P20 vs Galaxy Note8

Which one is best for you?

The Samsung Galaxy Note8 with the signature S-Pen was launched a year before the Huawei P20. It boasts a large 6.3-inch Super AMOLED display, dual camera and a powerful processor. The P20 has a smaller, 5.8-inch FullView Display that fits the palm of your hand, has a slightly bigger battery and Leica dual camera.

Get crisp and wonderfully steady pictures with the Galaxy Note8’s 12+12-megapixel dual camera, thanks to its dual optical image stabilisation. The P20 also come equipped with a 20+12-megapixel dual camera, and it uses AI image stabilisation, letting you capture incredibly blur-free images, even in low light and hard-to-shoot moments.

Switch easily between apps and level up your game play – the powerful Kirin chipset of the P20 and the superb Snapdragon processor of the Galaxy Note8 will both give you a velvet smooth performance. Even your graphic-heavy games will feel light, letting you truly enjoy a flowing gaming experience.

Whether you’re on holiday or on a business trip, Samsung’s smart assistant Bixby and Huawei’s HiVision will help you out – with the camera. Snap a quick photo to translate street signs and menus, find a nearby restaurant to eat at – they can even count the calories of your lunch based on a single photo.

Both models are packed with a lot of fantastic and fun features, but if you’re an S-pen fan, get the Samsung – and if you think that the bigger battery the better, go for the P20.
