I learned the hard way that the Samsung Galaxy S9+ is breakable. This dual-glass-sided phone is begging for some protection.
Samsung's new flagship handsets, the Galaxy S9 and S9+, are here and they offer lots to be excited about. Samsung took the wining design of last year's phones and upped the ante with improvements to the chassis, cameras, and software.
Samsung's Galaxy S9+ has a powerful camera that allows you to really flex your creative muscle. We spent an afternoon strolling La Rambla in Barcelona experimenting with some of the camera modes.
In the world a mobile phones, Mobile World Congress is the main event. Taking place each year in Barcelona, it's where the world sees what's in store for phones and networks that year.
Samsung's flagship handset is here and it's a curvaceous, complex piece of consumer electronics. The Galaxy S9+ seemingly has it all: the good looks, the high IQ, and the killer skill set that sets it atop the Android pedestal.

Otherwise the 64 GB standard version suffices well.
Micro SD cards can hold the extra baggage of movable apps to SD and photos as well.

External memory capacity of 400 GB well takes care of 128 GB and 256 GB variants.
