Is it me or has the touch to expose setting gone? Now it only focuses but before if for example you was shooting a dark scene you could brighten the forground or any part of the photo u desired....now it just seems to focus only and Im not aure if there is a setting for it
Anonymous, 18 Mar 2018Those are s9 and agree with.
S9+ is a diff story though.S9+ different story? Where?
Man to be honest Samsung pay 350 dollars to make one S9 thats less than 300 euros and the selling price is much over 1000 eur depens on your casual shop.
If the rest goes to the chinese workers at the foxconn who work hard 12 hours each day i wouldnt mind. But this is not the case.
At Foxcon people i mean basic assemblers earn 0,20 eur per hour and top management have like 1 eur per hour which is like 12 eurs a day or 2,20 eur a day per basic worker.
If you call this justice then i we are on wrong tracks.
But to be honest most of the money from each phone going to the super expensive advertising where Samsung doesnt hesitate to pay high amount to some celebrity or TV star for a promo.

X User, 19 Mar 2018Hi, I would just like to ask one thing. I bought the S9+ in Singapore. Mine is a 256GB version... moreIn India too they have clear protective case in the box. I watched india specific unbocing videos

Yeah you can have Mate 10 or go Pro which has a killer battery life.
Or wait for the p20;)
X User, 19 Mar 2018Hi, I would just like to ask one thing. I bought the S9+ in Singapore. Mine is a 256GB version... moreThey are also supplying in Indian market that clear protective case. And u know what I think they are giving that pre order gift. But I m very surprised to see that we are buying a that flagship phone which cost is 65000 in India and a simple protective case they are giving to the pre order customers. And one more thing in every advertisement they are highlighting the slow no video that capture the moment if we try to record in slow no video than its getting very blur and very blackish . Which Can be record only in day time. We can't record at evening time than it will not be clear video.
Hi, I would just like to ask one thing. I bought the S9+ in Singapore. Mine is a 256GB version (to qualify for the free wireless charger). Mine has a clear protective case that comes free. I am surprise that with so many unboxing videos and reviews, no one pointed that out. The case is inside the leaflet box. Unless only Singapore market has it (which I highly doubt so).

I am so disappointed with S9+. Same design, basically the same camera, a bit faster GPU and CPU , some gimmick features and a sky-high price. I am done with Samsung, hope Huawei save the Android camp.... Do not want to switch to Apple, but all those boring new phones are leaving me with no choice. If I am gonna play 900$ for a phone, at least I will need full support for several years and good battery life.
for the past years, usually S Series dominate the chart of most visitted phones on gsmarena during their gala premiere for weeks, even months. But now it just reach no 1 for few days and then step down. Is this the end of Samsung era ?
Nick, 18 Mar 2018Except Xperia flagships are only phones which automatically activates "tripod mode" that uses ... moreBeen trying to tell this to the Xperia fans for the longest time but they don't seem to understand such a simple fact. On tripod, XZ2 is great but if handheld, S9 is better. I would suggest that we save our time and effort. To them, Sony Xperia is the best in everything.
Next time clearly indicate which spec option are you reviewing. Same thing with the tables, instead giving clocks just indicate which cpu it is.
Anonymous, 16 Mar 2018Low light has nothing to Pixel size... S9 has 1,4 micron but they are only 12 million. X... moreLow-light performance largely depends on pixel size. If each individual pixel is more sensitive to light, there will be less noise in the image. So even if there are 19 million pixels which are receiving light, since SNR of the sensor is low with smaller pixels, the advantage of having more pixels quickly vanishes in dim environment. It is also shown that OIS does not have an effect on the quality of video stabilisation (e.g. Pixel 2), and if Sony really can't manage to get OIS and EIS working together like Google did, they can just turn off OIS with software(yes, OIS actually can be disabled if the manufacturer chooses to do so)when recording video.

In hand shots you need maximum 1/16ss unless you have exceptional issues, which is still can get better photos than the s9.
Why going so far? Compare the video samples, you know since it is a video sample then it is 30 fps then the shutter speed can never be less than 1/30ss and a tripod is literally useless, check this out.

In handheld you will see S9 faring much better than XZ2 in low-light.

X... moreLOL absolutely no!
If the XZ2 is set to the same ISO and SS as the S9, the XZ2 could be even worse than the S9. The Galaxy S9 has better camera hardware, ISP and algorithm, the new algorithm on the XZ2 is great improvement, but that's not really great compare to Samsung.
If we change the display to FHD+ , then will it make a difference in the benchmarks for the GPU??
