Samsung Galaxy A9 Pro Singapore
Samsung has gone through hell and back this year. Their Galaxy Note 7 phones were bursting and causing havoc and the issue escalated so quickly that even airports put warning messages out that passengers carrying the Note had to hand over their phones before flying.
In all this brouhaha, a very powerful device went under the radar. The Samsung A9 Pro.
Released Mid-2016. This is a behemoth of a phone. It comes in the phablet category because it packs a 6 inch screen which runs on the Marshmallow. This huge screen will suck a lot of power and this is countered by the 5000 mAh battery.
It has an Internal memory of 32 GB and runs on the standard 4GB RAM.
The front camera is a bit disappointing at just 8MP. For this price point, you would hope the front would be as good as the back camera.
Made of glass and metal, the Samsung A9 Pro Singapore is a phone that nobody is talking about, but it is packed with a lot of features which are premium.
