    4GB of RAM on PHAB 2 Pro

    Accompanied with the chipset is 4GB of RAM on the Lenovo PHAB 2 Pro, which is nearly 33 percent higher than the Mi Max, which comes with only 3GB of RAM. The Tango phone is a clear winner in this segment.

    Almost Same Display

    Both are undoubtedly the massive smartphones out there in the market. The PHAB 2 Pro comes with a 6.4-inch display and the Mi Max has a 6.44-inch display. However, the Lenovo phone has a QHD panel, which is way better than the Mi Max's 1080p display.

    Fingerprint Sensor on the Back!

    Both the smartphones feature a fingerprint sensor on the rear within reach of your finger. We know that the sensor on Mi Max is fast and reliable.

    Three Rear Cameras on Tango Phone

    As said earlier, the PHAB 2 Pro is the first Tango phone and has some special capabilities to take control of the augmented reality technology. There are three 12MP cameras on the rear side of the smartphone along with an 8MP front-facing normal shooter.

    On the other hand, the Xiaomi Mi Max comes with a 16MP sensor on the rear with dual LED, autofocus, and PDAF support. Also, it comes with a 5MP front-facing sensor.

    Big Batteries!

    Both the Mi Max and PHAB 2 Pro come with mammoth battery capacity. The Mi Max comes with a 3,850mAh battery and the PHAB 2 Pro comes with a 4,050mAh battery. That said, the Mi Max is a clear winner in this segment and it just has a 1080p panel, which consumes less battery than the QHD display on PHAB 2 Pro.

    Pricing and Verdict

    The Lenovo PHAB 2 Pro will retail at a price tag of $499 (approx. Rs. 33,500) and the Xiaomi Mi Max is already available at a price tag of Rs. 14,999, which is a great deal. But, the PHAB 2 Pro has some special features for augmented reality technology and the Mi Max is just a normal smartphone.
