Huawei P40 Pro Plus and iPhone 11  Pro Max which one is the king?

Apple has announced its best iPhone 11 Pro Max. This iPhone is the best iPhone among all of the iPhone 11 family. This phone supports new different technologies making this iPhone a class of its own such as the new XDR and Dolby Vision which has never been used on iPhone before.

On the other hand, The P40 Pro + smartphone is the third in the 2020 P edition range, but also Huawei's third 5G smartphone this year. This is the most efficient model of the Chinese firm, which deploys all its know-how in mobile photography. A smartphone is designed in the hope of being essential, even though Google services are absent.

 Offered at a price of 1,767USD Huawei's smartphone competes in the ultra-premium smartphone category, like the Sony Xperia 1 Mark 2 and Samsung Galaxy S20 Ultra. The Huawei P40 Pro + is also a serious competitor to the Samsung. In this article, we will make a comparison between the iPhone 11 Pro Max and P40 Pro Plus to see which one the king is.

 Design &Display.

    If you look from the front, it will be difficult to distinguish the iPhone 11 Pro Max from last year's iPhone XS Max in the first place. The notched screen that we met with the iPhone X for the first time and the design created accordingly are also preserved in the iPhone 11 Pro Max. Rounded corners designed to match the screen, glass layers covering the front and back completely, and a stainless steel frame surrounding the edges are among the primary design elements of the iPhone 11 Pro Max.

Apple underlines that the glass used on both the front and back of the iPhone 11 Pro Max was specially developed by Corning and is more robust. It should be noted that we did not see any noticeable scratches on the windshield while using the phone. However, we don't have enough data to make a comment about the back, because right out of the box, we used the iPhone 11 Pro Max with the transparent case specially released by Apple for this phone. For this reason, the rear glass surface did not interact much with the external environment during our use.

However, we can say a few words about the transparent case at this point. The transparent case, using the same material as the transparent case released for the iPhone XR for the first time last year, is made of hard plastic. It fits well on the phone, but we feel occasional slight twists. While it makes the iPhone 11 Pro Max a little thicker and heavier, it provides a better grip and helps a little more in preventing the phone from slipping in one hand. It also prevents the rear camera module from protruding, preventing that area from touching the surface when the phone is placed on a table or similar.

Going back to the smartphone, the most important details that will distinguish an iPhone 11 Pro Max from its predecessor are hidden behind. We see that Apple is using both a different camera array and a different type of material on the back. There are three cameras on the back and these are placed in a square-shaped module in the upper left corner. Besides the cameras, there are also flash and microphone. This section is designed from shiny glass. The remaining glass surface has a matte texture. This frosted glass-like glass surface was created by Apple with a special technique. It has more friction against the glossy glass surface, which will contribute to comfortably controlling the phone in case-free use.

The iPhone 11 Pro Max has a slightly larger surface area and thickness than last year's XS Max model. At the same time 226 gr. slightly heavier than its predecessor. When we hold each phone in both hands, we can feel the difference in weight. However, we have to say that it does not create a feeling of fatigue when holding the phone for a long time. Despite its stylish appearance, the iPhone 11 Pro Max, which is a very robust phone, also makes progress in water and dust resistance. This year's phone is also IP68 resistance, but unlike the XS Max, it can stay in water at a depth of 4 meters for half an hour.

When we look at the edges, we do not see any difference compared to last year's models. On the lower edge, there is a Lightning port, speaker, microphone. On the left edge are the mute button, the volume keys. On the right edge is the side button and nanoSIM card tray. We also see that the edges are cut by antenna lines at various points.

 On the flip side, Huawei P40 Pro Plus comes with a glass front. Huawei swaps glass and aluminum for ceramic, both for the back and for the frame. In addition to giving a very nice look to the mobile, it offers much better protection against scratches. The P40 Pro Plus has an IP68 water and dust resistance.

