    The extra RAM will lead to an overall much more fluid user experience (just compare the Galaxy S8 to the Note 8). Battery life is also bind to be better on the +
    Reviewers have already said they noticed no difference between the S9 and S9+ hands on. The extra RAM is primarily for use of the telephoto lens. I have a Note8 and it seemed S-Pen functionality and the telephoto lens were the only uses for the extra RAM. There are Grace UI improvements that make it marginally snappier than the S8.

    The only reasons to go for the Plus are wanting the bigger screen while not caring about one-handed use, and/or if you really plan to use the telephoto lens extensively. And that's ok... there's no right or wrong decision.

    When I switched from the S5 to the S7, I thought it was too big but then I got used to it. I definitely plan on going to the S9+ this time around. I guess I'll get used to that eventually.

    S9+ is just the right size after all it's narrow

    Now that I have Note 8, the S8+ feels... small.

    I bought cases for various phones to see what they might feel like and S8 was tiny. I thought my BlackBerry DTEK 60 was almost perfect in size/wt previously.

    It is true that S9+ is a big phone that may fit all pockets but the large and great display has to be experienced in its full glory.Some compromise has to be made with regard to the uncomfortable bulge in the pant, er the pocket!

    Coming from the 4.7" iPhone 6, I think I should be pleased with the bigger 5.8"

    I am coming from only iPhone 6 and just placed a preorder for the Galaxy S9+. I chose the S9+ because it's still a narrow phone overall, so the larger screen seems like a necessity to enhance video watching experience.

    I am, however, concerned about the size and weight of the device. Does anyone ever find that the S8+ to be too big? The S9+ is actually going to be heavier than the S8+ too.
    Definitely size increased if you coming from iPhone 6. However, since it is much slimmer/narrow and easier in your hand, you might even feel "Is this 6.2 inch?" Your best bet is to visit mobile store and play with it since every hands are quite different.

    I looked at both yesterday, though the store had those damn security blocks on the back so I couldn't hold them properly. I was all in for the S9 but IDK, something about the S9+ felt pretty good. I don't care about the second lens, though I'll take the bigger battery and extra ram. Just not sure I need it lol. I need to go hold one without the security block on the back. Why do you put that on a dummy model anyway? There's nothing to steal! Its just an empty shell.

    I think it's a little too big. ..of course there must be a big phone with big specs, that's the trend these days, but it would be delightful seeing some galaxy S9 with top specs but around 5.5"

    I'm tired of big phones too, but will have to see both in person to make the final decision.

    Just played with both at the Samsung store and can definitely confirm that the S9+ is too unwieldy

    S9+ has dual camera, bigger battery and 2g more of ram.
    And in the UK 128gb storage. No contest for me. I have the S8. I had a Note 8 for a month. Sent it back for the S9+. I watch a lot of movies on the go and the bigger screen makes such a difference. It's not unwieldy, I have small lady hands but I can still hold it comfortably. Played with one in the Samsung store yesterday and it really wasn't that much bigger than my current S8. Staying home tomorrow to take delivery of my purple one. Cannot wait!

    I tried the S9+ in the store and did not have any problems using in one-handed (even with a big security dongle on the back).

    I pick my S9 up tomorrow too, on the UK release date. I'm hoping the rumours are true of a free gel case coming in the box. I tried an S9+ in store, that was in a good case, and it was massive. It seemed just about usable with one hand, naked, but Anyone that carries a glass phone around naked is either too rich, or likes to live dangerously
