The Huawei P30 Pro comes with everything to challenge the Galaxy S10 Plus, cell phone that has stolen the most attention in the last month.

The truth is that the two cell phones are more similar than ever when integrating a curved OLED screen, rear glass also with a slight curvature that makes them ergonomic, fingerprint reader on the screen, small bezels, wireless charging, reversible charging and Android Foot.

However, the Galaxy S10 Plus integrates an ultrasonic fingerprint reader that offers better performance in different conditions compared to the optical screen reader that integrates the Huawei P30 Pro. This means that with a sweaty, wet or even slightly dirty finger you can to be recognized, while the optical readers have many difficulties to achieve that effectively.

In addition, the Galaxy S10 Plus has a traditional headphone jack, can be purchased in more markets and has a microSD slot that is much cheaper and easier to acquire than the NM Card that can be placed in the Huawei P30 Pro.

For its part, the Huawei cell phone has an infrared transmitter that allows you to control all kinds of devices without an additional remote control and although it has three rear cameras that fulfill the same functions as those of the Galaxy S10 Plus (a regular, a wide angle and one to make optical zoom), the P30 Pro has a fourth lens of flight time (ToF, in English) that allows to detect with greater precision the distance and depth that exists between the objects.

As if that were not enough, the third mentioned lens shared by the two cell phones is very different, since this allows you to make 5X optical zoom to the Huawei P30 Pro, while the Galaxy S10 Plus can only do 2X optical zoom. However, if you do not want to do so much zoom and 2X is enough, it is possible that the Samsung cell phone wins because the Huawei cell phone uses the digital zoom.

Also, the Huawei P30 Pro integrates a formal night mode in your camera that allows you to obtain better results than what the Galaxy S10 Plus achieves with its artificial intelligence in too dark places.

Since we talk about cameras, the Galaxy S10 Plus also integrates dual front camera, while the Huawei P30 Pro only has one. That makes the Samsung cell phone theory better detect the depth of the objects than the Huawei cell phone.

In terms of performance, the two phones have powerful 8-core processors and enough RAM to offer a good experience. However, the Galaxy S10 Plus can be purchased with up to 1TB of storage and 12GB of RAM, while the Huawei P30 can only be purchased with up to 512GB of storage and 8GB of RAM.

Something interesting is that this Huawei cell phone can be purchased with 256GB of storage, an option not offered by the Galaxy S10 Plus.
