Pixel 3 XL performs better in Open GL 3.1 but in Vulcan it lost to Huawei Mate 20 Pro. In fact, on the benchmark itself, there is a warning saying that Vulkan performance can be lower than expected on some devices because of unoptimized drivers.
The 3 benchmarks gave us an idea how well the devices performed. As Pixel 3 XL is based on the Snapdragon 845, other smartphones based on the same chipset should perform on par.
Pixel 3 XL outperformed in 3DMark and PCMark while losing out in ANTUTU to the Huawei Mate 20 Pro.
At the end of the day, performance aside, the user experience is more important.
