The Galaxy S9 Plus is considered a incremental upgrade from the Galaxy S8 Plus, but that’s not to mean the few new features it brings to the table aren’t worth your hard-earned cash – even if there isn’t a flashy new design to go with them. That said, we can’t help but think that Samsung could have pushed the envelope a little further, rather than relying on some mediocre additions to drive sales. Here’s why.
Samsung’s radical transformation of its ‘S’ series last year was the start of a new trend in phone design. While there had been attempts to rid phones of a thick bezel before, none felt quite as natural and well-thought-out as Samsung implementation. For example, the LG G6 felt unfinished with its poorly circled screen edges, and Xiaomi’s Mi Mix 2 sacrificed functionality by forcing you to flip the phone around to take a selfie.