 In addition, the smartphone has the same dimensions as the P40 Pro. The format is the same, only the weight changes. We, therefore, end up with a 226 g mobile (the same weight as the iPhone 11 Pro Max). A gain that we surely owe to the material used as well as to the presence of an additional photo module.

 The right edge accommodates the traditional volume control buttons as well as the ignition. On the lower one are placed the USB-C port as well as a speaker. The other slices are blank.

  As far as display is concerned, iPhone 11 Pro Max comes with a 6.5 OLED screen which is called the Super Retina XDR, offers an impressive visual experience thanks to Apple's optimizations. It occupies 83.7 of the front of the device. iPhone 11 Pro Max has 2688 x 1242 resolution with 458 PPi, we have a screen that offers very clear and sharp images and texts. When you look at the screen, the images are smooth, you cannot notice the pixels with the naked eye.

The elements of the high experience offered by the screen are not limited to resolution only. The OLED screen used by Apple offers realistic and vivid colors thanks to its high black depth and contrast. In this case, you can see the photos you take more realistically and make your arrangements comfortably on your smartphone. On the other hand, the screen has a brightness of up to 800 nits. This makes using iPhone 11 Pro Max more comfortable in all conditions.

Apple says the iPhone 11 Pro Max's screen brightness is automatically adjusted according to the content you're watching. For example, while watching a movie, the screen brightness can reach 1200 nits depending on the scene. In practice, the difference in high screen brightness appears. In a very bright environment, it is possible to see how the screen brightness of the iPhone 11 Pro Max, from which bright light is directed, automatically rises to high levels. Meanwhile, Apple's True Tone technology is also available. In this way, the color temperature of the screen is adjusted automatically according to the light in the environment. We mostly used the iPhone 11 Pro Max in this setting, especially when browsing websites, the difference is seen on white backgrounds, eye comfort is increased.

The high brightness of the screen also offers an advantage on the side of HDR support. iPhone 11 Pro Max's Super Retina XDR OLED display offers Dolby Vision support as well as HDR10. You can see the difference in this support, especially in movies you download from iTunes or some original productions you watch on Netflix. Colors are more vivid, visual elements such as clouds and smoke become a little more pronounced. The aspect ratio of the screen is 19.5: 9. In most Netflix series, we did not prefer full-screen playback, as getting to full screen causes clipping at the top and bottom. The same is true for YouTube videos. However, the situation is a little better for the 21: 9 aspect ratio movies that we download from iTunes or watch from Netflix. Watching movies of that format on the full screen is enjoyable.

One of the elements that distinguished the screens of the iPhone XS and XR models last year were 3D Touch technology. The screen, which detects different pressure levels, could thus perform different functions. With iOS 13, Apple made these functions depending on the software. Therefore, 3D Touch technology was not needed. The experience offered on screens with 3D Touch is again offered. Thanks to the new vibration motor, the movements triggered when you press the screen are accompanied by a vibration that reminds you of the old.

This high performance and visual richness of the screen is accompanied by the sound side. The iPhone 11 Pro Max also has two speakers, one placed on the bottom edge and the other on the handset speaker. Last year, Apple made significant improvements in the sound output of stereo speakers with the iPhone XS Max, making the stereo sound effect offered by the more pronounced. While those improvements are maintained this year, an audio technology that we've heard more and more like Dolby Atmos is supported.

Dolby Atmos makes it possible to feel the environmental sound effect even better, especially in supported movies. Best of all, you don't need any additional accessories to understand the difference between this brace. The speakers of the iPhone 11 Pro Max have this support. This speaker system, which has a very high sound output compared to a smartphone, allows you to feel the direction of the sound comfortably in movies. Moreover, even if you are on the back of the phone, you can easily hear the sound. This will be especially useful when listening to music on your iPhone with your friends. The bass and treble of the sound from the speaker is balanced and satisfying. Note that it does not explode at the highest level.

Now an Apple classic, the iPhone 11 Pro Max does not have a 3.5mm headphone jack. EarPods with Lightning tips come out of the box. Ideally, the iPhone 11 Pro Max would be to purchase a headset that will easily be paired with this phone and work practices, such as AirPods or the new AirPods Pro. However, let's point out that you can easily use your other wireless headphones.

