Which one is best for you?
2017 was the year in which Samsung incorporated its amazing curved screen technology into its flagship models, with the Galaxy S8 sporting a superb 5.8-inch edge-to-edge Infinity Display. However, the P20 lite is no slouch in the screen department either, with a similarly sized 5.8-inch Full HD+ display.
The Samsung’s excellent 12-megapixel camera is backed up by some seriously good AI software, allowing for superb photos, even in low light, but the P20 lite is typical of the Huawei stable, with a stunning 16+2-megapixel dual camera array producing snaps a pro would be proud of.
Otherwise, the specs of these two excellent Android phones are remarkably similar. 4GB of RAM provides a smooth gaming and streaming experience in both, and a solid 3000 mAh battery ensures that neither phone is likely to give up on you until well into the evening.
The S8 is more powerful, as you would expect from a top end handset, but the P20 lite will handle most tasks without complaint, and represents fantastic value for a mid-range smartphone.
