Samsung Galaxy S9 Plus scores 99 on DxOMark, for what it's worth


The new Galaxy S9+ performed very well in all of the DxOMark tests, and they even added that it "is a smartphone without any real weaknesses in the camera department".

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.

Redesigned with a new dual aperture lens that powers an innovative low light camera technology, Super Slow-mo video capabilities and personalised AR Emoji, the Galaxy S9 and S9+ ensure that "you never miss a moment and make your everyday epic", the statement notes.

The team of "rejects" was led by John Shuster who had been cut by USA Curling after a disappointing performance in Sochi in 2014. Entering the tournament, Canada had reached the gold medal match at five straight Olympics, winning the past three.

Previously, the Google Pixel 2 held the top spot on DxOMark with 98 points. The total score is the average of the points garnered in the still camera and video performance tests but it is in the still camera aspect where the Samsung flagship excelled.

The Galaxy S9+ gets DxOMark's highest score when it comes to stills. Given just how good Samsung's AMOLED panels are, we can certainly understand this, but it's just interesting to see the same thing said every year. According to a report from the company, the S9 screen not only gets the award for Best Performing Smartphone but also gets the company's "highest ever A+ rating". Samsung says that the "Dual Aperture" works in the range of "F1.5 / F2.4" and automatically lets in more light when it's dark and less light when it's too bright to capture photos that are crisp and clear. The Galaxy S9, on the other hand, has a single rear camera with same specifications. Along with the awesome Photo score, the Galaxy S9+ also scored an outstanding 91 points on the Video score! The video score is 91, which DxOMark rates as among the best. "With the Galaxy S9 Plus, Samsung is setting the pace for 2018". Both the smartphones are scheduled to launch in India on March 6.
