Mobile sets two Guinness World Records to celebrate Galaxy S9 launch

Mobile sets two Guinness World Records to celebrate Galaxy S9 launch

Apple added a 3D sensing camera to the iPhone X previous year, as the Face ID facial recognition system took the place of Touch ID.

Both smartphones support fast charging over wired and wireless connections.

Unfortunately, unless you're an Apple customer, getting an in-person fix for your damaged device without voiding your warranty can be a hard task.

The partnership won't cover every Galaxy phone ever made, but it does hit most Samsung flagship phones from the past four years: every Galaxy S flagship since the Galaxy S6, the Galaxy Note 5, and the Galaxy Note 8 are listed as eligible for same-day service from uBreakiFix off the bat. The company also claims that all repairs will be conducted by following Samsung certified processes repaired and the devices will be fixed on the spot. You'll get 64GB inside the S9, and you can choose between 64GB and 256GB models for the iPhone X. Those who weren't enrolled there were typically asked to call a Samsung representative for support and either ship their busted phone to a company facility or find their own fix service. Customers are required to come to one of the 300 authorized service locations to get support within two hours or less.

Samsung also has a couple of exclusive perks of its own: Gear VR and DeX Station support. And the new DeX dock for the Galaxy S9 actually lays the phone flat, letting you use the screen as a touchpad or keyboard as needed. Long story short, you need a case or you're nearly certainly going to smash your hot new Samsung phone. That should make it a lot more worthwhile than the so-so original released with the S8.

The software package weighs around 250MB, it is labeled as version "G960FXXU1ARC5" and "G965FXXU1ARC5" for the Samsung Galaxy S9 and Galaxy S9 Plus respectively, and it's being distributed, as usual, over-the-air. Overall, we see more practical and beneficial advantages with the Galaxy S9 here.
