Design

  • OnePlus 7 Pro: 162.6 x 75.9 x 8.8mm, 206g
  • Huawei P30 Pro: 158 x 73.4 x 8.41mm

The OnePlus 7 Pro offers a premium design with a metal frame and a glass rear and it comes in three colours. The OnePlus 7 Pro has a full, uninterrupted display with a pop up front camera and there is a triple camera centralised on the rear in a horizontal format.

The Huawei P30 Pro has a metal frame with a glass rear and it comes in four colours. A quad camera is positioned in the top left of the rear, while on the front, there is a small waterdrop notch at the top of the display.

The P30 Pro is IP68 water and dust resistant, it features USB Type-C for charging and it doesn't offer a 3.5mm headphone jack. The OnePlus 7 Pro is water resistant but it doesn't have an official IP rating. Like the Huawei, it doesn't have a 3.5mm headphone jack either.

Display

  • OnePlus 7 Pro: 6.67-inch, OLED, Quad HD+
  • Huawei P30 Pro: 6.47-inch, OLED, Full HD+

The OnePlus 7 Pro has a 6.67-inch Fluid AMOLED display with a Quad HD+ resolution. There is no notch present thanks to the pop up front camera, delivering an uninterrupted display.

OnePlus also offers a 90Hz refresh rate on the 7 Pro, which should deliver a smoother experience than most other smartphones, many of which have a 60Hz refresh rate, including the P30 Pro.

The Huawei P30 Pro has a 6.47-inch AMOLED display, resulting in a slightly smaller screen to the OnePlus 7 Pro. The P30 Pro has a Full HD+ resolution too, meaning the OnePlus device is sharper and the Huawei also has a small notch at the top to house the front camera.

Camera

  • OnePlus 7 Pro: Triple rear (48MP+16MP+8MP)
  • Huawei P30 Pro: Quad rear (40MP+20MP+8MP+ToF)

The OnePlus 7 Pro comes with a triple camera featuring a 48-megapixel main sensor, coupled with a 16-megapixel ultra-wide sensor and an 8-megapixel telephoto sensor. The pop up front camera has a 16-megapixel resolution and an aperture of f/2.0.

The Huawei P30 Pro meanwhile, has a Leica quad camera on the back, made up of a 40-megapixel wide angle lens, a 20-megapixel ultra-wide angle lens, an 8-megapixel telephoto lens and a Time of Flight sensor. Its results are excellent.

The P30 Pro's front camera is a 32-megapixel snapper with an aperture of f/2.0.

Hardware

  • OnePlus 7 Pro: SD855, 6/8/12GB RAM, 4000mAh
  • Huawei P30 Pro: Kirin 980, 8GB RAM, 4200mAh

The OnePlus 7 Pro comes with the Qualcomm Snapdragon 855 under its hood, supported by 6GB, 8GB or 12GB of RAM. Users also have the option of 128GB or 256GB of storage, neither of which have microSD support for storage expansion. 

In terms of battery, the OnePlus 7 Pro has a 4000mAh cell, which offers the company's 30W Warp Charge.

The Huawei P30 Pro has the very powerful Kirin 980 chipset inside, coupled with 8GB of RAM and a choice of 128GB of storage or 512GB.

It has a 4200mAh battery capacity that supports Huawei's 40W SuperCharge, as well as wireless charging - a feature the OnePlus 7 Pro leaves off its list.

Software

  • OnePlus 7 Pro: OxygenOS (based on Android)
  • Huawei P30 Pro: Android with EMUI

The OnePlus 7 Pro runs on Oxygen OS built on Android Pie, which is a customised version of Android.

The Huawei P30 Pro runs on Android Pie with the EMUI skin over the top. It means both these devices will offer a different user experience to each other, despite being based on Android at their core.

Price

  • OnePlus 7 Pro: From £699
  • Huawei P30 Pro: From £899

The OnePlus 7 Pro starts at £699, with the top model costing £799.

The Huawei P30 Pro starts at £899, which means it is quite a bit more expensive than the OnePlus 7 Pro.

Conclusion

The OnePlus 7 Pro offers a larger, sharper and faster display than the Huawei P30 Pro, along with more RAM, no notch to interrupt the display and a cheaper price point.

The Huawei P30 Pro meanwhile, has a larger battery capacity, wireless charging and the option of more storage compared to the OnePlus 7 Pro.

The P30 Pro also has an excellent camera that the OnePlus 7 Pro doesn't quite compete with based on our experience of the two devices, but it is of course more expensive.
