Samsung Galaxy S9+ review

by admin March 14, 2018 at 3:04 pm

Flip them over and you get a better idea of what youu2019re working with. There are two camera lenses now, aligned in a vertical configuration u2014 and the fingerprint reader has moved down below. The company is continuing to tweak its imaging system and responding to user feedback over little complaints from the last gen. People kept putting their finger on the camera as they fumbled to wake up their phone, so Samsung fixed it.n

In spite of what Samsung may tell you, the S9 isnu2019t a reimagining of anything. Itu2019s a refinement of the leading Android handset. Thereu2019s not enough here to compel most S8 owners to upgrade, but if youu2019re due for a refresh, Samsungu2019s handset is still the one to beat.n

If I was a lazier writer, Iu2019d recommend you read the design section of my S8 review so we could all just skip ahead to the new bits. Still, Iu2019ll try to keep this bit pretty short, because weu2019ve got a lot of camera to talk about in the paragraphs ahead. The long and short of it is that before the iPhone X, there was the Infinity Display.n

It didnu2019t quite do away with the bezel as we know it, but the design, combined with Samsungu2019s longtime love of curved glass, brought us right up to the edge. Samsung openly mocked the iPhone Xu2019s notch once again at last weeku2019s unveil. It wasnu2019t subtle, but then, Samsung rarely is. Apple may have had the last week at MWC when practically every other company happily embraced a notch-filled future.n

Until phone companies come up with a better solution to the phone and front-facing camera conundrum (I keep saying u201cban selfies,u201d but no one ever listens to me), itu2019s either going to be a notch or bezel. Samsungu2019s dug its heels into the latter, shaving an almost imperceptible amount off its predecessoru2019s. Perhaps itu2019s the ultimate sign post of the state of the mobile industry that the worldu2019s largest companies are battling over that reaming few millimeters.n

Samsungu2019s other big Apple mocking moment was a jab at the headphone jack. The iPhone ditched it and never looked back. Perhaps itu2019s stubbornness thatu2019s kept it on Samsungu2019s flagships, as many other companies have gone Appleu2019s route. When I spoke to ZTE ahead of MWC, a rep for the company admitted that the end of the jack is all but an inevitability at this point. But honestly, can you blame Samsung for holding on? After several generations of openly mocking Apple, giving in would be a bit embarrassing.n

Of course, that kind of about-face shouldnu2019t get in the way of moving forward. Remember when Steve Jobs said u201cno one is going to buy a big phone?u201d Or heck, when Google made fun of the end of the headphone jack a generation before dropping it? But carrying the S9+ around for the past week reminds me that I still miss the option.n

I bought a cheap pair of wired headphones for the plane ride home. Thereu2019s still something to be said for the simple plug and play capability there. Bluetooth headphones have come a long way in the past couple of years, but dealing with battery issues and the uncertainty of pairing is still a headache. Sometimes you just want to plug in a pair of wired headphones and be done with it.n

The back of the phone is glass once again. Because thatu2019s all the rage, and also, itu2019s a lot easier on wireless charging. Samsung gave us a black one to go with our S8+ plus. The new purple is pretty eye-catching, but beggars canu2019t be choosers, I guess. And besides, even with Gorilla Glass, Iu2019m going to strongly advice that you think about picking up a case for that $720/$840 phone.n

That said, Samsung has made some improvements to the phoneu2019s overall durability. This isnu2019t the CAT phone, sure, but every little bit helps. The company has reportedly swapped the old aluminum for a stronger variety and made the phone sightly thicker and heavier in the process. But honestly, as with the bezels, youu2019re really not going to notice the difference.n

""

[Left: Galaxy S9+, Right: iPhone 8 Plus]The nice thing about getting the review unit in Barcelona is that I was going to be taking a lot of pictures anyway. The downside is that I became that annoying American tourist who takes smartphone shots of all his meals. I know, I know. But it was for work, I swear.n

The reimagined part of the whole u201ccamera, reimaginedu201d bit is improved low-light shooting u2014 a topic that has quickly become the next big battlefield for smartphone makers. And good for them, really. The inability to take half-decent photos in less than ideal settings is a big sticking point for a lot of these companies. Honestly, what percentage of smartphone shots do you take in perfect lighting? A huge percentage of these are snapped in places like bars and restaurants.n

