Which is the right one for you?

Starting with the Lenovo Z5 Pro, it’s significantly cheaper and basically provides users flagship features on a budget with an exception in performance. Yes, it comes with a premium midrange Snapdragon 710 but it’s more than enough in everyday tasks as well as Fortnite or PUBG Mobile gaming. Additionally, you’re getting a slider with four cameras and under the display fingerprint scanner.

Comparing the Honor Magic 2 and Xiaomi Mi Mix 3, the latter feels outdated due to the updated SoC and whopping six cameras of the former. Not to mention, Huawei’s brand sister even threw in an incredible 40W charging rate. But should you feel the need for that 10GB RAM and wireless charging privilege, Xiaomi’s affordable flagship won’t disappoint you.
