Samsung Galaxy S9 and S9+ Plus Camera Review – It’s All Variable

Samsung’s big shtick this year is variable aperture, or the ability for the camera’s main rear sensor to switch between an f/1.5 lens and an f/2.4 lens in real time. Aside from this we’re seeing the first dual camera setup on a Galaxy S-line phone, but it’s only on the larger Galaxy S9+ instead of being on both models. Both phones still feature portrait mode though, but the Galaxy S9+ brings about more options and better quality in this particular mode. We’ll compare the Galaxy S9 vs LG V30S ThinQ, and even the Google Pixel in this video too. What’s the best phone?

Galaxy S9’s powered by a Snapdragon SoC will feature a 12.2-megapixel Sony IMX345 sensor for the main camera, while Exynos powered Galaxy S9 units feature a 12.2-megapixel Samsung ISOCELL SAK2L3 sensor. Samsung is now famously launching the Galaxy S9 with a variable aperture lens, which changes between f/1.5 and f/2.4 depending on light levels. The Galaxy S9+ features a secondary camera on the back with f/2.4 2X optical zoom lens, and all rear cameras on either Galaxy S9 model feature OIS. Snapdragon-powered Galaxy S9’s feature an 8.3-megapixel Sony IMX320 sensor up front, and Exynos powered variants have an 8.3-megapixel Samsung ISOCELL S5K3H1 (the same sensors on the Galaxy S8). Both models feature an f/1.7 lens and autofocus on this front-facing camera.

The gesture swipe is exactly like I feel with this device.
But the low light shot on this is superb. The pixel is just all about noise in low light.

I think they need to increase the megapixel count and relax on the over processing of photos. The 12 mp sensor is just getting old. Increase it to 16 or maybe 18, with an f1.5, with the dual pixel auto focus and I’d think they’d have camera of the year on a smart phone.

Houston Wilson says:

i think the swipe gesture is good in my opinion which is what you should’ve said.

D- Sean says:

I agree about scroll mode style of the camera. Idk why they did that. The only thing I can think of is, they wanted Apple users to switch over and be familiar with the scrolling of the modes

Manilyn Nacpil says:

Trevor Beckett says:
