To begin with, the Asus 8Z is a smaller flagship device than the Xiaomi 11T and iQOO 9. The Asus 8z, on the other hand, is ideal for those looking for a lightweight device with a 5.9-inch AMOLED display. Furthermore, the Qualcomm Snapdragon 888 chipset powers the smartphone, which makes the choice a little hazy because Qualcomm also offers better chipsets, Snapdragon 888+ and Snapdragon 8 Gen 1. It should be noted that the iQoo 9 offers a better and faster Snapdragon 888+, whereas Xiaomi is also dependable on the 888 SoC. However, Xiaomi also supports 120W HyperCharge fast charging. Whereas Asus offers 30W Fast Charge, iQoo also has 120W FlashCharge – rapid charging capabilities.
In terms of cameras, each of the three devices has a unique setup. Nonetheless, the Xiaomi has a more powerful 108MP main sensor, while the other two have 64MP and 48MP sensors, respectively.
To be honest, Xiaomi (Xiaomi 11T Pro review) appears to be a better option because it has a larger and better display. If the camera is important to you, either Xiaomi or iQoo should be considered. Furthermore, both of these devices have multiple storage variants, the most recent chipsets, and support fast charging, which the Asus 8Z clearly lacks. The Asus 8z is a good choice if you want a small and light phone with a nearly stock Android experience.
So, if we had to choose, we’d go with the Xiaomi 11T Pro if you’re looking for a feature-packed phone under Rs 40,000.
