Samsung Galaxy S9+ wins "Best New Connected Device" award at MWC 2018

Samsung Galaxy S9+ wins
Samsung has just announced that one of its best smartphones ever made, the Galaxy S9+ has been awarded the “Best New Connected Device” title at the annual Global Mobile Awards (GLOMO Awards). In fact, the smartphone received more than 30 awards at Mobile World Congress (MWC) 2018 thanks to its stunning design, advanced camera features, and overall performance.

Aside from the Galaxy S9+, other Samsung products that were recognized at MWC 2018 for their innovative technologies include Samsung Pay, Gear VR with Controller and Samsung DeX. Each of these devices has been praised at the GLOMO and received various awards.

One of the few major handset makers that unveiled its flagship at Mobile World Congress this year, Samsung expects its Galaxy S9 and S9+ smartphones to sell better than the predecessors.

Our review units have just arrived, so expect full reviews for both flagships in the not so distant future. Regardless of our findings, it appears that we already have a winner – the Galaxy S9+, which called dibs on one of the first major awards of the year.

Where are the articles about the S9 having the best screen on the market and best camera?

Phonearena doesn't publish report from displaymate and dxomark. There now you know. Now shut up and tell your other whiny friends to also shut up in the comment section.

They did with the Iphone X. They made a huge fuss about it, making sure to mention that it dethroned the Samsung flagships. They never posted any of that for every single Samsung flagship, which they should, as whenever a Samsung Flagship is tested it has always been deemed the best display they had ever tested at that time. The same is the case for the S9. They tested it and deemed it the best display they had ever tested, just like when they tested the S8, S7, S6 and so on.

Display Mate just updated their website and they are positioning Samsung Galaxy S9 abs S9+ as the best display in a cellphone. Ahead of iPhone X.

DxOmark is bull and rigged. They're not anymore that reliable.

Yeah, they are. They're the most objective camera evaluaters out there. Just because you dislike Samsung, you can't just suddenly deem them invalid. There is a reason it's constantly refered to within the smartphone world, they're a lot more consistent, thorough and accurate than sites like Phonearena.

More consistent than phonearena but you and the rest of the fan girls continue to come here for your mobile news and crap your pants when you don’t get it. There’s better sites to go to but those sites most likely don’t put up with the nerd wars like they do here and ban people....

I come her for news, not for tests. There is a significant difference. If i'm interested in seeing how good a display is, then i look at Displaymate, as they're vastly superior to Phonearena and any other site like this, when it comes to displays. If i'm interested in seeing how good a camera is, then i look at Dxomark, as they're vastly superior to Phonearena and any other site like this, when it comes to displays. Furthermore, i would probably check out SuperSaf on youtube, as he is very objective and makes great videos for showcasing the cameras.

Yes objective, they try to be more scientific. They summarize all tests and come up with the Overall scores but its not the average of all the sub scores. They choose the weight of each subscore in order to come up with the overall score. It's entirely up to them, in that part it is subjective. The overall score can be misleading. Every people needs are unique. And a single score cant speak what the user needs to see.

Then you simply check the individual scores, it's not hard. They're right there, and they even talk about what kind of results lead them to the scores they ended up with. If you look at individual scores, then you'll see the Galaxy S9 dominate in most of those as well. They only have a few categories where they don't win out, but those can easily be fixed with a simple software update.
