Review of Samsung S9

The Samsung S9, though a newer model, is almost the exact same thing with the previous Samsung S8.  The only physical difference is that the phone has a curved edge and feels heavier to hold. Apart from this, every other thing is same physically.

Display and Design

The Samsung S9 is IP68 certified, which means that the phone is dustproof. How cool is that?

Now, you no longer have to live with the fear that your phone could fall into the water and get ruined. With this phone, you can confidently take photos underwater, and both you and your phone will come out completely unscathed.

The Samsung is built with the Gorilla Glass 5, as well as a polished aluminium frame. The gorilla glass is one of the most reliable types of body that can be used for a phone. It guarantees the safety of your phone, in case of a fall.

The Operating System of this phone is the Android 8.0 (Oreo), and it can be upgraded to the Android 9.0 (Pie)

The internal memory size includes 64GB 4GB RAM, 128GB 4GB RAM, 256GB 4GB RAM, while the external memory (memory card slot) can take as much memory space as you like, all of this depending on your preference and budget.

The main camera or the back camera is a 12 MP and 26mm wide, while the selfie camera or the front camera is 8MP and 25mm wide. You have the option of choosing whether you want a single SIM or Dual SIM. Your SIM card must be cut to the Nano SIM size.

The size of this phone is 5.8 inches, or 84.8 cm2, perfect if you want a portable and slim phone.



It also has the noise-cancelling feature, which means that you or the person on the other end of the phone, can be in a very noisy environment and you both will still have a clear communication passage.

Of course, the phone comes with the features of Wi-Fi, hotspot, Bluetooth, GPS, and USB. However, the FM radio feature is only for specific countries like the USA and Canada.

Here is something more interesting about this phone. It comes with both the Iris Scanner and the rear-mounted fingerprint!

This means your phone cannot be accessed without your permission because only you can use either your eye or your fingerprint to unlock it.

You also get the combination of both features in the new Intelligent Scan feature. So without you, nothing can be done. Isn’t that amazing!

Fingerprint Sensor

The position of the fingerprint sensor of the previous Samsung S8 was widely criticised for its position, which was at the back of the phone, right beside the camera.

This means that whenever you unlocked your phone, you may have to smudge your camera. With this in mind, Samsung changed the position of the fingerprint position, still to the back of the phone, but now beneath the camera.


Another thing is that the Samsung Galaxy S9 only comes with a 3, 000mAh battery capacity, which is not a lot. However, the phone makes up for it with the fast charging (Quick Charge 2.0) and its ability to save power.

What is the Price of Samsung S9 in Nigeria?

In Nigeria, the cost of the phone ranges from ₦196,000 to ₦305,000., although the exact amount varies from one store to the other. Another determinant of the price of this phone is storage space.

Like with Apple phones, the Samsung S9 is made with different amounts of storage space, and so the cost of a 64GB will be different from that of a 256GB. Therefore cost varies from one storage space to another.


Another thing that may determine the exact cost of your smartphone is whether you are getting a single SIM phone or a dual SIM phone. So, keep all of this in mind when you want to buy your Samsung S9.
