To make a choice between these phones, you need to make an important decision: do you want a cutout at the top of the screen or not? The Huawei P20 Lite has an incision and narrower frames, while the Nubia Z18 does not have a notch, but the ratio between the screen and the case is lower.

In other respects, both phones have a wonderful design with a refined glass back and an aluminum frame. What makes the Nubia Z18 Mini better is its hardware, as it consists of a higher-performance chipset (8-core Qualcomm Snapdragon 660) and 2GB of RAM more than its opponent. So, Nubia Z18 Mini works faster, and it should behave better when multitasking.

Both phones have a dual rear camera, but we still can not tell you which one is better in terms of photo and video quality, since the Z18 Mini has just been introduced to the market. However, the front camera should be better on Huawei P20 Lite with a resolution of 16 Mp.

On the other hand, the Nubia Z18 Mini has a large battery and given that the Snapdragon 660 is usually well optimized, it should also have a longer battery life. Huawei P20 Lite is actually available for purchase in the global market with an online price of about 371 US Dollars, and Nubia Z18 Mini - in China with an initial price of $ 286. In our opinion, the Z18 Mini is actually the best choice, and also has a higher price-performance ratio.
