One interesting thing about the Huawei Mate 30 Pro is that its ultrawide camera comes with a 40MP camera. Now this means that you should expect to shoot incredible pictures of really wide areas. The Google Pixel 4 XL might not have listed the ultrawide feature as part of their camera but trust me, from experience, the Pixel 4 XL can also take really awesome photos of really wide areas.

Google has not been a fan of many cameras but they sure put in the best technologies in the cameras of their phone. While both phones can take incredible pictures, the Huawei Mate 30 pro should take better ultrawide angle pictures.

Most users have been showing disappointment in the storage space provided in flagship devices this year. In truth, as technology continue to advance, file sizes also keeps increasing.

That been said, when phone companies pack their phone with latest technology, they should also increase the storage space to accommodate these large files.

Both phone tried in this regard as they included a huge storage to accommodate its files.
