Xiaomi Mi 8 Pro vs Huawei P20 Pro vs Mate 20 Pro

hello just peeps as christmas expert i’m here with this yummy meat it prom on the first smartphones from your army to launch here in the UK been use it it’s my full-time handset for a few days now and i’m really liking it gonna do side by side now with with two of while ways best smartphones from 20-year team got the p20 bra here in the middle and the my team it when he brought here on the right see how they stack up for hardware software everything you need to know and don’t forget from on the latest and greatest mobile a tech to give that subscribe button a little tickle and bring that notifications balance Cheers so first up when you do line them up but like saw the casual observer might sort of struggle to work out which one is which they all have a display which pretty much fills that the front of the phone and of course the obligatory bit of not check action up top in fact a smartphone which really stands out is the p20 pro is that has quite a fat lip

compared with the other two handsets here that’s actually got a built-in fingerprint sensor there of course the mid-20 prague deftly wins when it comes to skinny bezels as you can see they’re pretty much nor bezel down below so that screen does almost fill the entire front of the phone as here on the jar me me at port it’s still a fairly chunky bottom bezel but nothing too obscene all three of these smartphones do support a glass back in but in a very different style because the petering the mid-20 come up in a couple of different finishes but we love the gradient style hues as you can see here where you actually get the color change from the top down towards the bottom looks absolutely stunning in comparison the me–it pro goes from very different stars you can see it’s actually got a transparent glass case and doesn’t see there you can actually make out all of the internal bits including the battery the Snapdragon chipset with an icepick Qualcomm Brandon there the memory and everything is very funky because as you can probably make out they’re all three of these smartphones do and forge the pic greasy prints and scuff marks and roll that easily so you’ll definitely want to give them a bit of a buffing to keep them nice and clean that’s what they’re all pretty rugged as well as you can see there no

scratches or scuffs to speak of when it comes to water resistance though you don’t get any kind of IP written here on the meet it poor the p20 poor is ip67 water and dust resistant and the mid-20 pro ever so slightly better ip68 that means it’s bit see the waveforms you can drop them in the bath in a toilet anything like that and they should survive absolutely fine we definitely recommend not doing the same with the Jeremy and it’s also worth pointed out quickly that none of these phones have a 3.5 millimeter headphone jack either so you’ll have to use a type C dangal if you want to use wired phones so what about the splitter tech well it’s an all that panel on all three of these smartphones they all support a stretched aspect ratio as well the biggest panel is over here on the right Samir 24 with 6.3 nine inch OLED the piggy in the middle is the me it pro with a six point two one inch and then the p20 port is the most compact here with a 6.1 inch er the kids for me eared pro and the p20 por you get a full HD plus resolution bezels actually boosted for the mate 20 pro 2 a quad HD plus resolution so if you do a side-by-side comparison like this look really close at some of the finer details you can make out a little bit more here on the mid-20 pro of course because the me it put on the p2000 have slightly smaller displays

the differences are very very subtle indeed basically off to you’re absolutely fine for viewing back for doors watching movies you’ll get a nice crisp playback and i definitely struggling to make out any differences in terms of the color reproduction here as well some of the hues on the mid-20 pro such as this pinky color here they do seem to be slightly more vibrant but because all three or all their panels you get a nice punchy color reproduction on all of them anyway no issues with brightness or anything like that either although the Xiaomi me it pro deftly seems to impress more than the other two here because it goes up to a mighty 600 MIT of brightness as the other two can’t quite match that sort of level if you see there you know there’s yummy meat product that little bit more icier in and you can customize the display output as well if you dive it into the settings and all three of these phones you do of course get the usual reads and modes and night modes and all that kind of shenanigans so you can change the color temperature based on the time or the ambient temperature things like that and you’ve also got some manual control over that shenanigans as well as you can see you can change the color temperature to make it colder or warmer here in the the me it pro you can actually change the contrast level as well optimizing it for the available ambient light or actually just

boost in at full time anyway I was on the wall ways you can actually change the color but make it more vivid as it is by default or you can just scale it back from all realistic hues good news if you don’t particularly like the notch up top as well because all three these phones allow you to hide it away just quick tap like so and or Flickr this switch and as you can see that notch is now hidden from view with a nice black bar because one of the major differences between these three phones is the software it’s runnin you do get a bit of Android in all three cases I think it’s the MIT 20 pro it’s actually running the latest version of Android Android Pi here on the beat when you pull it’s still Android Oriol but it should be getting an update to PI imminently and it’s still Android re all here on the xiaomi it pro as well then all three phones have their own overlay slapped there on top of android courtesy of the manufacturers so while it has partner it’s all emotion UI or a mui here on the p20 pro it’s still version it of a mui as for the latest version 9 here on the mid-20 pro but again the people should be getting an update to version 9 for the time being until that update happens there are a couple of subtle differences but it’s basically the same experience on these two phones as here on the shall meet me at port you get the me UI or mui as i

