Which one is best for you?
Although the Samsung S8+ launched in the spring of 2017 - while the Mate 20 lite was released in late 2018 - these two smartphones more than hold their own against each other, with minor differences between their displays, battery size and performance.
Watch your self-portraits, group selfies and 4K video come alive on the big screen. The Galaxy has a 6.2-inch Infinity Display while the Mate 20 lite comes equipped with a slightly bigger 6.3-inch FHD+ FullView Display.
The Galaxy S8+ has an 8-megapixel camera, and its enhanced multi-frame image processing feature keeps all your selfies crisp and clear – so everyone in the shot will be in focus. The Mate 20 lite ups the selfie game further with a dual front camera. Its 24+2-megapixel lenses will capture you in your full radiance, and the realistic bokeh effect gives your selfies stunning creative flair.
Why not use your camera as a translator? Just take a photo of a foreign street sign or the menu at a posh restaurant in Paris – the Galaxy S8+ and the Mate 20 lite will translate it for you. And if you see a pair of fancy sneakers on the street, just snap a quick shot – both smartphones can look it up for you instantly on the internet.
Both models are fantastic smartphones, but if you want the best tech in a sleek and stylish shell, the Huawei Mate 20 lite is an excellent choice.
