Is the Samsung Galaxy S9 Unbreakable?

Spoiler Alert: No.

The anticipated Samsung S9 is finally here, available to preorder tomorrow! It will arrive in stores on March 16th, with the S9 starting at $719.99 and the S9 Plus starting at $839.99. Here’s what you need to know:

The Good

Samsung has listened to their loyal customers and moved the fingerprint scanner from the right side of the camera to underneath, for easier access. Small-handed people rejoice, this will make unlocking your Galaxy much more convenient!

The S9 has a 5.8-inch screen, while the S9 Plus has a 6.2 inch screen. As of now, these phones are the biggest and brightest smartphones on the market, beating the 5.5 inch iPhone 8 plus by almost an entire inch.

This phone also has the edge-to-edge display with slim to no bezels, and they’re water resistant like the other new flagships available on the market.

The S9 and S9 Plus also have a fantastic camera, standing out with their software that can actually sense the level of light and automatically switch the aperture for that perfect pic.

Last but not least, the S9 opted to keep the ever-missed headphone jack. Unlike the iPhone X, 8, Pixel 2 XL, or the Huawei Mate 10 Pro, you can keep your old AUX chords, keep your nice noise canceling headphones, and avoid the headache!

The Bad

Samsung took a page out of Apple’s book and introduced an AR Emoji (which looks kind of like a Bitmoji) that can blink, smile, look around, and make faces. However, critics are finding this feature to be less loveable than the Animoji, and even a little creepy! We’ll let you be the judge of that.

While the Samsung S9 comes in some beautiful colors—including Midnight Black, Lilac Purple, Coral Blue and Titanium Gray—the glass back easily collects fingerprints and can look dingy over time. This can be avoided with a case, but many will want to show off the color of their new phone and not hide it behind a box-y plastic.

The Protection

The answer to the biggest question of all is NO, this device is absolutely not unbreakable. Luckily for you, tech21offers the best clear Galaxy S9 case on the market! Slap a Pure Clear case on your beautiful new phone and show off that new flagship.
