iPhone 14 or wait for 15? Vivo foldable screen review?
【PhoneAuto】Recently, major brands have successively held press conferences and many new products have been launched. Among them, vivo’s latest product, the vivo X Flip, has attracted the attention of many female consumers. However, its market positioning, price, configuration, and other aspects highly overlap with OPPO’s Find N2 Flip, inevitably leading people to compare them. And choosing between these two models has become a difficult problem for consumers.

As the release date of the new generation of iPhones approaches, there are more and more news about this new device. Among them, insiders have revealed that the iPhone 15 series may increase in price by 20% due to cost issues, while the price of the iPhone 14 series is gradually decreasing over time. This has caused many iPhone users who plan to upgrade their devices to hesitate whether they should wait for the new iPhone or purchase the iPhone 14 series now. After all, Apple removed the iPhone 13 Pro series from the market to avoid internal competition after the release of the iPhone 14 series last year.
The May Day holiday is approaching, and many people have planned where to travel, and taking photos is an essential part of any trip. Although DSLR cameras have excellent shooting effects, their large size and difficulty in use do not appeal to most people. In the current mobile phone market, the camera modules of mobile phones are already excellent and sufficient for non-professionals. However, the shooting effects of the rear camera modules of different models are also different. When traveling, I believe that most people take more portrait photos, so having a phone with a good portrait mode becomes particularly important.

With the continuous development of the mobile game market, many game players have been increasingly attracted by the well-made mobile games and gradually “abandoned” PC games. After all, the graphics of mobile games are now no worse than ordinary PC games on the market, and the convenience of being able to play anytime, anywhere has also widened the gap between mobile games and PC games. The 3000 yuan price range is the purchase budget of many mobile game players, so what “gaming phones” are worth recommending in this price range?
1. How to choose between vivo X Flip and OPPO Find N2 Flip? 2. I heard that iPhone 15 will increase in price. Should I buy the iPhone 14 now? 3. Going out for May Day holiday, any recommendations for smartphones with good portrait mode? 4. Which phones around 3000 yuan are suitable for mobile gamers?
As a favorite of female users, vivo and OPPO have both launched vertically folding screen phones, namely vivo X Flip and OPPO Find N2 Flip. So, which phone should you choose? Mobile China cannot give everyone a completely clear answer here, after all, everyone’s preferences are different. But we can analyze comprehensively to make it clear to everyone the differences between these two phones.
In terms of appearance, vivo and OPPO are very similar, not only in appearance but also in color matching, with three colors: purple, black, and gold. The external screen of vivo X Flip is placed horizontally and the back cover is made of plain leather material, with special texture processing, which feels very textured. The external screen of OPPO Find N2 Flip is placed vertically, more like a small screen phone, and the back cover is made of glossy glass material, with excellent hand and texture.
vivo X Flip
In terms of screen, the external screen of vivo X Flip is 3.0 inches, and it becomes 6.74 inches after unfolding the internal screen, with a screen ratio similar to that of ordinary phones. It has HDR10+ and 1 billion colors, with outstanding display effect, and supports 120Hz adaptive refresh rate, making the sliding more responsive. It also has 1920Hz high frequency eye protection and dimming. The external screen of OPPO Find N2 Flip is 3.26 inches, and the internal screen can reach 6.8 inches, with similar size and display effect as vivo X Flip, but unfortunately lacks adaptive technology.
In terms of performance, the vivo X Flip was released later than the OPPO Find N2 Flip, so its performance is stronger. It is equipped with a Snapdragon 8+ and its Antutu benchmark score is around 1.1 million, while the OPPO Find N2 Flip is equipped with a Dimensity 9000 processor and its benchmark score is around 1 million. From daily use, both phones are very smooth, and large games are no problem.

