David Pierce: ‘Samsung Galaxy S9 Is Impressive and Infuriating’

David Pierce, reviewing the Galaxy S9 for The Wall Street Journal:

Samsung paired this lovely hardware with half-baked software. I love Android and use it every day, but I don’t like any of what Samsung does to it. If Samsung would just get out of its own way, build hardware and let Google handle the software, the S9 might be the best phone on the market. Instead, I found myself longing for simpler, smoother features to better suit this good-looking phone.