Contrastingly, Huawei P40 Pro Plus comes with a 6.80 OLED display. It occupies 91.6% of the front of the device. The P40 Pro Plus has a 1200 x 2640 resolution with 441 PPi.  The device also supports HDR10. It also has support for the 90Hz refresh rate

   Operating System and Processor

 iPhone 11 Pro Max is powered by the brand-new A13 Bionic. This Apple-designed processor has six cores. While 2 of these are designed for high-frequency and power-intensive jobs, the remaining four cores prioritize productivity-focused work. At the same time, the quad-core graphics processing unit is also within the Apple A13. The processor is built using a 7nm process for extreme power efficiency, and it has a neural engine on board for AI-related tasks.

Meanwhile, Huawei P40 Pro Plus is powered by Kirin 990 5G. This powerful processor is built using a 7nm process for extreme power efficiency, and it also has a neural engine on board for AI-related tasks.

   In Geekbench test, the iPhone scored 5423 points for the single-core and 13084 for the multicores. While the P40 Pro Plus scored 877 for single-core and 2712 for multicores.

 According to the operating system, the iPhone 11 Pro Max runs on iOS 13. With OS 13, significant progress is made in terms of both performance and functionality. While there are various errors at the beginning, Apple is pretty quick to turn them off. We did not see any problems on the software side of the iPhone 11 Pro Max. The experience we used to on iOS 13 devices continues in the same way. Especially during the installation of the device, transferring files from the old iPhone or transferring via iCloud is very practical and provides great convenience.

Dark Mode is one of the features that come with iOS 13 and provides great comfort in the new iPhone. Dark Mode, which you can activate either manually or automatically from sunset to sunrise, will make your eyes more comfortable and save battery. Considering the OLED screen of the iPhone 11 Pro Max, we can say that the dark appearance on the iPhone 11 Pro Max contributed greatly.

Instead,   the Huawei Pro+ runs also on Android 10 with Huawei well-known EMUI 10.1 interface. This has some new features. Most notable is the arrival of a new intelligent personal assistant: Celia. When it works, this tool shows great responsiveness.

 Note the existence of Huawei Share which allows file sharing between Huawei smartphones without mobile data. This same function also allows you to access your phone's files from any PC or Mac connected to the same Wi-Fi network.

 Overall, the navigation is rather smooth and offers several customizations, including the ability to switch to dark mode, configure navigation by gestures or activate or not the application drawer. A sidebar of configurable shortcuts allows you to display the window of one app on top of another.

  Security and Ports

  On the security side, iPhone 11 Pro Max does not come with a fingerprint sensor. It also unlocks using 3D face recognition which has been improved by the years. Apple continues to develop Face ID with 2019 model iPhones. Face screen unlock is a bit faster than before. Now, as soon as you turn on the phone's screen, you will see the lock icon unlocked at the top of the lock screen. It also supports the same classical unlocking methods which any other smartphone has such as pattern and passcode.

In contrast, The P40 Pro Plus comes with a fingerprint sensor is placed under the display. The latter is also very fast and works as well - or even better - than the one on the P30 Pro (which was already excellent). It doesn't support 3D face recognition for unlocking the device. The P40 Pro Plus also supports the classical unlocking methods such as pattern and passcode.

   As of ports, the device supports Bluetooth 5 and NFC. It supports VoLTE and WiFi Calling. The device comes with a USB-C port, which helps in quick charing. It doesn't support a 3.5mm headphone jack.

Or rather, the Pro Plus phone supports Bluetooth 5 and NFC. It supports VoLTE and WiFi Calling. The device comes with a USB-C port, which helps in quick charging. The device has no 3.5mm headphone jack, like many of today's flagships which choose to say goodbye to such technology.

