Samsung Galaxy S9 review: A tale of cameras and controversy

Samsung is the first big-name global smartphone maker to launch new flagship phones in 2018, and early responses have been somewhat mixed. The Galaxy S9 and Galaxy S9+ certainly managed to impress members of the media who were able to take an early look at the devices ahead of their unveiling. I know I was impressed. But the sentiment among Android fans has been a bit less straightforward.

People for the most part seem impressed with Samsung’s claims surrounding the Galaxy S9’s new Super Speed Dual Pixel camera. The previous-generation Dual Pixel camera is still among the world’s best more than two years after it first debuted on the Galaxy S7, so it stands to reason that we can expect great things from the new version. On the flip side, however, people are decidedly unimpressed with the Galaxy S9’s design.