In terms of imaging, due to the dense space inside the phone, vertical folding screen phones often can’t pack in a lot of imaging hardware. The vivo X Flip has a rear 50-megapixel main camera + 12-megapixel ultra-wide angle lens, with the main camera being the IMX866V. The OPPO Find N2 Flip has a rear 50-megapixel main camera + 8-megapixel ultra-wide angle lens, with the main camera being the IMX890. Compared to the latter, the IMX866V has a larger size, so its shooting ability will be better. Both phones have OIS optical stabilization and a front-facing 32-megapixel camera. The OPPO Find N2 Flip also has a self-developed Mariana X chip, so there is little difference in the camera performance between the two models.
In terms of battery life, both phones have similar battery life. They both support 44W Super Flash Charge, which is already very powerful for vertical folding screen phones. The vivo X Flip has a built-in 4400mAh battery, while the OPPO Find N2 Flip has a 4300mAh battery. The vivo X Flip claims that it can last up to 10.28 hours when using the external screen. It is worth noting that the OPPO Find N2 Flip is only 7.45mm thick, much thinner and lighter than the vivo X Flip, and its battery life is also pretty good.
The starting price of both models is 5999 yuan. The overall configuration of the OPPO Find N2 Flip is not bad, and it received excellent feedback from the market after its release. The biggest difference between it and the vivo X Flip is actually the horizontal external screen and the vertical external screen. Everyone just needs to choose according to their own preferences, as the configuration difference is not significant.

As early as last year, Apple released the iPhone 14 series, which for many Apple fans is a very worthwhile model to buy. However, some people believe that waiting for the iPhone 15 may be better because it may bring more improvements and features. On the other hand, the price of the iPhone 14 has gradually decreased, with some second-tier platforms falling to around 4800 yuan. Faced with this situation, many consumers are hesitant and don’t know whether to directly buy the iPhone 14 or wait for the arrival of the iPhone 15.
iPhone 14 series
Firstly, we need to understand and analyze the performance and characteristics of the iPhone 14. From the appearance design, the iPhone 14 continues to use the current punch-hole screen design, while equipped with more powerful chips and higher-end camera systems, making the user experience smoother and more stable, and able to meet the needs of various scenarios.
Compared to this, the iPhone 15 will be a more revolutionary new model, using a brand new appearance design and more powerful hardware performance. According to rumors, the iPhone 15 will use facial recognition technology to replace the current face recognition function, and will also introduce flexible screen technology for the first time, making the iPhone 15 have more stunning visual and tactile performance.
iPhone 14 series
However, the price of the iPhone 15 will certainly be much higher than that of the iPhone 14. For consumers with limited budgets, buying the iPhone 14 may be a more reasonable choice. By analyzing the appearance and performance characteristics of the iPhone 14, we can see that this phone is already sufficient to meet the needs and expectations of most users. Moreover, the price of the iPhone 14 has now dropped to around 4800 yuan, which is quite affordable compared to flagship models.
If you have a certain budget limit, or your requirements for mobile phone performance and appearance are relatively normal, then buying an iPhone 14 is also a good choice. However, if you are a high-end user pursuing the latest technology, you may want to wait for the arrival of iPhone 15.

Nowadays, smartphones are becoming more and more powerful, to the point that many photography enthusiasts don’t like to bring a camera when going out, because the photography capabilities of many high-end camera phones have surpassed those of mirrorless cameras, and the prices are more affordable, giving a feeling of “buy a camera, get a phone for free”. However, you need to be aware that not all expensive phones have good camera performance. Mobile China recommends several models with very powerful imaging performance.
First of all, there is the vivo S series of phones, which is very suitable for friends who have greater demand for selfies and portrait photography. This year’s vivo S16 has the blessing of front and back soft light and the new generation of imaging algorithms, making the vivo S16’s photography capabilities even more outstanding. With the Snapdragon 870 and a powerful cooling system, there is no need to worry about performance. Plus, it’s reasonably priced so you can buy it.
Honor 80 series
The Honor 80 Pro has an extremely lightweight and pleasing personality design, which feels very comfortable to hold. In addition, it brings key upgrades in three areas: processor, screen, and imaging, which are significantly improved compared to the previous generation, reflected in the overall performance, screen display effect, and imaging shooting ability. The front-facing camera has a 50-megapixel lens, and the rear-facing camera has a 160 million-pixel main camera, 50 million-pixel ultra-wide-angle lens, and 2 million-pixel depth-of-field lens, as well as a new “AI Vlog Video Master” function, which provides a better video shooting experience.
The vivo X90 continues the advantages in imaging and design. In addition, this phone is equipped with the Tianji 9200 chip, the new self-developed V2 chip, UFS 4.0 technology, and a strong cooling system. Its performance configuration reaches the top level in the industry. There is also a newly customized ultra-retina eye protection screen, which can better protect the eyes. Overall, many people consider this vivo X90 to be the most cost-effective flagship phone among vivo’s current lineup.
As the flagship model of OnePlus, the OnePlus 11 does not disappoint. It is equipped with the Snapdragon 8Gen2, which has excellent performance. In terms of the screen, the OnePlus 11 uses a Samsung E4 material 2K flexible curved display, with extremely clear display effect. I am quite satisfied with its imaging system. The back is equipped with three Sony camera sensors, each of which is quite practical, and none of them are just “decorative”. Coupled with Hasselblad imaging tuning, the shooting ability is very excellent.

