Oppo A58 Advantages
Many would say that the design is a subjective experience. Yes, we agree to a certain degree. But there are patterns of beauty that can be recognized. We can see that Oppo placed some concentration on developing a newer, more elegant design whereas the Xiaomi design matches many of their old phone’s designs and looks pretty flat. Some probably would like the nostalgic feel of the Xiaomi design and it has value as well given that its predecessors ruled the market for a few years in a row now. Despite that, for us, Oppo wins in terms of design.
Then you are getting a waterproof body, a feature only a very few phones will offer around this price. But that’s about it.
Xiaomi Redmi Note 12 Advantages
If you look at the table above, Xiaomi has won in almost all sectors already from camera to performance, display and even price.
Redmi Note 12 is the clear winner except for the design and waterproof feature. But Xiaomi does offer splash resistance which can tolerate minor waterdrops and the design is also decent.
