Huawei Mate 20 Pro vs. Huawei P20 Pro: Which is the better?

November 22, 2018

Huawei is making the buying decision pretty difficult for flagship smartphone connoisseurs in 2018 and its Mate 20 Pro looks as if it’s set to continue that trend into 2019.

Huawei’s Mate 20 Pro looks similar to the P20 Pro, but there are for more changes than you might expect. So which is the best device? Below we have made some comparison to make your life easier.


Huawei Mate 20 Pro and the Huawei P20 Pro boast minimalist and sleek designs. Instead of the usual fingerprint scanner at the bottom of the screen, Huawei Mate 20 Pro has integrated it into the screen instead.

By incorporating the fingerprint scanner into the screen, there’s no wasted space at the bottom of the phone; therefore, it makes the device looks more refined. The Mate 20 Pro also has a slightly more curvy back, so it’s more comfortable to hold.


Huawei Mate 20 Pro features a 6.39-inch display, whereas the P20 Pro has a 6.1-inch screen. Both devices offer a razor-sharp Full HD+ display resolution, which is plenty of pixels whether you’re streaming Netflix or movies from Amazon Prime.

The Pro 20’s 1080p display was very nice, but the Mate 20 Pro’s display improves on that. Therefore, the Mate 20 Pro is definitely the better bet here.

No doubt about it, the Mate 20 Pro is more speedy, it features Huawei’s brand new Kirin 980 chip, which uses the new 7nm production process. It has a pair of neutral processing units and is big on A.I. capabilities.

The P20 Pro features the Kirin 970. The Kirin 980 chip is right up at the top in the Android space.


The Huawei Mate 20 Pro offers a 40MP lens, an 8MP telephoto lens on the rear, and an ultra-wide angle 20MP lens. The triple-lens setup is one of the unique features of the Mate 20 Pro. You can take professional photos, and it works for close-up shots as well.

Huawei P20 Pro offers a similar camera with a 40MP lens, a 20MP monochrome lens, and 8MP telephoto lens.


We thought the Huawei P20 was packed with perks, but the Mate 20 Pro takes it to a whole new level. It has a bigger screen, better display, a faster chip and a more flexible triple-lens camera setup than the P20 Pro.