The current mobile phone products are increasingly targeted at promoting and optimizing gaming performance. The industry’s mainstream configuration is already capable of handling 3A masterpieces of mobile games. But how to buy a gaming phone with the highest cost performance? How to spend less money and play games smoothly?
OnePlus Ace 2
The first model we recommend is the OnePlus Ace 2, which is a product that focuses on the direction of e-sports. A 120Hz Lingmu touch screen (curved screen) meets the current mainstream e-sports phone standards in terms of refresh rate. The full-blood version of the first generation Snapdragon 8+ mobile platform, paired with LPDDR5X and up to 5177 square millimeters of eight-channel through-type VC, ensures performance output capability. With a 5000mAh battery and 100W flash charging, coupled with the HyperBoost 2.0 game stability frame engine, and the strategic cooperation optimization with Genshin Impact for three years, it highlights the e-sports positioning of Ace 2. The 50 million pixel Sony IMX890+OIS optical anti-shake and 8 million pixel wide-angle triple camera can also allow users to take good photos at will. It can be said that this is a performance gaming king at this price point.
The second model is the Redmi K60, which uses a 2K high-brightness screen with a 1920Hz high-frequency PWM dimming and a peak brightness of 1400nits and eye protection. It is also equipped with the first generation Snapdragon 8+ mobile platform, a 5500mAh battery + 67W flash charging combination, which is definitely enough for daily use.
Honor 80 GT
The Honor 80 GT is also a model that focuses on performance. It uses a 120Hz original ultra-frame straight screen and supports video frame rate up to 60Hz. It is still equipped with the first generation Snapdragon 8+ mobile platform and a 4386 square millimeter bionic VC ice-sealed cold cooling system, which also ensures excellent performance experience. The 4800mAh battery is paired with 66W super fast charging, which can be fully charged in about 50 minutes. The rear 54 million pixel large aperture main camera and 8 million pixel wide-angle three-camera can also make the camera stable, making it a water barrel machine with a good gaming experience.

Moreover, their colors are also roughly the same, with three colors: purple, black, and gold. The outer screen of vivo X Flip is placed horizontally, and the back cover is made of plain leather material with special texture processing, which feels texture and quality.

From the perspective of daily use, both phones are very smooth, and large games are no problem.
vivo X Flip
In terms of imaging, due to the dense space of the body, vertically folding screen phones often cannot stack materials in imaging. The vivo X Flip has a rear 50 million pixel main camera + 12 million pixel ultra-wide-angle camera, and the main camera is IMX866V; the OPPO Find N2 Flip has a rear 50 million pixel main camera + 8 million pixel ultra-wide-angle camera, and the main camera is IMX890. Compared with IMX890, IMX866V has a larger size, so its shooting ability will be better. Both phones have OIS optical stabilization and a front 32 million pixel selfie camera. The OPPO Find N2 Flip has a self-developed Mariana X chip, so the camera performance of the two phones is not much different.
In terms of battery life, the battery life of the two phones is not much different. They both support 44W super fast charging, which is already very powerful in vertically folding screen phones. The vivo X Flip has a built-in 4400mAh battery, while the OPPO Find N2 Flip has a built-in 4300mAh battery. The vivo X Flip claims that it can last up to 10.28 hours when using the external screen.

The starting price for both models is 5999 yuan. The overall configuration of the OPPO Find N2 Flip is not bad and it has received excellent market feedback after being released for some time. The biggest difference between it and the vivo X Flip is actually the horizontal external screen and vertical external screen.
