Samsung SM-G965U overview

  • 1Description

See the light with the Samsung Galaxy S9+ SM-G965U 64GB Unlocked Smartphone). Samsung's Dual Aperture feature is the hallmark of the S9+, automatically switching based on lighting conditions. Built into the one of the 12MP rear cameras, Dual Aperture switches to F2.4 mode in daylight to take sharp and beautiful images and in low-light situations it goes to F1.5 mode to let more light in for brighter and clearer nighttime photos.

The S9+'s 6.2" Quad HD+ Super AMOLED Infinity Display goes edge-to-edge and curves over both sides so you have minimal visual distractions. The stunning 2960 x 1440 resolution combines with an epic 18.5:9 aspect ratio to give your videos a truly cinematic quality.

Running the Android 8.0 Oreo operating system, this phone is powered by a Qualcomm SDM845 2.8 GHz (2.65 GHz Quad + 1.7 GHz Quad) Octa-Core processor and 6GB of RAM. You can store your apps, AR emojis and Super Slow-mo clips on 64GB of built-in storage, which can be expanded via an (optional) microSD card up to 400GB in size.

This phone is unlocked and compatible with GSM/4G LTE networks. Connect to the internet and other devices with built-in 802.11 a/b/g/n/ac 2.4+5 GHz Wi-Fi and Bluetooth 5.0. The Galaxy S9+ also supports NFC technology for making phone-to-phone data transfers or mobile payments.

GSM + CDMA / 4G LTE Wireless Connectivity
This phone is designed to work on select GSM and CDMA networks and is 4G LTE capable. LTE is an advanced cellular network data protocol capable of data speeds so fast that they compete with wired broadband Internet providers. With an LTE connection, this phone should have no problem streaming HD video, downloading apps, uploading photos, or anything else that requires a high-speed data connection. The phone is also backwards compatible with 3G and 2G data for instances when you can't get LTE. In addition to cellular wireless, this phone also features Bluetooth, NFC and Wi-Fi connectivity.

Note: Not compatible with all cellular networks. Please make sure your provider uses a frequency or band that this phone supports and that they will allow you to used carrier unlocked phones. You can check which bands this phone works within the Specifications.
North American Variant / US Compatible LTE
The SM-G965U is a US variant of the S9+. The SM-G965U's LTE radio is tuned to frequencies that are most often used in the United States and North America. It can also be used in other parts of the world; however, LTE access may be limited or unsupported, depending on the network. To ensure this phone will work with your carrier please check to make sure the frequencies your carrier uses are supported by this phone. The full list of compatible carrier frequencies can be found here, the frequencies this phone supports can be found in the product specs.
Dual Aperture
Samsung's Dual Aperture feature works like the human eye. In the dark, our pupil's open up to let more light in to help us see better and constrict when there's more light. The rear lens of one of the S9+'s 12MP cameras can automatically shift between an F2.4 and F1.5 aperture based on lighting conditions. In low-light, it shifts to F1.5 to let more light in to give you brighter and clearer nighttime photos, with no fine-tuning required. You can also take control of the situation by manually switching between the two apertures as you see fit.
Super Slow-mo at 960 FPS
The slower you go, the more epic those amazing, once-in-a-lifetime or hysterical moments can be in your video. Thanks to an enhanced speed sensor, the S9+ is capable of slowing it down by shooting an incredibly fast 960 frames per second in HD resolution. If you take an especially awesome Super Slow-mo shot, you can relive them on the S9+'s lock screen.

Helping you make sure you get that perfect Super Slow-mo shot in one take is Samsung's Motion Detection feature. When on, a yellow square appears on the screen during a video and Super Slow-mo is activated for the entire video once motion is detected inside the square. That level of control means less frustration and time wasted and more slow-mo videos to share online.
App Pair
In a plethora of cool features, this one is near the top for increasing your productivity. App Pair takes advantage of the S9+'s ability to do two things at once with split-screen and window-over-window capabilities. You can setup your own App Pairs, which tie two apps together and store the icon on your homescreen or in the Edge panel. Now, with the tap of a single icon, you can launch both apps at once and work on them in side-by-side.
Get Animated
Personalize your conversations with animated emojis based on how you look. With the S9+, you can take selfies of different expressions and convert them into an animated version of yourself or who you want to be. Change up the hair, glasses and clothes so they can share your personal style. You get 18 animated stickers of yourself automatically that show a wide range of emotion when chatting.
Superior Sound
We love to watch videos and listen to music with our phones and now with the S9+, you can enjoy louder and crisper audio thanks to built-in stereo speakers specifically tuned by AKG. It's pure sound that's 1.4x more powerful than previous Galaxy phones.

The S9+ takes mobile entertainment to new heights with the inclusion of Dolby Atmos technology, which gives you multi-dimensional sound that puts you in the center of a theater-like experience.
Intelligent Scan Security
Our phones capture our lives, so keeping them secure and locked is extremely important, which is why Samsung gives you six different methods to secure them. In addition to the standard PIN, Password and Pattern methods of locking your phone, the S9+ offers biometric methods that are tied to you and you alone. For example, a built-in fingerprint scanner on the backside of the phone is conveniently located below the camera and is flush with the phone's back, giving you a quick and unique method of unlocking your phone.

