Poll results: a good amount love the compact S9, but the bigger S9+ slams it
Samsung's newest flagship duo is ready for pre-order and they are gorgeous. There are also a few differences between the two phones — the S9+ has a bigger, 6.2-inch screen vs a 5.8 inches on the S9, it has the secondary telephoto camera with Live Focus mode (Portrait Mode), a bigger battery to fill up that room... and a bigger price.

The Galaxy S9, on the other hand, is a conveniently compact handset with its narrow form and is slightly cheaper at $720. Unfortunately, you miss out on a secondary camera here, but you still get the variable aperture and awesome performance of the main shooter.

So, we thought we'd ask — which of these phones would you go for if you were to buy one? The S9 for being compact or just for being cheaper, or the S9+ for its phablet size screen or telephoto camera? A good amount of people voted for the compactness of the S9... 25% to be exact. A mere 5% want it for the cheaper price. And then we have the rest voting for the Galaxy S9+ because it's bigger or because of that telephoto lens. We guess manufacturers are still right when they insist on making large phones.

Which one would you buy and why?

Galaxy S9 - because I want a more compact phone
24.58%
Galaxy S9 - because it's cheaper
5.7%
Galaxy S9+ - I want the bigger screen
36.92%
Galaxy S9+ - I want the secondary camera
32.8%
