Phones manufacturers, whenever a long time of stagnation, started to make 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 specs comparison which will let you discover out which is the best.
With these products, Vivo, Xiaomi and Samsung adopted 3 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 and style with digital cameras and sensors all included 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 most powerful 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 memory. Vivo NEX Dual Display has same the same hardware unless of course for the internal memory which is 128 GB, while Samsung Galaxy A8s is just an upper-midrange product with its Snapdragon 710, but it is the only one to sport a micro SD slot to extend the internal memory. All these gadgets come with custom user interfaces based on Android Pie out of the box.
Xiaomi Mi Mix 3 has maybe the best display whenever it comes to viewing good quality, but Vivo NEX Dual Display has two displays and that is why I would choose 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 instead of a Super AMOLED one.
Sadly, we still had no possibility to test the cameras of Samsung Galaxy A8s and Vivo NEX Dual Display, so we can not give any verdict When it comes their 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 pretty hard to bring down. Further more, it has an incredibile dual digital camera for selfies.
Xiaomi Mi Mix 3 has a too compact battery which disappointed us in few outlines. 3200 mAh is not sufficient 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 should supply the longest battery life due to its smaller secondary panel with a low power utilization. But Samsung Galaxy A8s often optimizes its midranges’ batteries really effectively, so it might even be that it will last far more than its rival from Vivo if the company did a very good job.
You can get a item of Xiaomi Mi Mix 3 globally for just $560, Vivo NEX Dual Display costs Usd720 in China, even though we yet do not know the value tag of Samsung Galaxy A8s. With the plain 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 select basing on the specifications on the paper?
