  • Which phone is better between Oppo Find X, Vivo NEX, Samsung Galaxy S9 Plus and OnePlus 6?

    V

    Answered By Varija Mehra | 3 months ago
    I will recommend you to go for the Galaxy S9 Plus. The S9 Plus comes with a screen resolution of 1,440 x 2,960 pixels which is the highest amongst all (other three phones). It is the only phone (as compared to the rest of the three) which supports expandable storage. The cameras on the S9 Plus offer a dual aperture of f/1.5 and f/2.4, and can automatically switch between them depending upon the ambient light.  Inside the smartphone, there are two Quad-Core (2.7GHz M2 Mongoose and 1.7GHz Cortex A53) processors. A stylish looking smartphone from the topmost brand with such great elements makes it a perfect buy.

  • Which is a better phone between Vivo Nex and OnePlus 6?

    U

    Answered By Utpala Jana | 3 months ago
    Both the phones come with the same specifications but I will recommend you to go for OnePlus 6. The OnePlus 6 is lighter as compared to the Vivo Nex (by around 22g). The OnePlus 6 offers better camera i.e.16 MP + 20 MP Dual Primary Cameras and 1.7 F Physical Aperture for better low light photos. And also, it supports NFC and DLNA (DLNA is used for connecting to a DLNA TV over WiFi).
