    Engadget Review

    Samsung’s improvements to its latest flagship work as promised, but don’t feel like features that you’d miss by not upgrading. Still, thanks to blazing performance, solid cameras and long battery life, the Galaxy S9+ continues to uphold the S series’ reputation for excellence.
