Asus seems poised to take on OnePlus and we therefore expect them to undercut OnePlus prices by a significant margin, making it one of the cheapest Snapdragon 845 phones around. It has a 6.59-inch amoled display giving it a screen to body ratio of 91%.

The Xiaomi Mi A2 runs stock Android which entitles it to receive Android Pie when it starts rolling out for devices other than Google Pixel. But with a better processor, Quick Charge 4.0 and other appealing specifications and features, the Xiaomi Mi A2 holds its own against the likes of Vivo V9 and the Samsung Galaxy J8.
