Along with Huawei P20 Pro, the new OnePlus 6 and Xiaomi Mi Mix 2S are among the best and most interesting Chinese flagships of 2018. The last two are less expensive devices, and they offer premium specifications, although they cost hundreds of dollars less than competitors.

Because they have very similar specifications, if you want to get an affordable Chinese flagship, it can be very difficult to choose among these two devices. That's why we made this comparison OnePlus 6 и Xiaomi Mi Mix 2S.

Now let's see together what is the real king of Chinese smartphones in an affordable segment.

Despite the great efforts of OnePlus to improve the design of its flagship, Xiaomi Mi Mix 2S still convinces us of a more aesthetic appearance of the device. It is equipped with a ceramic back and front panel without front sections on the screen, which even without a cut have an incredibly high ratio between the screen and the case.

On the other hand, OnePlus 6 seems to have the best display due to Optic AMOLED technology, DCI-P3 and sRGB standards. We will not talk much about performance, because they have the same top-level hardware, so both are very fast, and you probably will not notice any differences in daily usage.

We will need to thoroughly test the camera to determine which of the best phones between OnePlus 6 and Xiaomi Mi Mix 2S, since both cameras are claimed to be outstanding. We checked the Mi Mix 2S camera with P20 Pro, and it was far from the case. Watch the video below.

For the first time in the history of OnePlus, OIS flagship functions have a dual camera with a very bright aperture (f / 1.7). It's the same for Mi Mix 2S, which can shoot photos with an amazing level of detail and record a well-stabilized video (up to 4K).

According to DxOMark, Xiaomi Mi Mix 2S is among the top ten phones. Batteries are similar, but only software optimization will show us which device will have the best battery life. Unfortunately, in both phones there is no slot for micro SD, so if you need a lot of memory to save 4K video, switch to the configuration with 256 GB of memory.

Price Xiaomi Mi Mix 2S in China is about 527 US dollars / 447 euros for the base version, and OnePlus 6 starts from 503 US dollars / 519 US dollars around the world. Since this year OnePlus 6 did not bring much innovation, I would choose Xiaomi Mi Mix 2S because of design, camera quality and MIUI.
