    In one way it's a shame that the S9 is very much a boring iteration on the S8 - better speakers, better camera, slightly faster CPU and perhaps the most important thing..fixing the finger print scanner location.

    In another, its great news for me Firstly it shows that Samsung have listened to those that critcised the S8. Stereo speakers and relocation of the finger print scanner are two very welcome improvements! The fact its a rather boring incremental update is also nice as it means i'll be happy waiting a generation before buying a new phone...if they had gone with their earlier bezeless (and notch-less!) design i'd have been more temtped to splash the cash...

    Also gives their competitors time to come up with something better. I'm by no means wedded to Samsung phones but in my view they made the best phone of 2017 - anything could happen in the next 12 months.

    I wouldn't really say you can call an F1.5 aperture faster, granted by letting in more light you would be able to take a decent photo faster. But its giving the wrong impression of how apertures work.

    It's faster in common talk though... a lower aperture lens is nearly always referred to as being faster than a higher aperture lens

    A larger aperture (smaller f number) lets more light in, so in conventional photography you can use a faster shutter speed. Hence a lens with a large aperture is referred to as a fast lens. Nothing to do with processing speed!
