Samsung Galaxy S9 vs Huawei P20 Pro Comparison

Samsung S9 vs Huawei P20 Pro

The Samsung S9 and Huawei P20 Pro are in the same category of affordability, and feature-rich smartphones. Their performance is still up to date, allowing for smooth operation and a good battery life. Not sure which one to choose? Here are a few things to help you decide.

Samsung Galaxy S9, a very complete smartphone

Both have high-resolution AMOLED panels, and the screens of these smartphones are similar. When using both smartphones, it's almost impossible to tell them apart. The Samsung Galaxy S9 stands out in terms of unlocking technology. Like the Huawei P20 Pro, it has the possibility of accessing the contents of the smartphone via facial recognition or the fingerprint reader. It adds possible iris recognition, a feature not available on the Huawei P20 Pro. It is also the only one that can be charged wirelessly or used as a laptop with some accessories.

Huawei P20 Pro, a triple photo camera

The performance of the Huawei P20 Pro and the Samsung Galaxy S9 are comparable. The Huawei P20 Pro stands out for its better life, thanks to a 4,000 mAh battery compared to 3,000 mAh for the Samsung S9. This allows it to gain 1 to 2 hours additional usage.

The presence of a physical button at the bottom of the device also makes it stand out. It is absent on the Samsung Galaxy S9 to leave more space for the screen. In the field of photography, the Huawei P20 Pro widens the gap. It has a triple photo camera, accompanied by a particularly interesting artificial intelligence. It can, for example, analyse a scene and adapt the photo settings accordingly.

These two smartphones are comparable in many ways and are among the most popular. They each serve different purposes. The Huawei P20 Pro is ideal for photography, while the Samsung Galaxy S9 is faster. It also has a larger screen.
