Paying over $800 for a smartphone is becoming a new standard. This category where Apple and Samsung are dominating has a new challenger. The Huawei P30 Pro is finally here and it´s an impressive, feature-packed phone. But how is the Huawei´s flagship holding up against the competitors? Against the best smartphones of 2019 (so far) – Samsung Galaxy S10 Plus, Google Pixel 3 XL, and iPhone XL. Let’s find out which phone is winning the clash of the flagships.
Cameras play a big role these days. Both the Galaxy S10+ and P30 Pro offer five cameras each — Huawei is designed with four cameras at the rear and a single fron cam, while the Samsung is going with three at the back and two up front. On the other hand, the Google has decided to put on Pixel 3 XL only three cameras, one on the front and two on the back. Fortunately, the number of cameras doesn´t matter here, Pixel 3 XL has one of the best cameras you can find on the phone. It is no secret that Apple puts fantastic cameras on its smartphones and the XS follows this tradition. Altrough the iPhone XS comes only with two rear cameras which are on the back, it meets the high expectations.
Moving on from cameras, there are many differences including screen size, processor power, battery life or headphone jack. Here is a closer look at how the different Galaxy S10 Plus, Huawei P30 Pro, iPhone XS, and Pixel 3 XL models compare.
