There are several good and bad reasons whether you "want to buy" or "not to buy" this newly launched smartphones of Samsung. Based on my initial assessment on the phone I can say that; in a good reason, an eye-candy kind of phone. Aside from the fact that it's the latest from Samsung, it's also packed with new technological advancement in smartphone arena. Samsung claims that they "reimagined"
the whole concept of their camera. It now sports "dual aperture"
lenses (F 2.4 and F 1.5) that adopts like the human eye, according to Samsung. One of the advancement in imaging technology, and the coolest
yet, is the 960 fps image processing of the S9 and S9+. If Apple has "Siri"
then Samsung has "Bixby"
, an online live translator application. Apple isn't alone when it comes to personalized emoji, Samsung had developed "AR Emoji"
of the user and use it on social media or even personalized messaging. Another cool thing with Samsung's S9 and S9+ is that they didn't eliminate the 3.5 mm headphone jack that's absent on the other competing brand. Advantage of having 3.5 mm jack is that you have the luxury to use different kinds of earphones, headphones, and earplugs that are compatible with the earphone jack, specially when the stock earphone is damaged or broken. As far as security is concerned, Samsung's S9 and S9+ has two choices whether to use face ID or the fnger print scanner located at the back of the phone, below the rear camera lenses. One good reason to make your smartphone packed with security features not just relying on your face that's undergoing physical changes over time.
Not good reason to buy Samsung's new flagship phones is because of its pricing. It's price offering cost an arm and a leg, specially to those common people like me
, that are just minimum wage earners only. If you currently have or own the predecessor of this phone, I think it's unwise to switch to this new one. Well, if you have the means to acquire then why not, right? Another reason is that Samsung's development of smartphones are so rapid. In the span of 6 months to 1 year Samsung will launch a new smartphone again that is more advance and more intelligent than its predecessors.
Lastly, if you have the means to acquire this highly sophisticated phones then go for it. But always think of the Return of Investment (ROI)
protocol, because this phones will only last in limelight for about a year and there will be another one to emerge on the market.
