Samsung Galaxy S9 vs. Huawei P20 Pro Specs Comparison!

Today I want to compare Samsung Galaxy S9 vs. Huawei P20 Pro. Both these two phone brands are my favourites. The first thing that is different in terms of design perspective is that the P20 Pro comes with an iPhone X notch at the top. Something many people dislike. This is a notch that many Android phone companies have started to copy and we may see an LG phone and OnePlus phone also come with a notch.

An interesting difference here is how the S9 comes with new Bluetooth 5.0 while the P20 Pro only has 4.2. This may be important to know if you listen to wireless sound with Bluetooth earphones since 5.0 has some nice improvements in technology.

Another major difference is P20 Pro comes with 4000mAh battery and S9 with only 3000mAh! This is something Samsung has been struggling with as of late. After the Note 7 fiasco with battery issues it feels like they are going the safe path by giving you less mAh just to be on the safe side. But people want a lot of mAh so their phone last a very long time.

A nice thing with the Galaxy S9 is how it gives you microSD card option to expand memory all the way up to 400GB. The Huawei phone has no option to expand memory.

A big difference between these two phones is how the Huawei phone comes with a triple camera on rear side. This is something that we have never seen in the past. 2017 was the big year for dual rear cameras. Perhaps 2018 will be the year of triple real cameras.

The secondary camera on Huawei P20 Pro comes with 24MP sensor while the S9 only has 8MP secondary camera. A bad thing with P20 is how it has no 3.5mm audio jack. The S9 comes with an earphone jack! Great for people that listen to stuff with wired earphones.

It seems like the Galaxy S9 gives you some extra screen protection with Gorilla Glass 5. My Huawei Mate 9 it’s screen broke very easy when I accidentally dropped it. So it seems like Huawei phones got lots of stuff to work on to make them stronger in the future.

In terms of display size it’s a bit bigger on the P20 Pro with 6.1” display the Galaxy S9 comes with 5.8” display. And S9 is then also a little bit lighter to hold in the hand. But many people would prefer a little bit heavier phone to get that premium phone feel experience. Both these phones have water resistance. But the Huawei phones is a bit slimmer which is a big deal for many.

Another problem with the Samsung phone is that the fingerprint sensor is still located too close to the rear camera. This has been a big problem on the Galaxy S8. It also has a design that isn’t rounded so it feels too small. Both the phones run latest Android 8.0 Oreo OS. And they both have Octa-core processor and very similar GPUs so gaming performance should be very identical.

To summarise: It mostly comes down to what brand you are most comfortable with using. And what design you prefer the most since the specs is very high end on both devices. Many Apple users will probably think you are an iPhone X fanboy if you buy the Huawei P20 Pro.

I wish both of these phones came with a built in stylus like Galaxy Note 8. Samsung has also a very useful Always-on-display that is super useful. Not sure if the Huawei phone comes with that. Could also be good to know that the P20 Pro comes with 6GB of RAM and Galaxy S9 only with 4GB.

It also seems like the P20 Pro phone has a home button at the bottom. It seems to be a real hardware button. Something that many people enjoy to have on front. Especially in these days when more companies are removing that feature.

The price is around the same for these two phones. Huawei is the new Apple I feel since they are very hungry and making gains fast in the phone world. And they produce quality phones compare to boring HTC, Sony and LG!

Samsung Galaxy S9 New Smartphone!

Samsung has finally unveiled their new high-end phone for 2018! It’s called the Samsung Galaxy S9. It might be the last S high-end phone from Samsung. They may change the letter structure! Let’s take a look what it gives you.

Main specs: 5.8 inch Super AMOLED Display with 1440×2960 pixel resolution screen, Corning gorilla glass 5 protection, Android 8.0 Oreo Nougat, Exynos 9810 Octa in Europe and Snapdragon 845 Chipset in USA, Octa-core processor with 4×2.8GHz Mongoose M3 and 4×1.7GHz Cortex-A55 in Europe and Octa-core 4×2.7GHz Kryo 385 and 4×1.7GHz Kryo 385 Silver in USA, Mali G-72 P18 GPU in Europe and Adreno 630 in USA, microSD support up to 400GB, 64/128/256GB models, 12MP Primary camera, 8MP secondary camera and 3000mAh non-removable battery!

The first thing that annoys me with this phone is how it still packs a rear fingerprint scanner which is too close to camera. Compared to the Galaxy S8 where the scanner was side by side with camera now they have moved it to be located under. This may be a better location. But I’m still annoyed how it doesn’t come with a rounded design. The design Samsung goes with is more annoying!

Another thing that is scary is the high price of 840 euro! Smartphones are getting super expensive these days and this is not even the premium edition! Back in Galaxy S3 days in 2012 a high-end phone used to cost around 600 euro. Sad to see how much they have raised the prices at the same time when they don’t really offer any major selling point.

