The Redmi Note 5 Pro was extremely successful in the sub-Rs 15,000 price segment and with the aggressive pricing, Xiaomi wants to keep the crown for best smartphone brand in the mid-range smartphone segment.

Redmi Note 6 Pro vs One Power vs Zenfone Max Pro M1: Design and Display

With the Redmi Note 6 Pro, Xiaomi is shifting to a design language that appeals to consumers. In the past few months, we have seen that consumers adapt to smartphones with a notched display and dual camera system faster than other designs. So, Xiaomi is doing just that by adding a notch to the top, which is considerably wide.

The smartphone has also been curved a bit further to allow for a better grip and hand feel. Otherwise, it sticks to the design language seen on Redmi Note 5 Pro early this year. There is a small chin at the front, and the fingerprint sensor is placed on the back. It sports a 6.26-inch display with Full HD+ resolution of 2280×1080 pixels, which is bigger than the 6-inch display seen on its predecessor.

Motorola One Power comes with a 6.2-inch display supporting Full HD+ resolution of 2246×1080 pixels, which translates to 18.7:9 aspect ratio. Like Redmi Note 6 Pro, the Motorola One Power’s display also features a notch that is as wide as the one found on Apple iPhone X. It features a rugged design and is thicker and heavier than other smartphones due to massive battery under the hood.

Asus Zenfone Max Pro M1 is crafted out of a single piece of aluminum, and it features a taller display design. It sports a 5.99-inch display with a resolution of 2160×1080 pixels, and 18:9 aspect ratio. Its form factor is similar to that of Redmi Note 5 Pro and will appeal to those who find notch as a distraction.

Redmi Note 6 Pro vs One Power vs Zenfone Max Pro M1: Specifications

The Redmi Note 6 Pro is not a huge upgrade in the hardware department. It comes in two storage variants with option for 4GB or 6GB of RAM, and 64GB storage as standard. It is powered by the same Snapdragon 636 SoC with Adreno 509 GPU, but the device should be faster thanks to software improvements coming with release of MIUI 10. It now supports dual-SIM dual VoLTE, which has been a much requested feature by most smartphone users.

The One Power and Zenfone Max Pro M1 are also powered by the same Qualcomm Snapdragon 636 SoC. The Snapdragon 636 is an octa-core chipset with custom Kryo 260 cores that allows for improved performance and battery life. The Motorola One Power is offered in only one storage variant of 4GB RAM and 64GB storage and recently got updated to Android 9 Pie.

The Asus Zenfone Max Pro M1 comes in three storage variants of 3GB RAM with 32GB storage and 4GB or 6GB of RAM and 64GB storage. The Zenfone Max Pro M1 has been found to be perform well thanks to its near-stock Android software. It runs Android 8.1 Oreo for now but is expected to get Android Pie update by the end of this year.

Redmi Note 6 Pro vs One Power vs Zenfone Max Pro M1: Cameras

With the Redmi Note 6 Pro, Xiaomi has focused all of its efforts in the camera department. The smartphone comes with quad-camera setup, two on the front and two on the rear. There is a combination of 12-megapixel and 5-megapixel dual rear camera setup which allows for depth effect and new effects like portrait studio effect and light trails. Xiaomi has also added dual-pixel autofocus allowing for super fast autofocus.

At the front, there is a combination of 20-megapixel selfie shooter from its predecessor coupled with a 2-megapixel depth sensor. The selfie portraits on the Redmi Note 6 Pro should be much better than the one with the Redmi Note 5 Pro.

Motorola One Power, on the other hand, has a combination of 16-megapixel and 5-megapixel dual rear camera setup. At the front, there is single 12-megapixel shooter. The Zenfone Max Pro M1 comes in two different camera configurations depending on the storage variant.

The 3GB and 4GB RAM variants feature a combination of 13-megapixel and 5-megapixel dual rear camera setup. At the front, it has a singe 8-megapixel shooter. The 6GB RAM variant gets updated camera configuration of 16-megapixel and 5-megapixel dual rear cameras and a 16-megapixel front camera.

Redmi Note 6 Pro vs One Power vs Zenfone Max Pro M1: Pricing

Xiaomi’s competitive edge lies in pricing and the company has once again displayed that with the launch of Redmi Note 6 Pro. It starts at Rs 13,999 for the base variant with 4GB RAM and 64GB storage. The 6GB RAM variant is priced at Rs 15,999. However, those buying the smartphone during tomorrow’s black friday sale on Flipkart will be able to avail additional Rs 1,000 off on that price.

Motorola One Power, priced at Rs 15,999, seems expensive in comparison. Asus Zenfone Max Pro M1 is definitely competitive with a starting price of Rs 9,999 for 3GB RAM variant. and Rs 13,999 for the 6GB RAM variant but it is set to get displaced by its successor next month.
