    The Samsung Galaxy A6+ is built well and has a stellar display and good battery life. However, the heavy and bulky body, unreliable face recognition, and performance issues let it down. Smartphones like the Nokia 7 Plus and Redmi Note 5 Pro are more powerful and offer better value for money.

  • Samsung Galaxy A8+ (2018)

    The new Samsung Galaxy A8+ (2018) will appeal to those who love large screens and minimalist design, but it doesn’t have quite the style of the Galaxy S8 or Galaxy Note 8. The processor is mid-range but there’s 6GB of RAM and 64GB of storage. Highlights include dual front cameras and NFC for Samsung Pay. However, photo quality is quite poor, both with the front and rear cameras. Samsung will have a hard time convincing buyers to choose this phone over its current competition at the same price.

  • Samsung Galaxy A9 (2018)

    The Samsung Galaxy A9 (2018) is the world’s first quad-camera smartphone, and also represents a striking new aesthetic for Samsung. However, the rest of its specifications are weaker than other phones it’s priced up against. If you’re buying it just for the cameras, you should know that the zoom and wide-angle cameras don’t deliver very good results, especially in low light. The primary camera works quite well though. Battery life is good, and the 6.3-inch display is this phone’s biggest highlight. The SoC is weak, and you don’t get flagship-class features. Buy this phone if you like new features that you can show off and play with, but avoid it if you want an all-rounder.
