Xiaomi vs Huawei – which one is better?


Xiaomi and Huawei, both are Chinese manufacturers that are gaining huge attention from people all over the world. In this article, we will discuss which one is better in features terms? Which one should be purchased as an individual plan? Here, we will make this decision easy for everyone. 

Before we start comparing both companies let’s discuss some important points about them.

Xiaomi vs Huawei

Xiaomi is a simple mobile internet company that never declared itself as a pure smartphone maker. According to Xiaomi, a mobile phone is just a device for a bigger internet ecosystem. Xiaomi is building its ecosystem with MIUI, which is assembled on top of android. However, for now, we do not see much improvement in terms of functionality. They didn’t design their accessories, they just bought them from other companies and assembled them in their smartphones. 

Xiaomi has engaged a star, Hugo Barra, who used to be the VP and product spokesman of Google’s Android. He is a significant spokesperson with a strong influence on Xiaomi‘s international expansion. 

Huawei is another hand leveraged company with a strong history of manufacturing. As compared to Xiaomi, Huawei has better control over the phone manufacturing line. For now, Xiaomi is shipping out the order directly from China but Huawei leverages the local warehouse to fulfill online orders. Huawei can complete them with better speed and control but, there are many advantages and disadvantages to each arrangement, with Xiaomi capable of entering the market with speed and control.  Huawei provides many AI innovations and it has its processor user interface after banning by google Huawei developed. Now, it has its operating system which is 60% faster than google’s Android.

Huawei does not have Google support and a massive amount of downloadable apps while Xiaomi has full google support.


The hardware of both smartphones are very similar, hence let’s compare the software of both smartphones. Each company uses a distinct UI but both use the Android operating system. Xiaomi smartphones use MIUI which is far better than EMUI, used in Huawei smartphones. Huawei is still developing its own new Operating System, there is a possibility that it will not have full google support to download massive apps. Xiaomi does not have any issue like this and you can have access to google apps as much as you want. Both Xiaomi and Huawei have similar hardware support but Xiaomi has better app support than Huawei. 


 As we discussed before, Huawei has better control than Xiaomi over the phone manufacturing line. It has better build quality. It depends on the local warehouse to ship out online orders. Therefore, they have the quality in terms of fulfillment speed and service over Xiaomi, because they ship the unit directly from china. 


When you consider a smartphone with the best camera there are only a few options every year. Last year, Huawei appeared as the most powerful candidate. But, this year Xiaomi’s Mi 10 Ultra has broken the supremacy. Let’s take a closer look at the camera of both smartphones and check which one is better in the camera department. Huawei’s main camera has narrow angles that sometimes make problems and do not provide the same visual effects for landscape or building shots as the Xiaomi model provides. But, the Xiaomi Mi 10 Ultra did not suppress contour well while sharpening the images. Xiaomi’s wide-angle camera provides a stunning view but a wider angle is not everything. It leads to some disadvantages like noisy and blurry detail over the edge while the Huawei model maintains an excellent result. However, both smartphones have great zooming performance. Both phones have four to five cameras that have some advantages and disadvantages over each other. The image resolution is only the difference between these two models. 


There is a small difference between features in both companies that they used in their manufacturing line. Now, we will discuss the features that separated both mobiles. Xiaomi uses corning Gorilla glass screen protection while Huawei does not use any screen protection in their new model.  Huawei uses Li-Po 4000 mAh non-removable battery with 10W charging in their latest model while Xiaomi uses Li-Po 4500 mAh non-removable battery with fast 18W charging. Both companies provide a variety of colors so we can choose mobiles according to our desire. 

Xiaomi vs Huawei
Huawei is the third leading smartphone company in the world and Xiaomi is the 4th leading brand in the world.


Xiaomi can reach a new market with speed and without any problems of local fulfillment arrangement. But, Huawei has the capabilities to fulfill orders with better speed and control. 


Xiaomi launches smartphones at a very reasonable price. But still, this company generates enough profit because of its built-in ads that help the company to generate income. Thanks to ad income, Xiaomi can launch more models with specs and performance for such a reasonable price at lower costs. Many individuals also find these ads very disturbing. 

Huawei launches smartphones at a higher price while they also include built-in ads. Even if all the specs and performance are the same yet Huawei release their models at high rates. 

Now, it’s for you to decide which one is better. As we are sure that both smartphones will continue to play an important role in the market but we leave it to you to decide who wins the race.
