    Competition has grown rapidly since the Redmi Note 5 Pro

    A year later, the Redmi Note 5 Pro is still a great option as an all-rounder but is constantly being ignored thanks to far better hardware offered by the competition.

    There's the powerful Honor 8X, the Realme 2 Pro that comes with bragging rights and the polished Nokia 6.1 Plus.

    Xiaomi's cutthroat pricing should be its saving grace this time around going purely by the specifications on paper.

    The tried and tested Qualcomm Snapdragon 636

    With Xiaomi sticking to the Qualcomm Snapdragon 636 SoC with the new Note 6 Pro for the second year, it remains to be seen how the smartphone competes with the rest of the competition in terms of performance. Competition aside, Xiaomi's own devices seem to be cannibalising other smartphones in its own stable. The Android One-powered Mi A2 is a great option for those who are willing to spend little more but will get a drastic jump in performance. So yes, it all boils down to those price tags!
