Samsung Galaxy S9 (64GB) [Grade A]
The Samsung Galaxy 64 GB is available in Coral Blue, Midnight Black, and Lilac Purple ensuring more than enough colour options. Unlike the Galaxy S8, the S9 offers a higher screen-to-body ratio, giving it that almost seamless look. Weighing just 163g, it is amongst the lighter flagship phones by the company despite the bigger battery. However, what gives away the S9 is its fingerprint sensor on the back and the large dual aperture camera hump. Speaking of security, the Samsung Galaxy S9 64 GB offers iris unlock and face unlock features.
