Huawei has recently unveiled the P20 Pro and not only it has what it takes to compete against the iPhone X and the Galaxy S9+, it could very well sit on the throne of the best Smartphone to be released this year.

When it comes to the design, the Samsung Galaxy S9+ still resembles that of the S8+, which has infuriated some of the most hardcore fans of the manufacturer, as they were expecting something more, especially when Apple gave the iPhone X such a massive change in comparison to what the iPhone has been so far.
