Our own Gary Sims just pitted two major devices with similarly named chipsets against each other in a Speed Test G round. That’s right, it’s the Huawei P40 vs Samsung Galaxy S20 Plus fight out you’ve been waiting for!
To be clear, the variant of the Galaxy S20 Plus here is not one you’d buy in North America — those devices use the Qualcomm Snapdragon 865 chipset. The international models of the Galaxy S20 line, though, use Samsung’s own Exynos 990 chipset, which is what’s featured here. The Huawei P40 uses the proprietary Kirin 990 SoC, so this is an interesting matchup.
Who comes out the winner in the Huawei P40 vs Samsung Galaxy S20 Plus battle? You’ll need to check out the video above to see, but we’ll say this: you might want to rethink the P40 if you are looking to play some graphics-heavy games.
