Samsung Galaxy S9 earns DisplayMate's first ever A+ grade

  • Galaxy S7 Edge

Is it really going to live up to the hype?

The unconfirmed post is a list of phones coming out using the chipset, and what looks like the Samsung Note 9 is slated for September this year, supposedly followed by the Google Pixel 3 and the Sony Xperia XZ2.

At this point you've undoubtedly heard of DxOMark, a site that tests out both mobile and standard cameras, putting them through a series of tests to determine their overall score.

Keep in mind that if you don't qualify for one of these discounts, you're better off ordering the phone from Best Buy, Samsung, or T-Mobile (try to get it unlocked).

Samsung has officially taken the top spot for having the best smartphone screen, beating the Apple iPhone X, thanks to that Super AMOLED display in the latest Samsung S9.

With a photo score of 104, the Samsung Galaxy S9+ camera can produce excellent results in all light conditions. When it comes to video, it scored a 91 which may seem low but it is still the highest when comparing video taking for other smartphones out there.

As Soneira highlights in his extensive report, the S9 matched or set many new display performance records during testing. It also offers great noise reduction and retention of every minute detail. Other high notes came from the "bright and vivid colors" and "fast & accurate autofocus". And while Apple eliminated the headphone jack with the iPhone 7 in favor of its own Lightning connector and wireless AirPod ear buds, Samsung said its new Galaxy S9 and S9 Plus were created to give customers features they actually wanted.

As far as display goes, you won't see any notable differences, with both phones featuring some of the best screens on the market. In the UAE, Etisalat has one of the lowest offerings for the new smartphones.

According to DxOMark, the Galaxy S9+'s dual camera system is based on that of last year's Note8, which still scores highly in the ratings with a 94 score and a 6th place finish.
