Redmi Note 9 Pro VS Huawei P40 Lite | Comparative
Hello everyone, welcome to a new video this time we will face the Huawei P40 Lite VS the Redmi Note 9 ProThen let’s get started DESIGNBefore continuing with the video I remind you that we are raffling a redmi note 9 pro,a redmi note 9 and a Xiaomi mi note 10, yes you want to know the steps to follow clickon the card in the upper right what’s popping up on your screen,
The design of the Huawei p40 lite is a breakthroughto what has been presented with previous models, the finishes of this device are in glassboth on the back and on the front with touches of aluminum in all its frames.Here it should be noted that the rear is manufactured in “curved glass layers”, which gives amore plastic-like feel than to the glass. And thanks to this finish, the HuaweiP40 Lite is pleasant to the touch and not very slippery, although yes, it is a magnet for footprints.
Butfortunately the box includes a transparent cover, that helps both with grip and caringand protect your finishes. One of the novelties of this terminal is the fingerprint sensor locatedon the right side button, which also It is used to turn the device on and off.It should be noted that the fingerprint sensor works great, it’s fast and accurate. Addedto this the feeling in hand seemed pleasant, it is comfortable to hold with one hand andsay with two, it has a hole in the panel front located in the upper leftthat houses the front camera, something that personal mode seems nice if we compare itwith the front notch that takes away a good viewing experience.
This cell phonehas reduced frames, but they can get better at the bottom, taking intoaccount that does not have navigation buttons on your screen and is better handled with gesturespreset. Something characteristic of design is that it changes the location of itsrear cameras, to a small box, something that became a trend in the launches2020. Already at the bottom we have speaker, microphone, USB type portc and the Jack port for your headphones.
In its dimensions we will come across 159.2 x76.3 x 8.7 mm thick and weighing 183 grams. The most distinctive and different design elementwhat has this redmi note 9 pro has to be the back panel of the phone. Behindthe gradient was left and instead you get a very glossy panel with Gorilla protectionGlass 5. Of course, this makes it a fingerprint and scratch magnetso my recommendation is a protective case, to avoid any inconvenience. A greatvariant on this device is change to a side-mounted fingerprint reader.
This is built into the power key and despite the fact that in the past I came acrosssomewhat disappointing sensors in this position, this redmi note 9 pro is extremelyQuick to unlock the phone. He button is intuitively positioned and isvery easy to reach, even with just one hand. However, what is not so intuitiveis the non-segmented volume control. I know placed too high, so reach itit’s almost impossible without picking up the phone with both hands or move it awkwardly.
Inthe lower part we have the speaker, a microphone, the usb type c port and the much acclaimed jack3.5 millimeters, which is on the way extinction in case you hadn’t noticed.The feeling in hand is not so pleasant for its large size, but it is not disappointing either,I would say you end up getting used to that if it is to emphasize that this device isheavier than others of the same range. Yes we see it from the front we can appreciate that it hasgrateful and thin frames less in the lower edge that is a little wider,in addition to having a hole in the central part where the sensor for your camera will be located,which I must admit pleases me more than him notch that took up more space.
In theirdimensions we have 165.8 x 76.7 x 8.8 mm thick and weighing 209 grams.PROCESSOR In the Huawei P40 Lite we have a processorbrand of the house, specifically the Kirin 810 octa-core running 2.27GHz accompanied bya Mali-G52 MP6 GPU. A good chip for him price we are paying for the device.On that basis the experience promised to be good and so it has been. The terminal does not sufferof delays or obvious jerks and we can make full use of the terminal with agood fluency, both in multitasking and in games of great graphic demand. And hereWe have a point to highlight and that is that they exist games that are not compatible with the device,not so much for the specifications but for the fact of not having the endorsement of Google,a problem that became more evident in the year 2020.
However, removing this from the equationwe have a cell phone that is not the most powerful on the market, but for games like free fireyou will be able to play with a graphics configuration high, without any problem or fallin frames per second, plus time that I was playing with it, it didn’t get hotnor was it uncomfortable to manipulate. Already in everyday applications we have the samedrawback mentioned above and is that you will not be able to run Google applicationseither YouTube, Google maps, Gmail, between others … You can use these applicationsonly using the Huawei browser.
