Xiaomi Redmi Note 8 Pro vs. Samsung Galaxy A50: Which is the best smartphone? - Comparative

Around 250 euros, two smartphones stand out clearly: the Xiaomi Redmi Note 8 Pro and the Samsung Galaxy A50. But which one is the best? Comparative!

Released at 350 euros last April, the Samsung Galaxy A50 has quickly established itself as a very good smartphone. Six months later, its price has dropped and it is now available for one hundred euros less, making it an excellent value for money. His dominance was almost complete until the recent arrival of the Xiaomi Redmi Note 8 Pro on the same price segment.

The question then arises: who of Samsung Galaxy A50 and Xiaomi Redmi Note 8 Pro is the best smartphone according to your criteria? Design, screen, performance, software, battery, camera ... we compare the Galaxy A50 and the Redmi Note 8 Pro point by point!

Design: a "heavy" difference
On this price range, we do not expect that smartphones are particularly original. They usually repeat the design of flagships last year - even before - without too much innovation. Do not wait here mechanism particularly developed to remove the notch, the two smartphones are very similar when viewed from the front with their relatively thin edges and notch in water drop.

To differentiate a Galaxy A50 from a Redmi Note 8 Pro, it is necessary to return these smartphones to focus on their backs. Plastic "glass effect" on the first, and glass - plastic effect - on the second, the back shell is slightly curved on the sides to perfectly match the curves of the hand and offer a pleasant grip.

It is at the level of the template that the difference is really played in the end. 8.79 mm thick and 200 grams on the scale for the Redmi Note 8 Pro, and 7.7 mm for 158 grams for the Galaxy A50. The difference is not negligible. For comparison, 200 grams is the weight of the Galaxy Note 9. This thickness and weight can still be explained by a battery difference, but we will come back to it in the appropriate part.

The biometric recognition is also to the advantage of Samsung since the fingerprint sensor is housed under the screen, where Xiaomi has chosen to integrate the back. This choice would not be a problem if the finger should not land just under the photo module, dirtying it for sure. Gymnastics is necessary to get used to his placement.

In the left corner, the Chinese challenger displays a diagonal of 6.53 inches in Full HD + on a very good LCD panel IPS, bright and contrasted. However, there is a temperature too high and a delta E (difference in color with reality) flies a little. A point that would shock on a high-end smartphone, but that does not seem a problem here.

In the right corner, the all-Korean champion with a diagonal of 6.4 inches in Full HD +. We are here on an AMOLED technology that offers infinite contrasts and a brightness that rises to 622 cd / m². It's dazzling! Beside that, the colors are not extremely accurate, but with a temperature of 7000 K against 7970 K for Xiaomi, it is closer to the 6500 K that is expected on a slab excellently calibrated.

In both cases we are on a very good slab for the price, but it is difficult to resist the wealth of the AMOLED and Samsung knows it well.
