The flagships of Huawei P30 Pro and Samsung Galaxy S10 are almost the same age, the first of them is only a month younger than the second. They have different developers, are created in different countries, but their performance is almost the same. Both models differ among the representatives of their brand in appearance and technical characteristics. Who will win the comparison of Huawei P30 or Samsung Galaxy S10?
Both smartphones are frameless. Their cases have a rectangular shape, the corners are rounded for convenient use. The edges of the screen follow the shape of the case. An exception is the upper frame of the Huawei P30, on which there is a small teardrop-shaped neckline. It has a front camera. Samsung did not use monobrow and installed a selfie camera in the hole on the display.
Which of the options is better is definitely impossible to say. For those who are annoyed with monobrow and bangs, Samsung S10 is better. You can hide the drop and cutout in the screen in the settings so that they are not visible. For lovers of brilliant and large, the Huawei will suit those who prefer a compact size. Samsung. The case of both devices is made of glass (Samsung has Gorilla Glass 5), which covers the aluminum frame. Samsung also uses ceramics.
Huawei mounted a fingerprint on the screen, Samsung Galaxy S10 also combined it with a power button. Both options cannot unlock the screen 100%, sometimes it crashes. Those who are annoyed can be configured to unlock the face. At Samsung, it happens a little faster, because for it you need to perform fewer movements. When you press the power button, unlocking by face or finger is immediately triggered. For Huawei, to turn on the screen again, you need to press a scanner or fingerprint.
Both smartphones have a headset jack. FM radio no. A USB 3.1 connector is used to connect the charger or transfer files quickly. Samsung Galaxy S10 is equipped with a slot for a memory card, Huawei has no possibility to install an additional memory card. Smartphones have a degree of protection against water IP68.
Both screens are made on a high-quality AMOLED matrix, with Samsung having Dynamic Amoled, and Huawei with BOE.
The difference is noticeable when evaluating the dynamic range of the video. For Huawei, this is HDR10, while for Samsung they used HDR10 for the first time (previously used only in TVs for better video quality). Over time, this will be a plus of the smartphone, but so far there is no content in order to evaluate the function. Both devices have two color rendering modes. One makes the image brighter, the other. natural. The maximum brightness level is high. Therefore, the screen can be seen even in bright sunlight.
In Huawei P30 Pro, sometimes you can achieve 800 cd / m², but this mode can only work for a short time. Prolonged operation at this brightness will lead to a burnout of the screen. The maximum color temperature of Samsung 7500K, Huawei 7500K. Black brightness 0 cd / m², the contrast is unlimited, as in all OLED screens.

The disadvantage of Huawei is that the “Auto brightness” here is actually turned on automatically. That is, it can be turned off, but after turning on the smartphone again, it will work again. The auto brightness is also turned on in the Galaxy S10, but here it only happens when the battery level is low.
In comparison, the Huawei P30 Pro vs Samsung Galaxy S10 model wins the Korean model in terms of screen quality. She has higher brightness, more modern dynamic range of the video.
Specifications smartphones are collected in the table:
The chipset of the smartphone Huawei Kirin 980 is made according to the 7 nm process, it has a modern cooling system. Its cores are divided into two clusters, where 2 productive and 6 energy-efficient ones are assembled.
The Exynos 9820 chipset is based on an 8-nm process. The architecture is the same as that of Huawei. Some cores work on solving simple problems, more powerful ones should be connected gradually, as the load increases. But in reality, cores with average power are slow, but they charge a lot.
Both processors have excellent gaming capabilities. There are blocks for improving the quality of photos (NDR, artificial intelligence) The new Samsung Galaxy S10 processor does not drain the battery as fast as earlier models. On the performance of the phones say the results of synthetic tests. Samsung scores more than 333 thousand points in AnTuTu, while Huawei P30 Pro. only 316 thousand points.
According to the results of comparing the technical parameters, the competition Samsung P30 Pro or Samsung Galaxy S10 also wins Samsung. But here the chipset is made according to the 8 nm process technology, so it is larger in size and warms up faster. In reality, it’s difficult to notice the difference in the performance of the two smartphones, and often simply impossible. Both devices easily cope with all tasks. It’s convenient to play them, you can run modern three-dimensional games at a high frequency.
Both smartphones have cameras that allow you to get high-quality photos.
Huawei P30 Pro 4 has a sensor:
- With 40 MP Quad Bayer filter, 1.6 aperture, 27 mm focal length
- 20MP super wide-angle lens, 2.2 aperture
- Telephoto lens with an 8 megapixel periscope lens, 3.4 aperture. Here the lenses are mounted parallel to the cap.
The camera has a 3x optical zoom, so the quality of the approximation is almost not lost. When using it, the smartphone switches to the camera with a different focal length. There is also a 5x digital zoom.
At Samsung Galaxy S10, the sensors that were installed on the previous version of S9 (12 megapixels, 12 megapixels) have a wide-angle 16 megapixel camera. Its viewing angle is greater than that of Huawei.
The Samsung camera has two shooting positions, and the Huawei has twice as many. But really, the zoom does not work for 40 megapixels, as stated, but only for 10 megapixels. Therefore, for 40 megapixels you cannot zoom in or out, and to get closer you need to switch to 10 megapixels. It is not comfortable. Using Samsung’s wide-angle lens, you can take photos and videos. Samsung has an ultra-wide module installed in a selfie camera. The quality of the photo is average.
In comparing photos taken with cameras, the P30 Pro wins. But for shooting video it is better to use Samsung. It can shoot 4k clips at 60 fps. Huawei has no such function. The front camera is 32 megapixels Huawei, aperture 1.9, Samsung 10 megapixels, aperture 2.0.
Communication and sound
Both smartphones support the work of two SIM cards in 3G-4G networks. The quality of communication is high. All popular wireless interfaces are installed.
Smartphones are powered by non-removable batteries. The capacity of the P30Pro is 4200 mAh, the Galaxy 10 Plus. 4100 mAh. Both of them support fast charging, can recharge the charge wirelessly. They can even share their charge with other smartphones (reverse charging).
The Huawei P30 Pro is charged with a 40W adapter. For half an hour, it replenishes 70% of the charge, and it takes 1 hour to fully charge.
At Samsung, the 15 W adapter in half an hour allows you to gain only 41% of the charge, and 100% is replenished in an hour and a half. In comparison, Samsung Galaxy S10 or Huawei P30 wins Huawei. Although both smartphones need to be charged every night.
