In 2019, the improvement in the camera section appears to be incredible. Even the mid-end flagships are featuring 48MP dual cameras by the start of this year. However, the question is does a mid-end flagship camera performance can outperform a high-end flagship camera, despite the enormous price difference. That is why we are doing this Redmi Note 7 Pro Vs Honor V20 (View 20) camera comparison.
First of all, let us clear one thing. Both smartphones belong to different price category. Redmi Note 7 Pro is a mid-end flagship featuring Snapdragon 675. Meanwhile, Honor V20 (View 20) is a high-end flagship incorporating the latest Kirin 980 SoC. View 20/V20 performance is almost twice that of Redmi Note 7 Pro (300,000 points vs 157,000 points on AnTuTu).
Though View 20 takes the lead in the design and appearance section with a unique punch hole notch and superior glass + metal built. However, Redmi Note 7 Pro is also a nice option with the trending water-drop notch under a stupendously low price tag.
Redmi Note 7 Pro is priced at 1599 yuan (239 USD) which is budget-friendly. Meanwhile, the Honor V20 (View 20) has a price tag of 2,999 yuan (435 USD). As you can see the price difference between the Redmi Note 7 Pro and View 20 is tremendous.
However, despite the price difference, there are a few things that are similar in both flagships. These include the battery capacity which is 4000mAh, Android 9.0, and last but not the least, the rear camera configuration.
Redmi Note 7 Pro features a 48MP Sony IMX 586 ISOCELL primary camera (1.6μm four-in-one pixel, a 6P lens module, f/1.79 large aperture) coupled with a 5MP secondary camera.
In addition, Redmi Note 7 Pro also supports AI studio lighting, AI smart beauty, AI background blur (specially optimized for girl’s self-portrait scenes), AI scene camera (smart recognition of 12 scenes), AI face unlock, 19.5: 9 full-screen photos. At the same time, it is equipped with a 13 MP front camera.
On the other side, Honor V20 (View 20) comes with the same 48MP Sony IMX 586 primary camera but a 1/2 inch CMOS BSI type sensor (0.8 µm/pixel, HDR 12 MP night shots, f /1.8). Rather than the secondary lens, we have the groundbreaking 3D ToF sensor enabling 3D body shaping, so you can look perfect in your full-height pictures. The front camera is 25MP as well.
In short, Redmi Note 7 Pro is in advantage of featuring the dual camera configuration with the 5MP secondary camera. Let’s see how this will affect the samples:
In the first picture, the Redmi Note 7 Pro camera can easily distinguish between the dark and the illuminated sources in the picture. However, Honor V20 failed to do so. The Mi logo can easily be seen in the Note 7 Pro camera but is over-exposed in the Honor View 20 camera.
In terms of light exposure in a dark environment, the Redmi Note 7 Pro has more visibility to the picture. The dark section of the salad is still visible. Meanwhile, the same part is not visible from the camera of V20.
Redmi Note 7 Pro again has the upper hand in the details of an image thanks to the dual camera configuration. As you can see in the picture, the texture is smooth and distinguishable in Redmi Note 7 Pro camera. However, such details aren’t witnessed in View 20 camera, resulting in blurriness.
Both smartphones have a huge difference in the color and contrast of the picture, despite having the same sensor. The difference is noticeable, especially in night light.
Redmi Note 7 Pro has sharp contrast and vivid colors along with the natural look. However, the contrast and colors are light in View 20 camera and have a washed out effect in overall picture quality.
Ending the Redmi Note 7 Pro Vs Honor V20 (View 20) camera comparison, despite the price difference and having the same camera sensor, Redmi Note 7 Pro rear camera easily outperforms the camera of Honor V20 (View 20). The credit goes to the large pixel, dual camera configuration of the Redmi Note 7 Pro.
