​​​​​​Xiaomi Redmi 6 or Redmi 6 Pro

You might wonder why I’m including the Xiaomi Redmi 6 in this article. Well, the main reason is the CPU. The standard Xiaomi Redmi 6 has same processor as the almighty tecno camon 11 Pro, that is the Mediatek MT6762 Helio P22 SoC. The major downside of the Redmi 6 however, is in the display. You have just a compact Notch-less 5.45-inch HD+ Display, which is farther than the 6.2-inch Notch display on the Camon 11 Pro.
