Which of the two phones is more powerful?
Huawei’s new smartphone packs a Qualcomm Snapdragon 8+ Gen 1 SoC paired with an Adreno 730 GPU and comes in two models namely the 8GB RAM + 256GB storage and the 12GB RAM + 512GB storage.
Huawei’s P60 Pro comes with a HarmonyOS 3.1 or EMUI operating system. This phone is limited to 4G and does not support 5G or Google services. (Like the Play store for example)
The iPhone 14 Pro runs on iOS 16, one of the most secure smartphone operating systems in the world. It supports 5G and features an A16 Bionic chip accompanied by a 5-core GPU.
The 14 Pro’s chipset is backed by 6GB of RAM and internal storage of 128GB, 256GB, 512GB or 1TB. The A16 Bionic in the 14 Pro is more powerful than the Snapdragon 8+ Gen 1 in the Huawei P60 Pro. The iPhone 14 Pro also comes with more storage space than its rival.
Even though the Huawei P60 Pro has more RAM, Apple’s monster is still the better performing device.
Can the Huawei P60 Pro shoot better than the iPhone 14 Pro?
The rear panel of the Huawei P60 Pro houses a 48 MP main camera paired with a 13 MP ultra wide angle sensor and a 48 MP telephoto lens. For selfies, the device has a 13 MP front camera on the front.

The Huawei P60 Pro has not yet been rated on DXOMAK. However, we know that its predecessor is in 7th place with a score of 143 points in the overall ranking of phones that offer the best camera.
On the other hand, the 1’iPhone 14 Pro stands out with a score of 146 points in 5th place. Apple has always been known for the good quality and rendering of the cameras built into its smartphones. So even if Huawei’s new phone comes with a more powerful camera than its predecessor, the iPhone 14 Pro will remain the best in terms of photography.
