The Xiaomi Mi 8 , the latest and most powerful launch of the Chinese company that recently debuted in the West officially. A few days ago we also knew what is his main rival in the race to the throne for being the 2018 Chinese best mobile . Which of the two has the best cards in its trick? ¿ OnePlus 6 or Xiaomi Mi 8 We see it below.
They are the two great titans arrived from China, OnePlus 6 and Xiaomi Mi 8 are fighting for the “loves” of those who are already faithful followers of these two brands from the East, although already with a consolidated presence in Europe. While the Xiaomi is still only available in that region while OnePlus already offers it in the West, it is a matter of time that we have both available in stores.
As always, we encourage you to enter the mobile comparator of MovilZona, where you already have the technical specifications complete of both Xiaomi Mi 8 as of OnePlus 6 with all its features, and not only can you face each other but also with the rest of smartphones on the market.
And maybe it surprises you, but really in this first element of the comparison between the Xiaomi Mi 8 and OnePlus 6, which is really the protagonist is Samsung because it is the one that provides both brands of the screens with the already famous and controversial notch. The Xiaomi Mi 8 reaches 6.21 inches while that of OnePlus 6 goes up to 6.28 inches , both are AMOLED but with resolutions of 2248 x 1080 in format 18.7: 9 and 2280 x 1080 pixels 19: 9 respectively.
That if it can be appreciated as the ” fringe “The Xiaomi Mi 8 is wider than the OnePlus 6, also because of all the technology that has been added to the front camera. Both also have a frame on the bottom and lack a sensor on the front, although it does not disappear since it is on the back (as it is also placed on the back). Xiaomi Mi 8 SE and the Xiaomi Mi 8 Explorer ).
The OnePlus 6 also has the sensor in the rear housing , but bet on the design that places it just below the camera lens. It is a matter of taste, but by way of personal appreciation, that position makes it easier to touch the glass of the camera when we put the finger than in the design of Xiaomi.
On paper, the Xiaomi Mi 8 mounts a combination of 12 MP + 12 MP with aperture f / 1.8 while OnePlus 6 opts for something more asymmetric, 16 MP + 20 MP, with f / 1.7. The camera is the element, currently, more difficult to compare as many technologies influence, especially the emergence of AI, but Xiaomi has been concerned to have the note of DxOmark the first day, and again has obtained a 99 in the global, exceeding in two points the Xiaomi Mi MIX 2S , and a 105 in the concrete aspect of the camera.
How we have not been able to prove neither one nor the other, nor have the experts of the aforementioned page, we keep the verdict of this element until we can verify which is the one that, really, makes better photos.
That is, in the case of OnePlus 6 we have a frontal camera of 16 MP and for the Xiaomi Mi 8 it goes up to 20 MP. As we said before, the notch of the Xiaomi Mi 8 reveals that there are many more things added to this element and especially related to a better facial recognition system in the terminal presented today.
The Xiaomi Mi 8 does not add to the Android One of the Chinese manufacturer but carries by flag its fork MIUI 10, based on Android 8.1 Oreo . We are not going to explain the difference between fork, ROM and Android launcher , we believe that it is already more than known by all and who does not have it clear, there you have a link where we explain it.
And is that in this comparison, this aspect also continues to be something that goes by tastes. MIUI is Android, and compatible with applications of the Google operating system, but who controls it is Xiaomi. For its part, the OxygenOS from OnePlus it does not stop being a ROM, also of Android 8.1 Oreo, an Android personalization but that is still connected and is validated by Google itself. And everyone, who chooses who will be able to save and manage their data and communications.
Entering the “engine”, both have the Snapdragon 845, which means that in performance are virtually identical since they have the same chip (and everything that this leads inside as the eight cores to 2.8 Ghz, Adreno 630, etc.). What is different is that in the case of the Xiaomi Mi 8 we have (if we consider that the Explorer version is “something else”) 6 GB of RAM and 64, 128 and 256 GB of storage while the OnePlus arrives with 6 u 8 GB of RAM for 64, 128 or 256 GB storage.
Another small difference is the battery , which in the case of Xiaomi reaches 3,400 mAh while for the OnePlus 6 it stays in 3,300 mAh . On the other hand, it should be noted that the Xiaomi Mi 8 releases a component, the double GPS Broadcom that allows a geolocation as accurate as it has a margin of error of 30 cm instead of the 5 meters that are shuffled so far.
At this point you have to be cautious. OnePlus 6 was launched around the world, with its prices set for Europe while the Xiaomi Mi 8, at the moment, has only confirmed prices in China and, as always, if we apply only the change can be somewhat cheating.
Made this proviso, the Xiaomi Mi 8 has these prices:
For its part, the OnePlus 6 has these prices (and to be able to compare, those that had output in China):
Especially seeing the price that had exit in China, it is expected that in Europe the Xiaomi Mi 8 have a much more competitive offer than its great rival for being the 2018 Chinese best mobile.
