REDMI NOTE 8 vs GALAXY A30S:DETAILED GUIDE
REDMI NOTE 8 vs GALAXY A30S:
The Redmi Note 8 is a sales success and has also been attracting the attention of the Brazilian public. The proof of this is that the Xiaomi intermediary was the most searched cell phone on the website in the last times. But do you know which other device became very popular among Brazilians? The Galaxy A30S. Which is better and which is more worth your money? That’s what we’re going to help you find out in this comparison.
REDMI NOTE 8 vs GALAXY A30S:DESIGN
The design doesn’t change much between the two – they are the same size and adopt a drop-shaped notch to reduce the bezels. If you insist on having the best screen-to-body ratio, you will prefer the Samsung for having a thinner frame. The Xiaomi is a little heavier due to the rear glass while the Galaxy has a plastic finish. The cameras are vertically aligned in the left rear corner. The difference is that the Note 8 has one more sensor. Xiaomi adopted a color pattern with a gradient effect and Samsung opted for something more exotic with blocks that have three-dimensional reflections that shine different tones depending on the angle that the light touches the surface of the device. Which is more beautiful? The choice is up to you.
REDMI NOTE 8 vs GALAXY A30S:TECHNOLOGY
Biometrics technology is also distinctive – on the Galaxy, you have the biometric reader on the screen despite being a more advanced technology it takes longer to read your fingerprint than the standard sensor on the back of the Note 8. There is a headphone jack on both, USB-C connection and 5 GHz Wi-Fi. The Galaxy has the most advanced Bluetooth 5, while the Redmi brings extra an infrared sensor at the top. Each one has its advantages, so we will give each one a point at the beginning.
REDMI NOTE 8 vs GALAXY A30S:SCREEN
The Galaxy A30S screen is larger, however, with lower resolution. What can compensate is the Super AMOLED panel that displays real blacks when turning off the pixels. This helps with the night theme, making the battery yield more and also ends up causing less visual fatigue when using the phone in the dark. The Redmi screen stands out for its superior brightness, which helps you use your phone outside the home especially on sunny days. Color reproduction is well balanced by default, displaying images close to reality. While the Galaxy loves to saturate everything – you can reduce that saturation by changing the calibration profile.
REDMI NOTE 8 vs GALAXY A30S:SOUND
In the sound part neither one stands out, we have mono and unbalanced sound with a great focus on the treble. The Redmi Note 8 is a little better. It doesn’t sacrifice as many midfielders as the Galaxy. And the overall volume is slightly higher. However, the sound of both distorts when the volume is at maximum. Only the Samsung comes with a headset, but the accessory is very basic and not even worth using. If you are looking for a good phone to listen to music, either one can answer you but if you are demanding and want a loud and clear sound, you will be disappointed with both. We will set a draw for the screen and sound.
REDMI NOTE 8 vs GALAXY A30S:SOFTWARE
On the software side, we have Android with a very modified interface on both. Samsung is ahead of Xiaomi with Android 10 already available on the A30S, while there is still no date for the most current version of the little robot will be released for the Redmi Note 8, which we can expect that arrive in the coming months together with MIUI 12. Each system has its differentials – in the case of the A30S it is the digital TV with window mode support, which allows you to watch your favorite programming while using other apps. Note 8 is possible to control electronics with the infrared on top it works well, being compatible with several devices. In terms of fluidity and system response, we think that One UI 2.0 is better optimized and that will be a differentiator for many. And finally, we have a tiebreaker, with one more point for the Galaxy A30S.
REDMI NOTE 8 vs GALAXY A30S:PERFOMANCE
Equipping the Redmi Note 8 we have the Snapdragon 665 platform, the same present in several intermediaries that we tested in the last months. The Galaxy A30S comes with Samsung’s own hardware, the Exynos 7904 – which one is faster? In our standardized multi-task speed test we had an advantage in Samsung that was 18 seconds faster. This is where we see that MIUI does not make good use of the Note 8 hardware. Other phones with the same processor were faster in our tests. In benchmarks, we have higher scores with the Chinese model, which is more important for you, greater speed in actual use or having high numbers to make friends jealous? At least it doesn’t disappoint in games and ran all the titles we tested with the same fluidity as the Galaxy We give the A30S one more point for the best overall performance. 4,000 mAh battery has become standard in intermediate smartphones, and this is the case with Xiaomi models and Samsung. Does this mean that both deliver similar autonomy? Almost that. The A30S yields a little more due to the lower resolution screen. Those who have a more basic use pattern will have a battery that lasts the whole day with both. You can even risk some games or take some selfies during the day without worrying running out of battery before going to sleep. Another advantage of the Samsung model is the recharge time. it takes a little less to go from 0 to 100%. In the battery category, we give a double point to the Samsung cell phone.
REDMI NOTE 8 vs GALAXY A30S:CAMERA
In the number of cameras, we have an advantage for the Note 8. In addition to the main, wide-angle and depth, present in the A30S, it also has an extra module for macros – not always having a higher resolution guarantees higher photographic quality, but the Xiaomi model makes better use of its 48 MP sensor. In open-air photos with good lighting, we have great photos with both. The problem is that Samsung loves to saturate the photos way too much. I recommend disabling artificial intelligence, as many details are lost due to aggressive post-processing. The wide-angle helps when shooting wider scenarios and delivers better photos on Redmi. It also suffers less from darker locations and brings more aggressive night mode, but this leaves the photos grainy. The blur sensor works well on both and if you need to shoot something up close the macro camera on Note 8 to assist you. Here the Xiaomi model takes point for having a better photographic experience. The Note 8’s front camera has a lower resolution, but make no mistake it does a better job than the Galaxy, recording selfies in more detail and better color representation. The A30S tends to smooth out skin defects. Some people like it, others don’t. Background blur is also better on the Chinese model, they both do a good job, but Note 8 has a more intense blur and better separation between the planes. And one more point for Xiaomi for the better front-racing camera And closing the camera part we have the camcorder. The Xiaomi records in 4K and the Galaxy is limited to only Full HD. Can we give another victory to the Redmi Note 8? Calm down, it’s not that simple. Although limited to a lower resolution, videos captured by the A30S have better quality. The stabilization control is similar between the two, as is the focus. However, the audio captured by the A30S is cleaner. Here each one takes a point.
REDMI NOTE 8 vs GALAXY A30S:PRICES
The two really fight seriously and show that they are on the same level, but for many people what matters is which one is cheaper . The note 8 is arrived for $200 and A30s is about $250 . Xiaomi phones suffered a lot from the high dollar price and the Redmi Note 8 is much more expensive than the A30S today, reaching an average difference of $ 50. And that takes into account the price of the model sold in the marketplace. While at Galaxy you pay less and still get a product with a national warranty of 1 year. The A30S takes a point in our comparison for its best cost-benefit ratio.
REDMI NOTE 8 vs GALAXY A30S:CONCLUSION
The Redmi Note 8 is a good middleman, but the price hike makes buying complicated. Paying less you take the A30S, which is a thinner and lighter cell phone which has a screen with slimmer bezels, superior performance, better battery, less recharge time and the most updated software, with Android 10. Now if you have a cell phone with a better finish, a brighter screen, universal remote control and better cameras is what matters most to you, it’s worth waiting for the Note 8 price to drop because paying almost $ 200 on it is quite salty. Take the opportunity to comment below: do you think the warranty is needed when buying a cell phone in the marketplace? I wrap up here, a big hug, and see you next time.
