The Samsung Galaxy S9 and S9+ claimed to have reimagined the camera. So, the NowThis team decided to investigate and find out if the camera reimagined is really what they imagined it would be.
First, they explored the slow motion feature, which records videos at an incredible 960 frames per second, compared to the iPhone’s 240 frames per second. Unfortunately, it was pretty difficult to catch superfast moments on camera to create a slow-motion video.
Next, they tried the low-light feature. Samsung developed the first variable aperture for a smartphone, so you can take photos on low light. Overall the team enjoyed the low-light photos, claiming that they’d make an excellent artsy Instagram photos.
Finally, they tried the AR Emoji feature, which essentially turns your face into an animated emoji. They found that the face-tracking feature, which makes the emoji’s face move with your face, was pretty cool, but that the emoji-ed version of themselves was a bit freaky.
Overall, they thought Samsung did some amazing things with the camera, in fact, it’s probably the best smartphone camera that most of them had ever seen. There are plenty of cool features to play around with, so if you’re looking for an upgrade, maybe consider the S9/S9=.