For this latest trick, the company actually borrowed from, of all places, its latest flip phone. But since the W2018 is like $2,000 and only available in Asia, youu2019re going to have to settle for the companyu2019s new variable aperture on the S9. The dual aperture flips between u00a0f/1.5 / f/2.4 u2014 what that means, in the simplest terms, is that itu2019s able to let more light into the lens in a dark setting. The aperture physically opens up to accomplish this. In fact, if you take a close look at the camera, you can see that change take place.n

Shortly after Samsung announced the technology, Sony made mention that it was working a new super-low-light technology. Of course, it will be a while before that comes to the companyu2019s phones u2014 and even longer until it arrives on phones people actually buy. Meantime, the S9 represents a solid upgrade from a phone industry thatu2019s largely neglected low-light shooting.n

We happened to have an iPhone 8 Plus and Pixel 2 at our disposal and did some low-light shooting in bars around Barcelona last week (again, research). The Samsung S9+u2019s results are impressive. Itu2019s not quite night and day u2014 but itu2019s close. The S9 lets in considerably more light and is capable of taking decent pictures in settings that utterly stumped the competition.nn

Scrolling back through the photos taken last week itu2019s hard to tell which were snapped in a dim bar u2014 though, in some cases, the white balance does seem a bit off. Even so, the improved camera goes a long a way toward reducing the noise you get in the same setting on most phones. If this means fewer people will be firing up their camera flash in bars, I think we all can agree that this is a win-win.n

The other big physical improvement on the camera side was borrowed from another one of Samsungu2019s phones: the Note 8. One of the key differences between the S9 and S9+ that justifies that $140 price gulf is the inclusion of a second telephoto lens in addition to the standard wide-angle. As with that handset, zoom in enough and it switches over to the second lens.n

The difference between digital and optical zoom is huge, and this will go a long way toward improving the quality on those tight shots. Thatu2019s probably not enough to warrant the upgrade to the S9+ alone, but it goes a long way toward giving the Galaxy one of the best imaging experiences in all of smartphones. Thereu2019s a reason the handset just topped DxOMarku2019s camera ratings.n

Is creepy an emotion?n

""n

The camerau2019s most practical improvements are on the hardware side. But the software upgrades bring a lot more proverbial flash. Take AR Emojis. Given how much the S9 looks like its predecessor, itu2019s easy to see why the company has leaned so heavily on the new feature in its messaging. That said, Iu2019m not entirely sure thatu2019s the best idea. AR Emojis are creepy. I said it before, and Iu2019ll say it again. Itu2019s the first thing I thought when I saw them, and after spending a week with the phone, my opinions havenu2019t changed.n

Samsung got knocked a bit here for cribbing the feature from Apple. The Animoji comparisons were inevitable. And, indeed, all phone makers u201cborrowu201d from one another. Welcome to consumer electronics. Of course, Samsungu2019s put its own unique spin on the feature, and therein lies the creepiness. Take a selfie, and the company builds a customized emoji, using 100 facial data points.n

""n

From there, you customize the hair, clothing and add glasses if you wear them. The selections are still pretty limited on that front, but Iu2019d expect Samsung will add more as it goes along. Once youu2019re all good and saved, the system automically generates nearly 20 animated GIFs representing various Anime-style emotional states, intended to be shared over social media. I donu2019t see myself ever using them un-ironically, but then Iu2019ve come to accept when Iu2019m not the target demographic for a thing.n

Itu2019s kind of like Nintendou2019s Mii — if they suddenly decided to be less cute and set up shop smack in the middle of the uncanny valley. Itu2019s an admirable idea, using the companyu2019s camera technology to create something more customized than the 16 Apple currently offers. But for one thing, the scans donu2019t offer enough distinction from person to person. And for another, Iu2019m not sure machines can be relied upon to combine real-world 3D imagery and cartoons into something not creepy. Listen, weu2019ve all seen Blade Runner here. Robots are creepy.n

