Mate 20 Pro vs Galaxy S8

Which one is best for you?

Both the Huawei and Samsung models come equipped with superb AMOLED screens. And they’re both made of glass and aluminium with an IP68 rating that means they can survive the occasional dip. But the Huawei Mate 20 Pro is a much newer model with more megapixels and a triple camera with Leica optics so you’ll shoot like a pro.

Up your selfie game with the Galaxy S8’s Smart Auto Focus, and track faces so everyone in your group shot is in focus. What’s more, all your self-portraits will come out crisp and clear – thanks to enhanced multi-frame image processing, which takes multiple photos and selects the best. Or if you pick the Mate 20 Pro, you can fine-paint your photos with perfect balance using the upgraded AI-powered photography feature. It can tell the difference between objects and scenes in your photo, and automatically adjust colours, brightness and contrast to create the perfect image.

You can download files and switch between apps incredibly fast with both models. But the Mate 20 Pro uses smarter AI power management to fuel your daily work and entertainment needs.

Like the Galaxy S8, you can power up your Mate 20 Pro with fast battery charging. Plus, the Mate 20 Pro can share its power to charge another phone, thanks to Reverse Wireless Charging. Just flip your Mate 20 Pro over and place it against your friend’s smartphone if it’s compatible with Qi wireless charging.

If you want a fabulous phone with long battery life and a great camera that shoots sharp images even after dark, the Samsung S8 is a great choice – and it’s easier on your pocket. But if you are happy to dig a little deeper for an advanced AI-driven experience and Leica optics, choose the Huawei Mate 20 Pro.
