Samsung's Galaxy S9 has the best display of any smartphone, DisplayMate finds

Samsung Galaxy S6 Edge owners will get the update to Android 8.0 Oreo

The device has the highest-rated camera on a smartphone with an overall DxOMark score of 99. However, the crowning jewel in the new generation phones is its camera. The Galaxy S9 Plus's video performance earned a more modest but passable 91 rating, which seats it slightly above the iPhone X and below the Google Pixel 2 for shooting video.

The iPhone has won in virtually every test against the newer Galaxy S9, sometimes with huge margins, but the S9 has performed worse than many other devices' chipsets, too.

The Galaxy S9 and Galaxy S9+ are iterative updates to last year's Galaxy S8 models and they come with the latest hardware enhancements.

In comparison, Apple's Face ID on the iPhone X creates a complex 3D scan of your facial pattern, rather than a 2D map of the face as used by Samsung. The Galaxy S9+ features dual 12MP sensors with support for OIS and f/2.4 aperture. The researcher added that the Galaxy S9's screen is brighter than any other smartphone it tested and has the highest possible contrast ratio.

Samsung officially took the wraps off its Galaxy S9 and S9 Plus during an on-stage "Unpacked" event at the Mobile World Congress, which runs today through March 1.

On a general aesthetic level, Samsung did not actually change at all compared with the previous Samsung Galaxy S8.

And yet despite all of these exciting new features, there's only one that you're going to really care about and that is that it can turn you into an emoji. The Galaxy S9 can also record super slow-motion video for some seriously dramatic footage that can impress your friends and family.

Unless you are a power user who loves, or needs, the latest tech features, then phones such as the A8 are the best buy. This is what makes him believe that there was something wrong with the Samsung Galaxy S9 demo unit that he tested.

Is the DxOMark Mobile benchmark the be-all and end-all of camera quality? No.

Including brand new features the company has not equipped before, the phone is said to be the future best smartphone Samsung Electronics has released to date.
