Of the three smartphones, all the smartphones have their pros and cons, however, the Xiaomi 13 Pro has turned out to be a better option than the other two devices.

Looking at the performance of the three smartphones, the Xiaomi 13 Pro powered by the Snapdragon 8 Gen 2 processor offers the best performance when compared to the other two devices.

Even for its display too, the Xiaomi smartphone offers its users an LTPO AMOLED display with a higher resolution while the other two device offers a normal AMOLED display. However, the Tecno Phantom X2 comes with a slightly larger display panel than the Xiaomi 13 Pro.

Coming to the cameras, all three devices have a triple rear camera setup, with the Tecno Phantom X2 having a better 64MP main camera, followed by the Xiaomi 13 Pro which has a 50.3MP main camera. But when we look at the additional cameras, the Xiaomi smartphone has the best telephoto camera and the best ultra-wide angle camera. For selfies, both the Tecno Phantom X2 and the Xiaomi 13 Pro smartphones offer 32MP front-facing cameras while the iQOO 9 only has a 16MP front camera

Regarding the battery backups of the three devices, the Tecno Phantom X2 has the best battery backup of 5160 mAh, followed by the Xiaomi 13 Pro smartphone which has a 4820 mAh battery. The iQOO 9 smartphone falls really back in terms of its battery backup and only has a 4350 mAh battery. But when we take the fast charging capabilities of the three devices, the Xiaomi 13 Pro comes with better wired and wireless charging features and also offers its users a reverse wireless charging feature as well.

So even if the smartphone falls a little back in the case of some of its specs, the Xiaomi 13 Pro is to be considered as the better smartphone than the iQOO 9 and Tecno Phantom X2 as it offers better performance, better display, better cameras and better fast charging capabilities.
