Phones manufacturers, after a long time of stagnation, started to deliver devices with impressive new features and technological breakthroughs. Vivo NEX Dual Display, Xiaomi Mi Mix 3 and Samsung Galaxy A8s are perfect examples of this kind of product and this is a technical specs comparison which will let you discover out which is the best.
With these products, Vivo, Xiaomi and Samsung adopted three alternative solutions to get rid of the notch and thick bezels. Vivo NEX Dual Display opts for a dual display which makes guys use the rear camera setup as a camera for selfies too, Xiaomi Mi Mix 3 has a slider design with digital cameras and sensors all bundled in a pop-up slider, and Samsung Galaxy A8s features a hole in the display for the front camera. There is not a solution which can be defined better than each other, but I would personally go for the Xiaomi Mi Mix 3 because of its much better materials: 7000 series aluminum for the frame and ceramic for the back.
Under the hood, Xiaomi Mi Mix 3 is a true flagship with the high strong parts, at least in its most expensive variant. It arrives with Qualcomm Snapdragon 845, up to 10 GB of RAM and up to 256 GB of internal storage. Vivo NEX Dual Display has same the similar hardware unless of course for the internal storage which is 128 GB, while Samsung Galaxy A8s is just an upper-midrange device with its Sd 710, but it is the only one to sport a micro SD slot to expand the internal storage. All these devices come with custom user interfaces based on Android Pie out of the box.
Xiaomi Mi Mix 3 has maybe the best panel when it comes to viewing good quality, but Vivo NEX Dual Display has 2 displays and that is why I would select it. The secondary panel permits for a much better power saving as effectively as a extra comfortable one-handed use. Samsung Galaxy A8s has the most disappointing display, it is the only last-gen cameraphone from the Galaxy A series to sport a classic IPS panel rather of a Super AMOLED one.
Sad to say, we still had no possibility to test the digital cameras of Samsung Galaxy A8s and Vivo NEX Dual Display, so we can not give any verdict When it comes their digital camera department. But we know that Xiaomi Mi Mix 3 is among the best camera phones out there even though it does not have a triple digital camera like its opponents. So it will be very hard to bring down. Further, it has an incredibile dual camera for selfies.
Xiaomi Mi Mix 3 has a too compact battery which disappointed us in some outlines. 3200 mAh is not abundant for a flagship introduced in the second half of 2018 (unless it comes from Sony). Vivo NEX Dual Display has 3500 mAh and on the paper, it need to give the longest battery life due to its compact secondary screen with a low energy utilization. But Samsung Galaxy A8s often optimizes its midranges’ batteries really effectively, so it could even be that it will last far more than its rival from Vivo if the company did a specially nice job.
You can take a piece of Xiaomi Mi Mix 3 globally for just Usd560, Vivo NEX Dual Display costs Usd720 in China, while we yet do not know the price tag of Samsung Galaxy A8s. With the actual data Vivo NEX Dual Display is the most convincing handset, but we yet have to test it and evaluate Galaxy A8s’ value for money to give a final judgment. Which one would you choose basing on the specs on the paper?
