We compare the Xiaomi Mi 8 Pro, freshly launched in the UK, with two of Huawei’s best 2018 smartphones – the P20 Pro and Mate 20 Pro.
We’ve reviewed all three handsets over on Recombu and the P20 and Mate 20 Pro boast brilliant camera tech, but the Mi 8 Pro holds its own for specs. You get speedy performance with the Snapdragon 845 chipset, a gorgeous HD+ display, and MiUi 9 delivering some great features. That said, EMUI on the Huawei smartphones is still one of our favourites, boasting face recognition and strong gesture support – stuff missing (for now) on the Xiaomi Mi 8 Pro.
As for the camera tech, the Mi 8 Pro can produce great-looking photos and video in our tests. However, the P20 Pro and Mate 20 Pro boast a tri-lens camera with impressive flexibility and features. Stay tuned for a full comparison between the Xiaomi and Huawei P20 Pro for overall quality.