This phone will come in 4 colours: Midnight Black, Coral Blue, Titanium Gray and Lilac Purple! Thankfully it still comes with 3.5mm audio jack. Thanks Samsung for not going full iPhone X. You can also record video in 2160p resolution at 60 frames per second.

Another big selling point is how it’s still IP68 water resistant same as earlier years with Samsung high-end phones. It does still come with glass back that may break easy. I hope Samsung adopt metal or plastic again in the future. Because they are better materials to use on a phone! It has a pretty low weight of just 163 grams!

Samsung Galaxy S9 May Look Like This!

Samsung Galaxy S9 is a new phone that we are expecting to see in 2018. We now have a concept render of how that phone may look like.

The first thing that you can see on these renders is how it features a fingerprint scanner that is now located below the rear camera. This is a better location than what we saw on Galaxy S8. On S8 the fingerprint reader is located on the side of the camera. Which makes it more complicated to reach and sometimes you hit the camera instead. Also the S8 sensor many times cant detect your finger. I never have this problem with Huawei Mate 9.

You see various colours in these renders as Black, Silver, Gray, Blue and Gold edition. In terms of specs I have talked in the past that S9 will probably feature the latest Snapdragon 845 chipset with new Adreno 630 GPU, latest Bluetooth 5.0 with better wireless audio codecs and Quick Charge 4+.

Other specs we probably will see is a 5.8″ Super AMOLED vibrant screen. I hope we see a 8GB RAM model of the S9. And we may see stock storage inside S9 to be 128GB. Which is a step up from 64GB. But it wouldn’t be too strange, we already see low end Android smartphones now coming out with 64GB of storage.

It looks like S9 will not have a major redesign. That it mostly will just tweak the fingerprint scanner location. So a bit like Apple when they kept same design from iPhone 6 to iPhone 8. Not any major redesigns on most phones these days. It seems like they are working more on trying to improve the software these days. But we are reaching a stage where most phones have become so good that you don’t need to upgrade every year.

Samsung Galaxy S9 To Feature 3MP Iris Scanner!

Samsung Galaxy S9 and Galaxy S9+ new Samsung smartphones we will see in 2018 we are rumored to get a 3MP iris scanner to more easily be able to scan your eyes.

Right now I am sometimes using the 2MP iris scanner on my Galaxy S8 and it’s true that it doesn’t always work so good. Sometimes it really takes a long time for it to detect your iris. And many times it barely even works. The S8+, Galaxy S8 and Galaxy Note 8 all had a 2MP iris scanner. With this new phone they would bump it up to 3MP which is 50% more detail it can get and it will make it work so much better and faster! This will mostly be great for people that wear eyeglasses, moving their eyeballs, dark environment or too light environment.

Samsung want this process to unlock your phone in less than 1 second. As we know right now the Samsung fingerprint scanner can unlock phone in 0.1s. But I bet Samsung is working hard at improving the speed even more. Face scanners is getting more popular. Samsung first have an option to unlock phone with Iris another is that it scans for your Face. Unlock with face seems to be faster. But I bet iris scanner is more safer.

Apple is moving towards unlock phones with face too with their latest iPhone X. it seems like unlock with face will be the large thing in 2018. And that we will more move away from unlock phones with fingerprint or PIN code. Eventually we will probably have our phone unlocked the moment our body touch the device. It’s going to be interesting what other cool things that we may see in phones 2018. 2017 was the year we saw many dual camera phones and all-screen display smartphones.

New Samsung Galaxy S9 and S9 Plus Rumors!

Brand new Samsung Galaxy S9 and Galaxy S9 Plus that we will see in 2018 we will probably not see them be showcased on CES 2018 Samsung is now coming out saying. So we will probably see it instead on MWC 2018 in Barcelona in February/March or on a separate dedicated event.

The main thing that I’m most curious about is what new feature that Samsung will be working on. I really hope that they remove the glass back. One thing we may see with Galaxy S9 and S9+ is even less bezel. Because on Galaxy S9 there is still bezel on top and bottom. They may slim this down even further.

A nice rumor about the S9 is that we still may get the 3.5mm audio jack! Apple has started to remove this. Which is annoying. As well as other Android companies are doing it. But not all wants to use an adapter when listening to audio or use wireless headphones.

Hopefully they will have a better fingerprint sensor on Galaxy S9 than the one on S8. My S8 fingerprint always scans wrong on first time many times. Huawei Mate 9 has a more stable scanner. I also hope that the location of fingerprint scanner will be below the camera for easier reach!

We will probably see a dual camera inside the Galaxy S9. Which was the big thing 2017. Super many phones having it especially the low-end Android phone market! But Samsung didn’t implement it inside Galaxy S8! Galaxy S9 will probably feature Snapdragon 845 Chipset an upgrade from the current S8 Snapdragon 835 Chipset.

Also it seems like S9 will come with 6GB of RAM as standard or maybe even 8GB of RAM. Which will be plenty when gaming. We may see 128GB as base storage. High-end phones have slowly being moving up towards 64GB as default. And now the bar is being raised even higher.
