Samsung Galaxy S20+ or Huawei P40 pro, two great brands almost at the same level in the top 10 smartphones, always make a buyer’s heart swing. Samsung’s latest jewel, launched on February 11, 2020 is the trio of Galaxy S20, S20+ and S20 Ultra. As for Huawei, on March 26, 2020, it launched the Huawei P40 Pro 2020. Allow us to reveal the configuration and advantages after our technical observation tour on both smartphones.
If I choose Samsung Galaxy S20+
In the nice trio of successors to the Samsung Galaxy S10, the Samsung Galaxy S20+ seems to be the perfect choice. Because Samsung fans have testified that it is the most balanced of the last three products of the Korean giant. Indeed, if S20 has a banal aspect and S20 Ultra as for him a little bit excessive, S20+ takes the same qualities of the two others with a moderate look.
If I choose Huawei P40 Pro
As for the Huawei P40 Pro, with its light weight, it claims to have the best camera in the world of smartphones. And following the historic qualities of its predecessors, it never ceases to amaze users and even testers. Its use imposes itself in particular areas where Samsung even wants to.
The configuration of the Samsung Galaxy S20+
Equipped with an ultra processor Exynos 990, it runs on Android 10. Equipped with 12 GB RAM and 128 GB storage, Samsung Galaxy S20+ distinguishes itself by its an ultrasonic fingerprint sensor. It has a built-in battery with a capacity of 4500 mAh, or 12 hours. Its loading takes 1h20.
The photo quality of the Samsung Galaxy S20+
On the photo side, the S20+ ensures good quality thanks to its 4 main devices on the back of the phone: a standard 12Mpx sensor, a 64Mpx curious photorealism sensor with optiquex3 zoom, and an ultra-wide-angle 12Mpx, and the last one is not yet precisely informed. It is possible to capture an 8K video with dimensions of 7680 x 4320 pixels, and can be extracted in several images of 33Mpx. From the front, the Samsung Galaxy S20+ has a single 10Mpx face camera in the centre of a 6.7-inch AMOLED display that offers “Infinity Display” with a screen-to-body ratio of 90.4%.
Watching a video is a pleasure even under the sun, you don’t need to look for an angle or adjust the contrast to enjoy the quality of the images. What was appreciated by the Korean manufacturer is the implementation of One UI economy mode. This way you can enjoy a wide streaming up to 12 hours with a sound output other than the jack: the speaker or USB-C.
The design of the Samsung Galaxy S20+
With rounded edges on all four sides and a light weight of 188 grams, the Samsung Galaxy S20+ is easy to handle. It has a curved screen and is fitted into an aluminium contour and covered by a glass back in flattering colours. It measures 162x74x7.8 mm and has no jack plug. Also, its shell resists a fall from a height of 15 meters thanks to an ultra-resistant glass Gorilla Glass 6. This jewel of Samsung is available in black, grey and blue.
The configuration of the Huawei P40 Pro
The successor of P30 Pro, it is also the most famous smartphone in China, it is the best phone nowadays. At first glance, it boasts a beautiful design and a high-end configuration.
It has 8GB of RAM storage and is powered by a Kirin 990 processor under Android 10. Like that of the Samsung S20, such power allows gamers to have a great time venturing into the latest games.This top model from Huawei works well in a 5G network for both nano SIMs. The Huawei P40 Pro has a very good autonomy because it is armed with a battery with a capacity of 4200 mAh.
The best photo quality of smartphones thanks to Huawei P40 Pro
Renowned for its photos, this latest model from Huawei offers us a 3-sensor camera with 12, 40 and 50 Mpx. The 50MP sensor allows you to see every detail, from near and far. It is characterized by a rather curious and wide lens of 1/1.28 inch and f/1.9. The image quality remains impressive in the night as well as under the sun. In addition to the possibility of zooming in at 50X, the sensor corrects the image even in high contrast where it is directed.
The camera triggers a set of automatic settings that are used to calibrate all captured natural effects. It uses all its default settings without losing the quality of detail and color. Three images are taken at once so that the best one can be chosen. A 4K video captured at 4K never jerky can record 90 frames per second. Failing that, a very vivid colour is to be savoured, however, this can be changed in the settings at the user’s discretion. Its photo block behind is more imposing than that of the P30 Pro, which in our opinion justifies the assurance of captures.
It has a double photo sensor of 32 Mpx before to perfect the selfie. This facial camera is located in the upper left corner in a large black bubble implanted inside the screen. Its screen benefits from a 12640×1200 pixel display with 441 dpi, 6.58 inch OLED and Full HD+ definition, and at the top of which the fingerprint is placed.
The design of the Huawei P40 Pro
The Huawei P40 Pro has a rather remarkable design. This darling of Android fans weighs 203 grams and measures 72.6 x 158.2 x 8.95 mm. It’s water and dust resistant. The screen covers the entire glass surface with a silky, satin-like feel and is not sensitive to fingerprints. Its edges are perfectly shaped. The corners are well rounded and the frame is made of aluminium that discreetly joins the curved glass edge at the front and back of the smartphone. So such rounded styling makes for good handling and a pleasure to the palm of your hand. It doesn’t have a jack socket like Galaxy S20, but it allows the use of USB-C earphones. Finally, this nice phone is available in three colours: black, gold and silver.
To review on Samsung Galaxy S20+
We could have done better on the design, we can avoid the imposing volume of the block of the photo camera which makes us go back to the old model. Because this volume can be easily persecuted by solid surfaces, causing damage to the camera. Then the fingerprint sensor is slow and only really improved compared to its predecessors. This is unfortunate and even if this makes the S20+ a powerful network phone, the 5G option does pay off. On the sound side, the speakers lack bass and quickly saturate yet the jack plug is not there.
To review on Huawei P40 Pro
The only problem, and not the least, often pointed out is the non-accessibility to Google services. Using a phone without Google and all its applications is certainly acceptable, but complicated. Although they have been around for a very short time, with the effort of the manufacturer, the relative replacement applications must be accessible with an easy guide. We mention AppGallery, Huawei’s API and especially the applications that should be updated automatically.
