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!

Huawei P20 Pro New Smartphone!

Huawei has a pro edition of their P20 out. This one comes with a massive display. It also comes with same notch as iPhone X has in design.

Main specs: 6.1 inch AMOLED Display, 1080×2244 pixels screen, EMUI 8.1, Android 8.1 Oreo, Kirin 970 Chipset, Octa-core processor clocked at 4x 2.4GHz Cortex-A73 and 4x 1.8GHz Cortex-A53, Mali-G72 MP12 GPU, No card slot, 128GB Internal storage, 6GB of RAM, Triple camera with 40MP + 20MP + 8MP, Secondary 24MP camera and No 3.5mm jack!

Sad again that we are seeing more companies removing the 3.5mm earphone jack. I still have wired earphones so I need that function. And I don’t want to get a USB Type C adapter just for music listening! The battery has 4000mAh on the other hand which is very impressive.

But just because this phone has a triple rear camera this cause the price to be insanely high. Just as high as the Apple iPhone X! The fingerprint sensor is front mounted. It also comes with fast battery charging. The colours it comes in are Twilight, Black, Midnight Blue and Pink Gold!

Another nice thing that it has is IP67 certification and up to 1m and 30mins! This is both dust and water resistant! It has a pretty heavy weight with 180 grams. Very close to 200 grams. A good thing with it is the slim body with just 7.8mm thickness. This phone also comes with a slimmed down front home button. It seems to be same size as the home button on Samsung Galaxy S4!

The camera on the back side has a traffic light design just as iPhone X. Wish this phone had some special feature. Because the display is so large that I would like to see Huawei create a stylus and implement it into the body. So they can compete against the Samsung Galaxy Note lineup!

Huawei Mate RS Porsche Design New Smartphone!

Huawei Mate RS Porsche Design is a premium new smartphone. Let’s take a look at what it gives you. This is one of my favourite new mobile manufacturer companies at the moment.

Main specs: 6.0 inch Display, AMOLED screen type, 1440×2880 pixels, Android 8.1 Oreo with EMUI 8.1 on top, Kirin 970 Chipset, Octa-core processor with 4x 2.4GHz Cortex-A73 and 4x 1.8GHz Cortex-A53, Mali-G72 MP12 GPU, No card slot, 256/512GB Internal storage phone and 6GB of RAM!

But the main thing that is the most amazing is how this phone comes with a main Triple camera! It features 40MP + 20MP + 8MP lens! This is super impressive I have never seen a phone with this setup in the past. The three apertures are F1.8 + F1.6 + F2.4! Of course this will boost up the price so it will only be a phone for people with wealth!

The secondary camera comes with a 24MP lens! It has a more standard F2.0 and 1080p video recording! In terms of Bluetooth it’s a bit sad this phone lacks Bluetooth 5.0 and only comes with 4.2.

The battery is pretty big as well with 4000mAh! But it’s a non-removable battery. This phone comes in 2 colour editions Black and Red. The price will be around 1600 euros. Which is like buying two iPhone 8! The USB connector is 2.0 Type C. You don’t get any 3.5mm jack which is very sad at this price range.

Not too thick phone just 8.5mm and the weight is 183 grams with IP67 certification which makes it dust and water resistant up to 1m for 30 mins. This is also a Hybrid Dual SIM phone! The fingerprint sensor is located at the rear side!

Huawei P20 New Smartphone!

Huawei P20 is a new phone that comes with an iPhone X design. Many Android phones are copying Apple’s new high end device. Because it comes with a notch on the top display!

Main specs: 5.8 inch Display LCD type with 16.7M colours, 1080×2244 pixel screen, 48 pixels per inch, EMUI 8.1 Based on Android 8.1, Huawei Kirin 970 Chipset, Octa-core processor with 4x A73 cores clocked at 2.36GHz and 4x A53 cores clocked at 1.8GHz, Mali G72 MP12 GPU, 128GB Internal storage, 6GB of RAM, No card extend support and 4G LTE speeds!

Another awesome thing on Huawei P20 is a 3.5mm earphone jack something that many other high end phones are removing. The front facing camera is using a 24.0MP sensor and the Dual Back camera is using 20.0MP + 12.0MP sensor! The back camera has F1.8 and F1.6 combined. Other cool things are BSI CMOS, Auto Focus, LED Flash and 2x Hybrid Zoom.

The battery inside has 3400mAh which is pretty standard size for what to expect. It comes with OTG support and NFC for mobile payments. The USB connector being used is USB Type C. It’s a pretty slim device only 7.65mm in thickness and low 165 grams weight.

The camera on the back looks like the traffic light design the Apple iPhone X had but it doesn’t seem to protrude as much. I like the Blue edition of this phone. This phones comes with AI support since the 970 chipset support NPU.

You also get DOLBY AUDIO on board of Huawei P20 for a great movie watch or music listen experience. The build is using metal and glass. Sadly I’m not a big fan of glass phones since they usually tend to break eventually. And then it becomes expensive and hard to replace it. This phone packs three colours Midnight Blue, Champagne Gold and Pink Gold.

Huawei G9 Plus New Smartphone!

Huawei G9 Plus is a new cool smartphone from the popular chinese phone brand Huawei. This phone cost a little bit more than Xiaomi Redmi 5 Plus.

Main specs: 5.5 inch Display, 1920×1080 pixels screen, 401 pixels per inch, EMUI 4.1 + Android 6.0 Marshmallow, Snapdragon 625 MSM8953 Chipset, Octa-core processor clocked at 2.0GHz, Adreno 506 GPU, 32GB Internal storage, 3GB of RAM, External Micro SD card support up to 128GB and 4G LTE connectivity!

Pretty basic specs of what you would expect from a phone around this price range. In terms of materials G9 Plus is using Plastic and Metal body. Two colour variants exist Gold and Silver.

The battery it comes packed with has 3340mAh! Which is large for a low cost Android device. We are starting to see most new phones coming out with at least 3000mAh battery these days. In audio you get 3.5mm audio jack to use wired cable!

The front camera is an 8.0MP variant which is pretty high resolution for a front camera. It features F.2.0 aperture. The main camera also packs same F2.0 but has 16MP instead. Other specs incude: CMOS, Flash light, PDAF, OIS and video recording at 4K with 30fps!

On the back side of the phone you can find a fingerprint sensor mounted. Was very impressed when I saw that this phone is only 7.3mm in thickness. The weight is 160 grams which is pretty low and the USB connector is using brand new USB Type-C cable.

Huawei G9 Plus doesn’t come with an all-screen display on front side but it packs some bezel top and bottom side. But what is cool is that you get 2.5D arc screen. I like the square design that you can see on the back side. Usually fingerprint sensor is rounded but in this phone Huawei tried something new and unique! Very impressive!

Earlier this year I unboxed the Huawei Mate 9 which became one of my favourite phones of all time! I even like it more than Samsung Galaxy S8 because it comes with aluminium metal back instead of glass back as S8 have. Also S8 has a bad fingerprint sensor that usually doesn’t work at the first try.
