Mate 20 lite vs Galaxy S8

Which one is best for you?

Both the Huawei Mate 20 lite and the Samsung Galaxy S8 come equipped with powerful processors and hefty batteries you can juice up quickly. But if you want to immerse yourself in stunning visuals, the Mate 20 lite gives you more screen with its 6.3-inch FHD+ FullView Display, compared to the 5.8-inch Infinity Display of the Galaxy S8.

Both smartphones have excellent cameras that perform brilliantly both day and night. While the Galaxy S8’s front and rear cameras are so fine-tuned that your photos will come out bright and clear – even when there's very little light – the Huawei Mate 20 lite makes your photos shine with its 20+2-megapixel rear dual-camera, adding creative flair to your images with optical bokeh.

Cut the need for cords when using the Samsung S8 with the powerful 3000 mAh battery that charges fast and wirelessly, while the Mate 20 lite’s 3750 mAh battery will keep you going even longer when you’re on the move.

You can draw a pattern or tap in your password or PIN number to unlock your Mate 20 lite, which comes complete with a fingerprint sensor. But the Galaxy S8 also offers face recognition and iris scanning for airtight security – letting you securely open your phone with a glance.

Both Android phones have amazing features, but the screen and battery size tilts the balance in the Mate 20 lite’s favour.
