Huawei Mate 20 pro vs P30

I'm in the process of buying a new phone and have so far narrowed my selection to last years Huawei Mate 20 pro and this years Huawei P30 (not the pro version). As they are both excellent phones, i am having trouble deciding which one to get. Bear in mind that both are the same price currently where i plan on buying it. I would appreciate any advice or discussion. Peace.

For now, that maker is avoided.

With the USA sanctions you don't see these in the USA which has put the company in jeopardy. I'd keep shopping.

I am not from the US.

I will be buying the device in a European country.

Then no sale. Why?

Let's put this out there. Besides the USA issue the company and it's salesperson is NOT answering your questions. That's never a good sign. It tells you how much support you'll get in the future.

Also, These appear to be Android based and with Google cutting them off from the store and more, dead end phones.

All the signs are here why not to buy. But will folk notice?

PS. You can research this issue.

That wasn't my question.

I know several people who recently bought Huawei phones and have no problems with them. Regular android updates, google app updates etc. Huawei has also stated that there will be no changes or cuts to existing phones, but possibly to the new phones. As i have stated, i am just asking which one is a better choice between the two. The Huawei/Google shenanigans are not a big factor to me.

Still no sale.

The maker and sellers are not answering your questions.

My answers are from where I am which is in the USA where Huawei is radioactive. No one will go near them here. And while I do travel a bit, attend tech seminars and more, no one is carrying that make.

My answer forgetting all the above is that when a maker and seller does not answer pre-sale questions, you shop other makes.

The P30 is a little smaller but has equivalent specs to the Mate 20 Pro. They each boast some of the best camera techs on any phone, surpassed only by the P30 Pro.

Mate 20 Pro is better

As per my personal experience, if you are not going for P30 pro, then must go for Mate 20 pro. It will have an edge over P30.
