In our last comparison, we pitted the Xiaomi Redmi Note 9 Pro against the Realme 6, which made for a pretty close fight. So, we decided to put the top-end models of both these smartphone OEMs to the test. So, let’s see how the Redmi Note 9 Pro Max fares against the Realme 6 Pro.

Both phones have pretty similar displays with Xiaomi opting for a slightly larger screen. However, the big difference arises in the refresh rate, where Realme has a clear advantage. If not for its 90Hz refresh rate, there’d be little difference between the Realme 6 Pro and Redmi Note 9 Pro Max.

On the performance front, we’d have to side with the Redmi Note 9 Pro Max. While both phones pack the same chipset, with a starting price of Rs 14,999, the Redmi Note 9 Pro Max offers a better price-to-performance.

Both the Realme 6 Pro and Redmi Note 9 Pro Max get a 64-megapixel quad-camera setup on the back. However, one can argue that Realme’s four cameras offer more versatility than the camera setup on the Redmi Note 9 Pro Max. Additionally, Realme also offers a dual-camera setup on the front as opposed to the single shooter on the Redmi Note 9 Pro Max.

On the battery front, Xiaomi not only has a marginal advantage in terms of charging speed, but it also offers a bigger battery capacity. In terms of software, we prefer Realme UI over MIUI 11. Bloatware is significantly reduced on the Realme UI, bringing the overall experience closer to stock Android.
