Samsung Galaxy S7 (2016) vs Xiaomi Redmi Note 6 (late 2018)

Analysis:

The Samsung Galaxy S7 Edge (2016) is an example of a great Smartphone at its $360 budget.

In the case of the Xiaomi Redmi Note 6 Pro (late 2018), however, we weren't able to find enough data to come to any reliable conclusions.

While the Samsung Galaxy S7 Edge (2016) wasn't able to make it to the very top of any roundups from sources that perform quality hands-on testing, it still got featured in a large number of them. What Hi-Fi?, Techradar, Expert Reviews, TechSpot, GSMArena, Android Authority, CNET, TrustedReviews, PCmag, PhoneArena, Tom's Guide, DXOMARK, Gear Patrol, and GadgetMatch have all deemed it worthy of a place on their respective shortlists.

As for the Xiaomi Redmi Note 6 Pro (late 2018), it wasn't able to earn a top spot in any roundups from trusted sources that conduct their own hands-on testing. Nevertheless, it managed to impress reviewers at GSMArena, Techradar, and Android Authority enough to make it onto their respective shortlists.

When we thoroughly analyzed their review scores, we learned that all of the sources that tested both Smartphones, including Techradar and GSMArena, preferred the Samsung Galaxy S7 Edge (2016) over the Xiaomi Redmi Note 6 Pro (late 2018).

We also took a look at which sources they managed to impress the most. The Samsung Galaxy S7 Edge (2016) was liked best by T3, which gave it a score of 10, while the Xiaomi Redmi Note 6 Pro (late 2018) got its highest, 8.2, score from GSMArena.

Lastly, we averaged out all of the reviews scores that we could find on these two products and compared them to other Smartphones on the market. We learned that both of them performed far better than most of their competitors - the overall review average earned by Smartphones being 7.5 out of 10, whereas the Samsung Galaxy S7 Edge (2016) and Xiaomi Redmi Note 6 Pro (late 2018) managed averages of 9.2 and 8.1 points, respectively.

Due to the difference in their prices, however, it's important to keep in mind that a direct Samsung Galaxy S7 Edge (2016) vs. Xiaomi Redmi Note 6 Pro (late 2018) comparison might not be entirely fair - some sources don't take value for money into account when assigning their scores and therefore have a tendency to rate more premium products better.
