Samsung Galaxy S9/S9+

Samsung Galaxy S9/S9+

Date Written: 3/8/2018

On February 25th, Samsung announced the Galaxy S9 and S9+ which are the latest models in their premium phone line. These phones run the Android operating system and by some measures the S series phones are most popular, premium Android phones available. They are set to be released later this month.

The S9/S9+ have all the specs and features you would expect. From the outside they look very similar to last year's models, but they have upgraded the build materials which has increased durability. They're water and dust resistant, but still having a headphone jack and a microSD expandable storage slot. The hardware inside the phone has also been improved. The improvements aren't ground breaking, but are in line with what you would expect with a new model. In terms of features, the biggest improvements are to the cameras. This includes mechanical aperture, portrait selfies, and super-slow-motion video.
When we talk with home inspectors looking for a good Android phone to use with Palm-Tech, the Galaxy S series are typically the first ones we mention to check out. We've heard great things about them in the past and have no reason to expect that to change with the S9 and S9+.
