Which one is best for you?
Samsung has long been celebrated for its outstanding screen technology, and the S9+ exemplifies this with a stunning Super AMOLED display that takes up 90% of its front. Its 12-megapixel dual camera excels in low light thanks to a f/1.5 wide aperture setting which allows much more light to reach the sensor.
Huawei’s flagship also has an OLED screen, although perhaps not as sumptuous as the Samsung’s. However, the P20 Pro wows with its sophisticated and versatile Leica triple lens snapper, giving results you might expect from a professional camera.
Both phones have hefty batteries, offering wireless and adaptive fast charging. Both are powerful, with 6GB of RAM and lots of storage space. Both have stereo speakers for improved sound reproduction, but only the Samsung retains the 3.5mm headphone jack.
Both these 2018 flagships exemplify the best in phone technology, with each manufacturer playing to their strengths. You can’t go wrong with either.
