Samsung Galaxy S9+ review: the best big-screen smartphone by miles

In Others, Technology

Having ushered in a new super-slim bezel design at the beginning of 2017 with the S8, has Samsung’s new dual-aperture, dual camera enough to entice people to upgrade?

It’s fair to say the Galaxy S9+ looks practically identical to its predecessor. It’s got the same curved glass design, metal sides and lump-less camera on the back, and while it is 1.4mm shorter, 0.4mm wider and 0.4mm thicker than the S8+, you’ll need a ruler to notice.

The bezels at the top, which contain the iris scanner, front-facing camera and various sensors, are slightly smaller. Samsung didn’t adopt the “notch” that Apple used for the iPhone X and many others are expected to use this year, and I think that’s a good thing.

The large 6.2in OLED screen is absolutely gorgeous, pixel-perfect with deep blacks and rich colours, and it’s squeezed into a frame that’s surprisingly easy to hold, particularly compared to devices such as Google’s Pixel 2XL, which is 3.3mm wider. Oh, and it’s still got a headphones socket.

The S9+ is still quite big in your pocket, but one important change over last year’s model is the position of the fingerprint scanner on the back. Blaced below the rear cameras instead of alongside them means it’s so much easier to reach. It’s accurate, fast and a massive improvement.
