Samsung Galaxy: What are the differences between the S9 and S9+

The new Samsung Galaxy S9 and it’s bigger version, the Galaxy S9+ is about to start a new standard on modern smartphone performance. Better camera and an unbeatable performing AI-driven user experience.

If you think that the new Samsung Galaxy S9 and the Samsung Galaxy S9+ are identical to each other, you are not quite right. There are a number of features you will miss if you opted for the standard S9 than the bigger S9+. Here’s all of those features.

Feature Differences of the Samsung Galaxy S9 and the Samsung Galaxy S9+

  • Size is the most obvious difference. This is also a negotiable choice for some. If you are a person who prefer your smartphone perfect for one handed use, you’ll go for the smaller S9. It’s not practically tiny though but a lot handier than the monstrous S9+. For big-handed individuals, the S9+ is the one to go. Just remember that it will be a difficult job to fit into pockets, especially on skinny jeans.

    • Galaxy S9: Dimensions: 147.7 x 68.7 x 8.5 mm / Weight: 163 g

    • Galaxy S9+: Dimensions: 158.0 x 73.8 x 8.5 mm / Weight: 189 g

  • Rear Camera also gets a huge bump on the bigger Galaxy S9+. This is an easier choice because if you want the better one, you’ll go S9+ all the way. It’s got dual camera for wide angle and telephoto. This is the best a smartphone camera has ever come into form. The Galaxy S9 also have some of the same features from it’s bigger brother, but none of the hardware to rival the dual lens mechanism.
