- Samsung Galaxy S9: Frequently asked questions
What’s the difference between the Samsung Galaxy S9 and S9+?
It’s not just the size of the display that’s different between the Galaxy S9 and S9+. There are a few other things to consider too.
The S9 features a 5.8-inch screen, while the S9+ has a 6.2-inch display. The S9+ is ever so slightly longer and wider too.
On the inside, the S9+ packs in more memory (6GB RAM compared to 4GB RAM on the S9), which might come in handy if you do lots of multitasking. And a bigger phone needs a bigger battery to power that larger screen, so the S9+ features a battery with larger capacity.
However, the main difference between the two (besides the size) is the number of cameras on the back of the phones. The S9 has a single lens, while the S9+ features two. The additional telephoto lens lets you use an optical zoom to capture far away subjects and enables you blur backgrounds for creative images.
Ultimately your choice will depend on if you like big or compact phones, and whether you want that additional lens for long range shots and creative portraits.
What is the difference between the Samsung Galaxy S9 and Samsung Galaxy Note9?
The Samsung Galaxy S9 and Note9 are both great phones – they’re similar in design and share many of the same brilliant features.
The most noticeable difference between the two phones is the screen size. The S9 features a 5.8-inch Infinity Display, while the Note9’s is much bigger at 6.4 inches. That said, if you like big phones you could always opt for the Galaxy S9+, which has a 6.2-inch Infinity Display.
Flip the phones over and you’ll notice the next dig difference – the cameras. The Galaxy S9 features a single lens on the back, while the Galaxy Note9 features two. The additional telephoto lens on the Note9 means you can use a 2x optical zoom to get closer to your subject without affecting image quality, and it’s great for images with blurred backgrounds. The Galaxy S9+ also features a telephoto lens on the back.
Choosing between an S9 and Note9 will likely depend on what you use your phone for. The Note9 features a Bluetooth-enabled S Pen, making it a great choice for business users and professionals that want to work on the move. It’s also a great choice for creative users that like to draw and design. The Note9 also features one of the most powerful batteries on any phone and the storage capacity to add huge amounts of data, both on the phone and via MicroSD.
The Galaxy S9 is better suited to everyday users that want a stylish phone for web browsing, social sharing and photo taking.
What is the difference between the Samsung Galaxy S9 and Samsung Galaxy S8?
The Samsung Galaxy S9 and S8 share similar designs, both sporting a cool curved body and 5.8-inch Infinity Display. However, the Galaxy S9 is also available in a super-sized version (the S9+), which features a 6.2-inch display and dual cameras.
While the Galaxy S8 and S9 share the same screen size, battery power and internal memory, the newer S9 is faster and more powerful. However, the main difference is in the camera. The Galaxy S9 features a Dual Aperture camera, which automatically adjusts to the levels of light in your shot – giving you detailed photos night and day.
What is the difference between the Samsung Galaxy S9 and A9?
The Samsung Galaxy A9 is newer than the S9. It has a 6.3-inch display compared to the S9’s 5.8-inch one, a longer-lasting battery, 6GB of RAM compared to the S9’s 4GB and 128GB of internal storage compared to the S9’s 64GB.
But the most noticeable difference is the number of lenses on the back of the phone. You’ll find four on the A9 – as well as a 24MP selfie camera on the front. The Galaxy A9 is a great choice for anyone who takes lots of varied photos and likes to get creative with their images.
The Galaxy S9 features a premium design, with a beautifully crafted curved body and Infinity Display. This is a seriously stylish phone – especially in the Sunrise Gold colour. The S9 also has a faster processor, higher screen resolution for really detailed images, and iris scanning security.
It’s a tough choice.
