Huawei Mate 20 Pro or Samsung Galaxy S9 Plus? Which one is worth choosing? We compare both smartphone models.
Samsung Galaxy S9 Plus is a Korean flagship that apart from excellent workmanship stands out with a waterproof case, a bright display that perfectly reproduces details, a dual rear camera and the ability to record 4K UHD movies 60 fps,
Huawei Mate 20 Pro in turn has already been recognized by many as the best smartphone of this manufacturer and one of the best phones that have appeared on the market in recent times. Its advantage is undoubtedly: the powerful Kirin 980 processor, the perfectly optimized Android system, as well as the design and perfection of the workmanship.
Both models have minimalist and refined design. In the phone cases, durable glass (front and back) and aluminum (sides) were used as the material. In Samsung this glass is of course Gorilla Glass 5. Excellent quality of housing, curved edges of the screen and virtually frameless design makes you fall in love with them. Phones have very similar parameters when it comes to the size of the housing and weight. The Samsung Galaxy has dimensions (height / height / gr): 158.1 x 73.8 x 8.5 mm and its "opponent": 157.8 x 72.3 x 8.6 mm. The differences in dimensions are minimal: the Huawei Mate 20 Pro is 0.3 mm shorter and 1.5 mm narrower, and the Samsung 0.1 mm thinner.
In this respect, the Huawei Mate 20 Pro slightly outperforms Samsung's proposal. Let's start with a diagonal, which is higher 3.06% (6.39 in Mate 20 vs 6.2 in S9 +).
The Chinese flagship is equipped with a 6.39 "AMOLED display and an extended 19.5: 9 aspect ratio. The display has a resolution of 1440 x 3120 px and is 5, 41% larger than Samsung's (1440 x 2960 px). Huawei Mate 20 in the Pro version also has a higher pixel density - 538 ppi (Samsung 538 ppi).
In Samsung Galaxy S 9 + special emphasis was placed on data security. The phone uses AES encryption technology and supports NX-bit, which protects applications from malicious software attacks from outside. This is not in the Huawei Mate 20 Pro. Samsung also uses HMP (Heterogeneous Multi Processing) technology, which increases the efficiency of the phone. The processor clock in Samsung is also 18.23% faster than the Huawei Mate 20 Pro (4 x 2.9GHz & 4 x 1.9GHz vs 2 x 2.6 & 2 x 1.92 & 4 x 1.8GHz) and has 128GB more internal memory.
Both models of phones are characterized by excellent quality cameras, but ... While Samsung's offer can be described as "very good", Mate 20 Pro "sweeps the competition." The Chinese flagship is equipped with three cameras with different focal length lenses and Leica optics. Huawei Mate 20 Pro has up to 3x wider range of focal lengths than Samsung Galaxy S9 +, not to mention such features as a perfectly working night mode, fantastic image stabilization or super macro mode.If we are looking for a phone for photos, there is no better choice. video at better resolution, then let's reach for Samsung, which provides better video recording quality (2160 x 60 fps vs 2160 x 30fps).
Samsung is also packed with various functions missing from Mate 20. One of them is the ANT + protocol, which allows communication between various sensors and training devices. The phone also has a heart rate monitor and an iris scanner. Mate 20 has a fingerprint reader in the screen. It also uses face recognition in 3D, meaning 3D Face Unlock. With this function, we will unlock the phone by scanning facial features.
Wireless and quick charging are available in both camera models. Huawei Mate 20 Pro is equipped with a larger battery (4200mAh versus 3500 mAh), which can translate into a longer working time of the phone.
And what is the price of both phones? We have to pay over 1000 more for the Chinese flagship. That's a lot, but taking into account what we receive in return, it is worth to try for such an expense. For Huawei Mate 20 Pro at this point, we have to pay PLN 3,499.00 to PLN 3,6999.00. The Samsung Galaxy S9 Plus is much cheaper, whose parameters in comparison to the price do not fall out worse than the competitor - from PLN 2,228.00 to PLN 2,899.00.
Taking into account the value for money and features, the Samsung Galaxy S9 Plus is a better choice. It all depends on the individual needs and wealth of the portfolio.
