  • Samsung has confirmed plans to bring its Android 8.0 Oreo update to older Galaxy devices

This week, Samsung's brand-new Galaxy S9 is available for preorder.

As forgettable as Nokia's Windows Phone days were, they introduced several smartphones whose cameras were more capable than anything else on the market. A lot of the Galaxy S9's marketing has revolved around its camera.

As DxOMark notes, the Galaxy S9+ camera has no "obvious weaknesses", going through all of its various tests without any hiccups. "At 91 points the video score is a little lower but still among the best, making the new Samsung an ideal choice for any mobile users who want the best possible still image quality without compromising on video", says DxO.

Well now. That is exactly what I am looking for. And with good reason-the Galaxy S9+ scored 99 points in DxOMark's combined photo and video evaluation, which is the highest ever, and 104 in the photo portion of the benchmark. The difference is that innovative variable-aperture lens on the main camera, plus 2x optical zoom.

DxOMark has also reported that the cameras of Galaxy S9+ have performed exceptionally well in the tests it was put through (both photos and videos) and has no apparent weaknesses.

Samsung has officially taken the top spot for having the best smartphone screen, beating the Apple iPhone X, thanks to that Super AMOLED display in the latest Samsung S9.

Screen testing company DisplayMate has tested the Samsung Galaxy S9, and claims the device broke many display performance records, including Absolute Color Accuracy and the smallest shifts in brightness and colour with viewing angles (including White). DXOMark also rates the video shooting capabilities high, stating that the camera had very good stabilization, fast and accurate autofocus, good noise reduction and detail preservation, and decent white balance.
