Huawei Mate 10 Pro vs Galaxy S8+ vs iPhone 8 Plus: specs comparison


So, the Huawei Mate 10 Pro got just announced, and despite the name, it's a slightly toned-down version of the Mate 10. Yes, it sounds counter-intuitive, but it's how things work around here.  

The Mate 10 Pro brings along an OLED display though with a slightly lower Full HD resolution than the regular Mate 10: the latter has an LCD display with a Quad HD resolution of 1080 by 2560 pixels. Aside from that and a few other differences, the two devices share a ton of hardware similarities between one another. 

But how does this handset fare against the Galaxy S8+ and the iPhone 8 Plus as far as all the specs are considered? How do these three exceptional device compare one against the others, pound-for-pound?

It's our job to find out!
