Both Samsung Galaxy S8 and S8+ were released in South Africa back on May 5th, with a variety of operators and contracts, depending on your needs. The S8 came with a recommended price of R15,499, while for the S8+ version you have to pay R17,499. Meanwhile, South Africa also saw the release of the Huawei P10 (R12,999) and the P10 Plus (R13,999). But let’s see a brief comparison between these two successful devices!
Huawei P10 comes together with a 5.1 inches display, complete with a 1080×1920 pixels resolution. Meanwhile, the Samsung Galaxy S8 offers a 5.8 inches Quad HD display, the resolution being 1440×2960 pixels.
Size and Weight
The Huawei product measures 143.5×69.3×6.98 mm, and the Galaxy device 148.9×68.1×8.0 mm. While the Samsung one weighs 155 grams, the Huawei P10 is lighter, with only 145 grams.
Both devices run Android 7, so there’s really not a big difference between them.
When it comes to camera, things are really getting competitive. Huawei comes with a back camera that can’t be defeated, counting 20 MP in monochrome and 12 MP RGB. Samsung Galaxy S8 offers a 12 MP dual pixel snapper on the back. The front camera is the same in both of them, namely 8 MP.
Storage and Internal Specs
Both devices come with 64 GB internal storage, and both of them can be expanded with the help of a microSD card. They both offer 4 GB RAM, but the processors are different. As such, Huawei relies on a octacore Kirin 960 CPU, while Samsung used the Exynos 8895 model, still octacore.
Finally, the winner when it comes to battery is Huawei, with a 3200 mAh one, in comparison with Samsung, which offers 3,000 mAh. All in all, they are both excellent devices, but it depends on users’ preferences.
