Galaxy Note 10 vs Huawei P30

Samsung recently launched the Galaxy Note 10 and Note 10+, which are its newest premium smartphones to enter the market.

The Note 10 and Note 10+ both offer substantial improvements when compared to the Note 9 range, including an improved camera design and a new processor.

Asking the real questions. Can we have a side by side of fibre and dial up next please?

One would think that the Huawei P series is aimed as a direct competitor to the Samsung Galaxy S series; and the Mate series to the Galaxy note series. Nonetheless, they both make good smartphones and it all depends on the buyer's needs and personal preference or brand loyalty.

Android phones are getting ridiculous now. 12GB of RAM on a smartphone?
Those okes need to learn to optimize rather than throwing more hardware at stuff ekse.

People care about specs, regardless of the OS. iPhone users get fantastic results in benchmarks and love pointing out they have something faster than anything.

It can't open Netflix, or Spotify or most apps faster than anything else - but the benchmark numbers is what matters

If that were the case we'd all still be using 8086 processors with 16MB of RAM. Progress in tech is to some degree spec based (as prices go down, capacities and speed increase). Never heard anyone complain that they have too much RAM.

On a smartphone, especially a high end device like the Note, more RAM doesn't mean things aren't optimized, it simply means more of your apps can carry on running (suspended) in the background and be available instantly when you switch back to them. I'd have 64GB of RAM in my phone if they offered it :)

And on a R20K+ device you'd hope it would still be relevant in 3-5 years, so more RAM is a way of future proofing a bit.

Or is it a case of throwing resources at badly optimized software?
iPhones have substantially less memory and are very responsive, but they are also heavily optimized.
