PROS Capable camera Well-optimised software Improved display unique CONS Lackluster design Outperformed by other devices Only one storage variant


The Xiaomày Redngươi cảnh báo 6 Pro, despite being a reliable device, isn't the best smartphone in the mid-range segment anymore. Xiaongươi frankly borrowed a leaf out of OnePlus' book và refined the popular Redngươi Note 5 Pro, & didn't really nâng cấp it. And in the mid-range segment where loyalties shift with a bump in megapixels or RAM, the Redmày lưu ý 6 Pro could be threatened by other, more powerful devices in that category. Read on to find out why.

Xiaomày Redmi Note 6 Pro detailed nhận xét

The Xiaomày Redmi cảnh báo 6 Pro comes just eight months after the launch of its predecessor, the Redngươi Note 5 Pro. In a recent IDC report, Xiaomày remained in top of the Indian điện thoại thông minh market and grew by an astonishing 27 percent. The chief drivers of the growth were the affordable Redngươi 5A and the Redmày Note 5 Pro. When the cảnh báo 5 Pro launched baông chồng in February 2018, it phối a benchmark for performance in the mid-range segment by introducing the Snaprồng 636 alongside 6 gigs of RAM. No wonder it sold like hot cakes.

With the Xiaongươi Redngươi Note 6 Pro, Xiaomi has done something that OnePlus is known to vì. Xiaongươi refreshed it’s best-selling offering in a short span of time, improving upon the usability with new software-based features, while leaving out a notable hardware tăng cấp. While that has worked out well for OnePlus so far in the high-over segment, the mid-range category is a whole different story. With the likes of the Realme 2 Pro, the Moto lớn One Power, and Xiaomi’s own Mi A2 for company in that segment, the Redngươi cảnh báo 6 Pro has a tough road ahead to glory.

Will its follow-up, the Redmi chú ý 6 Pro live up khổng lồ the same hype? More importantly, is it still the high performer? Let’s find out.


The Redmi chú ý 6 Pro is basically the old cảnh báo 5 Pro, but with a notch cut-out in the display. As ugly as the notch looks, Xiaomày gave in khổng lồ the growing demand of a larger, bezel-less display and the notch was the only way to give the people what they wanted. It doesn’t really help things here as the notch is rather wide và offers little space on either sides for icons and notifications. It’s also quite pesky và refuses to go if you’re playing a game like PubG unless you manually turn it off. The notch is present while you’re reading an article and but not when you’re watching a đoạn phim on YouTube.

Hello notch, my old friend!

Xiaomi’s thiết kế philosophy was once appreciated và even copied across the segment. One of the primary proponents of the metal-body toàn thân design in the price-range, Xiaomi’s Redmi cảnh báo series popularised the kiến thiết cues that are now present in almost all Xiaongươi phones in the budget and mid-range segment. The company does experiment with other materials lượt thích ceramic in its flagship products and even kevlar lượt thích it did in the Poco F1. I can safely say the metal body thiết kế now looks plain boring. Heông xã, it’s now difficult to lớn tell one Xiaomi phone apart from the other if you’re looking at them from the back. Despite that, one has khổng lồ admit that these metal-bodied phones are anyday more durable than your glass-sandwich ones even though the latter looks much, much better. You’re anyway going to slap a case on it & if that’s the case, there’s no point calling Xiaomày out for using a recurring thiết kế if it’s made lớn last. But then, the Redngươi chú ý 5 Pro unit we had received for review, doesn’t work all that well now. The power button on the right needs lớn be pressed harder lớn have sầu it register. Hopefully, the Redmi chú ý 6 Pro has better internal construction and durability.

The side bulges are the only thing distinctive in the design

While there’s hardly any major difference in the design of the Redmi chú ý 6 Pro, Xiaomày did introduce slightly curved edges on the baông xã, with sides that bulge out from the body. It does help in gripping the phone better. The rounded corners also doesn’t let the phone dig into lớn the palm. The dual-camera unit on the baông chồng is aligned vertically on the top left corner with the fingerprint sensor located centrally, right where the index finger can reach. The Redngươi lưu ý 6 Pro also shaved off the bezels from below, but only by a hair & unless you’re comparing the Note 6 Pro against the chú ý 5 Pro side-by-side, there’s no way to tell. It’s quite a big bezel though & phones lượt thích the Honor 8X are honestly a better alternative sầu if a bezel-less display is what you’re looking for in a phone.

