Design

1.is dustproof and water-resistant
Huawei Mate 30
The device is dustproof and water-resistant. Water-resistant devices can resist the penetration of water, such as powerful water jets, but not being submerged into water.
2.weather-sealed (splashproof)
Huawei Mate 30
The device is protected with extra seals to prevent failures caused by dust, raindrops, and water splashes.
3.weight

196g

We consider a lower weight better because lighter devices are more comfortable to carry. A lower weight is also an advantage for home appliances, as it makes transportation easier, and for many other types of products.
4.waterproof depth rating

2m

The waterproof depth rating indicates how well the device is protected against water ingress and water pressure. Devices which can withstand more water pressure are better for swimming or diving.
5.Ingress Protection (IP) rating

68

The Ingress Protection (IP) rating classifies the degree of protection against dust and water. Higher ratings are better. For example, a device rated IP68 can resist immersion into water for a certain time, specified by the manufacturer.
6.has a physical QWERTY keyboard
Huawei Mate 30
Text messaging is much faster due to a hardware keyboard.

Display

1.pixel density

381ppi

Pixel density is a measurement of a screen's resolution, expressed as the number of pixels per inch (PPI) on the screen. A higher pixel density translates into more clarity and sharpness for the images rendered on the screen, thus improving the quality of the viewing experience.
2.resolution

1080 x 2340px

Resolution is an essential indicator of a screen's image quality, representing the maximum amount of pixels that can be shown on the screen. The resolution is given as a compound value, comprised of horizontal and vertical pixels.
3.screen size

6.62"

The bigger the screen size is, the better the user experience.
4.has branded damage-resistant glass
Huawei Mate 30
Damage-resistant glass (such as Corning Gorilla Glass or Asahi Dragontrail Glass) is thin, lightweight, and can withstand high levels of force.
5.Has an OLED or AMOLED display
Huawei Mate 30
OLED (Organic Light-Emitting Diode) displays are formed of organic materials that emit light. They have higher contrast ratios and wider viewing angles compared to LCDs. AMOLED and POLED are types of OLED displays.
6.has a touch screen
Huawei Mate 30
You can operate the device easily, by pressing the screen with your fingers.

Performance

1.CPU speed

2 x 2.86GHz & 2 x 2.36GHz & 4 x 1.95GHz (Huawei Kirin 990 5G)

The CPU speed indicates how many processing cycles per second can be executed by a CPU, considering all of its cores (processing units). It is calculated by adding the clock rates of each core or, in the case of multi-core processors employing different microarchitectures, of each group of cores.
2.RAM

8GB

Random-access memory (RAM) is a form of volatile memory used to store working data and machine code currently in use. It is a quick-access, temporary virtual storage that can be read and changed in any order, thus enabling fast data processing.
3.has an external memory slot
Huawei Mate 30
The device has a standard memory slot (such as an SD or micro SD card slot) that enables you to extend the built-in internal storage with affordable memory modules, or easily retrieve data, such as photographs, from the memory card.
4.internal storage

256GB

The internal storage, also called read-only memory (ROM), refers to the built-in storage space available in a device for system data, apps, and user-generated data. With a large amount of internal storage, you can save more files and apps on your device.
5.Has integrated LTE
Huawei Mate 30 (Huawei Kirin 990 5G)
The system on a chip (SoC) has an integrated LTE cellular chip. LTE is capable of downloading at faster speeds than older, 3G technology.
6.semiconductor size
Small semiconductors provide better performance and reduced power consumption. Chipsets with a higher number of transistors, semiconductor components of electronic devices, offer more computational power. A small form factor allows more transistors to fit on a chip, therefore increasing its performance.

Cameras

1.megapixels (main camera)

40MP & 16MP & 8MP

The number of megapixels determines the resolution of the images captured with the main camera. A higher megapixel count means that the camera is capable of capturing more details. However, the megapixel count is not the only important element determining the quality of an image.
2.megapixels (front camera)

24MP

The number of megapixels determines the resolution of the images captured with the front camera. A higher megapixel count means that the front camera is capable of capturing more details, an essential factor for taking high-resolution selfies.
3.has built-in optical image stabilization
Huawei Mate 30
Optical image stabilization uses gyroscopic sensors to detect the vibrations of the camera. The lens adjusts the optical path accordingly, ensuring that any type of motion blur is corrected before the sensor captures the image.
4.video recording (main camera)

2160 x 60fps

The maximum resolution available for videos shot with the main camera. Although it may be possible to choose among other frame rates, those recordings usually have lower resolutions.
5.wide aperture (main camera)

f/1.8 & f/2.2 & f/2.2

With a wider aperture the sensor can capture more light, helping to avoid blur by enabling a faster shutter speed. It also provides a shallow depth of field, allowing you to blur the background to focus attention on the subject.
6.Has a dual-tone LED flash
Huawei Mate 30
A dual-tone flash has LED lights with different color temperatures, delivering a better color balance to photos and videos.

Audio

1.has stereo speakers
Huawei Mate 30
Devices with stereo speakers deliver sound from independent channels on both left and right sides, creating a richer sound and a better experience.
2.has a socket for a 3.5 mm audio jack
Huawei Mate 30
With a standard mini jack socket, you can use the device with most headphones.
3.Has a radio
Huawei Mate 30
A built-in FM radio tuner allows you to listen to most of the live-broadcasted FM radio stations without using the internet.
4.number of microphones

2

More microphones result in better sound quality and enable the device to filter out background noise.
5.Has dedicated media keys
Huawei Mate 30
Phones with physical keyboards have dedicated media keys, such as: play, stop, next, previous, volume up/down, etc.