like to call it and that’s version 9.6 now the overall sort of look and feel of these smartphones is basically the same it’s all clearly Android however Huawei has given you the option of though these two bring them back the apps drawer with the mue launcher which is something that you can’t get unfortunately with a default launcher here on the show me Mia poor you will have to install your very odd launcher the p20 in the mid-20 poor of course if you swipe right you’ve got access to your sort of Google News stream here in the case of the show me me it put a few flip right you’ve got the app fault instead this is very similar to the oxygen OS shell found on the oneplus ones where gives you fast access to your favorite apps you can customize it to add in your own widgets things like that although these photos are of course quite difficult to handle with one mitt as they’re all a bit on the large side but thankfully there is some 100 health all you need to do is swipe across that navigation documenting the sea just minimizes everything down you can do that here on the p20 pro and the mid-20 pro as well now there is one other major difference between these three

smartphones and that is the fact that you actually get facial recognition here on the p20 pro and the mid-20 for something that’s not currently available on the xiaomi it pro a partly facial recognition will be coming to the me it pro at some point but it’s not been confirmed which countries will be getting it all when so as you see with the peaks when you put them it when you pour you can literally lift them they’ll turn on recognize your face and you’ll be straight into your smartphones it’s very very quick and very reliable even in low-light works a treat here on the p20 pro you do of course also get that built-in fingerprint sensor which is super super nippy the kids yummy meat poor and the one we made 24 it’s actually a fingerprint sensor built into the display itself what you need to do is just basically press your thumb against that sensor so a reasonable pressure and as you can see reasonably quick unlock they’re not 100% accurate not quite as accurate as the separate sensors that you get on the lights the p20 Pro but they

generally do the job and there’s no denying it is rather cool but it’s always good to have that facial recognition on hand as well I actually prefer that to the fingerprint sensors now running the show you have a very different chipset on all three of these smartphones they’re always smartphones they of course you’ve always only Kiran chipset since the older 970 here on the p20 ProRes that’s updated so they cure ninety eighty this year’s chipset here on the MIT when he put meanwhile the Xiaomi me it Paul goes with Qualcomm’s mighty Snapdragon it 4/5 chipset and while the way smartphones have six gigs around you get a massive ear gigs packed into the xiaomi phone if you’re bitten for benchmark and fan there’s no real surprises here was a little bit surprised at first how well the killer 980 benchmarked as you can see it’s clearly beats the snapdragon it 4/5 and both the single and multi-core scores i mean while of course the older p20 pro languishes in third place but that said still get a nippy everyday performance from all three of these smartphones they all load up your apps as quick as anything not hanging around just quick tap of the apps as you

can see straight on the screen and of course when you want to play it a nice bit of pub g or something like that all three of these smartphones again absolutely no worries even though the p20 pro all plays it on top detail levels with a nice smooth frame rate that’s helped along of course by the GPU turbot update which worried it throughout this year it gives you a nice consistent frame rate while you’re gaming that’s for the battery life the Huawei smartphones slightly habit for us they’ve got a bigger capacity cell so it’s a 4000 milliampere on the p20 Paul that’s been boosted to a 4200 milliampere on the mid-20 pro but even though the Xiaomi packs a smaller 3000 milliamp cell it still definitely does itself proud I easily make it to a full day even with pretty intensive use it’s just if you’re gonna be absolutely kin and a device with a lot of game and a lot of sky packs and things like that you’re probably gonna want to look to the Huawei’s instead just for that more dependable bigger capacity cell you get a phone with quick charge and all three phones as well oddly yummy me it Provost a bit of quick charge for plus from Qualcomm and you’ve got worries on super charge here on the p20 crawl and Amit when he brought so the mid-20 poet actually bought sat wireless charge and support as well and you can even

do wireless reverse charging which allows you to charge another wireless charging smartphone using the mid-20 pro as a wireless charging pad it actually works it’s pretty cool and if you dive on into the storage just so you get plenty of space packed unto all three handsets 128 gigs as standards are those are sadly no support for the micro SD memory cards now it’s time for everyone’s favorite part of the show its smartphone camera comparisons I’m her a young Mimi at port immediately appears to be at a disadvantage because it’s only got a dual lens camera you get a 12 megapixel primary lens with F 1.8 aperture that’s backed by a secondary also 12 megapixel lens this time with an F 2.4 aperture you do get a 2 times optical zoom however as well and a bit of optical image stabilization as well just to help you get some nice crisp shots even when it’s kind of low light and of course your hand can be judgement about the place however the Huawei phones both boast a try lens camera and what you might think the setup is actually the same on both smartphones it’s actually very very different both of them support a 40 megapixel primary lens F 1.8 here on the older P 20 Paul that’s got a secondary 20 mega pixel monochrome lens it’s F 1.6 very strong in those low-light conditions that’s actually been switched up for the mate 20 pour

