  • Which Phone is better between Samsung Galaxy S9 Plus and Samsung Galaxy S9 and Samsung Galaxy Note 8?

    Answered By c56a5cc6922ce999 | 9 months ago
    S9 plus will be a better choice because it has best specification of them all. But if you can compromise with screen size you can go with Galaxy S9. Note 8 will be a better choice when you need a notepad. Seriously it seems useless when it comes to daily use. The position of the fingerprint sensor in the S9 and S9 plus is better than that of the Note 8. It's seems really hard when it comes to one hand operation because the note 8 has edgy corners but S9 and S9 plus has curvy corners which provides a pretty good grip and makes one hand operation much easier. Further will be your choice.
