As for S9, we do agree its just a minor improvement over S8. Plenty high end phone is better for cheaper price.
Every body are so busy discussing and comparing the camera performance, anybody noticed the mediocre GPU performance "compared to competitors".

The low light issue has always been the high ISO since Z1.
Nothing to do with software processing.
The shots at low ISO ( 50) are better than any phone.
Yes, even with f2.0 the 1/2.3" sensor can catch more light than 1/2.5" or 1/3" with bigger aperture. If all have same SS and ISO

Through the compare tool also check the white balance, it beats iPhone and Galaxy for better white balance.

For your info. Not even on tripod any Sony goes slower than 1/15s on auto superior mode.

Another great logic that it has bigger and better sensor that's why Xperia's image is better.
You are such a logical person. Even with a Nikon D850 and Sony A7r III you can't take star trails without a tripod. Get a life, and admit that Xperia is the better choice.
To the Xperia fans here: Yes, the camera comparison on this website actually shows that the low-light photos taken by XZ2 are better than those taken by S9. This is because of the higher resolution, bigger sensor size and lower ISO used by the XZ2. But check the shutter speeds. The XZ2 photo was taken at 1/8s. Without OIS and a tripod, all photos taken at this shutter speed will be blurry. This website was able to use such a slow shutter speed because all studio shots were taken on a tripod. As someone mentioned, the Xperia phones are able to detect if they are mounted on a tripod. However, people don't carry a tripod around with their phone. Under handheld conditions, which is the case for most people, the S9 will outperform the XZ2 simply because the S9 has OIS and is able to use a lower ISO. I hope this ends the debate.
worst brittle long glass design, impractical gimmick edge curved screen, worst battery life, no flat screen choice, no dual camera for s9, pricing is too much for one year shelf life (for all so called flagship), no audiophile grade like lg v30......
only positive side is no notch, 3.5mm jack retention(actually common feature a year ago),slight improved camera (variable aperture) and stereo speaker(a basic feature in almost all old nokia phones) which is not worth the money.. chipset improvement is of no use if battery life and software quality is becoming worst day by day . For me a good chipset is a one that handles all software efficiently(low battery consumption) and remains cool if used in full load for very long time.
Improvement means, they should atleast have bigger sensor for camera, xenon and led flash, mechanical shutter, audiophile grade hardware, battery improvement with replaceable battery..I do not mind if it is 10 to 12mm fat..
With this kind of mediocore battery performance..
What samsung has archieve so far in 2018???
This is embrassing for galaxy s line reputation.
78 hours of endurance = nothing to be proud off..
The Xperia XZ1/XZ1C beats the Galaxy S9 in lowlight when shoot with a tripod..
Samsung ain´t the best, neither is Sony. But it´s all down to personal preference!
Found these photos, one is the XZ1C shoot with a tripod 1sec exposure and the other is the S9 and the XZ1C looks alot better, more detail and so on ;P
Both are in full resolution.

xXENDER FREAKXx, 10 Mar 2018Somehow their EXYNOS chipset for the midrangers are much more efficient than their top-of-the-... moreIt's not that it's more efficient. The more efficient Exynos 9810 is powering a more power hungry device.
Mid rangers don't require as much power as flagship devices.
Say for instance, the Exynos 7880 is about as powerful and efficient as Exynos 7420.
The Galaxy A8 doesn't have anything that requires as much power as the Galaxy S6, hence the benefit of better battery life.

My sister has the iPhone 7 Plus, a phone that got an average Endurance Rating from GSMArena, and from what I'm seeing, she's using her phone extensively for internet browsing, social media, and multimedia all the time, and she only charges about twice in a day; once in the mid day and another at night where any typical phone user will be sleeping and won't be using the phone.
Were you not able to use Bixby to switch to the telephoto camera? How about 'Zoom in'. It works on the Note8. And why is the iPhone X not present on the Antutu list?
