  • Which is a better phone between Samsung Galaxy Note 8 and Vivo NEX?

    U

    Answered By Utpala Jana | 2 months ago

    I will recommend you Vivo NEX. It comes with a faster CPU and more RAM than the Note 8 (Qualcomm Snapdragon 845 Octa-core 2.8 GHz, Quad core, Kryo 385 + 1.8 GHz, Quad core, Kryo 385) and it comes with more onboard storage. It is slimmer and still manages to pack a bigger battery (4000mAh). The Vivo NEX is an excellent smartphone which comes with some exciting features.  Overall, this is a perfect smartphone amongst the two.
