Samsung Galaxy A9 Pro (SM-A910F) Phablet Review

Page 3 : Samsung Galaxy A9 Pro - Initial Setup, Memory & Storage, Battery

Initial Setup

When you power up the Samsung Galaxy A9 Pro for the first time, it will take only about 25 seconds to boot up. If you set it up as a fresh device, it should take no more than 5 minutes to complete the initial setup. Check out our video on the initial setup process.

 

Available Memory & Storage

The Samsung Galaxy A9 Pro comes with 4 GB of LPDDR4 memory. This is big advantage since most smartphones in this price segment come with 2 GB or 3 GB of memory. There is a fair bit of bloat, so you have about 1.9 GB of free memory to use. Compare that to the ASUS ZenFone Zoom (Amazon), which also has 4 GB of RAM but 2.2 GB of free memory to use. That’s a difference of 300 MB.

The Samsung Galaxy A9 Pro also comes with 32 GB of internal flash memory. Once you deduct 8.5 GB for the Android 6.0 operating system and apps, you have 23.5 GB of free space to use. This is pretty decent, allowing you to store about 4,000 photos, or record 180 minutes of 1080p video.

Don’t worry about running out of storage space with the Galaxy A9 Pro though. It has a dedicated microSD slot that supports microSD cards of up to 256 GB in capacity.

 

Big Battery

One of the biggest features (literally) of the Samsung Galaxy A9 Pro is its massive 5,000 mAh battery. That’s the capacity of a power bank packed into a 7.9 mm slim form factor! You should have no problem chasing after Pokemons for a whole day, but to be sure, we will stress-test its battery later in this review.

The Galaxy A9 Pro‘s battery also supports fast charging. Samsung claims it will recharge from 0% to 100% in just 160 minutes (2 hours 40 minutes). We will put that to the test later in the review.

    Hope the Samsung Galaxy A9pro SM-A910F coming over to Samsung London UK stores. Joe Public now as a option, instead of going for the expensive Note 7. A9pro has decent quality specks for a medium range smartphone the price should be competitive. Bring it on Samsung please.
