Light work

Stuff (UK) - - SUPERTEST SMARTPHONES -

By far the S9’s big­gest up­grade is the rear cam­era. This phone might have the same 12MP pixel count, dual-pixel aut­o­fo­cus and op­ti­cal image sta­bil­i­sa­tion as last year’s model, but you now get a vari­able aper­ture as well. What does this mean? The S9 can ad­just how much light it lets in ac­cord­ing to where you’re snap­ping. So low-light shots are markedly clearer and sharper than the Galaxy S8 and its fixed aper­ture. Use f/1.5 in brighter con­di­tions, though, and it isn’t hard to spot a lack of sharp­ness at the edges of the frame.
