Spring is finally here and I couldn’t be more excited! With Summer just around the corner, that means more time with mi familia and lots of opportunities to capture memories! We have so many fun excursions planned and I can’t wait to capture them all for my scrapbook!
Samsung Galaxy S9+
We have been talking about taking a trip down to Mexico so my boys can experience more of their Latino heritage. I was lucky enough to take a trip to Guadalajara when I was 21 and it was a trip I’ll never forget. I learned so much about my roots and the Latino culture. I was taken back by the beautiful architecture and agriculture. I’ll never forget the miles and miles of Mango trees, such a beautiful sight. The road trip was filled with first experiences; I traveled through tropical weather and drank fresh coconut milk directly from the fruit for the first time. Not to mention the amazing tacos! In the last 20+ years, I have never been able to find tacos as good as the ones I enjoyed in Guadalajara. I sure wish I had the Samsung Galaxy S9+ back then, but I’m so glad we’ll be able to capture those moments now in full clarity!
As I anticipate our upcoming excursions, my days after work are filled with normal Mom activities like my son’s swim meets, home improvements and growing my business/blog. And let me tell, you the new Samsung Galaxy S9+ couldn’t arrive at a better time! When I saw all the new enhancements Samsung has made to the camera when I was at Target, I knew I needed to upgrade ASAP to take full advantage of the spring and summer events, not to mention my plans for my blog. I’m excited to share my favorite features, so let’s get started!
Photography is a huge part of building my brand and blog. And the Dual Aperture Lens on the Samsung Galaxy S9+ is AMAZING! I’m a long time Samsung Galaxy user, so I’m no stranger to the amazing screen resolution and vibrant colors Samsung is known for, but this Dual Aperture Lens is definitely a game changer for me and I can’t wait to explore all of the PRO settings!
I’m just scratching the surface and still learning the new features, but I already know that the PRO settings are going to come in handy for my party posts.
The Live Focus feature is already my favorite so far, I love how you can focus on an object and adjust the background blur with just a touch of the finger.
I also love how you can revert to a close-up or wide-angle version of the same photo while in the gallery! You can even make more adjustments to the blur.
New Video Features
Another favorite new feature is the SUPER SLOW-MO video capabilities. Samsung even makes editing a breeze with a music library for you to bring your video to life! I tried this feature out at my son’s most recent swim meet and made him a little video in a matter of seconds!
I also love the HYPERLAPSE feature, so fun! This will definitely come in handy when we need to film our 3D printing projects for upcoming posts.
Of course we can’t forget to mention the gorgeous and sleek design. I selected the Coral Blue, it’s just so pretty and photos really don’t do it justice. It’s also available in Black, Lilac Purple and Titanium Gray. Isn’t it such a pretty color? I love that it’s the perfect gender neutral hue, perfect for when one of my boys needs to upgrade down the road. Not only is the Infinity Screen with edge to edge display so clear, you can easily share your screen with other Samsung screens. Another plus since we are a Samsung family; all we have to do is sync our photos and videos with our Samsung account and we’re good to go!
The Samsung Galaxy S9+ is packed with technological enhancements and like I said, I’ve just scratched the surface of it’s capabilities. I can’t wait to try the Live Translation feature. Even though I’m Latina and have been around the Spanish language all of my life, admittedly my Spanish language skills have gone rusty. But now with my middle son taking Spanish in high school, I can brush up on my Spanish skills again. So this feature is sure to come in handy when helping him with his homework. I sure wish I had this technology back when I was growing up and attending Spanish speaking Sunday School!
There is also a fun AR Emoji feature that I’m looking forward to playing with soon. I mean, who wouldn’t want an Emoji that looks JUST like you?
As I pack for an upcoming blog conference this week, my Samsung Galaxy S9+ is top on my packing list. Of course, I never leave home without my phone, but this time I’m super excited about not having to lug my DSLR with me on this trip. I’m trying to pack light this time around with just a carry on, and my new phone will make it that much easier!
I hope you find this look into the new enhancements of the Samsung Galaxy S9+ helpful and consider it for your next upgrade during your next visit to Target! The crew at Target Tech are amazing and can help set you up with the Samsung Galaxy S9+ with any carrier!
