Galaxy S10 Plus vs Galaxy S9

Which one is best for you?

The Galaxy S9 was released with much fanfare in 2018. Building on the success of the S8 the previous year, the sleek and powerful flagship cemented Samsung’s status as a manufacturer of some of the world’s finest smartphones. Just a year later, they have revolutionised the Galaxy range with a trio of world-beating phones, and the S10+ is the biggest and best of them.

The S9 sported a sumptuous 5.8-inch Super AMOLED screen which is dwarfed by the S10+’s amazing high definition Infinity-O display, which makes the most of the phone’s face by hiding the front camera behind a tiny pinhole notch. The S9’s 12-megapixel camera is backed by potent AI to achieve outstanding results in low light. And the front camera takes fun panoramic selfies so you can get the whole crew in shot. But Samsung have upped the ante with the S10+’s brilliant 16+12+12-megapixel ultra-wide angle snapper – their most advanced and impressive camera yet.

Both phones are protected by Gorilla Glass, and have an IP68 waterproof rating, but the S10+ is a much more powerful phone, with a bigger battery, more memory, and more storage – up to a terabyte and a half when using the MicroSD slot.
