Yeah, the reason that anyone would have a serious issue comparing these two models would be because they look similar. From design to features, recently released Honor 20 Pro and Huawei P30 Pro that came out earlier this year, you will notice a lot of similarities.
Which brings us to a very important question: which one is more worth it?
Between the two, you don’t have to feel like you’re supporting Honor more than Huawei because they are the same company. So, there’s that.
Design-wise, both models don’t necessarily differ that much and you will see this phrase a lot. Both has striking, vibrant colors with Honor going for the darker shades while Huawei P30 Pro, a more vibrant sky blue color. Both has their front camera interrupting the display.
Honor 20 Pro has a punch-hole while Huawei P30 Pro has a droplet camera. Well, the most prominent difference would be the fact that P30 Pro has edge screen, while Honor doesn’t.
Display quality has its clear winner: Huawei P30 Pro. With OLED screen, the LCD screen that Honor 20 Pro has pales in comparison. It lacks that punch look on the screen, the colors doesn’t have the vibrancy they have on Huawei P30 Pro and guess what. I’m a sucker for AMOLED, so OLED will barely suffice.
Camera. This is a little tricky because some people find Huawei P30 Pro to be performing better than Honor 20 Pro. On the other hand, it’s expected that Huawei performs better in terms of camera quality compared to Honor.
Both are equipped with quad-camera gear, but Honor 20 Pro has 48-megapixel for main, a 16-megapixel super wide-angle lens, an 8-megapixel telephoto lens and a 4-megapixel macro lens that takes crisp pictures from 4 cm range.
Meanwhile, Huawei P30 Pro is only lacking behind a bit with its main 40-megapixel and 20-megapixel wide-angle lenses but supports up to 50x zoom. Huawei P30 Pro has the same telephoto lens with Honor 20 Pro but with f/3.4 aperture.
It’s like you are fully equipped to become a good amateur photographer with this phone. The front camera for both models is 32 megapixel with f/2.0.
Performance. Both models have Kirin 980 processor in them, a model equal to Snapdragon 855. Both models also run with 8 GB of RAM. It’s safe to say that both models will perform very well with games like Fortnite.
Battery life. Honor is known for their lasting battery life and they have not disappointed with this model either. With 4,000 mAh and fast-charging, you get the longest screen-on time with Honor 20 Pro. Huawei P30 Pro has 4,200 mAh, but Huawei has faster charging time.
Honor 20 Pro has an LCD screen that takes up less energy and P30 Pro has slightly bigger with a brighter and more vibrant screen. Both runs on the same processor which give the two models similar battery life.
The last and hardest thing to judge would be price because the price of Honor 20 Pro isn’t out, yet. But we do predict that it might arrive at $600~ish, which isn’t bad for a phone of that superb quality. Both models feature some great specs with Huawei P30 Pro clearly winning in some aspects.
If you are on a tighter budget, Honor 20 Pro sounds great, but if you could spare more for a little more luxury to your device, the P30 Pro is definitely the go-to.
