OnePlus 7 Pro vs Huawei P30 Pro-Display

The display is the forte for OnePlus 7 Pro which flaunts a 6.67-inch Fluid AMOLED display from Samsung with a Quad HD+ resolution. We are really impressed with how truly bezel-free OnePlus is able to make this Smartphone. With no notch, you will enjoy the seamless, smooth and bright display, all thanks to the pop-up front camera. For a smoother experience, OnePlus 7 Pro uses a 90Hz refresh rate which means you will experience more fluid and smoother animation than the 60Hz displays like Huawei P30 Pro has.

Huawei P30 Pro features a 6.47-inch AMOLED display which is Full HD+ not as sharper and vibrant as the OnePlus 7 Pro even when it is priced higher. Also, there is a small notch at the top of the display that houses the front camera.

But don’t make a decision yet. There are more features to check out.

The Huawei P30 Pro features a powerful Kirin 980 chipset inside which is comparatively less efficient than OnePlus 7 Pro’s processor. For RAM you only an 8GB option but can choose between 128GB or 512GB ROM.

For power, OnePlus 7 Pro depends on a 4000aAh battery while Huawei P30 Pro is powered by a 4200aAh cell. But the difference in the battery is not more juice but also how bad OnePlus 7 Pro is at conserving the battery life. The brilliant, bright and huge display on the device sucks battery life out of it and the only resort is to optimize the refresh rate and resolution to have better battery backup.

Furthermore, OnePlus 7 Plus does not support wireless charging and depends on its 30W Warp Charger while P30 Pro supports Huawei’s 40W SuperCharge and wireless charging as well.
