I was planning to but redmi note 7 pro 6gb+128 gb. Now one plus 6t(8gb+128gb) has a huge price drop. Still there’s a difference of 10000/-.

Which one should I go for? I am currently using redmi note 4(3+32gb)

Ask this yourself bro, do you really Need an upgrade to OP and bear extra 10k? Or just go for RN7 pro and invest those 10k? All depends on you. You know your situation better bro.

Get the redmi note 7 pro or poco f1.. Not worth spending more than that on a phone

yea 28k is too much to put on a phone but redmi phones wont last more than 2 years. One plus should last more, no?

Plus redmi has this cluttered UI and keeps hanging(atleast on my current phone), can’t say how they perform on note 7 pro though

Yea but is it wise to invest on redmi brand for so much money when you can get a decent one plus in the same price?

Xiaomi has an ad infested pos os. Even in the basic services they inject adwares, they process your sms to create your digital profiles. Who knows what they do with them. With other phone atleast you don’t have to worry about these issues from the get go, it’s upto you to download shady apps for such shit to start but in Xiaomi you’re effed from the get go. Pretty unethical. Even manu jain admitted this and said the only wrong thing they did was tell people that they were pushing ads, he thinks it would have been better if they had just kept quiet and kept pushing the ads.

Buy poco f1 instead of redmi note 7 pro ( price difference is marginal for the spec upgrade you get )

Or else I would say at this point it’s better to wait for redmi k20 or k20 pro instead if you don’t mind miui.

Go for oneplus 7 instead of 6t.

Or save some money and buy a used one plus 6 for 15-16k if you can get one in good condition if you prefer oxygen os.

Bro you are saying you can afford and yet you don’t seem like having the willingness to spend ₹10k extra.
Keep in mind if you are thinking about flagship phones from OnePlus then it will come with a fat price tag.
And on the other hand if you are so fed up with Redmi and MIUI then why you thinking about it?

Please don’t think about buying any other brand other than OnePlus or Redmi in this price range.

No email default notification sound for Outlook mail, no multi color LED notification light like RN4 or not amooled screen. These are the major cons. for disliking the phone.

The only reason to prefer MIUI is that it allows dual apps for almost any app which is very helpful for me. Wish other smartphones had this feature.

6t at 5k less than op7 is I think a good deal. you only get a better camera and marginally better processor. plus 6t is 8gb ram at 5k less

Yea bro will either buy one plus or rn7 pro.

Although the ads and constant shutting down of apps in MIUI irritates me, the dual app feature is really good and helps me a lot. No other brand offers that afaik. One plus is an upgrade but 10k seems too much for that.

OP 6T is much faster & RN7 pro is a tad overpriced.

What about the third party apps for dual apps ?

There is also 2k bank discount on 7 which i don’t see on 6t. Or is it available for both ?
If not then that would make the difference only 3k.
For that you get 855 with significantly better graphics performance than the predecessor.
Upto 15% upgrade in CPU performance and somewhere around 30% faster graphics than 845.
Although these are officiall claims and how much of that translates into day to day performance is anyone’s guess.
Ufs 3.0 storage.
Faster optical scanner than 6T.
The difference is worth it imo even at 5k.
You won’t get any noticeable performance boost bw 6 and 8 gigs ram in day to day activities.
Unless you keep too many apps in memory or a bit in gaming.
6gigs is more than enough.
Coupled with 855 procesor 6 gig op7 would actually perform better.

Good comparision but how many using peak graphics/cpu performace to feel better of 7. Ufs 2.0 or 3.0 does’t make much difference until we do lot of data transfers. Only advantage in 7 w.r.t common user is better camera and 6T advantage of 5K lesser price.
