Even with higher ISO ( 90 x 50) the samples of XZ2 are better.
Scale all them to 12MP ( easier to compare) then you choose the Spongebob.. XZ2 does a bit better.
Now check the dollar bill... The logo on left side near de 11...
Even XZ1 can outperform S9.
I compared all flagships of 2017, only Note 8 comes closer to XZ1.
I dont know why haters hate...

This XZ2 impressed me a bit by Sony standards, but it's better only in some ways, because of more pixels and almost double the exposure time. Look at all that noise especially at the corners.
"3) the s9 is worse than the s8 in the low light scene"
Software still not perfect, look at the shutter times. The exposure time is too short.

Job is not being well done ...
Miss the old dumb phone day, when we got different design every year.
Wait... With newest chipset that was supposed to be so much more energy efficient, battery endurance fell behind previous galaxy? I'm still not convinced... Will have to stick to my S7 for a while or go Huawei this year
there is something odd with the studio picture tests:
1) the XZ2 has much better quality than the S9 in the low light scene.
2) the XZ2 is only marginally worse in the good light scene - there's more noise on the XZ2 there but sharpness is slightly better (and probably not due to algorithm but better lens or something like that)
3) the s9 is worse than the s8 in the low light scene (this does not 100% surprise me as other reviews DID point that out as well!)
are the tests correctly labelled? is the XZ2 just much better?! what is going on?!
So a whole year and all they could do was buy camera from sony?
I don't want any i.d.i.o.t telling me how they implemented it better than sony. That auto slo-mo stunt has to be the lamest gimmick ever. It's more accurate if they called it "random slo-mo", because that's what it actually is.
"Don't believe Samsung's marketing guys, it's just a gimmick, the different apertures have no difference at all, I swear!"
I can't believe Samsung would release a flagship with worse battery life than last year. Huge disappointment in this area. And in general, the lack of actual new features in S9 vs S8 is incredible for such a big company. What did they do for a whole year ? Figured out how to move the fingerprint sensor ? I can't see any reason for buying the S9 vs the (much cheaper) S8.
Great upgrade for those who have a s7, s6 or the + versions, I think that s8 owners should wait for the next iteration, I have a note 8, I will wait for note 10
