There is a base model that comes just under 3000 RMB in China, which is about four hundred and fifty dollars. Is that version really any different to the other versions? Is it so much different to the K 30 Pro zoom addition that you should pay the extra money and go for these room addition, or is the base model plenty good enough? Let'S, compare the two and see where the differences are. Firstly, in the screens, they are absolutely exactly the same on every single one of these phones, the battery size and the charging specs are again the same across all of the versions, even the cheap version up to the most expensive pro zoom Edition have exactly the same Battery specs actually it's just quicker to tell you what's different between the base model and all of the other models. It uses a different form of RAM and storage. It uses a last generation lpddr4 X, Ram, whereas all of the other versions, including the zoom Edition, use, lpddr4, and it also uses ufs 3.0 storage, whereas all of the other versions use ufs 3.1. So before I get into a quick camera comparison between the phones I just wanted to test, is there really a difference between these RAM and storage options, so put them side by side and, firstly, just ran an ante to benchmark? And yes, the pro zoom Edition did come out on top of the base model, but really not by much.
It is definitely in the same ballpark and just using these phones for the last day or so honestly, you could not tell the difference when you're, just using the phones normally between the different setups in the pros oome Edition and the base model. The only difference for me that could make a difference in terms of how you use the phone and how convenient it is, is maybe the difference in RAM, because the base model only has six gigabytes. I opened up this list of apps exactly the same on both of the phones and just went through the apps and tested if any will shut down in any of the phones. So, as you can see, as I flick through all of the different apps that are exactly the same on these two models, you will see that all of the apps are kept in memory on both of the phones, even though the prozumenshikov bytes of ram – and it Is an LP ddr5 ram instead of the lpddr4 ex that is found in the base model opening this music app? This was just an advert screen on this phone. It didn't reload the app, so both phones literally performed exactly the same, even though they had slightly different internal setups. I tend to think app. Opening tests are a little bit irrelevant, but I wanted to open these very heavy games from memory just to see if this storage difference made any speed difference in opening the apps.
As you can see in this test, they were literally loaded from the storage at exactly the same time on both phones. So, for me there is no difference whatsoever in the pros oome edition and the base model in terms of loading apps using apps and keeping apps in memory. So when it comes to the cameras, the pro zoom Edition has that extra three times telephoto zoom lens over the base model and the non suum edition, which doesn't have a zoom ends at all. Also, there is a slight and very subtle design difference between the zoom Edition. They both have this Oreo shaped camera cutout, but these room addition just adds this circular accent around the camera bump on the body of the phone which the base model and the non zoom Edition don't have. So when using the two phones. There is a difference in the camera app: they both have the ultra wide camera, the main camera and they both have a zoom option. The base model and the non zoom go to a 2x telephoto zoom, but that will be cropped in on the main sensor, whereas the zoom Edition has a 3 x telephoto zoom, using that extra zoom lens. The zoom Edition goes to a 30 x telephoto at the longest zoom, whereas the non zoom editions go to a 10 x. You can just see me here pinching on the screen on the zoom Edition. You can hold down the zoom button and then slide up and down to zoom in and out on the non zoom Edition it doesn't have that you have to pinch the screen.
It definitely is a very weird difference that redmi did this. This seems to be a software limitation. Maybe they want to differentiate the two. If you were in a store and saw the two phones side by side, one could zoom really easily and one couldn't, maybe you'd, be puffed into buying the more expensive model. Other than that, though, the camera apps are exactly the same in terms of video and slo mo, and video recording rates and resolutions going from the ultra wide here, which is a 13 megapixel on both phones, then to the main camera, which again should look exactly the Same and now you can see the different zoom ranges here, a two times versus a three times telephoto and another test here from the ultra wide, which looks exactly the same. I think, then, going into the main sensor again looks exactly the same, and you can see the difference between two and three times: telephoto on the phones and then at ten times zoom, which is the maximum for the non zoom Edition. The zoom Edition could go on to 20 times zoom and then max out at 30 times zoom, which is here there is an extra zoom range, but I honestly feel like it is pretty noisy and I'm, not sure you could really use this 30 times zoom shot Anyway, they both have optical image stabilization on the main lens, even in the zoom edition, and when you zoom in for video, it does not use the zoom lens.
You are always shooting of the main lens for video, but you can see here the zoom Edition zooms into a three times, whereas the non zoom edition zooms into a two times so yeah that's a really important thing to note on the zoom Edition for video. It will use the main camera sensor, no matter what you zoom in and out of the same as the base model. So you shouldn't be getting any better results from the zoom Edition in video, at least when it comes to zoom on any of the files in photo, though you do get a difference. The optical zoom range from that three times. Telephoto just gives you a crisper image at that three times. However, I really don't think the difference is massive. It seems like a lot of money to pay for a tiny difference in the zoom range only on photo and not in video. Also on the non zoom Edition, you get the really awesome macro sensor to the price difference between the base model and the base model of the zoom Edition in China at least, is about 30, which is quite a lot of money for an extras camera that gives You a tiny bit of extra zoom in photo only so let me know your thoughts.