I have sầu mixed feelings about the Redmi Note 6 Pro’s kiến thiết. At the fag end of the year, after using a bunch of Xiaomày devices that look all the same, I’ve grown tired of the reiteration. However, it’s durable và can take more scratches & bumps than a glass-bodied phone, and that should be a priority in the mid-range segment.


This is where the Redmày chú ý 6 Pro primarily differs from the Redngươi chú ý 5 Pro. The lưu ý 6 Pro sports a larger 6.26-inch display that has an ugly notch on top, which is how Xiaomi increased the screen kích thước without increasing the footprint of the phone. However, most of the extra screen real-estate is eaten up by the notch itself, & there’s hardly any space for the icons & notifications. The phone does offer the option to lớn turn the notch off, but you have sầu khổng lồ do it manually by whitelisting apps. Videos are cut out in 16:9 aspect ratio by default và in apps lượt thích YouTube you can stretch it khổng lồ 18:9 aspect ratio, but there will still be space left unused. The notch, like we have sầu mentioned countless times, serves no purpose whatsoever, và should just go.

Colours on the Redmày Note 6 Pro are a little more vibrant

Apart from that, the panel on the Redmày cảnh báo 6 Pro is of a higher chất lượng than it’s predecessor. While the brightness levels are more or less the same (500 lux), colours are more vibrant và crisp on this one. The phone also offers options to tweak the trắng balance and colour temperature, but if you don’t know what you're doing, it’s better lớn maintain the mặc định settings.

Performance và Software

This is where there’s hardly any difference in between the Redmày lưu ý 6 Pro và it’s predecessor. All other Redngươi cảnh báo phone have sầu outperformed their respective predecessors in both benchmark tests and in real-world usage, but not this one. The Redmày Note 6 Pro relies on the same Snapdragon 636 SoC coupled with either 4GB or 6GB RAM, along with 64GB storage. While the hardware configuration did excite us in the beginning of the year, by the end of 2018, it has become the standard. The SnapLong 636, with it’s eight Kryo 260 cores clocked at 1.8GHz, is now aging quickly in the face of the Snaprồng 660 & the Kirin 710 being offered in the same price. The benchmark reports corroborate that.



On AnTuTu, the Redmi chú ý 6 Pro scored 116046 against the Redmày Note 5 Pro’s 112652, while the Realme 2 Pro with a Snaprồng 660 outscored both of them with 128430 & the Mi A2 trumped even that score with 128895. With similar price points, it becomes an easy choice if you’re looking for the best performance. On Geekbench Single Core & Multi Core tests that puts the CPU capabilities to lớn kiểm tra, the Redmày Note 6 Pro scored 1632 và 3233 respectively. The scores are once again in line with the Redmi lưu ý 5 Pro and the Hãng Asus Zenfone Max Pro M1 và here again, the Realme 2 Pro & the Mi A2 outperformed the chú ý 6 Pro with significantly higher scores. Even on 3DMark Slingshot, which tests the graphics processing capabilities of a device, the scores are similar for both the Redngươi cảnh báo 6 Pro và it’s predecessor while the Mi A2 và the Realme 2 Pro outscored it by a long margin.

Based on the performance benchmark scores, it’s easy to lớn see that the Redngươi cảnh báo 6 Pro is not the best Xiaomày has to offer in that price. The Mi A2, with the Snapdragon 660 SoC và Android One-certified stochồng Android UI is what we would recommend, but if you’re married to the MIUI ecosystem, the Redmi chú ý 6 Pro is your next best option.

In real-world usage, the difference in performance isn’t all that much. The phone runs MIUI 10 out of the box và it’s optimised brilliantly for the phone. I didn’t face any lag or stutter while opening apps, or browsing the mạng internet. However, the MIUI 10 interface on this phone is based on Android 8.1 Oreo và not the lachạy thử Android version. The new update brings gesture-based navigation và a new recent apps thực đơn which is more card-based & arranged vertically. There’s tư vấn for autofill now, and a new tiện ích management system in Settings. More than that, MIUI feels fast & snappy with quiông xã animations. The phone also boots quickly in around 30 seconds và apps launch slightly faster than the cảnh báo 5 Pro.

