The quality of all the three handsets is good but the respect is better than the 7C Redmi 5 because the later plastic is up and down.

8. GeekBench - Redmi 5 Vs Honor 9 Lite Vs Honor 7C Overall Comparison & Specifications

Performance and Gaming

On starting with the benchmark, Honor 9Lite takes a lead. While 7C and Redmi 5 earned almost identical points on Geekbench. On 3derm, Honor 7C is the biggest score after Redmi 5 and Honor 9 Lite respectively.

During normal use, the three runs fine. Common social apps such as Twitter, Facebook and WhatsApp, multimedia apps like music player, YouTube streaming video apps, and utility apps like Peti and Umang work fine.

Normal games like Moto Racer, Clash of Clans and Hill Climb Racing also work fine.

But when I switch into a game of rich graphics, the conflict starts at Redmi 5 and Honor 7C. I was trying to play Shadow Fight 3, Pub and Asphalt 8 on all three handsets. While Redmi 5 and 7C started logging after only 5 minutes, Honor 9 Lite managed to run them smoothly. But yes, after 30 minutes, the random stator started appearing on 9 lights.

Graphics rendering on all handsets is average with 9 lights. On the other hand, display of Honor 7C and Redmi 5 is more or less similar. I saw frames drops often during heavy sports. In contrast, 9 Light managed to run the game even on this game, although random frame drops were also seen on this device.

Despite having the same processor, the performance of Redmi 5 in multi-tasking is better than Honor 7C. I was able to switch between heavy and normal applications without any intervals. On the contrary, 7C operates normally when switching between normal games, but it becomes frozen while switching between heavy people. The Honor 9 Lite is better than the other two. This is not a gap.


7. 3DMark - Redmi 5 Vs Honor 9 Lite Vs Honor 7C Overall Comparison & Specifications

The camera

After looking at the samples, I think this comparison was between Honor 9 Lite and Redmi 5. Probably not in the Honor 7C photo.

On Daylight, the Honor 7C average daylight photo clicks with a lot of detail and less color achievement. By contrast, Redmi 5 is better than Honor 7C. Image quality, color frenzy and details are better at Redmi 5, though Honor 9 lite is not better than.

As we are in your previous post, HDR mode does not work on Honor 7C. There really is no difference between the HDR and non-HDR photos. On the other hand, Redmi 5 is good. When HDR mode is on, I can see more detail, tone and better color sensation, but when I keep these samples against Honor 9 Light, then I am getting better with 9 Light Redmi 5.

And here’s the Bokey mode – the only scenario where all three smartphones are equally good. I could not find any noticeable difference between their sample.

Coming to low light, the Honor 7C is out of the picture. Click pictures of Redmi 5 and Honor 9 Lite Average Iron, later take lead in case of description, sharpness and glow. Honor 7C, on the other hand, goes with dark pictures with less details.

Another interesting point is that the light part of the Honor 9 Lite image is not of much importance, while 7C and Redmi are 5.

Honor 7C does not help at all to turn on HDR mode. There is no difference between HDR and non-HDR images. On the other hand, Redmi 5 and Honor 9 Lite, work well with later leadership in the context of the description. Color on these handsets is a casual average.

Coming to self, Honor 7C is good but not better than Redmi 5, which is following Honor 9Lite. 9 light is the best among them in terms of realistic colors and catching better details. Redmi 5 and 7C respectively are continuous.
The only case with beauty mode is. Leaded sophists from the Honor 9Lite are fast with good color accomplishment and detail. Redmi 5 and 7C respectively are continuous.

One thing is worth mentioning that the Redmi 5 manages to keep the beauty face in the form of natural face.

During normal use, they all live on the same charge one day but their backup time decreases up to 14-16 hours during medium utilization.
During heavy gaming and marathon use, none of them stays more than 4 hours.
None of them come with fast charging. For more than 2 hours to charge the Honor 9 Lite and Honor 7C batteries, take more than 2 hours. On the other hand, Redmi 5 took 2 hours and 15 minutes to fully charge the battery.


Our Verdict

In this comparative article, Honor 7C was completely out of the picture. To be true, I think the comparison was between Redmi 5 and Honor 9 Lite. Honor 7C has decent specifications, but the performance of the camera and processor is average. On the other hand, Redmi 5 is better than Honor 7C, whether we talk about camera or performance but this is not better than Honor 9 Lite.

In this comparative article, Honor 9 Lite is a winner with better performance and cameras, although Redmi 5 is followed closely.
