Top features of the Samsung Galaxy S9
Just like any Samsung smartphone, the Galaxy S9 is packed full of cutting-edge features and fun improvements that make using the device an absolute joy. One of the most standout features though is its camera. In their review of the Galaxy S9, WIRED went so far as to state: “The best part of this phone? It’s the camera.” So what’s so special about it?
Samsung themselves claim that the camera on the Galaxy S9 is the most advanced that they have ever produced, boasting this as the flagship feature of the handset. The Dual Aperture lens is perfect in any type of lighting, from dazzling daylight sunshine to super low mood lighting, it purportedly adapts just like a human eye would. Users can, therefore, enjoy snapping vibrant and eye-catching pictures even in dark conditions, thanks to the F1.5 aperture mode.
On top of this, the camera also features super slow-mo video capabilities; the ability to supply real-time translations of signs in foreign languages, and an Intelligent Scan that recognises your face and iris to unlock your phone. Plus, the augmented reality feature of the phone allows you to take a selfie or capture a video as an emoji. The camera therefore combines brilliant innovation with the fun factor.
Its camera isn’t the only thing going for the Samsung Galaxy S9. The 5.8inch Quad HD + Super AMOLED Infinity Display may look like previous Galaxy models, but it packs brilliant new and improved features. It comes with built-in stereo speakers complete with Dolby Atmos surround sound. It also retains its 3.5mm headphone jack, so unlike the newer iPhone releases, Galaxy S9 users will still be able to listen to their tunes on the go.
Other noteworthy features include a new Lilac Purple colour option, as well as a larger 6.2-inch screen available in the Galaxy S9+.

Considerations when choosing Samsung Galaxy S9 contract deals
When it comes to Samsung Galaxy S9 deals, the phone is available on monthly and pay as you go contracts from a variety of different network providers. You can also choose to buy the device as a SIM free purchase, although it is one of the more expensive models to buy outright.
Ultimately, the type of deal that is right for you depends on several different factors, including how much you want to pay upfront, the cost of monthly payments, for how long you want to be tied into a contract, and the minutes, texts and data allowances you require each month. All this can sometimes get a bit confusing, especially when you consider just how many different network providers there are to choose from nowadays. Luckily, that’s where Hoppy comes in.
