  • Which is the best phone among Honor 7X, Samsung Galaxy A6 Plus, and Xiaomi Redmi Note 5 Pro?

    V

    Answered By Vilok Chauhan | 3 months ago

    I will suggest you go for the Redmi Note 5 Pro 6GB variant.

    It provides you with the most amount of RAM (i.e., 6GB) in the price range and still manages to offer a bigger battery than the rest of the two smartphones. 

    Sporting a 5.99-inch IPS LCD, it comes with a metal case body and has a thin-bezel design. Under the hood, there is a Qualcomm Snapdragon 636 SoC (8 x 1.8GHz). With 12 MP + 5 MP Dual Primary Cameras you can capture images of 4,000 x 3,000 pixels. Along with the front camera, an LED flash makes sure that you can make video calls at night. It consists of a 4,000mAh Li-Polymer battery which supports quick charging and equipped with a wide range of robust features.