that secondary lens is actually an ultra wide-angle 20 megapixel lens full RGB noir monochrome and in both of these smartphones you get it megapixel telephoto lens in addition that’s got optical image stabilization built in and it gives you a three times optical zoom to yet even crisper shot than you can on the gr me when it’s a far away subject we don’t run into the camera ops you’ll see the setup is pretty different although obviously quite similar here on the p20 put on the mid-20 pause they rock the sim while we’re camera they all have a form of a I’m Elizabeth II just an auto of Scene Recognition helps to give you some really nice looking photos with minimal effort on your part Huawei has of course called it the master AI here on the p20 pro and the mid-20 pro you can’t deactivate it on all three smartphones at any point if you don’t want that in play and you can then manually tweak the output yourself too much whatever your expectations are so our more realistic colors vivid hues things like that and if you really know what you’re doing thankfully awfully smart phones also boast a form of pro mode manual controls basically so you can tweak the lights of the white balance to suit whatever kind of conditions you’re currently in nice the shutter speed and everything and they can leave individual elements on auto as well so you don’t have to worry about absolutely everything and the manual modes on the Huawei smartphone you can actually shoot in RAW format as you can see here I can’t actually find a way of doing that here on

this yummy unfortunately so it looks like that’s not a possible thing you get plenty of other bonus modes and all three these smartphones as well start with of course good old portrait mode which can just look onto your subject keep it nice and sharp using that dual or in case the wires try lens tech and then blur the background with nice bokeh style effects really help them stand out oh there’s no form of nice modes here on the Xiaomi me it pull something which you do get on the wild Pete when he brought on the mid-20 ports absolutely fantastic low exposure shot but still comes out nice and crisp even when handheld it’s actually better here on the mid-20 poor you get more colorful vibrant results that set the standard everyday shots and the p20 poor we think are ever so slightly more detailed that’s probably because you have that monochrome lens which helps to fill in some of the finer details something which you lose here on the mid-20 pro that’s because of course you have the new ultra wide-angle view here on the mid-20 pod definitely gives you a greater degree of flexibility to shoot a nice ultra wide-angle shot or a standard shot or with another couple of

tough so you can zoom right the way in up to five times hybrid zoom so it doesn’t matter whether you’re shooting a sweeping Vista or trying to get some nice bit of architecture on a building just quick taps and you’re basically sorted for any situation as I mentioned before here on the p20 pro you just have that zoom action again all the way up to five times hybrid zoom really strong and of course you’ve got the two times optical zoom here on the show me me at poor so definitely nowhere near the same level of flexibility as the likes of the mate and if we swap to the video you’ll see that all three smartphones can shoot up to 4k resolution video the image stabilization has been vastly improved here on the mid-20 pro compared with the p20 poor and the mir process do alright the image stabilization front as well you should have sixty frames per second at full HD video on the wall ways rather and here on the xiaomi you can actually shoot full HD all the way up to a rather impressive 120 frames per second and that’s faster than the human eyeball can even see so when you view back the footage it looks hyper realistic i’m actually going to do a full camera comparison between the p20 pro and the gemiini airport and also the oneplus 60 so stay tuned for that if you want in depth look at how the photo and video quality and all that sort of stuff compares and of course before I forget all three of these smartphones also have a front-facing camera it’s a 20 megapixel F 2.0 here on the jammie mirepoix and in the case of the

Huawei’s it is a pair of 24 megapixels again f 2.0 being slightly thrown off by the studio lighting but as you can see there you’ll get a nice wide view of yourself and whatever you’ve got behind you or if you’ve got friends then you can have some friends in there that’d be nice wouldn’t it you can also shoot a lovely bit of portrait mode action with your glamorous self as well start right there in a nutshell is how these yummy meat processed acts up against the wall we’re p20 Pro and the mighty me at 20 pour another mate 24 deftly is our favorite of the three but it is also pretty pricey Peter when you go and get a bit more affordable these days because it is slightly older and it was the zsa me me at poori I’m got specific UK price and just yet because it hasn’t officially launched here yet but it will definitely be more affordable than a both of the Huawei smartphones and as you can see the mere pull holds up really well against the warrior arrivals are definitely terms of performance that display tech it’s got some neat features in there just a few little quirks unfortunately no official recognition just yet and the lack of the upstream that you install your own launcher there’s still a very solid smartphone I don’t forget to let me know what you think down in the comments below which one do you think might be best for you do you think they’re yummy me it pro stands up well against its rivals and don’t forget to poke that subscribe button and dig magnifications bar for more on the latest squits mobile tech just guys love you
