2-Minute Review

Let's cut through the noise, and get to the crux of it. 7 Expert Reviews analysed and summarised by the PhoneCurry Editorial Team, in a short and sweet 2-minute review.

Design

  • Has a visibly smaller profile than its predecessor (Redmi 5), and is a joy to handle, thanks to its smaller footprint, especially if you struggle while using the large screen smartphones out there
  • The fingerprint sensor is blazing fast, and there is also 'Face Unlock' that works fine in well-lit conditions
  • While the phone looks pretty decent, the glossy plastic build is arguably a step backwards from the metal build of the Redmi 5 - if aesthetics and better build quality are what you are after, the older Redmi 5 is the better option - or you can also check out the Realme 2, which offers a unique dual-glass design with some eye-catching patterns on the rear panel

Display

  • Good, modern, tall display at this price point - delivers punchy colors, though sunlight legibility could have been a little better

Software

  • MIUI is one of the nicer Android UIs, and is quite feature-rich

Performance

  • The Helio P22 is a bit better than the Redmi 5's Snapdragon 450, and you can certainly see a performance jump in terms of gaming - for a device at this price point, the Redmi 6 comes across as surprisingly good with gaming performance

Camera

  • Packs a good dual rear camera set-up - as far as the Redmi 6’s camera performance is considered, it rises above its budget status and delivers some pretty good quality images for a smartphone at this price - in well-lit conditions, it can take click some really nice photos with good color accuracy and minimal noise - in fact, in daylight, the Redmi 6 is simply the best at its price point - the portrait shots clicked by the Redmi 6 are also quite vibrant and the depth reproduction is adequate too - the colors are accurate too, especially if the photos are clicked in outdoor environments under abundant sunlight
  • Overall, the quality of the rear camera is one area where the Redmi 6 is a significant upgrade over the Redmi 5
  • Decent selfie camera too - manages to capture some decent shots, and bokeh shots are fine to
  • Low light performance is more of a mixed bag, with not that great color reproduction

Audio

  • The repositioned loudspeaker at the rear is not the best decision - sound will tend to be muffled when the phone is placed on its back - considering that the Redmi 5 had it on the bottom frame

Battery

  • Decent battery life - the 3000mAh battery will comfortably provide a full work-day, with moderate use

More

  • Overall, the Redmi 6 looks like yet another winner from Xiaomi - the overall performance, battery life and an above-par photography experience significantly outweigh the drawbacks
  • In the competition, the Realme 2 is a compelling option, but sluggish performance and relatively underwhelming cameras will likely make most people prefer the Redmi 6 - the Redmi 5 might actually be a more serious competitor and will give you better build quality but the Redmi 6 is newer (hence, will receive more updates), has the better camera, and better gaming performance
