2-Minute Review

Let's cut through the noise, and get to the crux of it. 12+ Expert Reviews analysed and summarised by the PhoneCurry Editorial Team, in a short and sweet 2-minute review.

Design

  • Nice simple, metal unibody design - it looks identical to almost every other Redmi phone that has launched in the past year, and the metal unibody design has been done to death, but it makes sense for this segment where durability is more important than a stunning glass design - overall the phone is built robustly and will take a few scratches and bumps
  • Pretty compact too, which aids one-handed use

Display

  • The new modern tall 'notch' display introduces the notch to the entry-level segment, and has a good resolution
  • Although this is a tall, 'notch' display, the bezels (specially the chin) are more significant than some other tall displays out there

Software

  • MIUI is one of the better Android UIs, and comes packed with features, and customizability options

Performance

  • Pretty decent day-to-day performance backed by the reliable (though now aging) Qualcomm Snapdragon 625 - the SoC is known for its power efficiency which is ideal for a budget device - of course if you want to do heavy gaming, you should probably look at something better
  • While the Snapdragon 625 is perfectly good for daily use, you do have the option of Snapdragon 636 devices in this price bracket, like the Asus Max M1 Pro

Camera

  • Decent rear dual cameras - in daytime, the photos come out fairly sharp and crisp, and bokehs are pretty good too
  • Selfies come out fairly rich and vibrant too, as long as the lighting is good
  • Overall, the cameras are somewhere in the middle of Xiaomi's last generation series - they are significantly better than Redmi 5, slightly better than Redmi Note 5, but a level behind the Redmi Note 5 Pro

Audio

  • Very good audio quality, excellent speaker loudness and output

Battery

  • Good battery life with a solid 4000mAh battery that will comfortably last over a day
  • Decent charging speed (though it does not support fast charging) - you will be able to top up the battery from 0 to 100% in about 2 hours, 10 minutes

More

  • Overall, the the Redmi 6 Pro comes off as a reliable and functional compact phone in this price bracket - having said that, it will face some stiff competition from the likes of the Asus Zenfone Max Pro M1 (which runs on the Snapdragon 636 and has stock Android interface) apart from it's own siblings like the Redmi Note 5 Pro (which again runs on the Snapdragon 636, and has a significantly better camera)
