Today, we are comparing the three popular smartphones under Rs. 10,000, the Samsung Galaxy J7 Nxt, Xiaomi Redmi Note 4, and the Xiaomi Redmi Y1. These three smartphones have launched this year, and they target different users and different markets. Xiaomi has already proven how good its smartphones are in the budget and mid-range price category. Whereas, Samsung is notoriously known for its laggy performance. Let us see how the Samsung’s J7 Nxt compares with the other two smartphones from Xiaomi.
Redmi Y1 vs Samsung Galaxy J7 Nxt vs Redmi Note 4: Display
The Samsung Galaxy J7 Nxt is equipped with an AMOLED display in spite of being so affordable. As a result of the AMOLED display, we expect the J7 Nxt to have a better sunlight visibility than the Xiaomi Redmi Note 4 and the Xiaomi Redmi Y1, which come with an IPS LCD display. As for the sharpness, the Xiaomi Redmi Note 4 dominates the other two smartphones with its Full HD resolution compared to the HD resolution of the other two smartphones. In terms of screen-size, all the three smartphones have a 5.5-inch display.
Redmi Y1 vs Samsung Galaxy J7 Nxt vs Redmi Note 4: Camera
The Xiaomi Redmi Note 4 has the best primary camera hardware, at least on the paper. It has a 13MP sensor with phase-detection autofocus and dual-tone dual-LED flash. The Xiaomi Redmi Y1 also features a 13MP sensor with phase-detection autofocus, but unlike the Redmi Note 4, the Redmi Y1 has a single LED flash. Coming to the Samsung Galaxy J7 Nxt, it neither has phase-detection autofocus, nor the dual-tone dual-LED flash. The J7 Nxt features a traditional 13-megapixel sensor with an LED flash.
Moving to the front-facing camera, the Redmi Y1 is equipped with the highest resolution camera among the three smartphones, a 16-megapixel sensor with an LED flash. The Samsung Galaxy J7 Nxt has a 5-megapixel front-facing camera with an LED flash. The Xiaomi Redmi Note 4 features traditional 5-megapixel camera without an LED flash.
Redmi Y1 vs Samsung Galaxy J7 Nxt vs Redmi Note 4: Performance
The Xiaomi Redmi Note 4 is equipped with Qualcomm Snapdragon 625 processor, and it is comparatively more powerful than the processors of the other two smartphones. As you might have guessed, the Xiaomi Redmi Note 4 has the fastest performance of the lot, which is a result of powerful processor and the optimised software. The smartphone is available in 16GB, 32GB, and 64GB storage options. The 16GB variant comes with 2GB of RAM, whereas, the 32GB and 64GB variants are equipped with 3GB and 4GB RAM capacities.
The Xiaomi Redmi Y1 has Qualcomm Snapdragon 435 processor, which has comparatively less power than the Qualcomm Snapdragon 625 processor. However, it is quite sufficient to carry out almost all the basic day-to-day tasks. The Xiaomi Redmi Y1 is available in 32GB and 64 storage options with 3GB and 4GB RAM capacities. Coming to the Samsung Galaxy J7 Nxt, it has the least powerful processor of the lot, an octa-core Exynos 7870 processor. The lesser powerful processor in combination with heavy and laggy Samsung UI may become an issue in long-term usage.
On the software front, all the three smartphones ship with Android 7.0 Nougat operating system. The Xiaomi Redmi Note 4 and the Xiaomi Redmi Y1 are customised with MIUI 9, whereas, the Galaxy J7 Nxt uses Samsung Experience UI.
Redmi Y1 vs Samsung Galaxy J7 Nxt vs Redmi Note 4: Android 8.0 Oreo update
Unlike other smartphone manufacturers who generally don’t provide budget smartphones with newer versions of operating system, Xiaomi is known for updating its smartphones with newer versions of Android for a longer time. In addition to that, the Xiaomi Redmi Note 4 and the XIaomi Redmi Y1 are very popular devices. So, there is a very good chance that these two smartphones will get Android 8.0 Oreo update. So far, there has been no official information from Xiaomi about the Android 8.0 Oreo update for these two smartphones.
The Samsung Galaxy J7 Nxt is least likely to receive the Android 8.0 Oreo update as the company has a very poor history of updating its budget smartphones with newer versions of Android.