""n

There are other default emojis u2014 a rabbit, a cat and a weird box-headed monster thingy. None match Appleu2019s offerings for general adorableness, but I wouldnu2019t worry too much for Samsung. The company scored a major coup by striking a deal with Disney, in spite of the companyu2019s longtime alliance (and board member swapping) with Apple.n

Along with the Star Wars AR it brought to the Pixel 2, Disney seems to be trying hard not to play favorites. That will ultimately mean great things for AR Emoji adoption, assuming, of course, that theyu2019re implemented in a less creepy way than its current offering. Iu2019ve got faith in Disneyu2019s tight grip on intellectual property u2014 theyu2019ll likely look good, which will ultimately mean users will continue to engage with the tech after the purchase of the phone.n

Thereu2019s no date on arrival, but the offering will include Mickey and Minnie, along with some Pixar names. The Incredibles flashed on the screen u2014 no surprise, given that a sequel is due out in July. Itu2019s a nice marketing play for Disney, leveraging the flagship from the worldu2019s largest phone maker.n

Hopefully the company wonu2019t regret it too much when online videos with the companyu2019s iconic mouse saying truly filthy things surface on social media immediately after launch. Iu2019m not saying Iu2019m looking forward to it, Iu2019m just saying that Iu2019ve learned to expect the absolute worst from my fellow humans.n

Taking it slown

""n

Sony took another not so subtle dig at its press conference, noting that it had Super Slow Motion on its phones a year before Samsung. But again, the key differentiator here is the fact that people actually, you know, buy Samsung phones. As such, this is the first time a lot of people are going to get their hands on the technology.n

During a briefing, Samsung compared the tech to The Matrixu2019s u201cbullet time.u201d This is not that, of course. For one thing, itu2019s just the one camera. But it is, in fact, very neat. Honestly, itu2019s the most fun I had testing the phone out over the past week. Like any good new camera toy, it makes you hyper aware of your surroundings as you look for little things in life that might look cool, slowed down.n

The new tech is a pretty radical update over Samsungu2019s earlier slow motion, bumping it from 240 to 960 frames per second. Thatu2019s 32 times slower than regular footage and four times slower than standard slow motion. Youu2019ll invariably find yourself shooting all sorts of weird mundanity you wouldnu2019t think to video in a million years at regular speed: water pouring into a glass, pigeons on the street. Itu2019s a good way to instantly look like a weirdo to strangers, but screw ’em, itu2019s for science.n

By default, the feature sports a small square in the middle that automatically fires up Super Slow Motion when it detects action. Results will vary in that bit, depending on a number of factors, including how far away the action is. Itu2019s nice to have the setting to fall back on, so you can keep the phone steady with two hands, but more often than not, I found myself just doing it manually.n

""n

Once shot, the phone packages the video nicely, creating three separate looping GIFs and adding royalty free music to the main video. Honestly, though, they all end up looking super moody and I just want to add that u201cMad Worldu201d cover from Donnie Dark to really complete the package.n

The fact that light flickers at certain frequency only adds to the effect. Shooting in Heathrow proved next to impossible under the oppressive airport lights. Low light, on the other hand, was a non-starter. The feature requires a lot of light to work properly, so donu2019t expect to go shooting any Super Slow Motion in restaurants or bars.n

A few other features are worth calling out here. Food Mode offers some nice beauty shots of your lunch. Iu2019m generally happy how these turned out, though some of my co-workers found them to be a bit oversaturated. Auto-focus speed has improved, as promised, and stickers are a fun augmented reality addition to the offering.n

Hi Bixbyn

""n

Samsungu2019s been on something of an AI shopping spree over the past couple of years. Even so, the companyu2019s smart assistant has had a tough time playing catch up to Alexa, Siri and the rest. Even so, Bixby stumbled pretty hard out of the gate. Samsung needed to deliver a compelling reason to choose its offering over Androidu2019s default, Google Assistant. Instead, Bixby was half-baked when it arrived on the S8.n

The companyu2019s made some key in-roads since then, including, most notably, the eventual arrival of voice functionality. Certainly Bixby has some grand ambitions, fueled by acquisitions like Viv. But that kind of thing doesnu2019t amount to a whole lot if your assistant isnu2019t suited to day-to-day activities.n

