Samsung Galaxy S9 review: Not to be forgotten


Samsung Galaxy S9 packs a lovely display, great camera and a design that is still one of the best. It's also available at a much lower price than the S10.

Fantastic display;Feels great;Much improved speakers

Average battery life;Dual-sensor only on Plus model;Some lag with Samsung’s software

Samsung S9 review: a refined Android flagship with show-stealing camera


Samsung has created the most premium and polished phone of 2018

12MP rear camera with dual-aperture technology ; Still fabulous Super AMOLED 18.5:9 QHD+ screen ; AR Emoji, while not perfect, are lots of fun

Similar specs to the Galaxy S8

Samsung Galaxy S9 review


Samsung's tweaking has made the S9 one of the best Android phones around.

Superb screen for video ; Powerful performance ; Dual-aperture camera is effective ; Well built ; Great design

Audio still lacks the last word in timing

Samsung has gone down the Apple route of only making minor tweaks, but this has resulted in one of the best Android phones this year

Brilliant display ; Stereo sound is surprisingly powerful ; Curved glass and metal is very attractive ; Comfortable to use ; Super speedy and fluid performance

Battery isn't great ; Camera over-exposes highlights regularly ; AR Emoji and Bixby need a lot of improving ; Expensive

While it’s not perfect, the Galaxy S9 is a fantastic device. It’s got a brilliant display, great camera, brilliant performance all-round, and in a body that’s easily one of the most elegant ever released. Its stereo sound makes such a difference to...

Samsung Galaxy S9 review


The best Android phone in the world just got (slightly) better

Refined, stylish design with gorgeous curved screen ; Improved low-light camera, excellent slo-mo video ; All the features you'd want in a flagship

Improved camera still can't quite beat the best ; Hard to tell the S9 apart from the S8 ; Fingerprint sensor still a bit close to the camera

Easily the best all-round Android phone you can buy today

Samsung Galaxy S9 review


The Samsung Galaxy S9 was one of the best smartphones available. It's a phone that leads the charge where the Galaxy S8 , one of the best phones we've ever tested, left off - but it's not as much of an upgrade, even though it makes our list of the best...

Swift biometric security Awesome low-light performance Very powerful

Design is identical to S8 Some camera snaps lack vibrancy Expensive

The Samsung Galaxy S9 is a great phone, but one that didn't really kick on from the Galaxy S8, bringing a very similar design and screen to 2017's version. The improved biometrics were sorely needed, and the camera is a leap forward, but the amazing...

The Samsung Galaxy S9 is a bargain at Amazon


Last year's Samsung flagship is still a damned fine handset

Smartphones are expensive, and Samsung’s flagships are among the world’s priciest. While you can currently buy the Samsung Galaxy S10e for a very competitive £575, you can save even more by opting for last year’s Galaxy S9, which is currently going...

Samsung Galaxy S9 Review: First essential smartphone of 2018?


Samsung's 2018 flagship phone looks like a direct clone of last year's model. So is the Galaxy S9 an essential smartphone, or should you save a bit of cash and grab the S8 instead? Here's our full review.

Smart camera tech ; Premium everyday experience ; Superb performance

No real upgrade ; Pricey ; Beaten by cheaper rivals

So, should you consider buying the Galaxy S9?

Samsung Galaxy S9 review: Samsung's best-ever phone, but should you upgrade to the Galaxy S10?


The Samsung Galaxy S9 is an impressive handset, but there's not enough here to justify the steep price

Excellent low-light camera ; The fastest Android smartphone yet

Slightly worse battery life ; More expensive than Galaxy S8

That makes it hard to wholeheartedly recommend the Galaxy S9, either as a general-purpose smartphone or as a best-in-class camera phone. There’s some impressive technology here, but Samsung needs to offer something more to justify a wallet-wilting £739.
