  • First f/1.5 aperture on a smartphone
  • Dual Aperture technology works like the human eye
  • 960fps is wow

The camera of Samsung Galaxy S9 Plus features a built-in mechanism that halts any movement or shaking in your hands when trying to take a photo. That means it can help a lot in less blur in your photos, especially when lights are not good. In these type of situation how the camera works? The camera will normally hold the shutter open a tiny bit longer. Both lenses on the S9+ take benefits from OIS. Samsung Galaxy S9 Plus features a 1/2.5 in Dual Pixel sensor.

The real advantage that you can get from the camera of Samsung Galaxy S9 Plus is that it boosts low-light photography. Its camera shines out in many ways such as magnificent camera results and pictures are better than iPhone X and Google Pixel 2 XL. The Samsung Galaxy S9 increases so much brightness and beauty that you cannot even believe that it is a picture of yourself which is some kind of lie.

Pictures out of the selfie camera of Samsung Galaxy s9 Plus are bright, however too high in saturation. It enhances too much beauty even at the scale of 2 it does wonder but in a very fake way. I would recommend iPhone X or Google Pixel at least they show real image of yourself.
