  • Samsung Galaxy S6 Edge owners will get the update to Android 8.0 Oreo

The Galaxy S9's camera also has another trick up its sleeve with the ability to create your very own emoji all by simply snapping a selfie.

One of the key features Samsung is heavily marketing its Galaxy S9+ about is the variable aperture in one of its rear cameras.




In any event, Samsung was able to beat out the Google Pixel 2 XL for the top spot, something it was not able to do a year earlier with its Galaxy S8+ vs. the original Pixel XL. DxOMark reported that the Galaxy S9+ sports a camera that performs well across photo and video tests, and comes with no obvious weaknesses. According to a report from the company, the S9 screen not only gets the award for Best Performing Smartphone but also gets the company's "highest ever A+ rating". While the phone had scored a record-setting 104 in the photos test, it scored 91 in the videography test, with scope for further improvements. This means that a single lens can switch between f/2.4 aperture for taking in details during optimum lighting conditions, and a low f/1.5 aperture. The camera also supports super-Slow-Mo recording ideal for capturing every moment, and features personalized AR emoji for a more fun and way of expressing yourself.

A slide from Samsung's Galaxy S9 camera presentation. This is what makes him believe that there was something wrong with the Samsung Galaxy S9 demo unit that he tested. "In both still and video modes, it performs well across the board, delivering consistently good photo and video image quality in all light and shooting situations, thus earning itself our highest DxOMark Mobile score to date", noted DxOMark in its website. Moreover, you get your $40 activation fee waived if you go the Sam's Club route between March 16-18, when the phones launch.
