Mother’s Day is on its way here! A day for us mothers to be celebrated for all the hard work we do 365 days of the year.  I think deep down nobody can understand the extent of the hard work we do for our loved ones.  This is a great time for us to recognize all that greatness we deserve as well.  So to set an example for the rest of the mothers out there… I wanted to treat myself to something in the tech field that would help me make my blogging easier and provide a convenient way to take top of the line pictures! 


I picked up a Samsung Galaxy S9+ at Costco because this update has some things that are truly game changing.  As a blogger I’m taking pictures all the time of my girls at different times day and night.  I need something that is tough, and can take amazing pictures.  Also, I love the lilac purple color of the phone! The Samsung Galaxy S9+’s camera has dual aperture lens which adapts like the human eye, capturing incredibly clear photos with vivid real-life colors.  It’s like having a pocket sized professional camera!  It’s great in all kinds of light, whether bright sunlight or lowlight .  The photos are all displayed on a beautiful edge to edge screen and is truly a sight.


Some other great features include the Intelligent Scan and the Live Translation.  A new way of unlocking your phone uses both the facial recognition and iris scan together so you can unlock simply in low light.  With Live Translation, this new future can ready languages and instantly translate in real time for you.  It’s a great fun instant translate feature by simply pointing the phone at anything!   

My favorite feature of the Samsung Galaxy S9+ is the new AR Emoji.  But scanning your face, it uses augmented reality to create an ‘emoji’ version of yourself!  When I’m sending messages to my husband or friends I throw in these emojis and it makes a simple text MUCH more interesting.  My girls get a kick out of it too seeing their mom in cartoon emoji form!  Does that AR Emoji look like me? 

Everything about the  Samsung Galaxy S9+ is a great improvement.  With a stronger screen and water proofing, you get something that is tough for me who is constantly using it to type emails/blog and take photos.  But the camera is really the special thing here with it’s dual aperture lens, live translation, intelligent scan, and AR emoji features takes this to another level.  Make sure to stop by your local Costco to pick one up!
