Performance, charge and battery life

The P30 Pro features the Kirin 980 of the Mate 20 Pro. It is a powerful piece of hardware and easily handle the latest 3D games. But it is still a processor of the past year and comparative tests show that Galaxy S10 Plus scores exceeded it, thanks to the new Qualcomm Snapdragon 855 processor. While both will provide solid performance, the S10 Plus is more powerful. Huawei flagships had traditionally worn a stronger battery than Samsung, but that ended with the Galaxy S10 range. However, Huawei still has the advantage in terms of charging, thanks to the incredibly fast charging of 40W. The S10 Plus an uses QuickCharge 2.0, which is outdated. While the S10 Plus is the most powerful, you will not notice contrasts in daily use. Where if you see differences is in the loading speed, faster in the P30 Pro.

Winner: Huawei P30 Pro

Design and durability

Huawei took its designs to even more impressive levels with the P30 Pro. The screen practically occupies the entire front, with only a small notch at the top. The back panel has an opalescent quality in eye-catching colors, such as pearl white and the amazing new dawn mbar. But the S10 Plus does not do it wrong. It has an equally impressive screen-body relationship and eliminates the notch with the new perforated chamber. If you prefer the notch or the perforator, they are personal tastes, but we prefer the style of the S10 Plus. Both come with water resistance with IP68 rating and have equally fragile glass bodies. Therefore, in both cases we recommend a protective case. In the matter of design and durability the Huawei P30 Pro vs. Samsung Galaxy S10 Plus go different paths, without taking advantages. While there is no winner, whomever you choose will not make you feel like a loser.
