According to our opinion
As we know Xiaomi is on first position in terms of best performance, camera quality, long battery playback and it’s affordable price. But within few months Asus is performing the best in smartphone’s race according to future’s need. Xiaomi is using same strategy to attract people without using new improvement, Asus is developing new technology in their smartphones, such as Fast Charging, AI Charging, Notch display like iPhone X and up to 2TB expandable storage with microSD card. Asus ZenFone 5Z is a competitor of OnePlus 6, but Xiaomi doesn’t have.
So if you want to purchase like OnePlus’s featured smartphone with Rs 35,000 you can purchase Asus ZenFone 5X, You would not get latest android updates as fast OnePlus. So i would recommend you OnePlus 6 (Rs 34,999 6GB+64GB).
