Work Performance : PCMark

We tested the Samsung Galaxy A9 Pro‘s performance using PCMark, which simulates work applications like web browing, playing video, writing text and editing photos.

Web Browsing 5132 5643 6788
Video Playback 4138 4487 3091
Writing 6286 5944 5918
Photo Editing 8388 5469 5357

Impressive! The Samsung Galaxy A9 Pro beat the Samsung Galaxy S6 (Amazon) in all aspects but Web Browsing. Its Photo Editing performance was particularly impressive. The Kirin 650-powered honor 5C (Amazon) did better in both Web Browsing and Video Playback, but like the Galaxy S6 was similarly poor in Photo Editing.

 

Battery Life – PCMark

We then tested the Samsung Galaxy A9 Pro‘s battery performance using PCMark. It basically ran the PCMark work tests until its battery capacity dropped to 20%.

The Samsung Galaxy A9 Pro lasted an astounding 13 hours on the PCMark stress test. That is a really remarkable result, as this stress test simulates the worst possible workload using work apps. In our real world experience, we had no problem using it for a full day with light loads, although its battery life dropped to about 10 hours while playing games.

 

Battery Recharging Performance

The Samsung Galaxy A9 Pro‘s remarkable battery life is thanks to its 5,000 mAh battery, which is about 50% larger than the battery capacity in most smartphones. But does it take much longer to recharge? Let’s find out!

Samsung Galaxy A9 Pro battery recharging

Thankfully, the Samsung Galaxy A9 Pro supports quick charging, and even comes with a 15W fast adaptive charger. Our tests showed that the Galaxy A9 Pro will recharge from 18% to 100% in just 134 minutes (2 hours and 15 minutes). This is very good performance, and backs Samsung’s claim that the Galaxy A9 Pro only needs 160 minutes to recharge from 0% to 100%.

    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.
