Xiaomi Mi 8 was recently launched and it’s taking smartphone industry by storm. There aren’t that many Android smartphones which can compare against the likes of iPhone X, but it seems like Xiaomi Mi 8 might just be able to get the job done. With that being said, today we are going to pin Xiaomi Mi 8 and iPhone X against each other and see which one comes out on top.
The biggest similarity between Xiaomi Mi 8 and iPhone X is their top-notch display. Therefore, we are going to start with the display technology. iPhone X is renowned for its sleek looking 5.8-inch OLED Super Retina display that features a high pixel resolution of 2,436 x 1,125 and 458ppi. On the other hand, Xiaomi Mi 8 ships with a larger 6.21-inch AMOLED panel which features a slightly smaller Full HD pixel resolution of 2,248 x 1,080 and 402ppi.
Leaving the display technology aside, hardware power is all that really matters when it comes to high-end smartphones such as Xiaomi Mi 8 and iPhone X. Xiaomi Mi 8 is fueled by Qualcomm’s latest Snapdragon 845 CPU which is paired with 6GB of RAM and 64GB/128GB or 256GB of internal storage space.
Apple equipped its flagship smartphone with its own-made hexa-core A11 Bionic CPU which is known to be more powerful than Xiaomi Mi 8’s Snapdragon 845. On the downside of things, iPhone X’s CPU is paired with only 3GB of RAM and 64GB/256GB of internal storage space.
From the looks of it, Apple’s high-end iPhone X is the device which has the upper hand in this brief comparison. However, we should mention that iPhone X is priced at $999 while Xiaomi Mi 8 can be purchased for only $420 which gives it a great advantage.
