  1. Hello, do you think it is worth changing my pixel 6 pro for this live? What interests me most is the camera, greetings from Guatemala✌️

  2. Thanks for the awesome details.
    Please z always put the comparison photos side by side for better comparison. Our short term memory can't remember everything in that precision.

    Thanks for your video.
    Next, you should try Google Pixel 7 vs Xiaomi 12S Ultra.
    Beta wishes from India 🇮🇳


  3. I'll be honest from all of your coverage of the 12s ultra especially the camera deep dive(cheap Patreon plug) it made me just decide that I want to mess with that hardware.

    It's crazy because I polled my audience and they are far more interested in me covering the 12s ultra than the 14 pro max.

    Gonna have to forego getting the 1 IV, but the 1 III is still a beast so I can wait for the V. Lol

  4. i just landed on your channel through suggestions and now i feel like i have seen your videos or something like gsmarena reviews/videos 2 -3 years back but right now I'm not able to recall it, anyways i have subscribed, very informative review, perfect roasting too. 👍

  5. Hey great review and super comparison! I' d love to get my hands on one of those. Did you see the Huawei P50 Pro or the Motorola Edge 30 Ultra yet? How do these stack to any of those two?

  6. This is an inaccurate and unfair comparison. You can't really call it a ''Zeiss VS Leica.'' Why?
    1. The glass for the phone lenses on the Xiaomi 12S Ultra was designed and made by Leica, whereas the glass for the phone lenses on the Vivo X80Pro was not designed and made by Zeiss, it's only Zeiss coatings, on the glass made by Vivo or whoever it was that made the glass for their phones lenses!
    2. Leica designed the glass for all 3 lenses on the Xiaomi, specifically to be calibrated for all 3 of the image sensors in the phone, whereas Zeiss had nothing to do with the glass design or calibration or the cameras image sensor, again, because Vivo only used Zeiss coating on the phones, the phones don't actually have Zeiss glass on them!

    Saying ''Zeiss VS Leica'' while comparing these two phones is like saying ''Lamborghini VS Ferrari'' while comparing a Lamborghini, to a Toyota Prius with a Ferrari badge – and yet still, Vivo X80Pro with only Zeiss coating produces just as good images as the Xiaomi 12S Ultra with actual glass made by Leica!

  7. Amazing review!
    You helped me choose the…
    Non, lol, we don't get any of them in my country.
    Recently we got VIVO here but only the midd models, i guess they are checking the market so hopefully in the future we will see the flagships.
    Basically we have only Samsung, IPhone and a lot midd laners of different brands and I don't want neither.
    So, I'll wait, and wait, and wait…

    Amazing job man, you clearly know what you are doing 👏

  8. both not best…
    maybe at night..
    my mi 10 pro makes better daylight pictures, wide and ultrawide☝🏼☝🏼
    newer does not mean better ☝🏼☝🏼

  9. Really enjoyed your review! Thank you! I recently found out about a phone named "Nubia z40 s pro", please chek it out, would be amazing to have a review from you of it… 🙂

  10. I'm so torn. It's my first time to purchase a flagship phone, and I can't decide between the two. My current phone is Redmi note 10 pro, I love the MUI. But the night pictures that you can take with Vivo X80 is just mind blowing! Both phones are excellent. Somebody help me
