P smart vs Galaxy Note8

Which one is best for you?

The Galaxy Note8 was Samsung’s flagship phablet in 2017 – a beautiful big beast with a fantastic feature set. And although it’s more powerful – and pricier – than the mid-range Huawei P smart, a year is a long time in technology, and Huawei have made full use of the intervening period to bolster their reputation as challengers for the Android crown.

Samsung pushed the boat out with the Note8, with the stunning curved edge Infinity Display filling 83% of its large face – perfect for streaming films and gaming. The versatile S Pen stylus allows you to scribble notes, sketch, and sign documents, and slots neatly into the body of the phone. The Note8 has a cracking camera too – a dual lens 12+12-megapixel array that takes superb photos and records 4K video. The P smart maintains Huawei’s reputation for photographic excellence with a quality 16+2-megapixel rear camera and a 16-megapixel selfie snapper.

The Note8 is a superb phone that outperforms the P smart on almost every level, but the Huawei is a significantly cheaper phone, with an impressive feature set for the price.
