Here are the advantage of each smartphone:

Sony Xperia XZ2

+ Higher CPU clock speed

+ Higher rear camera resolution

+ 960 fps slow-motion

+ Bluetooth 5.0

+ expandable storage via microSD card slot

Huawei Mate 10 Pro


+ Larger screen size

+ Larger RAM

+ Larger internal storage

+ Higher front camera resolution

+ DisplayPort 1.2

+ Larger battery capacity

+ Lighter and slimmer

Both devices have the same aspect ratio and screen resolution with two main differences. The XZ2 has a TRILUMINOS display with a lower screen size while the Mate 10 Pro has an OLED display. In terms of viewing experience, the latter has the advantage.

In terms of clock speed, the Snapdragon 845 of the XZ2 is faster than the Kirin 970 of the Mate 10 Pro. As for GPU performance, the older Adreno 540 GPU of the Snapdragon 835 performed better than the Mali G72-MP12 of the Kirin 970 so we’re inclined to think that the Adreno 630 GPU is better and can handle gaming better.

When it comes to cameras, the 19MP rear camera resolution of the XZ2 is higher than the 12MP RGB sensor of the Mate 10 Pro but lower than its 20MP monochrome. For the front camera, the Mate 10 Pro has the advantage. We’ll know which camera is better once we have both devices on hand.

As for battery capacity, the Mate 10 Pro clearly has the advantage but it doesn’t have a wireless charging feature like the XZ2.

The XZ2 is yet to be priced while the Huawei Mate 10 Pro is priced at Php38,990.
