Design and Display

Ideally ,the smartphone has a similar build to that of the Samsung Galaxy S9 and the rest of Samsung’s flagship. On the notion of flagship build, the smartphone has a metallic body encased in glass with the curved edges at the back. The smartphone is a bit on the big side but not as big as the Galaxy Note 9 anyway. As you might have guessed the glass is a smudge magnet and has vertically aligned cameras grouped into pairs at the left side.

As usual there is the minimal bezels around the screen which is a big one by the way. Dubbed the infinity display like you have on the Samsung Galaxy S9 Plus. Also, the smartphone features an AMOLED display which is very much the best type of screen around. Sized at 6.3- inch and without the notch some people dislike with a full HD+ resolution compliment.

Battery and Camera

There is a fair battery size on the smartphone sufficient enough for till the end of the day use. Hitting the 3, 800mAh mark, the battery can take some long hours of use depending on how intensive it is. That aside, there is fast charge on board through the USB Type-C port.

The most controversial feature on the smartphone is its camera which goes up to five in number. The four cameras at the back each serves different functions. Separate features that can be achieved through software implementation are accorded to each camera. There is the depth sensing 5MP camera, 10MP telephoto canera, 8MP ultra wide camera and a 24MP main camera with PDAF and autofocus. Over to the front, there is a 24MP front camera handling business and some cool features like AR emoji and some AI tweaks.

Hardware and Software

On the inside, there is a mid-level chipset from the American chipset maker –Qualcomm which is fairly capable to handle most of the day to day tasks. However, the Qualcomm Snapdragon 660 processor is not as snappy has the ones in high-end smartphones like the Samsung Galaxy Note 9. Customarily, there is the Adreno 512 GPU in the mix with 128GB internal storage space. The RAM size on the smartphone varies from 6GB to 8GB depending on the region you’re buying from. Moreso, it has a dedicated memory card slot for expansion up to 512GB and runs on Android 8.1 Oreo with Samsung UI.
