I am really hope that Samsung will not made any smartphone with notch. The design of this phone is very nice. Keep up the good design, Samsung!
3p, 17 Oct 2018From camera specs it looks like we've entered a "camera count" race. Having small main sensor ... moreEven it has not IOS camera. Tele x2 sensor is not great deal because Huawei mate 20 pro can do x5.
Sorry for those who love ip68. RIP.
If we put in simple sentence then it is on same path which Microsoft mobile kicked out on dessert roadside.
Samsung is clearly out if ideas, why they trying to compensate innovation term by adding crappy cameras lol
From camera specs it looks like we've entered a "camera count" race. Having small main sensor (24MP) and 10MP "2x" telphoto one sounds like the feature was designed by marketing department. (Cropping main sensor would probably give very similar result. Having different sensors would also make sense.)

Ever ever highest margin selling mobile.
Actaul cost is below $130.

Samsung makes great phone's dude, definitely one of the best brands.
lacp, 15 Oct 2018Samsung is always relevant and will be for many years.Their midrange stink most of the time. They get away with flagship defects since they show up past the 2-year rental period.
Like the Note 4 emmc problems.
1337F0X, 15 Oct 2018Thats why they called it ¨hands-on¨ review, not a ¨full¨ review or any of that.They mean the same thing.
Ill be waiting a while for my dream phone with 37.19 individual cameras, this is the correct amount of cameras.

Panasonic please produce a CM2, it will blow all other phones' cameras out of the water.
Why review a pre-production unit and call it a review?
Is being first of higher priority than being accurate? If you don't want us to judge, why are you judging? no offense but it doesn't make sense to me.
Also that wide angle? they could easily fix that distortion using a lens correction profile or something, unacceptable imo.
very very good performance, very good.
BUT, does Samsung care about quality? no, sadly no. only about performance.
see Note 7 eppisode, see S8/S8+/note8 LOTS of big HW problems... ...
sorry but thanks, NO, thanks. I am the unhappy user of a Samung S8 which get broken after not even one year of usage. all sensors stop working, no GPS... exactly when going into a vacation... sent it to service, wait 2 weeks... reinstall everything......
Bad news: The camera images won't get much better. The 24 MP sensor has too small pixels to give noiseless photos.
For those who think about ISP, the Galaxy A7 stretches the Exynos 7885 beyond limits and uses it's CPU to do the processing (observe the battery drain quicker as you play with the camera). Though this should not be the case with A9 (Spectra ISP is powerful enough), it remains to be seen if this SoC can save the images with 0.9 um pixel size.
For those uninformed, Rear and front camera --> A6+ is the best A series phone till now (in 2018).
