We tested both the device on the basis of that we make some important facts about these phones such as:
- The under-display fingerprint scanner unlocks the display in a few milliseconds.
- 30W VOOC flash charge 4.0 charges the phone from 0-100 in about 60min.
- 4015 mAh gives you almost full day backup if you are not a heavy user.
- Performance-wise, both the phones are average at their price segments because, at this pricing, other companies offer the best features.
- In the camera department, both perform well enough.
However, both the devices are not waterproof. They do come with the latest specs and technology features, but it’s sad to see the company not offering splashproof or waterproof capabilities to this smartphone.
