Samsung Galaxy S9 Pros:

- Another add-on feature of the new Galaxy S9 is its motion-sensing property.
- The slow-motion video capturing feature enables you to add a dramatic effect to your celebrations. Whether it is a simple family get-together or a fun day with your friends, this feature brightens up your video to a new level.
- It also has a virtual-make up feature which helps you to try on a lipstick or other makeup products using the new improved front camera.
- With a higher IQ than its predecessors, Bixby Vision available on this smartphone has included many extra characteristics to it. For instance, any foreign language can be translated to any other language of your choice on-screen via this camera.
- The audio speakers of Galaxy 9 and 9+ are 1.4 times louder than Galaxy S8. In addition to this, they are supported by Dolby Atmos which gives you 3-D like audio experience.

Samsung Galaxy S9 Cons:
- The most common demerit seen in all Samsung products is their tardiness in keeping the products up-to-date with the latest Google software and features. It is yet to be seen if this sluggishness persists in their newly developed Galaxy S9 and S9+.
- The newly added AR Emoji features seem to be a tad overrated as it is not sophisticated and user-friendly compared to that available in iPhone X.
- The bulkiness of the Galaxy S9 and S9+ are much more than its competitors and predecessors and hence it might prove to be difficult for the users to handle them.
- Even with the addition of certain new features and being less expensive than the iPhone X, this new product doesn’t seem to be worthy enough for $720.
- To add further, it has a mediocre battery capacity of only 3100mAh.
In short, like any other gadget available in the market, the latest model of Samsung seems to have its share of pros and cons. Irrespective of all the disadvantages, the minimized radiation effects were seen in all Samsung products always encourage the customers to give them a chance. As per the sources, this Samsung product will be available in the market in three shades, out of which lilac purple and coral blue are known to be standout colors of S9 and S9+. Flaws or no flaws, Samsung has always been a favorite among the users all around the world. Let us hope that the new Galaxy S9 and S9+ endure the same fate as its predecessors and have the best start of the year.
