The Apple iPhone X is undeniably a device that has set many design aesthetics. After all, the notch was born on the iPhone, and so was the vertical placement of the rear camera unit. It is certainly a performance powerhouse with the latest Apple A11 Bionic SoC. Users have already lauded the camera performance and the wireless charging through the stunning glass back.
Apple iPhone users have nothing much to complain about the latest smartphone. However, the Huawei P20 Pro is an astounding smartphone that has quite a few features that beat the Apple iPhone X. If buyers, who want nothing the best, and are willing to consider Google’s Android, here are top five features that Huawei P20 Pro packs but the Apple iPhone X lacks.
Huawei P20 Pro Vs. Apple iPhone X: Camera
Apple’s iPhone X still has one of the best smartphone camera setups on the market today. But Google’s Pixel 2 and Pixel 2 XL have vastly improved camera units. The difference lies primarily in the optimum usage of Google’s brilliant algorithms that beautifully compile amazing shots even under mundane conditions.
Apple iPhone X packs a pair of 12-megapixel shooters. The sensors boast of wide-angle at f/1.8 and telephoto at f/2.4. Both have optical image stabilization. In the real world, the camera offers beautifully saturated colors, excellent dynamic range, and plenty of detail.
But when Android’s ever-evolving software, meets powerful camera specifications, the results can be amazing. Moreover, the Huawei P20 Pro packs not two but three lenses. The Android smartphone has a 40MP main RGB camera, paired with an 8MP telephoto lens and 20MP black-and-white one. The trio also offers 5x hybrid zoom (or 3x optical zoom). Needless to mention, with these specifications, the photos pack a lot of detail and turn out astounding. The smartphone is also able to offer some of the best nighttime shots and videos.
Huawei P20 Pro even tops Apple iPhone X in the front camera. While iPhone X has a rather humble 7MP unit, the P20 pro packs a whopping 24MP unit, which can take some stunning selfies and self-portraits. Interestingly, Apple may adopt the triple-camera setup in the near future.
Huawei P20 Pro Vs. Apple iPhone X: RAM and Internal Memory
Apple’s smartphones have never been sluggish in performance. In fact, the iOS is commonly accepted to be more polished, smoother and faster than Android. Perhaps due to the optimization, Apple iPhone X packs 3GB RAM. But Huawei P20 Pro doubles the amount of memory available for the functioning of the Android OS, apps, and games. The smartphone packs 6GB of RAM, which needless to say, is ample. And with the GPU Turbo feature, the smartphone could even become a force to reckon with.
The Huawei P20 Pro’s base variant gets 128GB of internal memory, but that of the iPhone X packs only 64GB. Since both do not offer memory expansion, even the base version of P20 Pro offers double the amount of internal memory. Apple does offer a 256GB variant, but as expected, it comes at a rather high cost.
Huawei P20 Pro Vs. Apple iPhone X: Battery
With any smartphone, the bigger the battery, the better it is. The screen, software, apps and the processor do impact battery consumption. However, a larger battery pack is always a very desirable trait in a smartphone.
Apple iPhone X packs a 2,716mAh battery. Although it is by no means small and can allow prolonged usage, it is no match to the 4,000mAh battery pack that Huawei P20 Pro packs. Since both the devices have AMOLED displays, it is quite likely with equal usage; the P20 Pro will outlast the iPhone X by a sizeable margin.
Huawei P20 Pro Vs. Apple iPhone X: Screen Size
Both the smartphones have AMOLED panels. Moreover, both the devices have rather large screens as well. However, the iPhone X has a slightly smaller and in consequence, a little wider display than the P20 Pro.
Apple iPhone X has a 5.8-inch display with a 1125p resolution. The P20 Pro, on the other hand, has a 1080p, 6.1-inch display. Hence the latter’s display looks a little taller.
Huawei P20 Pro Vs. Apple iPhone X: Cellular Connectivity
Apple iPhones have never ever offered dual-SIM capability. The situation, however, could change soon with the launch of the next generation of the smartphones. One of the biggest advantages of Android smartphones is they have always been the ability to offer dual-SIM support.
While the Apple iPhone X lacks dual-SIM support, the Huawei P20 Pro does accommodate two SIMs. This makes management of calls and data connectivity simpler and cheaper.
Incidentally, Apple has taken a note of the same and may offer an interesting alternative. But for the time being, the Huawei P20 Pro does have a significant advantage over the Apple iPhone X.
