If aesthetics are your first concern when you are going to choose a new smartphone. then Huawei P20 Lite is the perfect handset for you. It is one of the most beautiful devices thanks to its reflective glass back and its notched display which make it compact and lightweight. Xiaomi Mi 6X features a bigger display which may be more advantageous for productivity. It also provides better performance as its SoC is way superior in both benchmarks and daily use. It also comes in an even more powerful variant with 6 GB of RAM and 128 GB of internal storage, while Huawei P20 Lite comes with max. 4 GB of RAM. Further, Xiaomi Mi 6X has a better camera department. Both the rear and front cameras include Sony sensors with bright apertures. The dual rear setup features 2x optical zoom and supports AI for scene recognition.

Huawei P20 Lite definitely has a better design as  it is more beautiful to look at. But Xiaomi Mi 6X wins the comparison on almost all the other departments. So, I would actually choose Xiaomi Mi 6X for an eventual purchase. Its launch price in China is about €207/$253. In order to know its price in the global market, we have to wait for the launch of Xiaomi Mi A2, which will be the same handset featuring Android One for the global market. Huawei P20 Lite has been launched at about €370/$451 worldwide, but it can already be purchased at about €300 thanks to online street prices.
