What customers say about "Display"
Samsung Galaxy A9 UK Version SIM-Free Smartphone – Black
  • A very high-quality matrix, which draws, including due to its quality, and photos taken by the device, on the screen they look several times better than on a computer.
  • In this case, it is a high maximum brightness, rich colors, excellent contrast and “real” black color.
  • Very happy with the size of the display. It is convenient and practical.
  • The main disadvantage is a slight inversion of color into green shades when viewed from the side, as well as not quite pure white color, here it is a little gray.
  • I also did not like the work of the light sensor, which in complete darkness increased the brightness of the display to too high values, which unpleasantly struck my eyes at night.

What customers say about "Processor"
Samsung Galaxy A9 UK Version SIM-Free Smartphone – Black
  • A good, efficient chipset, quite careful in terms of energy consumption.
  • The filling in the smartphone is not flagship, but, nevertheless, its capabilities are enough for any modern game on acceptable graphics quality settings with a visually pleasant frame rate.
  • The interface runs smoothly and always quickly. For two weeks of using the smartphone, I did not notice a single slowdown or jerk in the interface.
  • Launching applications is also fast, and 6 GB of RAM allows you to forget about the constant reload of applications, so the performance here is in full order.
  • During games, the case heats up significantly, but only in the area of the camera block.

What customers say about "Camera"
Samsung Galaxy A9 UK Version SIM-Free Smartphone – Black
  • Camera has a bunch of different effects, you can create your own set of icons for messengers (selfimages), as was possible in the flagships from Samsung.
  • The front camera shoots well, there are no complaints. For my taste, the pictures are quite beautiful.
  • One camera is wide-angle, it gives a picture with a coverage of 120 degrees. The main camera is ordinary, but the third one gives an increase in the x2 picture, this is optical zoom.
  • The video device writes decent, although autofocus quite often fidgets and gets lost.
  • One camera can not be considered, since it is used to determine the depth of field, serves for "Live Focus".
