Samsung’s flagship Samsung Galaxy S9 was released in March 2018. Although it was one of their most expensive smartphones, still Samsung lovers couldn’t resist buying that handset. Samsung really needs to justify the staggering cost because some of the Samsung Galaxy S9 features are really worst. Let’s discuss them one by one.
Worst Samsung Galaxy S9 Features
- Galaxy S9’s native apps aren’t good enough
The built-in keyboard, browser and messaging apps of Galaxy S9 aren’t as good as compared to Google’s Gboard keyboard, Chrome, andread and reply to text messages on your desktop as well as your phone because there is no such option of syncing your browsing history across the phone and desktop as well. Samsung Apps don’t lay out better. They are not faster in use as compared to Google Apps. They even don’t have Accurate autocorrection option.
- S9’s alarm clock really need a Wake-up call
Alarm tones let you fell in sweet slumber because they are just too smooth and gentle. The only way that can wake you up is the Bixby News Briefing that talks to you aggressively as a cyclone. If you set a new alarm, say an additional wake-up time for the weekends, the Galaxy S9 won’t carry over your preferences. Adding a new alarm turns the Bixby News Briefing on and your alarm tone off. So, Samsung’s alarm clock really needs a wake-up call.
- Dead zones on Galaxy S9’s Screen
There are places on the screen where you need to tap repeatedly for anything to happen, especially on the left edge where the screen curves. Don’t know whether this is a reported dead zone or an issue with the curve registering the fingerprints, but it happens enough to make things annoying.
- AR Emoji is creepy and super limited
The animated emoji maker for the Galaxy S9 and S9 Plus, called AR Emoji is really
- Galaxy S9’s Bixby Voice button is not customizable
You can turn off Bixby Voice, but you can’t replace it with any other app you’d rather use instead, which makes that button totally useless.
Samsung should work on these addressed features so that they can be fixed for the new smartphones like S10.
