Samsung Galaxy S10+ beats Huawei P30 Pro in a speed test

23 April 2019

It's very hard to perform a perfect speed test where a single unresponsive app or a random stutter doesn't foil the entire test. But as speed tests go, the PhoneBuff-styled one is the most trustworthy around the web - it's done with mechanical arms and the test is ran multiple times to secure as fair a result as can be.

In the latest PhoneBuff speed test the Huawei P30 Pro goes against the Snapdragon 855-powered Samsung Galaxy S10+, both using 8GB of RAM and both running UFS 2.1 storage.

Looking at the chipsets we have a 7nm architecture on both (while the Exynos 9820 is 8nm).

The two phones stay competitive during the test but ultimately the Galaxy S10+ manages to secure and hold a 7 second lead.
