Display

The Galaxy S9 features the larger display of the two phones, at 5.8 inches, versus the 5.5-inch screen size of the iPhone 8 Plus. Apple sticks to the familiar sizable bezels above and below the display area on the iPhone 8 Plus, while Samsung has mostly eliminated the bezel above and below the display of the Galaxy S9 – creating a nearly "edge-to-edge" display design.

For the technology used in the display, the Galaxy S9 has a Super AMOLED display with 2,960 x 1,440 resolution and includes curved glass that tapers over the left and right sides of the phone. Apple sticks with the 1,920 x 1,080 resolution of prior iPhone Plus models on the 8 Plus display. While the display is lower resolution and does not use OLED, Apple's colorful and bright Retina technology goes a long way toward compensating.

Still, based on our tryout of the new Galaxy S models, images and videos do appear more vivid on the S9 display than on the iPhone 8 line.
