- Page 9: Wrapping up the Samsung Galaxy A9 (2018) review
Let’s first look at what Samsung wants us to pay attention to – the back of the phone. The Galaxy A9 (2018) is one of those phones that follow the latest smartphone trends, and that is gradient colored smartphone at the back.
Samsung does it differently, though. The one we have with us for review is called the Bubblegum Pink that has a gradient that goes from a pale pink at the top to a dark pink at the bottom. There is a Lemonade Blue color option as well, which is lime at the top and dark blue at the bottom.
The Galaxy A9 (2018) is not a small phone at all as it has a 6.3-inch screen with the iconic Samsung 18.5:9 aspect ratio Infinity Display. And the displays are not curved, hence the phone does feel a lot bigger. Since it is boxier compared to its Galaxy S-series brethren, it feels thicker as well.
The included TPU case does offer more than sufficient amount of protection since it is really thick. It does have a dark tint on it too, as opposed to many other smartphones that come with a transparent TPU case.
It even has a film screen protector pre-applied, so it does offer complete protection out of the box when you put on the TPU case.
The cutouts are excellent and offers a very comfortable grip on the hand. It does have the little dots that face inwards as well.
