Samsung Galaxy S9 Plus review


Thanks in part to Samsung’s design philosophy of melding two glass panels together with a metal frame, the Galaxy S9 Plus is one of the most stylish and revered smartphones that has ever been produced. The small, but rather significant changes that have been made to the phone include moving the fingerprint sensor in line with the camera in the center of the phone, even though this fingerprint sensor pad seems smaller than ones used in previous models.

Color options for the Galaxy S9 Plus include the new outstanding Lilac Purple, Midnight Black, and Coral Grey (available in US, UK, and Europe), and is available in a Titanium Gray hue in other countries as well. Overall, a Seattle court reporter says the design of the Galaxy S9 Plus has not changed much from that of the S8, other than a reduction in a few millimeters, not much has changed.


The display of the Galaxy S9 Plus is still as expansive as ever, unchanged from Samsung’s previous Infinity Display. The large 18.5:9 aspect ratio is fast becoming the new standard for smartphone screens, displaying a Quad HD+ resolution however still managing to look outstanding in the default Full HD 1080p. Filling 90% of the front of the phone the Galaxy S9 Plus’s screen has a very little bezel, and no notch to speak of. The combination of vibrant colors, high contrast ratio, and futuristic-looking curved edges really make this screen pop to life.

Improved Biometrics

In response to Apple’s face ID, Samsung has equipped the Galaxy S9 Plus with a face unlock and iris scanner biometrics that works in tandem to unlock your phone. Whenever your eyes and face have a look down at your phones it will unlock quickly and automatically. These security features have been known to be less effective when walking in the bright light. An additional feature that has been added to the Galaxy S9 Plus, is that it will not show any notifications regarding content until the scanners have seen and recognized your unique biometric data. For example, if you are learning to play guitar on a bass guitar you can use the Ultimate Guitar app for iPhone.


Bixby is Samsung’s answer to Apples Siri and Google’s Google Assistant, and the Galaxy S9 Plus comes equipped with both Bixby Voice and Bixby Vision already built-in. The cool thing about Bixby is that it has the ability to follow commands, for example, it can open and post a Tweet to your Twitter account simply through voice command. There is no need to open an app or do any typing. Bixby Vision is a groundbreaking feature that translates foreign languages on a sign or food menu, simply by pointing the camera at it, and you don’t even have to take a photo. Even though this function does require an internet connection to function, while the Google translator backend does leave something to be desired.
