The functionality of a modern smartphone is one of the most important features for a user of the device. The set of functions is determined by the software installed on the smart phone. Software from Microsoft is not the first decade is in great demand among computer users. And the software giant began offering Galaxy S9 customers that its applications are preinstalled for.
Microsoft began selling customized Galaxy S9 and Galaxy S9 + models, Samsung's flagship smartphones that had already been reviewed and running Android, presented by the leader of the smart phone market at the recent exhibition of mobile technologies MWC 2018. Both devices are now available for purchase by consumers directly in the Microsoft Store. In more detail, this topic was considered by Dominik Bosnjak on the pages of the androidheadlines.com resource.
The device software is customized by a number of mobile applications from Microsoft. It should be noted that these smartphones are not called “Microsoft Edition”, because Samsung previously opposed the addition of the brand of another company to the name of its products, regardless of whether any applications from Microsoft were preinstalled and whether devices directly sold to the developing operating system Windows company.
Both new flagship smartphones from Samsung became available for pre-order in the Microsoft Store. Their supplies will begin next Friday, March 16, 2018. However, it is on this day that the Galaxy S9 line debuts on the world market.
The price of a smaller font is $ 719.99. A smartphone with a large screen size costs $ 839.99. At the first boot of the operating system, applications from the software giant, including Microsoft Launcher, previously known to users under the name Arrow Launcher, will be installed on each of the two devices purchased through Microsoft. Microsoft's new versions of the new flagships from the South Korean technology giant are based on Qualcomm's Snapdragon 845 chipset and have a 64GB capacity of a built-in flash drive.
The new flagship is an example of the embodiment of gorgeous technologies in consumer devices, which are discussed in more detail by TheStreet.  For a long time, Samsung is the world's largest supplier of OLED display panels. Similar panels are also offered by LG Display and AU Optronics, but OLED displays from Samsung are widely considered the best offers in its class. Testing software company DisplayMate named Samsung's supplied for the iPhone X OLED-displays the best displays of phones that they ever had to test. In this case, the S9 displays are considered even better in terms of the correctness of the color rendering, brightness, color gamut and reflectivity of the screen.
Many cameras were delighted with new phones. As already known to connoisseurs of new technologies, the S9 Plus camera, equipped with two lenses, scored 99 points in testing DxOMark. And this is the highest result that the smartphone camera ever showed.
Samsung used in this camera proprietary image sensors that support variable aperture to f / 1.5, which allows to improve the quality of shooting in low light. In addition, the S9 camera is capable of shooting video at a resolution of 720p at an impressive speed of 960 frames per second.
The location of the fingerprint scanner is also more convenient than in the Galaxy S8.
For years, Samsung has sought to its phones were different from other vendors' offerings, and reduced dependence on Google applications and services. To this end, consumers were offered alternative applications and cloud services (perhaps some users still remember Samsung Music Hub?). Significant changes were also visible in the user interface, which is in the Samsung shell by the software shell located on top of the Android operating system.
But for users placing on top of the operating system new S9 user interface from the vendor of devices may mean that they will receive updates to the operating system later , than owners of smartphones from the search giant Google, and also Nokia and Lenovo. Each of these companies prefers to pre-install the stock Android OS or software that is very close to the pure version of the platform to the consumers it offers to consumers.
Among the important features of the new Galaxy S9 are AR Emoji, which are similar to Animoji, previously found use in the iPhone X These functions allow the user to create animated emoji simulating the expression on his face. But in S9 there is no TrueDepth system, typical for the Apple camera device, which increases the attractiveness of the new function.
