Huawei Mate 10, together with its Pro version obviously, is actually the best phone by Huawei, while Xiaomi Mi Mix 2 is the best flagship by Xiaomi. Which one is better and which one is worth the money are the two questions that we want to answer with this comparison, if you do not know which one you want to buy. There are many factors to consider, so let’s start. What we say in this comparison is valid for the Mate 10 Pro as well.
Huawei Mate 10 vs Xiaomi Mi Mix 2: Design
In terms of design, we prefer Xiaomi Mi Mix 2 for both materials and look. It has a back cover made of ceramic and a frame made of metal. Furtherly, it has a very high screen to body ratio, with incredibly thin bezels on three sides and a thicker one on just one side, but still thin enough to be considered great. Huawei Mate 10 has thin bezels as well, but they are more evident, and its back cover is made of glass instead of ceramic.
Huawei Mate 10 vs Xiaomi Mi Mix 2: Display
The display from Huawei Mate 10 and 10 Pro is way better than the one found on Xiaomi Mi Mix 2. The flagship from Huawei in its standard version has a 5.9 inch screen with a Quad HD resolution and HDR10 technology. It has an outstanding detail and incredibly rich colors. The Mate Pro has a 6 inch AMOLED display with a Full HD+ resolution and it has HDR10 technology as well. Mi Mix 2 has a 5.99 inch display with a FHD+ resolution, but without HDR.
Huawei Mate 10 vs Xiaomi Mi Mix 2: Hardware
Huawei Mate 10 has an octa core Kirin 970 chipset, 4 GB of RAM and 64 GB of internal storage in its base variant. Xiaomi Mi Mix 2, on the other side, sports an octa core Snapdragon 835 SoC, 6 GB of RAM and 64 GB ROM. We prefer Xiaomi Mi Mix 2 in terms of performance because it has a more powerful hardware and it can handle more apps with a higher speed. But keep in mind that its opponent has AI which makes it do many more smart things.
Huawei Mate 10 vs Xiaomi Mi Mix 2: Camera
Huawei Mate 10 has a dual camera by Leica with resolutions of 20 + 12 MP, while Xiaomi Mi Mix 2 has a single Sony IMX368 sensor with a resolution of 12 MP. Huawei Mate 10 wins with brighter photos which have more detail, AI helping to shot better photos by recognizing the scenes, and better performances in low light conditions.
Huawei Mate 10 vs Xiaomi Mi Mix 2: Battery
4000 vs 3400 mAh: Huawei Mate 10 can last much more than its opponent. There are still not enough test to establish how much each of these devices actually lasts, but for sure Mate 10 wins.
Huawei Mate 10 vs Xiaomi Mi Mix 2: Price
Huawei Mate 10, as well as 10 Pro, wins the comparison, but there is a price. You can actually buy Xiaomi Mi Mix 2 at less than 500 euros, while Mate 10’s price will start from about 800 euros. So, it is a good compromise if you have a low budget, and if you do not need the best display and camera, you can go for its opponent.
