Mate 20 Pro vs Galaxy S10 – Similar features but there's one big difference in price

Huawei Mate 20 Pro debuted back in October and presented Android fans with a legion of features to get excited about.

First and foremost, the handset arrived with a triple-camera system that built on the solid foundation laid by the P20 Pro.

Mate 20 Pro swapped out the P20 Pro’s monochrome lens for a wide-angle sensor that, during’s testing, was more compelling and allowed for incredibly unique photos to be captured.

The Huawei handset also came with a gorgeous 6.39-inch display and a huge 4,200mAh battery that easily delivered all-day life for owners.

Mate 20 Pro was the first smartphone to come with what the firm dubbed “reverse wireless charging”.

This allowed the product to power other devices that were placed on its rear panel.

Mate 20 Pro was powered by the Chinese OEM’s own Kirin 980 processor that delivered swift performance across Google’s Android 9 Pie operating system.

Finally, the flagship also arrived with a compelling design, especially when presented in its Twilight colour.

Meanwhile, the Galaxy S10 was shown off by Samsung last night at the firm’s scheduled Unpacked event and comes in three immediate models with a 5G variant arriving later.

The most premium version of the product for now is the Galaxy S10+ that comes with a similarly-sized 6.4-inch AMOLED screen.

Underneath the panel itself is the phone’s fingerprint sensor that employs ultrasound technology as opposed to the Mate 20 Pro that uses an optical reader.

Ultrasonic fingerprint sensors are considered to be more accurate and secure than optical ones.

The Galaxy S10+ similarly comes with three camera lenses on its rear that are compromised of a 12-megapixel main, 12-megapixel telephoto and a 16-megapixel wide-angle sensor.

The latter should allow for the South Korean product to similarly take photos that fit more subjects into a single frame, just like the Mate 20 Pro.

Galaxy S10+ comes with a 4,100mAh battery that should delver all-day life for owners.

And just like the Mate 20 Pro, the S10+ can also charge other hardware that is placed on its rear.

While the S10+ and Mate 20 Pro share much in common, the latter is currently over £170 cheaper.

Amazon is currently selling the Huawei Mate 20 Pro in its only UK variant that comes with 128GB of internal storage and 6GB of RAM for £719.

This marks a significant price plunge from the flagship’s launch price of £899.99.


A number of other UK outlets, such as Argos and John Lewis, are selling the phone for £749.

While this is not as low as the cost offered from Amazon, it does represent a discount of over £150.

In contrast, the Galaxy S10+ is launching for £899.

This will give customers the version of the handset that comes with 128GB of memory and 8GB of RAM.

Prices rise to as high as £1,399 for those that want the product with 1TB of storage and a whopping 12GB of RAM.

However, it is worth noting Samsung fans that pre-order the S10 will receive a free pair of the firm’s new Galaxy Buds with the handset.

The Galaxy Buds sell for £139 on their own.
