For the first time, the Redmi Note series model received an NFC chip for contactless payment. This feature has become one of the most significant advantages of Redmi Note 8 Pro. Equally important advantages are a 4,500 mAh battery and a camera with a 64 MP sensor.

For all this, the manufacturer decided to equip the Pro version with a processor from MediaTek. The Helio G90T chip is positioned as a gaming chip, and it is really very powerful, at least according to the AnTuTu benchmark. There he scores over 280,000 points, and this is the bar of last year’s flagships.

For comparison, the results of Redmi Note 8 smartphones with Snapdragon 665 are about 125,000 points. It turns out, in terms of performance, Note 8 Pro is at least twice as much as its “younger brother”, and this is largely due to the Mali-G76MC4 graphics accelerator.

This gap can be felt both in games and in everyday use of the device, but it is not at all a fact that in terms of energy efficiency and optimization in general, the MediaTek chip will perform better than Snapdragon. AnTuTu's “parrots” alone are not enough to draw final conclusions about its superiority. To do this, wait for more detailed tests and comparisons.

If you do not take into account possible unpleasant surprises of the MediaTek processor, then the Redmi Note 8 Pro, of course, looks a cut above Redmi Note 8. The latter attracts only at a price – now it costs about 12,000 rubles, and the Pro version is almost 16,000 rubles.

If you often take pictures, play a lot of demanding mobile games and want to use contactless payment, then it's really worth overpaying 4,000.
