It is definitely one of the best pick for the one who love design; the gorilla cornering gives a glossy look with the light and faded colors.

The back is made up of glass but wireless charging is a missing thing in the phone.

The first camera comes with 24 Mega-pixels, AF, F1.7, 2X optical zoom which means only the first camera is capable to zoom 2X + 10 Mega-pixels is added by the second camera AF, F2. And add on to ultra wide angle to capture shots larger than the ordinary frame. + The third camera contributes 8 Mega-pixels F2.4 + and the last and fourth camera comes with 5 Mega-pixels, F2.2 and Depth which gives more sharpness to the images that you capture.

If we ignore the price of the phone for once then the biggest plus point for the A9 will be its camera quality. The angle you will be able to capture is really large and with increasing the angle, quality is not compromised at all. The phone performs really well in low light and the flash manages to provide enough light to capture good.

· Looks beautiful
· Selfie portrait and Selfie panorama mode
· Amazing and glass coated back.
· Price is high as compare to the phones of same segment.
· Bixby (Voice assistant feature) needs to improve.
· Infinity Display is missing.
Overall the phone performs good, looks good but the only demerit the A9 having is the price. Yes the price is definitely high if we compare the A9 with other phone in the segment like One Plus and other phones. The reason for the high price is only brand value there is no extra feature which could define its price other than the Quad camera.
