Comparison with redmi note 9 …Comparison with redmi note 9 progsmarena.com/compare.php3?idPhone1=10114&idPhone2=10126


Virtually identical then?
Lovely phone but new redmi is being launched today right? I think it will be about £100 cheaper than this. I will wait and see
is this 5g?
This seems pricey to me compared to the Note 9 series...

I'll be very surprised if a UK seller has it at 100 quid cheaper, I'd be all over that tho.

Very similar apart from battery, os, 90hz screen, 5.1 Bluetooth and cameras

Voted hot as it's a great but if kit for the price, but it's not really a deal as such as it's the normal price

Yeah good point. Missed that it's Amazon UK based seller
Go for the Redmi K30 over this at the same price point.

Understand your point of UK seller, personally I think that's overrated, especially at this price point. For comparison I bought the Note 9S, 128/6 for £150, if I wanted expedited delivery it was another £20, even then it's way cheaper than this. No UK warranty, but no need when it's half the price.

I'm with you on buying from China I do it all the time but some people prefer the option of UK seller, much shorter delivery and increased warranty protection which you'll always pay a premium for.
£100 cheaper than the Pixel 4a, spec is better in most areas than the Pixel. The Pixel you buy for the software/os features and updates and computational photography. You might get a Gcam mod for this which may get you somewhere close to the Pixel 4a. What do people think, worth the extra £100? I'm thinking probably no.

Pixel will be better photos. Gcam is a good workaround but has its foibles, whereas Pixel will work out of the box.

Pixel is also a smaller size which is either a disadvantage or an advantage depending on preference.

As you say, the realme has better specifications such as storage and fast charging, but you will be lucky to get one OS update whereas Pixel will get at least 2.

Realme has 90hz but Pixel has OLED.

One thing is for sure, when I come to replace my Galaxy S8 I'll be looking at both of these options.

Which Redmi?

He means the redmi note 9 Pro, don't think it launched today tho.
I've just bit the bullet and ordered one. I'd been changing my mind between the Note 9s and the Realme 6 for long enough, saying if there was a phone that combined the best features of the two I'd go for it. I eventually bought the 9s for ~£190 off Amazon, but my order got lost so I got a refund plus I managed to negotiate a bit extra for the inconvenience. I hadn't paid much attention to the 6 Pro's existence but it looks like the phone I was looking for all along! Hopefully this one arrives safe and sound. Thanks OP!
LukeMB06/05/2020 21:43

Which Redmi?


Xiaomi Redmi Note 9 Pro Max, but it's India lunch only and probably will have to find reliable seller, chancing with customs and end up paying similar amount to this phone (and buying the right plug)

Maybe easier to wait for realme to do discounts..

Thanks. I want to replace my Moto G5 and plan to spend £200 max. I have been checking for last two weeks but no good deals yet.

I would happily get this phone if price drops down from £300, unlikely though given it just came out

Depends if you want the phone quickly or don't mind going down the China route, can save a fair bit of wedge but warranty and delivery times not gonna be as good as Amazon etc.

I do not want import, too much hassle, and after paying custom, taxes, etc. it is not always such a great price...

Yeah the 6gb/128gb was 197 tho so may come back down, especially when the pro becomes more widespread.

This would be nice
amazon.es/realme-Blanco-Versi%2525C3%2525B3n-Europea-Enchufe/dp/B07Z5F1PMX

Just an option.

Paying only an extra £85 gets you:

Snapdragon 855+ which is a faster processor than the 720g and with better graphics processing

12GB RAM

extra 128GB storage (256GB total) and more importantly this memory is also UFS 3.0, whereas on the 6 pro it is 2.1. which offers nearly twice the speed.

and apparently some models of the 6 pro, country-dependent. dont come with NFC. All X2 pro models come with NFC

Same 90Hz screen but slightly higher touch sampling rate

50w vs 30w charging - Full battery in 30 mins

Super amoled vs IPS LCD

Slow-mo 960fps recording

Also this is officially from Amazon aswell, its from Amazon spain but prime is inc and its the same type of returns policy etc and official warranty. Mine is arriving tomorrow hopefully.

Weirdly enough the one in my link, the 12GB/256GB model is actually £10 cheaper than the exact same model but lower specs at 8GB/128GB. apparently Amazon.es has knocked off £60 off the higher model but the lower model is still the same price. Bargain to be had tbh

It depends how poor you are - i.e what proportion of your income you're spending on the thing. It would kill me if I ended up with something that failed with no easy warranty replacement - I wouldn't have the funds to replace it, so UK warranty is vital.
