If you still like full-screen display, you will love the Asus Zenfone 7. Thanks to its flip-up camera, it has a display with no notch and no holes. If you desire the highest screen-to-body ratio, then you should go for the Huawei Mate 40 sporting a punch-hole display. The Huawei Mate 40 also provides the best build quality as it is waterproof with the IP68 certification. But all the phones come with a premium design composed of a glass back and an aluminum frame, so you always get an elegant look and a great build quality.
Besides having a full-screen display, the Asus Zenfone 7 also provides an amazing image quality. It has an AMOLED display with a wide 6.67-inch diagonal, the HDR10+ certification, a 90 Hz refresh rate, and a high 700 nit brightness. The silver medal goes to the Huawei Mate 40 sporting an AMOLED display with a 90 Hz refresh rate and HDR10. These evaluations are based on the specs on the paper. We discard the Xiaomi Mi 10T Pro because despite offering a 144 Hz refresh rate, it has an IPS display instead of an OLED panel. But this does not mean Xiaomi Mi 10T Pro does not have a pretty nice display, especially for gamers.
The most interesting device in terms of hardware is the Huawei Mate 40 because it packs the Kirin 9000E chipset built at 5 nm. It is one of the first SoCs built at 5 nm and it has an integrated 5G modem. The Huawei Mate 40 also offers 8 GB of RAM and up to 256 GB of UFS 3.1 native storage. Xiaomi Mi 10T Pro and Asus Zenfone 7 offer the same memory configurations, but they are fueled by the Snapdragon 865 mobile platform. In each case, you get Android 10 out of the box, but the Huawei Mate 40 customized by the EMUI 11 lacks Google Play Services in the global market.
If you need the best camera you should grab a unit of the Huawei Mate 40 as it is the top camera phone of this trio. It sports a triple camera including a 50 MP main sensor, a telephoto lens with OIS and optical zoom, and a 16 MP ultrawide sensor. Right after, we got the Xiaomi Mi 10T Pro: it lacks a telephoto sensor, but it has an amazing 108 MP main sensor with OIS. Despite the Asus Zenfone 7 loses the photo quality comparison it deserves to be considered because of its flip-up camera allowing to use the rear cameras as front cameras too. With the Asus Zenfone 7, you get a 64 MP main sensor, a telephoto sensor with 3x optical zoom, and a 12 MP ultrawide sensor.
Xiaomi Mi 10T Pro and Asus Zenfone 7 have the same battery capacity: 5000 mAh. But Asus Zenfone 7 lasts more in a lot of scenarios because it has an AMOLED display and a lower refresh rate. It even supports reverse charging.
Xiaomi Mi 10T Pro is priced at €599 in its base variant, Asus Zenfone 7 starts from €699/$699, Huawei still did not reveal the global price of the Mate 40. If we exclude the battery life, Huawei Mate 40 is actually a better handset, but the lack of Google services does not make it suitable for everyone. Asus Zenfone 7 and Xiaomi Mi 10T Pro are not very different: the former has a better display and allows using the main cameras as front cameras, while the latter has a better main camera sensor. Asus Zenfone 7 looks more interesting to me, but it costs more.
