2-Minute Review

Let's cut through the noise, and get to the crux of it. 11+ Expert Reviews analysed and summarised by the PhoneCurry Editorial Team, in a short and sweet 2-minute review.

Design

  • Looks elegant and understated while still being eye-catching - the back has a very subtle gradient design where you can see the thunderbolt symbol flashing off the phone
  • The dual hole-punch cutout at the front gives the phone a modern appearance
  • Fingerprint Sensor is embedded in the unlock button and it is insanely quick and a pleasure to use - face recognition continues to be quick too, and works equally well even in the dark
  • The back is Gorilla Glass 5, so scuff marks aren't really an issue
  • The Realme 6 Pro is quite chunky at 8.9mm and a bit heavy at 202g

Display

  • Good 6.6-inch IPS LCD FHD+ display - it gives off quite punchy, and vivid colours
  • The 90Hz refresh rate on the Realme 6 Pro makes for a smooth and seamless visual experience
  • Brightness levels are more than sufficient for outdoor use

Software

  • Software is one place where Realme has taken a big leap, the Realme UI is easy to use - it is also packed with features such as Digital Wellbeing, Focus Mode, Dark Mode, and Riding Mode among others - there are some more interesting and useful features like Realme Dual-Mode Audio, which allows you to connect a Bluetooth and a wired headset at the same time to listen to music on the smartphone
  • There are still a number of pre-loaded apps however (though most of these can thankfully be uninstalled)

Performance

  • Excellent performance for the price - the Snapdragon 720G is a powerful chip, so as expected, general usage and multitasking is handled superbly - gaming performance is nothing to scoff at, the phone handles heavy games like PUBG at the highest settings with ease

Camera

  • Good quad cameras for the price - there's a 64MP primary sensor, an 8MP ultra-wide camera, a 12MP telephoto camera, and a 2MP macro camera
  • Pictures from the primary camera look pretty good with fairly good details and very good dynamic range
  • The HDR mode works quite well and retains the highlights of the picture and there is a good amount of detail in the shadow regions
  • Ultra-wide camera also works well, both indoors and during daylight (though, as expected, quality is not on par with the primary camera)
  • Photos captured by the telephoto camera are decent too - you can zoom upto 20X with a mix of optical and digital zoom
  • Portrait mode works well, even for objects, and the level of depth can be adjusted before you take a shot
  • In low light, the primary camera is pretty capable and manages a fair bit of detail with good colours and you can use the night mode with all cameras except the macro and it helps boost the brightness and detail in the shot
  • Very good dual selfie cameras, 16MP primary and 8MP Ultra-wide - the wide-angle camera is great for taking a group selfie and you can even shoot videos with it
  • The macro lens doesn't really excel at what it is supposed to do, the detailing of the images is low because of the very low 2MP resolution (though, it help take closer shots of smaller subjects)

Battery

  • Very good battery life with the 4300 mAh cell - the 6 Pro delivers a solid day and a half of battery life, even with heavy usage
  • The bundled 30W fast charger is very quick and manages to charge the battery from zero to about 90 percent in an hour

Verdict

  • The Realme 6 Pro is a good overall package that offer almost everything that one would want from mid-range phone - it looks great, offers powerful performance, clicks stunning pictures in almost all lightning situations, and delivers long lasting battery life - the inclusion of wide-angle selfie camera and telephoto camera gives it an extra edge over the competition
  • However, the Realme 6 Pro and the Realme X2 have very similar features, camera capabilities and performance, and the only really differentiating factors are their design and displays and if you would prefer an AMOLED panel and an in-display fingerprint sensor, the Realme X2 would be the one to pick
