If you have read the above specs table, you would spot a few important differences between the models. The Xiaomi Mi 6X is the better model here with a powerful SD660 processor, capable dual 12+20MP cameras, and USB Type-C. The Redmi Note 5 Pro does bring a few things to the table like

  • a dedicated 3.5mm headphone jack,
  • a MicroSD card slot,
  • and a larger battery.

But these Specs aren’t necessarily big features to choose it over the Mi 6X model. The 3010mAh battery, despite being average, should deliver a day’s life. With the increase in smartphone storage, fewer customers use MicroSD card slots these days. Also, there’s a decent Type-C adapter as an alternative to the headphone jack. In short, these shortcomings of the Xiaomi Mi 6X can be forgiven for the increased CPU and camera performance that it brings to the table.


Xiaomi Mi 6X vs Redmi Note 5 Pro: Prices

The Xiaomi has priced the new Mi 6X quite near the Redmi Note 5 Pro models. To recap, the RN5Pro (RN5 in China) was launched at 1399 Yuan (~$221) for the 4+64GB model and 1699 Yuan ($268) for the 6+64GB model. The same storage 4+64GB and 6+64GB configurations can be availed on the Xiaomi Mi 6X for a price of 1599 yuan (~$253) and 1799 Yuan (~$284) respectively. Even with a price cut for the Redmi Note 5 Pro model, it would still be a hard decision to choose it over the Mi 6X.
