3 ways the Samsung Galaxy S9 is going to fix what we disliked about the Galaxy S8


New Samsung Galaxy S9 rumors point to a refined smartphone that’s out to right the few, but noticeable, wrongs of the Samsung Galaxy S8, our current best phone title holder.

It won’t have big, flashy changes when it launches on February 25, according to every credible leak we’ve seen. However, it will fix three obvious problems that dogged the otherwise stellar 5.8-inch Android phone. The 6.2-inch Galaxy S9 Plus is said to be going through similar revisions.

Samsung doesn’t need to make drastic changes to its flagship smartphone in 2018. But you can look forward to the following trio of improved Galaxy S9 features that are poised to make the best phone even better at MWC 2018.

We hated having to blindly find that offset rear fingerprint sensor

1. Galaxy S9 to fix Samsung’s maligned fingerprint sensor

What was wrong with the Galaxy S8: The fingerprint sensor on back of the Galaxy S8, S8 Plus and Note 8 was awkwardly offset from the center, and right next to the camera. It led to a lot of camera smudges. We hated it.

The Galaxy S9 fix: Samsung will move the fingerprint sensor to a better location below the camera, according to renders and Samsung Galaxy S9 case leaks, and that’s good news.
