BySigismondo Eisenhower 2019-10-04 3143

September 20, 2019, Huawei Mate 30 was released. The new mobile phone promises to be one of the most powerful on the market thanks to its four cameras that offer high quality and a wide range of possibilities to its users. But today we want to take a look at the evolution of this device and compare it with the rest of the P30 family that has been presented this year. That's why we tell you the differences of the Huawei Mate 30 and Mate 20, Huawei P30, Huawei P30 Pro.


Mate 30 vs Mate 20

Let's start with the Huawei Mate family. As you know, this is the line of mobile phone from the Chinese firm that usually arrive in the second half of the year, showing all the power that the company can deploy when it comes to making a high-capacity phone. So let's see what differences there are from year to year between the Huawei Mate 30 and Mate 20.



The first thing that attracts attention is the size of the screen that is larger in the new model. Specifically, we face the 6.62 inches of the Mate 30 against the 6.53 of the Mate 20, which curiously are still larger than their Pro versions. In fact, the size of last year's model is the same as the Pro version of this one.

Following by the back, the system of cameras that integrate the two terminals maintains its number in three lenses that improve in the main of the most modern model. Specifically, this goes from 12 MPX to 16 MPX, while the wide angle is maintained at 16 MPX and the telephoto lens at 8 MPX.

If we focus on the interior, leaving aside the storage, RAM and batteries (where you barely gain autonomy) the big difference between the Huawei Mate 30 and the Mate 20 is in the Kirin processor. The 990 of this year not only improves in power and speed, also brings a major improvement to the device provided you're willing to pay 100 euros more and is not another improvement than the 5G.

If you're thinking about the price, you have to know that both went to market with the same price: almost 800 euros, but now is the Mate 20 which is cheaper last year..


Huawei Mate 30 vs Huawei P30

It's time to take a look at the big differences from the flagship: Huawei Mate 30 vs Huawei P30. We assume that we compare a smartphone with its phablet of the year, so the difference in size is palpable. In fact, neither the standard version nor the Pro comes close to 6.62 inches of phablet.



As for the camera part here is where the P30 wins by a landslide with its main lens of 40 MPX compared to the 16 MPX of the Mate 30, although this is equal if we see the Mate 30 Pro version.

As for connectivity, although the Kirin processor is more modern in the Phablet, the two devices have a 5G version adapted to the new connections.


Android 10: the big difference

We could not leave this comparison without talking about the software of Huawei Mate 30 vs Mate 20, Huawei P30, Huawei P30 Pro. The four terminals base their operating system on Android, but this time there is a big difference: the Mate 30 does not have the Google Play Store.

This is a curious fact because the rest of devices are still 100% compatible with Google software, so apart from the price this can be one of the big differences that make you choose one mobile or another.
