Samsung’s Galaxy S9 is a worthy rival to the iPhone X
- Samsung’s Galaxy S9 features a great camera, good battery life and tons of bells and whistles.
- It’s a nice upgrade if you have a Galaxy S7 or older, but Galaxy S8 owners don’t need to make the jump.
- Samsung needs an iPhone X-like product in its Galaxy S range.
Samsung’s Galaxy S9 is the best phone to launch in 2018 — so far. It’s loaded with more features than most people will ever use (or perhaps even want).
There’s something for everyone in the Galaxy S9 and Galaxy S9+, which I’ll refer to simply as the Galaxy S9 for ease. The display is the best I’ve ever seen on a phone, it finally packs stereo speakers, and, yes, still has a headphone jack.
However, I don’t think that it’s necessary to upgrade from other great phones that launched in the last year.
