Xiaomi has been outperforming in the Indian smartphone market for the past few years and has remained the leader for the past three quarters. In the fourth quarter of 2017, Xiaomi dethroned Samsung as the market leader and retained that place in the first quarter of 2018. With the launch of new products, Xiaomi seems destined to stay the number one in the market. Also Read - Top 5 OnePlus 9RT alternatives: OnePlus Nord 2 5G, Samsung Galaxy A52s 5G, more

While Xiaomi is known primarily as a player offering excellent value for money devices, the company entered the segment for selfie-centric smartphones with Redmi Y1 last year. At the launch event today, Xiaomi VP Manu Jain said that the smartphone was the best-selling selfie device during the first quarter of 2018. Now, the company is trying to stay competitive in that space with the new Redmi Y2. However, Xiaomi is not alone here. It has competition from the likes of Oppo and Honor. Here is how the new Redmi Y2 compares against the Realme 1 from Oppo and Honor 7C.

Xiaomi Redmi Y2 vs Oppo Realme 1 vs Honor 7C: Cameras

In the case of all the three devices, camera is the biggest talking point. While we generally talk about rear cameras, the Redmi Y2 is particularly strong with its selfie camera. The Redmi Y2 features a 16-megapixel selfie shooter, and incorporates “Super Pixel” technology that combines four pixels into one large pixel. The selfie camera also uses AI algorithm to enhance skin tone and deliver blurred background.

In comparison, both Realme 1 and Honor 7C come with an 8-megapixel sensor along with AI beautification feature. The Realme 1, in particular, comes with Oppo’s beautification algorithms, which have been commanded as one of the best in the selfie department.

As far as the rear camera is concerned, the Redmi Y2 combines a 12-megapixel and 5-megapixel sensors, similar to the Redmi Note 5 Pro. The Realme 1, on the other hand, features a 13-megapixel main camera, which has been found to deliver excellent results for the price point. The Honor 7C also features dual rear camera setup with a 13-megapixel sensor and a 2-megapixel sensor for depth effect.

Xiaomi Redmi Y2 vs Oppo Realme 1 vs Honor 7C: Design and Display

This is one area where Realme 1 remains untamed against its compatriots. The Realme 1, as the company describes, does not offer a generic design and instead comes with a premium diamond back finish seen on the premium Oppo F7 smartphone. In comparison, the Honor 7C features metal back. The Redmi Y2 however features a plastic back that has been given a metallic finish.

The Realme 1 also comes with a pixel dense 6-inch Full HD+ display with a resolution of 2160×1080 pixels. The Redmi Y2, due to its cost, features a 5.99-inch display similar to Redmi Note 5 and Redmi Note 5 Pro, but offers lower HD+ resolution of 1440×720 pixels. The Honor 7C also has a 5.99-inch HD+ display putting it on par with Redmi Y2 in this department.

Xiaomi Redmi Y2 vs Oppo Realme 1 vs Honor 7C: Specifications

The Redmi Y1 is powered by octa-core Qualcomm Snapdragon 625, an older processor that has been found to offer superior performance alongside battery life. The smartphone comes in two different storage variants the base model offers 3GB RAM and 32GB storage, while a premium variant comes with 4GB RAM and 64GB storage. The smartphone runs MIUI 9.5 based on Android 8.0 Oreo, and will be upgraded to MIUI 10 at a later stage.

The Realme 1 also comes in two storage models 3GB RAM variant with 32GB storage and 6GB RAM variant with 128GB storage. The smartphone is powered by an octa-core MediaTek Helio P60 chipset clocked at 2GHz. It runs Android 8.1 Oreo with ColorOS 5.0 on top of it. The company has promised to offer regular updates for the smartphone.

In India, the Honor 7C is being offered in one storage variant with 3GB RAM and 32GB storage. It is powered by a Snapdragon 450 chipset, which might not be as fast as the Snapdragon 600 series or MediaTek Helio P60 found on Redmi Y2 and Realme 1 respectively.

Xiaomi Redmi Y2 vs Oppo Realme 1 vs Honor 7C: Pricing

As you would expect from any Xiaomi smartphone, the USP of Redmi Y2 remains its price. The smartphone is priced at Rs 9,999 for the 3GB RAM variant with 32GB storage. The 4GB RAM variant with 64GB storage is priced at Rs 12,999. The smartphone will be available on Amazon India, mi.com, and Mi Home stores.

However, the Redmi Y2 is getting strong competition from Realme 1, which starts at Rs 8,990 for the 3GB RAM, 32GB storage model. The higher-end variant with 6GB RAM and 128GB storage retails for Rs 13,990. The smartphone is again exclusively available on Amazon India. The decision between Redmi Y2 and Realme 1 will boil down to how important the design element is when you buy a smartphone.

The Honor 7C seems to be losing out here with a Snapdragon 400 series CPU and option for only one storage. At Rs 9,999, it definitely priced on the higher end of the spectrum.
