Like last year, when Samsung unveiled the Galaxy Z Fold4, Xiaomi could not remain silent. The wonderful Xiaomi Mix Fold 2, a product that has nothing to envy of the greatest folding phones on the market, was created by the Chinese company. However, several businesses debuted foldable phones that can convert into tablets this year besides Samsung and Xiaomi. Even Vivo introduced its first foldable phone, the Vivo X Fold, a few months ago. Even though it is the Blue Factory’s first foldable, it has no compromises and is completely capable of competing with the finest. Due to this, we decided to write a comparison of the key features of the Vivo X Fold vs Xiaomi Mix Fold 2. If you’re interested in learning more, please do so.
Additionally, we’ll provide you with a brief overview of the two foldable cellphones we’ll be talking about today:
With a folding display on the inside and an extra display on the outside, the Xiaomi Mix Fold 2 and the Vivo X Fold have the same form factor. Which, however, is the most attractive? Because the Xiaomi Mix Fold 2 is narrower and lighter than its competitor and has a smaller camera module, I personally like it. It weighs 262 grams and has a thickness of just 5.4mm when unfurled. The Vivo X Fold is not overly thick or hefty, but it is still a stunning folding phone. The two handsets may be positioned at various angles depending on the usage circumstances thanks to the strong, resilient hinge mechanisms. Both devices have a nano-SIM slot, nevertheless, only Xiaomi has a dual SIM slot; you can only use one SIM card in the Vivo, and it doesn’t even support eSIM.
Regarding the internal folding display, the Xiaomi Mix Fold 2 appears to have a superior panel, at least on paper. It is an AMOLED display with LTPO 2.0 technology, allowing for up to one billion colors and an adjustable refresh rate from 1 to 120Hz, much like the most sophisticated flagship-class panels. With a size of 8.02″ Quad HD+ resolution of 1914 x 2160 pixels, HDR10+ certification, Dolby Vision compatibility, and a maximum brightness of 1,300 nits, the foldable display comes equipped with these specifications. AMOLED display with Full HD+ resolution of 1080 x 2520 pixels, HDR10+ certification, Dolby Vision, and a 6.56-inch diagonal is present on the outside. The inside screen of the Vivo X Fold is a 6.53″ AMOLED display with a Full HD+ resolution and a 120Hz refresh rate, while the exterior panel is an 8.03-inch foldable AMOLED display with a 2K resolution, a 120 Hz refresh rate, and the HDR10+ certification.
SPECIFICATIONS & PERFORMANCE
Choose the Xiaomi Mix Fold 2 without a second thought if you’re seeking the most cutting-edge hardware. First of all, it is equipped with the Snapdragon 8+ Gen 1 mobile platform, the greatest Qualcomm processor to date. It is a 4 nm SoC with an octa-core architecture made up of a Cortex X2 CPU operating at a maximum speed of 3.19 GHz, three Cortex A710 CPUs operating at a maximum speed of 2.75 GHz, four Cortex A510 CPUs operating at a maximum speed of 1.8 GHz, and an Adreno 730 GPU. There is more internal storage than the Vivo X Fold, which only has 512 GB, thanks to the chipset’s combination with 12GB of RAM and up to 1TB of internal storage. Additionally, the Snapdragon 8 Gen 1 mobile platform of the X Fold is inferior. While the Vivo runs Origin OS Ocean based on Android 12, the Xiaomi Mix Fold 2 has an intriguing MIUI customization made just for folding phones.
Although the Xiaomi Fold 2 triumphs in the display and hardware comparison, the Vivo X Fold is unquestionably superior in terms of the cameras. It sports a quadruple rear camera system with a 48MP ultrawide sensor, a 12MP telephoto lens with 2x optical zoom, an 8MP periscope lens with 5x optical zoom, and a 50MP primary sensor with OIS and laser autofocus. Only a 50MP primary camera with OIS, an 8MP telephoto lens with 2x optical zoom, and a 13MP ultrawide sensor are included with the Xiaomi.
The Vivo X Fold is the only one with wireless charging, reaching a wireless charging power of 50W, in addition to having a slightly larger battery with a capacity of 4600 mAh. In the battery comparison, it prevails.
