samsung 9 vs samsung 9 plus which one is better to buy

The much-awaited Samsung Galaxy S9 and S9 plus are finally here. With many exciting new features, Samsung has released its masterpieces for the year. People are already making pre-orders through online shopping Pakistan. But with great innovations comes the difficulty of choosing the right option.  So what is actually the right option? Or in other words, which one to buy between Samsung Galaxy S9 and S9 plus?

Although, both of them are similar yet there is still space for a comparison. So here is a detailed breakdown of both the phones.

Design and Display:

It won’t be wrong to call Samsung Galaxy S9 and S9 plus twins and that also identical. But more disappointingly, both the phones are similar to the last year’s Samsung Galaxy S8. Let’s just take it this way, you don’t fix something which is not broken. Same is the case with the design of Samsung Galaxy 8. The edge to edge display and the sleek bezel body is already perfect. In the new Samsung Galaxy S9 and S9 plus, it is even slimmer than before.  Except that illogically placed fingerprint sensor has been shifted to a much logical position. Here are the display specifications for both the phones.

Though both the phones have an almost similar design, Samsung S9 plus body is a little larger.
  • Galaxy S9 – 147.7 x 68.7 x 8.5 mm (5.81 x 2.70 x 0.33-inch), 163g (5.75 oz)
  • Galaxy S9 Plus – 158.1 x 73.8 x 8.5 mm (6.22 x 2.91 x 0.33-inch), 189g (6.67 oz)

But bigger does not always mean better since the Galaxy S9 crams more pixels into the same space, it’s likely better for VR games. This can also become the reason for the rise of Samsung galaxy s9 plus price in Pakistan

The colors available for both the phones are Midnight Black, Coral Blue and Lilac Purple with Titanium Gray.

Camera:

Camera perhaps is the only feature in which Samsung Galaxy S9 and S9 plus differ. Both the phones have a 12-megapixel camera but there is a major difference. Galaxy S9 Plus has a dual rear camera and Galaxy S9 does not.

Samsung has made camera its strong point this year to boost the sales. It is mainly the first ever company to introduce dual aperture camera for a mass market phone. Moreover, the dual aperture camera benefits both, low and bright lighting. The 2x telephoto lens for zooming your subject is another perk as well.

Memory:

Another clear difference between these twins is the memory space. Samsung Galaxy S9 has 4 GB OF RAM while S9 plus has 6 GB RAM. But in a way, it won’t give an edge to S9 plus over Galaxy S9 as 4 GB is already enough for most of the users.

Battery Life: 

Well, it may seem a very small thing but battery life can make all the difference. Samsung Galaxy S9 plus wins here as well. The Galaxy S9 Plus has the biggest battery by far — a 3,500mAh pack, compared to the 3,000mAh pack in the regular model.

Pricing:

As Samsung Galaxy S9 plus has a little more capability to perform better, there will surely be a difference in the price. Samsung Galaxy s9 price in Pakistan will slightly be lower than Galaxy S9 plus.
