The Huawei Mate 10 Pro and LG V30 are two devices released around the same time, with the first one being launched in September while the latter came out in August. Many might believe that there can’t be any important differences between two devices that have been launched so little time apart. However, that’s not necessarily the case, as from the start we can point out that the Mate 10 Pro comes with Android 8.0, giving a huge advantage over the Android 7.1 LG V30.
If you’re looking for differences that might convince you to get one phone or the other, the display won’t be the best area to look because the two handsets actually have pretty similar display units. Both comes with 6 inch units that have a max resolution of 2880 x 1440, and a pixel density of 538 pi and 537 ppi for the Mate 10 Pro and V30 respectively. One important different is that the former device uses IPS LCD while the latter uses P-OLED.
The Mate 10 Pro comes with the Kirin 970 processing unit, which is an octa core processor clocked at 2800 MHz, utilizing Cortex A73 and A53 cores. LG’s offering comes with a Snapdragon 835 produced by Qualcomm, and the Adreno 540 GPU. Huawei’s GPU is the Mali-G71 MP8.
Huawei takes the lead when it comes to RAP power, with a total of 6 GB of RAM available. LG only provides 4 GB of RAM for the V30,, and also comes with less internal storage room, 64 GB, as opposed to Huawei’s 128 GB. On the other hand, LG users can use a microSD card to boost their memory, which is not an option for Mate 10 Pro users.
In terms of front facing lenses, the Mate 10 Pro comes with an 8 MP lens whereas the LG V30 comes with a 5 MP unit on the front panel. Both come with a Dual Camera feature, but where the Mate 10 Pro provides a 20 MP lens, LG only supplements a 13 MP counterpart.
There’s no point in having a powerful device if you can’t keep it on for more than an hour before you need to recharge. To make sure things like that don’t happen, the manufacturers have started implementing larger and larger battery units, reaching as high as 4000 mAh. In fact, that’s the precise capacity of the battery unit found inside the Mate 10 Pro from Huawei. When we move over to the LG V30, we see a slightly lower battery of only 3300 mAh.
No matter which phone you choose, you are getting quite a bit of value for your dime. However, comparing them has made it clear that the Mate 10 Pro has unmistakable advantages over its opponent, starting with the superior OS build, and going down all the way to storage and battery.
