Samsung Galaxy S9 Plus low-light camera performance: Yay or nay?

Samsung Galaxy S9 Plus low-light camera performance: Yay or nay?

Samsung makes one of the best smartphone cameras, and the Galaxy S9's camera is sure to take better pictures than it's predecessor, the dual aperture camera intelligently identifies the scene and changes between the f/1.5 and f/2.4 aperture for low light and ultra bright scenes respectively. The smartphone will show, most likely in August of this year, but we can already guess what awaits us all the same Samsung S9 in a more rigorous design and with nearly identical innards, except that the display will do a little more. The Galaxy S9's fingerprint sensor is located at a more natural location compared to previous versions - underneath the camera rather than alongside it - which made it easy to get to my home screen nearly immediately since my finger naturally aligns with the sensor.

After spending more than a week using the Galaxy S9+ instead of the iPhone X, here are five features that stood out to me that Apple's smartphone is missing. Samsung has scheduled the update on 13th April for these two devices.

The 3.5mm headphone jack still being around on the Galaxy S9 really surprised me, but in a good way. Vivo is a much smaller company than Samsung with less R&D resources at its disposal; and Samsung's next Note device isn't expected to launch until the second half of this year, offering the company a lot of time to get this technology right.

The new camera on the S9 and S9 Plus features a 12-megapixel sensor with a variable aperture. This, according to the company, allows for enhanced low light performance. The source explained that due to technical issues, Samsung won't be able to release a phone fingerprint sensor under the display in 2018. It would be a bit of a shame if Samsung is unable to deliver an in-display fingerprint scanner for the Note 9, considering Vivo has already managed to do it with the X20 Plus UD. Take a look below to find out more.

Based on the statement made by the analyst, it looks Samsung is going to play it really safe this time just like the Galaxy S9.
