The third test is opening Google Chrome. Results revealed that the OnePlus 3T was faster in opening the Google Chrome app.

Camera Launch Speed Test
For this part, the video source did a rerun about 4 times, 2 were successful, while the other 2 were not. However, the results showed that the OnePlus 3T was faster.
Re-opening The Opened Apps
Among all the apps that were opened, the OnePlus 3T still had all its apps running, except for a minor problem. The GPS Testing app needed to connect again. As for the Xiaomi Mi Mix, it still had all the apps open but needed to reconnect with the Fifa 16 and GPS Testing app.
Based on the abovementioned analysis, it is clear that the OnePlus 3T is faster than the Xiaomi Mi Mix. But if I were to choose between the two smartphones, I would choose the Xiaomi Mi Mix on any given day. Why? Simply because in terms of design, I like how the Xiaomi Mi Mix looks like plus it has a larger screen which is 6.4 inches. But then again it still doesn't change the fact that the OnePlus 3T is faster in terms of performance.
