Samsung Galaxy S9's Camera beats Google Pixel 2 with Record DxOMark Score

Samsung Galaxy S6 Edge owners will get the update to Android 8.0 Oreo

Model Galaxy S9 was "destroyed" both of last year's iPhone in all measured parameters from the web browser to edit photos. The AR Emoji also enables you to create emojis by analyzing a 2D image of the user.

Cameras are one of the fate deciders for a smartphone these days.

For those who aren't familiar, the new Intelligent Scan feature combines Samsung's secure iris scanner with its less-secure facial recognition unlock technology, and works by first scanning your face to unlock and if that fails, it then checks your irises. The Galaxy S9 isn't due out for another couple weeks but that isn't stopping Samsung from collecting some early accolades.

Netanyahu is questioned for five hours
Netanyahu is suspected of acting to benefit internet giant Bezeq, also owned by Elovitch, for favorable coverage on the news site. Ari Harow, a former Netanyahu chief of staff, agreed to testify for the state in the case in exchange for leniency.

Is the DxOMark Mobile benchmark the be-all and end-all of camera quality? No. "The Galaxy S9+ photo score from DxOMark is 104 points - the highest ever photo score from the organization", says Samsung.

All those capabilities are aimed at a population of smartphone users that is increasingly communicating visually rather than via voice or text, according to Tim Baxter, president and CEO of Samsung Electronics North America. "They work together to help you take fantastic photos in any lighting condition and capture everyday epic moments", Samsung said. "The S9 is designed specifically to take advantage of that". That device's screen, which DisplayMate tested previous year, also earned an A+ grade from the company and performed exceedingly well in almost all metrics, and it could keep pace with the Galaxy S9 in a variety of areas, including color accuracy and brightness. The Galaxy S9's display was rated the best by experts at DisplayMate.

Samsung will also release a fast wireless charging stand. They are available in Midnight Black, Coral Blue, and Lilac Purple. In either case, we're talking about minimal differences, but it's still impressive to see that Samsung has been able to up its game so much, especially considering its Galaxy Note 8 scored 5 points lower overall on the same ranking system.
