The season is stalled, and mobile companies have already presented their top recommendations. No doubt, the two best mobile phones on the market are Huawei Mate 20 Pro and Apple iPhone.
We will not even focus on the number of sensors and megapixels. Huavei made leaps in this area with the camera from Leica and P20 Pro, which was released a few months ago, is at the top of DkOMark, the most active site that tests mobile imaging capabilities.
The site still does not show the result of the Mate 20 Pro, but we see that the Huawei P20 Pro won the top with 109 points, while the iPhone KSS Mak ranked second with 105 points. At the same time, we already know that Mate 20 Pro has improved the features with the new wide-angle lens, as well as the obviously better use of the feature.
Huavei replied that they had not yet shown the device on DkOMark because … I can only. This means they are convinced of the end result of the new device.
From our tests, both mobile (we tested the iPhone KSS instead of Mak, but they have the same camera), we saw that they have great photo capabilities, but the Mate 20 Pro win with its numerous features, and the wide range of new wide-angle lenses. It was still a surprise for us to see that he can create real-time video clips using the new Kirin 980 features to create a mysterious effect … even computers that specialize in editing!
And we have not yet tested the new 3D scan in detail …
2. Charging / autonomy
It is known that the iPhone is not known for its autonomy. Apple insists on putting smaller batteries than usual for flags and despite good energy management, they can hardly make a day of sincere use.
The Huawei Mate 20 Pro comes with a 4200 mAh battery, and the iPhone KSS has a battery of 2658 mAh and iPhone KSS Mak 3174 mAh. The iPhone KSS Mak is slightly better than a simple model despite the use of the 6.5 inches screen, but does not in any way compare the scope of the Mate 20 Pro of 1.5 days of actual use.
But Mate 20 Pro does not stop. Its charging is fast thanks to the new 40V charger that comes in a package, with which you can reach 70% within 30 minutes! Apple does not even have a fast iPhone charger for a package with which Huawei still does not reach speed.
Apple with the charger included in the package manages to fully charge the iPhone KSS within … 3 hours, and for iPhone KSS Mak at about 3.5! However, even with faster chargers, the duration does not fall well below 2 hours.
For the last nail, Huawei offers the first time the Mate 20 Pro rechargeable wireless charging! You can charge Power 20 Pro with other devices that are wirelessly charging … like the iPhone KSS …
3. Dual SIM support
We know that this feature is especially popular in our country and more and more users are looking for it. This year, for the first time, Apple has announced dual SIM support, so that some might highlight it. But things are not that simple.
Apple announced dual SIM support, using a regular micro SIM in collaboration with eSIM. As you can read on the official Apple location, eSIM can be used even if the service is available from the service provider. For now and for the near future, at least one Greek provider should not support this feature, leaving the iPhone for Greece … with the support of one SIM card.
This may even be a decisive factor for buying some devices. Mate 20 Pro supports a hybrid Dual SIM card. It can accept two micro SIM cards simultaneously or micro SIM and a nano memory card. These are the new memory cards launched by Huawei to increase their storage space.
4. Biometric control
Things are quite clear here. Both devices support 3D Face Scan, which in most cases works very well and is very fast on both devices.
But if Apple does not have any other biometric control if it's not convenient, Huawei offers state-of-the-art technology with a fingerprint sensor under the screen. Mate 20 Pro is one of the first devices on the market that has this technology that offers comfort and is positioned in a very convenient position just below the middle of the screen.
This is the technology we will see more often in the future, and Huawei has become available for its leading model, but we do not see it on the new iPhone. This is still expensive technology, which has certainly raised the cost of the device. However, it still did not reach the height of this iPhone. The last point on which we will stand is …
And we arrive at the most basic part: the price at which two devices are available. For the first time, Huawei crosses the 1,000-euro barrier, but it still does not reach the equivalent of a new iPhone. Enchanted offers new technologies such as fingerprint sensors and multiple functions, yet its price remains below the iPhone KSS's value.
In fact, Mate 20 Pro at 6.39 inches with 128GB of storage space is available in our country with a proposed retail price of € 1,049. The closest model with these features is the iPhone KSS Mak on 64GB (with a slightly larger screen of 6.5 inches, but half of the storage space) available at 1,339 euros. The difference is 290 euros and reaches 22% more. Even the cheapest iPhone KSS model (to 5.8 inches with 64GB) has a difference of 180 euros and 15 percent is more expensive.
