Galaxy S9+ vs Galaxy S7 Edge

Zooming ahead

The Samsung Galaxy S7 Edge was a huge hit when it was launched in 2016, but how does it compare to the 2018 model, the Galaxy S9+?

The Galaxy S9+ is only a little taller than the S7 Edge and slightly narrower, but its screen is 6.2 inches’ corner to corner, compared to 5.5 inches for the older model. Add in its HDR capability and stereo speakers, and the Galaxy S9+ is a clear winner for watching videos and movies.

The Galaxy S9+ sees some big upgrades to both front and rear-facing cameras. Its rear-facing camera now has twin lenses, one with dual aperture so it can take better pictures in low light, and the other with 2x optical zoom – so you get closer to your subject without loss of quality. And for selfie fans, it has an 8-megapixel front-facing camera (up from 5 megapixels for the S7 Edge), with added autofocus to ensure great results every time.

Unlocking the extras

Other upgrades and new features on the S9+ include the Exynos 9810 processor (faster and more efficient than the Exynos 8890 featured in the S7 Edge) – coupled with an extra 2GB RAM, this will give a smoother performance and better battery life. The S9+ has iris and face recognition too – giving you more options for securely unlocking your phone – though some may still prefer the ease of the fingerprint sensor set into the physical home button of the S7 Edge.

In summary, if you’re looking to upgrade, the Galaxy S9+ has plenty to get excited about. And if you’re looking to choose between the two? The S7 Edge is still a great phone, but the Galaxy S9+ is a step into the future.
