Huawei Mate 10 Pro Vs Google Pixel 2 XL: Which One to Choose?

Huawei Mate 10 Pro Vs Google Pixel 2 XL: Which One to Choose?

If you are going to buy new Android flagship sooner than later, then chances are great that you will find Google’s Pixel 2 XL. It is one of the best Android devices on the planet, backed by a well renowned Tech Name, “Google”.

But wait! There is another competitor which is offering some nice features to their customers. The Huawei Mate 10 Pro smartphone matches up closely with the Pixel 2 XL by Google on few top features and various tech specs; however, there are some key details that differ between them. Here, we are going to show you the most prominent features of these two devices with the comparison so you can see where one is doing better than the other. So, let’s get started.

Design & Display

Both the Huawei Mate 10 Pro and the Google Pixel 2 XL mobile phones feature few very 2017 design elements. The Pixel 2 XL phone device has relatively bigger in terms of dimensions that features stunning rounded corners and tiny bezels.
Huawei Mate 10 Pro doesn’t have rounded corners though, but it does have a nice large display. The Pixel 2 XL comes with the mixture of glass and metal on the back. On the other hand, the Mate 10 Pro smartphone sticks with entirely glass on the rear side.

As far as display is concerned, both phones offer 6-inches large enough display; however, the Pixel 2 XL has a P-OLED display, and Mate 10 Pro is backed by AMOLED display. Pixel 2 XL by Google offers slightly better display resolution and density of 2880×1440 and 537ppi respectively than the Huawei Mate 10 Pro’s 2160×1080 pixel resolution and 402ppi pixel density. Other features are almost identical in both like Screen protection and Screen to body ratio.


Google Pixel 2 XL comes with the same 6 months old Qualcomm Snapdragon 835 processor chip. No doubt, it is one of the fastest chips around but as compared to the latest flagship Android phones, it’s considered as outdated. Still, it has plenty to experience super-fast and crazy smartphone experience with 4GB enough RAM and latest Android 8.0 Oreo onboard.

And when you see the Huawei Mate 10 Pro, it has new and updated HiSilicon Kirin 970 chip, which is far better than its predecessor. Backed by a neural processing unit within for A.I requirements as well as machine learning adapting feature, this is truly a speed master, particularly with 6GB of extended RAM.

All in all, the Kirin 970 compares very well, in terms of speed, performance, and everyday usage, to the Snapdragon 835 chip in benchmark testing.


Google Pixel 2 XL comprises a powerful Li-Ion battery with a capacity of 3520mAh. Huawei provides even more powerful Li-Polymer 4000mAh battery. This is a core difference. And both phones offer fast charging.


Huawei Mate 10 Pro goes with the similar dual-camera approach as you found in the P10 and P10 Plus phones, with a 12 Mega Pixels primary sensor and 20MP monochromatic secondary sensor. The camera of Mate 10 Pro rapidly focuses on whatever you shoot and adjusts accordingly, thanks to its A.I skills. This is truly one of the leading smartphone cameras on the market today, without any doubt.

But when we see the Pixel 2 XL Camera, it offers various new and exciting features like laser autofocus and phase detection and can deliver impressive shots swiftly. Due to Google’s state-of-the-art image processing abilities, you will get something incredible every time you shoot, and even in low light conditions. But still, it is a single lens shooter.
