These not only have a design very consistent with what the market regulations dictate, with a very well used front and a large screen, but also its specifications shine inside. Among them is the capable Qualcomm Snapdragon 665 processor, a 4 GB RAM memory and a storageInternal management that goes from the 64 GB of the Redmi Note 8T to the fantastic 128 GB of the realme 5.

They are accompanied by a photographic bet with four rear cameras (main, wide angle, macro and depth sensor) with a night mode that shines by itself, especially in the case of the realme bet, as we saw in our analysis, and places it as the best bet in the segment. However, the photographic set is somewhat superior in the case of the Xiaomi device, with that 48-megapixel main sensor.

It should also be mentioned that, if realme 5 has a gigantic 5,000 mAh battery, which will serve to reach practically two days without recharging the terminal, the Xiaomi Redmi Note 8T has NFC to be able to make mobile payments. Two devices very closely matched in general terms in which one must decide which points interest him the most for his daily use.

Among those mentioned, the Motorola Moto E6 Plus and Xiaomi Redmi 8, two lines that have reaped remarkable success for both firms over time and that are a guarantee of quality, in general terms. They stand out in a special way for those 64 GB of internal storage, which will guarantee that the months of use of the device do not end up having a negative impact on the experience as the space fills up, something that will happen more quickly in the case of 32 GB (although in all of them it can be increased through a microSD card). Also for the 4 GB of RAM memory, which can provide an extra in the final performance.

However, the palm is taken by the Redmi 8 with its 5,000 mAh battery, which also have fast charging and provide extra autonomy for the daily user. Beyond this, they are all balanced teams within their range, with camera and power at a correct point, but not outstanding, and which are not capable of matching the aforementioned realme 5 or Note 8T. In any case, they manage to offer benefits that ensure sustained performance over the months.

The prices of the devices may vary over time with respect to those reflected in this article.
