It’s not every day that we get to collaborate with someone who’s not from the tech industry. Not known to many, model and businesswoman Georgina Wilson-Burnand has been a long-time Samsung Galaxy user — ever since the Galaxy S6 came out.
In this video, Georgina does her very first unboxing with Michael Josh and talks about how her life has changed so much the last few years. Now married and a new mom, the only thing that hasn’t changed is she’s still using a Samsung smartphone.
“It really has grown with me. When I switched to the S6, I was just using it for selfies but now, I already gave up my laptop because I just work on my phone. Anyone in my life can attest that I live on my phone.”
Not only does Georgina use her phone 24/7 for work, it’s also the only camera that she uses to catch those precious moments of her son Archie that she would otherwise not be able to with another camera.
“My son has completely grown up on the Galaxy. I want to do a digital album of the millions of photos that I have because his life, even before he was born, has just been captured on my phone.”
The timing could not have been more perfect because Samsung promises to have reimagined the camera on the S9 which is also Georgina’s favorite feature on the new phone.
“I was so happy already with the S8 and I keep wondering how Samsung is going to outdo themselves. But the S9 has.”
The marquee feature of the S9 is Dual Aperture, a first on a smartphone. Michael Josh stresses it’s an engineering feat for Samsung to pull it off.
For a non-photographer, it’s one of those features that Georgina just assumes to be there but now that she understands what it means, she realizes it’s the reason why her photos are much better on the S9, especially in low light.
“It’s really mimicking how brilliant the human eye is.” She says it needs to be the best camera because it’s what she brings with her everyday.
As someone who’s been working in fashion, Georgina also commends Samsung for releasing the S9 in Lilac Purple — a color all her favorite designers are also using this season.
Michael Josh challenges Georgina to a dunk challenge, where they try to capture the splash after dunking a cookie in a glass of milk using the S9’s super slow-mo feature.
Fascinated by the idea of making a cartoon version of herself, Georgina finds herself gravitating towards using its selfie camera to make her own AR Emoji. She gave her character a pair of spectacles and the medium-length hair she’s sporting in real-life.
In between takes, Georgina also tries the new selfie features on the S9. She loves being able to blur her background using Selfie Focus, and virtually appling makeup straight from the camera app.
This feature was produced in collaboration between GadgetMatch and Samsung.

The Galaxy Note 9 looks a lot like its predecessor, the Galaxy Note 8, but it has some pretty nifty upgrades. The S Pen is now equipped with Bluetooth and functions as a remote so you can use it for presentations, taking remote selfies, cycling through your photos in your gallery, and more!
The camera is the same as the one on the Samsung Galaxy S9+ but with some software improvements.
