Although we have started to see mobile with more RAM and storage than the recent Samsung S8 Plus and even some processors that boast more cores or clock frequency we can only be delighted with the experience gained in the Samsung Galaxy S8. Hence, the very expectations set for the Samsung Galaxy S9.
In the S8, the processor itself along with the 4 GB of RAM makes good performance. Apps like HearthStone or Asphalt Xtreme are perfectly enjoyed in a device like this, something that helps the screen. And, these apps will run even smoother in the Samsung Galaxy S9. In productivity applications, we also notice that there are no problems, although we open two at a time with the option of split screen that brings us Android 7.0. We have had some forced closure punctual application, and a game never got to boot, but more seems a small problem of incompatibility with the resolution or the processor than a real impediment.
A phone like this could not lack NFC or Bluetooth 5.0 although the classic ones might miss the FM radio or the infrared sensor. Even resistance to water is a value that is appreciated. But we would like to see other features in the Samsung Galaxy S9 as well.
The fingerprint sensor is one of the key elements in Galaxy S8 as we have already mentioned and although it is effective, the position does not stand out. We have tried to activate the iris identification and although it is accurate and it works is not so fast, and in practice, we almost prefer to use the traditional PIN or unlock pattern. Samsung should polish this on their next mobiles for example Galaxy S9.
Another new feature in the S8 is a fourth physical button on the sides dedicated to Samsung’s assistant, Bixby. Although it may be useful sometimes, we believe that something as noticeable as a button should be dedicated to something more versatile, at least until Bixby develops its full potential. This feature might not be present in the Samsung Galaxy S9 as Bixby button reviews are not in favor.
For the S8, the first reason is the design and is that with the double lateral curvature is very comfortable to use and the frames have been reduced so much that virtually the entire front panel is the screen. And, without any doubts the Samsung Galaxy S9 is also going to be in the favorite list of people.
In S8, On the other hand, we have a very high resolution of 2,960 × 1,440 px that makes using any application in any situation is very different to use it in other terminals. This model does not have the same pixel density as its little brother since the diagonal is larger (6.2 “) and the solution is kept but still amazing. We hope that Samsung maintains it with the Galaxy S9 as well.
