OnePlus 6 offers a great experience with regular updates and Clutter-free homepage. It also offers the on-screen buttons for a gesture like iPhone X but is not that stable and smooth like that of an Apple product.


The Vivo x21 Funtouch OS 4.0 is heavily inspired by Apple’s IOS and provides a ton of personalization. The inspiration to the Apple’s IOS also paved way for a learning curve to provide an Apple-like software.

Mi 8 will run on Xiaomi’s MIUI skin on top of Android 8.1 Oreo and is also packed with a Xiao AI voice assistant. Although Mi 8 works fine with the regular updates on the Android but there is always a chance of certain glitches.


Winner: OnePlus 6

4. Biometrics

 OnePlus 6 comes with the conventional Biometric scanner located on the back of the device under the Camera module. Although its size has been reduced to take a rectangular shape it offers no lags and works without any worries. In case of facial recognition system OP6 works like a charm.


With the launch of Vivo x21 latest In screen fingerprint technology, the whole tech world is in the state of shock, x21 does not take any space on the screen for the fingerprint scanner as Vivo has included the scanner in the screen itself which works as a fingerprint scanner when the phone is locked and works normally after the unlocking of phone.

Although it takes a little more time than the conventional backside fingerprint scanner locks but that can be neglected as it is the onset of a new era in the field of technology.


Xiaomi Mi 8 also offers an In display fingerprint scanner much like Vivo x21 but hasn’t detailed whether they are using the same Synaptics sensor as Vivo, the In display fingerprint is located on the lower end of the front screen same as x21 but as of now we cannot say anything about it as it is yet to be released.


Winner: Vivo x21

The OP6 is made of an all-glass design made of Gorilla glass 5 which has the same form factor as of Vivo. OnePlus 6 offers a variety of colors to choose from but the gorgeous “Midnight Black” model offers a more classic finish that reflects back your face much like Matte Black MacBook Pro that was launched a couple of years ago.

With the latest features Vivox21 offers, it also gives  great ergonomic design features and comes with a dreaded notch on top which curves itself around the edges which are metallic. The glass finish at the rear end gives a premium feel to the users. The main shortcoming of the x21 is the missing Gorilla glass.

Carved out from the significant piece of glass Mi 8 also comes with a metallic bezel-less centerpiece that joins the front and back. And it fronts looks a lot like iPhone X especially with a notch.


Winner: Vivo x21

[su_divider top=”no” style=”dotted” divider_color=”#ef6546″ margin=”10″]


OnePlus 6 is powered by octa-core Snapdragon 845 chip with a processor of 2.8GHz with 6 GB of RAM and 64GB of onboard storage which is enough for a daily user. It has a type-C charging port which has become a norm for faster charging.


Vivo x21 takes a hit in the hardware section as it only offers  Snapdragon 660 processor with 6GB of RAM and 128GB onboard storage with no lag whatsoever. Vivo comes with the older micro USB charging port which shows how the company has effectively cut short in pricing.


The Mi 8 comes with a Snapdragon 845 processor with 8GB RAM and 128GB storage and comes with a dual frequency GPS that apparently “eliminates interference from buildings and reduces signal delays which increases the accuracy of navigating”.Comes with a USB Type-C which will be used for audio out, charging and data syncing.
