Because they have good battery optimization. For example, Xiaomi Redmi Note 7 has 4000mah with chip set of Snapdragon 660 why Xiaomi Mi 9 has 3300mah with chip set of Snapdragon 845.

On mere looking at it, Redmi Note 7 is suppose to last long because of it battery? Right??

But it may interest you to note that the Xiaomi Mi 9 with 3300mah last longer than the Redmi note 7

You can watch video on battery drain on youtube

Expensive phones use a more powerful processor than midrange ones...
A more powerful processor means better battery optimisation...
Which means better battery life!!

This is not totally true. I previously used a Techno L8 plus before I purchased my Xiaomi Mi 6. I was made to believe the the Mi 6 battery will last longer because of higher processor and better battery optimization, but it's not true. Unfortunately, the Mi 6 was stolen.

Now, I am managing a Xiaomi Note 7 and its battery still performs better than the stolen Mi 6 with a higher specs.

I hope you know that you are very funny considering the fact that you're comparing Mi 6 of 2017 and Redmi Note 7 of 2019 when the OS of Mi 6 is MiUi 8 compare to Redmi Note 7 OS with Miui 10

Why not compare Mi 9t to Redmi Note 7 with same OS & battery? Check the video on youtube & see for yourself

Note that with the current update of 2019, Mi 6 can't be compare to Redmi note 7

Please, I don't want to argue this. I have used both devices and trust me, Mi 6 shouldn't be compared to Xiaomi Note 7 on any ground save the battery. Like I previously said, I am only managing the Note 7.

And Mi 6 received an MIUI 10 update.

Lol, Who will buy the next versions if they made the current one perfect. We are all buying dreams & promises, the perfect consumer rabbit hole.

Don't worry Op, the next upgraded version would take care of your worries, Just buy.
