I come from LG V20, want to replace primarily due to poor battery life now after 2 years. This ticks dedicated micro SD, good battery life, but lacks IR. I have question to actual owners (if you don't own, please don't respond). How is the camera's IQ after any recent updates, does the purple fringing/hue still persist? Are the pictures soft still? Does anybody know if Samsung is working on camera improvement? Does Open Camera give better results or is it the same?
I had seen the story going with Samsung.
Yea, very similar to Windows phone. Die in short time span.
As of now many cheap price mobiles available with improved features. A9 2018 is nightmare
If I buy this, my friends gonna borrow it and use the camera all the time ¶∆¶... Thinking how I became a photographer for their instagram and filling up my storage of their faces .... LoL I'm exaggerating
4 camera to ''beat'' huawei ? bcos they has 3 ? aaaah weell....
And + it is even worse .. aaaah well...
it isn't about quantity BUT quality !
Manhurt, 08 Jan 2019When Samsung misleading their costumers itself with unlogic 4 rear camera. I mean, why you nee... moreIndeed. Crap camera all around. And let's be honest nor battery and screen is not as it should for its price. Sony XA2 ultra or plus can eat this 4 s-cams with one camera all around plus its better battery life. Pricing by far Sony wins. So no way Shamesung!
Nooooo you can't have a phone loaded with camera at every part of it. Noooo rather form a nice pattern at the back . It could be in the form of a diamond, circle or an arc (semicircular shape)
GSMARENA team there is slight mistake in review .. under :
Samsung Galaxy A9 (2018) battery life
''The Samsung Galaxy A9 (2018) packs a 3,800mAh battery, a minor bump over the A7 (2018)'s 3,500mAh to go with the minor bump in display size and more powerful/power-hungry chipset.''
I think A7(2018) got 3,300mAh battery ... just saying .
When Samsung misleading their costumers itself with unlogic 4 rear camera. I mean, why you need 1 bokeh kamera if you have another 2 cameras for supporting main camera. That's silly!
fortune zaka fatai, 07 Jan 2019the battery capacity isn't enough. why not 7000+ instead of 3800mhYes, of course! I guess it should also make the coffee and shave your beard. ;-)

Geric.770, 07 Jan 2019I wish their next A series phones have better quality pictures. My friend had one, and he was... moreYou can check A7 review which according to gsmarena has good camera. So no A series has not bad camera but this one has and IÂ’m quite buffled that gsmarena did not returned that and asked for a good one cause I could not beleve Samsung would make such a big mistake in software for camera. I looks like a broken phone.
Damn.... so.... Was I lucky or what? Absolutely no purple cast on my pics. White balance works always fine, even before the two (already) camera updates. The only thing that sucks is that the software switch too quickly from the 2× lens to the main one, applying 2× digital zoom.
Cynthia, 06 Jan 2019Very disappointing quality of pictures !Exactly very low quality
It's surprising that the less expensive a7 has a better camera performance than the a9. Why?
