Yay, it’s new smartphone season! And since it’s also almost Christmas season, you’ll probably want to buy a new smartphone. What? You’re saying it’s a coincidence? Sure it is.
Anyway, since we both know you’re going to get a new smartphone, let’s take a look at two of the biggest phones on the market right now – the iPhone X and the Huawei P20 – and how they add up. Merry Christmas!
The Huawei P20 has three camera’s. Why? No clue. No one needs three camera’s. It’s a useless feature that could’ve easily shaved 100$ off the price. I know, because I own a (different) phone with 3 camera’s. Half the time I don’t even know which camera is taking the picture. It’s confusing. That said – the iPhone X *also* has three camera’s (it’s a thing now, apparently) but they’re 12MP, 12MP and 7MP for the front cam compared to the Huawei’s 12MP, 20MP and 24MP for the front. Based on the numbers, the Huawei wins this one. If you’re looking for video however, the iPhone can capture higher resolutions in 60 fps and can even record higher fps numbers in HD. I say we call it a tie and you should use this one as tie breaker depending on whether you like pictures or video.

Both share a 5.8” display with 16 million colors (name me 45 and then try to tell me you need more than that, I’ll wait). The iPhone X has a slightly larger screen density however (458 ppi compared to the Huawei’s 429), so we’ll give this to the Apple. Resolution is more important than screen size anyway.

They both look like modern smart phones. Sleek, thin, almost perfectly rectangular. They’re both 7,7mm thick and the iPhone is 9 grams heavier, weighing a massive 174 grams compared to the Huawei’s 165. You can tell there’s literally no difference here, so I won’t even be adding points because you can’t even use this as a tie breaker.