However, social networks and others if you caninstall them by the official store of this business. Which run quickly,you can use several in multitasking without no inconvenience or delay, as theprocessor in that sense works quite a lot well.This time the Redmi note 9 pro will count with a Snapdragon 720G octa-core processorrunning 2.3GHz, changing from the mediatek chip which had its previous version, that isthe Redmi note 8 pro. With this change it varies a bit its performance since according to antututhe processor of its predecessor was better. This processor is accompanied by an Adreno GPU618.
In terms of performance on the day a day with normal use is more than enough,the transition between applications is quite good with almost no lag or slowdownof any kind, and even when you have more of 4 applications open in multitasking.In demanding games or titles either pubg Mobile, free fire or the one of your preferencedevice managed to run with the graphics high, it has a good performance but in thisconfiguration, very occasionally you will run into with some drop in frames per second,so it is recommended that if you want play for a while you close all applicationsand leave only open the game, this way you will prevent this little one from appearingmishap, it gets hot if you play a long time, it is not too high a temperature orat least for me it was not uncomfortable for keep playing for a while.BATTERY This is one of the sections thatexpensive for the P40 Lite where the work of Huawei’s optimization is seen again, andis that we are facing a capacity of 4200 mAh, which will give us more than one day of autonomyNo problem.
In active screen tests playing multimedia content brightmaximum gave us an autonomy of 7 hours and approximately 20 minutes, which, althoughIt is not the best on the market, if it will give you many hours of visual entertainment, although thisit can go down a bit depending on the use that you give either with high demand gamesor multiple functions at the same time as this can further reduce your autonomy. Butwhich is undoubtedly one of the most strong is the incorporation of an efficient40W fast charging system.
With charger which is included in the box allowed us to loadfrom 0 to 100% in just under an hour, something very positive and that without a doubt we must thank.But not everything is rosy as it exists a small mole and is that some applicationsmust be achieved by external means, which are not optimized for the P40Lite will represent an energy consumption high. In my case it happened with Apple Musicand Spotify which are not available in the Huawei store and had to download theAPK directly, something that will undoubtedly download considerably the autonomy of thisequipment.
Something gratifying about this Redmi note terminal9 Pro is its large 5,020 mAh battery of capacity, which is accompanied by a goodcharger that allows fast charging of 30w, gives you some pretty good times, beatingeven to others of its competition. The autonomy of the device in active screen testsat maximum brightness was 11 hours, almost exactly the same one that I throw with the Redmi note 9, beingThis is a lower terminal, but it has the same battery.
This autonomy is moreenough to get through the day of use and even reach the second with a lot of load,with normal use, browsing, checking mail social networks etc … But if you are going toto play all day obviously that’s going to fall to a large extent, since with those settingsuses almost all terminal resources and therefore less autonomy. This is a sectionwho show their faces for Xiaomi cell phones, since I have only seen this type of capabilitiesin this company and Samsung.
SCREENThe p40 lite uses a screen with a diagonal 6.4-inch, with an IPS LCD panel. Thescreen resolution is Full HD +, 2310 × 1080 pixels, and the density is 398.The display here is good, with rich colors and good contrast. The shine, of course,not surprising, but outdoors the information remains readable. Tooit is nice to use it in the dark as minimal brightness does not annoyeyes directly.
Color reproduction can be adjusted by choosing one of the twopresets: with natural colors and saturated. Personally, I used the firstoption, but the color temperature is can adjust. However, the screen does notshows particularly well in certain angles. The dark tones become toogray, but only with a diagonal deviation, That rarely happens in reality. The screenhas a perforation on the top left for the front camera, whichwill have its fans and its detractors, but at the less is a solution that does not hinder muchviewing content.
About this, we have the option to adjust howthe content will be seen in full screen, where we can choose a black bar alonglong since piercing, but here it will be to the taste of each person. Among the optionswhat the terminal offers us to customize the experience with your screen is the modeintelligent resolution of the same, which automatically adjusts between High and Lowto optimize battery life. We can also leave it manually andchoose us the one that best fits our needs.The redmi note 9 pro has a screen 6.67-inch IPS LCD with a resolutionFUllHD + (1,080 x 2,400) and a density of 395 pixels. Protected with gorilla glass5.
The panel is correct in contrast and viewing angles, without problemsdisplay in any situation. Speaking of the use of the front, in this casewe see that the screen occupies 84.6% of it. Which is not bad for a mobile of themid-range, considering that the frames sides and top are relatively thinand that has a central hole that keeps the front camera. The maximum brightness is450 nits, with which we have missed a little more intensity when we’re inoutdoors, but indoors things change since the automatic brightness adjustment istoo high (and could be corrected to which improves energy savings).
