Redmi 6 Pro Design
The handset does come with a Notch display and that makes it interesting. Build and finishing is really good, feels premium. Though the handset is slim, it does feel heavy. The screen is with 19:9 aspect ratio but feels really small cause screen is 5.84 inches.

The hardware is Qualcomm Snapdragon 625 that gives a score of around 77K on Antutu Benchmark. The performance is good, decent, lag free but when it comes to games like PUBG you will need to play is low graphics quality mode. Do check the PUBG gameplay in the video review listed below.
Regarding Redme 6 Pro heating – the max battery temperature I encountered was 38 degrees, handset did heat up but temperature is well under control.
Finger print sensor / face unlock is decently fast and accurate. Only one SIM slot supports 4G VoLTE so you cannot use 2 JIO SIM on this handset, dual VoLTE is not supported. I did not find any issues with network, call quality, the speaker is loud and clear.
Battery Charging time and battery life
There is 4000 mAh battery and it took me up to 3 hours for a full charge. On a full charge you can get one and a half days to two days of mixed battery life based on your usage.
There is 12MP + 5MP dual cameras on the back and that did an impressive job outdoor, however when it comes to indoor / low lighting conditions the camera quality is not that impressive. Redmi 6 Pro camera quality is above average.
Front 5MP selfie turned out great. Do check the samples below. This handset can shoot FHD videos and slow motion videos, you can check the video sample in the Redmi 6 Pro review video listed below. Also both the Front as well as the rear camera supported portrait mode.
The Redmi 6 Pro is a good handset, a decent one with above average performance and above average camera quality. Battery life is pretty impressive thanks to the combination of Snapdragon 625 with 4000 mAh battery.
