One of the best cameras on any phone on the market and a harmony of improved features that are pleasing to the eyes, ears and touch make this a truly stupendous handset.
As a year-in-year-out performer in the world of smartphone production, Samsung sure knows how to create a handset that people dream about - and you can bet your last five years of phones on the fact that the S9 is another big-hitter.
The sleek-as-hell 5.8" Super AMOLED screen is good enough to make even sheet music look like a visual symphony at a resolution of 1440 x 2960 pixels, while the 12MP camera with an eye-poppingly powerful ability to pick up subjects in low light is really something else. Trust us, the S9 is your hopes, your dreams and your everything in between.
We 're not going to lie, the Samsung Galaxy S9 feels like you've got the whole universe in your hand. The screen pops with all the vibrant colours of supernovae and the processing power ticks off tasks like they're nothing. Samsung's galactic efforts paid off in the form of one of the finest machines to ever grace our pockets.
The dual aperture lens is undoubtedly the lead feature on our Samsung S9 refurbishments. Okay, it might not quite be the Hubble Space Telescope, but it can surely pick up light in those dreaded dark spots better than any handset you've had before. It adapts to lighting conditions like the human eye so it can automatically shift itself to the settings that will get you the best photo possible every time.
If most of us live with our phones, we can now live our best lives inour phones with Samsung's AR Emoji feature. Take a simple selfie and it will recreate you in augmented reality so you can express your real-world feelings with a series of stickers and videos. How's that for otherworldly, huh?
The biometrics on the S9 are a marked improvement on previous models. On our refurbished S9 handsets, you'll get a fingerprint scanner that's in a much more logical place than before and an Intelligent Scan feature that's simply supersonic in speed. It combines the iris scanner and facial recognition software to seamlessly unlock your phone before you've even had a chance to think about your passcode.
No longer will your Samsung Galaxy be restricted to a single speaker chucking soundwaves out of the bottom of the handset like music doesn't matter; the S9 utilises the earpiece as an additional speaker, so you'll get a better sense of space for your tunes and podcastery to live in if you can't or don't want to use your headphones.
As Samsung's answer to Siri and Google Assistant, Bixby is the resident little helper that's baked into these sleek handsets. There's a dedicated button on the side that can act like a walkie-talkie if you want it to, while the innovation behind it is better than it's ever been. Use the camera for real-time translations and real-world insights and this phone could well transform the way you live.
You'll have the seen the adverts. But watching them is like watching a Space X launch on TV – you have to see it with your own eyes to believe it.
There's every reason to love the Samsung Galaxy S9. Honestly. It's all the feedback on the S8 rolled into one super-sleek handset that feels premium, looks like magic and works like magic. It really is something special.
