For users, the most contact with the daily use of mobile phones is the screen, whether the screen display is smooth or not is also a direct way for us to perceive the fluency of mobile phones. Increase the refresh rate of the screen and make the overall response time of the screen faster, which will give us a smoother experience.

Different processor and network support

The key difference between the two phones lies in the processor. The Realme X50 is equipped with Snapdragon 765G chip, which is the latest mid-range 5G chip from Qualcomm. While Redmi Note 8 Pro is powered by MediaTek Helio G90T, which is also a mid-range processor, but its performance may be close to the old Snapdragon 730G.

So, it is no doubt that Snapdragon 765G is more powerful than the old MediaTek Helio G90T.

In addition, the Snapdragon 765G is also the first mid-range 5G chip with integrated 5G modem, so it enables Realme X50 to support 5G network. However, the Redmi Note 8 Pro, powered by MTK Helio G90T, doesn’t support 5G network.

Therefore, if you want to buy an affordable 5G phone, the Realme X50 is definitely a better choice.

Similar camera specs, but also slightly different

Both the two phones offer quad rear cameras, and they have same pixels except one lens.

The Realme X50 adopts a 64MP primary lens with Samsung GW1 sensor, an 8MP ultra wide angle lens (FOV 119 degree), a 12MP telephoto lens and a 2MP macro lens.

The camera setup of Redmi Note 8 Pro consists of a 64MP primary lens with a Samsung GW1 sensor, an 8MP ultra wide angle lens (FOV 120 degree), a 2MP macro lens and a 2MP depth lens.

Therefore, the only difference in their camera is that the Realme X50 offers an additional 12MP telephoto lens, which will help to generate clearer images when shooting distant object.

In terms of front camera, the Realme X50 offers dual front cameras with the combination of a 16MP main lens and an 8MP ultra wide angle lens. While the Redmi Note 8 Pro only has a single 20MP front camera. So if you are a selfie lover, the Realme X50 will offer you better images, especially when you are taking group photos.

Different battery and charging

The Realme X50 is equipped with a 4200mAh battery with the support of 30W fast charging, while the Redmi Note 8 Pro is paired with a 4500mAh battery with the support of 18W fast charging. So the Redmi Note 8 offers your larger battery, but the Realme X50 will bring you faster charging speed.

Realme UI vs MIUI 10

Another difference is that they run different operating system. What surprises us is that the Realme X50 runs Realme UI, which is the first phone to adopt the Realme’s own UI and it is based on ColorOS 7 and Android 10. In addition, the Realme UI will bring users some enhanced features, such as fast speed, less power consumption and optimized gaming experience. Besides, it also adds so convenient features like flashback key, focus mode and three-finger screenshot, etc.  

 

However, the Redmi Note 8 Pro runs the MIUI 10 based on Android 9.0 Pie. But there are also users reflecting that they have received the MIUI 11 update based on Android 10.

Price and which one should you buy?

With so many differences, it is no doubt that the Realme X50 asks for higher price than the Redmi Note 8 Pro.

The Realme X50 8+128GB is priced at 2499 yuan (about $361), and 12+256GB version is price at 2999 yuan (about $433).

While the Redmi Note 8 Pro 8+128GB version sells for 1599 yuan in China and $318 at Gearbest. So the Realme X50 is $130 higher than the Redmi Note 8 Pro.   

Which one should you choose?

It all depends. If you like playing games and want to find a budget 5G phone, the Realme X50 is the best choice.
