Thanks to its dual-rear camera setup, the Honor 9N is able to offer hardware level bokeh effects, which the Redmi Note 5 can’t do.
But you forgot about Redmi Note 5 pro which is priced same a Honor 9N and has best camera for 15 thousand budget. Stop delibreately ignoring better phones.

the Redmi Note 5, despite having a good hand feel, doesn't impress us with its dated design. The only substantial change is on the front, where the company has chopped off some bezels to extend the display. From the back, it still looks like you are holding a Redmi Note 4. Sure, Xiaomi has added some curves to the back and sides which makes it more handy, but that's never enough.

Why consider RN5 when 9N is trying to compete with RN5 Pro because of the pricing?

And for those who wanted Xiaomi to release Mi A2 lite, the Redmi Note 5 is identical to it and with help of tutorials, you can get Android One software on it. This is not possible on Honor 9N.

In terms of camera, the honor 9N features a dual-rear camera setup with 13mp+2mp. The redmi note5 features a single 12mp rear camera and i found slightly more detail and realistic colors on 9N, while the Redmi Note 5 Pro had a tendency to saturate colors at times. Portrait mode on both phones worked well. The front facing camera of the 9N has a lower megapixel coun, but scores on a bigger aperture and this results in better low light selfies. Both front cameras incidentally handle face unlock very well, although we once again felt that the 9N was just a little faster than the Note 5 Pro.
