The Galaxy M30s (₹ 13,999), while the Redmi Note 8 Pro (₹ 14,999 packed in a massive 6,000mAh battery without feeling thick) offers the magic of four cameras on a single device.

The Design

With a glass back design on the back and a thin bezel display, the Redmi Note 8 Pro retains most of the design elements of the predecessor.

There are minor changes to jazz up the look, such as tear cut outs at the top of the screen instead of rounded cutouts on the former and more sophisticated color options - Halo White, Gamma Green and Shadow Black.

With a large 6.5-inch screen and a 4,500mAh battery on board and four cameras on the back, the Redmi phone measures 200 grams in scale. Surprisingly, it doesn't seem overly heavy or unbearable at any point. Among rivals, weighing 188 grams, is lighter than the Galaxy M30, yet manages to provide a 6.4-inch screen and a long-lasting 6,000mAh battery.

Xiaomi has kept the micro SD card slot separate from the SIM slot, allowing users to access all three simultaneously.

The Huawei Y9 Prime seems to be more premium with an almost bezel-less screen and dual tone finish. It is one of the few handsets at this price point that offers a true edge-to-edge screen.


The 6.53-inch LCD screen is the largest in the Redmi Note series. It has a standard resolution of 2,340x1,080p and a wide aspect ratio of 19: 9.

The MIUI of the Redmi Note 9 Pro is much more polished, while with the Galaxy M30s One UI and Huawei's EM UI, users get more customization options.


This is the first Redmi smartphone to run on a MediaTek processor. With up to 6GB of RAM, the MediaTek Helio G90T lives up to most of our expectations and the standards set by previous Redmi Note smartphones. It can handle most of every day tasks without a stretcher and even manages to easily handle games like eFootball PES 2020 and Call of Duty Mobile at 60fps.

In terms of battery back, the Galaxy M30s is ahead of the Redmi Note 8 Pro and lasts about two days on moderate usage.

The Camera

It seems that Xiaomi has finally started taking photography and social media enthusiasts more seriously.

The 48 MP snapper on the Redmi Note 7 Pro and now the 64 MP camera on the successor is a testament to this. The icing on the cake are three additional cameras - 8MP for 120degree ultra wide photos, 2MP for macro shots and 2MP for increasing depth of field in bokeh shots.

The 64MP camera is not enabled by default, and must be manually switched to camera mode. It delivers well-lit shots with enough detail for social media posts. The colors look realistic and have not been overloaded for effect. Low light and night shots also produced color and detail well. 64MP mode has its limitations such as zoom does not work in it. Macro mode is a fun addition and will inspire you to take more close up shots. This allows the focus to be closer to 2 cm.


With the Galaxy M30s and Y9 Prime, Samsung and Huawei have managed to get into the headlines remotely from Xiaomi, which does not intend to wait and watch from its side and reach the Redmi Note 8 Pro sooner than expected. has gone.

Overall, the Redmi Note 8 Pro meets most of our expectations. It's not an exact winner, but certainly better than its predecessor for taking on rivals. If you are looking for a combination of camera and performance, then the Redmi Note 8 Pro is the phone for you. If battery backup and display experience are more important, the Galaxy M30 is a more viable option.

The Huawei Y9 Prime is notable for its more futuristic bezel-less design.
