I am really confused in between vivo v15 pro which uses Qualcomm Snapdragon 675 and Realme 6 pro which uses Qualcomm Snapdragon 720G. It was comprehensively useful and admirable that they have quite a bit of difference and my perception wise it can't be distinguished in between both in reallife experience but I'm jumping over Vivo v15 pro supressing a bit of processor quality underneath the premium , handy and , cozy features slighthy than its lineups and precisely Realme 6 pro which is basically the new item on the list with gimmicks and hipes. Thank you.
