Both devices have large battery capacities but the Note 6 Pro’s is slightly higher. We’re yet to test the battery life of both devices but on paper, the Redmi Note 6 Pro looks better.

To summarize, the Honor 8X is a good pick when it comes to the viewing experience, storage size, and overall performance while the Xiaomi Redmi Note 6 Pro is a better choice when you want more screen protection, quad cameras, and a larger battery capacity.

    I choose the Honor 8x because of the dedicated dedicated microSD card slot.
    For the Xiaomi Redmi Note 6 Pro, you have to sacrifice either the 2nd SIM or the microSD, you cannot have both.
    But for Honor 8x, you have both.
    So Honor 8x is the winner.
