From the forums: Should you switch to the Huawei Mate 20 Pro from the Note 9?

If you're looking to buy a large smartphone this year, one of our first recommendations is the Samsung Galaxy Note 9. Its unrelenting power, gorgeous display, and better-than-ever S Pen make it a joy to use, and to not much surprise, a lot of our AC forum members have decided to pick one up.

Even though the Note 9 isn't that old, Huawei's new Mate 20 Pro is starting to entice at least one owner into switching. Here's how the community responded.

Looks like a beautiful phone with nice features but not as established as the note line and doesn't offer anything more for me ...Only way I'll give up my Note is with another Note😉


If it helps I had the P20 pro for 2 months. over hyped IMHO... no contest- NOTE 9 :)


I'm currently using the Matte 20 X. While the Mate 20 group of phones are outstanding and Huawei keeps improving them each year, I think you'd be just a little bit let down coming from a Note 9.

I felt similar but decided against too. the note 9 has far too many good features to give up just yet


What do you think? If you've got the Note 9, should you leave it for the Mate 20 Pro?
