SAMSUNG GALAXY S9
Samsung refined the class-defining Galaxy S8 design and cured the phone of its ergonomically challenged tall feel. DEX also gets a much-needed update.
The big story, however, is the upgraded camera and first on a mainstream device mechanical variable aperture (f/2.4-f/1.5). It’s an insane engineering feat and deserves all the credit it gets. Does it improve image quality? Yes. Marginally. Samsung set the pace for Android phones this year. Again.