 Battery and Charging

 iPhone 11 Pro Max comprises a powerful Li-Ion battery with a capacity of 3969mAh.  While Huawei P40 Pro Plus provides quite a powerful Li-Polymer 4200mAh battery. Both phones also offer fast charging.

 Apple said it made significant strides in battery life when introducing new iPhones. He also specifically said that the iPhone 11 Pro Max offers 5 hours more battery life than the iPhone XS Max. Considering that last year's XS Max model has a 3174 mAh battery, we see that the physical capacity increase will have an effect. Add to that the productivity improvements Apple has brought with the A13 Bionic. As a result, in practice, it becomes possible to see the effects of the iPhone 11 Pro Max's increased battery life.

Let's give an example, start using the iPhone 11 Pro Max with 90 percent battery charge; As a result of an intense use of activities such as photographing, sharing video stories on Instagram, surfing on social media, using Personal Hotspot for about three hours, listening to radio over 3 hours over 4.5G, surfing the internet and reading updates on social networks, After 24 hours, we saw that there was a 75 percent occupancy left.

iPhone 11 Pro Max will make a workday comfortable even for those who use their phone heavily. You can easily take the phone from the charger in the morning and use it until the evening without running out of battery. We estimate that most normal users will need to recharge their phones every 1.5 days. As a result, the battery performance of the iPhone 11 Pro Max will delight most users.

There is also progress in charging. Apple eventually gave up its insistence on a 5W charging adapter, at least for the iPhone 11 Pro and 11 Pro Max. The 18W charger adapter we have seen on iPad Pro for the first time comes out of the box. There is also a USB-C to Lightning cable. In the charging test we carried out, we saw that it was reached from 0 percent to almost 50 percent in half an hour. It took two hours to reach full capacity. Let's also mention that the phone is on during this time. As a result, although it offers a slower charging performance than the 30W charging adapter sold separately by Apple, it offers faster charging than before with the charging adapter that comes out of the box.

iPhone 11 Pro Max also has fast charging support. You can conveniently charge this iPhone with accessories that support Qi wireless charging. Wireless charging is slow on this year's iPhone, as was the case with previous years' iPhones. But if you have a practical solution and enough time, you can charge your smartphone this way.

 On the other side of the coin, On the recharging side, we find fast charging at 40 W thanks to a dedicated power supply unit. Wireless charging goes from 27W to 40W as long as you have a compatible dock. Finally, reverse wireless charging remains at 27W, still one of the fastest on the market.

Huawei P40 Pro Plus and iPhone 11  Pro Max which one is the king?


   iPhone 11 Pro Max goes with a similar 12-megapixel triple-camera on the rear as clarified: 12Mp ( ultrawide with f\2.4),12MP( wide with f\1.8), and 12MP( telephoto with f\2.0). iPhone 11 Pro Max has a 12MP wide front-facing camera with an f\2.2 and SL 3D biometrics sensor.

 On the contrast,  Huawei P40 Pro Plus has a Penta-camera on the rear as clarified: 40Mp ( utrawide with f\2.2),50MP( wide with f\1.9 it has OIS and Laser AF), 8MP( telephoto with f\2.4), and 8MP( periscope telephoto with f\4.4)  ToF 3D( depth sensor). The Pro Plus has a 32MP wide front-facing camera with f\2.2and RI ToF 3D depth sensor.

 In broad daylight, the main module progresses slightly. The rendering is more precise and the image processing less destructive for details. In contrast, in our test scene, the image is a bit cooler than before. Apple's smartphone even holds a Samsung Galaxy Note 10 at bay, yet far from bad in the exercise. A great performance. On the other hand, the iPhone 11 Pro suffers from a slight optical defect which causes loss of quality in the corners of the images.

 Whereas, In broad daylight, Huawei's smartphone offers excellent shots. The image is detailed and the software processing hardly intervenes to smooth the scene. The colors are however a bit accentuated compared to what we see in the S20 Ultra. It's up to everyone to know the rendering they prefer for their photos.

