2-minute Review [Positives] N/A
  • Nice, simple, understated design - feels quite solid
  • Comfortably compact with a tall 5.45-inch display
  • The curved edges render a good grip, and combined with the compact dimensions, make it easy to use one handed
  • Decent, tall 18:9 display with good brightness levels which make the panel sufficiently legible while indoors
  • MIUI is one of the better Android UIs - the new MIUI 9.6 comes with new features like picture-in-picture and improved notifications
  • The Helio A22 is good enough for basic use, and a bit better than the Snapdragon 425 used in the Redmi 5A, but still this is a phone only meant for basic messaging, browsing, and social media - push it more, or run too many apps, and you will find the phone struggling with the limited 2GB of RAM
  • Decent rear camera for the price - the quality of photos is good enough when there’s ample light - it’s low on dynamic range and colours get lost in the shadows, but it shoots well exposed photos otherwise - indoors too, the camera algorithms work to enhance the saturation and contrast and that results in decent shots
  • Decent front camera too - capable of taking good selfies in favourable lighting conditions
  • Good battery life, with a 3000mAh capacity, and helped by an efficient chipset - with moderate use, the phone should give you around one and a half days of usage
  • Dual 4G, Dual VoLTE support
  • On the whole, the Redmi 6A is another solid ultra-budget option from the Xiaomi camp, that does the basics well - it’s reasonably ok for keeping in touch with your friends and family, surfing the web and even the occasional casual games - but of course, if you are looking for a more powerful phone, you will need to look at higher budgets
2-minute Review [Negatives] N/A
  • No fingerprint sensor (instead the Redmi 6A relies on face unlock and traditional PIN-based unlock)
  • The camera app is a bit sluggish though - it takes some time to focus and there’s a noticeable lag after you’ve shot the photo
  • The speakers are placed at the back and sound gets muffled if you’re watching something holding the phone in the landscape format
  • No support for fast charging (though charging speed is still decent - about 2 hours from 0 to 100%)
