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

Samsung has confirmed plans to bring its Android 8.0 Oreo update to older Galaxy devices

Samsung says this allows S9 to capture 28 percent more light than the Galaxy S8's camera.

Market watchers said the number of preorders for the S9, the larger Galaxy S9 Plus and the V30S ThinQ during the first six hours on the first day did not reach those of their immediate predecessors.

In a number of tests - such as web browsing, writing, data manipulation, and photo editing - the Galaxy S9's Exynos 9810 consistently delivered worse results than the aforementioned chips and devices, which is freaky considering that tests run on the chip itself showed significant improvements over 2017's Exynos chip (that powered the S8, S8+, and even Note 8 smartphones).

While unveiling its newest flagship smartphones at Mobile World Congress in Barcelona yesterday, Samsung also took a few digs at its competitor Apple and that company's latest device, the iPhone X. According to DxOMark, the Galaxy S9+ features a camera setup that hasn't got any obvious weaknesses.

Both the S9's cameras are 12 megapixels, although the main camera has a 1/2.55-inch sensor with its variable aperture lens whereas the secondary camera has a 1/3.6-inch sensor. As far as the Galaxy Note 9 release is concerned, it's likely that we'll soon hear rumors about Samsung releasing the Galaxy Note 9 ahead of schedule.

Scotland backrow Ryan Wilson cited for alleged gouging
Do YOU want to write for GiveMeSport? Playmaker Finn Russell came into the game with a lot of critics. England coach Eddie Jones , along with players from both sides, denied any knowledge of the incident.

In dim conditions the rear camera uses a fast f/1.5 aperture, while in bright conditions the aperture closes to f/2.4 aperture, which improves sharpness and detail.

There's also optical image stabilisation to keep everything tack sharp.

For videos, there is now a new Super Slow-mo feature that increases the shutter speed to a super quick 960fps (frames per second) that enables users to slow the action down by four times. You can check out the full review here.

For fans of emoji, Samsung's new AR Emoji are sure to get you excited as well, letting you create customised animated emoji with your own face.

This is a phenomenal deal on the smartphone that's stealing the show at this year's MWC. As for the Galaxy S9+, that's going for $930 - or $90 more than buying it directly from Samsung. Let us know on Facebook or Twitter.
