This April is so busy but we love it since many 4GB RAM flagships will go on sale, including Samsung Galaxy A9 Pro (2016), Xiaomi Mi5 Pro, and Huawei P9 Max. Let’s see how they can compete in the following comparison!

Looking at the table, we can notice the phones’ similarities easily. For example, all of them have the same powerful 4GB RAM, the latest Android Marshmallow OS, fantastic camera combos, dual SIMs, and fingerprint scanners. Though, there are also many important differences we need to note. First of all, it is display. Both Huawei P9 Max and Samsung Galaxy A9 Pro are big phablets with around 6.0-inch screens. But if you prefer something handier, Xiaomi Mi5 Pro is the perfect choice. In terms of resolution, P9 Max is definitely the winner thanks to sporting 2K res.
As for processor, we think Snapdragon 652, Snapdragon 820 and Kirin 950 are all strong to perform any task you want, yet the SD820 can slightly have advantages. About ROM capacity, the Mi5 Pro is the champion once again, up to 128GB of internal storage. However, it does not support a microSD card slot to expand the memory. Anyway, we guess 128GB is already much enough for everything. Do you agree?
In the final paragraph, we would like to talk about battery and camera. No doubt the A9 Pro is the best here because of its massive 5,000mAh cell. You can use the phone in more than 3 days. So cool, rite?! And for main camera, both A9 Pro and Mi5 Pro own 16MP shooters which are great, yet we think the P9 Max’s dual 12MP rear snapper is more special. On the orther hand, when it comes to selfies, we cannot tell you exactly which one is the strongest. Although P9 Max and A9 Pro have 8MP sensors which surely can produce gorgeous pics of yourself, the Mi5 Pro’s 4MP UltraPixel sensor is not something they should look down on. Mi5 Pro’s secondary snapper can totally bring high-res selfies with high contrast and pleasant colors. So, in the end, it is pretty hard for us to pick out the winner. Can you help us?
