Mate 20 lite vs Galaxy Note9

Which one is best for you?

Released shortly before the Huawei Mate 20 lite, the Samsung Galaxy Note9 sports a slightly larger screen, bigger camera and stereo speakers.

Whether you’re gaming, streaming or multitasking, the 10nm processor of the Galaxy Note9 delivers high performance, helping you get things done in a flash. And the Mate 20 lite’s processor gives a smooth, natural system response and excellent power efficiency. You can pretty much leave your battery packs and cords at home, as both smartphones should get you through your day on a single charge with their huge batteries.

Both models come with headphone jacks, but while the Mate 20 lite has a mono loudspeaker, the Galaxy Note9’s Dolby Atmos stereo speakers are tuned by AKG to surround you with sound when you’re streaming your favourite playlist. You’ll also hear the action crisper and louder when gaming or watching your favourite movies on the 6.4-inch Super AMOLED display.

The Huawei Mate 20 lite uses AI technology to process tasks and cut down on lag during your gaming sessions. And you can also preview your HDR images and video recordings in real-time. But you can level up your mobile gaming experience with the Galaxy Note9, too. Its water-carbon cooling system maintains high performance and prevents the overheating of its cutting-edge processor. Plus its AI-based performance adjuster makes sure that your games stay smooth, whatever’s happening in the real world.

The Huawei Mate 20 lite and the Galaxy Note9 have quite similar qualities when it comes to performance, AR features and design. But the Note9 comes with a Bluetooth-enabled S Pen that you can sketch and design with, to bring your ideas alive - and even control your camera and presentations with.
