It’s hard to deny that the Mate 20 Pro is a supreme smartphone that includes some of the most radical features you’ll find on a flagship.
This device was launched late last year and arrives packing a fast Kirin 980 processor, clever triple rear camera and the ability to refill other phones via a technology called reverse wireless charging.
Another of its biggest bonuses has to be the 4,200mAh battery that’s tucked inside its glass and metal shell.
This mighty power pack offers up to two days of usage on a single charge and is certainly a major reason to consider upgrading to the Mate 20 Pro.
However, this Huawei flagship has just got major competition and it comes from a phone that costs over £600 less.
Motorola has just announced the launch of its latest Moto G7 series which includes four new devices.
Along with a standard G7 and cheaper G7 Play, Motorola has also revealed a device called the G7 Power which arrives with a giant 5,000mAh battery.
This phone boasts 2.5 days of usage on a single charge but how does it really compare to the Mate 20 Pro?
The G7 Power doesn’t hit stores until March 1 but Express.co.uk has already taken delivery of a review unit and has been able to place these phones side-by-side in an ultimate battery test.
For our power ranking we filled both the Mate 20 and G7 Power to 100 per cent then quit all apps and turned on wi-fi whilst in Airplane mode.
The screens were then set to full brightness and the YouTube app launched with the same video played for three hours.
Here’s the results.
After three hours of playback, the Mate 20 Pro still had a 31 per cent battery charge left but the Moto G7 Power came out on top with a mightily impressive 58 per cent still remaining.
It is worth noting that while Huawei’s offering does have a smaller battery, it also has an OLED display which, especially at full brightness, demands more power than the LCD technology employed by the Power’s 6.2-inch screen.
If you are after a phone that’s packed with features you’re not going to find much better than the Mate 20 Pro and this flagship has a plethora of extras you won’t find on the budget Moto Power.
But, if it’s a phone that has a giant battery and ridiculously low £179 price then the G7 Power is certainly worth a look when it launches in the UK on March 1.
We’ll be bringing you a full of review of the Moto G7 Power soon.
