DESIGN AND DURABILITY

iPhone X vs. Huawei P20 Pro

Yes there is notch, how do people keep forgetting apple was not the first who introduced notch design in his smartphone. First was the most unpopular Essential mobile phone company who introduces notch and the worlds smallest notch. After that Apple give it a nice trim to make it elegant with its small chin design smartphone. After that notch in different smartphone with different sizes and the Huawei is the one with big chin but small notch as compared to Apple.

IPhone X has big notch on its top because of its face Id camera and sensors. There’s no fingerprint sensor at all. The back is also finished in glass, though the colors are less adventurous than the P20 Pro. The camera modules are pretty similar. Interestingly, both phones weigh exactly the same, but the iPhone X is significantly smaller in hand.

People love the curved glass design of the P20 Pro at the front and on the back with changing its shade in different angles of light, particularly the twilight finish, with its mix of green, blue, and purple. Huawei has chosen to put the fingerprint sensors on the front, in the old traditional spot beneath the screen.

Overall we prefer the IPhone because of its one handed design and the overall looks from the front and the back. And the P20 Pro looks sleek from its own small notch design and multi shaded back glass.

Winner: Apple IPhone X
