Where exactly is Huawei Mate 20 Pro compared to iPhone XS

ByLinky Johnson 2018-10-23 1686

Last night, Huawei launched the product of Huawei Mate 20 series in London, UK. The press conference was very fast-paced.Every time Yu chengdong introduces an item, he basically takes out the iPhone XS and "plays" it, so can the Mate 20 Pro actually hit the iPhone XS? Now the launch event is over, the full Mate 20 series is finally presented to us . We also compared and analyzed with the iPhone XS and Mate 20 Pro to see where Huawei has stabilized.

Of course, before we do that,let's first define the subject of the comparison. Since we want to compare the iPhone XS, we should choose the Huawei Mate 20 Pro, which is slightly cheaper in Europe than the iPhone XS. If we want to compare the Mate 20, it might be more fair to choose the iPhone XR.So, let's start with the look of the two phones.


Screen: Mate 20 Pro with narrower bezels, lightly better

On the outside, the Huawei Mate 20 Pro and the iPhone XS both adopt the bangs screen design, but in terms of the direct view of the two phones, the border width of the iPhone XS seems to be more even. Of course, the overall frame is also wider, which has been reflected in the PPT of the conference.

How can Huawei make the frame narrower? Maybe it is related to the adoption of curved screen in Huawei Mate 20 Pro. The screen of Mate 20 Pro is bent down on both sides to achieve the border of 2.1mm.From the width of bangs and frames, we can clearly feel the difference between the two products.

Of course, if you prefer even borders, even if the width of the border is wider, the iPhone XS is your choice. The frame is certainly related to the choice of obsessive-compulsive patients, and the screen is also important. The Mate 20 Pro USES a 6.39-inch 2K OLED screen with a screen ratio of 19.5:9, and supports dci-p3 wide color gamut and HDR high dynamic display. From these parameters,the two phones don't seem to be winning or losing.


But the Mate 20 Pro comes with both a 3-d, structured light design and an off-screen fingerprint (only an 8GB version, of course), something the iPhone XS doesn't, and Huawei appears to have the edge.


Dual SIM and waterproof: this point is not said, Huawei is stable

Dual SIM cards are necessary for Chinese users. Of course, the Mate 20 Pro is equipped with dual SIM cards, and the iPhone XS does not support dual SIM cards (the iPhone XS MAX supports). With the support of dual card and dual standby, Mate 20 also created the Nano SD card. The same card slot can be inserted into the SIM card or Nano SD card, which gives users a better choice.

On the design of waterproof, the Mate 20 Pro and the iPhone XS both support IP68 level waterproof. However, the Mate 20 Pro has a special waterproof cover, which provides water resistance of 5 meters and 30 minutes under the water. It is more capable of taking underwater pictures, which the iPhone XS does not have it temporarily.

From the appearance of the color,the iPhone XS and Mate 20 Pro go one way or another. Most of them are in solid colors, while Mate 20 Pro has a variety of gradually changing colors.These 5 colors are: resplendent halal, luxury sapphire blue, understated and bright black, pure cherry pink and gold, and the 5 colors of aurora. It's a matter of personal preference.Whoever wins won't be judged.

Performance: iPhone is still big, Huawei has yet to catch up

Speaking of appearance, let's take a look at the performance comparison between the kirin 980 and the A12. First, let's talk about the kirin 980 processor. Kirin 980 adopts the architecture of DynamIQ CPU cluster of cortexa76 + cortexa55 and malig76 10 core GPU, which brings comprehensive improvement to kirin 980. But just how far away the iPhone XS is from the iPhone XS will be known.


We can see that these run point result is similar on the whole, and previous exposure, GeekBench mononuclear points, 3328 points, the score from Apple A12 processor and gap, this is very normal, after all, Apple A12 single-core performance has been leading the android camp, on multi-core performance, kirin 980 also weaker than Apple A12 11, score 10000 points in wandering up and down.

The gap was even wider, with 274,254 points still a long way from Apple's 370,000. But it's probably just a version of how high the rabbit runs, so I won't go into that.


Signal communication: specialized in signals, Huawei is indeed stable

The performance is part of it ,and the signal is also important. Mate 20 Pro supports cat.21 with a download speed of 1.4Gbps.As for the signal, I believe  Huawei 's signal will not be worse than the iPhone XS series. After all, Huawei is a communication company.


It was also mentioned that the Mate20 Pro's WiFi speed is 1.4 times that of the iPhone XS Max, but since it has not been measured ahead, it can be skipped and tested later.


The Mate 20 Pro supports 4X4MIMO antennas, which are faster to download than the iPhone XS Max. The Mate 20 Pro also supports dual-frequency GPS and beidou navigation, which is not supported by the iPhone XS.


Battery charge: Huawei has the highlight,while iPhone is standing still


As for charging, this time Huawei is outstanding. The 4200mAh battery is equipped with 40W quick charge, and even has 15W wireless quick charge, and even supports reverse wireless charging. Even if the iPhone XS uses PD quick charge, it is still no match for Mate 20 Pro's 40W quick charge.

Taking photos: Huawei really leads the industry in photograph

After talking about the endurance,here comes the highlight of Huawei Mate 20 Pro - taking a picture


Apparently, the Mate 20 Pro has one more lens than the iPhone XS, which is a super-wide-angle lens, and this new addition also supports macro shooting. In addition to the new ultra-wide-angle lens, the Mate 20's three-fold optical zoom lens and the outsized CMOS inherited from the P20 Pro are still there -- 40 million pixels. Now that the iPhone XS is no match for the P20 Pro on the DXO list, the advantage of the Mate 20 Pro, which inherits the P20 Pro and makes a breakthrough, is obviously huge.

Mate 20 Pro not only has the outsole, Mate 20 Pro also has the super HDR function. The effect is similar to the enhanced Super night view mode, which can provide the photos with higher tolerance and brightness.


As the same time,the Mate 20 Pro's zoom capability is also unmatched by the iPhone XS. After all, there are 3 times optical zoom, 5 times hybrid zoom and 10 times digital zoom. This can be seen from the comparison between the P20 Pro and the iPhone XS. I won't go into details here. But this is a really cool thing with a super wide angle and a macro, so let me show you a picture here, can you see this on the iPhone XS?

With such shooting ability, I believe that it is still ok to surpass the iPhone XS. It can be said that Huawei Mate 20 Pro will be overcharged in the DXO chart again this time. In this competition, the iPhone XS is obviously inferior to the Mate 20 Pro.


Price: Huawei has a slightly higher price and performance than iPhone


As for the rest of AR virtual reality, which is higher and which is lower, Huawei and iPhone cannot directly compare with the same function, which will be discussed later.


Than go to a board, price is the key to the iPhone XS price respectively is 64 gb version of 8699 yuan, 256 edition of 11899 yuan, 10099 yuan and 512 gb version by contrast is a Mate 20 Pro price is only 8393 yuan, and considering the Huawei in the domestic price will be lower, compared to the American iPhone XS and national iPhone prices of XS, in terms of price is more cost-effective to Huawei.


In general, the Mate 20 Pro is no match for the iPhone XS, and the choice between the two phones depends on which features you prefer. If I choose:


● Performance - the iPhone XS


● Everything else - Mate 20 Pro


The above is just a personal opinion, I believe you know what to choose.
