Galaxy S9+ vs Galaxy S7

A tough competition

The Galaxy S7 has a struggle to match up to the Galaxy S9+, a large-format phone with a faster chip, 2GB more RAM, a seriously upgraded camera, bigger screen and more.

For starters, the Galaxy S9+ has a gorgeous 6.2-inch Infinity Display, which alone makes the S7 look dated. This takes up most of the front of the phone, curving gently into the sides, and offers a lot more space for watching videos than the S7’s 5.1-inch screen.

The Galaxy S9+ also has dual rear-facing cameras (compared to the S7’s single lens) – one set to 2x optical zoom and the other with ability to switch between two aperture sizes. It works much better in low light, can zoom in without loss of quality, and lets you create eye-catching depth of field effects – keeping part of the subject in sharp focus while blurring out the background.

The selfie camera has been updated to 8-megapixels (as opposed to 5 megapixels for the S7) and now has auto focus to ensure great results every time.

An easy decision

Other upgrades to the S9+ include stereo speakers, iris recognition, intelligent face recognition, the Bixby personal assistant and more. You can even create your own AR emojis by mapping your face onto a 3D avatar – so if you’re looking to upgrade from the Galaxy S7 to the Galaxy S9+, there’s plenty to look forward to.
