The Huawei Mate 20 Pro wins in the comparison, but that doesn’t make the iPhone XS a less or small phone. In fact, I will gladly choose the iPhone XS, not because I’m a dire Apple fan, but because I prefer the design than the Mate 20 Pro that somehow look awkward especially on the square camera’s set-up on the back. Far from that, the iPhone XS with 256GB is more affordable than the Mate 20 Pro with 128GB.
