What's on the link that you posted is not focusing on P20 Pro but rather focusing on P20. This Weekly poll is for the Pro model not for the regular P20.
Huawei over Xiaomi
The Huawei feels more comfortable in hands, Trippe camera and better chipset too
leledumbo, 25 Mar 2018Where is "here"? That sounds ridiculous to factory lock a device for any reason.probably he mean locked bootloader ( google policy), mi phones sometimes it can be pain in the a*s, IIRC we need to instal mi unlocker > login account for that phone > follow the wizard to get code, sometimes we failed because used wrong version of the unlocker, sometimes bcause distributor rom, sometimes we need to wait loooong time to get approved, sometimes it's just god know why, expert can use unofficial method (oem unlock ? flash patched official rom? test point?). my last xperia phone also need code to unlock, easier tho
leledumbo, 25 Mar 2018Where is "here"? That sounds ridiculous to factory lock a device for any reason.let him... he didnt know what he speak... xiaomi have locked bootloaders witch you unlock if you send a request , wait about 10 days and download mi unlock tool... than you change your rom and it will not be bricked... anyway for me P20 pro wins for a few reasons...
1) Leica branding,40MP,5x loseless zoom...
2)Xiaomi is very poor in Android version updates...
3)Most of Xiaomi devices landed in europe have fake reseller rom on top so you must put some affort right from the box to install official rom...
4)(If i am right) Xiaomi says that design will be familiar to Mix 2 ... So no cutout for camera it will be on the bezell witch makes 2s not worth upgrading from Mix 2 (design wise),on the other hand performance of Mix 2 are still enough for anything you can do with 845...
If I consider the Photos as authentic, Xiaomi is Mine.
Xiaomi is closer to my need than any other available phones in the market. Apple Notch is not my watching favorite. The Front Camera placement is in Black Bar of 64:27 movies. Neither Top-Bottom, Nor Side Bezels.
Anyway For me:
GFXBench 4.0 (Car Scene) is a fairly reliable source to squeeze out the power of GPU.
When in Gear Club, the GPU ability to fully render scenes from rooftop of the car to the horizon is the most important factor to be considered. 30fps is what I need to watch the scene completely rendered. (Under 30fps encounter Mis-Rendering, which is half baked special effects and some times mountain peaks are pixelated too.)
Watching 64:27(21:9) movies less black bar and obstacle less sides are Ideal.
Imagine, put a vase in left or right side of your TV and Watch movies?!?!
Listening to 320kbps tracks via wireless headphones is what my working condition needs.
Surf the web is possible with anything, so this is not among criteria. but Top-Notch will waste spaces in screenshots. FHD+ is not as useful as QHD+ in instant screenshot and send to Surface Hub or any massive displays.
Low Light Photographs for documentation is in my extreme focus.
4K@60fps in order to be a bit future proof and use frames in case of missing photographs. If not, I should think again!
Long Life Battery with Fast Charge (Time is precious)
Video Conference is what a good 5MP Front Camera can handle. (Not a selfie fan)
Many contents to carry around = Massive Internal Storage (256GB+)
Multi-tasking (Not Gaming) = More than 4GB LPDDR4X RAM (6GB is more than enough)
Black Color in order to be fit on the black theme.
Google Services/ Fast Location approach/ Fast Wi-Fi/ 4.5G are what every high end phones must have.
I'll go with the Mi Mix 2s this time. Im only excited for the camera of the P20 Pro but Mi Mix 2s has a lot of hidden secrets to be revealed on that day.
none of the two. Also with one day the phone has x feature, and next day another rumor says it doesn't, it's really difficult to mantain any "excitation" ;p

the image in the ring is the Mix 2 not the 2s... having said that the 2s has a tiny little cut-out in the top right corner for the camera, which gets my vote over the P20 Pro... however i'd prefer if manufacturers continue to persist with the bezeless designs that they lose the front camera altogether and have a screen on the back for selfies.

In addition to the two phones, you should put "Neither" as a third option. It would be interesting to see which option would get the most votes.

Also the P20 has only 4gb Ram,no headphone jack and no IP67/68.
What's so interesting about that ?
And i said about p20 and p10 lite models having bad cameras.The mate 10 series have amazing cameras in their segment.
I don't like anyone of them, they both have a notch and also without a 3.5 mm jack
But I am interested in how good is Huawei's 3 rear cameras and its 24 MP front camera is.
If I had to buy a phone with a notch then I would prefer Xiaomi's solution.
Mix 2s is the same design a Mix 2 , which is a worse Mix 1 ... how can it exicte aynone?
ZloiYuri, 25 Mar 2018Compare two phones that differs twice in price? Are you serious?Xiaomi Mi Mix 2 here costs same as Mate 10 and the Huawei P10 Plus.Unless you find Mi mix 2 from a shady seller online (such as GearBest) that will sell you a partially working device without warranty,no global ram and country border taxes will charge you 30% of the starting price you won't find it for less money.
Their prices shouldn't be more different than 100-120$ in favor of P20 being more expensive.

On the subjective side Huawei cameras are top 10 , 5 even sounds like you have serious bias against Huawei
