Huawei Mate 20 Pro vs. iPhone XS

iPhone XS

Today we want to compare two powerful devices, these are the flagships on the smartphone market in recent years. One with Android, the other has iOS. Which one will be better in this list? We will try to focus on this and think about what equipment is worth reaching for.


On the Apple side, we get the aesthetics we know. Subtle, nicely presented construction. In almost all colour versions, the smartphone presents itself nicely. Side frames emphasize the construction, if you can attach yourself to something here, it is to the outgoing camera, but there is no secret that the striped glass looks very nice. What attracts attention is the camera, whose parts are arranged in such a way that the border forms a square. Both devices look nicer, but it seems that Huawei offers something more, we get a sense of something new and that's why we can talk here about the advantage of this equipment over the iPhone.


This year's Apple device received an OLED display. It has 5.85 inches and a resolution of 1125 x 2436 pixels. This gives a total of 459 pixels per inch. While Huawei has a larger screen of 6.39 inches and a resolution of 1440 x 3120 pixels which gives 538 pixels per inch. Theoretically it looks better in numbers, but in general it can be said that both displays have a great appearance. The winner, however, is the iPhone because there will be voices that Huawei equipment has problems with some copies.


In the Chinese device operates Kirin 980 with eight cores and 6 GB of RAM. For user files we have 128 or 256 GB. Its competitor has an original Bionic A12 processor and has 4 GB of RAM. There are three variants when it comes to the capacity of 64, 256 and 512 GB of memory for applications. In synthetic tests, the Huwaei device is second to none. However, when it comes to benchmarks, the Apple device performs better, which means that it won't age for a long time and will fill up with great performance during operation. Therefore, here we can put a sign of equality between these devices.

Comparison of smartphones


This is a very difficult comparison because, as we know, Huawei experiments with the photographic capabilities of the equipment. This is also confirmed by the Mate 20 Pro. This is a triple camera: 40, 20 and 8 megapixels with apertures of f/1.8, f/2.2 and f/2.4 respectively). The Apple device has two 12 MP lenses with f/1.8 and f/2.4 apertures. Both devices are of the highest quality at this angle and are able to create really great-looking photographs for us. Hardware has a slightly better HDR than Apple, while Huawei provides us with the ability to create a wide-angle photo.


Huawei Mate 20 Pro is equipped with a 4200 mAh battery and the competitor has only 2659 mAh. This does not mean that the differences between the two devices will be drastic. iPhone XS works for one and a half days and the device for Huawei 2 days. Of course, this is why we put the equipment from China higher here.

Communication and other elements

Both smartphones are IP68 certified and have NFC and Bluetooth 5.0 modules. Unfortunately, the devices do not have a jack connector. So we won't connect corded headphones, or at least it's not easy. Huawei also offers us something really interesting, namely a built-in fingerprint reader. It's really an innovation that makes this equipment stand out from the crowd.


The device is undoubtedly great. Sure, it's the top shelf. However, this does not change the fact that the new device from China is a big leap in quality and this makes this equipment simply put on something completely new on the market. Thus, it can be placed higher than Apple, where only the already created technical solutions are developed. The fact that Apple does not take any risks and does not develop new options makes us put Chinese equipment higher in this test.
