Symphony Helio 80 Advantages
Firstly, it comes with a strong 5th gen. Gorilla Glass display protection. So, if you are one of those who drop their phones often, this is the one to pick. Both front and back cameras are better here with more vibrant colors, more details, better background and so on. You also get better video recording quality with EIS for Full HD recording with a back camera, a very important feature for many.
Symphony is without any doubt winning big time in regards to performance with a much faster Helio G99 chipset. If gaming and better, smoother, more stable day-to-day performance is your thing, this is what you must pick. You also get a noise-cancellation microphone. It’s great for outdoor calls or voice recording.
Xiaomi Redmi 12 Advantages
Firstly, it’s Xiaomi so, the software is trusted and well-developed. Furthermore, you can expect Android 14 to 15 upgrades in the future. The design looks pretty nice and elegant. We liked the design of Redmi 12 better although the Symphony design is also nice as well. Yes, there is no 120Hz refresh rate or AMOLED panel but the display color tone of Redmi 12 is simply gorgeous and a 90Hz refresh rate is enough for most. It is a bit bigger display as well.
There is splash resistance so, you’ll feel more safe under light rain or putting it on your dining table and so on.
Despite the fact that Xiaomi is offering some real good deals on the Redmi 12, we pick Symphony Helio 80 as the winner considering its overall and more important specs.
