The Galaxy S9 isn't fairing too well in benchmarks

  • What makes the Samsung Max better than the Google app is its ability to minimise data consumption of apps in the foreground

For one, Samsung has addressed numerous ergonomic and functional problems that plagued the S8. In a nutshell: the fingerprint reader under the display is not yet ready to be implemented on Samsung's flagships, but it will be eventually.

Although there's now an option to disable it, that troublesome Bixby button from Galaxy S8 still can't be removed entirely in S9 too. It's also heavier by 8 grams; not significant, but noteworthy. While you can still pretend to be a cartoon character (including Mickey Mouse, thanks to a partnership with Disney that Apple surprisingly missed the boat on), the S9's shining feature is the ability to create animated Bitmoji-style likenesses of yourself that can be shared with your friends. AirPlay aside, Apple has nothing capable of turning the iPhone into a Mac-like device, so we're stuck using a tiny screen when we want to get things done on our phone.

The rear-mounted fingerprint sensor is now more sensibly placed below the camera, which is where it should have been in the first place.

If taking lovely travel photos is your priority, you might want to consider upgrading to Samsung's new flagship phone. It comes with a 12MP rear camera with dual variable aperture of f/1.5 and f/2.4. The telephoto lens is also 12MP with f/2.4 aperture. The handsets are tipped to come with unique features of their own. It's called "Intelligent Scan" and it switches between retina scanning and facial recognition to optimize the experience no matter what the situation.

The S9 has a dual aperture camera. Apple sadly removed Touch ID and made a decision to keep Face ID as the only way to unlock the iPhone X. That still remains to be seen.

Apple's iPhone X takes third with 97 points, though its camera actually outperforms the Google Pixel 2 for photographs. In February 2018, Google opened up its Visual Core chipset in its Pixel 2 flagship smartphone so it worked with third party apps such as Snapchat, WhatsApp, Instagram and Facebook. For the S9 Plus, you'll pay $915, or $30.50/month for 30 months. The Galaxy was a clear upgrade over the Note 7 - a phone that Samsung had to completely write off as a loss due to the issue of an exploding battery.

The folks over at Anandtech already have a Galaxy S9 on hand, powered by the Exynos 9810 chip. On the front, there's an 8MP snapper with f/1.7 aperture. Both phones are on Android 8.0 Oreo with TouchWiz UI on top.

The Samsung Galaxy S9 may not be able to catch up with the iPhone X in terms of speed, but it has bested its rival in the display department. It has also allowed for more interesting innovations in image processing.
