P smart vs Galaxy S9

Which one is best for you?

While 2018’s Galaxy S9 was widely seen as an incremental improvement on the previous year’s popular S8, Samsung consolidated its success with a superb phone that showcases Samsung’s ground-breaking innovations to the full. Huawei’s Mid-range P smart may not be a flagship phone like the S9, but it boasts an impressive feature set for such a moderately priced device.

With the S9, Samsung perfected an overhaul of the security access to the phone, with a combination of iris, face and fingerprint scanners to ensure that only you can access your device – and that you can do it quickly and easily. Protected by Gorilla Glass 5, the S9 sports a vibrant and realistic screen and has a bag load of power under the hood to run games and stream movies without interruption. Its camera is excellent too – only a single lens affair, compared to the P smart’s dual lens snapper. But it’s backed by clever AI, and has a low aperture mode which gives great results in low light.

The P smart has its own bag of tricks to shout about, not least the “dewdrop” notch that Huawei incorporated into the screen of its 2019 version, and the hefty 3400mAh battery which should keep your apps running all day on a single charge.
