Under the Hood Comparison: Galaxy S9+ vs. its competition

Samsung unveiled the S9+ to the world by taking the stage at Mobile World Congress in Barcelona. The Galaxy kindest focuses on its picture-taking capabilities because the S9+ is Samsung’s first flagship smartphone that comes with dual cameras. This brings the S9+ to compete with phones like the Pixel 2 XL as well as its sibling Galaxy Note 8.

While there are some software tricks included in the S9+ for consumers, we need to take a look at all the specs for the S9+ and how it stacks up against its competition. For that, we’ve put together a nice table for you to look at. This is where we compare the Galaxy S9+ to its competitors, including the iPhone. On a different note, we will be releasing an in-depth review of the S9 next month, so be on the look out for that.
