Huawei has always spared no effort in the design of flagship mobile phones. This time, Huawei’s Mate 20 Pro is full of cutting-edge technology. The same is the new flagship in the second half of the year, how about Apple’s iPhone XS 8699 yuan ($1252.83) and Huawei Mate 20 Pro 5399 yuan ($777.56) I think everyone is looking forward to it.
This issue of “Point Phone Showdown” will compare the two flagship phones in terms of appearance, camera, and performance, so that everyone can have a deeper understanding of these two phones.
From the appearance point of view, Huawei Mate 20 Pro and iPhone XS are both designed with Notch’s front and are equipped with 3D structured optical modules, but Huawei’s Mate 20 Pro’s bangs width is narrower than iPhone XS.
Not only the notch but also the left and right screen borders are quite different. The left and right borders of Huawei Mate 20 Pro are only 2.1mm. The screen also uses a curved screen design. The two mobile phones are put together and the left and right sides of the iPhone XS are obviously wider.
The most direct experience brought by 3D structured light is that the face unlocks the mobile phone, but the Huawei Mate 20 Pro can also be used for 3D modeling and can make the built model move. It seems that we are getting more and more from the AR world. Nearly.
Infrared remote control has always been a feature of domestic mobile phones. Huawei Mate 20 Pro retains an infrared remote control at the top of the phone. Compared to the iPhone XS, the top looks simple, but the practical infrared remote control function is missing.
At the bottom of the phone, the iPhone XS breaks the previous symmetrical design, adding an antenna to make up the mobile phone signal; Huawei Mate 20 Pro hides the external speakers in the Type-C in order to reduce the fuselage opening and appearance. In the data port, the free space is used to design the SIM card slot.
In the left and right sides of the phone, Huawei Mate 20 Pro’s design is more concise, only the right side of the border has a volume button and power button, the red button of the power button is also very distinctive.
The left and right borders of the iPhone XS are somewhat old-fashioned. The right side comes standard with a power button and a SIM card slot. The left side retains a convenient mute button. The volume up and down buttons are also designed separately. It seems that the Huawei Mate 20 Pro is clean. The left border is more integrated.
On the rear camera arrangement, the Huawei Mate 20 Pro draws inspiration from the Porsche 919’s headlights. Not only do the three cameras and flashes line up, but also the combination of a mobile phone eye and a super-running eye; iPhone XS camera The flash and the flash are arranged in a conventional upper, middle and lower arrangement without a new arrangement.
In terms of design, Huawei Mate 20 Pro’s various designs are at the forefront of innovation. The narrow border curved screen brings a visual and tactile experience. The hidden speakers make the body more compact and beautiful, while the iPhone XS has no design. Highlights can be said.
This time, the Huawei Mate 20 Pro is once again equipped with a Leica-certified three-camera, 40-megapixel wide-angle + 20-megapixel ultra-wide-angle + 8 megapixel telephoto three-shot combination, which can fully meet the daily photo needs, iPhone XS dual The camera still uses a dual-camera combination of 12MP wide angle + 12MP telephoto, but the 1.4µm sensor is still commendable.
Let’s take a look at the sample comparison of the two phones:
Through proofs, you can see that the sample color produced by Huawei Mate 20 Pro is warmer, meets the sunny scene, and the white balance is more accurate. Thanks to the three-camera blessing, the details of the photos taken are more abundant.
The sample taken by the iPhone XS is cold, and the exposure of the dark part of the photo is insufficient. Although the dual-camera effect of the iPhone XS is at the forefront of the current mobile phone, the overall camera capability is still inferior to that of the Huawei Mate 20 Pro.
EMUI 9.0 eats smooth Android Pie
System, Huawei Mate 20 Pro is the latest EMUI 9.0.0, based on Android 9.0 depth optimization, the latest Android bottom layer is more concise, daily use and games are smooth while adding full-screen operation gestures, without the need for traditional three navigation The keys also operate the phone smoothly.
Apple mobile phone is of course iOS, iPhone XS iOS 12 compared to the previous generation iOS 11 optimized a lot of details, smarter than the previous generation, can be displayed in the album classification, can automatically classify photos according to location, event, etc., will The photos are highlighted and combined into a new album.
For Android and iOS, the two systems have already become two camps. Both systems have their own characteristics. Compared with iOS, the openness of Android is also the reason why more users like it. It can be used more freely. In short, because the system chooses the mobile phone, it can be said that “the radish cabbage has its own love.”
The performance of the two mobile phones does not have to worry, Huawei Mate 20 Pro uses Huawei’s first 7nm process Kirin 980 processor, based on the Cortes-A76 architecture design, the performance, and energy efficiency of the previous generation is significantly improved, the dual-core NPU, even the Kirin The 980’s AI performance burst and the concurrent processing power is stronger.
The A12 processor of the iPhone XS also uses the 7nm process and is equipped with a neural network engine to make up for the lack of the A11 processor in terms of GPU performance, AI computing power and machine learning.
Through game testing, Huawei Mate 20 Pro and iPhone XS can maintain high frame rate in games, but Huawei Mate 20 Pro’s GPU Turbo 2.0 can better optimize software hardware, and keep the frame rate stable for a long time. The iPhone XS will fluctuate slightly over a long game frame rate.
After talking about the performance, I have to say the endurance ability. After half an hour of charging test, the Huawei Mate 20 Pro with a 4200mAh battery reaches 75%. It seems that the 40W super fast charge is quite powerful.
iPhone XS only charges 25% of the battery in half an hour and has direct contact with the 5W charger. The charging power is not as high as the 15W wireless charging power of Huawei Mate 20 Pro. The 40W fast charging of Huawei Mate 20 Pro has absolute The advantage of wireless fast charge is also the strength to crush iPhone XS.
Not only the charging speed but also the Huawei Mate 20 Pro has an absolute advantage. The 4200mAh battery can meet the heavy use of the day. After 5 hours of battery life test, the remaining battery capacity is 44%, so the charging speed and battery life are perfect. balance. The iPhone XS’s 2658mAh battery is clearly in a disadvantaged position, with only 34% remaining.
Huawei’s mobile phone innovation has always been at the forefront of the industry. This time, it has brought us Huawei’s mobile phone, and even the entire mobile phone industry’s innovative height, not only has a narrow-framed screen, but also a dual NPU processor, 40W super fast. Charge and 15W wireless charging are also at the forefront of the industry.
Apple, which has always relied on innovation, has obviously lacked its strength. Not only has the design not been innovative, but the charging speed has just been stagnant, and it has been using 5W charging power.
