Besides the newly-launched Vivo Xplay 5 Elite with 6GB RAM, recently, another 6GB RAM smartphone has been confirmed in terms of specifications, design and price. So today, we would like to put them in a comparison: Vivo Xplay 5 Elite vs Vernee Apollo!
Vernee Apollo vs Vivo Xplay 5 Elite: The best 6GB RAM battle ever!
First of all, let’s have a look at Vivo Xplay 5 Elite specs. This is the first 6GB RAM smartphone in the world and besides the whooping RAM capacity, the Elite also draws people’s attention by its other excellent features. There is a a dual-curved 5.43-inch Super AMOLED Quad HD screen, yet the special edges cannot work like Samsung Galaxy S7 edge’s. Under the hood, a Snapdragon 820 chipset, Android 5.1 Lollipop OS, 128GB ROM (non-expandable), and a 3,600mAh battery are on board to help power the whole machine. As for camera, the main one is capable of 16 megapixels with Sony IMX298 sensor, PDAF plus dual-tone LED flash. Additionally, the selfie snapper is also very good with 8 megapixels and f/2.4.
About Vernee Apollo specs, the handset sports the same remarkable 6GB RAM, 128GB ROM, and a 2K display but a bit bigger with 5.5 inches and no curved edges. Anyway, they all look handsome, right?! Apart from those similarities, there are many important differences you need to note. The Apollo is run by a 10-core Helio X20 processor, Android Marshmallow OS, and a 21MP rear/8MP front shooter combo. We can see the chips are both strong but we cannot deny that the Apollo’s operating system and primary cam are much better.
For battery comparison, we cannot tell which one is more powerful because no word has been made for the Vernee Apollo’s cell. Though, we predict it can be around 3,500mAh in order to be decent to fuel the entire device. If so, the Xplay 5 Elite can be stronger at this point. Nonetheless, we should wait a bit more for the Vernee’s confirmation to get the most correct result.
Vernee Apollo vs Vivo Xplay 5 Elite: Price and availability
Vivo Xplay 5 Elite launch happened in March and then it has gone on sale with 4,288 Yuan or $655. In fact, the Vivo Xplay 5 Elite price does seem reasonable. Yet, if we compare it to Vernee Apollo price, which is much lower at $399, we have to say the latter is the winner.
