The design of the Redmi Note 6 pro is similar to its predecessors but with a bigger and high-quality display. The right side has volume button. The button feedback is good. On the top, this mobile has a 3.5mm earphone jack, an optional mouthpiece, and an IR producer which can be utilized to control apparatuses. The left side of the mobile is bare and has only slot for sim and memory card. The back of the mobile is shiny and curved which makes the mobile easy to hold. The weight of the smartphone is 182 gms which is good and is power-packed with a 4000 mAh battery.
The display is much bigger than its predecessor and is vibrant and good looking. It displays vibrant colors and the image quality is crisp. You can tweak the color temperature and white balance although the pre-existing display is good. With the given budget, Redmi Note 6 pro has the best display out there.
The Redmi Note 6 Pro has dual camera on both front and back side. The rear camera has a 12MP primary lens with 1.9 aperture and LED flash. The secondary 5MP lens acts as depth sensor. The more pleasing quality is the camera’s ability to focus the objects within a fraction of seconds. The resulting images are clear and bright.
The 20 MP primary lens equipped with Super pixel technology, improves the image pixels. The 2MP secondary lens acts as depth sensors and helps in capturing good selfies. Overall, the camera quality is excellent for this price range.
Performance and software:
This is where the Redmi disappoints us. The Redmi Note 6 pro uses the same Snapdragon 636. There is no upgrade in software wise. The Snapdragon 636, with it's eight Kryo 260 centers timed at 1.8GHz, is currently maturing rapidly with the arrival of the Snapdragon 660 and the Kirin 710 being offered in a similar cost. The mobile runs on Android OS 8.1 Oreo and also has MIUI 10.
If the internal storage is not sufficient, you can add micro SD card expandable up to 256 GB. The mobile runs smooth on adding micro SD card and can perform multitasking smoothly. You can switch between apps with ease. The gaming is good but not suitable for heavy games. The mobile comes with hydrophobic nano coating which saves the mobile from spills and water splash.
The Redmi Note 6 Pro is power packed with a 400mAh battery. Even though the company promises that battery lasts for 2 days, it doesn't seem like that during testing. The phone can last for a solid one day in heavy usage. The major disappointment with the battery and charging is that it does not have a power charging and also has no C- port type.The battery can withstand heavy gaming with minimal power drainage.
In nations where Xiaomi has made incredible progress, the elements for said achievement were apparently straightforward - pick a generally lacking area and fill it with minimal effort high-esteem handsets, do this process again. In endeavouring to conquer the west, the maker faces a difficult task in persuading the more extensive buyer market to purchase its handsets, as the market is developed and brimming with great worth alternatives.
For those ready to dive in, the Redmi Note 6 Pro is a massively refined handset at the cost point. Flaunting a huge, vivid and splendid screen, a gigantic battery, an amazing chipset, a flexible camera and a top notch plan, it more than satisfies its value point. It truly is hard to improve equipment at the cost.
