Samsung Galaxy S9 vs Pixel 2 Camera Comparison: Superior Hardware Still Cannot Beat Google’s Software
The 12MP rear camera of the Pixel 2 is pure magic. Thanks to Google’s HDR+ algorithm, the phone is able to capture some amazing photos that would not have been possible a year or two ago. And then, there’s the Galaxy S9. After not making any noticeable improvements to the Galaxy S8’s camera, Samsung is back in the game this year with the dual-aperture camera of the Galaxy S9.
With the Samsung Galaxy S9 and Galaxy S9+, the Korean company has further worked on refining its software which has always remained its Achilles heel. Over the last few years though, Samsung has been making slow and steady progress in this regard to improve the overall user experience of its UI.
The Samsung Galaxy S9 and Galaxy S9+ like the Korean company’s previous flagships are made primarily out of glass. Samsung has improved the durability of its latest flagship handsets by using a thicker glass and a larger aluminum chassis on the edge.
It looks like the modest improvements the Galaxy S9 packs over its predecessor has failed to attract new customers. A new report from Korea claims that the first day sales of the Galaxy S9 in South Korea were only about 70 percent of that of the Galaxy S8.
The Galaxy S9 is a stunning handset to look at with its premium glass design. This is further helped by the variety of colors that Samsung sells the phone in. YouTuber JerryRigEverything, however, wanted his Galaxy S9 to look even cooler so he went ahead and made the rear glass on the device completely transparent.
