I don t quite get the comparison between a brick wall and a reinforced concrete wall.
Concrete wall vs brick wall.
A reinforced concrete wall would typically be used where there are bending moments present such as retaining walls.

Concrete blocks can be strengthened after construction with the addition of reinforcing bars through the hollows secured by grout or cement poured into the openings.
Concrete is also incredibly strong allowing you to engineer retaining walls of significant heights.
A brick wall has strength only in compression virtually no resistance to bending moments.
Cost of concrete retaining walls.
Your eye can tell the difference.
Rakshita thank you so much for the a2a.
A hand laid brick wall consists of multiple individual bricks requires a lengthy installation process of hard labor.
Such a reinforced concrete block wall whether dry stacked or laid with mortar will have roughly the same strength as a precast concrete wall with similar size and reinforcing.
Your question has already received 6 wonderful replies.
While a somewhat sturdy medium if pushed upon a brick fence has tendency toward crumbling making it limited in strength.
According to the mac a single large lightweight concrete block can cost around 11 00 installed while a heavier block costs as much as 15 00.
The colors in concrete masonry made up of pigments in the cement paste are flatter than those in clay brick and exhibit less vibrancy in hue.
