Samsung has been a huge player in the smartphone industry for many years, never failing to release devices that incorporate the latest technology developments and specs that people are itching to get their hands on. Samsung's flagship series, the S Series, has been one of the most popular smartphone series ever, with some exceptionally powerful and sleek phones being developed in the range. 

However, when a new model is released, we can easily disregard older models as possible options when purchasing a new phone. In this blog we will be taking a look at the Samsung Galaxy S9 Plus and weighing up whether it is a good option to purchase if you are looking for a new phone. Even though the S9 Plus was released in 2018, it still has many specs and features that help it remain a powerful and extremely good phone in 2021. 

 

Samsung Galaxy S9 Plus

Display:

The Galaxy S9 Plus boasts a 6.2 inch Quad-HD Super AMOLED curved screen that incorporates Samsung's infinity display that became a hit when the S8 range was released. The screen still compares closely for clarity and performance to the latest S Series models and is an exceptional display for anyone from gamers to those who may use it as their primary device. 

The larger screen size, compared to the start S9 model, is perfect for those who use their phone as somewhat of a computer. It is a great managing emails, watching videos and even linking into those Zoom calls we have all become accustomed to. The Quad HD+ resolution at 529ppi looks pin sharp and delivers fantastically vibrant colours and a high contrast that makes images, games and media really stand out.

 

Camera: 

The Galaxy S9 Plus is the first Samsung phone to feature such a wipe aperture, giving it incredible low-light performance that outshone all the other major phones released at the same time, including the Google Pixel which also has a great camera. Its dual rear camera set-up is a huge bonus, allowing you to capture super-slow-motion videos at 960 frames per second which is a serious bonus for those who enjoy taking and creating videos on their phone. 

The phone's front facing 8MP camera is also perfect for those avid Instagramers, Tik Tok fanatics or Zoom professionals who need crystal clear picture. Although the camera is not the same as the latest high spec Galaxy S21 model, it is still an incredible camera, especially for the price you pay for a S9 Plus today! 

 

Design features:

The Galaxy S9 Plus comes in a range of colours from traditional black to a new and vibrant lilac purple. The elegant glass and metal design makes it a stylish and sleek looking phone. The fingerprint sensor is located on the back of the phone, which has been a talking point for many people with some people loving it and some people finding it uncomfortable. 

However, the iris scanner technology outweighs any issue you may have as this can eliminate the need to use the fingerprint sensor to process authentications and unlocking your device. 

Stereo speakers also feature in the S9 Plus which are 40% louder than the S8 speakers and a step ahead in clarity. It also means that when you cover the bottom speakers with your finger accidentally you won't mute all the sound out due to the earpiece speaker producing so much sound! 

 

Overall:

Although the Galaxy S9 Plus isn't the latest in the S Series range, it still boasts incredible specs for its age and due to it still running the latest software, you won't be missing out on anything in that area! It may not be the fastest phone on the market, but it is still fast, reliable and has plenty of storage for all of your favourite apps, photos and videos. 

If you are looking for a smartphone that runs the latest software, functions great and features some of the latest technology specs, while saving money, get your hands on a S9 Plus today!
