But today’s technology doesn’t much focus on a brand unless they serve the best. So, today we are here to analyze the specification between Samsung’s Galaxy J6 and Xiaomi Redmi Note 5 AI.

Talking about the display, Galaxy J6 comes with a 5.6inchess super AMOLED display whereas the Redmi Note 5 AI comes with 5.9inches IPS display. Although the Galaxy J6 packs a super AMOLED display it has  720 X 1480 resolution(203 PPI density) whereas Redmi Note 5 AI comes with the 1080X2160(403 PPI) resolution. Likewise, Redmi Note 5 consists of the Gorilla Glass Panel for protecting its display while the Galaxy J6 lacks it.

Software And Performance:

Both Galaxy J6 and Note 5 AI runs on Android 8.0 oreo. Xiaomi’s Redmi Note 5 AI has MIUI 9 in order to handle its UI whereas the Galaxy J6 has its own Samsung experience UI 9 for UI.

Similarly, Galaxy J6 packs Exynos 7870 SOC which consists of Cortex-A53 being octa-core but are clocked at 1.6GHZ. Whereas the Xiaomi Redmi Note 5:AI packs Snapdragon 636 SOC, which is also Octa- Core with Kyro clocked at 1.8GHZ. Both of the SOCs are of 14nm fabrication but while talking about the clock speed Snapdragon 636 steals the show. Now talking about the GPU Galaxy J6 packs  Mali-T830 MP1, which is nowhere near to Adreno 509 when it comes to gaming performance. This makes the Snapdragon be the stronger opponent as both the CPU clock speed as well as the GPU are good comparing it with Mali-T830 MP1 and Exynos 7878.

Memory wise, the Galaxy J6 comes with 3GB RAM and 32 GB of storage but, we also have a 4GB+64GB variant. Similarly, the Redmi Note 5 AI also comes with 3GB of RAM and 32/64GB of storage and, 4GB + 64 GB variant is also available. Both of these supports the MicroSD card that can be expanded up to 256 GB.


Moving on with the camera  Samsung Galaxy J6 incorporates a 13MP camera with f/1.9 as its rear camera. Unlike  Galaxy J6 the Redmi Note 5 AI has a dual-camera at the rear position; one of 12 MP with f/1.9, and another of 5MP with f/2.0.  Both of these have LED Flashlights. Thus, checking these specifications Redmi Note- 5 AI takes a stand regarding the rear camera.

Now, talking about the selfie camera Redim Note 5 AI has a 13MP of selfie camera with f/2.0. Likewise, Samsung Galaxy J6 has an 8MP of selfie camera with f/1.9. And LED selfie flash is available in both of these smartphones. Both devices should take good selfies in good lighting conditions but Redmi Note 5 AI has a slight edge over Galaxy J6 as it comes with AI integrated on its cameras.

Security and Battery:

Both Redmi Note 5 AI and Samsung Galaxy J6 have managed to include the fingerprint unlock as well as the face unlock feature, which is quite impressive. So, both of the smartphones are fully facilitated with face unlock and fingerprint unlock.

Now, talking about battery J6 lacks a bit behind as it packs Li-Ion 3000nmAh of non-removable blue battery whereas the Redmi Note 5 AI has Li-Po 4000mah non-removable battery. Seeing this, the battery in Redmi Note 5 AI should last longer than in the Galaxy J6. On the other hand, the Galaxy J6  lacks the fast charging facility which is also quite depressing. Whereas Redmi Note 5 AI does support fast charging feature but you have to buy a fast charger separately.


Redmi Note 5 AI starts with 25,999 for the 3GB variant and NRP 29,999 for the 4GB variant. Likewise, the Galaxy J6 starts with NRP 24,790 for the 3+32GB variant and NRP 29,090 for the 4+64GB variant.
