Sony Xperia (2019) vs Huawei P20 (2018)

Analysis:

The Sony Xperia 1 (2019) is a great Smartphone for its $639 asking price.

The Huawei P20 Pro (2018), however, while a reasonable product for $449, doesn't stack up against its competitors quite as well. If you're considering Smartphones in the $360 range, you might want to check out some better options.

While the Sony Xperia 1 (2019) wasn't able to make it to the very top of any roundups from sources that perform quality hands-on testing, it still got featured in a large number of them. Android Central, Digital Camera World, Tech Advisor, AVForums, DXOMARK, GSMArena, Techradar, Expert Reviews, TrustedReviews, PhoneArena, camerajabber.com, Android Authority, Tom's Guide, and The Verge have all deemed it worthy of a place on their respective shortlists.

Moving on to the Huawei P20 Pro (2018): it was unable to reach the very top of any roundups from sources that conduct reliable and unbiased testing. Nonetheless, it still managed to impress reviewers from a number of such sites, like Photography Blog, Expert Reviews, GSMArena, TrustedReviews, Techradar, Tech Advisor, hardwarezone.com.sg, kitguru.net, The Verge, PhoneArena, CNET, AVForums, PCmag, What Hi-Fi?, slashgear.com, and Android Authority, enough for them to include them on those lists.

Out of the sources that tested and rated both of these Smartphones, AVForums and Android Authority preferred the Sony Xperia 1 (2019), whereas reviewers at T3, Pocket-lint, Expert Reviews, GSMArena, TrustedReviews, Techradar, Digitaltrends, The Verge, and PhoneArena liked the Huawei P20 Pro (2018) better. Tech Advisor and Lifewire gave them identical review scores.

We also took a look at which sources liked these products best - the highest Sony Xperia 1 (2019) rating came from Digital Camera World, whereas the Huawei P20 Pro (2018) most impressed reviewers at T3; they earned scores of 9 and 10, respectively.

Lastly, in order to better compare them to the rest of their competition, we averaged out their review scores. The Huawei P20 Pro (2018) managed to get 8.7 out of 10 - considerably better than the 7.5 review average of Smartphones in general - whereas the Sony Xperia 1 (2019) earned 7.4 points.

It should be said that doing a direct Sony Xperia 1 (2019) vs. Huawei P20 Pro (2018) comparison might not be entirely fair due to the difference in their prices - some sources don't put much weight on value for money and thus tend to give better review scores to more expensive products.
