    A

    Answered By Archita Sandeep | 27 days ago

    Xiaomi Poco F1 is can cost around 30% as compared to Honor 8X. However, considering the features. Xiaomi Poco F1 does have a stronger configuration (Faster processor + More RAM), a bit higher resolution front camera and a bit more battery capacity with quick charging support.

    In case, stronger configuration and quick charging do not matter much to you, then you should think of choosing Honor 8X and spend your money wisely.
