Galaxy S9+ Samples

It was running a bit late when I got my hands on the Galaxy S9+. By the time I started shooting with it, the sun has set, leaving me with mostly low light shots.

Remarks

Samsung did a great job with their camera technology for the Galaxy S9 and Galaxy S9+. They managed to improve what was widely considered one of the best mobile phone cameras in the flagship’s predecessors. Colors were punchy and images looked sharp. One of the bigger improvements I have noticed during my time with the devices was in low light photography. The large f/1.5 aperture helped bring out more colors and details compared to past flagships.
