Redmi Note 8 Pro vs Honor 9X: camera review

By  Niki Jones 2019-10-12 1504 0

Today's mobile phone market is changing with each passing day. The advancement of technology has made the performance of the thousand yuan phone more powerful. Like the full screen, AI three camera is no longer a high-end exclusive. The photo performance of the thousand yuan phone is also in line with the flagship. Among them, the Honor 9X and the Redmi Note 8 Pro are the most concerned. The former is equipped with 48 million AI three-shot, while the latter is 64 million high-definition cameras. Now, let’s compare Redmi Note 8 Pro and Honor 9X’s camera performance.

Appearance experience

Appearance, these two mobile phones use the flagship mainstream 3D surface design, smooth and comfortable, breaking the author's consistent low impression of the thousand yuan machine. The difference between the two is that the  Redmi Note 8 Pro uses the back fingerprint, and the middle four strings are not all cameras.

Visually, the Honor 9X X-shaped diamond texture and 3D phantom glass body, the effect varies with the angle of light, maybe more popular with young users.

The front is also very different styles, the screen is 6.53 inches of the large screen, the difference is that the Redmi Note 8 Pro is a water drop screen, the Honor 9X is a more avant-garde true · comprehensive screen. In contrast, the Honor 9X is more cool, the technology is better, and the Redmi Note 8 Pro is slightly mature.

In addition, the Honor 9X also adopts the design of the front and rear camera, and the self-timer will automatically pop up. It is also based on this that there is no "bang" or "water droplet" on the front of the mobile phone, and the borderless visual effect is particularly prominent.

The Redmi Note 8 Pro is equipped with quad camera on the back: a 64 MP main camera, and an 8MP ultra-wide angle sensor, a 2MP super macro camera and a 2 MP depth of field sensor.

The camera of the Honor 9X is equipped with a 48MP ultra-clear main camera + 2 MP depth-of-field dual-camera configuration. Its 9X Pro three-camera version is equipped with a 2 MP depth of field lens + 48 MP ultra-clear main camera + 8 MP super wide-angle lens.

64MP vs 48 MP, what is the actual performance?

64MP main camera vs 48 MP main camera

With the current camera performance, it is difficult to see the difference in the conventional scene. The author has selected several different occasions to test its comprehensive quality.

The following pictures are all under the same conditions:

Redmi Note 8 Pro's 64MP main camera performance is good, high pixel high resolution brings a nice sense of fineness, but the color is warmer and the saturation is higher, especially the leaf part, the color is a little over, although it is flattering, but Not real enough. In contrast, the white balance of the Honor 9X should be more accurate and closer to the real thing.

Let's take a look at the details. 100% enlargement will reveal that the leaves and veins of the Redmi Note 8 Pro are not as clear and smeared as they were imagined. The real shot of the Honor 9X is also very clear, and the meridians on the leaves are sharply visible.

2.Indoor dark light real shot

The indoor dark light environment tests the high-light contrast processing ability of the mobile phone. The real shot can see that the Redmi Note 8 Pro picture is clear overall, and the details of the dark place can be seen clearly, but the highlights such as curtains overflow heavily and are processed. The Honor 9X has a more balanced approach, which enhances the details of the shadows while suppressing highlights, so even high-gloss windows have good details.

By putting it into the details of the mineral water bottle, it can be seen that the Redmi Note 8 Pro is only limited to enhance the brightness of the dark part, and the Honor 9X is not only clearer but also much less early.

3.Outdoor backlight real shot

The warmer style adjustment makes the  Redmi Note 8 Pro especially suitable for shooting sunsets. The overall picture is very atmospheric, subject to the high saturation style, or feel a bit gorgeous. Honor 9X wants more "sensible", comprehensive balanced output, retains the warmth and warmth of the setting sun, and the picture is more comfortable.

Contrast details, Honor 9X sharpness, brightness, clarity, color performance is also better.

4.Ordinary night scene real shot

If it is in the past few years, it is hard to imagine that the thousand yuan phone can also shoot the night scene. The night scene shooting has also become a "touchstone" that comprehensively considers the quality of the camera.

It can be seen from the real shot that the  Redmi Note 8 Pro is insufficient for high-light processing, the font of the billboard is very obvious, and the details are lost. The Honor 9X night shot is very good for high-light processing, and the night is darker, and the details of the dark part are kept clearer. This picture does not enlarge the details.

5.Ordinary brightness night shot

This is a real shot of a parking lot. The high contrast between the dazzling street lights and the vehicles in the dark is a test of the camera's comprehensive processing capabilities. From the real shot, the performance of the  Redmi Note 8 Pro is generally satisfactory, the light and dark alternately layered, the overflow of highlights is not serious, in addition to the style adjustment difference, the two pictures are not too different.

However, if you zoom in on the vehicle's license plate, you will find that the details of the Redmi Note 8 Pro are obviously not clear enough, and the smear is obviously not as good as the Honor 9X.

6. Extreme dark night shooting

In the end, it was difficult to solve them. This is a very dark sculpture, and the real situation is even darker. The real shot of Redmi Note 8 Pro is really a reflection of the scene, the picture is full of noise, can not see the details of the eye of the sculpture. The performance of Honor 9X is beyond expectations, the characters and background are clearly differentiated, and the details of the fingers are clearly visible.

Running score comparison

Is the difference in photographing related to the hardware configuration?

With this question, I simply compared the configuration of the two phones.

 Redmi Note 8 Pro uses a 12nm process technology chip MediaTek G90T processor, there are 2 A75 large cores with a frequency of 2.05GHz + 6 GHz small cores with a frequency of 2GHz, 8GB storage +128GB storage for this The level is a bit extravagant.

The Honor 9X series is equipped with a 7nm process unicorn 810 processor. It has two custom Cortex-A76 cores with a frequency of 2.27GHz and six Cortex-A55 cores. It consists of a dual-slave architecture and built-in Huawei self-developed Finch NPU, 6GB storage +128GB storage, better balance performance, and power consumption.

 Redmi Note 8 Pro vs Honor 9X: Running score

From the actual running test of AnnTutu, the Honor 9X's more than 289,000 points are higher than the Redmi Note 8 Pro 280,000 points and nearly 7,000 points. How many bonuses, given the performance of the 64 million ultra-high pixels, the ability of this processor has to make a question mark.

Summary

From the comparison, we know that Redmi Note 8 Pro’s performance is no surprise, the color style is single. The 64 million pixels are really large enough, but the main factor affecting image quality is not the size of the pixels. ISP and camera algorithm optimization will directly affect the final imaging effect. 

Look at the Honor 9X, although it is only a double camera, thanks to the owl algorithm + flagship ISP + 48 million hardware straight out of the camera iron triangle optimization, photo quality improved significantly. Therefore, in summary, the Honor 9X can be said to be the best choice in the current thousand yuan phones.
