P20 lite vs Galaxy S7

Which one is best for you?

Samsung’s 2016 flagship Galaxy S7 has been superseded by the S8 and S9, but it remains a superb phone. Technology has moved on quickly, and mid-range phones like the Huawei P20 lite offer many of the features you would have seen on a premium phone just a couple of years ago, so you can upgrade without breaking the bank.

The S7’s 5.1-inch Super AMOLED display outshines the P20 lite’s 5.8-inch Full HD+ screen, but the Huawei still impresses with an edge-to-edge display featuring a notch for the selfie camera. And while the S7 boasts an excellent 12-megapixel camera which excels in low light, the P20 lite sports an outstanding 16+2-megapixel dual snapper that delivers incredible results.

Both phones will last a full day on a charge of their 3000 mAh batteries, and when you’re out of juice, both make use of fast charging to get back to full charge in a jiffy. With 4GB of RAM and powerful octa-core processors, both phones will let you stream movies or play the latest games without a hiccup, and both make use of fingerprint scanners to ensure security.

The P20 lite represents a like-for-like upgrade on the S7, at a much lower price than Samsung’s older flagship, showing just how far phone tech has advanced in just a couple of years.
