The Samsung Galaxy Note 9 is no longer the best Android phone on the planet

If you're about to pull the trigger on the Samsung Galaxy Note 9 you may now want to think twice…

A mere two months after the Samsung Galaxy Note 9 won the accolade of being the best Android phone in the world, it has been dethroned by the Huawei Mate 20 Pro, which just bagged a maximum 5-star score from T3 on review.

In T3's official Huawei Mate Pro review we said that:

"The Huawei Mate 20 Pro delivers an experience that leaves absolutely nothing to be desired and, for all real-world intents and purposes, it is perfect. It's a phone that you'll soon fall in love with, and one that confirms Huawei's position as the most ambitious, pioneering smartphone maker in the world right now."

Indeed, the Huawei Mate 20 Pro has reviewed so well that it is now not just king of all Android phones in our mind, but it is also firmly lodged in T3's hyper-prestigious best smartphone guide, too, taking the Samsung Galaxy Note 9's spot and competing on the exact same level in terms of prestige and desirability as the phenomenal Apple iPhone XS Max.

The news of Huawei's triumph will no doubt worry Samsung, and especially so in light of recent reports that the Note 9 has supposedly had disappointing sales figures following its launch.

As such, if you've been thinking of picking up the Samsung Galaxy Note 9, it may now be worth checking out the Huawei Mate 20 Pro, as while it doesn't come with the undoubtedly excellent Bluetooth stylus functionality of the new Note, it is comparatively priced with the South Korean maker's flagship and offers more in terms of core performance and next-gen features.
