Which one is best for you?
Screenwise, the Samsung S9 and the Huawei P20 stand shoulder to shoulder, both equipped with 5.8-inch displays plus high quality stereo speakers. But the Huawei sports a bigger battery, and it also features a 20+12-megapixel Leica dual camera, while the Galaxy S9’s single-lens rear camera only has 12 megapixels.
Thanks to the selfie focus, the Galaxy S9’s 8-megapixel front camera can take studio-quality self-portraits. But the P20 will up your selfie game with 24 megapixel shots, making sure that you look sharp and dazzling – day and night, close-up and far away.
The Galaxy S9 lets you shoot like a pro, even after dark. Capture your friends on a night out with stunning clarity – the 12-megapixel rear camera uses multi-frame noise reduction that makes your photos come out clear and bright without extra fine-tuning and photo editing. The P20’s Master AI can identify a range of categories in real time – such as portrait, group and night shot – and automatically adjusts lighting and settings so your photos will be the absolute best they can be.
Both the Galaxy S9 and the P20 comes with headphone jacks so you can immerse yourself in sound, and both feature the Dolby Atmos sound system that will give you a theatre-like audio experience. Listen to your favourite band and enjoy true Hi-Fi audio quality with the P20 wirelessly via Bluetooth, or let the Galaxy S9 surround you with glorious 3D sound.
Whether you want to take perfect shots or get soaked in sound, both the Galaxy S9 and the P20 offer dozens of features that will level up your smartphone experience.
