Wonderful post to ask there! For me, Galaxy S9 Plus has the bigger battery by far -- a 3,500mAh pack, compared to the 3,000mAh pack in the regular model. But, te Galaxy S9 has 4GB of RAM, and the Galaxy S9 Plus has 6GB. In terms of camera, the Galaxy S9 Plus has two cameras on the back, and the regular Galaxy S9 doesn't.

There's a big advantage with the Galaxy S9 Plus especially with its feature against regular Galaxy S9. It only differs in pricing because for the Galaxy S9 Plus, at least add an extra $100 to the usual prices, though it depends on where you buy it.
