Huawei P30 (2019) vs Apple iPhone 8/8 Plus (2017)

Analysis:

The Huawei P30 Pro (2019) impressed reviewers from many sources that have a history of conducting objective testing, such as Android Central, Techradar, PCmag, Good Housekeeping, Tech Advisor, Notebookcheck.net, Android Authority, Tom's Guide, TrustedReviews, and camerajabber.com. It performed really well in their roundups - it was awarded the"Best International Option" title from Android Central, "The best superzoom smartphone" from Techradar, and "Best for Photography" from PCmag. That's high praise coming from numerous reliable sources.

Moving on to the Apple iPhone 8 Plus: 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 PhoneArena, Techradar, GSMArena, CNET, TrustedReviews, Expert Reviews, PCmag, AVForums, Digital Camera World, Tom's Guide, and Android Authority, enough for them to include them on those lists.

Out of the sources that tested and rated both of these Smartphones, Expert Reviews, Pocket-lint, GSMArena, Digitaltrends, TrustedReviews, CNET, and AVForums preferred the Huawei P30 Pro (2019), whereas reviewers at PhoneArena and Top Ten Reviews liked the Apple iPhone 8 Plus better. T3, Techradar, and PCmag gave them identical review scores.

We also took a look at which sources liked these products best - the highest Huawei P30 Pro (2019) rating came from Expert Reviews, whereas the Apple iPhone 8 Plus most impressed reviewers at T3; they earned scores of 10 and 10, respectively.

Lastly, we averaged out all of the reviews scores that we could find on these two products and compared them to other Smartphones on the market. We learned that both of them performed far better than most of their competitors - the overall review average earned by Smartphones being 7.5 out of 10, whereas the Huawei P30 Pro (2019) and Apple iPhone 8 Plus managed averages of 8.3 and 8.6 points, respectively.

Due to the difference in their prices, however, it's important to keep in mind that a direct Huawei P30 Pro (2019) vs. Apple iPhone 8 Plus comparison might not be entirely fair - some sources don't take value for money into account when assigning their scores and therefore have a tendency to rate more premium products better.
