While the set of specifications that are offered by Redmi K20 Pro looks better on paper and its cost is an added benefit, we should also mention that like all other Xiaomi devices, it runs MIUI. Xiaomi’s own UI is baked on top of Android 9.0 Pie. This means that the Redmi K20 Pro, like all other devices with MIUI, will come with a lot of ads and bloatware.
OnePlus 7, on the other hand, may lag behind in terms of specifications on paper, but it will offer you a much smoother experience because OxygenOS does not have too much bloatware. In addition to this, the company is known for rolling out quick updates to its devices to make them better.
If the budget is not a constraint for you, we recommend the OnePlus 7.
