Xiaomi Mi Mix 3 brought a lot of innovation to the market with its design and it is also the most beautiful phone in this trio. It is the only one to come with a slider mechanism housing the front camera and sensors in order to eliminate the notch and minimize all the bezels around the display. Indeed, Xiaomi claimed that this device boasts a screen-to-body ratio equal to 93.4 percent. It also has a ceramic back and a frame made of 7000 series aluminum. So Xiaomi Mi Mix 3 wins, but note that Huawei Mate 20 Pro is the only to offer the IP68 certification which makes it waterproof.
Huawei Mate 20 Pro has the most stunning display, even though its notch is big as it houses the sensor for hardware-based 3D facial recognition. This screen has a huge QHD+ resolution of 3120 x 1440 pixels, it supports DCI-P3 coverage and it even has the HDR10 technology. So it has the best color reproduction and the highest detail.
At a first glance, Xiaomi Mi Mix 3 is the one which convinces us the most in terms of hardware, because besides sporting a Snapdragon 845 chipset, it comes with up to 10 GB of RAM. But yesterday AnTuTu showed us stunning scores obtained by OnePlus 6T which the platform considers the second best Android phone after Asus ROG Phone. On the other hand, Huawei Mate 20 Pro is intriguing as well with its Kirin 980, the first 7 nm chipset in the Android market. So, we will have to test all of them to give a final opinion and for now it is a draw.
The Mate 20 Pro features the same rear camera setup as the P20 Pro and Huawei did not release the DxOMark score of this device because it is too high. This should give you an idea about its capabilities. At least on the paper, Huawei Mate 20 Pro seems way better than its opponents with its triple camera composed of a primary 40 MP sensor, a secondary ultrawide 20 MP sensor and an 8 MP telephoto lens.
Besides having the best camera, Huawei Mate 20 Pro has also the biggest battery with a capacity of 4200 mAh. So it will probably last way more than OP6T and Mi Mix 3. Further, it features wireless charging and reverse wireless charging (it doubles as a wireless charger) which is not present on its opponents.
Huawei Mate 20 Pro is the most convincing device due to its better camera, display, and bigger battery, but it also costs more than OnePlus 6T and Xiaomi Mi Mix 3. Currently, you have to spend more than €1000/$1150 to get it, while OnePlus 6T and Xiaomi Mi Mix 3 start from €559/$550 and about €500/$568, respectively.