On that front, Bixbyu2019s still got a lot of growing to do. We sat in a circle at our Airbnb in Barcelona, asking a spate of questions to Bixby, Siri, Assistant and Cortana (TechCrunch knows how to party), and Bixby had trouble competing. In general, those other assistants are better suited to answer simple questions.n

""n

I also found myself flipping Bixbyu2019s voice recognition to its highest sensitivity. As the company notes, the more sensitive you make it, the more likely it is to get triggered accidentally, but I found that was the best way to ensure a response.n

Of course, Bixbyu2019s much more tightly integrated into the daily Galaxy experience. A right swipe on the home page will bring up the Bixby landing page, which aggregates all sorts of content from the phone, including social media messages, health stats and local offerings from Maps. Of course, this also can be accessed via the devoted Bixby button, which is back for some reason.n

The streamu2019s not particularly useful in and of itself. Itu2019s really not too dissimilar from any number of content aggregation streams countless manufacturers have built into Android in an attempt to differentiate themselves from the competition. It is, however, a handy way of keeping track all of the various third-party apps youu2019ve integrated into the service. Also, Samsung has thankfully finally unified all of its myriad smart home offerings into a single, easy to use Smart Things app, similar to Appleu2019s Home offering.n

Where the assistant does manage to stand out from the competition (save, in some cases, for Google) is with Bixby Vision. The feature isnu2019t really fully integrated into Bixby u2014 in fact, it seems more like a branding opportunity than anything for the company. But name aside, itu2019s a really cool feature with a broad range of applications.n

Text was the one I was most looking forward to, wandering the streets of Catalonia. When itu2019s working perfectly, the phone harnesses Googleu2019s smarts to create an augmented reality translation that lays over real-world text. Really, really neat. The system works with 54 input languages and 150u00a0output.n

""n

Live translation is spotty. It understandably takes a bit of time, as it has to send and receive information from the cloud. The text overlays also look a bit like a ransom note, but beggars canu2019t be choosers for a feature like this. I found the feature to be more miss than hit in augmented reality mode, so ultimately I ended up using the phone to convert signage into text and translate it that way. Itu2019s a longer route, but ultimately a lot more helpful.n

The Not Hot Dog-esque Food feature is impressive, as well, identifying food stuffs and giving you a rough approximation that you can add to the Samsung Health app. Like translation, itu2019s similar to something Google offers up in Lens. Thereu2019s also a Makeup feature that overlays eye shadows and lipsticks from companies like Sephora to see what you look like in a new shade.n

Both are extremely impressive showcases for technology, but ultimately feel more novel than useful.n

Screen timen

""n

The S9u2019s display is the same resolution as its predecessor u2014 a Quad HD 2,960 x 1,440. That works out to 570 PPI on the 5.8-inch S9 and 529 PPI on the 6.2-inch S9+. Attempting to top that resolution is a foolu2019s errand, but the company that also supplies displays to its chief competition happily made some tweaks to the screenu2019s color accuracy. The OLED recently took DisplayMateu2019s top honors, and rightfully so. Itu2019s lovely.n

The speakers have been souped up, as well u2014 a welcome addition, given that the feature so often gets short shrift from phone makers. The volume gets much louder, and when you flip the phone into landscape mode, the earpiece doubles as a stereo speaker. Of course, the same disclaimer that you get on all phone speakers is needed here: Itu2019s fine for watching YouTube videos, but youu2019re going to want some headphones if you plan to listen for any extended period of time.n

Thankfully, Samsungu2019s acquisition of Harman means the phone ships with a pair of AKG earbuds with silicone tips that are way, way more comfortable than Appleu2019s default pair. And yes, no adapter required.n

The phone includes all of its predecessoru2019s various biometric unlocking options, but adds Intelligent Scan to the mix. The feature combines iris and face scanning into one, defaulting to the best option based on light level. It starts with your face and moves to the eyeballs if the lighting sucks.n

It works a lot better than relying on iris alone, but as has been noted, itu2019s not secure enough to tie to things like mobile payment. And if youu2019re really concerned with the potential for other people to get into your phone, Iu2019d recommend other methods.n

