Samsung Galaxy S9 advantages - Sharper display, expandable storage, newer chipset and GPU, wireless charging, intelligent scan (iris scanner + facial recognition), Bluetooth 5.0, pressure sensor, higher IP68 water and dust resistance, headphone jack, desktop mode
Huawei P20 - advantages - Bigger native storage, dual rear camera sertup, 24MP front camera, larger battery capacity with 5A Super Charge, newer Android 8.1 Oreo w/ EMUI 8.1 skin, way cheaper price tag

Both are very attractive flagship phones! Go for the Galaxy S9 if you are in need of a handset with sharper screen, higher water and dust resistance rating, expandable storage, headphone jack, and slightly faster chipset.

On the other hand, the Huawei P20 is for those who need a higher base storage and battery capacity. It also has the better cameras according to DxOMark.

The selfie camera at 24MP is also way bigger than Galaxy S9's 8MP lens even if it has a bright f/1.7 aperture size. It even has an IR Blaster that you can use as a remote control for your appliances.
