Our review:

     The design of the mobile may not be a head turner but with simple design the Redmi 6A is highly functionable. The screen has round corners which is good and has few spaces on top and bottom. The body is plastic built which is good for the price range and available in four different colours- gold rose gold, black and blue. The phone is light weight and slim. The power and volume buttons are placed on the right and slot for sim and Micro SD crad is placed on the left. 

     The Xiaomi Redmi 6A comes with 5.45 inch IPS LCD display with 720p resolution. The 18:9 display provides a lot of screen space. The Redmi 6A comes with 13MP rear camera and 5MP front camera. The camera quality is of value for this price range. It has a 3000mAh battery which can last a day with moderate use. 

Final verdict:

     With redmi 5A being an average mobile, the new Redmi 6A is surely an upgrade. It is the best entry level smart phone within a budget price. It has two variants with 2GB RAM and 16 GB ROM and 3GB RAM and 32 GB ROM. Choose your preference according to your usage. Eventhough the look isn’t attractive, it is still a best budget phone by Xiaomi and can perform well for entry level smartphone users. You will be happy considering its budget and performance.
