Today what could be the best mobile candidate of the year that we have seen has been presented. The Huawei Mate 20 Pro is official and it is going very, very hard. But how does it stack up against the competition? We have them face to face and this is the result of the comparison between the Mate 20 Pro and its direct rivals.
Huawei Mate 20 Pro: comparison against the high range
Huawei has taken a real giant step with the Mate 20 Pro. Fingerprint reader on the screen, the best triple camera we have seen on a mobile, a design that wins points and power to give and take are their main arguments. Will they be enough against the iPhone XS Max, the Pixel 3 XL and the Galaxy Note 9?
Mirror, mirror, which phone is the prettiest?
We start with one of the most subjective sections, and in which we can least help you. Although they all have a common factor, such as a glass back (although the Pixel 3 XL does not look like it), They are completely different ways of understanding a mobile.
We start with the Pixel 3 XL and the Galaxy Note 9, more traditional in terms of the fingerprint reader. On the opposite side is the iPhone XS Max, without a reader. But without a doubt the winner in this aspect, and by a landslide, is the Huawei Mate 20 Pro. And it is that the fact that it has a fingerprint reader under the screen is reason enough. In addition, the range of colors in which it is available, as well as the gradients, make it one of the most beautiful mobiles on the market.
Hardware and performance: beware, don’t be messed up
Without a doubt, a true clash of titans: Apple A12, Snapdragon 845 (or the Exynos on duty) and the Kirin 980. Although we are not going to see too many differences in this aspect, since the four fly at the moment of truth, the Kirin is the first processor on the market manufactured in 7 nanometers.
In this way, although EMUI is not our preferred layer, without a doubt with this processor it will be the most efficient in terms of autonomy. And it is that in this section it is also above its rivals.
To get started, shares amperage (4,000 mAh) with the Galaxy Note 9, while both are notably above the Pixel 3 and the iPhone XS Max. However, where we will really notice the capacity of the Mate 20 Pro is in the load, since It has the Huawei SuperCharge 2, which offers us 70% in 30 minutesa real barbarity.
Multimedia, who has the biggest camera?
Although in this case we are talking about paper, in the absence of testing all its cameras, we could say that the Huawei Mate 20 Pro chooses to be one of the best 3 mobiles in terms of photography. However, it is difficult not to hesitate if we see their competition.
No, we are not talking about the Note 9 or the iPhone XS Max, but in this case, andhe who takes the cat to the water is the Google Pixel 3 XL. And it is that the first tests with his camera have already come to light and they are a real delight. Again, Google’s photographic software is a good step above the competition, and that is something that not even the three cameras of the Mate 20 Pro or its 40 megapixels will be able to solve.
Conclusions: with which mobile do we stay?
Although it would be easier to say that the Huawei Mate 20 Pro is the most outstanding of these four, especially for its innovation, we must qualify these words. And it is that if we talk about buying a mobile of 1049 euros, we have to be more than sure.
Let’s start then eliminating from the equation the iPhone XS Max and the Galaxy Note 9, the most continuous. Here it comes into play if we prefer innovation, or a triple camera compared to the purity of Google and how complete its Pixel 3 XL is.
However, personally I have to say that without a doubt the Mate 20 Pro could be the best mobile of the year and a more than good purchase decision, since it is combined that it has been the first of the greats to dare to innovate with almost total perfection in most of its sections, where we do not find any Achilles heel.
And you, which do you prefer of the four?
