Pro vs Pro: How does Vivo X100 Pro compare to iQOO 12 Pro?
The recently launched iQOO 12 Pro stands as a true competitor to the Vivo X100 Pro, as both of them start at the same price. However, iQOO’s device has the Snapdragon 8 Gen 3 while Vivo X100 Pro has the Dimensity 9300 processor. So if you have a preference for either of these chipsets, you already have your choice finalised.
On the other hand, we feel the Vivo X100 Pro has a better camera setup judging by the specifications of the sensors. The Pro model of Vivo X100 further has a bigger battery cell as well. The only advantage iQOO 12 Pro has over the Vivo X100 Pro, is that it has 16GB RAM in the base model whereas Vivo’s device has 12GB.
