The cameras on our mobile devices just keep getting better and better, to the point where for most people, dedicated cameras have almost become obsolete. But, the Galaxy S9 Plus has inched ahead with superior camera performance, earning it a combined score of 99. Is it really going to live up to the hype?

Their official blog states that "DxOMark's Mobile scores and rankings are based on testing every camera using an identical, extensive process that includes shooting almost 1,500 images and dozens of clips totaling more than two hours of video".

I can't believe, Google Pixel 2 and Huawei Mate 10 Pro couldn't even make it to the top 10.

Model Galaxy S9 was "destroyed" both of last year's iPhone in all measured parameters from the web browser to edit photos.

In fact, it's the first smartphone display they have ever tested to get all green (Very Good to Excellent) ratings in every category. Samsung has also struck a very good balance between noise reduction and retention of detail across all light levels. Other high notes came from the "bright and vivid colours" and "fast & accurate autofocus".

Samsung has officially unveiled its brand-new flagship smartphone, the Galaxy S9. The device has managed to score 522 out of 555 points on HTML5 which is better than Galaxy Note 8's score of 488 points and Galaxy S9's score of 517 on the same benchmarking site. The camera also supports super-Slow-Mo recording ideal for capturing every moment, and features personalized AR emoji for a more fun and way of expressing yourself. We'll see if the competition can follow suit. DJ Koh, president of the company's mobile communications division, introduced the S9 family as "the first smartphone built for the way you use your phone today, and the only smartphone with the power to help you reimagine how you'll experience the world tomorrow".
