The Galaxy S9 will be more than perfect
Considering the present generation Samsung Galaxy S8, it is the first time that we feel that Samsung brings the real juice to the processing capacity that it has and not that it needs to be able to handle the extra load of all the bloatware that the company has traditionally installed in their equipment. Therefore, Samsung Galaxy S9 to get the juice too.
Compared to previous equipment the S8 comes with an Android “almost” pure. The implementation of Nougat is magnificent and the response times and ease of use of the latest version of the operating system is 100% usable on this device. Yes, the S8 comes with the Google applications and those of Samsung – which many times do the same – and now, moreover, with those of Microsoft Office. But it’s not like a couple of years ago that it was practically impossible to delete them, and the skin that came with Android destroyed the operating system experience and slowed down the device. And, we seriously want Samsung to work this up in the next Samsung Galaxy S9.
Now with the S8, Samsung has decided to respect Android in what it does well and complement it with what thanks to hardware and its services (e.g. Samsung Health) can add value. The screen – appropriately named Infinity Display – is a dream. The photos and videos do not seem to end thanks to its curvature and browsing on any website is a delight because it occupies 84% of the face of the phone as the 529 pixels per inch of density gives it a sharpness almost magical. There are rumors for the next generation Infinity Display in the Galaxy S9, and if it will be true then Samsung can take over other brands.
Thanks to its elongated size (has a ratio of 18.5: 9) the multitasking option is now user-friendlier, and the split screen content does not feel “stale.” The always on display option which we have already been seeing since some models are becoming more useful – minimal and not intrusive but useful. And the fact that the Home button comes embedded in the screen allows it to take the entire bottom of the device creating more usable space. Samsung should avoid the home button in the Galaxy S9 as well.
Why not take advantage of the introduction of the fingerprint sensor and allow it to work on the entire screen? Those of us who use 3D Touch on iOS know how powerful it can be and we think even though there is a first approximation here, the fact that it is limited to the start button is a pity – clearly attributable to Android and not to Samsung – and a missed opportunity. We dreamed that the fingerprint reader came integrated to the screen, but everything seems to indicate that technically was not possible and this forced Samsung to put it on the back of the computer. The serious work on the placement of finger print sensor can fix everything for the Samsung Galaxy S9.
