New speakers are amazing ; Great camera performance in low light ; Great design and display ; Out-of-the-box functionality surpasses rivals ; 3.5mm headphone socket

Samsung Galaxy S9 Plus review


Samsung's best phone with a big screen and superb camera

Impressive low-light camera ; Better-placed fingerprint sensor ; Loud stereo speakers

Not all that different to S8 Plus ; AR Emoji mode is overrated ; Pricey for a phone that feels too similar to last year

Although the Samsung Galaxy S9 Plus looks a lot like its predecessor, Samsung has added some new features and as fine tuned it enough to turn one of the best Android phones of last year into an even better one. Most complains from last year's phone has...

Samsung Galaxy S9 Plus


Samsung Galaxy S9 Plus review, price and release date: Tweaks in all the right places for Samsung's latest flagship smartphone

Feels great for a big phone ; The OLED display is great and highly customisable ; Numerous camera features on offer

Iterative upgrade ; AR Emoji are just bad ; Some lag with Samsung’s software

Aside from the overall size, price and camera, the biggest difference between the two Galaxy S9 flagships are the size of their batteries. The 3500mAh cell inside the Galaxy S9 Plus is a nice upgrade over the 3000mAh cell in the regular S9, but...

Samsung Galaxy S9+ review


Small tweaks and upgrades make an already excellent phone even better

The best screen on a smartphone ; Versatile dual-lens camera ; Fantastic performance ; Eye-catching design

Little has changed from last year

More evolution than revolution, but that’s still enough to make the S9+ the best big Android phone you can buy today

Samsung Galaxy S9+ review


Samsung's plus-sized S9 sees double with a dual lens, dual aperture camera

Stellar screen ; Top-notch camera ; Incredibly powerful

Almost unchanged design ; Uncomfortable to hold for some

A big, blockbuster phone that awesome at pretty much everything. It’ll probably be too big for most people though.

Samsung Galaxy S9 and S9 Plus review: Excellent, not monumental


Despite not feeling like a major improvement over last year's flagship, the Galaxy S9 is still one of the best phones around.

Dual Aperture effective in low light ; Excellent cameras overall ; Speedy performance ; Long-lasting battery

Not a major improvement over last generation

Samsung Galaxy S9 Plus review


The Galaxy S9 Plus is a masterpiece.

Gorgeous design ; Brilliant, colorful display ; Feature-packed camera ; Excellent low-light photo quality ; Good sound from stereo speakers

Battery life could be better ; Live Focus produces fuzzy photos

The Galaxy S9 Plus brings a refined design, but it’s the ‘reimagined’ camera that makes this phone stand out, and worth the high price tag.

Samsung Galaxy S9+


It's not revolutionary, but the Samsung Galaxy S9+ sets the bar for smartphones in 2018, with the best hardware features you can get.

Gorgeous screen. Beautiful body. Spectacular network performance. Dual main cameras with excellent low-light capture. Loud audio.

Camera software oversharpens images. AR Emoji and Bixby disappoint.

I don't think the past 12 months make a great innovation year for smartphones. That doesn't mean we're seeing bad phones, it just means we aren't seeing game-changing phones. With in-display fingerprint sensors coming at the end of 2018 and 5G networks...
