This is another example of the "brighter isn't always better" saying. Huawei over-sharpened and over-processed the image. As a result it is unnatural looking and has tons of grains. Galaxy S8+ - 3 points

Verdict

You cannot go wrong with both! The Huawei P10 Plus and the Samsung Galaxy S8+ are trusty point and shoot cameras in any lighting conditions for a smartphone. Huawei P10 Plus won by just a hair in our test as the differences are very minimal. It's that close!