This paneldespite not being amoled I liked it, since it gives you interesting colors, not so saturated orneither so cold nor warm, although you consider it this way you can modify itdirectly in your panel settings. CAMERAThe Huawei P40 Lite boasts a four module cameras where the main one is 48 megapixelswith 1.8 focal aperture, accompanied by a 8 sensor with wide angle and two more than2 megapixels each, where one is for the macro lens and another to capture the backgroundand offer the blur effect.
What you the P40 Lite would be missing is the telephoto, and it isthat although the interface tells us that we have 2X to 6X zoom, this is digital magnificationand non-optical, the results of which leave a lot to be desired when seeing the details in each photo.Another point to mention is that none camera has optical stabilizer, whichwill make us have a certain vibration in videos if there is a lot of movement, even in somephotos if we move just when shooting. In generally the results of the cameras arenormal, with good color reproduction, sharpness and textures, but with sufficient lighting,since in dark settings the processing Huawei makes us have noise and a kindsmoothing that makes photos look too artificial.
Here we will have betterresults if we decide to use the camera in manual mode, since the interpretation ofthe scene by the device using artificial intelligence is sometimes not correct.Something similar happens with autofocus, which is sometimes slow and not very accurate,more when there are several objects in the scene. A curious point is that the modeportrait is only able to recognize faces (humans and dolls), so we can notuse it on objects or pets, a decision strange when today several smartphonesallow to play with the blur in various scenarios beyond faces.
ByOn the other hand, the night mode will be a great ally if we take advantage of its possibilities, sincewhen shooting they will allow us to have up to six seconds of exposure automatically,something that outstandingly improves the sharpness of photos. And to finish we havethat has facial recognition, which works properly, recognizes faceeven wearing glasses. The redmi note 9 Pro continues with a configurationquad camera including a sensor 8MP ultra-wide with 2.2 focal aperture,a 2 MP depth sensor, as well as a rather questionable 5MP macro sensor,the latter two with focal aperture 2.4.
The main shooter this time, however,is a Samsung 64MP sensor with aperture focal 1.8. With these cameras it offersgood snapshots, I really liked them because they exceeded my expectations, mostOf the time, the color temperature and white balance are accurate, which isvery good in a photograph. Dynamic range not so bad either, but not all the detailsthey are held in the shadows. However, there are a certain smoothness in the captured imageswith this terminal, but details are missing surface level in many images.
Even ifwe must recognize that in some shots can appreciate a lot of noise which is noticeablezooming in. Meanwhile, Xiaomi did a particularly good jobwhen optimizing portrait mode and phone does a fantastic job of detectingof edges, creating an aspect blur natural. However, the night mode iswhere the Redmi Note 9 Pro wobbles, but does not fall as its results seem correct to mefor its price range, it enhances the colors and light in a certain way that pleases the simpleview, you already have to be very detailed to appreciate the errors it presents, which areVery few.
Still the picture is far to be praiseworthy, because even thoughI exceed my expectations it is clear that not are the best sensors on the market forthe range and even the hardware of the competition Realme destroys the Note 9 Pro in this regard.On the other hand, the 16 megapixel front camera behaves well gives us sharp images,with good detail, but not the best either From the market. In addition to all the above, thedevice has facial recognition, that this time it was more precise thanthe Redmi note 9, although it is still something to be improved by this company.
RAM For the P40 Lite we will run into a single6GB version For the Redmi Note 9 Pro we will run intotwo versions of 4 and 6gb although it is easier find your 6GB version, or good byleast in Colombia STORAGEIn the P40 Lite as in your Ram we will tell with a single 128GB version, which canbe further expanded with microSD cards up to 512GB.In the Redmi Note 9 Pro we will have two 64 and 128GB versions, which can be expandedeven more with microSD cards up to 512GB.DIFFERENCES The P40 Lite beats the Redmi Note 9 Pro in:Processor only For its part,
the Redmi Note 9 Pro beats it widelyto the P40 Lite in the following aspects Design, battery, screen, camera, RAM,storage and price WINNER!!!This confrontation is quite interesting, well, as is customary again, a deviceXiaomi beats up a rival who It is much more expensive, and in this case the victimIt was the p40 lite, who is only relegated with the processor section, which is importantbut if we add the redmi note 9 pro it takes all other points.
