Huawei unveiled its latest Huawei Mate 20 Pro this week and Samsung and Apple were repeatedly mentioned in the official announcement.
Repeating the iPhone XS and Samsung Galaxy Note 9 names up to 30 times, Huawei wanted to claim that its Huawei Mate 20 Pro was capable of defeating either of them, whether in performance, autonomy or cameras.

Even though the new smartphone impresses me, I don't like such presentations very much. It just shows how Huawei wants to prove to the world that it is on equal footing. A "despair" that is not pleasant to see.
Huawei Mate 20 Pro has repeatedly attacked the Samsung Galaxy Note 9 and iPhone XS
After all, your Huawei Mate 20 Pro is impressive. It would not need questionable comparisons to surprise us.
However, these statements did not go against Samsung, which indirectly responded to claims that the camera of the Samsung Galaxy Note 9 was poor in low light situations.
In the image above we see one of the cases where Huawei compared a night mode photo with the iPhone XS and Samsung Galaxy Note 9. The images of the Mate 20 Pro get a light treatment after they are taken. That is, a way to make night shots more clear.
Thus, Samsung responded with the image above which shows us a low light photograph taken with Note 9. The image states that the dark colors are "natural". A direct tip to Mate 20 Pro image processing.
In short, I don't think this kind of presentation is beneficial to Huawei. You only compare a product when you want to prove that you are better than the competition. If the Chinese brand had focused on the details of the Mate 20 Pro instead of comparing them, I think it was a much more adult and true play.
