These reasons just scratch the surface. The S9 is looking like a pretty killer device. I can’t wait to get my hands on it in a few days. What are some reasons you think the S9 is better than the iPhone X? or do you actually prefer the cryOS device?
In this video we take a look at the early benchmarks from both the Snapdragon 845 and the Exynos 9810 from the Galaxy S9. While benchmarks don’t tell the full story they do give us an idea of the kind of performance that we can expect from a device. What are your thoughts? Should Samsung find a way to bring the Exynos chips to US variant devices?
I have used the Galaxy Note 8 as my main device for the past several months. This has been one of my favorite devices hands down. There is so much to love about the phone, but there are still some things that Samsung can improve on when it comes to the Galaxy Note 9. These are my top 5 best and worst things about the Galaxy Note 8!
Adoption rates of Android Oreo are a bit abysmal. Some of the largest Android OEMs are still have not rolled out the update to their handsets. We saw the first Android Oreo developer preview about a year ago. So far we only have a handful of devices running Android 8.0 including the Pixel 2 and Pixel 2 XL. Samsung had started to roll out the update for the Galaxy S8, but then quickly postponed the update. None of this is going to keep the Android train from chugging down the track.
In this video we take a look at everything we know so far about the Galaxy S9!
Will the upgrades be enough for you to make the jump? Is this too much of an incremental update for you?
We have heard rumors since the release of the Galaxy S8 that this years flagship from Samsung would be released early. There had even been some extreme suggestions that we may see a teaser of the video at CES 2018. While we won’t see the release of the Galaxy S9 at CES, Samsung just confirmed the launch timing.
We will never forget the year of the exploding Note 7 devices. Now it seems Samsung is dealing with a less urgent, but equally detrimental battery issue on the Galaxy Note 8. While the Note 8 won’t blow up in your pants the battery is giving some users major heart ache.
The Pixel 2 has hands down one of the best cameras on a smartphone. While the camera hardware is A+ the software is really what makes the difference. Google tends to focus on dynamic range and low light performance with their camera software. You can actually improve the performance on your camera with their software.
The LG G7 was arguably one of the best phones of 2017. It featured a great design, spectacular camera and features like waterproofing and wireless charging that made this phone hard to beat. That being said LG has decided it won’t follow up the series with another “G” branded device. While the G7 was top notch it didn’t perform in sales as well as LG would have liked.
We have been expecting that the Galaxy S9 and S9+ would have smaller bottom bezels than the Galaxy S8 and S8+ from last year, but new intel coming from accessory makers may confirm otherwise. Olixar has just released images of their first Galaxy S9 and S9+ screen protectors confirming the design of the devices. This years new flagships will have the same dimensions of the S8 and S8+. The front camera and sensor placement will remain the same as well.
