Mate 20 Pro vs Galaxy S8 Plus

Which one is best for you?

Both the Huawei and the Samsung models are singular designs, sporting dazzling displays and powerful processors. The Huawei Mate 20 Pro is a later release with a bigger battery, using machine learning to process tasks faster. Plus its selfie camera squeezes in 24 megapixels, while the Samsung’s dual camera has 8 megapixels. The S8+ is still a fabulous – and more affordable – phablet.

See more content on the magnificent AMOLED screen – he Galaxy S8+ was the first phone in the Galaxy range to feature Samsung’s immersive Infinity Display that spills over the phone’s sides, forming a continuous surface with no bumps or angles blocking your view. The Huawei Mate 20 Pro also boasts an incredible edge-to-edge screen – and you can securely and instantly unlock your phone if you tap the inbuilt fingerprint sensor.

Focus on what matters with the Samsung Galaxy 8+ by choosing the depth of field after taking the shot. Save time and effort when working on your video edits with the Huawei Mate 20 Pro. Its AI video editor can identify faces and create separate highlights for each person, so you can quickly share snaps with your loved ones.

Both models support image-based search which means that they can identify landmarks, do your food shop for you, and even translate foreign street signs and menus instantly. The Galaxy S8+’s smart assistant Bixby is constantly getting to know you – and gets better at giving you curated and customised information. The Mate 20 Pro uses machine learning to give you better results and speed up its processes so you can capture and access your photos and videos faster.

Both phones are expert task-processors, so your choice will depend on your budget – and which custom features are best for you.
