iPhone XS Max VS Huawei Mate 20 Pro: Which One is Better


It is undeniable that the iPhone XS Max and Huawei Mate 20 Pro are the top works of the mobile phone industry this year, so the discussion about their stubborn and weak topics has not stopped. It happened that I recently got the two mobile phones and experienced it for a while. I’m going to talk to you today. It’s not a matter of who is good or who is bad. I just want to give some advice about your choice. But then again, radish cabbage has its own love, how to choose is still their own thing.

Design & Appearance

The appearance is actually a point that has nothing to say, why? Beauty and ugliness are different from person to person. It doesn’t make sense to say too much.

Nowadays, the full screen is still the vane of the mobile phone industry. Both the iPhone XS Max and the Huawei Mate 20 Pro adopt this design. The iPhone XS Max is equipped with a 6.5-inch screen that works well with surfaces and fillets for visual effects. Huawei Mate 20 Pro uses a 6.39-inch OLED screen with a resolution of 3120×1440. It has excellent color and brightness. It can be used for both look and feel, not to mention the new natural color display function in the system. Adjust the screen color to be consistent.

As far as the screen size is concerned, it seems that the iPhone XS Max is slightly better, but the actual display effect is not significantly different. Because the Huawei Mate 20 Pro uses a curved screen design, I prefer the overall look and feel. The latter, the compact design brings a higher screen ratio. After all, the iPhone XS Max is almost the same as last year’s 8P. For a small person, it is a little hard to master with one hand.

With the mobile phone turning over, the iPhone XS Max and the Huawei Mate 20 Pro can be said to have their own unique features, both in terms of design layout and material usage. Needless to say, iPhone XS Max, the classic combination of glass and metal, but if contaminated with fingerprints will definitely affect the look and feel of the whole phone. This sleek and sleek version of the Huawei Mate 20 Pro uses a micron -scale yellow etch process. When it is at different angles of light, the unique texture design presents a delicate silky touch and a delicate feather look. With a strong visual impact, these three-dimensional depth textures also provide anti-fingerprint and anti-sweat effects.

In terms of details, the iPhone XS Max has not changed much, and the design has been deeply rooted in the hearts of the people. There is nothing to say. In contrast, Huawei Mate 20 Pro not only brings a new color but also the back camera design is called the matrix multi-focal image system, inspired by the “super-running eye”, this design can be said to be unprecedented.

The appearance is just a chat, whether you like it or not depends on yourself, like the love you can’t put it down, don’t like it, and say it is useless. One is the classic heritage, one is the combination of technology and humanity, which is your favorite?

The iPhone XS Max and the Huawei Mate 20 Pro are taking two different roads, so the hard power may be the beginning of a real contest between the two sides. What function does it start with? Still take a photo, after all, this feature is now highly valued.

Before the start of the contest, we still have to go through the parameters first and write a book. The iPhone XS Max adds the “Smart HDR” feature. Now as long as we pick up the phone and take a photo, the phone can automatically take multiple photos in the background at the same time, using multiple compositing, leaving the best part of each photo, which will result in a higher dynamic range and better details.


To say that the Huawei Mate 20 Pro highlights, the world’s first 7nm process chip – Kirin 980 is certainly one of them, compared to the 10nm process density increased by 1.6 times. The breakthrough in process technology has brought about a significant increase in performance and energy efficiency. Big industry-leading dual-core NPU design, the new CPU + GPU lineup, let Kirin 980 known as the new generation of artificial outstanding smart phone chips. The Kirin 980 brings greater performance and AI capabilities to the Huawei Mate 20 Series, resulting in higher computing efficiency.

The iPhone XS Max is powered by the latest A12 biochip, which is also the world’s first mass-produced 7-nanometer chip with a strong performance. A12 Bionics’ biggest improvement is in terms of ISP performance and new neural network engine. The new iPhone XS Max can achieve functions such as intelligent HDR and late depth of field adjustment, all thanks to this powerful A12 biochip. Its significance is self-evident.

To say that Kirin 980 and A12 are stronger, this is really not easy to draw conclusions, than running points, can break through the 300,000 marks, than smooth, A12 needless to say, has always been the first-class smooth, and The Kirin 980 has a qualitative improvement, and the fluency is unquestionable. It is really difficult for me to speak out in a language. Who is better, fluency sometimes even if it is a fraction of a second, can you really understand it?

As for the system, this year’s iOS 12 did not add a lot of new features but focused on improving the user experience in the details, especially the scenes that can improve the user experience, such as the speed of the app. But Apple brought us a brand new app called “Shortcut.” The official has built a number of new shortcuts in the shortcut library to help you get started. In addition, now we can also use Siri to run shortcuts, directly into a language, mobile phones can automatically run shortcuts, greatly improving efficiency.


Huawei’s mobile phone camera has always been at the forefront of DxO. The Huawei Mate 20 Pro is equipped with a 40-megapixel wide-angle lens + a 20-megapixel ultra-wide-angle lens + an 8-megapixel telephoto lens. In addition to the more excellent camera capabilities, it also brings “Super Wide + Super” and “Super Slow Motion” photography experience; thanks to the dual-core NPU, Huawei Mate 20 Pro has made great strides from the AI ?? photo era. The AI video era. Covering the “multi-focal section” of one machine and three lenses, there is a sense of the world.

