The Samsung Galaxy S9+ has a 6.2-inch Quad HD+ (2960 × 1440 pixels) 529ppi Super AMOLED Infinity end-to-end, bezel-less screen that extends to the phone’s sides, similar to the S8+. Samsung says that the display is 15% brighter than the S8+ under sunlight. It also has a Corning Gorilla Glass 5 protection.

First Impressions

You’ve probably heard this already, but the Galaxy S9+ looks and feels very familiar. If you compare the phone to last year’s model, there’s really not that much that has changed. But for me, that’s perfectly fine since Samsung did change the main thing that I complained about on last year’s model – the placement of the fingerprint sensor. On the new phone, you won’t have to stretch your hand and risk smudging the camera lens every time you want to unlock the phone. The fingerprint sensor has been relocated to below the camera, exactly where it should be.

I haven’t spent too much time on the phone so far, but I am fairly impressed. The camera seems to perform better, the performance is flawless and having 6GB of RAM allows me to jump in and out of the 6-8 apps I use on a daily basis without waiting for them to reload. Also, I’m pretty pleased with battery life so far. It’s much better than what I got with last years S8 and might be better than what I got with the Note 8 as well.

I’m planning a full review of the Galaxy S9+ on my Simmyideas Tech Hub channel on YouTube. Please subscribe if you want to see the video as soon as it’s online. If you have any questions about the phone, please leave them in the comments below or on the video page on YouTube. I’ll do my best to aswer them all as best I can.
