Mate 20 Pro vs Galaxy Note8
Which one is best for you?
Both the Huawei Mate 20 Pro and the year older Samsung Galaxy Note8 sport large screens but still fit easily in your hand. You can unlock them with your fingerprint, and juice them up quickly with fast battery charging. While the Mate 20 Pro boasts an incredible, AI-powered Leica triple camera, the Note8 comes with the signature S Pen – and with the help of a Samsung DeX Station, you can even turn it into a computer.
Take crisp and clear shots with the Galaxy Note8's dual camera. It supports 2x optical zoom to get you closer to your subject. And thanks to Optical Image Stabilisation, your photos will come out steady, even if your hand shakes the camera. Designed to adapt to different scenarios, the Huawei’s Leica triple lens snapper captures great details in everyday photos, and shines at group shots and high-rise buildings thanks to its ultra-wide-angle lens
Both models sport massive batteries, but the Mate 20 Pro’s cell can be refuelled by 70% within half an hour on SuperCharge. You won’t have to worry about cables or finding a plug socket, because your Galaxy Note8 charges wirelessly. With the Huawei, you can charge your friend’s phone with Wireless Reverse Charging – by placing your Mate 20 Pro against the other smartphone.
With the Samsung’s S Pen, you can jot down notes and draw on the Galaxy Note8’s big 6.3-inch Super AMOLED screen. Personalise your messages and create your own GIFs to entertain your family and friends. Maximise the fun of sharing with the Huawei Mate 20 Pro and project your presentations, gaming and video immediately to a larger screen with Wireless Projecting. In PC Mode, you’ll still be able to send messages and make phone calls independently.
Which model you choose will depend on whether you want Samsung’s statement stylus at a more affordable price point, or the Leica optics of the Mate 20 Pro, powered by AI technology.
