Samsung Galaxy S9 hands-on impressions! Samsung just announced the brand new Samsung Galaxy S9 & Galaxy S9+, and I was able to get Galaxy S9 hands-on impressions at a media briefing with Samsung prior to the event! In this episode I go hands-on with the Samsung Galaxy S9 & S9+, giving you a look at some of the best Samsung Galaxy S9 features!

Samsung has focused on the Galaxy S9 camera, adding new features like dual aperture f/2.4 and f/1.5, 960fps super slow motion, and even a secondary telephoto lens on the Galaxy S9+ – bringing that secondary camera over from the Galaxy Note 8. Similar to the way the iris of a human eye expands and contracts, Samsung’s Dual Aperture (F1.5 – F2.4) automatically lets in more light when it’s dark and less light when it’s too bright, taking photos that are crisp and clear anytime, anywhere.

The body design of the Samsung Galaxy S9 and S9+ are similar to what you’d find on the Galaxy S8 series. However, the S9 Infinity Display stays the same size, while making the phone a little smaller and moving the fingerprint sensor to a much more comfortable position beneath the camera. New to the design are new stereo speakers – a first for a Samsung Galaxy smartphone. Smartphones are often our go-to choice for entertainment, which is why Samsung created a device that offers premium sound experiences with stereo speakers tuned by AKG. Whether users are watching their favorite movie or streaming their favorite artist’s latest album, sounds are clear, crisp and rich in quality. The Galaxy S9 and Galaxy S9+ also support Dolby Atmos enabled surround sound, giving the effect of 360-degree sound.

The Samsung Galaxy S9 is powered by the Qualcomm Snapdragon 845 in North America, and comes in Midnight Black, Lilac Purple, and Coral Blue. Galaxy S9 pre-orders start on March 2nd, and the Galaxy S9 and S9+ go on sale on March 16th.

  1. Nice job Andru! In general looks like you have a great Tech channel! If Samsung is inviting you to review their new phones you must be doing something right too! Lol. Keep up the great work! You need to do a Sinbad impression sometime though! Lol.

  2. Hi. Jesus has die on the cross for our sins and rose back from the death on the third day to justify us. Believe in Jesus like your LORD and SAVIOR and you are save. Romans 10:9

    Don't fix what's not broken, right?
    I think this is a refinement to the S8 and S8 Plus so this is a good enough update IMO.
    Good to see they move the finger print reader to a location that makes more sense.
    Nice that the Galaxy S9+ is finally using the dual lens set up.
    900 fps, 720p super slow mode is pretty nice.
    Stereo speakers is a great improvement too.
    Apple really has a lot to catch up with the iPhone 8 & 8 Plus and even the iPhone X.

  4. I would say if you have a note 8 don't upgrade wait for the note 9. If you have a s6 or 7 yup defo upgrade unless you don't care and got Money to spend buy it's more of S8 upgrade

  5. Awesome Andru! Glad all the drawbacks that the S8's & Note 8 had have been fixed with the new S9's. Love that the SO+ has dual cameras & in my eyes, really makes the design on the back no longer similar to the S6/S7. Yes stereo speakers!! Wish they did what Hauwei did with mate 10/pro was keep both phones w/ dual cameras. Idk if I were told this, but you can trade in your existing S8/Note 8 device or older and get $300 off for S9/S9+.

  6. Great video but a boring phone. Same old same old. All they give us is a better camera to take pics of our cheeseburgers with and better speakers. And that’s ALL of them. Samsung Apple etc. I believe they have hit the ceiling on real innovation. If you have a phone made within the last 2yrs save your money people. You ain’t getting that much of an upgrade