PubG thiết bị di động is playable on this phone

Gaming on the Redmi Note 6 Pro is not the best experience. Most games will run although the graphically-demanding ones have to be played in low or medium settings. We played PubG sản phẩm điện thoại on the Redmày cảnh báo 6 Pro with GameBench plugged in, & it recorded a stable FPS of 25. On flagships like the OnePlus 6T, you get around 40 FPS. While FPS count isn’t as much as what flagships offer, you vì get stable gameplay with a variability index of 1 FPS on an average across five sầu sessions we tested.

It goes without saying that even though this isn’t the faskiểm tra phone in the mid-range segment by any means, it’s fairly reliable & functional & will not let you down.


The Redmi cảnh báo 6 Pro while not offering any upgrades in raw performance, ups the ante when it comes to imaging. The phone’s dual camera unit at the baông chồng is better thanks khổng lồ a bigger sensor with larger 1.4um pixels và a wider f/1.9 aperture as compared to that on the Redmi Note 5 Pro. On the front, inside that ugly notch are two sensors as well for selfies. The secondary sensor, lượt thích that on the rear, is used for calculating the depth of field.

The notch houses dual front cameras

The camera on the Redmi chú ý 6 Pro is much better than the Redngươi Note 5 Pro’s. In the day as well as in low-light, the Redmày lưu ý 6 Pro takes images that are aesthetically pleasing. The camera relies on machine learning to recognise scenes across 32 categories including buildings, greenery, animals, people, etc. The AI mode is turned off by mặc định & once you turn it on, it automatically recognises what you’re shooting within 1-2 seconds, but what it’s actually doing after recognising is not clear. In some instances, lượt thích shooting foliage, the greens vì look more vibrant while low-light photos are processed using noise-reduction algorithms. But there’s no real clarity on what the AI is doing in reality. But to lớn cut things short, the Redmi Note 6 Pro can take good photos that are sharp, vibrant và are visually appealing.

We did an article after testing the camera extensively where we concluded the camera on the Redmày cảnh báo 6 Pro is more than capable of taking good photos, và is much better than that on the Redmi Note 5 Pro. But the Mi A2 trumps it in low-light with its pixel-binning technique. The chú ý 6 Pro applies the same technique for selfies with its 20+2MPhường. front camera and the selfies vì come out better in low-light because of it.



Further, the chú ý 6 Pro offers a new experience of portrait mode with dynamic bokeh. The blurred part warps inlớn different shapes và if you ask me, I found them pretty cool. The phone also has various lighting effects & thankfully, Xiaomi’s implementation works much better than what the Realme 2 Pro or the Honor 8X offers.

Overall, the Redngươi chú ý 6 Pro’s primary claim to lớn fame is the camera. That’s where most of the work has gone in developing the phone.


What a day-and-a-half battery life looks like

The Redmày lưu ý 6 Pro with its 4,000mAh battery offers the same one and a half day battery life lượt thích its predecessor. While we would have liked a bigger battery on the phone like the Hãng Asus Zenfone Max Pro M1, this one is more than enough to last the entire day. What’s disappointing is that Xiaomi offers a 5V charger out of the box that can’t fast-charge the device. It still uses a micro-USB port lớn charge even when the Mi A2, offered at nearly the same price has a USB-Type C port. The battery drain while playing PubG was around 15 percent for a full 30-minute session which isn’t all that bad considering other phones also have sầu similar drainage pattern.

The Redmày cảnh báo 6 Pro, lượt thích we noted before is no longer a leader in the mid-range segment. With underwhelming performance, and a lacklustre design, it’s now a follower. It’s still offers good value for your money though, it’s just not the best, which is what we expect from Redmi’s lưu ý lineup anyway. The Note 6 Pro somewhat redeems itself with good imaging prowess, but if you’re looking for an out-and-out performer, the Realme 2 Pro or the Honor 8X are phones you can consider. Or if you have sầu khổng lồ stiông xã khổng lồ Xiaongươi & can make vị with stochồng Android, the Mi A2 is a no-brainer. To be frank, I couldn’t find a legit reason lớn recommover the lưu ý 6 Pro apart from the high value for money. In the mid-range segment where spec-sheets rule the roost & kiến thiết slowly getting noticed, Xiaomi could have spent a few more months and followed up the popular Redmi lưu ý 5 Pro with a worthy successor.