In low light, again, the iPhone 11 Pro shows an improvement over its predecessor. Above all, our test pushes the iPhone to use its new "night" mode. It is intelligently activated automatically when conditions require it. In our scene, the rendering in automatic mode is, therefore, more satisfactory than that of the Galaxy Note 10, which also tends to smooth in the areas.

To put the iPhone 11 Pro's night mode to the test, we went - once is not customary - to the cellar. Our favorite statue is only lit by a small stream of light coming from a skylight. To shoot it, we used the automatic mode offered by the iPhone 11 Pro - which uses its night mode. Apple told us: its night mode will not make people believe that it is daylight. This is indeed the case, but electronic noise is very present and causes a lot of information to be lost.

 Reversing it, the the P40 Pro + goes higher in sensitivity than its opponent (ISO 1600). In fact, the image is better exposed but loses a little in precision. The S20 Ultra is satisfied with ISO 400 to preserve the details of the scene as much as possible.

In broad daylight, the apple brand is very present. Without excelling in the details rendered at a very wide angle, the shots display an excellent level. As almost always with the iPhone, the image processing favors warm tones and natural rendering. The approach of a Galaxy Note 10+ is slightly different in the exercise. Samsung plays more on the accentuation to reinforce the feeling of details. One of the strengths of the super-wide-angle iPhone 11 The Pro is that it maintains the right level over much of the image - except in the corners, suffering from barrel distortion. On the edges, the Galaxy Note 10+ gives the feeling of forcing the line, which is not the case with the iPhone 11 Pro.

 On the flip side,  this P40 Pro Plus succeeds where the vast majority of phones fail. Although overexposed, the shot offers many details, so much so that we could compare it with some standard modules of other mobiles. We just regret a loss of quality at the lower-left corner, but nothing too bad.

In low light, the iPhone 11 Pro fails to maintain this image quality. Like most smartphones, the degradation of the images is obvious. Electronic noise is very present, but Apple decides not to apply excessive smoothing. Again against Samsung's Galaxy Note 10+, the iPhone 11 Pro is not ridiculous. The Korean terminal offers better exposure but at the cost of poorly managed artifacts in the smoothing process. What is interesting is that Apple has chosen a trigger at 1/15 s for 2000 ISO, against 1/8 s and 1250 ISO for the Note 10+. In practice, the iPhone 11 Pro prefers to focus on the sharpness of a subject to the correct exposure of it.

On different choices, Huawei's flagship once again offers a rather impressive result. If the software processing smooths the image a lot and makes most of the details disappear, the objects that make up the scene are perfectly visible.

By day, the iPhone's 2x zoom isn't the best. As often, there is a fairly visible degradation of the image compared to the wide-angle. Electronic noise is more present and loses precision in small details. Opposite, the Galaxy Note 10 manages to produce more detailed images, despite a certain pallor.

 Reversing it, the the Huawei P40 Pro Plus only allows an x3 zoom, while that of the Galaxy S20 Ultra can go up to x4. However, the result is rather convincing and the P40 Pro + module offers a very good result. The shot is correctly exposed, the details are present, and if there is any smoothing, it is imperceptible.

In low light, the iPhone 11 Pro loses ground, like almost all of its competitors. The contribution of the aperture to f / 2 (one of the largest on the market for smartphone "zooms") is not obvious.

 That said, as, on all smartphones, it remains unusable. Compared to the S20 Ultra, we see better exposure as well as no digital noise. However, the smoothing is far too strong to be exploitable.

The x10 periscope zoom of our P40 Pro + offers a fairly impressive accuracy. The scene is clear, correctly exposed, and teeming with detail. The colors certainly stand out a little too much, but this does not spoil the general appearance of the shot. Otherwise, it must be recognized that Huawei engineers have been able to provide amazing work on this module. Especially since it has a focal length of 240 mm, which is long and which, in normal times, does not rhyme with a good result.

  At night, the image of the P40 Pro + comes out completely black. The objects that make up our scene are perceptible, but the cliché cannot be used.

