If the Galaxy S10 Plus is the first great phone of 2019, then Huawei wants its just-announced P30 Pro to be even better. Huawei's ambitions are well-known. In January, the CEO of Huawei's consumer business, Richard Yu, said the company plans to snatch Samsung's coveted title as world's largest smartphone brand by the end of 2020, or "this year at the soonest." That desire to displace Samsung as No. 1 means that the P30 Pro isn't just any flagship phone. It's a flagship phone with a mission.

That makes pixel density on the Galaxy S10 Plus higher -- 522 ppi compared to 398 ppi.

It only gets sharper if you change it in the setting, and the majority of people don't. If you're one who would, then Samsung has the advantage here, in theory at least.

Both the P30 Pro and Galaxy S10 Plus have in-screen fingerprint readers that let you unlock the phone, but they use different technologies to get you in. Samsung is the first to embrace Qualcomm's ultrasonic fingerprint sensor, which uses sound waves to unlock the phone (see the video for a fuller...
