For the mobile hardware party, the Samsung Galaxy S series will not be missed at the beginning of the conference. Many people habitually define the Samsung Galaxy flagship series as the machine king, because we can always see the black technology that can lead the industry from these models. The protagonist of today’s evaluation – Samsung Galaxy S9 +, is such a machine.
From the hardware parameters, the Samsung Galaxy S9+ is really not very picky – Quad HD + hyperbolic Super AMOLED full-screen, Qualcomm Snapdragon 845 mobile platform, 960-frame gaze shooting and intelligent variable aperture post-camera, trinity Biometric system, wireless charging, IP68 waterproof and dustproof, etc., can be said to be the benchmark for mobile phone products.
But advanced black technology has also raised the question: Can the existing technology level make these black technologies have a good experience? This year’s Samsung Galaxy S9+ value is not worth buying? Holding a Samsung Galaxy S8, is it necessary to change it? Compared with the previous generation models, what improvements does the Samsung Galaxy S9+ have?
Not much nonsense, through a multi-faceted test, let’s take a look at how the performance of this “machine emperor” ~~
Appearance · Excellence on the basis of previous generations.
Before the release of the Samsung Galaxy S9, there was such an appearance: the new machine will greatly reduce the front panel chin on the basis of the Samsung Galaxy S8, so that the front of the fuselage brings a three-sided borderless visual sense. Of course, this style is not impossible, because the Samsung Galaxy S8 series models have adopted the COP screen packaging process, and there is no technical obstacle to make the left and right borderless. However, it was later reported that the three sides of the border did not meet the requirements of the Samsung drop test, so it changed back to the symmetrical screen design.
But compared to the previous generation, the Samsung Galaxy S9 series models are not unchanged: the front panel forehead and chin have a shortening of more than 1mm, which means that the new machine has a higher screen ratio. In addition, the iris scanner has also been concealed. In addition to the front camera under the forehead glass panel, the other openings have a certain hidden effect, fully taking care of the feelings of patients with intensive phobia.
The overall shape of the fuselage is similar to the Samsung Galaxy S8 series. If you don’t have a concept for the Samsung Galaxy S8, use a cobblestone mellow to describe the image that you believe will be easy to get to it. We can’t see a protruding ridge from the edge of the Samsung Galaxy S9+, so the fit of the palm is very good. The transition of the big arc makes it difficult for us to detect it from the hand. This is actually a thickness of 8.5mm. Mobile phone.
The biggest change in appearance should be at the position of the rear camera and fingerprint recognition module. If it is unfortunate that there is no dual camera on the Samsung Galaxy S8 series, then the Samsung Galaxy S9+ can be said to be with a full selection of black technology. The fingerprint recognition has been moved to the bottom of the double camera. This layout makes it easy for small users to unlock the fingerprint.
From the perspective of perception, such a layout is more in line with the aesthetics of traditional symmetrical design, while the vertical arrangement is more in line with the definition of aesthetics in visual composition. Moreover, sufficient body thickness allows the physical variable aperture lens module to be fully accommodated, and the module frame slightly protrudes from the body to increase the degree of recognition, while at the same time playing the lens and fingerprint recognition module to a certain extent. Protective effects.
For Samsung, the master of the color of the game, the color of the flagship machine has never let us down. The Samsung Galaxy S9 offers a total of three color schemes: Mystery Night Black, Rhine Blue, and Evening Purple. The mysterious night black version is translucent in the black against the glass, and the Rhine blue and the new eve fog purple can have different color representations in different light environments.
The Samsung Galaxy S9+ is surrounded by a matte-finish metal frame with a rounded corner. The right side of the fuselage is the power button, the left side is the volume button and the smart voice button that serves the Bixby intelligent platform alone. The keys are finely crafted, the keystrokes are short and the rebound is quick, and there is a crisp sound feedback after pressing.
As a mobile phone that supports IP68 waterproof and dustproof, Samsung does not have a hole in the Galaxy S9 series. The top of the fuselage is provided with a waterproof one, and the bottom is a 3.5mm headphone jack, a Type-C data interface, a call microphone, and an integrated jacking speaker. In this new machine upgrade, Samsung has worked hard on audio, not only with the AKG professional tuning headphones, but also the earpiece and the bottom speaker constitute a stereo speaker system. The specific sound performance, I will elaborate in the following.
Some people say that the Galaxy S9 series models are difficult to change from the previous generation to the old generation. But as the saying goes, the beauty is not in the skin. The audience of the Samsung Galaxy S flagship series will not only pay attention to the appearance, just like the screen to be said next, which is also a great advantage of the Samsung Galaxy S9 series models.
Screen · Top quality with rich features.
Screen · Top quality with rich features
In the third quarter of last year, the global flexible OLED display market reached US$3.04 billion, of which Samsung, which has a 96.5% share, will naturally not be treated to its own Galaxy S flagship model. This is also the case. The Samsung Galaxy high-end machine should be the only full-screen model with 3D hyperbolism that we can see on the market.
Compared to the previous generation Samsung Galaxy S8+, the screen size has not changed, it is still a 6.2-inch hyperbolic Super AMOLED screen with a resolution of 2960×1440 Quad HD+ and a pixel density of 529ppi. Of course, the default software resolution is still not the highest resolution of the hardware, but it is enough for daily use. Users can adjust the resolution to hardware resolution or lower according to their needs.
From the measured data, this screen can be described as “tough”: in the darkroom environment, the screen manual maximum brightness is about 380nits, such brightness can meet the needs of most use scenarios. Very perverted is the automatic brightness, when the illuminating optical sensor, the average brightness of the screen reaches 637nits. For the brightness of mobile phone screens that are already on the market at 500 nits, this kind of data is really incredible.
The gamut performance has always been the strength of Super AMOLED, and the Samsung Galaxy S9+ is no exception. The measured NTSC gamut coverage reached 101%. The default color temperature of 7412K is currently a neutral, slightly colder color adjustment.
In terms of actual perception, the Samsung Galaxy S9+ is also difficult to pick out. The handwriting image is clear and sharp, the color is warm and beautiful, and thanks to the advanced contrast enhancement function, the screen automatically raises the contrast when used in an outdoor environment, and the details of the display are still clearly visible.
For the hyperbolic Super AMOLED screen features, Samsung has given the Galaxy flagship model a number of features, such as the previously available curved side screen features, including curved side screen panels, side screen flash notifications. On the Samsung Galaxy S9+, we can see that the ecological environment of the curved side panel is more perfect, and the third-party download support also has a large scale; the application of the side screen flash notification is more extensive, and the flash effect also provides effects and colors. Custom settings for four aspects: transparency, width, and width.
Again, this evolution is reflected in the interest screen reminder. The information screen reminder has added more autonomous settings, such as the display content of the screen, the display effect of the screen screen reminder, the clock style setting, the application of the screen widget, and even the display mode and effect of the content of the notification screen. Multiple customizations.
Regarding the setting of the screen, Samsung is still relatively intimate in this regard. The Samsung Galaxy S9+ even provides a function to increase the touch sensitivity to adapt to the use of the film. However, in terms of full screen interaction, Samsung is still relatively conservative. In addition to providing one-hand mode for reducing the picture, the main interaction is still achieved by three virtual button touches, and the screen can be unlocked by integrating the virtual home button of the pressure sensor.
