We took advantage of MWC 2018 to interview Mark Notton, Samsung's Director of Product Portfolio & Commercial Strategy, and ask him a few questions about the brand's new flagship, the Samsung Galaxy S9. Got any questions about the S9? You might just find the answers right here.
MWC is over, and we now have all the juicy details of the upcoming devices. Samsung was center of attention with the S9 and S9+ leading up to the event and several major brands backed out of presenting flagships phones. Did any other devices steal the show for you?
Dark and low lighting conditions, bright lights, detailed close-ups: capturing all this well is what we expect from a high-end smartphone camera. We began to put the Galaxy S9 camera through the test, and it's looking promising so far, besides one mysterious thing.
With the Galaxy S9 and S9+, Samsung has only one new feature. The Unpacked event leaves the only exciting feature of the new generation of devices unmentioned. Instead, the brand is focusing on catching up with its competitors from Apple, Sony and Huawei, rather than the real needs of customers.
Apple launched its commemorative smartphone for the 10th anniversary of iPhone in late 2017, while the two new Galaxy S9 and S9+ smartphones have just arrived on the market. Now, with both in hand, who can resist a direct confrontation between the rival champions? Let's find out which leads the way.
Yes, the new (and much-hyped) Samsung Galaxy S9 and S9+ are very good smartphones. However, here are three points on which they could have been better in my opinion. Let's be armchair engineers and designers for a moment and cast a critical eye over the latest flagships from the big brand.
