India loves low budget and that’s exactly what these two phones brands are offering with their phones.

Honor, a sub-brand of Huawei, which is mainly known for its mid-range and sometimes high budget phones, has wet its legs into the low budget area of the smartphone industry. But how does it compete with Xiaomi’s Redmi lineup, which is already a veteran in the low budget area?

• The Redmi note 7 pro comes with a Snapdragon 675 octa-core, 11-nanometer chipset, clocked at 2.0Ghz, and has an Antutu benchmark score of 179459.
It comes in either a 4gb ram, 64gb storage or a 6gb ram, 128gb storage.
It uses an Adreno 612 GPU, so the graphics performance and rendering is pretty good.
No stuttering or lag is observed in the UI.
The ram management is pretty aggressive, and the phone tends to retain a few apps open in the background but usually closes them after about 20 minutes.
No heating is observed with regular usage.

• The Honor play comes with a Kirin 970 AI octa-core, 10-nanometer chipset, clocked at 2.3Ghz and has an Antutu benchmark score of 207689. This processor has previously been used in flagships by Honor. A Kirin 970 at this price range is a pretty big deal
It comes in either a 4gb-64gb configuration or a 6gb-64gb configuration
It uses a Mali G72 GPU, so the graphics are bound to be better than the Redmi.
Honor has implemented something they call a GPU turbo technology. This gives you better performance while decreasing power consumption in the background. According to Honor, it boosts the performance by 60% while decreasing the power consumption by 30%. It also offers 4D gaming experience which I will talk about later. Also, the ram management is really good and it retains all apps.

Honor clearly takes a lead in the processor and performance department.

• The Redmi note 7 pro has a 6.3-inch FHD, IPS LCD screen with a 19:9:5 aspect ratio. The screen gets decently bright and is also pretty visible outdoors at full brightness under sunlight.

• The Honor play also has a 6.3-inch FHD, IPS LCD screen with a 19:9:9 aspect ratio and a 2.5d curved display. The overall screen quality is noticeably better than the Redmi note 7 pro’s.

Battery and charging technology-
• The Redmi note 7 pro had a 4000mah battery that supports quick charge 4.0 (18-watt output)
It has a pretty good battery life and would give a normal user about a day of usage before needing to be charged. Also, it has a 7-8 hour screen on time.

• The Honor play has a 3750mah battery that also supports fast charge (18watt).
It has slightly better battery life. The screen on time is pretty much the same as the Redmi note 7 pro but the phone can last a user about a day and a half or a little under a day for a heavy user.

• The rear camera of the Redmi note 7 pro is a 48MP + 5MP AI Dual camera with an f/1.79 aperture lens. It has AI Portrait mode, background blurring, Low light enhancement, Video stabilization (EIS), Face recognition and AI Dynamic bokeh (portrait mode)
The edge detection is pretty good. The camera is set to shoot in 12MP by default. You can enable 48MP by going to pro mode

The front camera is a 13MP camera with AI Portrait mode, background blurring, AI Beautify, Face recognition, Selfie timer and HDR.

• The rear camera on the Honor play is a 16MP + 2MP rear camera with F/2.2 aperture + F/2.4 aperture lens. It has all the other features as the Redmi Note 7 Pro and 3D portrait lighting. The edge detection is great.
The front camera is a 16 MP front facing camera with F/2.0 aperture lens. It has 3D portrait lighting and AI portrait mode.

Here are the camera samples of the two devices.
• The Redmi note 7 pro has a glass back with plastic sides and looks and feels very premium. It comes in three colours (Neptune blue, Space black and Nebula red).

• The Honor play has a metal unibody design that also feels very premium but not as much as a glass back would. It certainly is more durable than the Redmi though, but I wouldn’t recommend throwing it around XD. It comes in three colours (blue, black and ultra violet)

Gaming performance:

• The Redmi note 7 pro has great gaming performance as expected from the Snapdragon 675. Most games run in 60fps and very smoothly and with the proper settings no game should lag or have any issues running on the device. Also, PUBG can run on HD mode easily on the device.

• Honor Play is a great phone for games. Its better than the redmi. It has something called 4D gaming experience which “recognizes the gaming scenario of team battles, the use of special skills, switching and shooting guns, etc. and intelligently match a vibration feedback like using a game console.” As quoted by the company. It definitely performs better and has better graphics. PUBG can run on HDR mode pretty easily.

In box contents and other specs:
• The Redmi note 7 pro comes with a normal 5V 2A charger with a USB A to USB C type connector, a simple silicon case (either clear or black smoke).
It has a hybrid nano sim card slot.
It has a physical fingerprint sensor.
It comes with android 9 pie and MIUI 10.
It has gorilla glass 5 on both the front and back glass.
It has a led notification light on the bottom.

• The Honor play comes with an 18-watt fast charger and a clear silicon case in the box.
It has a hybrid nano sim card slot.
It has a physical fingerprint sensor.
It comes with android 8 oreo and emotion UI but Honor has pushed a software update to Android 9.

• The redmi note 7 has a few cons

  1. Sometimes there is a 2-3 second freeze in the camera app.
  2. The earpiece isn’t very loud but manageable.
  3. The phone is very slippery even for a glass back.
  4. It’s a XIAOMI device so there are ads in the UI but most of them can be turned off during the installation.
  5. The box doesn’t include any type of a fast charger even though the phone supports quick charge 4.0.

• The honor play also has a few cons but less than the redmi

  1. Gets a little warm during extended gaming due to the metal back but does not overheat.
  2. The speaker loudness is below average.
  3. It has the old-style notch.
  4. It doesn’t have any gorilla glass.
  5. Pricing The Redmi note 7 costs 14k for the 4gb-64gb variant and 17k for the 6gb-128gb variant

• The honor play costs 15k for the 4gb-64gb variant and 17k for the 6gb-64gb variant.
