McAfee to protect Samsung Galaxy S9, other devices

Can Nokia's Breezy New Sirocco Phone Stand Up To Samsung's Mighty Devices?

Those that got to try out the new Samsung Galaxy S9 devices have been posting some of the images online. The devices come with cutting edge specifications and the signature Infinity display from Samsung.

This is a unique feature of Galaxy S9 that makes it different from other flagship phones available.

We've got our hands on the latest model, and think it's the most attractive phone Samsung has ever produced, with a lightning-fast processor and fantastic camera.

The S9 camera can switch between two apertures, with the option for 28pc more light availability in dark conditions and less for glaringly bright days. One can also manually choose between the two in the manual mode.

For the uninitiated, the Samsung Galaxy S9 and S9+ succeeds the Galaxy S8.

In fact, with a cost of £869 SIM-only, the S9+ is £130 more expensive than the standard £739 Galaxy S9. This also works great.

Samsung's answer is AR Emoji, and it advances the idea with a cartoon that looks kind of like you. This is rather similar to the Animoji feature rolled out by Apple for the premium iPhone X.

Once you have created your own Emoji, you can record videos or photos using the AR Emoji.

There's also a 3.5mm headphone jack along with the a USB-C port on the phone, unlike the Nokia 8, which only features a USB-C port for music and charging needs.

Samsung's virtual assistant, Bixby, has also found some Google Assistant-like upgrades. It is worth to note that AKG are now part of Samsung family after the Harmon acquisition previous year. For a more immersive experience, the speakers are equipped with Dolby ATMOS surround sound technology. However, the Nokia 8 does lose out when it comes to the front camera set-up as it only brings a 5-megapixel camera as opposed to the 8-megapixel one on the S9.

Last year, Samsung was embroiled in controversy around the Note 7's hazardous battery problems but, following the success of the S8 and Note 8, the company was primed to unveil its S9 flagship model at Mobile World Congress 2018 in Barcelona.

While Sirocco is the flagship of a five device line-up by Nokia launched with the aim of gaining control over the market, the Galaxy S9 represents a device that carries on its shoulders the weight of expectations of the current market leader of the smartphone market.