Here in the States, youu2019ll be getting the Qualcomm Snapdragon 845 u2014 a feature thatu2019s likely behind the companyu2019s decision to announce the phone at Mobile World Congress last week, in order to stay ahead of the competition. Both models ship with 64GB of storage, augmentable via a microSD chip (up to a whopping 400GB). The S9 sports 4GB of RAM and the S9+ bumps that up by 2GB, which should be more than enough power for most users.n

Samsung continues to be cautious on the battery front after flying too close to the sun, once upon a time. The S9 sports a 3,000mAh unit, while the S9+u2019s is 3,500. Not the largest around, but I was able to effectively get nearly two days of use on a single charge for the S9+.n

Re-imagineeringn

""n

As ever, Samsungu2019s additions are some combination of genuinely useful and some u201cwhy notu201d features. The S9u2019s got enough small but meaningful tweaks to keep the device at the top of the Android heap, and perhaps best of all, Samsungu2019s managed to price it at $720/$840 u2014 not cheap by any stretch of the imagination, but considerably less expensive than the iPhone Xu2019s $1,000 price tag.n

Bixby still needs a lot of love and those AR Emojis are, to borrow a phrase from my people in Northern California, u201chella creepy.u201d But all of those new software additions are nothing if not ambitious and point to a company trying out some genuinely interesting stuff in spaces like augmented reality. Theyu2019re not all hits, but theyu2019re never not interesting.n

As far as upgrading from the S8 u2014 unless youu2019ve found yourself in some sort of Brewsteru2019s Millions-style scenario where you suddenly have to part with a lot of cash with comedic consequences, Iu2019m going to say hold off on that one. For everyone else ready to upgrade to a shiny new Android handset, however, the S9 maintains Samsungu2019s spot at the top of the heap.n”,”protected”:false},”excerpt”:”rendered”:”

