Even though 2017 is coming to an end, it’s safe to say that it was a good year for smartphones fans. Every major tech company refreshed its smartphone lineup with high-end new devices which broadened the range of options from where smartphone fans can choose from. Just take Huawei and Samsung as an example.
Both companies came out kicking during 2017 and left their fans in awe with the number of premium smartphones they released all throughout the year. We’re not only talking about $800 devices such as Galaxy Note 8, but also about the more affordable smartphones like Galaxy A5 (2017).
On the other hand, we have Huawei that launched the highly anticipated P10 which is competing head on against Galaxy A5 (2017). With that in mind, today we will compare these two gadgets from a hardware specs point of view and see what they offer.
The most important thing that a smartphone can feature is a high-end set of hardware specs. These specs will not only guarantee that the smartphone is able to perform any tasks but they will also guarantee that the smartphone’s expiration date is far away.
First off, we have Huawei P10 which ships with a 5.1-inches IPS LCD panel. This display features a full HD (1080 x 1920) resolution and its coated in Corning Gorilla Glass 5 for extra protection. The smartphone is powered by Huawei’s own-made HiSilicon Kirin 960 CPU. The processor features eight cores which clock at 2.4GHz and which are also paired with a Mali-G71 MP8 GPU and 4GB of RAM.
Samsung’s Galaxy A5 (2017) sports a slightly bigger 5.2-inches Super AMOLED panel that features the same full HD (1080 x 1920) resolution. The display is also coated in Corning Gorilla Glass but it’s a lower model of scratch-resistant glass.
Moreover, the smartphone is fueled by Samsung’s own Exynos 7 CPU. This processor features eight cores just like Huawei P10, but they clock at a smaller speed of 1.9GHz. Additionally, the processor is coupled with a Mali-T830 MP3 GPU and 3GB of RAM. From the looks of it, Huawei P10 is certainly the superior smartphone.