From the above proofs, the iPhone XS Max is still a clear-cut route. Sometimes the stability of color performance is still lacking, but the details are very good and the view is outstanding. Huawei Mate 20 Pro is more full-bodied and can please the eyes of users.

It is worth mentioning that the Huawei Mate 20 Pro auto-recognition opens the “super wide-angle” mode. Compared to the normal mode, it can cover more pictures at once. When we zoom in to the limit, the phone automatically recognizes and adjusts to Super Macro mode. The 20 megapixels ultra-wide-angle Leica lens brings the industry’s first macro-photographing effect to a focal length of 2.5 cm.

User Interface

Huawei Mate 20 Pro is equipped with EMUI 9.0 system. Starting from the bottom of Android, users will click on the screen icon, when the application starts, and when the user operates the mobile phone, the response speed and smoothness will be improved. And based on the new features of EMUI 9.0, Huawei Mate 20 series has also been specially optimized in the game: a new generation of AI smart engine + AI graphics drawing, playing games farewell to Caton.

The addition of AI is also the highlight of Huawei Mate 20 Pro. AI calorie recognition can identify the volume of calories in hundreds of foods. It is very convenient for people who are concerned about diet health and exercise. AI accompanying translation supports translation in ten languages? and is in a foreign country. When users align their signs, menus, posters, etc. with their mobile phones, they will gain real-time AR translation experience.

iOS 12 has not changed much, and it is more than enough for daily use. There is no problem at all levels of use. EMUI 9.0 is obviously more functional, and the addition of AI makes it even more powerful, enhancing the user experience and enriching life. Personally, I prefer EMUI 9.0. It’s a good thing to do more. When you get the time, “the function is time to hate late.”

The biggest change in the new iPhone is the addition of dual card dual standby, which is almost identical to most domestic mobile phones. In the setup interface, we can choose the cellular mobile data card and the default voice number card. However, the current default SMS interface can only use the main card to send text messages, and the interface for receiving text messages will not display the card from the card. At present, Apple has a lot of room for improvement in dual SIM cards. Including dual 4G, dual VoLTE calls, etc., are currently not implemented on this iPhone XS Max.

In this regard, Huawei’s Mate 20 Pro advantage is still quite large, after all, Huawei’s communication technology is the top of the existence. Based on the Kirin 980, Huawei Mate 20 Pro has achieved dual-card dual 4G dual VoLTE in a breakthrough manner, that is, two SIM cards remain connected at the same time. When the card 1 calls, it will not affect the incoming call or data traffic of the card 2. In addition, Huawei Mate 20 Pro also avoids a pain point that often occurs on mobile phones: when a card 1 calls, it misses the incoming call of card 2.


Finally, let’s talk about battery life. After all, this is one of the pain points for users to use their mobile phones. The iPhone ‘s battery life has always been a general performance, although there are now fast charge programs, also need to spend money to buy. In contrast, Huawei Mate 20 Pro not only has 40W super fast charge and car full scene fast charge, but its 4200mAh large capacity battery can also even achieve wireless reverse charging.

Huawei Mate 20 Pro has been upgraded from the previous generation of 4.5V/5A to 10V/4A, while the car charger and charging treasure have also achieved 10V/4A, the voltage and current conversion loss are smaller, the efficiency is higher, the charging speed is increased by 30%, 30 minutes. Charge about 70%. Thanks to the battery capacity are not discounted, Huawei Mate 20 Pro avoids the industry’s common problems of fast charging but short life.

In terms of final price, the iPhone XS Max broke through the million marks, the 512G emperor version was as high as 12,799 yuan ($1837.62), and the Huawei Mate 20 Pro 256G version was only 6,799 yuan ($976.17), which can be said to be very conscience.


In fact, this article is not really stronger than who is out, as mentioned above, radish cabbage has their own love, how to choose to see individuals. Personally, I prefer this year’s Huawei Mate 20 Pro, although I used to be a fruit powder.

Why? The iPhone is really less and less innovative. Although this year’s XS Max has launched a dual-card, it really can save the trend. This feature has been popularized in China for a long time. It is undeniable that on the iPhone XS Max, I saw Apple’s sincerity in the Chinese market and the exploration of its future direction. The AI ?? tide is coming, the A12 bionic chip can only be said to be excellent. With the newly upgraded ISP, the iPhone XS Max also has a brand new intelligent HDR technology for taking pictures, and that’s it.

The Huawei Mate 20 Pro is the ultimate design process, the powerful Kirin 980, or the new generation of Leica three shots. These features are fully integrated beyond the 1+1=2 category. This year’s AI tide hit, Huawei integrated AI into every corner of the mobile phone, and actually landed in all aspects of user life.

The same as the high-end flagship phone, compared to the iPhone XS Max, Huawei Mate 20 Pro is more stable.
