Samsung Galaxy S9 Plus takes best camera crown from Google Pixel 2

Samsung Galaxy S9 Plus takes best camera crown from Google Pixel 2

Previously the Google Pixel 2 XL had the highest score of 98 points on the DxOMark mobile photography tests, which looks at both stills and video quality on the smartphone camera.

We've already had a few months to get used to the iPhone X.

Irish warn May: adopt customs union to end Brexit border impasse

But enough about the camera, the Galaxy S9 also features surround sound stereo speakers that envelops you in Dolby Atmos sound bringing extra clarity to your mobile listening experience.

The Samsung Galaxy series is arguably one of the best phones that Samsung has to offer and is in constant rivalry with Apple's flagship, the iPhone.

All those capabilities are aimed at a population of smartphone users that is increasingly communicating visually rather than via voice or text, according to Tim Baxter, president and CEO of Samsung Electronics North America. The photo score is 104 while the video score is 91. "The S9 is designed specifically to take advantage of that". The camera is said to have performed impressively across all photo and video test categories. First it was with 4K 30fps video that Samsung allowed you to only capture five minutes of at a time, and now the same restrictions go to the newfangled 4K 60fps standard. Samsung even designed a dedicated dynamic random access memory (DRAM) for the camera to process data for photographs without having to send it to the phone's main RAM.

You'll be able to buy it in three colours: Midnight Black, Coral Blue and Lilac Purple and while there's no United Kingdom pricing just yet, expect it to be completely in line with Samsung's last flagship phone (so around £700).

The Galaxy S9 Plus autofocus system is not the very fastest we have tested, but close to the best, and also produces very repeatable results.
