ASUS VivoBook S14/S15

Design

As for the design, Samsung didn’t change much when it comes to the physical shape and feel. It’s similar to what we have for the Galaxy S8, and it’s no surprise that many people will mistaken the brand new Galaxy S9 for the S8 or vice versa.

Familiar look…

Samsung didn’t fix what’s not broken – and they did fix the fingerprint scanner location. It’s now located at the center, just below the camera. The heart rate sensor remains on the side of the camera, but that’s alright.

The buttons are still around the same location and still feels magnificent to press on. The left side is where the volume rocker and the Bixby button are found, whereas the power button is located on the right side.

None of these buttons are textured so it’ll be quite easy to accidentally press on the wrong button – especially the Bixby key.

See those little dots? They’re helpful.

The smoked TPU case that Samsung included is a boon, too. It has these little dots at the back to prevent the case from making direct contact with the Galaxy S9’s glass back. It might seem trivial, but this is also to prevent scratches. Also, the TPU case has a smoked color to it, so it’s not that prominent when it gets dirty or starts yellowing.

While on the subject of the TPU case, the case accentuates the keys to be a little more prominent so it’s even easier to press.

The entire Galaxy S9 weighs only 160 grams whereas the case adds another 17 grams to the scale.

  1. […] For my test case, I’m using an old router that supports both 2.4GHz and 5GHz N-WiFi and another one D-Link DIR-882 since it is one of D-Link’s greatest router for now. The Unifi that I have here has been boosted to 300Mb/s download and 50Mb/s upload. I’ll also be using Speedtest.net as the benchmark tool. For the receiving end, we used an ASUS GL553VD gaming laptop and also a Samsung Galaxy S9. […]
