Design

Huawei Honor 10 Lite is one of the most beautiful and attractive phones thanks to its futuristic and flagship-like design. It has a wonderful glass back available in gradient color variants, as well as a very high screen-to-body ratio thanks to a narrow chin and a waterdrop notch. Oppo Realme 2 Pro is beautiful too, but it is made of polycarbonate, unlike the Honor 10 Lite. Xiaomi Redmi Note 6 Pro has a full metal body which is all but stunning at a first glance.

 

Display

All average IPS panels, they have nothing special and just an average viewing quality. So do not choose the best smartphone for you by basing on the display. We can just tell you that Honor 10 Lite and Oppo Realme 2 Pro have narrower bezels and smaller notches, so you may like them more.

 

Specs & Software

Oppo Realme 2 Pro is the phone which performs better thanks to its more powerful Snapdragon 660 chipset. It is a better SoC especially for gaming, and it is paired with up to 8 GB of RAM and up to 128 GB of internal storage on the Realme 2 Pro, while Xiaomi Redmi Note 6 Pro and Honor 10 Lite offer max 6 GB of RAM. Honor 10 Lite is customized by the EMUI based on Android Pie, while Xiaomi Redmi Note 6 Pro and Realme 2 Pro have MIUI and Color OS based on Android Oreo.

 

Camera

The dual rear cameras of these handsets are more or less at the same levels with bright apertures and a decent level of detail even when light conditions are not the best. The front camera of Xiaomi Redmi Note 6 Pro makes the difference if you love selfies as it is paired with a secondary depth sensor. But overall, it is a draw.

 

Battery

Xiaomi Redmi Note 6 Pro is much better than Realme 2 Pro and Honor 10 Lite when it comes to battery life because it has a much bigger lithium unit with a 4000 mAh capacity. Further, its Snapdragon 636 is a very efficient SoC and it is optimized in an excellent way.

 

Price

There is not a clear winner of this comparison and each of these devices is very close to each other. I would personally pick Oppo Realme 2 Pro due to its better performance, but if you want more battery life go for the Redmi Note 6 Pro, while if you are looking for the best design choose Honor 10 Lite. While Honor 10 Lite and Realme 2 Pro start from about €175/$200 in China,  Redmi Note 6 Pro costs about €190/$216.
