Samsung Galaxy S9: The New Kid on the Smartphone Flagship Block

Nowadays, almost everything new in the smartphone market is premium, cutting-edge, and pricey. The question is, are they worth what they sell for? Admittedly, for the Samsung Galaxy S9, the $720 price tag is a little too steep. However, Samsung fanatics might just shell out major bucks for the Galaxy S8 successor. Right off the bat, it looks much like its predecessor, but with a few subtle tweaks. With the Galaxy S9, there are a number of other not-so-subtle hardware and software additions, including:


Top-of-the-line camera.

Fitted with a dual-aperture camera system, the Galaxy S9 adjusts perfectly to light and produces crisp and clear bright-light photos and nicely lit low-light ones as well. It has a Food Mode that slightly increases the color warmth, which makes food look more enticing. Now you can indulge your inner foodstagrammer!


Improved fingerprint scanner placement and accuracy.

When consumers complained about the awkward placement of the fingerprint scanner on the Galaxy S8, Samsung listened. Now, the scanner is placed conveniently under the back camera and is more precise than ever.


Better stereo speakers.

Compared to the stereo speakers on the Galaxy S8 and S8+, the Galaxy S9 produces more robust audio at 1.4 times the volume. It provides a 3D-like audio experience, especially when used with Dolby Atmos speakers.


Fastest Android phone yet.

This Snapdragon 845-powered smartphone is the fastest Android phone we’ve seen so far. When it comes to transcoding 4K video files, it’s a minute and a half faster than the Galaxy S8 and only 30 seconds faster than Google’s Pixel 2 XL.


Cheaper than the iPhone X.

The Galaxy S9’s $720 price tag is peanuts compared to the iPhone X’s painful $999. Unfortunately, just like its competitor, the Galaxy S9 is a glass and metal sandwich and is just as fragile — extremely prone to starburst and spider cracks on the first drop.


If you’re drooling over the Galaxy S9 but also worrying about how fragile it is, there is a way around it. Introducing Liquipel’s SafeGuard Black Edition — it’s made from the same state-of-the-art technology used on the SafeGuard Protection Package that provides your phone with the best overall protection.
