P20 lite vs Galaxy S9

Which one is best for you?

The P20 lite and Galaxy S9 were both released in 2018, with rather different audiences in mind. Huawei’s mid-range option crams a lot into a very affordable phone, and while Samsung’s flagship represents an incremental upgrade over its predecessor, it remains one of the best high end smartphones out there.

If you’re after a reasonably priced smartphone with a bunch of the latest tech, you’ll find the P20 lite hard to beat. Loaded with 4GB of RAM for a smooth performance, and secured by both facial recognition and a fingerprint scanner, the Huawei punches well above its weight. The dual lens snapper is typical of Huawei’s excellent phone cameras, and its edge-to-edge Full HD+ screen will serve all your gaming and streaming needs with panache.

The Galaxy S9 is a premium smartphone, and has all the features you’d expect from a flagship. Building on the success of the S8, Samsung have created one of the best phones out there, with a stunning Super AMOLED display, an excellent dual aperture camera which excels in low light, and advanced security with Intelligent Scan – your iris, fingerprint and face combine to unlock the phone.
