Honor-8X-4160

The Xiaomi Redmi Note 6 Pro has the title of being the first quad-camera smartphone from the Chinese brand. Meanwhile, the Honor 8X is marketed as a phone with high-numbered specs, allowing it steal the win in this comparison.

As you can see, the Honor 8X has 128GB of internal storage, which is two times more than what the Redmi Note 6 Pro has despite the same price tag.

The Honor 8X also takes the win in the display department. Its enormous 6.5-inch Full HD+ screen provides enough room to make playing games and watching videos more immersive. Also, the ultra-thin bezels made it relatively compact than other 6-inchers out there. This is just one of the things we liked about it in our hands-on review.

As for the processors, we expect the Honor 8X to churn out better performance than the Redmi Note 6 Pro. The former sports a 2.2GHz Kirin 710 processor, while the latter has a 1.8GHz Snapdragon chipset.

The 8X is also compatible with Huawei’s GPU Turbo technology, which can make frame rates on select games smoother and fun to play with.

All of that hardware is crammed inside an elegant and sturdy build. The Honor 8X is dressed in glass in the front and back, held together by a metal chassis. Honor even included a vertical design accent on the far left of the back plate. A small design touch that’s highly appreciated.

But to Xiaomi’s credit, the Redmi Note 6 Pro’s camera system is a bit more impressive than the 8X. There are a 20-megapixel + 2-megapixel dual selfie snappers on the front, while the Honor 8X only has a single 8-megapixel camera.

Lastly, the Xiaomi Redmi Note 6 Pro also has a marginally bigger battery. It has a capacity of 4,000mAh while the other has 3,750mAh.
