Samsung handsets are quite robust when compared with other phones. However in S9 and S9 +, the corning covering is much thicker and tougher Gorilla Glass 5 as compared to the Gorilla glass used in the previous S8 phones of the series.

Better screen to body ratio

Well even S8 had a beautiful screen that covered most of the front with very small bezels. But in S9 and S9 plus the ratio of screen to body is even more improved as the top and bottom bezels are even less. The phone is shorter and wider than the predecessor S8 but the display is not effected by the shortness because of lesser bezels.

Better shape and position of side keys

Scratch resistance

There was scratch resistance in the previous S8 too but this time Samsung has used special alloy that fends off scratches in a better way than the S8 could have done so.  The S9 has a glossy outer covering. But as we all are well aware when there is more shine ans sparkle, there is a greater danger of scratches and loss of luster soon. Another good news for the fans is that a fresh Satin Gloss coat of paint, so that the finish fuses the colors of the frame and the body for one unified look. So you don’t need to be even a little worried about your phone having the worn out look anytime soon. This scratch resistance will take care of no scratching the phone in case of minor falls or friction.

Monolithic Black front

In the looks the S9 is much more impressive than S8 and S8+. When the phone is off, the front is completely dark and we cannot discern where there is display and where are the top and bottom bezels. This gives a very attractive look to the phone as the phone seems to have a continuous frontal visibility. Samsung achieves this by making the display darker. The darker display means that they blend with the front of the mobile to make it look like a complete screen. This one is one of the major Differences between Samsung Galaxy S8 annd S9.
