The people have spoken!
A few weeks ago we took the Huawei P10 Plus with us to Taiwan along with the Samsung Galaxy S8+. We had a grand old time in the Republic of China, and we used both (along with the HTC U Ultra) as our primary devices during our weeklong stay in Taipei. Our stay in Taiwan presented a unique opportunity to showcase the cameras of both the Galaxy S8+ and the Huawei P10 Plus in a variety of conditions, and honestly the way the camera shootout played out surprised us, a lot.
We initially thought that the blind camera test of the two phones would be a blowout in favor of Samsung’s latest and greatest, but apparently the general public chose Huawei’s P10 Plus photos (Phone B) over Samsung’s Galaxy S8+ (Phone A). Both phones have relatively good cameras, and performed admirably even in low-light conditions, but as of press time, around 57% of the votes garnered was for Phone B (Huawei P10 Plus) while only 43% went to Phone A (Samsung Galaxy S8+).
Even better, Huawei’s P10 Plus is a lot more affordable than Samsung’s Galaxy S8+, retailing at Php 36,990 compared to Samsung’s Galaxy S8+’s Php 45,990. Obviously you’re not getting that super gorgeous 6.2-inch Super AMOLED QHD panel with the P10 Plus nor the flagship Exynos 8895 octa-core processor, but as with everything, there’s always a trade-off.
