The Galaxy S9+ is not only plus-sized, but also plus-featured, packing a couple of extra gigs of RAM and an additional rear-facing camera compared to the 5.8-inch S9. The refined 6.2-incher is hardly reimagined from the ground up, although several big photography upgrades and some common sense help it easily stand out from the S8+.

Like its little brother, the S9 Plus supports both Super-slow motion video recording at 960fps in 720p and a one-of-a-kind Dual Aperture mode for automatic light adjustment in extra-dark and unusually bright environments.

The secondary shooter on the 6.2-incher’s beautiful glass back is in charge of portrait photography, but obviously, we can’t say how that particular feature stacks up against Apple’s iPhone X and 8 Plus portrait-taking skills.

What’s crystal clear even after spending very little time with Samsung’s latest jumbo-sized flagship at MWC 2018 is that you shouldn’t let appearances deceive you. There’s plenty tucked inside the Galaxy S9+ to possibly make this the best smartphone money can buy, leaving the S8 and S8+ in the dust.

You get 6GB RAM, improved Snapdragon 845 or Exynos 9810 processing power, enhanced biometric security and convenience, raucous stereo speakers, and an AR Emoji implementation that looks a lot more fun than Apple’s Animoji function. This is truly the “next big thing”, at least at a first glance.
