We just went through one of the busiest years ever for new phones with some even saying that manufacturers have been releasing too many devices. The good news is that you have a lot of alternatives if you are looking for something new. Let’s compare and see which one suits you best.
Performance, charging and battery life
Three of the phones mentioned in the title come with the Snapdragon 845 processor, meaning that they offer similar performance. Huawei Mate 20 Pro comes with the Kirin 980 processor inside that has a Neural Processing Unit handling all AI features. Each phone is really fast, but Huawei’s has a slight edge in raw power, while the Pixel 3 XL is better for everyday use.
The Pixel loses in the RAM department, having only 4 GB while the rest come with 6 GB. Another case where Pixel loses is the battery department. This is where the Mate 20 Pro powers through since it has the biggest capacity and the ability of lasting up to two days between charges.
The OnePlus 6T is the phone that comes with the most desirable design released by the manufacturer. The Note 9 could have borrowed some inspiration from the S9 Plus, while the Pixel 3 XL comes with deepest and ugliest notch. The Mate 20 Plus is shaped like the S9 Plus and its design features really catch the eye.
Last but not least, let’s talk about their screens. It is surprising how close these phones are in this department. They all come with displays of similar size, they all are OLED screens and fantastic. It used to be that Samsung lead by miles in this department but it seems that everybody caught up.
