Design and build

The design and builds of Samsung smart phones get better by each released they do. Samsung are ever futuristic with their designs and are never scared of taking risks with this section of their smart phones. Just to mention, Samsung pioneered the curved edge on smart phones. Anyway away from that, the Samsung Galaxy S9 Plus 128 GB somewhat resembles its predecessor the S8. Hear this, there is a rear mounted fingerprint scanner below the dual primary camera(s) and Samsung branding. It has been kept clean as that on the back, maybe the only addition we see is the LED flash that is to the right of the primary camera.

The front features the edge to edge display (curved of course) with very slim top and clean bottom bezels. The top one has the selfie camera, an iris scanner, sensors and call speaker.

It is made of glass and aluminum frames where there isn’t glass.

It is a 6.2 inches phablet device with 1440 x 2960 pixels (529 ppi) resolution, multi touch and corning gorilla glass 5 protection. I love that there is the Always On Display features on this phone to allow you view you notifications and or time without having to turn on your display. A very impressive display it is, probably the best in the market as at now (MAR 2018).
