Head over to DxOMark to see the full review for the Samsung Galaxy S9 Plus and learn all about its still and video camera capabilities. The S9's screen reflectance of 4.4% is the lowest that DisplayMate has ever measured for a smartphone as well.
It has a similar dual-camera setup as is found in the Galaxy Note 8, but it has a very big new trick up its sleeve, a variable-aperture lens on the main camera. The total score is the average of the points garnered in the still camera and video performance tests but it is in the still camera aspect where the Samsung flagship excelled. "In both still and video modes, it performs well across the board, delivering consistently good photo and video image quality in all light and shooting situations".
The S9 Plus" photos scored particularly well in the areas of "exposure and contrast" and "autofocus" - the latter of which is apparently the best DxOMark has ever tested, alongside other "best ever' results in the "zoom" and "texture" categories.
Raising the bar even higher, the new Galaxy S9's camera has received some significant enhancements, with a 12-Megapixel dual pixel camera on both cameras with optical image stabilisation. Along with the wonderful Photo score, the Galaxy S9+ also scored an outstanding 91 points on the Video score! That device's screen, which DisplayMate tested a year ago, also earned an A+ grade from the company and performed exceedingly well in almost all metrics, and it could keep pace with the Galaxy S9 in a variety of areas, including color accuracy and brightness. DxOMark hasn't, to my knowledge, tested the single camera system in the normal S9. Moreover, you get your $40 activation fee waived if you go the Sam's Club route between March 16-18, when the phones launch.
