P20 Pro vs Galaxy S8

Which one is best for you?

Samsung’s 2017 flagship smartphone continued to build on the success of the S6 and S7 with a superb edge-to-edge Super AMOLED screen, and plenty of power under the hood to ensure gaming and streaming are smooth and seamless.

Released a year later, the P20 Pro cemented Huawei’s position as the photography wizards of the Android world. The 40+20+8-megapixel triple lens Leica camera driven by adaptive AI takes sharp, professional looking photos you can be proud of. The S8 has an excellent 12-megapixel camera of its own with a handy pro mode.

The S8 also uses 4GB of RAM and a sizeable 3000 mAh battery to ensure a slick performance. But once again the Huawei outshines, with a 4000 mAh cell that will last all day, and 6GB of RAM driving its clever AI.

Both phones are excellent, but a year is a long time in tech, and Huawei have taken full advantage of that year to make a world-beating camera phone that trumps the S8 in most respects.
