The Galaxy A9 is an enormous, yet elegant smartphone. Looking across the board, it has no glaring weaknesses – its performance actually reflecting its price point rather well. You're not getting the best of the best here, but rather a very nice smartphone that won't disappoint in any area – it's just very good, not great. I think it's a fair deal, considering you won't be paying top dollar.

Samsung has put a lot of work into the new Galaxy A series and it's clear it wants to recreate the flagship success of the S and Note phones, except in a more attractive price bracket. The Samsung Galaxy A9 (2016) will be the face of the series - its size is an instant attention-grabber and its specs are better than the other A models. Sometimes the A9 has slightly better specs, other times the gap is significant. The clearest example is the chipset, it's essentially twice as fast as the S615 used in the A5 and A7 that we tested earlier. Here are our other impressions of the A9, summarized.

The Samsung Galaxy A9 can be found on Amazon priced at close to the $600 mark, which is quite steep, but given the flagship features this device provides, it does make sense. Available color options include silver, white, gold, and pink gold.
