Samsung Galaxy A9 (2018) hands-on review

13 October 2018
The world's first quad camera smartphone. Kind of has a ring to it, doesn’t it? Depending on how you tally up the snappers, that statement is true and unquestionably so, if you only consider the rear camera setup. Frankly, we can't exactly say we are too surprised. It was more or less a matter of time. But, if we had to place some predictions, our money would have definitely been on a more obscure manufacturer finally polling out the quad camera card, rather than Samsung.

Why woukd someone buy this phone when the OnePlus 6T has top notch specifications such as a Snapdragon 845 chip for a cheaper price?

Anonymous, 28 Dec 2018Just a mirror on the back is enoughBro, mirror will never give the accurate picture....
Also, it makes video calls impossible.... You can't be looking at a mirror.

My idea on the other hand, replaces 2 front cameras with 2 simple motors, which rotate inside the device, not outside.... Saving of cost, space, weight, everything...

600$ are you kidding? wait, waht? euro? ohh sh..t
4 camera is a good way to rip peoples pocket
300$ price is fine, but not for me for samy lovers

Really samsung? Kidding ppl???
Not a 50% of my A7 2017!


Seriously SAMSUNG! Nobody needs a TELEPHOTO LENS! Even GOOGLE doesn't need one! So stop adding this lens and lower your Cost!

Just a Regular Camera and a Wide Angle Camera is already PERFECT! Nobody needs a QUAD CAMERA! That costs the same as a FLAGSHIP phone haha.

It could be a nice camera phone but the "Pro" mode on camera app really sucks.

Can you PLEASE include the shooting aspect ratios in the reviews/previews you do ? Seriously, it's beginning to be silly...
