Huawei VS Xiaomi

Huawei and Xiaomi are Chinese brands that became two of the three largest manufacturers in the world, second only to Samsung. They do this thanks to their competitive prices and the fact that in many cases, the benefits are similar, or even superior, to the mobile phones of the most expensive brands on the market, such as iPhone.
To know which brand sells the best terminals, you have to compare model by model, not all in general. Something that differentiates both brands is that Huawei manufactures its own processors (Kirin), unlike Xiaomi, which uses those from other manufacturers (Mediatek for low-end and Qualcomm's Snapdragon for mid-range and high-end). It should also be noted that the two develop a similar strategy to name the devices, something that can confuse users. Huawei uses the same name with the 'surname' Lite to refer to the lower-end models, and Pro for the high-end models; While Xiaomi adds Pro to highlight that it belongs to a mid-range or Mi if it belongs to the high-end.
Xiaomi and Huawei present some very good mobiles and affordable prices. However, if you are looking for quality-price it is better that you go to Xiaomi and if, on the contrary, you want a high-end model, we recommend Huawei. Likewise, Huawei usually has better finishes and pays more attention to detail and stability. Although Xiaomi is increasingly improving its models and this could change in the future.
Xiaomi has sub brands like Poco, Redmi etc.

Huawei has a sub brand named Honor.
None. basically rootkit you are paying for. maybe if you'll wipe the existing rom and install a custom firmware,
which as far as I know you can no longer do (there was a "developer program" which you had to apply to, and than you'll get a special code to unlock your bootloader, but that got cancelled about a year ago). The only way you can probably modify those devices is with JTAG black-box devices. better buy an old Samsung/HTC.

Price: Xiaomi launches smartphones in the market at a very reasonable price. The company is able to do so and still generate sufficient profit due to its in-built ads, which helps the company to generate revenue. Therefore, Xiaomi is able to release a lot of their models with some pretty impressive specs and performance for such a price, they can still mark them at lower costs thanks to the ad revenue. Yes, many individuals find these ads very annoying. On the other hand, Huawei does include built-in ads, hence releases smartphones at a higher price, even if all the specs are identical to Xiaomi's phone.
Software: the hardware of smartphones of both the brands are very identical hence let's compare the software. Both the company uses the Android operating system but each company uses a distinct UI. Xiaomi phones use MIUI which is better than the EMUI that is used by Huawei phones. Huawei is in the middle of developing its own new OS, but there is a possibility that it won’t have the full support of Google and its massive amount of downloadable apps after that. Xiaomi phones however don’t have this issue and you can have access to Google apps as much as you want.
Control: Huawei has stronger control over the phone manufacturing line, hence arguably with better build quality. Huawei depends on local warehouse and fulfillment facilities to ship out online orders. Therefore, they have an edge in terms of fulfillment speed and service over Xiaomi, who ships the units directly from China.
I do believe the quality of  the components of the  Xiaomi Phones are not really the best, for example when I send a voice message using Xiaomi the volume is very low, I had try different configurations but none work.
