Samsung Galaxy S9 Review: First Impressions

From what we have seen so far there is not much change compared to the previous model. At least as far as screen and design are concerned. Okay, we have a slightly more powerful processor. We also have a brutal camera that allows super slow motion recordings of 960fps, AR and Bixby animated emojis with more augmented reality functions.

However, it will be necessary to think if these changes are enough for those who already have a Galaxy S8. Or for those who are thinking of buying one. Would you be willing to pay the difference of a few hundred euros for these new features?

We have a great smartphone in front of us. One of the best of the year. I personally think it's great, but the question is: Is this the phone we need in the here and now? Is a smartphone necessary?
