Samsung Galaxy S9 Review AT&T

AT&T.com

I’m been reviewing AT&T Samsung Galaxy phones since 2011, and this one by and far is the most amazing yet. I’m blown away by the camera abilities and beautiful fluid 4K 60fps video. But first lets get into the nuts and bolts. This isnt a putt up step up from the S8, in my opinion, its a full step worth upgrading to a much higher level quality featured phone.

The S9 has a super immaculate 5.8″ Quad HD sAMOLED screen. Its beautiful to look at and pops the images off the screen. Plus you have the latest in tech with Corning® Gorilla® Glass 5 to protect your phone from impact. The WQHD+ (2960 x 1440) is the best yet with 570 ppi.

Its super fast with Android 8.0 (Oreo) OS and can blaze through multiple functions with effortless speed. 4GB of RAM with expandable microSD memory its great for filling with all the photos and videos of your life even at 4K video.

The main camera is a 12 MP, f/1.5-2.4, 26mm (wide), 1/2.55″, 1.4µm, OIS, dual pixel PDAF. Its packed with all sorts of different camera modes and super smooth 4K 60fps. Images are smooth as butter as they move across the screen. I love the Selective Focus feature which makes you able to take pictures with great bokeh and you can actually change the focus point and blur in POST after you take the photo. Its like having a super expensive DSLR camera in your phone. The front selfie camera comes in at 8 mp.

This is a phone you’ll love. In using it day and out I couldnt find anything wrong with it and might be to date the most perfect phone with its leap in technology.