The S9+ gets more high-tech with facial recognition and iris scanning. It's designed to identify you in bright sunlight, low light and even if when you're wearing sunglasses.
Advanced Contrast Enhancement
See your photos as they were meant to be seen. View your photos and videos vividly on the S9+'s display. The contrast is increased when you're outside, so even in broad daylight you can see stunning detail on-screen.

    Samsung SM-G965U reviews

    Galaxy S9+ SM-G965U 64GB Smartphone (Unlocked, Coral Blue) is rated 4.4 out of 5 by 79.
    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Upgraded from a S7 edge -Absolutely stunning! -SO much faster than a S7 Edge (Snapdragon 820) -S9 is priced lower than a S8 at its debut. (Only in the U.S) -Slightly smaller bezels than the Galaxy S8. -AR Emoji is tacked on to face Apples Animoji -Some features may get ported over to the Galaxy S8 once Oreo hits. -AKG tuned stereo speakers are a good step up in sound quality compared to all other Samsung flagships. Overall a great upgrade for people who have smartphones older than 2 years, but for some with a Galaxy S8 it will be recommended to wait for the S10 due to the s9 having a similar looking body with the phone mostly focused towards the new camera.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Fantastic experience! This is, by far, the most fantastic experience I ever had (this thing is a lot more than just a "device" - it's a mind blowing experience)! Fantastic display, fantastic battery life, fantastic camera, fantastic Samsung Experience 9.0 (I mean, really, this UI has absolutely everything I was looking for - the addition of a native screen-recorder would be totally awesome), fantastic Internet speed, fantastic super slow-motion recording, fantastic stereo-speakers! And for people complaining of "just 64GB of internal memory": why don't you buy a Memory Card up to 400GB and call it a day? I am super-thrilled with my new Samsung Galaxy S9+ experience!

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Bought my S9+ in Singapore I live in the U.S. but I was very fortunate to buy my S9+ in Singapore when it first came out on March 10, 2018. There are a couple of differences compared with the U.S. version. I got the 256gb version. U.S. is maxed at 64gb. Also it comes with a clear case protector(back only). Won't use it, but it nice that you have the option to use it. Why doesn't the U.S. have the 256gb version? This phone allows for 2 sim cards to be put in. With 256gb built in, you can use the 2nd slot for another sim card rather than extra storage. Love the Bixby translator. Was able to just take a picture of a document in Indonesian and got it translated into English.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from New Samsung User for Life I tell you what. All my tv's are Samsung, I have a washer that is Samsung, and I just switched from the Pixel XL 2 to the S9+ and couldn't be happier. The screen is so vibrant and I believe they thought of everything as far as customization. I also bought the wireless charger and it was well worth it. I hope this phone will carry me for a couple of years and they continue to release phones as good, if not better than this. The front speakers and awesome! Thank you for keeping the 3.5mm jack as that was the main reason for ditching the last phone. The camera and emoji feature is awesome. Keep up the work. I think you have a new phone customer for life!

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from fingerprint log on needs work My first Samsung phone and overall I love it. I've only had it for a short time, The camera features are awesome, and I'm sure that I will eventually get a chance to play with them and learn how to use them. I do find the button placements to be difficult. Bixby button really gets in the way, Maybe it will become easier with time. My biggest gripe is the fingerprint unlock. It was hyped as a big plus when I bought the phone. Too bad that it only works 10% of the time despite keeping the button very clean and even reloading my fingerprint thinking it might help. I waste more time trying to use it then going back to the pattern method to unlock. Hopefully this will be improved some day.

    Rated 2 out of 5 by from Galaxy S9 don't try to talk on the speaker I was so jazzed to get this phone. Then I tried to talk to my daughter on the speaker cross country. She couldn't hear me. Turns out there are a lot of people having the same problem. I wish they would fix it. Definitely in the phone. See the Samsung forum. When you spend this kind of money you expect a phone to work as a phone. I wish they would stop advertising this thing. Maybe another recall? I know Samsung probably doesn't want to deal with this with the past note problem but they would do well to maybe..discreetly fix the problem and give free exchanges.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Good phone, but it needs work This phone seems to be a great phone from Samsung, but it needs to be worked on. I feel like Samsung should offer better camera technology like phase detection autofocus, laser autofocus (I already know they older DUAL pixel cameras). Also, I was hoping for this phone to record longer 4K 6FPS video instead of just 5 minutes and they also need to add 4K HDR Support for the Galaxy note9. I'll get the note9 if it's faster and if it has a better camera. Also, these phones need to be stronger and more durable, nothing happened to my Note8 and it got scratches on it. Over all, this is a great device.

    Rated 2 out of 5 by from TOO MANY BUGS!! Dear Samsung, I have been a loyal customer. Many Samsung phones, a couple laptops, I've always been a fan. But I just cannot support this recent S9+. There are so many bugs with the connectivity, email app not connecting, latency, SD card read/write errors, no visual voicemail, etc that I cannot support nor recommend this phone to anyone. On the bright side the battery life is excellent compared to my S7. I truly hope you release a software patch that will resolve the many, many issues that I'm encountering. I love the design of the phone, the feel of it. But that doesn't make up for the lack of functionality! I seriously cannot even use WiFi in my home because it keeps disconnecting and reconnecting- a problem my S7 active NEVER had with the same configuration. PLEASE get it together. Please.
