Mumbai, March 23: The Smartphone segment gets smarter and competitive by the day and the launch of Vivo V9 has made the mid-budget smartphone segment spicier. The Vivo V9 was launched in India today on March 23, with great focus on its camera and display.

So as you can see, the competition in the full screen or near full-screen phones is getting intense with every passing day as phones try to imitate the iPhone X notch. But the customers won't be complaining about the phones with 18:9 or 19:9 ratio cost fraction of what the iPhone does.

Which phone to buy depends completely on your need and priority. If premium camera and selfies are what you want from a phone, then opt for Vivo V9 and Oppo F7, they also come with a sleek design but if performance and durability are what you are looking for, then Mi MIX 2 should be in your cart. However, the Mi Mix 2 faces tough competition from OnePlus 5 as they both are priced in the same range.
