Today we are comparing the Samsung Galaxy S and the Samsung Galaxy S Plus. You can find the full review of the Galaxy S here and the review for the Galaxy S Plus here. Now let’s see which are the differences between the two siblings.

Dimensions and built:

Both phones are measuring 122.4 x 64.2 x 9.9mm and have a weight of 119 grams. They are slim and well build with a solid back cover made from plastic. So, here we don’t have any differences.

Display:

Again we have the same characteristics at the display too. Both of the phones have a 4 inches Super AMOLED display with a resolution of 480 x 800 pixels and a pixel density of 233 pixels. Both have multitouch support and are protected by Gorilla Glass.

Storage and memory:

The Galaxy S has an 8/16 GB internal storage. It has an amount of RAM and ROM memory of 512 Mb respectively 2 GB.

The Galaxy S Plus has an 8/16 GB internal storage. The amount of RAM and ROM memory are both 512 Mb.

We can see that the original Galaxy S has more ROM memory than the Galaxy S Plus.

Connectivity:

Galaxy S: 3G HSDPA speeds up to 7.2 Mbps, HSUPA up to 5.76 Mbps, Wi-Fi with b/g/n standards, DLNA, Wi-Fi Hotspot, Bluetooth v3.0 with A2DP, microUSB v2.0 slot.

Galaxy S Plus: 3G HSDPA speeds up to 14.4 Mbps and HSUPA up to 5.76, Wi-Fi with b/g/n, DLNA, Wi-Fi Hotspot, Bluetooth v3.0 with A2DP, microUSB v2.0 slot.

We can see that the Galaxy S Plus has double the download speed than the Galaxy S but as for the rest they have the same specs.

Camera:

The phones have the same 5MP camera and the same camera sensor. The camera has autofocus, geo-tagging, touch focus, face and smile detection. It can record 720p video at 30 fps and a secondary VGA camera is present on both phones.

So the image quality is the same on both phones and the features too.

Processing power:

The Galaxy S has a 1 GHz CPU and the PowerVR SGX540 GPU which are based on the Hummingbird chipset.

The Galaxy S Plus has a 1.4 GHz CPU and the Adreno 205 GPU, both based on the Snapdragon MSM8255T chipset from Qualcomm.

We can clearly see that the Galaxy S Plus has a faster and higher CPU performance than the Galaxy S but its GPU and chipset aren’t as good as the ones from the Galaxy S.

Battery:

The Galaxy S has a 1500 mAh battery which offers a standby time of 750 hours and a talk time of 13 hours and a half.

The Galaxy S Plus has a 1650 mAh battery which offers a standby time of 480 hours and a talk time of 17 hours and 20 minutes.

Here we can see that the higher CPU capacity of the Galaxy S Plus is eating more battery even if it has higher amperage than the battery from the Galaxy S.

In conclusion if you need the extra power of the Galaxy S Plus CPU than you can choose it. But if you need more battery life and you are playing games from time to time than you should choose the Galaxy S.
