Summary of advantages

Samsung Galaxy Note10+:
• Larger screen w/ smaller notch
• Gorilla Glass 6
• Larger RAM
• Larger storage
• Higher telephoto camera resolution
• DepthVision camera

• Larger battery capacity

Huawei Mate 20 Pro:

It’s interesting to see the Huawei Mate 20 Pro put up a good fight for a smartphone released in 2018. While the Note10+ has a larger screen with a smaller notch and Gorilla Glass 6, the Mate 20 Pro offers a higher screen resolution with Gorilla Glass 5, which is not bad.

The Note10+ dominates the Mate 20 Pro in terms of RAM and storage capacity, as well as the inclusion of the S-Pen, which gives it additional features that are attractive to power users. The Mate 20 Pro is still not bad though, as its configuration can still be considered flagship level. It even has an Infrared Port which the Note10+ doesn’t have.

The Mate 20 Pro, on the other hand, boasts a higher main, ultra-wide, and front camera resolution, which is still a significant factor when it comes to photography although we’re yet to see which one is better in terms of overall quality until we have reviewed both units side-by-side.

Powering the Note10+ is either a Snapdragon or an Exynos chip, while the Mate 20 Pro uses the Kirin 980. Battery-wise, the two support fast charging and wireless charging, but the Note10+ has a slightly larger capacity. We’ll find out which one has the longest battery life once we have the Note10+ for review.

Overall, the Note10+ is without a doubt a powerful device and a worthy upgrade. But if you’re also eyeing the Mate 20 Pro due to budget constraints, it can definitely still kick some ass.