You probably donu2019t need a 4,000-word review to tell you that the Galaxy S9+ is a good phone. Now that everyoneu2019s got all of the Note 7 jokes mostly out of their system, we can mostly agree that Samsung makes good phones. The S8 was great, and the S9 builds on that success in a number of ways.n”,”protected”:false,”author”:699688,”featured_media”:1604426,”comment_status”:”open”,”ping_status”:”closed”,”sticky”:false,”template”:””,”format”:”standard”,”meta”:”outcome”:””,”status”:””,”crunchbase_tag”:0,”relegenceEntities”:[],”relegenceSubjects”:[],”categories”:[449223024,449557028,449557092],”tags”:[32518,576603105,38616],”crunchbase_tag”:[],”tc_stories_tax”:[],”tc_event”:[],”shortlink”:”http://tcrn.ch/2Flvq1f”,”videoData”:”provider”:”o2″,”location”:”entrybody”,”rapidData”:”pt”:””,”pct”:””,”featured”:true,”subtitle”:”Are camera improvements and AR tricks enough to keep Samsung at the top of the heap?”,”fundingRound”:false,”seoTitle”:””,”seoDescription”:””,”tc_unified_tagging”:[“tag”:”term_id”:38616,”name”:”smartphones”,”slug”:”smartphones”,”term_group”:0,”term_taxonomy_id”:12701,”taxonomy”:”post_tag”,”description”:””,”parent”:0,”count”:575,”filter”:”raw”,”cb_tags”:[],”tag”:”term_id”:32518,”name”:”Samsung”,”slug”:”samsung”,”term_group”:0,”term_taxonomy_id”:12043,”taxonomy”:”post_tag”,”description”:””,”parent”:0,”count”:1948,”filter”:”raw”,”cb_tags”:[],”tag”:”term_id”:576603105,”name”:”samsung galaxy s9″,”slug”:”samsung-galaxy-s9″,”term_group”:0,”term_taxonomy_id”:159239,”taxonomy”:”post_tag”,”description”:””,”parent”:0,”count”:4,”filter”:”raw”,”cb_tags”:[]],”associatedEvent”:null,”event”:null,”authors”:[699688],”hideFeaturedImage”:false,”relatedArticles”:[],”_links”:”self”:[“href”:”https://techcrunch.com/wp-json/wp/v2/posts/1603793″],”collection”:[“href”:”https://techcrunch.com/wp-json/wp/v2/posts”],”about”:[“href”:”https://techcrunch.com/wp-json/wp/v2/types/post”],”version-history”:[“href”:”https://techcrunch.com/wp-json/wp/v2/posts/1603793/revisions”],”authors”:[“embeddable”:true,”href”:”https://techcrunch.com/wp-json/tc/v1/users/699688″],”replies”:[“embeddable”:true,”count”:2,”href”:”https://techcrunch.com/wp-json/wp/v2/comments?post=1603793&order=asc&tc_hierarchical=flat”],”author”:[“embeddable”:true,”href”:”https://techcrunch.com/wp-json/tc/v1/users/699688″],”wp:featuredmedia”:[“embeddable”:true,”href”:”https://techcrunch.com/wp-json/wp/v2/media/1604426″],”wp:attachment”:[“href”:”https://techcrunch.com/wp-json/wp/v2/media?parent=1603793″,”embeddable”:true,”href”:”https://techcrunch.com/wp-json/wp/v2/media/1604407″,”embeddable”:true,”href”:”https://techcrunch.com/wp-json/wp/v2/media/1604408″,”embeddable”:true,”href”:”https://techcrunch.com/wp-json/wp/v2/media/1604409″,”embeddable”:true,”href”:”https://techcrunch.com/wp-json/wp/v2/media/1604410″,”embeddable”:true,”href”:”https://techcrunch.com/wp-json/wp/v2/media/1604411″,”embeddable”:true,”href”:”https://techcrunch.com/wp-json/wp/v2/media/1604412″,”embeddable”:true,”href”:”https://techcrunch.com/wp-json/wp/v2/media/1604413″,”embeddable”:true,”href”:”https://techcrunch.com/wp-json/wp/v2/media/1604414″,”embeddable”:true,”href”:”https://techcrunch.com/wp-json/wp/v2/media/1604415″,”embeddable”:true,”href”:”https://techcrunch.com/wp-json/wp/v2/media/1604416″,”embeddable”:true,”href”:”https://techcrunch.com/wp-json/wp/v2/media/1604417″],”wp:term”:[“taxonomy”:”category”,”embeddable”:true,”href”:”https://techcrunch.com/wp-json/wp/v2/categories?post=1603793″,”taxonomy”:”post_tag”,”embeddable”:true,”href”:”https://techcrunch.com/wp-json/wp/v2/tags?post=1603793″,”taxonomy”:”_tc_cb_tag_taxonomy”,”embeddable”:true,”href”:”https://techcrunch.com/wp-json/wp/v2/crunchbase_tag?post=1603793″,”taxonomy”:”tc_stories_tax”,”embeddable”:true,”href”:”https://techcrunch.com/wp-json/wp/v2/tc_stories_tax?post=1603793″,”taxonomy”:”tc_event”,”embeddable”:true,”href”:”https://techcrunch.com/wp-json/wp/v2/tc_event?post=1603793″],”curies”:[“name”:”wp”,”href”:”https://api.w.org/rel”,”templated”:true],”_embedded”:{“authors”:[“id”:699688,”name”:”Brian Heater”,”url”:””,”description”:””,”link”:”https://techcrunch.com/author/bheater/”,”slug”:”bheater”,”avatar_urls”:”24″:”https://secure.gravatar.com/avatar/69b6dc548d05dedd0132f12e075bf7de?s=24&d=identicon&r=g”,”48″:”https://secure.gravatar.com/avatar/69b6dc548d05dedd0132f12e075bf7de?s=48&d=identicon&r=g”,”96″:”https://secure.gravatar.com/avatar/69b6dc548d05dedd0132f12e075bf7de?s=96&d=identicon&r=g”,”links”:”twitter”:”https://twitter.com/bheater”,”linkedin”:”http://www.linkedin.com/pub/brian-heater/1/a92/94″,”crunchbase”:”https://www.crunchbase.com/person/brian-heater”,”position”:”Hardware Editor”,”cbDescription”:”
