Realme 6 Pro vs Redmi Note 9 Pro: Camera comparison

The camera apps of both the phones look similar, but they are slightly different from each other in features. For example, the camera app on the Realme 6 Pro has a toggle button for 5x zoom. In this, Night Mode can be used with wide-angle and selfie cameras. You can even enable ‘Ultra Steady’ stabilization mode while shooting videos. The Redmi Note 9 Pro also comes with some cool features like ‘short video’ recording mode, shortcut to open Google lens and easy access shortcut to change video resolution or switch to macro mode.
During the day, the primary sensors of both the phones capture pictures in good detail, with HDR also doing a decent job. A little warm tone is visible in the pictures taken with the Redmi Note 9 Pro. In contrast, the pictures in Reality 6 Pro come with Balance Tone. Wide-angle shots are also good, but the quality and details in both the phones fall slightly compared to the primary camera sensor.
Macro shots taken on both the smartphones don’t seem to lack detail, but in our tests, we found that the Realme 6 Pro boosted the red color too much. When it comes to extreme close-ups, the Redmi Note 9 Pro took better macro shots than the Realme 6 Pro due to its high-resolution macro sensor.
The camera setup of Reality 6 Pro supports 2x optical zoom. We found some sharp details and good color pictures in it. The Redmi Note 9 Pro also delivered a decent output with its 2x digital zoom, but a closer comparison revealed that the photos taken with the Realme 6 Pro came with slightly better sharpness and detail.
Let’s come to the selfie camera. The Realme 6 Pro captured our subject’s face with better skin tone and better detail. HDR was not very effective here, but the good thing is that the selfie itself came with a good exposure. The Redmi Note 9 Pro exposes the background better, but our subject’s face was dark, lacking in detail. The wide-angle front camera of the Realme 6 Pro is quite handy, as it lets you capture a lot of people in one frame.
The Realme 6 Pro clearly outperforms the Redmi Note 9 Pro in low-light landscapes. Photos taken in the dark with the Reality 6 Pro show good exposure on objects. Switching to Night Mode, the camera of the Realme 6 Pro becomes better, but the interesting thing is that the photos in the Night Mode of the Note 9 Pro also do not look bad, or there is not much difference between the two. Shooting at night with the wide-angle cameras of both phones gives poor results, but the Realme 6 Pro offers an option to use Night Mode for this sensor as well, which improves things up a bit.
When it comes to shooting close-ups in low light, the Redmi Note 9 Pro really struggles a bit to set focus on small objects like flowers, while the Realme 6 Pro has no problem. After several tries, the Note 9 Pro finally managed to lock focus, but the photos weren’t as exposed and detailed as those taken with the Realme 6 Pro.
With slightly larger subjects and better lighting, photos taken with the Note 9 Pro look better at first glance. While the details in the pictures were good in the Redmi Note 9 Pro, on the other hand, the Realme 6 Pro handled white balance better. If you look closely at the tiles on the floor in our sample shots, you’ll see more detail in a picture taken with the Realme 6 Pro.
We got some pretty decent results when trying to use the Realme 6 Pro’s optical zoom camera in low light. The Redmi Note 9 Pro also captures good pictures with its 2x digital zoom, but makes the subject sharper in the picture.
Both the smartphones can record 4K video, but the lack of stability is clearly visible in the video at this resolution. Videos taken with both phones in good light come out with decent detail, but the Note 9 Pro accentuates colors a bit, especially blue shades. However, stabilization does come in handy for smoothing videos recorded at 1080p on both phones and here we found the Redmi Note 9 Pro to do a little better.
In low light, we found the video quality of the Realme 6 Pro to be slightly better, as the video came out brighter. At 1080p, both phones deliver decent videos with stabilization, but it does bring some distortion to the video. Wide-angle videos look blurry and dull, as this sensor on both phones is weaker than the primary camera.
