Neither. They are not VFM considering there is Zenfone Max Pro M1 at 11k and 13k.
Kirin 659 on a >10k phone doesn't makes sense.
 
Yeah, Asus Zenfone Max Pro is a better choice for that price unless someone is looking for a compact phone, in which case Honor 9N can be considered.

Like mentioned above, good competitors at that price range+that skin and the notch is a deal breaker.

Note is much sturdy having a unibody design, Honor, on the other hand, can have much better signal connectivity due to glass back!

Design wise I'll go with Honor 9N, but in the end, what're inside matters and EMUI downgrades it all!

The Honor 9N as well as the Xiaomi Redmi Note 5 offer a taller aspect ratio. However, the the display itself on the two devices is quite different.

The Honor 9N features a reasonably large 5.84-inch display. However, the Redmi Note 5 tops that with a slightly larger 5.99-inch display.

The Honor 9N offers an aspect ratio of 19:9 with Full HD+ resolution of 2280 x 1080 pixels. This is slightly more than the 2160 x 1080 pixel resolution offered by the Xiaomi Redmi Note 5.

Due to its larger size and slightly lower pixel count, the Redmi Note 5 offers a slightly lower pixel density of 403 ppi as compared to the 432 ppi offered by the Honor 9N.

Of course, the most notable difference between the display on the two phones is the inclusion of a notch. The Honor 9N has it, but the Redmi Note 5 does not.

The notch on the 9N may not appeal to everyone’s taste, but it does help offer a higher screen-to-body ratio.

So, which display do you think is better? Is the inclusion of the notch reason enough for you to choose one over the other?
