  • The new Samsung Galaxy S9 just isn't that new

The Galaxy J8 Plus is no way a competitor for the flagship models like the Galaxy S9 or the Galaxy S9 Plus.

Zack from JerryRigEverything has become famous for his (somewhat extreme) durability tests, and now he's finally gotten his hands on a new Galaxy S9 to put through its paces. You have to take apart the "entire phone" just to get at that panel, iFixit said.

IFixit also criticized the camera setup of the flagship Galaxy smartphone S9+ calling it "more sprawling and awkward looking in comparison" to the iPhone X. They also called the rear-mounted fingerprint sensor disappointing as the teardown nearly ruined the sensor as "it got ensnared in some nasty glue as we pried off the back cover".

Microsoft did the same with the Samsung Galaxy S8 next year. Users can also turn their selfies into emojis. In comparison, the iPhone X bagged a repairability score of 6/10.

The combination of Ayton and Ristic left Metu and Rakocevic, the Trojans' forwards, in foul trouble for most of the second half. It took overtime for the Wildcats to hold on to their ticket to the conference championship, taking down UCLA 78-67.

SK Telecom, the country's No.1 telecom firm by subscribers, saw the number of subscribers with Galaxy S9 phones fall by 577 on the first day of the release on Friday, from the figure for Galaxy S8 subscribers previous year.

The challenge for Samsung can be what to look up next. Meanwhile, the oddly positioned fingerprint reader in the S8 Plus has been moved between the new dual cameras in the S9.

Other interesting features of the devices include super-slow motion videos at 960fps and phase detection autofocus (PDAF). For the uninitiated, DxOMark is considered to be the best and most-regarded photography standard tool.

According to information posted in Samsung Members app, those using the Galaxy A8, Galaxy J3 Prime as well as the Galaxy Xcover 4 will receive Android Oreo somewhere in Q3 2018 and beyond.
