P20 lite vs Galaxy S9 Plus

Which one is best for you?

Samsung’s latest plus-sized smartphone is a feature-packed beast that shows the Korean manufacturer at the top of their game. The P20 lite, by comparison, is a master class from Huawei in squeezing into a mid-range handset a load of the tech you’d expect to find in a high-end smartphone.

Both released in spring 2018, these phones will appeal to different buyers, depending on budget and expectations. The S9+ may be a big phone, but it makes the most of its size, with its gorgeous 6.2-inch Super AMOLED display covering 90% of the face. The P20 lite’s Full HD+ LCD screen may not be quite as dazzling, but it will still render games and movies with impressive clarity and colour.

The S9+ has an excellent dual camera with a wide aperture setting for outstanding low light shots, while the P20 lite showcases Huawei’s ground-breaking camera tech, boasting a superb 16+2-megapixel dual camera with depth control for professional looking portraits.

The S9+ has a hefty 3500 mAh battery, 6GB of RAM and stereo speakers, all of which justify its flagship status. But the P20 lite still manages to shine at a fraction of the price.
