Samsung Galaxy S9 review: Two steps forward, one step back

.

The Good The Galaxy S9 once again proves Samsung"s formula of a gorgeous 5.8-inch screen, sexy dual-curved design and terrific camera for well-lit shots can"t go wrong. Whiplash-fast speeds, wireless charging and water-resistance complete the package. And it looks stunning in purple and blue.

The Bad Low-light photos often look blurry and lack the fine texture and contrast of competing phone cameras. The Galaxy S9"s camera frequently, accidentally switches between modes. 3D avatar software is tragically bad and a new face-unlock tool is inherently insecure. The Galaxy S9 costs more than last year"s Galaxy S8.

The Bottom Line The Galaxy S9 is a nice incremental upgrade, but its low-light camera isn’t a game changer and some new features fall far behind the iPhone X. S8 owners can skip, but it"s a good upgrade from older Androids.
