First of all, it is true that benchmarks do not represent the smartphone's performance in everyday life. Far from it. These are tests designed to test the full potential of a particular mobile device. In this case, the Huawei P20 that eventually totaled a score similar to the Samsung Galaxy S8.
This score was obtained on the Geekbench platform, one of the most popular and well known, along with AnTuTu. In February 2018, Huawei led the charts thanks to the HiSilicon Kirin 970 processor. It will be the heart of the Huawei P20 and P20 Pro.
Huawei P20 at the level of the Samsung Galaxy S8?
Still, it is still peculiar to see the Samsung Galaxy S8 and Samsung Galaxy S8 Plus practically equal the score of the Huawei P20. Note that unfinished firmware (system software) may have been used. We have seen this happen very recently with the Samsung Galaxy S9 disappointing at Anandtech. Also concerned was the use of firmware designed for Mobile World Congress (MWC) only, neither terminated nor optimized. Something that may perfectly be the case for this Huawei P20 tested at Geekbench.

It is less than two weeks before the Chinese manufacturer unveils its Huawei P20 in Paris. High-end models (P20 and P20 Pro) will use the HiSilicon Kirin 970 processor with 4 to 6GB of RAM. In this case the EML-L29 model uses a total of 4GB of RAM, which may be the base version of the model. standard.
We also have reference to the operating system, Android Oreo 8.1, the latest version of this platform from Google. Moreover, the smartphone will feature its own interface, EMUI 8.1, already based on this version of the operating system.
Scores below Samsung Galaxy S9
Following is the reference to the processor, its architecture, the number of cores (8) and the base / minimum processing frequency (1.84Gh). The test was performed today, March 14, 2018.
Looking at the numbers, the Huawei P20 managed to get 1878 points in single-core tests. It would achieve a total of 6699 in the multi-core tests. They are good scores of course but are comparable to the Samsung Galaxy S8 and Samsung Galaxy S8 Plus. The latter would be launched by Samsung in early 2017.
However we also already have the Samsung Galaxy S9, smartphones with 3500 in single-core scoring and a total of 8500 in the multi-core tests. A considerable difference in the scoring of the two tops. Hopefully, Huawei effectively still makes some product optimizations before it gets into the hands of consumers.
