(Check out our Samsung S9 review to find out more about the S9Plus’s smaller sibling.) And this comes without the S9 Plus being that muchdifferent to last year’s Samsung Galaxy S8, either.Yes, it is an iterative update, but when you consider how most other Androidmakers are still in the process of catching up with Samsung’s technicaljuggernaut, that is no bad thing, especially when you consider what Samsunghas spent its time adding this time around.The Samsung Galaxy S9 Plus looks identical at first glance to the S8 Plus.There are differences, though.As with the Samsung Galaxy S9, the standout new hardware on the Samsung GalaxyS9 Plus this year is the phone’s rear 12MP dual-aperture camera system, whichnot only offers enhanced low-light and bright-light image and video takingcapabilities, but also sits at the heart of this year’s other innovations,such as Super Slow-mo recording, AR Emoji, and an upgraded version ofSamsung’s Bixby assistant AI, which now delivers real-time object detectionand recognition, so again its focus makes sense.And the new camera system, as well as AR Emoji and Bixby Vision are not theonly things the S9 Plus shares with the S9, too. In terms of hardware, thereis very little difference between the two handsets (the S9 Plus has a littlemore RAM and internal storage), so it’s only natural to wonder what makes themore expensive S9 Plus worthy our attention.For the answer and all-important detail then read on.

Samsung S9 Plus review: camera
The S9 Plus, like the regular S9, comes packing Samsung’s new dual-aperturecamera system.Both the S9 Plus and S9 share Samsung’s new 12MP rear camera with dual-aperture technology, a system that has been designed to deliver enhanced low-light and bright-light image and video taking.The camera works by ditching the fixed aperture system that is common insmartphones today for one that can expand and contract like the iris of ahuman eye. This means that the S9 Plus’s camera automatically lets in morelight to its sensor when the surrounding environment is too dark, and thenless light when it is too light, leading to less images that are blown out ortoo dark for detail to pop.The camera system is also now capable of recording Super Slow-mo video at960fps at 720p, and 240fps at 1080p, with both modes also packing MotionDetection technology. This means that when the user selects a slow motion modeall they have to do is hold the phone up to the thing they want to record andwait for the action to begin – the camera will automatically start recordingwhen it sees any movement.As you can watch above, we’ve been playing with the super slow-mo camera modequite a bit in the T3 office and we have been very impressed with the qualityof slow-motion footage captured – which can then be easily turned into avideo, gif or even live wallpaper for the phone – as well as the accuracy andspeed of the automatic motion detection.Both this 12MP rear camera and the Samsung Galaxy S9 Plus’ front 8MP cameraare also central to delivering this year’s other key innovations for Samsung -AR Emoji and Bixby Vision.
Samsung S9 Plus review: verdict
We thought the 5.8-inch Super AMOLED screen on the regular sized SamsungGalaxy S9 was superb, but here, with a huge 6.2-inches of real estate, it justlooks stunning. The brightness, contrast, and definition of the panel justblew us away, and the vibrancy of colour too was remarkable. It really is thebest smartphone screen in the world right now.The extra 2GB of RAM over the standard Galaxy S9 (6GB) is also a good fit, andthe 3,500mAh battery, while not noteworthy, will deliver similar levels ofperformance we’re guessing to the S8 Plus, which itself was comfortably in aday’s usage range with moderate use. Naturally, until we can test the batteryfully in our full fat review, we will withhold any definite judgement.The shifted fingerprint sensor, arguably, makes even more of an impact on theS9 Plus than it does on the S9, too. Now located at the centre-back of thephone under the centrally position dual-aperture camera system, it isincredibly natural now to unlock the phone, even taking into account its largeprofile.And, obviously, all the extra features Samsung has brought to the S9 range areas good if not better to enjoy on a larger and fractionally more powerfulphone. Creating AR Emoji on the phone is fast and fun, and taking and viewingphotos and videos – notably the new 960fps Super Slow-mo videos – on thelarger screen a pleasurable experience.Of course, there are a few caveats to purchase, and we certainly don’t thinkthe S9 Plus is for everyone, or an S9-disregarding essential.Firstly, it is a big phone and, well, you’re going to need big hands reallyfor it not to look and feel unwieldy. Secondly, it is a not inconsiderable£130 more than the regular S9, ringing in at rather dear £869 – again, if youdon’t need that extra screen size then this phone probably isn’t for you. Andlastly, with both the S9 and S9 Plus allowing you to bolt in large quantitiesof external storage by MicroSD (up to 400GB, in fact) you’ll really want toconsider whether you need that 128GB of internal storage that comes with theS9 Plus. The regular S9 comes with 64GB after all, and you can cheaply andeasily by a MicroSD card to expand that.Overall, though, if you want the best big phone on the market right now (and,Note 9 aside, maybe the year) then the Samsung Galaxy S9 Plus is the obviouschoice. It is superbly well equipped and, from our time with the phone, it hasalready gone a long, long way to winning our approval.How to root Samsung Galaxy S9Commonly, mobile phone makers such as Samsung set limitations to avoid youfrom achieving special maneuver.
