Engadget Review

Despite not feeling like a major improvement over last year’s flagship, the Galaxy S9 is still one of the best phones around.

Pros
  • Good cameras especially in low light
  • Superior performance
  • Gorgeous design
Cons
  • No major change since last generation
  • Lacks the Plus’ dual cameras
