    Answered By Pranav Dutta | 2 months ago
    The Samsung Galaxy S9 Plus has only dual primary camera with a 12+12MP set. There is a single 8MP front camera. Though the megapixels are less in the front camera, the clarity is amazing and it gives flawless selfies. It is a must buy for a Samsung fan as this is the best Premium flagship in the market.

    I will recommend you Samsung Galaxy S9 Plus. It comes with a large 6.2-inch Super AMOLED display which outputs a screen resolution of 1,440 x 2,960 pixels. Under the hood is a Samsung Exynos 9 Octa 9810 chipset assisted by 6GB RAM which gives the best performance in the class.

    A dual camera setup (12MP +  12MP) at the back captures superb quality images and videos. It supports 4K video recording and can record at a speed of 30 frames per second. An 8MP selfie camera also captures sharp quality images. The primary camera also comes with a variable aperture to capture better low light images. The smartphone is packed with a 3,500mAh Li-ion battery which helps keep it running for around 25 hours. The Samsung Galaxy S9 Plus is one of the best smartphones in this price segment.
