Galaxy S10+ outpaces the Huawei P30 Pro in new speed test
The Galaxy S10+ and Huawei P30 Pro aren’t too dissimilar on paper, but Samsung’s flagship seems to hold up better in the real world. At least, that’s the conclusion that was drawn when the duo were pit against each other in PhoneBuff’s speed test — which is said to be the most accurate of its kind.
That’s because instead of relying on a human to maintain a consistent speed when controlling both devices, PhoneBuff uses a mechanical arm. He then repeats the entire test on each handset, according to GSMArena, in order to ensure the results recorded the first time are accurate.
The Galaxy S10+ came out in top by what could be considered a significant amount in the realm of top-tier smartphones, securing a seven second lead on the P30 Pro, with PhoneBuff nothing that Samsung’s fantastic RAM management could be the main reason the handset took the lead.
We aren’t going to rule that out. There isn’t much between the Galaxy S10+ and the P30 Pro on the hardware front — both were tested with a 7nm CPU, seeing as PhoneBuff opted for the Snapdragon 855 model, 8GB of RAM and UFS 2.1 storage, so software tricks would have played a big part.
The Snapdragon 855 variant of the Galaxy S10+ came out on top when challenged with the Exynos 9820 model in one of PhoneBuff’s earlier tests, so it’s likely that the Huawei would have taken home the trophy if PhoneBuff went for the European model of the Galaxy S10+ over the American one.
