Huawei P20 Pro Vs Xiaomi Mi MIX 2s
27th of March was one of the busiest days in the smartphone industry. Huawei and Xiaomi launched their flagship smartphones and Apple launched its most affordable iPad. Huawei in total launched three new smartphones. The P20, P20 Pro and the Mate RS Porsche Design. Similarly, Xiaomi launched its flagship Mi MIX 2s. These devices have top of the line specifications with premium build quality. The Huawei P20 Pro and the Xiaomi Mi MIX 2s are those devices, which offers the best camera, best design and best hardware without a premium price tag. However, the 899 Euros price tag of the P20 Pro is much more than the 3299 Yuan (423 Euros) price of the Mi MIX 2s.
The display is one of the most important parts of a smartphone. The Xiaomi Mi MIX 2s has a 5.99 inch IPS LCD screen with FHD+ 2160 x 1080 px resolution. Similarly, the Huawei P20 Pro has a 6.1 inch 2244 x 1080 px OLED display. The OLED display always has an advantage over an IPS LCD display in colour reproduction and offers higher contrast ratio. However, an OLED display is also known for the infamous pixel burn issue, which degrades the quality of the display.
The Xiaomi Mi MIX 2s is powered by the Qualcomm Snapdragon 845 chipset with 6/8GB RAM, which will feature in most of the Android flagship smartphones of 2018. The chipset scores record-breaking benchmark scores and offers a great set of features with latest LTE standards and Bluetooth 5.0. On the other hand, the Huawei P20 Pro has a HiSilicon Kirin 970 Octa-core chipset with 6GB RAM. This is an in-house chipset from Huawei with a dedicated neural engine. When it comes to day to day usage, these chipsets will perform like a pro. However, some of the games might work better on a Qualcomm chipset powered Mi MIX 2s due to better optimisation.
The camera is one more department where these smartphones will excel. The Xiaomi Mi MIX 2s has a dual primary camera setup with a 12MP wide-angle and a 12MP telephoto lens. This camera has AI capabilities with features like bokeh mode, 4K video recording capability. The Huawei P20 Pro has a triple camera setup with a 40MP RGB, 20MP monochrome and an 8MP depth sensor. The smartphone offers 3x optical zoom, 4K video recording and super slow motion 960fps video recording. Due to larger pixel size, the smartphone can capture high-quality photos even in low lighting condition.
