For unlocking the phone it has highly accurate fingerprint sensor. 

Galaxy A9 is first Smartphone in “A” series having 6.0 inches display, Samsung retained the screen resolution to 1080p (Full HD). Sony has releases its flagship phone Xperia Z5 Premium with 800 dpi but here Samsung has this phone only with 367 ppi display density. This fact is also true that it has improved AMOLED display which is vibrant and crystal clear. The user experience for watching videos in phone is quite pleasurable. For the protection there is a layer of Corning Gorilla Glass 4.
Camera is downgraded from the Galaxy S6 16 MP to 13 Mp in A9, but when it comes to picture quality it is surprisingly well. It has a great camera1/3" sensor size. Photos from 13 MP rear camera comes vivid and pleasant in colour, AMOLED display making pictures more brighter and living. Camera loses a bit details in low light area but it is quite acceptable, phone focus quickly and preloaded OIS did good job for stabilisation, 8 MP front camera covers a lot of area having wide viewing angles.
In the market there are lots of Smartphone having better power processor in lower price than Galaxy A9. Although the Galaxy A9 is powered with Qualcomm MSM8976 Snapdragon 652 Quad-core processor which is efficient & doesn’t linger in switching one app to other. The best thing about the phone is you can play games for longer time without facing heating issue although phone warms up in heavy gaming.
In the department of power it is loaded with 4000 mAh battery, by activating power saving mode feature it can give battery backup of nearly 2 days. So for the people who stay away from power source it can be a great option.
