MirzaSohail, 16 Nov 2018Galaxy Note 9 or Huawei Mate 20 pro...?
2.Batt... more1. If you are a smartphone photographer, go for Mate 20 Pro. If you are after better video recording, go for Note 9.
2. Battery life is better and the speed of wired/wireless charging is a lot faster on Mate 20 Pro.
3. Performance is better on Mate 20 Pro, though if you are a light user you probably wouldn't notice much of a difference.
4. Again, Mate 20 Pro should be better if you only look at the graphics performance. Note 9 has better display and speakers though, and it has a dedicated headphone jack which sounds better than the dongle on Mate 20 Pro.
5. I would say they perform really similarly here, though Huawei usually has slightly faster OS update than Samsung.
6. Who knows, nobody ever used either of them for 30 months.
7. They both use curved glass panel on the front and the back, so they should be equally fragile if you accidentally drop it.
Galaxy Note 9 or Huawei Mate 20 pro...?
6.Last for 30 Months atleast
I just want to know how the mate 20 pro score higher in speaker test than samsung s9 i even try it by myself
how does all reviewer say this is the fastest android chip.
benchmark says. antutu lost. gpu lost. what next

Its from ma... moreI haven't had the time to read so many reviews but so far your conclusions cannot be extrapolated from GSMA's and PA's reviews(I examined PA's individual stills samples, as for the "video" you mentioned I didn't see any).
I don't pay much attention to most youtubers because of their (particularly) patchy methodology and that the nature of videos is that one is unable to extract original OOC samples from them, but I'll be keeping an eye out for more credible reviews, especially Anandtech's when Andrei completes his review.
Is there any thing wrong with the battery life? It rates 85hrs but all three factors( talking time, video, and web browsing) are longer than p20 pro. Why p20 pro rates 87hrs, however, mate 20 pro rates 85hrs?

Apart from that DSLR used of course. Every ad on smartphones camera are using DSLR, they just want to illustrate the function. Huawei got caught & others dont. But u can just knows it if they use DSLR or not (a lot of smartphone brand use DSLR in ad). Its just how bussiness works, in every smartphone company.
Shui8, 02 Nov 2018Your funny. Like obviously so much hate lol.I'm just pointing out what's fair.
And as for the Note 9, I'm unaware of the fragile S Pen. I'll check it out though because I love me my Samsung.
iPhones are overpriced garbage units in my eyes.
And it's not just the Mate 20 line that I don't like, I don't like Huawei due to the lies and deceit.

Was the battery life test conducted with the screen set at 1080p or 1440p? I'd be interested in seeing the different scores for these two options.
lyndino, 02 Nov 2018Are they going to rightfully lower the score due to the screen issue? Because, it's just fair ... moreIf they do, then they better massively reduce the scores of iPhone XS & XS Max for their multi-gate issues & Note 9 for it's fragile S-Pen & Side-Buttons.
You see, every phone can be targeted for individual issues if desired, but that doesn't make it any less attractive to non-haters.

Good work! It is a fairer score for the phone. It's a fully satisfying phone and it rightfully deserves to be praised!
Checked out the phones in Photo Comparison Tool Chart
Mate 20 Pro is fantastic, Pixel 3 is amazing, but XZ3 is still next level
Shui8, 01 Nov 2018You just pick the weakness only from the Mate 20 pro camera (which i agree), but ignore the we... more"tends to overblown the highlights"
I don't know what you're talking about. In sample 2 the XS retained much better highlights of the sign which was pretty significant. Only in the XS shot could you tell that a few round light bulbs lit up the sign while Mate20P's sign was clearly overexposed and the area illuminated by the bulbs were all merged together concealing the shape of the bulbs. In sample 5, as I already mentioned in my last post, the XS retained more highlights whereas the Mate20P retained the least, pay attention to the strongly lit windows of the office building in the background. I think its just that the perceived DR of the Mate20P is sometimes higher because the PP algorithm suppresses highlight edges indirectly through the clarity boost, while the XS actually captured more DR.
"its actually smoothen the pics & create like an oil painting"
Again no idea what you're talking about, there's a difference between less artificial sharpening and more artificial NR. The issue with XS is that it tends to retain slightly more noise than is generally acceptable, not that it reduces noise at the cost of smearing, then cook in excess sharpening, that's Huawei.
"Note 9 now looks the most oversaturate photos"
P20P's oversaturation criticism was based on its rendition of natural subjects, here with all artifical constructs at night it's hard to tell whether saturation is too much or too little, I don't think anybody but you would bring this up as an issue, and personally I don't see any one of the three oversaturated or undersaturated, they all seem within acceptable parameters.
Also I don't believe Note9 really improved from S9, it's definitely at a disadvantage here from the dated setup.
"U supposely calibrate color temperature on screen/monitor, not on the picture results itself"
Fundamentally wrong. All displays should be calibrated to D65 unless for special purposes, and AWB is technically calibrated with a grey card with 18% reflectance across the visible spectrum as any medium displaying the resulting photo is assumed to be calibrated.
"Its a software tweaks that process the pics a bit longer than usual (maybe only for 1.5 seconds) is part of its Auto mod in certain situation."
That makes no sense, there's no need to hold still if the sensor isn't in the middle of an exposure. I don't know what exactly is going on but it's certainly not pure processing.
Nick Tagataka, 01 Nov 2018Uh, that's not really a night mode. PA specifically writes that it "asks you to hold the phone... more"when auto HDR kicks in it takes more than a second to show the image on the gallery preview on the bottom right corner"
From my experience Samsung's HDR algorithm is pretty crappy and usually doesn't engage automatically in low light, in fact I forced HDR once in low light and nothing improved but there was much more smearing so I gave it up. Forcing a high setting in GCam usually gives better results, but seems that doesn't apply to every camera APP.
That said from current information none of us know how long PA's Huawei shots took as they didn't specify. It's just that in their last night shot comparison with the P20P PA did mention that they used night mode so I thought they used the same testing method here. Also the smearing pattern should be somewhat different between P20P and the new model so I didn't rule night mode out based on the amount of smearing.
