exists even after the software update performed yesterday. The battery is lasting 1 complete day on normal usage and taking around 1.5 hrs despite the fast charging feature. .

  • Worth the money
    Debanjan De on | Mar-2018

    My reason for choosing Galaxy S9 was to replace iPhone. Pros: Design is extremely handy. Holds very well in the hand. Display is one of the best in the market. Sound quality truly superior. Latest OS Android Oreo. Cons: Battery drains faster than expected. After using this for 2 weeks, battery is the real issue. It drains like a hose pipe. AR emoji is not perfect. Bixby is slow to respond.
