Mate 20 lite vs Galaxy S7 edge

Which one is best for you?

Back in 2016 when the Samsung Galaxy S7 edge was released, it was one of the best smartphones of its time. But two and a half years later, we now have the Huawei Mate 20 lite on the scene, with a much bigger screen, a more powerful battery and an AI-powered processor.

With the Galaxy S7 edge, you’ll get a 5.5-inch Super AMOLED display to see your party photos come alive in vivid colours. And if you choose the Mate 20 lite, the edge-to-edge 6.3-inch FullView Display will give you even more screen to watch the latest video of your favourite band or YouTuber.

Some of our most precious memories happen when the lights start to fade, so let the Galaxy S7 edge’s 12-megapixel rear camera give you crisp images and true-to-life colours, even when you’re taking photos in backlit environments. And shoot studio-quality self-portraits with the 24+2-megapixel front camera of the Mate 20 lite, which uses automatic AI-powered beautification to make your selfies stand out.

Both models come equipped with hefty batteries that charge fast thanks to Quick Charge, and you can also power up your phone wirelessly – without being tied down. The Galaxy S7 edge, with its 3600 mAh battery, is almost as powerful and long-lasting as the Mate 20 lite with a battery size of 3750 mAh – keeping you on the move for longer and acting as your trusty companion all day.

The Galaxy S7 edge is an excellent and powerful phone, but if you want much more recent tech and a bigger screen, it’s worth upgrading to the Mate 20 lite.