The front photo module passes a course with now a 12 MP sensor. What brings a little boost to the level of detail compared to that of the Xs. Too bad the Portrait mode is not as good as with the rear module, however. Apple also introduced its "Sofie" mode, which boils down to the ability to record 120 fps slowed video with the front camera.

Contrastingly, the photos of the P40 Pro Plus are of excellent quality, very detailed, and do not come up against the brightness.

Apple renews its famous Portrait mode, which cuts out the subject in the foreground and creates a background blur. It remains at present one of the most efficient, even if it still happens to stumble on some mugs. The iPhone 11 Pro also introduces a new mode for portraits called "lighting in high mono values". It produces black and white shots and simulates a white background.

Or rather, Huawei Pro's portrait mode is convincing. The clipping is very precise and the subjects stand out very well against the background. A feat that we owe in part to the ToF sensor.

 Finally, For video, the iPhone 11 Pro climbs to a UHD definition in 60 fps. It is one of the small number of smartphones to deliver very high-quality images in this definition, without sacrificing fluidity or slowing down. The 11 Pro is also equipped with the "audio zoom" which allows you to orient the capture of sound during recording according to the focal length used.

While the P40 Pro + can shoot videos up to 4K at 60 frames per second. If it doesn't have an optical stabilizer (only electronic), the images are very stable, even if your handshakes a little too much.

Huawei P40 Pro Plus and iPhone 11  Pro Max which one is the king?


It would not be wrong to call the iPhone 11 Pro Max the best iPhone model Apple has to offer right now. The iPhone 11 Pro is pretty much the same, but due to the smaller screen and correspondingly low-capacity battery, it is one step below the 11 Pro Max. However, for those who do not like big-screen phones such as iPhone 11 Pro Max; For those looking for a more compact yet capable phone, the iPhone 11 Pro will be an accurate and cheaper choice.

Going back to the iPhone 11 Pro Max, although it follows the line of last year in terms of design, the renewed back design and matte surface win our appreciation. We're happy with the space gray color we have, but the night green color looks a bit more appealing. Moreover, it will make it clearer that you are using a new iPhone. We see the quality screen we expect from a flagship iPhone and even more on the iPhone 11 Pro Max. On this screen, not only watching movies or browsing the web but doing things in the productivity and creativity class seems quite enjoyable. Of course, the performance offered by the Apple A13 Bionic makes this possible. The sound quality is also at the best level we can see in a smartphone. On the battery side, we see that Apple is making really noticeable progress. The iPhone 11 Pro Max seems not to let even those who use their phone heavily down easily.

As we mentioned in the review, the biggest area where the iPhone 11 Pro Max and its siblings make a difference is the camera. Thanks to the triple rear camera system and new features added accordingly, the iPhone 11 Pro Max is able to compete with professional DSLR machines. The photos we took with the iPhone 11 Pro Max impressed us immensely. We think that the advances on the video side will also contribute to this device is the choice of many video producers.

Of course, all these positive aspects and possibilities we have mentioned have a price and that cost is quite high. You have to have a fairly large budget to own the iPhone 11 Pro Max. If you have no budget concerns, the iPhone 11 Pro Max can easily be at the top of your rubric. However, if you are in a difficult decision phase, taking into account the budget issue, it is best to determine your needs and wishes and decide accordingly. However, if we make a note, it would not be a wrong choice for those who are engaged in creative works such as video or photo shooting, if necessary, to push their budgets and prefer the iPhone 11 Pro or 11 Pro Max.

Conversely, The P40 Pro + is quite simply a great smartphone. This is the most versatile photo phone on the market today, and the rest of its spec sheet is just as impressive as its photo capabilities. Unfortunately, like the P40 and P40 Pro, this Pro Plus model does not include Google Mobile Services, which makes its use complicated for those who are not used to doing without it. It is therefore difficult to advise him against the Samsung Galaxy S20 Ultra which is just as exemplary and offers Google services.  What do you think? Do you recommend these phones?
