Wrapping up the Samsung Galaxy A9 (2018) review
First off, I have to give Samsung credit where it’s due – they did something bold with their mid-range series of smartphones this year. By adding more cameras into the vertical stack at the back, that adds a whole new dimension on what type of pictures can be taken with a smartphone.
With that said, the cameras on the Samsung Galaxy A9 (2018) is not particularly great in terms of the quality of images taken. The software is a little weird too, since the Pro mode does not allow to use the ultra wide angle camera or the telephoto camera.
However, the other specs about the Samsung Galaxy A9 (2018) is as advertised – it performs fantastically for a mid-range smartphone, and the fairly large battery is fantastic as well. Let’s not forget that it supports Samsung Pay as well – one of my favorite Samsung-only feature.
When it comes to the price though, Samsung is asking RM1,999 for the Galaxy A9 (2018). That is a little steep considering that there are other smartphones with similar specs that is priced way lower.
So, the main conclusion is this – if you are going to utilize these Samsung features, then the Samsung Galaxy A9 (2018) is a fantastic phone for daily usage and even gaming.
