Well its funny to see people complaining about the same design as the S8. Infinity Display is a new trend for Samsung and S8 is the 1st to get 18.5:9 screen. And guess what? It is the best design in mobile world. We as a customer just about to get used of it so why need to change the design so sudden? U guys as a Samsung fan should feel glad that the S9 didnt come with the notch.lol.
The objective Guy, 12 Mar 2018Ohh well....iPhones have not been forgettable even if they have recycled most of their design ... moreFor the record. I'm at 65% with moderate usage right now on the S9. And the battery isnt even settled down yet. This from a 7am start and its 4pm.

I don't applaud Samsung's effort here,however they refined the S8 formula, just like S7 refined S6 formula, and did very well relevancy and sales wise
Buy the S8+ instead, I know I will do it. The S8+ will be great value for money, the S9/S9+ makes me fall asleep, no animatronicemoji or f.2.4 aperture will change my mind!
Hayaan Mo Sila, 12 Mar 2018Any phone records videos with a specific fps. Clearly your argument doesn't make sense.
Samsu... moreYou are quite deluded aren’t you ? Your quote says “Samsung only had it first because they made smartphones earlier than Sony.” So, simply, that means Sony copied Samsung with fps video…hahaha
You have only tried Samsung 960fps one single time and claim to be an Expert…hahaha…leave it to the real professionals please. You are only embarrassing yourself here.
Slow-mo videos 960fps from gsmarena… https://www.gsmarena.com/samsung_galaxy_s9-review-1734p8.php
Xperia phones had a steep learning curve for hitting the button at the right time. We missed a lot of balloon pops, and it took us numerous attempts across a few days until we got the know-how.
Samsung captures the action automatically.
The phone begins the slow-mo sequence automatically thanks to a new clever AI algorithm, and you don't have to learn how and when to turn it on. And that's not just PR talk - we tried it, and we didn't miss a single balloon pop out of 20 or so takes. How about that?!
There is an option for manual triggering also.
Battery Life are just exactly same as 2015 Samsung A7 , you will facing 24% battery life at 4pm .
This S9 phone going to be forgettable in next few months for such
uninspired battery life performance and same design as S8.
Lets wait next upper middleranger (SND670/700) with better power eficiencies
and reasonable price.
S9 definately not in my 2018 list.
bye bye sammy. Your product quality not exceeding $800 price tag.
Anonymous, 12 Mar 2018 It could easily improve by release. Jeez. And doesn't describe the snap versionTo get acceptable battery life you need always on off? Wtff otherwise 50h endurance. Thats a lot worse than 2015 phones. S9 with the new Always Plugged to the wall feature.

Samsung only had it first because they made smartphones earlier than Sony. Otherwise, Sony has been making fantastic video cameras way before Samsung was a big thing.
Samsung only has the advantage of Automatic detection because of a slightly better SoC. But in my testing, it wasn't consistent and didn't work the first time I've tried it. I didn't give it another shot due to the limited time of me testing the phone, but one thing is, the quality is amid at best. At least Sony has FHD option for it to be more usable than plain 720p, which appears lower than what the resolution says.
Many people had the XZ Premium and it only took them a little bit of practice to get things right, and the final results were amazing. Samsung is just following Sony with this path.
I still haven't seen any reviews on the heart rate/blood pressure monitor. I've seen the article that says the s9 can measure your BP optically now, that's a first for any smartphone.

Plus it was a first for Samsung. And Sony copied this technology from Samsung. In 2018, Samsung does 960fps far better than Sony with automatic detection and start function. Go and read gsmarenas review of Sony where it states that its extremely hard to function, due to manual function only in 2018 models. Stop trolling here and go to your Sony forum

Fig, 11 Mar 2018I stopped reading after battery life.. pathetic battery endurance from a 2018 flagship.. shame!!They tested the exynos version. Wait for the Snapdragon version to be tested.
Kaloyan, 11 Mar 2018So, Samsung paid for page 2, but Apple paid for page 9? This thing is getting hilarious! :D... absolutely hilarious!
Anonymous, 12 Mar 2018No, Samsung has been doing FPS video for 9 years now, and Sony just copied Samsung
Plus Sam... more1. Sony has taken slow motion into the next level. Besides, neither Sony nor Samsung was first with slow motion. But Sony was more intelligent to innovate earlier. Samsung had no choice but to borrow the technology, and introduced some new things to not sound like an exact copy paste.
2. Auto function on the S9 doesn't work consistently. I tried it once with my shaking hand and it didn't even work, though to be fair, my hand was very big from the square, but it should have detected some motion still.
The manual way on the Sony is way trickier and harder, but a little bit of practice and it will be an ease taking videos. 720p, on the other hand, is utterly unusable, so FHD at least makes some sense for it.
AnonD-75440, 11 Mar 2018960 FPS copied from Sony Xperia XZ Premium No, Samsung has been doing FPS video for 9 years now, and Sony just copied Samsung
Plus Samsung has AUTOMATIC 960fps that is actually useful. Sony only has manual, which means 9/10 times you will miss that great shot.
