More better, this: https://www.gsmarena.com/oneplus_6t_5t_3t_evolution-review-1861p3.php or Huawei P20/P20 Pro.
Dont buy this phone: 1. No gorilla glass, the glass is weak. 2. The camera does not have good lighting. The S9+ has gorilla glass and has good lighting. The condition when there is shadow and you have to turn your phone to get good lighting on the subject the Huawei sucks and the S9+ shines. Strange that is not noticed during testing of reviewers. The weak glass is already mentioned by professional reviewers, but the lighting conditions not. My girlfriend has a S9+ so I could compare. If there was a shadowed environment, the S9+ was much more capable to deliver a good picture, the Huawei not.
David, 20 Jul 2018I've been using P20 pro for more than 2 months and it still amazes me every day on picturing a... moreHi .. what's ur opinion about the p2o pro after all this period? still good? what about it's durability, is the body fragile as many says?
Finally a long term phone review by a Pokémon Go player! The real question is forever how the phone performs when playing the game. Any lag?

Now it's just in some of the shots?? Hmm, not quite the bold statement anymore. Anyway, having seen the XZ2 (Premium or otherwise) first hand, I can tell you, it doesn't even come close.
Got mine this Saturday. I was using S7 edge before and got tired of Samsung. S9+ seemed to me the same phone with slightly better camera, processor and RAM. This was the best choice I have made so far for mobile. I have the twilight color, which is gorgeous, super snappy phone with amazing, truly amazing camera. Night mode is just insane. And I am extremely heavy user and still have 20% left at the end of the day (my Galaxy has to be charged twice a day). I highly recommend it !

Huawei is using slow-mo and making it look like super slow-mo using software tricks. S9+ has an option to use the slow-mo mode (could be enabled in camera modes and doesn't have artificial time limits to it in addition to recording at 1080p) which is also usable in low-light conditions.
matt99, 24 Jul 2018So what about the GPU boost?Huawei flooded the web with ads about it but there's still no reliable conclusion about its application. A major reason is Huawei refusing/stalling to push the firmware updating that function beyond Mainland China, result of that, none of the major tech outlets have a review on it.
Some Chinese videos show demonstrations of the tech but because of the opaque advertising policy in China you don't know if those are honest,. Huawei released a proven "fake ad" about GPU Turbo in China just a couple of weeks ago. I'd wait for more credible sources.
Spudly Mcgudly, 26 Jul 2018I have never seen a comparison that put the XZ2 above the P20 Pro in low light.. do you have a... moreXZ2*Premium*, the one with the BW second camera. Still on preview firmware with very unstable performance (general tendency to overexpose, also the smearing on some night samples involving both cameras is even worse than P20P, etc.), but I see that in some samples the XZ2P wins out. P20P performance, at least in auto, is generally predictable now. In night mode, (extra) smearing or not, that's still a major question.
Josh, 20 Jul 2018Debate of No headphone is sooo 2017, wake up dude its a trend now and not a deal breaker!Nope. It's a wrong trend and it's a total deal-breaker. And I hope that all cheap makers who spare money on the headphone jack pretending that it's a trend, go bankrupt.
Walter C. Dornez, 25 Jul 2018How so? All the comparisons I've seen have made me shift to the XZ2 Premium, though it was a t... moreI have never seen a comparison that put the XZ2 above the P20 Pro in low light.. do you have a link?
On an unrelated note, I have never noticed the issue with the stereo sound this review picks up. In fact, quite the opposite.. I find the stereo separation and the bass effect even at high volume to be one of the best since the good old HTC boom sound days. What does everyone else think?
Manu76, 25 Jul 2018You're sure of that, in low light photography, Sony still worse than p20 pro. How so? All the comparisons I've seen have made me shift to the XZ2 Premium, though it was a tough comparison.
