Literally, there are some interesting points that truly justify the Galaxy S9’s high retail price in the market. Here are a few of them.
OnePlus has launched its latest Android smartphone model in the form of OnePlus 6. The device is featured with the top specifications and living true to its name.
Yet, there are some other factors and features where the OnePlus 6 falls down in front of Samsung and iPhone. And that’s also the reasons why the Galaxy S9 and the iPhone X retail prices are higher in the smartphone market than the OnePlus 6.
Talking about Samsung Galaxy S9, here we have listed five reasons why Samsung smartphones overcome the OnePlus, justifying its lead in the Android market and maintaining higher price tag.
Display is the major feature behind the success of Samsung flagship smartphones in the market. It has brought a revolutionary technology change in the industry of smartphones, with its curved S7 edge display. Moving forward on it, the company expand the curved display feature to cover the maximum area on the smartphone and introduced Infinity Display in its Galaxy S8 model. Samsung stands apart with this feature from the rest of features offered by other companies in the market.
Infinity display is just hypnotizing to look at. It just vanish the whole purpose of having an edge in a android smartphone. Its a complete edge-to-edge display covering the maximum area on the screen.
Moreover, Samsung uses its own technology in displays i.e. the super AMOLED display for max resolution. Samsung Galaxy S9 have 2960×1440 pixels resolution. On the other hand, OnePlus 6 offers only 2280×1080 pixels resolution, emphasizing an extensive difference in the display quality.
Samsung is well known for its best low-light photography camera for couple of years. When Samsung launched Galaxy S9 in February the model was widely honoured to carry the best camera features like variable aperture, variable focus, slow-motion capturing and couple of other features in the device, even competing iPhone.
On the other hand, OnePlus 6 cameras should not be underestimated, but like other companies OnePlus 6 also relies on AI enhancements to generate high quality images. The difference is visible in the natural and AI enhanced quality of images. This is also one of the reason that DSLR cameras are still favoured for photography.
Water resistant, not a drop to fear
The Samsung introduced IP68 water and dust resistance technology in Galaxy S9. The technology is so powerful that there is no effect in operability even device merged in an average filled pool. On the other side, OnePlus 6 have no such resistant technology in smartphones. However, Company claims that smartphone can be used with most of the water splashes like using with wet hands or in the rain and so.
Splashing pack of Features
The Samsung smartphones are overloaded with amazing features through and through. Even after a long time, using a smartphone, you need to explore other unexplored features embedded in the device. Galaxy S9 offers amazing features like voice assistant Bixby (Samsungs own), an edge bar, AR Emojis, Gear VR support, Dex Pad support, slow-motion GIFs, screen resolution, blood pressure monitor, dual messenger, and many more.
In this aspect, on the other hand OnePlus 6 lack behind. However, the smartphone has all the latest Android features, but there is nothing extra features that company offers apart from the regular features in the smartphones.
